NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

June 30, 2019

(unaudited)

 

1.

Description of Business

ChemoCentryx, Inc. (the Company) commenced operations in 1997. The Company is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing new medications targeted at inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases and cancer. The Company’s principal operations are in the United States and it operates in one segment.

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

The financial information filed is unaudited. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) that the Company considers necessary for the fair statement of the results of operations for the interim periods covered and of the financial condition of the Company at the date of the interim balance sheet. The December 31, 2018 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet was derived from audited financial statements. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire year or any other interim period. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 11, 2019.

 

2.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Concentration of Credit Risk

The Company invests in a variety of financial instruments and, by its policy, limits the amount of credit exposure with any one issuer, industry or geographic area.

Accounts receivable are typically unsecured and are concentrated in the pharmaceutical industry and government sector. Accordingly, the Company may be exposed to credit risk generally associated with pharmaceutical companies and government funded entities. The Company has not historically experienced any significant losses due to concentration of credit risk.

Accounts receivable consists of the following (in thousands):

 

     June 30,
2019
     December 31,
2018
 

Vifor (International) Ltd., and/or its affiliates, or collectively, Vifor

   $ —        $ 2,058  

Net Loss Per Share

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, without consideration for common stock equivalents.

Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the sum of the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and dilutive common stock equivalent shares outstanding for the period. The Company’s potentially dilutive common stock equivalent shares, which include incremental common shares issuable upon (i) the exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants, (ii) vesting of restricted stock units (RSUs) and restricted stock awards (RSAs), and (iii) the purchase from contributions to the 2012 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the ESPP), (calculated based on the treasury stock method), are only included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share when their effect is dilutive.

Table of Contents

For the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, the following potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per share due to their anti-dilutive effect:

Comprehensive Loss

Comprehensive loss comprises net loss and other comprehensive loss. For the periods presented, other comprehensive loss consists of unrealized gains and losses on the Company’s available-for-sale securities. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, amounts reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss to net loss for unrealized gains (losses) on available-for-sale securities were not significant, and were recorded as part of other income, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. For the three months ended June 30, 2019 and three and six months ended June 30, 2018, there were no sales of investments and therefore there were no reclassifications.

Leases

The Company determines if an arrangement includes a lease at inception. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets, accrued and other current liabilities and other non-current liabilities on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at commencement date. The Company uses the incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at lease commencement date in determining the present value of future payments. The operating lease ROU asset also excludes lease incentives. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise any such options. Lease expense for minimum lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company has elected not to apply the recognition requirements for short-term leases. For lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, the Company generally accounts for them separately.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard requires the Company to recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from leases on the balance sheet and disclose qualitative and quantitative information about its leasing arrangements. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted this new standard using the modified retrospective approach in accordance with Leases – Targeted Improvements (ASU No. 2018-11). The Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within ASU No. 2018-11, which among other things, allowed the Company to carry forward the historical lease classification of those leases in place as of January 1, 2019. Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are presented under Topic 842. Prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with the Company’s historical accounting under previous lease guidance, ASC Topic 840, Leases (Topic 840).

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The new standard replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology under the current standard with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. The Company will be required to use a forward-looking expected credit loss model for accounts receivable and other financial instruments. Credit losses relating to available-for-sale debt securities will also be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a reduction in the amortized cost basis of the securities. The new standard will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted on January 1, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on its financial statements and does not expect the adoption of this accounting guidance to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718). The new standard simplifies the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees by aligning it with the accounting for share-based payments to employees, with certain exceptions. The Company adopted this new standard on January 1, 2019. The adoption of this accounting guidance did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

The Company has reviewed other recent accounting pronouncements and concluded they are either not applicable to the business or that no material effect is expected on the consolidated financial statements as a result of future adoption.

In August 2018, the SEC adopted amendments to certain disclosure requirements in Securities Act Release No. 33-10532, Disclosure Update and Simplification. These amendments eliminated, modified, or integrated into other SEC requirements certain disclosure rules. Among the amendments was the requirement to present an analysis of changes in stockholders’ equity in the interim financial statements included in quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. The analysis, which can be presented as a footnote or separate statement, is required for the current and comparative quarter and year-to-date interim periods. The amendments became effective for the Company in its interim financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. The adoption of these SEC amendments did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, cash flows or stockholders’ equity.

Cash equivalents in the tables above exclude cash of $3.1 million and $2.1 million as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. All available-for-sale securities held as of June 30, 2019 had contractual maturities of less than two years. There have been no significant realized gains or losses on available-for-sale securities for the periods presented. The Company applies the specific identification method to determine the cost basis of the securities sold. No significant available-for-sale securities held as of June 30, 2019 have been in a continuous unrealized loss position for more than 12 months. As of June 30, 2019, unrealized losses on available-for-sale investments are not attributed to credit risk and are considered to be temporary. The Company believes that it is more-likely-than-not that investments in an unrealized loss position will be held until maturity or the recovery of the cost basis of the investment. The Company believes it has no other-than-temporary impairments on its securities because it does not intend to sell these securities and it believes it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell these securities before the recovery of their amortized cost basis. To date, the Company has not recorded any impairment charges on marketable securities related to other-than-temporary declines in market value.

Fair Value Measurements

The Company determines the fair value of financial assets and liabilities using three levels of inputs as follows:

Level 1—Inputs which include quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

Level 2—Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company’s financial assets subject to fair value measurements on a recurring basis and the level of inputs used in such measurements were as follows as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 (in thousands):

During the six months ended June 30, 2019, there were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 financial assets. When the Company uses observable market prices for identical securities that are traded in less active markets, the Company classifies its marketable debt instruments as Level 2. When observable market prices for identical securities are not available, the Company prices its marketable debt instruments using non-binding market consensus prices that are corroborated with observable market data; quoted market prices for similar instruments; or pricing models, such as a discounted cash flow model, with all significant inputs derived from or corroborated with observable market data. Non-binding market consensus prices are based on the proprietary valuation models of pricing providers or brokers. These valuation models incorporate a number of inputs, including non-binding and binding broker quotes; observable market prices for identical or similar securities; and the internal assumptions of pricing providers or brokers that use observable market inputs and, to a lesser degree, unobservable market inputs. The Company corroborates non-binding market consensus prices with observable market data using statistical models when observable market data exists. The discounted cash flow model uses observable market inputs, such as LIBOR-based yield curves, currency spot and forward rates, and credit ratings.

Long-term Debt

On December 28, 2017 (the Closing Date), the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with Hercules Capital, Inc. (Hercules) which the Company amended in December 2018, pursuant to which term loans in an aggregate principal amount of up to $50.0 million (the Credit Facility) are available to the Company in three tranches, subject to certain terms and conditions. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had borrowed $20.0 million under the Credit Facility and the remaining available amount had expired.

Advances under the Credit Facility bear an interest rate equal to the greater of either (i) 8.05% plus the prime rate as reported from time to time in The Wall Street Journal minus 4.75%, and (ii) 8.05%. At June 30, 2019, the interest rate on the outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility was 8.80%. For advances made under the first and second tranches, the Company will make interest-only payments through July 1, 2021, and will then repay the principal balance and interest on the advances in equal monthly installments after the interest-only period and continuing through December 1, 2022.

The Company may prepay advances under the Credit Facility, in whole or in part, at any time, subject to a prepayment charge equal to: (a) 1.5% of the amount so prepaid, if such prepayment occurs during the second year following the Closing Date; and (b) 1.0% of the amount so prepaid, if such prepayment occurs after the second year following the Closing Date. The Credit Facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets, excluding intellectual property.

In addition, Hercules has the right to participate, in an amount up to $2.0 million, in any subsequent equity financing broadly marketed to multiple investors in an amount greater than $20.0 million. The Credit Facility also includes customary affirmative restrictions on the payment of dividends and negative covenants, and events of default, the occurrence and continuance of which provide Hercules with the right to demand immediate repayment of all principal and unpaid interest under the Credit Facility, and to exercise remedies against the Company and the collateral securing the Credit Facility. The Company was in compliance with all loan covenants for all periods presented.

The Company will pay an end-of-term charge for each tranche it draws down, which will occur on the earliest of (i) the applicable tranche maturity date; (ii) the date that the Company prepays all of the outstanding principal under such tranche in full, or (iii) the date the loan payments are accelerated due to an event of default. For the first and second tranches, the end of term charge will be $0.9 million and $0.3 million, respectively.

In addition, the Company paid a commitment charge of 1% of the advances made under the Credit Facility, with a minimum charge of $162,500 paid on the Closing Date. Also, the Company reimbursed Hercules for costs incurred related to the Credit Facility. These charges were recorded as discounts to the carrying value of the loan and are amortized over the term of the loan using the effective interest method.

As described further in “Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies”, the Company adopted Topic 842 as of January 1, 2019. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.

In May 2004, the Company entered into a noncancelable operating lease for its current office and primary research facility located in Mountain View, California. The Company received a discounted lease rate during the first year of the agreement. In August 2012, the Company entered into an amendment to the lease agreement for the same facility to extend the term through April 2019. In April 2017, the Company entered into a second amendment to the lease agreement for the same facility to extend the term of the lease through April 2020. In May 2019, the Company entered into a third amendment to the lease agreement for the same facility to extend the term of the lease through April 2021.

Related-Party Transactions

Vifor

Vifor held 10,676,825 shares of the Company’s common stock as of June 30, 2019. The Company has collaboration agreements with Vifor: the Avacopan Agreements and the CCX140 Agreements (each as described below). See “Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Concentration of Credit Risk” for additional information on accounts receivable balance due from Vifor.

Avacopan Agreements

In May 2016, the Company entered into an exclusive collaboration and license agreement with Vifor pursuant to which the Company granted Vifor exclusive rights to commercialize avacopan in Europe and certain other markets (the Avacopan Agreement). Avacopan is the Company’s lead drug candidate for the treatment of patients with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic auto-antibody associated vasculitis (AAV) and other rare diseases. The Avacopan Agreement also provided Vifor with an exclusive option to negotiate during 2016 a worldwide license agreement for one of the Company’s other drug candidates, CCX140, an orally-administered inhibitor of the chemokine receptor known as CCR2. In connection with the Avacopan Agreement, the Company received a non-refundable upfront payment of $85.0 million, comprising $60.0 million in cash and $25.0 million in the form of an equity investment to purchase 3,333,333 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $7.50 per share.

In February 2017, Vifor and the Company expanded the Vifor territories under the Avacopan Agreement to include all markets outside the United States and China (the Avacopan Amendment). In connection with this February 2017 arrangement, the Company received a $20.0 million upfront payment for the expanded rights. In June 2018, Vifor and the Company further expanded the Vifor territories under the Avacopan Agreement to provide Vifor with exclusive commercialization rights in China (the Avacopan Letter Agreement, and together with the Avacopan Agreement and the Avacopan Amendment, the Avacopan Agreements). The Company retains control of ongoing and future development of avacopan (other than country-specific development in the licensed territories) and all commercialization rights to avacopan in the United States. In consideration for the Avacopan Letter Agreement, the Company received a $5.0 million payment for the expanded rights.

Upon achievement of certain regulatory and commercial milestones with avacopan, the Company will receive additional payments of up to $460.0 million under the Avacopan Agreement. In addition, the Company will receive royalties, with rates ranging from the low teens to the mid-twenties, on future potential net sales of avacopan by Vifor in the licensed territories. In December 2017, the Company achieved a $50.0 million regulatory milestone when the European Medicines Agency (EMA) validated the Company’s Conditional marketing authorisation (CMA) application for avacopan for the treatment of AAV.

The Company identified the following material promises under the Avacopan Agreements: (1) the license related to avacopan; (2) the development and regulatory services for the submission of the marketing authorisation application (MAA); and (3) an exclusive option to negotiate a worldwide license agreement for CCX140, which expired in 2016. The Company considered that the license has standalone functionality and is capable of being distinct. However, the Company determined that the license is not distinct from the development and regulatory services within the context of the agreement because Vifor is dependent on the Company to execute the development and regulatory activities in order for Vifor to benefit from the license. As such, the license is combined with the development and regulatory services into a single performance obligation. The exclusive option related to CCX140 is a separate performance obligation and the Company determined that its transaction price is not material. As such, the transaction price under this arrangement is allocated to the license and the development and regulatory services.

Table of Contents

As of June 30, 2019, the transaction price of $153.0 million consists of the following:

 

   

$78.0 million upfront payment under the May 2016 Avacopan Agreement. Of the total $85.0 million upfront payment received under the May 2016 Avacopan Agreement, $7.0 million was allocated to the issuance of 3,333,333 shares of the Company’s common stock valued at $2.10 per share, the closing stock price on the effective date of the agreement, May 9, 2016. The remaining $78.0 million was allocated to the transaction price under this arrangement;

 

   

$20.0 million upfront payment under the February 2017 Avacopan Amendment;

 

   

$50.0 million regulatory milestone payment achieved upon the validation of the Company’s CMA application by the EMA, for avacopan for the treatment of AAV in December 2017; and

 

   

$5.0 million non-refundable upfront payment under the Avacopan Letter Agreement.

The Company will re-evaluate the transaction price in each reporting period and as uncertain events are resolved or other changes in circumstances occur.

The Company determined that the combined performance obligation will be performed over the duration of the contract, which began on the effective date of May 9, 2016 and ends upon completion of development and regulatory services. The Company uses a cost-based input method to measure proportional performance and to calculate the corresponding amount of revenue to recognize. The Company believes this is the best measure of progress because other measures do not reflect how the Company transfers its performance obligation to Vifor. In applying the cost-based input method of revenue recognition, the Company measures actual costs incurred relative to budgeted costs to fulfill the combined performance obligation. These costs consist primarily of third-party contract costs. Revenue is recognized based on actual costs incurred as a percentage of total budgeted costs as the Company completes its performance obligations.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company recognized $5.5 million and $12.1 million of collaboration and license revenue under the Avacopan Agreements, respectively, as compared to $12.9 million and $21.1 million during the same respective periods in 2018.

CCX140 Agreements

In December 2016, the Company entered into a second collaboration and license agreement with Vifor pursuant to which the Company granted Vifor exclusive rights to commercialize CCX140 (the CCX140 Agreement) in markets outside the United States and China. CCX140 is an orally-administered inhibitor of the chemokine receptor known as CCR2. The Company retains marketing rights in the United States and China, while Vifor has commercialization rights in the rest of the world. Pursuant to the CCX140 Agreement, the Company is responsible for the clinical development of CCX140 in rare renal diseases and is reimbursed for Vifor’s equal share of such development cost. Vifor retains an option to solely develop and commercialize CCX140 in more prevalent forms of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Should Vifor later exercise the CKD option, the Company would receive co-promotion rights for CKD in the United States. Under the terms of the CCX140 Agreement, the Company received a non-refundable upfront payment of $50.0 million in 2017.

In June 2018, the Company and Vifor entered into a letter agreement to expand Vifor’s rights to include the right to exclusively commercialize CCX140 in China (the CCX140 Letter Agreement). In connection with the CCX140 Letter Agreement, the Company received a non-refundable payment of $5.0 million. The Company and Vifor also entered into an amendment to the CCX140 Agreement (the CCX140 Amendment, and together with the CCX140 Agreement and the CCX140 Letter Agreement, the CCX140 Agreements) to clarify the timing of certain payments with respect to development funding of the CCX140 program by Vifor, and the Company received a non-refundable payment of $11.5 million. The Company retains control of ongoing and future development of CCX140 (other than country-specific development in the licensed territories), and all commercialization rights to CCX140 in the United States.

Upon achievement of certain regulatory and commercial milestones with CCX140, the Company will receive additional payments of up to $625.0 million under the CCX140 Agreement. In addition, the Company will receive tiered royalties, with rates ranging from ten to the mid-twenties, on net sales of CCX140 in the licensed territories.

The Company identified the following material promises under the CCX140 Agreements: (1) the license related to CCX140; and (2) the development and regulatory services for the submission of the MAA. The Company considered that the license has standalone functionality and is capable of being distinct. However, the Company determined that the license is not distinct from the development and regulatory services within the context of the agreement because Vifor is dependent on the Company to execute the development and regulatory activities in order for Vifor to benefit from the license. As such, the license is combined with the development and regulatory services into a single performance obligation.

As of June 30, 2019, the transaction price of $113.5 million consists of the following:

 

   

$50.0 million upfront payment under the CCX140 Agreement;

 

   

$58.5 million of CCX140 development funding by Vifor; and

Subsequent Event

Lease Agreement

In July 2019, the Company entered into a ten-year operating lease for a 96,463 square foot facility in San Carlos, California to replace its current headquarters located in Mountain View, California, for which the lease expires in April 2021. Upon execution of the lease agreement, the Company provided the landlord an approximately $1.1 million security deposit in the form of a letter of credit. Subject to certain conditions pursuant to the lease, the Company expects monthly rent payments on the new facility to commence in the second quarter of 2021. The Company will pay an initial annual base rent of approximately $6.5 million, which is subject to scheduled 3% annual increases, plus certain operating expenses. The Company has been provided a tenant improvement allowance of $15.4 million plus an additional allowance of up to $4.8 million for the same. If the additional allowance is provided, such amount will be repaid by the Company as additional rent in equal monthly payments at a rate of 7% per annum through the initial term of the lease. The Company has the right to sublease the facility, subject to landlord consent. The Company also has the option to extend the lease for five years.

Overview

ChemoCentryx is a biopharmaceutical company developing new medications targeted at inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Each of our drug candidates is designed to selectively block a specific chemoattractant receptor, leaving the rest of the immune system intact. Our drug candidates are small molecules, which are orally administered, and, if approved, could address unmet medical needs, including improved efficacy, and offer significant quality of life benefits, since patients swallow a capsule or pill instead of having to visit a clinic for an infusion or undergo an injection.

Table of Contents

In 2016, we executed on our strategy to form an alliance with a partner that could provide upfront fees and milestone payments to support the clinical development of our two leading drug candidates, avacopan and CCX140, to registration and pay us royalties upon sales in international markets, while we develop our own commercial infrastructure to sell directly in the United States.

To help communicate the breadth of our drug discovery platform, we have segmented our pipeline into early stage and late stage drug candidates.

Late Stage Drug Candidates

We have chosen to focus initially on orphan indications, where drug candidates tend to enjoy a faster path to market and better reimbursement. Our leading drug candidates address areas of clear unmet need, where the current standard of care, or SOC, is insufficient to halt progression of the disease and/or where today’s treatment options come with serious side effects, such as those which accompany the prolonged use of steroids:

Avacopan (CCX168) - Inhibition of Complement-Mediated Pathways in Orphan Diseases

Avacopan (formerly CCX168) is an orally-administered complement inhibitor targeting the C5a receptor, or C5aR, and is being developed for orphan diseases, including (i) anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic auto-antibody associated vasculitis, or AAV, a devastating autoimmune disease that damages blood vessels and can lead to kidney failure, pulmonary failure and damage to other tissues; (ii) complement 3 glomerulopathy, or C3G, a debilitating disease that can lead to kidney failure; and (iii) moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa, or HS, a chronic, inflammatory, debilitating skin disease characterized by recurrent, painful, nodules and abscesses, ultimately leading to the formation of draining fistulas (also known as sinus tracts) as well as scarring.

Avacopan has been granted orphan drug designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for the treatment of AAV and C3G and by the European Medicines Agency, or EMA, for the treatment of C3G and microscopic polyangiitis and granulomatosis with polyangiitis, both forms of AAV. Additionally, avacopan was granted PRIority MEdicines, or PRIME, designation from the EMA, to expedite its clinical development, and to potentially accelerate its marketing authorization.

Following completion of two randomized, placebo controlled Phase II clinical trials in patients with AAV, in which avacopan was well-tolerated and provided effective steroid-free control of the disease, we launched the ADVOCATE Phase III trial in December 2016. The FDA and the EMA concurred with the design of the study. ADVOCATE is a randomized, double-blind two-arm study which enrolled 331 patients at over 200 sites in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Patient enrollment of the ADVOCATE Phase III trial was completed in September 2018 and we expect to report topline data from this trial in the fourth quarter of 2019. Additionally, we launched a registration-supporting clinical trial to study avacopan for the treatment of patients with C3G, the ACCOLADE trial, for which we aim to complete enrollment in 2019 and initiated a large placebo-controlled Phase IIb clinical trial, the AURORA trial, for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe HS in the fourth quarter of 2018.

CCX140 - Chronic and Orphan Kidney Diseases

CCX140, an orally-administered inhibitor of the chemokine receptor known as CCR2, has been in development for diabetic nephropathy, or DN, a form of chronic kidney disease, or CKD, and is now being developed for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, or FSGS, a rare renal disease characterized by progressive proteinuria, excess protein in the urine, and impaired renal function. CCX140 has been granted orphan drug designation by the FDA for the treatment of FSGS.

A global Phase II clinical trial of CCX140 in patients with DN met its primary endpoint by demonstrating that CCX140 given orally once daily added to a SOC renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor treatment resulted in a statistically significant reduction in proteinuria, beyond that achieved with SOC alone, with the most pronounced effect shown in the patients with highest levels of proteinuria. Based on the safety and efficacy data related to reduction in proteinuria observed in the Phase II trial in DN, we launched two Phase II clinical trials, the LUMINA trials, of CCX140 for the treatment of primary FSGS, with the LUMINA-2 trial being for patients with nephrotic range proteinuria and the LUMINA-1 trial being for patients with sub-nephrotic proteinuria, for which there are currently no FDA-approved treatments. Patient enrollment completion of LUMINA-1 is expected in mid-August 2019, with topline data anticipated in the first half of 2020.

Kidney Health Alliance with Vifor

In May 2016, we announced a partnership, which we refer to as the Avacopan Agreement, with Vifor (International) Ltd., and/or its affiliates, or collectively, Vifor, a European-based world leader specializing in kidney disease. While under this agreement we retained all rights to the United States and China, we granted Vifor exclusive commercialization rights to avacopan in Europe and certain other international markets. In December 2016, we entered into an additional agreement with Vifor, which we refer to as the CCX140 Agreement, relating to CCX140, our other late stage drug candidate. Under the CCX140 Agreement, we again retained all rights to the United States and China and we granted Vifor exclusive worldwide commercialization rights outside of the United States and China. In February 2017, we announced a further agreement with Vifor that harmonized the geographic commercialization rights underlying the agreements for both drug candidates, which we refer to as the Avacopan Amendment. In June 2018, we entered into additional agreements with Vifor to further expand Vifor’s exclusive commercialization rights to include China under the Avacopan Agreement (the Avacopan Letter Agreement) and the CCX140 Agreement (the CCX140 Letter Agreement).

We have secured $215 million in upfront cash and milestone payments pursuant to our agreements with Vifor and are eligible for additional substantial milestone payments. Through our alliance, we maintain the commercialization rights to avacopan and CCX140 in the United States, and also retain control of the clinical development programs for orphan renal disease. Vifor gained the exclusive commercialization rights for all other international markets, and is obligated to pay us tiered royalties, with rates ranging from ten to the mid-twenties, on potential net sales.

At a future time defined in the CCX140 Agreement, Vifor has an option to solely develop and commercialize CCX140 in more prevalent forms of CKD. Should Vifor later exercise the CKD option, we would receive co-promotion rights for CKD in the United States, and we estimate that the clinical development and registration process for CKD would end at approximately the same time as Orphan Drug exclusivity.

While we have focused initially on kidney and dermatological diseases, our target-specific and selective approach designed to stop the spread of inflammatory disease-inducing cells shows promise in other disease areas. Over time we plan to bring forward drug candidates to treat a range of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, as well as cancer, where our drug candidate CCX872 has shown promise in a Phase Ib trial for advanced pancreatic cancer. We expect that our ability to do so will grow as we increase our scale and to the extent that we start to earn revenues and royalties from the commercialization of our late stage kidney disease franchise.

Since commencing our operations in 1997, our efforts have focused on research, development and the advancement of our drug candidates into and through clinical trials. As a result, we have incurred significant losses. We have funded our operations primarily through the sale of convertible preferred and common stock, contract revenue under our collaborations, government contracts and grants and borrowings under equipment financing arrangements.

As of June 30, 2019, we had an accumulated deficit of $401.6 million. We expect to continue to incur net losses as we develop our drug candidates, expand clinical trials for our drug candidates currently in clinical development, expand our research and development activities, expand our systems and facilities, seek regulatory approvals and engage in commercialization preparation activities in anticipation of FDA approval of our drug candidates. In addition, if a product is approved for commercialization, we will need to expand our organization. Significant capital is required to launch a product and many expenses are incurred before revenues are received. We are unable to predict the extent of any future losses or when we will become profitable, if at all.

Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates

We adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842, Leases, on January 1, 2019, resulting in changes to our accounting policies for leases. There have been no material changes in significant judgments and estimates for our critical accounting policies during the six months ended June 30, 2019, as compared to those disclosed in “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the SEC on March 11, 2019.

Results of Operations

Revenue

We have not generated any revenue from product sales. For the periods presented, our revenues were derived from collaboration and license revenue related to the Avacopan Agreement and the CCX140 Agreement, in each case, as amended, and the related letter agreements. Total revenue for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, was as follows (in thousands):

 

     Three Months Ended      Six Months Ended

We use a cost-based input method to measure proportional performance and to calculate the corresponding amount of revenue to recognize. In applying the cost-based input method of revenue recognition, we measure actual costs incurred relative to budgeted costs to fulfill the combined performance obligation. These costs consist primarily of third-party contract costs. Revenue is recognized based on actual costs incurred as a percentage of total budgeted costs as we complete our performance obligations.

The decrease in revenue from 2018 to 2019 for the three and six month periods was primarily due to lower actual costs incurred and higher total budgeted costs associated with avacopan-related activities.

Research and development expenses

Research and development expenses represent costs incurred to conduct basic research, the discovery and development of novel small molecule therapeutics, development of our suite of proprietary drug discovery technologies, preclinical studies and clinical trials of our drug candidates. We recognize all research and development expenses as they are incurred. These expenses consist primarily of salaries and related benefits, including stock-based compensation, third-party contract costs relating to research, formulation, manufacturing, preclinical study and clinical trial activities, laboratory consumables, and allocated facility costs. Total research and development expenses for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, were as follows (in thousands):

 

     Three Months Ended      Six Months Ended

Research and development expenses remained relatively consistent from 2018 to 2019 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019. Expenses decreased for the avacopan ADVOCATE Phase III pivotal trial as the study was fully enrolled in 2018, while Phase II clinical expenses increased primarily due to patient enrollment of the avacopan AURORA Phase IIb clinical trial in patients with HS and the two CCX140 LUMINA Phase II clinical trials in patients with FSGS.

We track development expenses that are directly attributable to our clinical development candidates by phase of clinical development. Such development expenses include third-party contract costs relating to formulation, manufacturing, preclinical studies and clinical trial activities. We allocate research and development salaries, benefits or indirect costs to our development candidates and we have included such costs in research and development expenses. All remaining research and development expenses are reflected in “Research and drug discovery” which represents early stage drug discovery programs. Such expenses include allocated employee salaries and related benefits, stock-based compensation, consulting and contracted services to supplement our in-house laboratory activities, laboratory consumables and allocated facility costs associated with these earlier stage programs.

At any given time, we typically have several active early stage research and drug discovery projects. Our internal resources, employees and infrastructure are not directly tied to any individual research or drug discovery project and are typically deployed across multiple projects. As such, we do not maintain information regarding these costs incurred for our early stage research and drug discovery programs on a project specific basis. We expect our research and development expenses to increase as we advance our development programs further and increase the number and size of our clinical trials. The process of conducting preclinical studies and clinical trials necessary to obtain regulatory approval is costly and time consuming. We or our partners may never succeed in achieving marketing approval for any of our drug candidates. The probability of success for each drug candidate may be affected by numerous factors, including preclinical data, clinical data, competition, manufacturing capability and commercial viability. Our strategy includes entering into additional partnerships with third parties for the development and commercialization of some of our independent drug candidates.

The successful development of our drug candidates is highly uncertain and may not result in approved products. Completion dates and completion costs can vary significantly for each drug candidate and are difficult to predict for each product. Given the uncertainty associated with clinical trial enrollments and the risks inherent in the development process, we are unable to determine the duration and completion costs of the current or future clinical trials of our drug candidates or if, or to what extent, we will generate revenues from the commercialization and sale of any of our drug candidates. We anticipate we will make determinations as to which programs to pursue and how much funding to direct to each program on an ongoing basis in response to the scientific and clinical success of each drug candidate, as well as ongoing assessment as to each drug candidate’s commercial potential. We will need to raise additional capital or may seek additional strategic alliances in the future in order to complete the development and commercialization of our drug candidates, including avacopan, CCX140 and CCX872.

General and administrative expenses

Total general and administrative expenses for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, were as follows (in thousands):

 

     Three Months Ended      Six Months Ended  
     June 30,      June 30,

Table of Contents

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries and related benefits, including stock-based compensation and travel expenses, in executive, finance, business and corporate development and other administrative functions. Other general and administrative expenses include allocated facility-related costs not otherwise included in research and development expenses, legal costs of pursuing patent protection of our intellectual property, and professional fees for auditing, tax, and legal services.

The increases from 2018 to 2019 for the three and six month periods were primarily due to higher employee-related expenses, including those associated with our commercialization planning efforts, and higher professional fees.

We anticipate that our general and administrative expenses will increase substantially in the future primarily due to pre-commercial activities and personnel costs to support the potential launch of avacopan for the treatment of AAV in the United States.

Other income, net

Other income, net primarily consists of interest income earned on our marketable securities. Total other income, net for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, was as follows (in thousands):

 

     Three Months Ended      Six Months Ended

The increases in total other income, net from 2018 to 2019 for the three and six month periods were primarily due to increased interest income resulting from higher cash and investment balances and rate of return on the investment portfolio in 2019, partially offset by increased interest expense due to additional borrowings under the loan and security agreement, or Credit Facility, with Hercules Capital, Inc., or Hercules. We expect interest expense to increase in future periods if interest rates continue to rise.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2019, we had approximately $223.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments. The following table shows a summary of our cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands):

 

     Six Months Ended

Investing activities

   $ (33,888    $ (37,943

Financing activities

   $ 77,706      $ 17,383  

Operating activities.    Net cash used in operating activities was $33.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $49.3 million for the same period in 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a higher net loss and changes in working capital items driven by the receipt of a $50.0 million milestone payment in connection with the Avacopan Agreement, a $10.0 million upfront commitment under the Avacopan Amendment, a $10.0 million of aggregate payments under the June 2018 Avacopan Letter Agreement and the CCX140 Letter Agreement and a $11.5 million payment for CCX140 development funding by Vifor in the 2018 period.

Investing activities.    Net cash used in investing activities for the periods presented primarily relate to the purchases, sales and maturities of investments used to fund the day-to-day needs of our business. Following the March 2019 issuance of common stock through our Equity Distribution Agreement, or EDA, with Piper Jaffray & Co., we invested the majority of our net proceeds received in short and long-term investments. For the same period in 2018, the use of cash in investing activities presented represents the investment of funds received under the Avacopan Agreement, as amended, and the related letter agreements.

Financing activities.    Net cash provided by financing activities was $77.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $17.4 million for the same period in 2018. Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2019 included net proceeds of $73.3 million from the issuance of common stock under the EDA. Net cash provided by financing activities for both periods presented included proceeds from the exercise of stock options and stock purchases from contributions to our 2012 Employee Stock Purchase Plan, and cash used for tendered ChemoCentryx, Inc. common stock to satisfy employee tax withholding requirements upon vesting of restricted stock units.

In December 2017, we entered into the Credit Facility with Hercules, which provided for borrowings of up to $50.0 million in three tranches, subject to certain terms and conditions. Through June 30, 2019, we borrowed $20.0 million under the Credit Facility and the remaining $30.0 million of available borrowings expired as of June 30, 2019. We intend to use the net proceeds from the Credit Facility for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment of debt and working capital. We were in compliance with all loan covenants as of June 30, 2019. See “Note 6. Long-term Debt” in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional information regarding our borrowings.

As of June 30, 2019, we had approximately $223.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments. We believe that our available cash, cash equivalents and investments will be sufficient to fund our anticipated level of operations for at least 12 months following our financial statement issuance date, August 5, 2019. However, our forecast of the period of time through which our financial resources will be adequate to support our operations is a forward-looking statement that involves risks and uncertainties, and actual results could vary materially.

Our future capital requirements are difficult to forecast and will depend on many factors, including:

 

   

the terms and timing of any other collaborative, licensing and other arrangements that we may establish;

 

   

the initiation, progress, timing and completion of preclinical studies and clinical trials for our drug candidates and potential drug candidates;

 

   

the number and characteristics of drug candidates that we pursue;

 

   

the progress, costs and results of our clinical trials;

 

   

the outcome, timing and cost of regulatory approvals;

 

   

delays that may be caused by changing regulatory approvals;

 

   

the cost and timing of hiring new employees to support continued growth;

 

   

the costs involved in filing and prosecuting patent applications and enforcing and defending patent claims;

 

   

the cost and timing of procuring clinical and commercial supplies of our drug candidates;

 

   

the cost and timing of establishing sales, marketing and distribution capabilities; and

 

   

the extent to which we acquire or invest in businesses, products or technologies.

Contractual Obligations and Commitments

There have been no material changes outside the ordinary course of our business to the contractual obligations we reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the SEC on March 11, 2019, other than as set forth below.

In May 2019, we entered into a third amendment to the existing lease agreement for our current headquarters in Mountain View. See “Note 7. Commitments” in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for details of the amendment. In July 2019, we entered into a new lease agreement (the Lease) in San Carlos, California to replace our current headquarters located in Mountain View, California. See “Note 10. Subsequent Event” in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional details of the Lease.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Our market risks at June 30, 2019 have not changed significantly from those discussed in “Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the SEC on March 11, 2019, other than the following:

Advances under the Credit Facility bear an interest rate equal to the greater of (i) 8.05% plus the prime rate as reported from time to time in The Wall Street Journal minus 4.75%, and (ii) 8.05%. We are affected by market risk exposure primarily through the effect of changes in interest rates on amounts payable under the Credit Facility. At June 30, 2019, borrowings under the Credit Facility totaled $20.0 million with an interest rate of 8.80%. We are obligated to make interest-only payments through July 1, 2021, at which point we will then be obligated to repay the principal balance and interest on the advances in equal monthly installments after the interest-only period and continuing through December 1, 2022. If the amount outstanding under the Credit Facility remained at this level for an entire year and interest rate increased by 1%, our annual interest expense would increase by an additional $200,000. See “Note 6. Long-term Debt” in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional information regarding our borrowings.

 

Item 4.

Controls and Procedures

Conclusions Regarding the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of June 30, 2019, management, with the participation of our Disclosure Committee, performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial and Administrative Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objective. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial and Administrative Officer concluded that, as of June 30, 2019, the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended June 30, 2019, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
