1.   Nature of the Business and Basis of Presentation
Biohaven Ltd. (“we,” “us," "our," "Biohaven" or the “Company”) was incorporated in Tortola, British Virgin Islands in May 2022. Biohaven is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of life-changing treatments in key therapeutic areas, including immunology, neuroscience, and oncology. The Company is advancing its innovative portfolio of therapeutics for diseases, leveraging its proven drug development experience and multiple, proprietary drug development platforms. Biohaven's extensive clinical and preclinical programs include Kv7 ion channel modulation for epilepsy and mood disorders; extracellular protein degradation for immunological diseases; Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin 3 ("TRPM3") antagonism for migraine and neuropathic pain; Tyrosine Kinase 2/Janus Kinase 1 ("TYK2/JAK1") inhibition for neuroinflammatory disorders; glutamate modulation for obsessive compulsive disorder ("OCD"); and spinocerebellar ataxia ("SCA");' myostatin inhibition for neuromuscular and metabolic diseases, including spinal muscular atrophy ("SMA) and obesity; antibody recruiting bispecific molecules ("ARMs") and antibody drug conjugates ("ADCs") for cancer.
The Company is subject to risks and uncertainties common to companies in the biotechnology industry, including, but not limited to, development by competitors of new technological innovations, dependence on key personnel, protection of proprietary technology, compliance with government regulations and the ability to secure additional capital to fund operations. Product candidates currently under development will require significant additional research and development efforts, including preclinical and clinical testing and regulatory approval, prior to commercialization. These efforts may require additional capital, additional personnel and infrastructure, and further regulatory and other capabilities. Even if the Company’s product development efforts are successful, it is uncertain when, if ever, the Company will realize significant revenue from product sales.
Separation from Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd.
On October 3, 2022, Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd. (the “Former Parent”) completed the distribution (the “Distribution”) to holders of its common shares of all of the outstanding common
shares of Biohaven Ltd. and the spin-off of Biohaven Ltd. from the Former Parent (the “Spin-Off”) described in Biohaven’s Information Statement attached as Exhibit 99.1 to Biohaven’s Registration Statement on Form 10, as amended (Reg. No. 001-41477). Collectively, we refer to the Distribution and Spin-Off throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as the "Separation." As a result of the Separation, Biohaven Ltd. became an independent, publicly traded company as of October 3, 2022, and commenced regular way trading under the symbol “BHVN”’ on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") on October 4, 2022. Where we describe historical business activities in this report, we do so as if the Former Parent’s activities related to such assets and liabilities had been performed by the Company.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Biohaven Ltd. and our wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Going Concern
In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 205-40, Going Concern, the Company has evaluated whether there are conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued.
Through May 9, 2024, the Company has funded its operations primarily with funding from the Former Parent, proceeds from the public offerings of its common shares, and the cash contribution received from the Former Parent at the Separation. The Company has incurred recurring losses since its inception and expects to continue to generate operating losses for the foreseeable future.
As of the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company expects its existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities will be sufficient to fund operating expenses, financial commitments and other cash requirements for

1.   Nature of the Business and Basis of Presentation (Continued)
at least one year after the issuance date of these financial statements.
To execute its business plans, the Company will require funding to support its continuing operations and pursue its growth strategy. Until such time as the Company can generate significant revenue from product sales or royalties, if ever, it expects to finance its operations through the sale of public or private equity, debt financings or other capital sources, including collaborations with other companies or other strategic transactions. The Company may not be able to obtain financing on acceptable terms, or at all. The terms of any financing may adversely affect the holdings or the rights of the Company’s shareholders. If the Company is unable to obtain funding, the Company could be forced to delay, reduce or eliminate some or all of its research and development programs, product portfolio expansion or commercialization efforts, which could adversely affect its business prospects, or the Company may be unable to continue operations.
2.   Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies" to the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the "2023 Form 10-K"). Updates to our accounting policies are discussed below in this Note 2.
Unaudited Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Information
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. The accompanying year-end condensed consolidated balance sheet was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited annual consolidated financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2024, the results of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023. The
results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2024, any other interim periods or any future year or period.  The financial information included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.
Reclassifications
Certain items in the prior period’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates and assumptions reflected in these condensed consolidated financial statements include, but are not limited to, the accrual for research and development expenses. In addition, management’s assessment of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern involves the estimation of the amount and timing of future cash inflows and outflows. Estimates are periodically reviewed in light of changes in circumstances, facts and experience. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period in which they become known. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Restricted Cash
Restricted cash included in other current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets consists primarily of employee contributions to the Company's employee share purchase plan held for future purchases of the Company's outstanding shares.
Restricted cash included in other non-current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets represents collateral held by banks for a letter of credit ("LOC") issued in connection with the leased office space in Yardley, Pennsylvania and a LOC issued in connection with the leased office space in Cambridge, Massachusetts. See Note 11, ‘‘Commitments and Contingencies’’ for additional information on the real estate leases.

reportable segment disclosure requirements, primarily through enhanced disclosures about significant segment expenses. The amendments in ASU No. 2023-07 apply to public entities, including those with a single reportable segment, and are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact ASU No. 2023-07 will have on its consolidated financial statements
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU No. 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures, to improve the transparency of income tax disclosures by requiring consistent categories and greater disaggregation of information in the rate reconciliation and income taxes paid disaggregated by jurisdiction. The ASU also includes certain other amendments to improve the effectiveness of income tax disclosures. The amendments in ASU 2023-09 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024, with early adoption permitted for annual financial statements that have not yet been issued or made available for issuance.

4.   Fair Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities
The preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires certain assets and liabilities to be reflected at their fair value and others to be reflected on another basis, such as an adjusted historical cost basis. In this note, the Company provides details on the fair value of financial assets and liabilities and how it determines those fair values.
Financial Instruments Measured at Fair Value on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets
Certain assets of the Company are carried at fair value under GAAP. Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:
Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 — Observable inputs (other than Level 1 quoted prices), such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity that are significant to determining the fair value of the assets or liabilities, including pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.

The Company had no financial liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis on the condensed consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.
There were no securities transferred into or out of Level 3 during the three months ended March 31, 2024 or 2023.
The following is a description, including valuation methodology, of the financial assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
Cash Equivalents
Cash equivalents at March 31, 2024 consisted of cash invested in short-term money market funds and debt securities with an original maturity of 90 days or less at the date of purchase. The carrying value of cash equivalents approximates fair value as maturities are less than three months. When quoted prices are available in an active market, cash equivalents are classified in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Fair values of cash equivalent instruments that do not trade on a regular basis in active markets are classified as Level 2.
Marketable Securities and Other Non-Current Assets
Quoted prices for identical assets in active markets are considered Level 1 and consist of on-the-run U.S. Treasuries and money market funds. The fair values of the Company’s Level 2 debt securities are obtained from quoted market prices of debt securities with similar characteristics, quoted prices from identical assets in inactive markets, or discounted cash flows to estimate fair value.

8. Non-Cash Share-Based Compensation
Non-Cash Share-based Compensation Expense
The Company measures non-cash share-based compensation at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and recognizes non-cash shared-based compensation as expense over the requisite service period of the award (generally three years) using the straight-line method. Non-cash share-based compensation expense, consisting of expense for share options, restricted share units ("RSUs"), performance share options, and the Employee Share Purchase Plan ("ESPP"), was classified in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss as follows:

General and administrative expenses
13,586 1,524 
Total non-cash share-based compensation expense$34,877 $3,765 
Share Options
All share option grants are awarded at fair value on the date of grant. The fair value of share options is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Stock options generally expire 10 years after the grant date.
The aggregate intrinsic value of share options is calculated as the difference between the exercise price of the share options and the fair value of the Company's common shares for those share options that had exercise prices lower than the fair value of the Company's common shares at March 31, 2024.
As of March 31, 2024, total unrecognized compensation cost related to the unvested share options was $98,017, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.47 years, which does not consider the impact of a change in control. The weighted average grant date fair value per share of share options granted under the Company's share option plan during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 was $30.82 and $11.23, respectively. The Company expects approximately 8,311,185 of the unvested stock options to vest over the requisite service period.

Restricted Share Units
The Company’s RSUs are considered nonvested share awards and require no payment from the employee. For each RSU, employees receive one common share at the end of the vesting period. The employee can elect to receive the one common share net of taxes or pay for taxes separately and receive the entire share. Compensation cost is recorded based on the market price of the Company’s common shares on the grant date and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period.
As of March 31, 2024, there was $10,174 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to Company RSUs that are expected to vest. These costs are expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.77 years, which does not consider the impact of a change in control. The total fair value of RSUs vested during the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $3,693.

The Company's potential dilutive securities include share options which have been excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share as the effect would be to reduce the net loss per share. Therefore, the weighted average number of common shares outstanding used to calculate both basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to common shareholders of the Company is the same. The Company excluded the following potential common shares, presented based on amounts outstanding at each period end, from the computation of diluted net loss per share attributable to

Acquisitions
Kv7 Platform Acquisition
In April 2022, the Company closed the acquisition from Knopp Biosciences LLC (“Knopp”) of Channel Biosciences, LLC (“Channel”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Knopp owning the assets of Knopp’s Kv7 channel targeting platform (the “Kv7 Platform Acquisition”), pursuant to a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated February 24, 2022.
As of March 31, 2024, under the Purchase Agreement, the Company had remaining success-based payments comprised of (i) up to $300,000 based on developmental and regulatory milestones through approvals in the United States, EMEA and Japan for the lead asset, BHV-7000 (formerly known as KB-3061), (ii) up to $250,000 based on developmental and regulatory milestones for the Kv7 pipeline development in other indications and additional country approvals, and (iii) up to $562,500 for commercial sales-based milestones of BHV-7000. Additionally, the Company has agreed to make scaled royalty payments in cash for BHV-7000 and the pipeline programs, with percentages starting at high single digits and peaking at low teens for BHV-7000 and starting at mid-single digits and peaking at low tens digits for the pipeline programs.
The Company has not recorded any of the remaining contingent consideration payments to Knopp as a liability in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as none of the future events which would trigger a milestone payment were considered probable of occurring at March 31, 2024.
On May 3, 2024, the Company entered into an amendment to the Purchase Agreement (the “Amendment”) under which the parties thereto agreed to replace the scaled high single digit to low teens royalty payment obligations with a flat royalty payment in the mid-single digits for BHV-7000 and the pipeline programs. The parties also agreed to reduce the success-based payments payable under the Purchase Agreement by removing all developmental and commercial sales-based milestones and reducing the regulatory milestones to up to $210,000 based on regulatory approvals in the United States and EMEA for BHV-7000 ($25,000 of which has already been paid) and up to an additional $60,000 based on regulatory approval in the United States for the other Kv7 pipeline programs. The Company retains the ability to pay these contingent milestone payments in cash or in Biohaven Shares at Biohaven's election, subject to the same increases if the Company elects to pay in Biohaven Shares.
In consideration of the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations, the Company agreed to issue to Knopp 1,872,874 Biohaven Shares, valued at approximately $75,000, through a private placement within 60 days of the date of execution of the Amendment (the “2024 Additional Consideration”) and additional Biohaven Shares with an approximate value of $75,000 within 60 days of the first anniversary of execution of the Amendment (the “2025 Additional Consideration”). The Company has also given Knopp the option to request a one-time cash true-up payment from the Company in December 2024 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2024 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, and a one-time cash true-up payment from the Company in December 2025 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2025 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, in each case, subject to certain conditions.
As further consideration for the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations in the Amendment, the Company issued to Knopp a warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase 294,195 Biohaven Shares at a purchase price per share of $67.98, subject to certain specified development milestones and the Company achieving a specified market capitalization.

acquisition, Biohaven made an upfront payment of 255,794 common shares of the Company, valued at approximately $10,894.
The Company accounted for this purchase as an asset acquisition as substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired was concentrated in a single identifiable asset, IPR&D. The IPR&D asset has no alternative future use and relates primarily to BHV-1510. There was no material value assigned to any other assets or liabilities acquired in the acquisition. As such, the upfront payment discussed above was recorded as a charge to research and development ("R&D") expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations during the three months ended March 31, 2024.
As of March 31, 2024, under the Pyramid Agreement, the Company has remaining success-based payments comprised of (i) up to $5,000 based on developmental and regulatory milestones for the lead asset, BHV-1510 (formerly known as PBI-410), (ii) up to an additional $30,000 based on developmental and regulatory milestones for a second asset (formerly known as PBI-200) and (iii) up to $40,000 for commercial sales-based milestones of BHV-1510. Contingent developmental and regulatory milestone payments may be paid in cash or Biohaven common shares at the election of Biohaven and commercial sales-based milestones are to be made in cash.
The Company has not recorded any of the remaining contingent consideration payments as a liability in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as none of the future events which would trigger a milestone payment were considered probable of occurring at March 31, 2024.
During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company recorded $5,689 of R&D expense in the condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss for a developmental milestone which became due under the Pyramid Agreement, to be paid in 98,129 common shares of the Company.

$569 $939 
Effective income tax rate0.3 %1.4 %
The decrease in income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023 was primarily attributable to the Company adopting the guidance contained in a Notice of Proposed Rule Making issued during the third quarter of 2023 by the United States Internal Revenue Service ("the Notice"). The Notice provides clarity regarding the Company’s ability to immediately deduct certain R&D expenditures which were incurred in the US and reimbursed by the Company’s foreign parent. Previously these expenditures were capitalized, as was generally required under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2022.

Clinical-Stage Milestones
Our clinical-stage milestones include the following:
Q1 Milestone graphic.jpg

Glutamate Modulation Platform
The most advanced product candidate from our glutamate receptor antagonist platform is troriluzole (previously referred to as trigriluzole and BHV-4157), which is currently in two Phase 3 trials in OCD and, for which we submitted a new drug application (“NDA”) in Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 3 (“SCA3”) to the U.S. FDA and marketing authorisation application ("MAA") to the European Medicines Agency ("EMA"). Troriluzole is also being evaluated by the Global Coalition for Adaptive Research ("GCAR") as part of Glioblastoma Adaptive Global Innovative Learning Environment - NCT03970447 ("GBM AGILE"), a revolutionary patient-centered, adaptive platform trial for registration that tests multiple therapies for patients with newly-diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma ("GBM"). Other product candidates include BHV-5500, which is an antagonist of the glutamate N-methyl-D-aspartate (“NMDA”) receptor and its oral prodrug BHV-5000.
Troriluzole
Spinocerebellar Ataxia
SCAs are a group of ultra-rare, dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorders predominantly characterized by atrophy of the cerebellum, brainstem, and spinal cord. The disease course of SCA is one of relentless progression over years and inevitably leads to clinical deterioration of motor function, gait imbalance with frequent falling, severe speech impairment, swallowing difficulties, and premature death. SCAs are thought to be pathogenetically related but disease course and brain region involvement are known to vary between the different genotypes. SCA3, also known as
Machado-Joseph disease, is the most common genotype, with a prevalence of up to 6,000 patients in North America and up to 4,600 in the European Union (“EU”) and Japan, and accounts for approximately 30% to 50% of SCAs worldwide. Currently, there are no approved symptomatic or neuroprotective treatments for SCA.
In May 2022, the Company announced top-line results from the Phase 3 clinical trial (Study BHV4157-206) evaluating the efficacy and safety of its investigational therapy, troriluzole, in patients with SCA. The primary endpoint, change from baseline to week 48 on the f-SARA, did not reach statistical significance in the overall SCA population as there was less than expected disease progression in the placebo arm over the course of the study. Preliminary post hoc analysis of efficacy measures by genotype suggested a treatment effect in patients with the SCA3 genotype. A risk reduction in falls was also observed in the SCA3 population, as well as across all SCA genotypes. Troriluzole was well tolerated with an adverse event profile similar to placebo.
Based on the findings of further analyses performed and the debilitating nature of SCA, in May 2023 we announced that we submitted a New Drug Application ("NDA") to the FDA for troriluzole for the treatment of SCA3. In July 2023, the FDA informed us that it would not review the recently submitted NDA application for troriluzole given that the study's primary endpoint was not met and thus, would not permit a substantive review. In followup to the regulatory decision on the NDA application, we held followup meetings with the FDA regarding the SCA data.
22

We continue to have constructive dialogue with the FDA regarding our SCA development program and potential future data analyses to address regulatory concerns in the previously issued refuse-to-file decision on it's NDA application for SCA3. We will provide further updates on the SCA development program as warranted by any continued positive progress from the outcome of future regulatory interactions on this topic.
In October, 2023, the European Medicines Agency ("EMA") informed us that our Marketing Authorization Application ("MAA") for troriluzole (Dazluma) in the treatment of SCA has been validated and is now under review by EMA's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use ("CHMP").
We remain committed to working closely with the health authorities to bring troriluzole to people with SCA3, given no therapy is currently approved for this ultra-rare genetic disorder.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
We commenced a Phase 2/3 double-blind, randomized, controlled trial to assess the efficacy of troriluzole in adults with OCD in December 2017. The Phase 2/3 study results were announced in June 2020. Troriluzole 200 mg administered once daily as adjunctive therapy in OCD patients with inadequate response to standard of care treatment showed consistent numerical improvement over placebo on the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) at all study timepoints (weeks 4 to 12) but did not meet the primary outcome measure at week 12. Troriluzole treated subjects (n = 111) had a mean Y-BOCS improvement of -3.4 points from baseline versus -2.9 for placebo-treated (n = 115) subjects [difference -0.5 and p-value = 0.451] at week 4, -5.1 points (n = 96) versus -3.6 for placebo-treated (n = 108) subjects [difference -1.5 and p-value = 0.041] at week 8, and -5.9 points (n = 99) versus -4.9 for placebo-treated (n = 102) subjects [difference -1.0 and p-value = 0.220] at week 12. Troriluzole’s safety profile was generally consistent with past clinical trial experience with its active metabolite, riluzole. Treatment emergent adverse events (“TEAE”s) were mostly reported to be mild in intensity. TEAEs that occurred in at least 5% of patients in the troriluzole group, and more frequently in the troriluzole group than in the placebo group, were headache, dizziness, fatigue, somnolence, nausea and nasopharyngitis.
Given the strong signal in the Phase 2/3 proof of concept study and after receiving feedback from the FDA in an End of Phase 2 meeting, in December 2020 we initiated enrollment in a Phase 3 program. The Phase 3 program will have an estimated total enrollment of up to 700 participants in each trial with a primary endpoint of change from baseline on the Y-BOCS total score at week 4, 8 and 10. The two Phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials that make-up our Phase 3 program for OCD are currently ongoing.
In January 2024, we announced plans to conduct a pre-planned interim analysis ("IA") to evaluate efficacy in the first of our two Phase 3 studies in OCD. The IA was planned to be conducted by an independent Data Monitoring Committee after approximately 70% of subjects in the primary analysis population reached the primary endpoint. The Data Monitoring Committee convened in the second quarter of 2024 to review the IA and informed the Company that the study may continue. As such, we continue enrolling patients in the first Phase 3 study in OCD and expect that this study will be fully enrolled in the first quarter of 2025.
There is a similarly designed pre-planned IA for the second Phase 3 study in OCD, with topline results from this IA anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2024.
Glioblastoma
In December 2021, GCAR selected troriluzole for evaluation in GBM AGILE. GBM AGILE is a revolutionary patient-centered, adaptive platform trial for registration that tests multiple therapies for patients with newly-diagnosed and recurrent GBM, the most fatal form of brain cancer. Troriluzole will be evaluated in all patient subgroups of the trial which include newly-diagnosed methylated MGMT, newly-diagnosed unmethylated MGMT, and recurrent GBM. Troriluzole was selected for inclusion in GBM AGILE based on compelling evidence showing deregulation of glutamate in GBM. The therapeutic potential of troriluzole in GBM and other oncology indications is supported by several recent clinical and translational research studies conducted with troriluzole and its active moiety.
In July 2022, the Company and GCAR announced that enrollment has commenced in GBM AGILE for the evaluation of troriluzole. Enrollment in the study is ongoing.
Myostatin Platform
Taldefgrobep Alfa (BHV-2000)
In February 2022, we announced a worldwide license agreement with BMS for the development and commercialization rights to taldefgrobep alfa (also known as BMS-986089 and now referred to as BHV-2000), a novel, Phase 3-ready anti-myostatin adnectin. Myostatin is a natural protein that limits skeletal muscle growth, an important process in healthy muscular development that can lead to improvements of lean mass and loss of adipose tissue. In patients with neuromuscular diseases, active myostatin can critically limit the growth needed to achieve developmental and functional milestones. Myostatin inhibition is a promising therapeutic strategy for enhancing muscle mass and strength in a range of pediatric and adult neuromuscular conditions. In addition, preclinical and early clinical data suggest that blocking myostatin and downstream signaling through its receptors on skeletal muscle may produce physical and metabolic changes that are important to individuals living with overweight and obesity, including reducing body fat and improving
23

insulin sensitivity while increasing lean muscle mass. Taldefgrobep’s novel mode of action and unique impact on body composition suggest it could be used as monotherapy or in combination with other anti-obesity medications.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy
In July 2022, we commenced enrollment in a Phase 3 clinical trial of BHV-2000 assessing the efficacy and safety of taldefgrobep alfa in Spinal Muscular Atrophy ("SMA"). SMA is a rare, progressively debilitating motor neuron disease in which development and growth of muscle mass are compromised, resulting in progressive weakness and muscle atrophy, reduced motor function, impaired quality of life and often death. The Phase 3 placebo-controlled, double-blind trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of taldefgrobep as an adjunctive therapy for participants who are already taking a stable dose of nusinersen or risdiplam or have a history of treatment with onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi (Zolgensma), compared to placebo. The study is neither restricted nor limited to patients based on ambulatory status or classification of SMA and is designed to randomize approximately 180 patients in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled global trial. We expect to report topline data from our Phase 3 study in the second half of 2024.
In February 2023, we received Fast Track designation from the FDA for taldefgrobep alfa for the treatment of SMA. In December 2022, we received orphan drug designation from the FDA for taldefgrobep in the treatment of SMA. In July 2023, we received orphan drug designation from the European Commission for taldefgrobep alfa in the treatment of SMA.
In April 2024, we announced that the FDA granted "rare pediatric disease" designation for taldefgrobep alfa. The designation provides for the potential for taldefgrobep to receive a priority review voucher (“PRV”) if ultimately approved for the indication of SMA.
Metabolic Disorders
Obesity is a disease of excess and/or abnormal deposits of adipose tissue and a current global public health crisis. By 2030, it is expected that nearly one billion people will be living with obesity, including 50% of the adult and 25% of the adolescent US population. The primary driver of obesity-related morbidity and mortality is metabolically active visceral adipose tissue and associated deposits of adipose tissue in and around organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and muscle.
Preclinical and clinical data have demonstrated the potential for anti-myostatin therapies to produce physical and metabolic changes that are highly relevant to individuals living with overweight and obesity, including reducing total body fat and visceral adiposity, and improving insulin sensitivity and bone mineral density, while increasing lean muscle mass.
In October 2023, we announced preclinical data demonstrating the ability of BHV-2000 to significantly reduce fat mass while increasing lean mass in an obese mouse model. In a mouse model of diet-induced obesity, untreated mice exhibited an increase in fat mass of 31%, while the mice treated with BHV-2000 demonstrated increases in lean mass of 25% from baseline (p≤.0.001) and lost 11% of their baseline fat (p≤.0.001) compared to vehicle (placebo) treated mice. Insulin and leptin levels were consistently lower in mice treated with BHV-2000 compared to the untreated mice. There was no difference in food intake over time across the BHV-2000 and untreated mice, counter to what has been observed with incretin mimetics (e.g., semaglutide) which are consistently associated with a reduction in energy intake.
We plan to initiate a Phase 2 clinical trial of taldefgrobep in the management of metabolic disease in the second half of 2024. The study will evaluate the ability of taldefgrobep to maintain lean mass muscle as an adjunctive to standard of care GLP-1 therapy in adults living with overweight and obesity (see figure below for anticipated trial design).

Ion Channel Platform
Kv7
BHV-7000
In April 2022, we closed the acquisition from Knopp Biosciences LLC (“Knopp”) of Channel Biosciences, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Knopp owning the assets of Knopp’s Kv7 channel targeting platform, pursuant to a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, dated February 24, 2022 (the "Purchase Agreement"). The acquisition of the Kv7 channel targeting platform added the latest advances in ion-channel modulation to our growing neuroscience portfolio. BHV-7000 (formerly known as KB-3061), the lead asset from the Kv7 platform is an activator of Kv7.2/Kv7.3, a key ion channel involved in neuronal signaling and in regulating the hyperexcitable state in epilepsy.
In the second quarter of 2022, our Clinical Trial Application for BHV-7000 was approved by Health Canada, and we subsequently began Phase 1 clinical development. First-in-human single ascending dose ("SAD") and multiple ascending dose ("MAD") studies have now been completed. BHV-7000 was well-tolerated at all dose levels in both studies with no SAEs and no dose-limiting toxicities.
24

In 2023, we initiated a Phase 1 open-label electroencephalogram ("EEG") study designed to evaluate the effects of BHV-7000 on changes from baseline in EEG spectral power after administration of single doses of BHV-7000 (10, 25, or 50 mg) to healthy adult volunteers. BHV-7000 was well-tolerated at all doses studied and EEG data showed dose-dependent increases in brain spectral power, with minimal power increase in the delta frequency band and the highest spectral power increases in the alpha, beta, and gamma frequency bands. The minimal impact of BHV-7000 on slower frequencies (i.e., delta) is consistent with the low incidence of central nervous system ("CNS") adverse events, in particular somnolence, seen in the BHV-7000 Phase 1 SAD/MAD studies, and the study results confirm the CNS activity of BHV-7000 at projected therapeutic concentrations.
Based on the results from the EEG study and the safety profile in SAD/MAD trials, along with PK data from a new once-daily extended-release (“ER”) formulation, Biohaven plans on exploring three oral dose levels of once-daily BHV-7000 (25 mg, 50 mg, and 75 mg) in the Phase 2/3 clinical trials in epilepsy and mood disorders. This dosing approach with a Kv7 activator will allow for assessment of distinct target concentrations over a wide range, above and below EC50 drug concentrations efficacious in nonclinical models, not previously feasible with drugs in this class.
Epilepsy
Epilepsy is the initial disease we are targeting with activators from our Kv7 platform. Epilepsy affects approximately 3.5 million Americans, or more than 1.2% of adults and 0.6% of children in the U.S., and more than 50 million patients worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (“WHO”). It is the fourth most common neurological disorder, and many patients struggle to achieve freedom from seizures, with more than one third of patients requiring two or more medications to manage their epilepsy. While the use of anti-seizure medications is often accompanied by dose-limiting side effects, our clinical candidate BHV-7000 is specifically designed to target subtypes of Kv7 potassium channels without engagement of GABAA receptors. The lack of GABAA-R activity potentially gives BHV-7000 a wide therapeutic window which we expect to result in an improved side effect profile, limiting the somnolence and fatigue often seen in patients receiving anti-seizure medications. By adding BHV-7000 to our pipeline, we aim to bring this potassium channel modulator as a potential solution to patients with epilepsy who remain uncontrolled on their current regimens.
In January 2024, we completed our End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA to advance to Phase 3 trials and announced that more than 110 global clinical sites have been selected in the first of two focal epilepsy trials. Enrollment in our Phase 2/3 program commenced in the first quarter of 2024. The two pivotal studies evaluating the efficacy of BHV-7000 in refractory focal epilepsy are
planned as randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 8- and 12-week trials with a primary endpoint of change from baseline in 28-day average seizure frequency in adults with focal epilepsy. One of the focal epilepsy studies will evaluate 25 mg and 50 mg doses of BHV-7000 and the second study will evaluate 50 mg and 75 mg doses of BHV-7000 (see figure below).
focaltrialdesign.jpg
In addition to the focal epilepsy program, we initiated a Phase 2/3 study of BHV-7000 in idiopathic generalized epilepsy ("IGE") in the second quarter of 2024. The pivotal study evaluating the efficacy of BHV-7000 with IGE is planned as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled 24-week time-to-event trial with a primary endpoint of time to second generalized seizure in adults and adolescents with IGE (see figure below).
generalizeddesign.jpg
Mood Disorders
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the US are living with neuropsychiatric illnesses that are, in turn, associated with inadequate treatment, poor quality of life, disability, and considerable direct and indirect costs. There is significant unmet need for novel and effective therapeutic options that are not limited by long latency periods to clinical effects, low response rates, and significant risks and side effects. Increasing evidence from animal models and clinical trials now suggests that Kv7.2/7.3 targeting drugs offer the potential to treat a spectrum of these neuropsychiatric diseases including, but not limited to, mood disorders,
25

such as major depressive disorder ("MDD"), bipolar disorder and anxiety.
Major Depressive Disorder
We initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial with BHV-7000 for the treatment of MDD in the second quarter of 2024. We anticipate the study will be a 6 week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in approximately 300 subjects, with a primary endpoint of measurement on the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale ("MADRS").
Bipolar disorder
We also initiated a Phase 2/3 clinical trial with BHV-7000 for the treatment of bipolar disorder in the second quarter of 2024. We expect the study to be a 3 week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in approximately 256 subjects, with a primary endpoint of measurement on the Young Mania Rating Scale ("YMRS").
KCNQ2 Developmental Epileptic Encephalopathy
We are currently exploring BHV-7000 as a potential treatment for KCNQ2 developmental epileptic encephalopathy ("KCNQ2-DEE"), a rare pediatric epileptic encephalopathy first described in 2012 resulting from dominant-negative mutations in the KCNQ2 gene. BHV-7000 has been granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation by the United States Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) for the treatment of KCNQ2-DEE.
Neuropathic Pain
We are currently evaluating the activity of BHV-7000 and other compounds from our proprietary series of selective Kv7.2/7.3 activators in multiple preclinical models of neuropathic pain.
Migraine
We are currently exploring BHV-7000 as a potential treatment for migraine. Kv7.2/7.3 openers have shown significant activity in cortical spreading depression models of migraine.
TRPM3 Ion Channel Antagonists
In January 2022, we entered into an Exclusive License and Research Collaboration Agreement with Katholieke Universiteit Leuven ("KU Leuven") to develop and commercialize TRPM3 antagonists to address the growing proportion of people worldwide living with chronic pain disorders (the "KU Leuven Agreement"). The TRPM3 antagonist platform was discovered at the Centre for Drug Design and Discovery and the Laboratory of Ion Channel Research at KU Leuven. Under the KU Leuven Agreement, we receive exclusive global rights to develop, manufacture and commercialize KU Leuven's portfolio of small-molecule TRPM3 antagonists. The portfolio includes the lead candidate, henceforth known as BHV-2100.
BHV-2100
BHV-2100 is an orally-bioavailable small molecule antagonist of TRPM3. TRPM3 is expressed in the relevant human tissue types for neuropathic pain, and both preclinical models and human genetics implicate TRPM3 in pain signaling. We have an ongoing Phase 1 study of BHV-2100. The Phase 1 study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, SAD/MAD study in healthy subjects to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of BHV-2100. Single ascending dose and multiple ascending dose cohorts are ongoing (including subjects randomized to placebo) with ascending dose levels. Each SAD dose cohort will be initiated with sentinel dosing. Dose levels for subsequent cohorts are determined based on available PK, PD, safety and tolerability from previous cohort(s). Up to approximately 88 subjects are planned to be evaluated.
Migraine
We expect to initiate a BHV-2100 Phase 2 study in acute migraine in the second half of 2024. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized clinical trial design, including trial size, and primary and secondary endpoints for the anticipated clinical trial.
Neuropathic Pain
BHV-2100 is also being developed as a potential non-opioid treatment for neuropathic pain. We are evaluating the ability of BHV-2100 to reduce pain behaviors across several preclinical models of neuropathic pain, including chemotherapy induced neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, and nerve injury. The Company expects to conduct a proof of concept study for neuropathic pain in the second half of 2024.
Additional research on TRPM3-mediated disorders
Under the KU Leuven Agreement, Biohaven is supporting further basic and translational research at KU Leuven on the role of TRPM3 in pain and other disorders. In addition to BHV-2100, we are optimizing other lead compounds for TRPM3-mediated disorders of the peripheral and central nervous systems.
Inflammation and Immunology Platform
TYK2/JAK1
Agreement with Hangzhou Highlightll Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.
In March 2023, we entered into an exclusive, worldwide (excluding People’s Republic of China and its territories and possessions) license agreement with Hangzhou Highlightll Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. ("Highlightll"), pursuant to which we obtained the right to research, develop, manufacture and commercialize Highlightll’s brain penetrant dual TYK2/JAK1 inhibitor program (the "Highlightll Agreement").
26

BHV-8000
Dysregulation of the immune system has been implicated in several neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory disorders including Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and autoimmune encephalitis. Over-active immune cells and microglia driving chronic neuroinflammation result in release of cytokines with activation of leukocytes and is thought to contribute to neuronal injury, death, gliosis, and demyelination. The TYK2 and JAK1 signal transduction pathways mediate highly complementary immune and inflammatory signaling events. Targeted, small-molecule therapies that inhibit TYK2 or JAK kinases have separately demonstrated robust efficacy in autoimmune, dermatologic and gastrointestinal disorders. TYK2 is a validated immune target as evidenced by a recent peripheral program that gained FDA approval, and there are multiple additional peripheral non-CNS programs in clinical development. Brain penetrant inhibitors of TYK2/JAK1 have the potential to bring this validated immune target to brain disorders.
There are currently no brain penetrant, selective, dual TYK2/JAK1 inhibitors approved for brain disorders. In May 2023, we began dosing with BHV-8000 (previously TLL-041), in a Phase 1 study in normal healthy volunteers. The planned Phase 1 study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, sequential parallel group, SAD/MAD study in healthy subjects to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics ("PD") of BHV-8000 following oral administration. In this study, SAD and MAD cohorts are completed and ongoing (including subjects randomized to placebo) with up to 6 dose levels. Each SAD dose cohort will be initiated with sentinel dosing, e.g., one active and placebo patient will be dosed simultaneously. Doses for subsequent cohorts are determined based on available PK, PD, safety and tolerability from previous cohort(s). Up to 40 subjects are planned to be evaluated with approximately 30 subjects randomized to receive active drug and approximately 10 subjects randomized to receive placebo in a double-blind fashion. In July 2023, we reported that we had successfully dosed three dose cohorts with single ascending doses of BHV-8000 in the ongoing Phase 1 study. Based on the preliminary data that are available, BHV-8000 achieved projected therapeutic concentrations and was well tolerated with only mild adverse events reported.
We anticipate beginning Phase 2 clinical trials with BHV-8000 in the second half of 2024 targeting neuroinflammatory conditions, potentially including Amyloid-Related Imaging Abnormalities ("ARIA") in Alzheimer’s disease, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized clinical trial designs, including trial size, and primary and secondary endpoints for these anticipated clinical trials.
MoDE Degraders
Bispecific Molecular Degraders of Extracellular Proteins
Molecular Degraders of Extracellular Proteins (“MoDEs”) are bispecific molecules that target pathologic circulating proteins and direct them to the liver (or other organ systems) for degradation by the endosomal/lysosomal pathway. Our MoDE platform is being explored for use in a wide range of therapeutic areas, including indications in immune-mediated diseases, cancer and other diseases. We are planning for MoDEs to be administered as intravenous or subcutaneous formulations. We expect to initiate a total of 4 Investigational New Drug Applications or the foreign equivalent ("IND") for the degrader program in 2024.
BHV-1400
BHV-1400 is a MoDE which is being developed to target Gd-IgA for the treatment of IgA Nephropathy. Specific removal of pathogenic Gd-IgA and associated circulating immune complexes with preservation of normal IgA potentially permits disease remission without incurring an infection risk. We shared preliminary data demonstrating the chimeric antibody-ASGPR ligand conjugate specifically mediated endocytosis of Gd-IgA1, as opposed to normal IgA1 and IgA2, in an endocytosis assay with ASGPR-expressing cell lines, and that MoDE degraders successfully internalize and degrade these immune-complexes. We expect to initiate Phase 1 studies of BHV-1400 in the second half of 2024. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized potential clinical trial designs, including size and primary and secondary endpoints.
BHV-1300
BHV-1300 is an IgG1, IgG2 and IgG4 bispecific degrader which we are initially developing for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis ("RA"). RA is a chronic autoimmune disease estimated to affect 1 to 2% of the global population. RA primarily affects the joints, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function.
We evaluated the effect of single and multiple doses of BHV-1300 in cynomolgus monkeys. In September 2023, we reported data from confirmatory studies that showed a 75-80% reduction of IgG levels
27

two days after a single dose and over 90% of IgG lowering after three doses.
1300repeateddosing.jpg
Maximal lowering across FcRn inhibitors is 60-80% within approximately 7 to 21 days after initiation of single or multiple doses, respectively, in cynomolgus. In contrast, a single dose of BHV-1300 lowers IgG by approximately 75 to 80% after approximately 2 days, and after three rapid doses to greater than 90% lowering. The length of significant exposure to BHV-1300 is approximately one day within the dosage interval compared to continuous exposure required of the FcRn inhibitors. Mechanism related liabilities of FcRn inhibitors seen in animals and man, including hypoalbuminemia and hypercholesterolemia, are not expected and do not occur with BHV-1300 in cynomolgus. See figures below comparing the speed and depth of lowering to FcRn inhibitors.
1300 comparison.jpg
In January 2024, we reported preclinical pharmacodynamic single dose data with BHV-1300 which demonstrated the Biohaven IgG degrader technology allows for co-administration with Fc-containing biologics. The PK of Humira® was unaltered
28

after being dosed 12 hours after BHV-1300 administration (see figure below).

The Phase 1 SAD study examining BHV-1300 in healthy subjects was initiated in the first quarter of 2024. The FDA indicated that the MAD assessment of BHV-1300 should be performed in a relevant patient population. Upon completion of the SAD study, we are planning the MAD portion of the study in a relevant patient population with the possibility of benefit from BHV-1300. The Phase 1 study is a randomized, open-label, placebo-controlled, SAD study in healthy subjects to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of BHV-1300. Each dose cohort will be initiated with sentinel dosing. Dose levels for subsequent cohorts will be determined based on available PK, PD, safety and tolerability from previous cohort(s).
A preliminary summary update regarding the Company’s ongoing Phase 1 SAD study with BHV-1300 was released on April 15, 2024. An additional summary update from the ongoing BHV-1300 SAD study is planned for May 29, 2024, and will include preliminary safety and pharmacodynamic information from at least 3 low dose cohorts that have completed by that time. A total of approximately 6-8 dose cohorts are expected to be completed with a broader range of topline safety, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data from the SAD expected in the the second half of 2024.
In the April 2024 update, we provided preliminary safety and IgG lowering data from our ongoing single
ascending dose study of BHV-1300. In the study, 16 subjects completed two dosing cohorts to date, with 1 sentinel subject treated with BHV-1300 in each cohort prior to dosing other subjects. Given BHV-1300’s novel mechanism of action, robust data collection with Safety Review Committee meeting to review at least two weeks of follow-up data for each cohort before next dose group; review includes cumulative safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic assessment. All cohorts have proceeded as initially planned without any cohort expansion or interruption.
To date, BHV-1300 has been safe and well-tolerated with no SAEs or moderate or severe adverse events AEs observed. Only mild AEs have been observed, which have been judged not to be related to BHV-1300 with most resolving spontaneously. No clinically significant laboratory abnormalities (including liver function tests ("LFTs") and albumin) or ECG changes have been observed to date. Preliminary IgG lowering data is consistent with modeling based on non-clinical experience, with dose- and time-dependent IgG lowering observed even in initial low dose cohorts. Reductions were greater for IgG1, IgG2 and IgG4 subclasses compared to IgG3; BHV-1300 was designed to spare IgG3.
Our MAD studies of BHV-1300 are anticipated to initiate in the second half 2024. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized potential clinical trial designs, including size and primary and secondary endpoints.
BHV-1310
BHV-1310 is a next generation bispecific IgG degrader with the same specificity as BHV-1300 for IgG1, IgG2 and IgG4 which is initially being developed for the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis ("gMG") and potentially other acute conditions or conditions with acute exacerbations or flares. MG is a chronic autoimmune disorder of the musculoskeletal system that is estimated to affect approximately 36,000 to 60,000 people in the United States. Patients with gMG develop antibodies that attack critical signaling receptor proteins at the junction between nerve and muscle cells, inhibiting communication between nerves and muscle and resulting in weakness of the skeletal muscles. GMG affects the voluntary muscles of the body, especially those that control the eyes, mouth, throat and limbs.
29

In January 2024, we demonstrated optimization of degrader technology with BHV-1310 which allows for deeper reductions in IgG after single dose (see figure below). The deep and rapid reductions observed suggest that BHV-1310 could have potential application in acute settings. We expect to initiate Phase 1 studies of BHV-1310 in the second half of 2024. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized potential clinical trial designs, including size and primary and secondary endpoints.

BHV-1600
BHV-1600 is a selective MoDE designed to remove circulating agonistic antibodies of all isotypes and subclasses directed against myocardial beta-1 adrenergic receptor ("β-1 AR") through hepatic ASGPR binding and hepatocellular degradation. This molecule was created using a peptide that mimics the antigenic epitope common to most patients with autoantibodies directed to β-1 AR. This peptide mimics the native sequence such that circulating antibodies are efficiently trapped and subsequently removed by hepatic endocytosis through the ASGPR receptor. As these agonistic antibodies will be markedly depleted, the rapid cessation of inappropriate agonism of the myocardial β-1 AR receptors should result in rapid reversal of symptoms, as precedented with plasmapheresis.
We are developing BHV-1600 for the treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition where the cardiac muscle contracts less effectively, the chambers of the heart are enlarged and thinning of cardiac walls results. This can lead to cardiac valvular incompetency, arrhythmias, thrombosis, and heart failure. We expect to initiate Phase 1 studies of BHV-1600 in the second half of 2024. We are evaluating and have not yet finalized potential clinical trial designs, including size and primary and secondary endpoints.
Oncology Platform
CD-38
BHV-1100
In the fourth quarter of 2021, we initiated a Phase 1a/1b trial in multiple myeloma patients using its antibody recruiting molecule BHV-1100 in combination with autologous cytokine induced memory-like natural
killer cells and immune globulin to target and kill multiple myeloma cells expressing the cell surface protein CD38. BHV-1100 is the lead clinical asset from Biohaven’s Antibody Recruiting Molecule ("ARM™") Platform developed from a strategic alliance with PeptiDream Inc. ("PeptiDream") (TYO: 4587). This open-label single center Phase 1a/1b study will assess the safety and tolerability as well as exploratory efficacy endpoints in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients who have tested positive for minimal residual disease (“MRD+”) in first or second remission prior to autologous stem cell transplant (“ASCT”). We plan to enroll 30 newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients. The primary outcome measures are dose limiting toxicities following combination product administration (time frame: 100 days post-combination product administration) and incidence and severity of side effects related to the combination product (time frame: 90 to 100 days post-combination product administration).
Antibody Drug Conjugates
BHV-1510
In January 2024, we acquired BHV-1510 through our acquisition of Pyramid Biosciences, Inc. ("Pyramid"). BHV-1510 is a next-generation Trophoblast Cell Surface Antigen 2 ("TROP-2") directed ADC employing an optimized next-generation construct with novel linker-payload and enzymatic, site-specific conjugation, targeting TROP2-expressing carcinomas. Carcinoma refers to a malignant neoplasm of epithelial origin. Carcinomas account for 80 to 90 percent of all cancer cases and several examples have been successfully treated with ADCs. Abundant TROP-2 expression has been described for many carcinoma subtypes.
In preclinical TROP-2 expressing tumor models, BHV-1510 has shown improved antitumor activity versus
30

other TROP-2 directed ADCs, in addition to improved plasma stability, more potent in vitro cytotoxicity, superior bystander effect, and greater immunogenic cell death with the novel TopoIx payload. Improved and differentiated safety has been seen in cynomolgus monkey GLP toxicology studies, suggesting a wife therapeutic index. BHV-1510 has similar favorable characteristics to our proprietary MATE conjugation technology, which should allow highly stable site-specific conjugation, resulting in a favorable PK, toxicity and manufacturability profile.
The IND for BHV-1510 was approved by the FDA in January 2024. The First-in Human trial evaluating BHV-1510 in patients with advanced solid tumors commenced in the second quarter of 2024. This trial consists of two parts; Phase 1 dose escalation and Phase 2 dose expansion, in patients with advanced incurable cancer that have progressed on or are intolerant to standard therapy. The primary objective of Phase 1 is safety, to identify a recommended dose for expansion ("RDE") or maximum tolerated dose. Phase 1 dose escalation will be implemented based on a Bayesian optimal interval design, with the lowest dose initiated as a single patient cohort. Patients are expected to be dosed in escalating cohorts, with dosing regimens administered intravenously every three weeks. The Phase 2 dose expansion part of the study will consist of non-randomized efficacy finding expansion cohorts, defined by specific tumor types that will be treated at the RDE to estimate the anti-tumor activity of BHV-1510. Up to approximately 170 subjects are planned to be evaluated.
BHV-1500
BHV-1500 is a next-generation CD30-directed ADC employing a Biohaven proprietary site-specific conjugation (MATE reagent), targeting CD30-expressing tumors such as Hodgkin's and other lymphoma and the MMAE payload. Hodgkin's disease and other CD30-expressing lymphoma are characterized by the uncontrolled growth of malignant lymphocytes or lymphoblasts. Adcetris has demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
In preclinical CD30 expressing murine tumor models, BHV-1500 has shown improved antitumor activity versus Adcetris (brentuximab vedotin), and substantially improved safety, plasma stability and pharmacokinetics in monkeys. We expect to submit an IND for BHV-1500 in 2025.
Recent Developments
Amendment to Knopp Purchase Agreement
On May 3, 2024, we entered into an amendment to the Purchase Agreement with Knopp (the “Amendment”). Under the Amendment, the parties thereto agreed to replace the scaled high single digit to low teens royalty payment obligations with a flat royalty payment in the mid-single digits for BHV-7000 and the pipeline programs. The parties also agreed to reduce
the success-based payments payable under the Purchase Agreement by removing all commercial sales-based milestones, which were up to $562.5 million, and reducing the developmental and regulatory milestones, which were up to $575 million, to up to $210 million based on regulatory approvals in the United States and EMEA for BHV-7000 ($25 million of which has already been paid) and up to an additional $60 million based on regulatory approval in the United States for the other Kv7 pipeline programs. We retain the ability to pay these contingent milestone payments in cash or in Biohaven Shares at our election, subject to the same increases if we elect to pay in Biohaven Shares.
In consideration of the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations, we agreed to issue to Knopp 1,872,874 Biohaven Shares, valued at approximately $75 million, through a private placement within 60 days of the date of execution of the Amendment (the “2024 Additional Consideration”) and additional Biohaven Shares with an approximate value of $75 million within 60 days of the first anniversary of execution of the Amendment (the “2025 Additional Consideration”). We have also given Knopp the option to request a one-time cash true-up payment from us in December 2024 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2024 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, and a one-time cash true-up payment from us in December 2025 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2025 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, in each case, subject to certain conditions.
As further consideration for the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations in the Amendment, we issued to Knopp a warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase 294,195 Biohaven Shares at a purchase price per share of $67.98, subject to certain specified development milestones and the Company achieving a specified market capitalization.
Components of Our Results of Operations
Revenue
To date, we have not generated any revenue from product sales and we do not expect to generate any revenue from the sale of products in the near future. If our development efforts for our product candidates are successful and result in regulatory approval or additional license agreements with third parties, then we may generate revenue in the future from product sales.
Operating Expenses
Research and Development Expenses
Research and development ("R&D") expenses consist primarily of costs incurred in connection with the development of our product candidates. We expense
31

research and development costs as incurred. These expenses include:
expenses incurred under agreements with contract research organizations ("CROs") or contract manufacturing organizations (“CMOs”), as well as investigative sites and consultants that conduct our clinical trials, preclinical studies and other scientific development services;
manufacturing scale-up expenses and the cost of acquiring and manufacturing preclinical and clinical trial materials and commercial materials, including manufacturing validation batches;
employee-related expenses, including salaries, benefits, travel and non-cash share-based compensation expense for employees engaged in research and development functions;
costs related to compliance with regulatory requirements;
development milestone payments incurred prior to regulatory approval of the product candidate;
rent and operating expenses incurred for leased lab facilities and equipment; and
payments made in cash, equity securities or other forms of consideration under third-party licensing or other agreements prior to regulatory approval of the product candidate.
We recognize external development costs based on an evaluation of the progress to completion of specific tasks using estimates from our clinical personnel and information provided to us by our service providers.
Our external direct research and development expenses are tracked on a program-by-program basis for our product candidates and consist primarily of external costs, such as fees paid to outside consultants, CROs, CMOs, and central laboratories in connection with our preclinical development, process development, manufacturing and clinical development activities. Our direct research and development expenses by program also include fees and certain development milestones incurred under license agreements. We do not allocate employee costs, or other indirect costs, to specific programs because these costs are deployed across multiple programs and, as such, are not separately classified. We use internal resources primarily to oversee the research and development as well as for managing our preclinical development, process development, manufacturing and clinical development activities.
Product candidates in later stages of clinical development generally have higher development costs than those in earlier stages of clinical development, primarily due to the increased size and duration of later-stage clinical trials. We expect that our research and development expenses will remain significant over the
next several years as we increase personnel costs, conduct late-stage clinical trials, and prepare regulatory filings for our product candidates. We also expect to incur additional expenses related to milestones payable to third parties with whom we have entered into license agreements to acquire the rights to our product candidates.
The successful development and commercialization of our product candidates is highly uncertain. At this time, we cannot reasonably estimate or know the nature, timing and costs of the efforts that will be necessary to complete the preclinical and clinical development of any of our product candidates or when, if ever, material net cash inflows may commence from any of our product candidates. This uncertainty is due to the numerous risks and uncertainties associated with product development and commercialization, including the uncertainty of:
the scope, progress, outcome and costs of our preclinical development activities, clinical trials and other research and development activities;
establishment of an appropriate safety profile with IND-enabling studies;
successful patient enrollment in, and the initiation and completion of, clinical trials;
the timing, receipt and terms of any marketing approvals from applicable regulatory authorities;
establishment of commercial manufacturing capabilities or making arrangements with third-party manufacturers;
development and timely delivery of commercial-grade drug formulations that can be used in our clinical trials and for commercial launch;
acquisition, maintenance, defense and enforcement of patent claims and other intellectual property rights;
significant and changing government regulation;
initiation of commercial sales of our product candidates, if and when approved, whether alone or in collaboration with others; and
maintenance of a continued acceptable safety profile of the product candidates following approval.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative ("G&A") expenses consist primarily of personnel costs, including salaries, benefits and travel expenses for our executive, finance, business, corporate development and other administrative functions; and non-cash share-based compensation expense. General and administrative expenses also include facilities and other related expenses, including rent, depreciation, maintenance of facilities, insurance and supplies; and for public relations, audit, tax and legal services, including legal
32

expenses to pursue patent protection of our intellectual property.
We anticipate that our general and administrative expenses, including payroll and related expenses, will remain significant in the future as we continue to support our research and development activities and prepare for potential commercialization of our product candidates, if successfully developed and approved. We also anticipate increased expenses associated with general operations, including costs related to accounting and legal services, director and officer insurance premiums, facilities and other corporate infrastructure, office-related costs, such as information technology costs, and certain costs to establish ourself as a standalone public company, as well as ongoing additional costs associated with operating as an independent, publicly traded company.
Other Income, Net
Other income, net primarily consists of net investment income. Net investment income is comprised of interest income and net accretion and amortization on investments in addition to realized gains and losses. Refer to Note 3, "Marketable Securities," for further our investments.
Provision for Income Taxes
The income tax expense in the condensed consolidated financial statements was calculated on a separate return method and presented as if the Company’s operations were separate taxpayers in the respective jurisdictions up to and including the Separation. Cash tax payments, income taxes receivable and deferred taxes, net of valuation allowance, are
reflective of our actual tax balances prior and subsequent to the Separation.
As a company incorporated in the BVI, we are principally subject to taxation in the BVI. Under the current laws of the BVI, the Company and all dividends, interest, rents, royalties, compensation and other amounts paid by the Company to persons who are not resident in the BVI and any capital gains realized with respect to any shares, debt obligations, or other securities of the Company by persons who are not resident in the BVI are exempt from all provisions of the Income Tax Ordinance in the BVI.
We have historically outsourced all of the research and clinical development for our programs under a master services agreement with Biohaven Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("BPI"). As a result of providing services under this agreement, BPI was profitable during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, and BPI is subject to taxation in the United States. As such, in each reporting period, the tax provision includes the effects of the results of operations of BPI.
At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, we continued to maintain a full valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets, comprised primarily of research and development tax credit carryforwards and net operating loss carryforwards, based on management’s assessment that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
Our income tax provisions primarily represent Federal and state taxes related to the profitable operations of our subsidiaries in the United States and Ireland.

R&D expenses, including non-cash share-based compensation costs, were $156.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $63.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The increase of $92.5 million was primarily due to increases in direct program spend for additional and advancing clinical trials, including late Phase 2/3 studies, and preclinical research programs in 2024, as compared to the same period in the prior year. The $19.6 million increase in expense for BHV-1510 was primarily due to the Pyramid Acquisition, which resulted in $10.9 million (non-cash) of expense recorded to R&D during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a $1.5 million milestone payment which became due during the first quarter of 2024, and a $5.7 million non-cash milestone payment which became due during the first quarter of 2024. See further discussion of the Pyramid Acquisition included in Note 10, "License, Acquisitions and Other Agreements" to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q.
Non-cash share-based compensation expense was $21.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $19.1 million as compared to the same period in 2023. Non-cash share-based compensation expense was higher in the first quarter of 2024 primarily due to our annual equity incentive awards granted in the fourth quarter of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses were $27.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024,
compared to $14.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The increase of $12.9 million was primarily due to increased non-cash share-based compensation expense. Non-cash share-based compensation expense was $13.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $12.1 million as compared to the same period in 2023. Non-cash share-based compensation expense was higher in the first quarter of 2024 primarily due to our annual equity incentive awards granted in the fourth quarter of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024.
Other Income, Net
Other income, net was a net income of $4.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $8.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease of $3.9 million in other income recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023 related to the Transition Services Agreement entered into with the Former Parent.
Provision for Income Taxes
We recorded an income tax provision of $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to a provision for income taxes of $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The decrease in income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to 2023 was primarily attributable to our adoption of the guidance contained in a Notice of Proposed Rule Making issued during the third quarter of 2023 by the United States Internal Revenue Service ("the
34

Notice"). See further discussion of the Notice in Note 12, "Income Taxes" to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Since our inception, we have not generated any revenue and have incurred significant operating losses and negative cash flows from operations. We will not generate revenue from product sales unless and until we successfully complete clinical development and obtain regulatory approval for our product candidates. We expect to continue to incur significant expenses for at least the next several years as we advance our product candidates from discovery through preclinical development and clinical trials and seek regulatory approval and pursue commercialization of any approved product candidate. In addition, if we obtain marketing approval for any of our product candidates, we expect to incur significant commercialization expenses related to product manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution. In addition, we may incur expenses in connection with the in-license or acquisition of additional product candidates
Historically, we have funded our operations primarily with the cash contribution received from the Former Parent at the Separation and proceeds from the public offerings of our common shares. We have incurred recurring losses since our inception and expect to continue to generate operating losses for the foreseeable future.
As of March 31, 2024, we had cash and cash equivalents of $182.7 million and marketable securities of $100.7 million. Cash in excess of immediate requirements is invested in marketable securities and money market funds with a view to liquidity and capital preservation. We continuously assess our working capital needs, capital expenditure requirements, and future investments or acquisitions.

Operating Activities
Net cash used in operating activities was $102.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and $77.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The $25.0 million increase in net cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was primarily driven by an increase in direct R&D program spend for additional and advancing clinical trials, including late Phase 2/3 studies, and preclinical research programs, as compared to the same period in the prior year.
Investing Activities
Net cash provided by investing activities was $34.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to net cash used by investing activities of $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The $35.1 million increase in net cash provided by investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was primarily driven by an increase in maturities of marketable securities partially offset by an increase in purchases of marketable securities with cash in excess of immediate requirements (see Note 3, "Marketable Securities," to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional details), as compared to the same period in the prior year.
Financing Activities
Net cash provided by financing activities was $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to $26.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The $23.2 million decrease in net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was primarily driven by a decrease in restricted cash held in connection with the execution of the United States Distribution Services Agreement which is legally payable to the Former
35

Parent (see Note 13, "Related Party Transactions," to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional details), as compared to the same period in the prior year.
April 2024 Public Offering
On April 22, 2023, we closed an underwritten public offering of 6,451,220 of its common shares, which included the exercise in full of the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares, at a price to the public of $41.00 per share. The net proceeds raised in the offering, after deducting underwriting discounts and expenses of the offering payable by us, were approximately $247.8 million. We intend to use the net proceeds received from the offering for general corporate purposes.
Equity Distribution Agreement
In October 2023, we entered into an equity distribution agreement pursuant to which we may offer and sell common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $150.0 million from time to time through or to the sales agent, acting as our agent or principal (the "Equity Distribution Agreement"). Sales of our common shares, if any, will be made in sales deemed to be “at-the-market offerings”. The sales agent is not required to sell any specific amount of securities but will act as our sales agent using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between the sales agent and us. We currently plan to use the net proceeds from any at-the-market offerings of our common shares for general corporate purposes.
As of March 31, 2024, we have issued and sold no common shares under the Equity Distribution Agreement.
Funding Requirements
We expect our expenses to increase in connection with our ongoing activities, particularly as we advance and expand preclinical activities, clinical trials and potential commercialization of our product candidates. Our costs will also increase as we:
continue to advance and expand the development of our discovery programs and clinical-stage assets;
continue to initiate and progress other supporting studies required for regulatory approval of our product candidates, including long-term safety studies, drug-drug interaction studies, preclinical toxicology and carcinogenicity studies;
initiate preclinical studies and clinical trials for any additional indications for our current product candidates and any future product candidates that we may pursue;
continue to build our portfolio of product candidates through the acquisition or in-license of additional product candidates or technologies;
continue to develop, maintain, expand and protect our intellectual property portfolio;
pursue regulatory approvals for our current and future product candidates that successfully complete clinical trials;
establish and support our sales, marketing and distribution infrastructure to commercialize any future product candidates for which we may obtain marketing approval; and
hire additional clinical, medical, commercial, and development personnel.
We expect that our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, will be sufficient to fund our current forecast for operating expenses, financial commitments and other cash requirements for more than one year. We expect we will need to raise additional capital until we are profitable. If no additional capital is raised through either public or private equity financings, debt financings, strategic relationships, alliances and licensing agreements, or a combination thereof, we may delay, limit or reduce discretionary spending in areas related to research and development activities and other general and administrative expenses in order to fund our operating costs and working capital needs.
We have based these estimates on assumptions that may prove to be wrong, and we could utilize our available capital resources sooner than we expect. We expect that we will require additional capital to pursue in-licenses or acquisitions of other product candidates. If we receive regulatory approval for our product candidates, we expect to incur commercialization expenses related to product manufacturing, sales, marketing and distribution, depending on where we choose to commercialize or whether we commercialize jointly or on our own.
Because of the numerous risks and uncertainties associated with research, development and commercialization of pharmaceutical product candidates, we are unable to estimate the exact amount of our working capital requirements. Our future funding requirements will depend on and could increase significantly as a result of many factors, including:
the scope, progress, results and costs of researching and developing our product candidates, and conducting preclinical studies and clinical trials;
the costs, timing and outcome of regulatory review of our product candidates;
the costs and timing of hiring new employees to support our continued growth;
36

the costs of preparing, filing, and prosecuting patent applications, maintaining and enforcing our intellectual property rights and defending intellectual property-related claims;
the extent to which we acquire or in-license other product candidates and technologies;
the timing, receipt and amount of sales of, or milestone payments related to or royalties on, our current or future product candidates, if any; and
other capital expenditures, working capital requirements, and other general corporate activities.
Until such time, if ever, that we can generate product revenue sufficient to achieve profitability, we expect to finance our cash needs through a combination of public and private equity offerings, debt financings, other third-party funding, strategic alliances, licensing arrangements or marketing and distribution arrangements. To the extent that we raise additional capital through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the ownership interest of our existing shareholders will be diluted, and the terms of these securities may include liquidation or other preferences that adversely affect the rights of our existing shareholders. Debt financing and preferred equity financing, if available, may involve agreements that include covenants limiting or restricting our ability to take specific actions, such as incurring additional debt, making capital expenditures or declaring dividends. If we raise additional funds through other third-party funding, strategic alliances, licensing arrangements or marketing and distribution arrangements, we may have to relinquish valuable rights to our technologies, future revenue streams, research programs or product candidates or grant licenses on terms that may not be favorable to us.
Contractual Obligations and Commitments
Except as discussed in Note 11, "Commitments and Contingencies" to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1, “Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements,” of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, there have been no material changes to our contractual obligations and commitments as included in our audited consolidated financial statements included in the 2023 Form 10-K.
Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates
We have prepared our condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). Our preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates, assumptions, and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, expenses, and related disclosures at the date of the condensed
consolidated financial statements. We evaluate our estimates and judgments on an ongoing basis. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could therefore differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
During the three months ended March 31, 2024, there were no material changes to our critical accounting policies as reported in our annual consolidated financial statements included in the 2023 Form 10-K.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
A description of recently issued accounting pronouncements that may potentially impact our financial position and results of operations, if applicable, is disclosed in Note 2 to our condensed consolidated financial statements appearing at the beginning of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risks
Foreign Currency Translation
Our operations include activities in countries outside the U.S. As a result, our financial results are impacted by factors such as changes in foreign currency exchange rates or weak economic conditions in the foreign markets where we operate. Our monetary exposures on our balance sheet are currently immaterial to our financial position as of March 31, 2024.
We do not engage in any hedging activities against changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
Interest Rate Risk
As of March 31, 2024, we invest our excess cash balances in marketable securities of highly rated financial institutions and investment-grade debt instruments. We seek to diversify our investments and limit the amount of investment concentrations for individual institutions, maturities and investment types. Most of our interest-bearing securities are subject to interest rate risk and could decline in value if interest rates fluctuate. Based on the type of securities we hold, we do not believe a change in interest rates would have a material impact on our financial statements. If interest rates were to increase or decrease by 1.00%, the fair value of our investment portfolio would (decrease) increase by approximately $(0.1) million and $0.1 million, respectively.
We do not engage in any hedging activities against changes in interest rates.

Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially expose the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term debt securities. The Company maintains a portion of its cash deposits in government insured institutions in excess of government insured limits. The Company deposits its cash in financial institutions that it believes have high credit quality and has not experienced any losses on such accounts. The Company's cash management policy permits investments in U.S. federal government and federal agency securities, corporate bonds or commercial paper, supranational and sovereign obligations, certain qualifying money market mutual funds, certain repurchase agreements, and places restrictions on credit ratings, maturities, and concentration by type and issuer. The Company is exposed to credit risk in the event of a default by the financial institutions holding its cash in excess of government insured limits and in the event of default by corporations and governments in which it holds investments in cash equivalents and short-term debt securities, to the extent recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet.
We have not experienced any credit losses or recorded any allowance for credit losses related to our cash, cash equivalents, and short-term debt securities.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, refers to controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to a company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its
stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2024, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of March 31, 2024, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the three months ended March 31, 2024 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
From time to time, we may be subject to litigation and claims arising in the ordinary course of business. We are not currently a party to any material legal proceedings, and we are not aware of any pending or threatened legal proceeding against us that we believe could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results, cash flows or financial condition.
Item 1A.  Risk Factors
Our business is subject to risks and events that, if they occur, could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations and the trading price of our securities. Our risk factors have not changed materially from those described in "Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, filed with the SEC on February 29, 2024.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities, Use of Proceeds, and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities
Pyramid Agreement
In January 2024, we acquired Pyramid Biosciences, Inc. ("Pyramid"), pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated January 7, 2024 (the "Pyramid Agreement"). In consideration for the Pyramid acquisition we made an upfront payment of 255,794 of our common shares. We also agreed to make additional success-based payments upon the achievement of certain regulatory milestones, which we may elect to pay in cash or our common shares. In January 2024, a payment became due to Pyramid related to achievement of a developmental milestone under the Pyramid Agreement, which we elected to pay in 98,129 of our common shares. The shares related to both of these payments were not registered under the Securities Act upon issuance, and a portion of the shares were subsequently registered under our Registration Statement on Form S-3.
Pyramid represented that, among other things, it is an institutional accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D of the Securities Act. The foregoing shares shall be issued in reliance on the private offering exemption provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. See Note 10, "License, Acquisitions and Other Agreements," to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements appearing elsewhere in this report for additional details on this transaction.
Amendment to Knopp Purchase Agreement
On May 3, 2024, we entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to our existing Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, dated as of February 24, 2022, with Knopp Biosciences LLC (“Knopp”) in order to make certain changes to the royalty payment obligations and success-based payments. See Item 5, “Other
Information” for additional information related to the Amendment.

In connection with the Amendment, we agreed to issue to Knopp 1,872,874 of our common shares, valued at approximately $75 million, through a private placement within 60 days of the date of execution of the Amendment (the “2024 Additional Consideration”). We also agreed to issue additional shares of our common shares, valued at approximately $75 million, within 60 days of the first anniversary of execution of the Amendment (the “2025 Additional Consideration”). In addition, we issued to Knopp a warrant (the "Warrant") to purchase 294,195 of our common shares at a purchase price per share of $67.98, subject to certain specified development milestones and achieving a specified market capitalization.

The foregoing issuance and sale of our common shares in connection with the execution of the Amendment and the Warrant have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) or any state securities laws. We have relied on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act under Section 4(a)(2) thereof, for a transaction by an issuer not involving any public offering.

Item 5. Other Information
Rule 10b5-1 Trading Plans
During the quarter ended March 31, 2024, none of our directors or officers adopted or terminated a "Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement" or "non-Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement," as each term is defined in Item 408 of Regulation S-K.
Amendment to Knopp Purchase Agreement
On May 3, 2024, the Company, Biohaven Therapeutics Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“BTL”), and Biohaven Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“BPI”), entered into the Amendment with Knopp pursuant to which the parties thereto amended the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, dated as of February 24, 2022 (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and among Knopp, BTL, BPI (as successor by merger to Channel Biosciences, LLC) and, solely for purposes of certain sections thereof, the Company (as successor to Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd.).
Under the Amendment, the parties thereto agreed to replace the scaled high single digit to low teens royalty payment obligations with a flat royalty payment in the mid-single digits for BHV-7000 and the pipeline programs. The parties also agreed to reduce the success-based payments payable under the Purchase Agreement by removing all commercial sales-based milestones, which were up to $562.5 million, and reducing the developmental and regulatory milestones, which were up to $575 million, to up to $210 million based on regulatory approvals in the United States and
39


EMEA for BHV-7000 ($25 million of which has already been paid) and up to an additional $60 million based on regulatory approval in the United States for the other Kv7 pipeline programs. BTL retains the ability to pay these contingent milestone payments in cash or in Biohaven Shares at the election of Biohaven, subject to the same increases if BTL elects to pay in Biohaven Shares.
In consideration of the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations, the Company agreed to issue to Knopp the 2024 Additional Consideration and the 2025 Additional Consideration. The Company has also given Knopp the option to request a one-time cash true-up payment from the Company in December 2024 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2024 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, and a one-time cash true-up payment from the Company in December 2025 in the event that Knopp continues to hold the Biohaven Shares representing the 2025 Additional Consideration and the value of such shares has declined, in each case, subject to certain conditions.
As further consideration for the revisions to the success-based payment and royalty payment obligations in the Amendment, the Company issued to Knopp the Warrant to purchase 294,195 Biohaven Shares at a purchase price per share of $67.98, subject to certain specified development milestones and the Company achieving a specified market capitalization.
