Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

NOTE 1 - BUSINESS

 

Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. (Relmada or the Company) (a Nevada corporation), is a clinical-stage, publicly traded biotechnology company focused on the development of esmethadone (d-methadone, dextromethadone, REL-1017), an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist. Esmethadone is a New Chemical Entity (NCE) that potentially addresses areas of high unmet medical need in the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases and other disorders.

 

In addition to the normal risks associated with a new business venture, there can be no assurance that the Company’s research and development will be successfully completed or that any product will be approved or commercially viable. The Company is subject to risks common to companies in the biotechnology industry including, but not limited to, dependence on collaborative arrangements, development by the Company or its competitors of new technological innovations, dependence on key personnel, protection of proprietary technology, and compliance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other governmental regulations and approval requirements.

 

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) for interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2021 and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Liquidity

 

As shown in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred negative operating cash flows of $19,429,743 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and has an accumulated deficit of $344,812,895 from inception through March 31, 2022.

 

Relmada has funded its past operations through equity raises and most recently in the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company raised net proceeds of $29,583,542 from the sale of common stock through our at-the-market (ATM) equity offering, $64,800 through the exercise of options and $300,006 through the exercise of warrants.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Management believes that the Company’s existing cash and cash equivalents will enable it to fund operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements for at least 12 months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. Beyond that point management will evaluate the size and scope of any subsequent trials that will affect the timing of additional financings through public or private sales of equity or debt securities or from bank or other loans or through strategic collaboration and/or licensing agreements. Any such expenditures related to any subsequent clinical trials will not be incurred until such additional financing is raised. Further, additional financing related to subsequent clinical trials does not affect the Company’s conclusion that based on the cash on hand and the budgeted cash flow requirements, the Company has sufficient funds to maintain operations for at least 12 months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the Company’s accounts and those of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The ongoing pandemic may adversely affect our business. Based on the Company’s current assessment, the Company does not expect any material impact on its long-term development timeline and its liquidity due to the worldwide spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). However, the Company is actively monitoring this situation and the possible effects on its financial condition, liquidity, operations, suppliers, industry, and workforce.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The significant estimates are stock-based compensation expenses and recorded amounts related to income taxes.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers cash deposits and all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company’s cash deposits are held at two high-credit-quality financial institutions. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents at these institutions exceed federally insured limits. The Company’s cash balance of $44,934,376 at March 31, 2022 at these institutions exceed the federally insured limits.

 

Short-term Investments

 

The Company’s investments consist entirely of mutual funds. The securities are measured at fair value based on the net asset value (NAV). Substantially all equity investments in nonconsolidated entities are measured at fair value with recurring changes recognized in earnings, except for those accounted for using equity method accounting. Changes in fair value of the securities are recorded as part of other income on the condensed consolidated statement of operations. Short term investment activity is presented in the investing activities section on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.

 

Short-term investments at March 31, 2022 consisted of mutual funds with a fair value of $175,715,526.

 

Patents

 

Costs related to filing and pursuing patent applications are recorded as general and administrative expense and expensed as incurred since recoverability of such expenditures is uncertain.

 

Leases

 

The Company recognizes its leases with a term of greater than a year on the balance sheet by recording right-of-use assets and lease liabilities. Leases can be classified as either operating leases or finance leases. Operating leases will result in straight-line lease expense, while finance leases will result in front-loaded expense. The Company’s lease consists of an operating lease for office space. The Company does not recognize a lease liability or right-of-use asset on the balance sheet for short-term leases. Instead, the Company recognizes short-term lease payments as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. A short-term lease is defined as a lease that, at the commencement date, has a lease term of 12 months or less and does not include an option to purchase the underlying asset that the lessee is reasonably certain to exercise.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments primarily include cash, short term investments, and accounts payable. Due to the short-term nature of cash and accounts payable the carrying amounts of these assets and liabilities approximate their fair value.

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset, or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price), in an orderly transaction between market participants at the reporting date. A fair value hierarchy has been established for valuation inputs that gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The fair value hierarchy is as follows:

 

  Level 1 Inputs - Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.
   
  Level 2 Inputs - Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These might include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (such as interest rates, volatilities, prepayment speeds, credit risks, etc.) or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by market data by correlation or other means.
   
  Level 3 Inputs - Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (supported by little or no market activity).

 

As required by Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) Topic No. 820 - 10 Fair Value Measurement, financial assets and liabilities are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the valuation of the fair value of assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels.

 

The Company’s short-term investment instruments of $175,715,526 at March 31, 2022 consist of mutual funds, bank deposits and money market funds and are classified using Level 1 inputs within the fair value hierarchy because the value is based on quoted prices in active markets. Unrealized gains and losses are recorded in the condensed consolidated statement of operations under other income. The Company recorded unrealized losses of $1,763,287 and $177,163 included in other income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method. Accordingly, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in the tax rate is recognized in income or expense in the period that the change is effective. Tax benefits are recognized when it is probable that the deduction will be sustained. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset will either expire before the Company is able to realize the benefit, or that future deductibility is uncertain. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had recognized a valuation allowance to the full extent of the Company’s net deferred tax assets since the likelihood of realization of the benefit does not meet the more likely than not threshold.

 

The Company files a U.S. Federal income tax return and various state returns. Uncertain tax positions taken on the Company’s tax returns will be accounted for as liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits. The Company will recognize interest and penalties, if any, related to unrecognized tax benefits in general and administrative expenses in the statements of operations. There were no liabilities recorded for uncertain tax positions at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The open tax years, subject to potential examination by the applicable taxing authority, for the Company are from June 30, 2018 forward.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development costs primarily consist of research contracts for the advancement of product development, salaries and benefits, stock-based compensation, and consultants. The Company expenses all research and development costs in the period incurred. The Company makes an estimate of costs in relation to clinical study contracts. The Company analyzes the progress of studies, including the progress of clinical studies and phases, invoices received and contracted costs when evaluating the adequacy of the amount expensed and the related prepaid asset and accrued liability. 

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company measures the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award. That cost is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award - the requisite service period. The grant-date fair value of employee share options is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model adjusted for the unique characteristics of those instruments.

 

Net Loss per Common Share

 

Basic loss per common share attributable to common stockholders is calculated by dividing the net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period, without consideration for common stock equivalents. Diluted loss per common share attributable to common stockholders is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common share equivalents outstanding for the period determined using the treasury-stock method. Dilutive common stock equivalents are comprised of options and warrants to purchase common stock. For all periods presented, there is no difference in the number of shares used to calculate basic and diluted shares outstanding due to the Company’s net losses in each period.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the potentially dilutive securities that would be anti-dilutive due to the Company’s net loss are not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share attributable to common stockholders. The anti-dilutive securities are as follows (in common stock equivalent shares):

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

In November 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-10, “Government Assistance (Topic 832): Disclosures by Business Entities about Government Assistance”. The amendments in this ASU require annual disclosures to increase the transparency of government assistance received by a business entity including information about the nature of the government transactions, related accounting policy, the line items on the balance sheet and income statement that are affected, amounts applicable to each financial statement line item, and significant terms and conditions of the transactions, including commitments and contingencies. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2022 and the standard did not have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, “Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers”. The amendments in this ASU require that an entity (acquirer) recognize, and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination, including contract assets and contract liabilities arising from revenue contracts with customers, as if it had originated the contracts as of the acquisition date. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2022. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect this standard to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2021 and the standard did not have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). ASU 2021-04 outlines how an entity should account for modifications made to equity-classified written call options, including stock options and warrants to purchase the entity’s own common stock. The guidance in the ASU requires an entity to treat a modification of an equity-classified written call options that does not cause the option to become liability-classified as an exchange of the original option for a new option. This guidance applies whether the modification is structured as an amendment to the terms and conditions of the equity-classified written call option or as termination of the original option and issuance of a new option. The guidance is effective prospectively for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including in an interim period as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2022 and the standard did not have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 5 - STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (continued)

 

Options and Warrants

 

In December 2014, the Board of Directors adopted and the Company’s shareholders approved Relmada’s 2014 Stock Option and Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan”), which allows for the granting of 5,152,942 common stock awards, stock appreciation rights, and incentive and nonqualified stock options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock to designated employees, non-employee directors, and consultants and advisors. In May 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors adopted and shareholders approved Relmada’s 2021 Equity Incentive Plan which allows for the granting of 1,500,000 options or stock awards. These combined plans allow for the granting of up to 6,652,942 options or stock awards. 

 

Stock options are exercisable generally for a period of 10 years from the date of grant and generally vest over four years. As of March 31, 2022, no shares were available for future grants under the Plan. The shareholders will vote at their annual meeting in 2022 on a management proposal to increase the shares available to be issued under the 2021 Plan by 3,900,000 shares; there can be no assurance such amendment will be approved. As of March 31, 2022, options for 3,609,242 shares of common stock had been issued subject to approval by the shareholders of this amendment. If the amendment is not approved, such options will be forfeited.

 

As of March 31, 2022, no stock appreciation rights have been issued.

 

The Company utilizes the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of stock options and warrants. The risk-free interest rate assumptions were based upon the observed interest rates appropriate for the expected term of the equity instruments. The expected dividend yield was assumed to be zero as the Company has not paid any dividends since its inception and does not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future. The expected volatility was based on historical volatility. The Company routinely reviews its calculation of volatility changes in future volatility, the Company’s life cycle, its peer group, and other factors.

 

The Company uses the simplified method for share-based compensation to estimate the expected term for equity awards for share-based compensation in its option-pricing model.

 

On January 1, 2022, 50,000 options were issued to a consultant with an exercise price of $22.53 and a 10-year term, vesting over a 1-year period. The options granted include performance vesting based on the Company’s achievement of performance metrics. The options have an aggregate fair value of approximately $847,583 million, calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Variables used in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model include: (1) discount rate of 1.53% (2) expected life of 5.5 years, (3) expected volatility of 96%, and (4) zero expected dividends. These awards are subject to shareholder approval of the above-described amendment to the 2021 Plan.

 

From January 1, 2022  through March 14, 2022, 110,000 options were issued to various consultants with an exercise price ranging from $18.00 to $21.46 and a 10-year term, vesting over a 4-year period. The options granted include time-based vesting grants. The options have an aggregate fair value of approximately $1.6 million, calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Variables used in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model include: (1) discount rate of 1.532.00% (2) expected life of 6.25 years, (3) expected volatility of 98%, and (4) zero expected dividends. These awards are subject to shareholder approval of the above-described amendment to the 2021 Plan.

 

On March 28, 2022, the Company awarded a total of 15,000 options to an employee with an exercise price of $25.76 and a 10-year term vesting over a 4-year period. The options granted include time-based vesting grants. The options have an aggregate fair value of $307,845 calculated using the Black Scholes option-pricing model. Variables used in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model include: (1) discount rate of 2.55% (2) expected life of 6.25 years, (3) expected volatility of 98%, and (4) zero expected dividends. These awards are subject to shareholder approval of the above-described amendment to the 2021 Plan.

 

At March 31, 2022, the Company has unrecognized stock-based compensation expense of approximately $129.7 million related to unvested stock options over the weighted average remaining service period of 2.72 years.

Business Overview

 

Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. (Relmada or the Company, we or us) (a Nevada corporation), is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of esmethadone (d-methadone, dextromethadone, REL-1017), an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist. Esmethadone is a new chemical entity (NCE) that potentially addresses areas of high unmet medical need in the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases and other disorders.

 

Our lead product candidate, esmethadone, is being developed as a rapidly acting, oral agent for the treatment of depression and other potential indications. On October 15, 2019 we reported top-line data from study REL-1017-202. This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the safety, tolerability and efficacy of two oral doses of REL-1017, 25 mg once a day and 50 mg once a day, as an adjunctive treatment in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), who experienced an inadequate response to 1 to 3 treatments with an antidepressant medication.

 

In the REL-1017-202 study, 62 subjects, with an average age of 49.2 years, with an average Hamilton Depression Rating Scale score of 25.3 and an average Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) score of 34.0 (severe depression), were randomized. Other demographic characteristics were balanced across all arms. After an initial screening period, subjects were randomized to one of three arms: placebo, REL-1017 25 mg or REL-1017 50 mg, in addition to stable background antidepressant therapy. Subjects in the REL-1017 treatment arms received one loading dose of either 75 mg (25 mg arm) or 100 mg (50 mg arm) of REL-1017. Subjects were treated inpatient for 7 days and discharged home at Day 9. They returned for follow-up visits at Day 14 and Day 21. Efficacy was measured on Days 2, 4 and 7 in the dosing period and on Day 14, one week after treatment discontinuation. 61 subjects received all treatment doses and were included in the per-protocol population (PPP) treatment analysis; 57 subjects completed all visits. All 62 randomized subjects were part of the intention-to-treat (ITT) analysis. No differences were observed between the ITT and PPP analyses and results.

Key findings:

 

We observed that subjects in both the REL-1017 25 mg and 50 mg treatment groups experienced statistically significant improvement on all efficacy measures tested as compared to subjects in the placebo group, including: MADRS; the Clinical Global Impression – Severity (CGI-S) scale; the Clinical Global Impression – Improvement (CGI-I) scale; and the Symptoms of Depression Questionnaire (SDQ).

 

Improvements on the MADRS endpoint appeared on Day 4 in both REL-1017 dose groups and continued through Day 7 and Day 14, seven days after treatment discontinuation, with P values< 0.03 and large effect sizes (a measure of quantifying the difference between two groups), ranging from 0.7 to 1.0. Similar findings emerged from the CGI-S and CGI-I scales.

The study also confirmed the tolerability profile of REL-1017, which was observed in the Phase 1 studies. Subjects experienced only mild and moderate adverse events (AEs), and no serious adverse events, without significant differences between placebo and treatment groups. The AEs observed in the Phase 2a clinical study were of the same nature as those observed in the Phase 1 clinical studies of d-Methadone, and there was no evidence of either treatment induced psychotomimetic and dissociative AEs or withdrawal signs and symptoms upon treatment discontinuation.

On December 20, 2020, Relmada announced that the first patient had been enrolled in the first Phase 3 clinical trial (RELIANCE I) for the Company’s lead product candidate, REL-1017, as an adjunctive treatment for MDD.

 

Following discussions with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Relmada’s adjunctive MDD Phase 3 program includes the following key attributes:

 

  The Phase 3 program consists of two sister, two-arm, placebo-controlled clinical trials. Each trial is being conducted in 55 clinical sites in the United States and will include planned enrollment of 364 MDD patients with inadequate response to standard antidepressants in their current depression episode. Patients will add either a 25 mg oral dose of REL-1017 once per day or placebo to their ongoing antidepressant treatment.

 

  The primary endpoint to be evaluated will be the change from baseline on the MADRS score at day-28 for REL-1017 compared to placebo. Success on this endpoint with the collection of sufficient safety data could support the use of REL-1017 for chronic treatment, if approved.
     
  The change from baseline and the 7-day MADRS score will serve as a key secondary endpoint and will provide information on the time to treatment effect.

On April 1, 2021, Relmada announced the initiation of RELIANCE II, the second of two sister pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials (RELIANCE I and RELIANCE II) for the Company’s lead product candidate, REL-1017, as an adjunctive treatment for MDD. Patients who complete RELIANCE I and RELIANCE II are eligible to rollover into the long-term, open-label study, which also includes subjects who had not previously participated in a REL-1017 clinical trial.

 

On October 4, 2021, Relmada announced RELIANCE III, the ongoing monotherapy trial for the Company’s lead product candidate, REL-1017, which aims to randomize 364 patients and it is expected to be completed in mid-2022.

 

In addition, in order to support potential regulatory submissions seeking approval for REL-1017 as monotherapy and adjunctive treatment, the FDA confirmed that, based on what is known at this time, Relmada will not be required to conduct a two-year carcinogenicity study of REL-1017, as sufficient clinical data have been generated to date. The FDA also confirmed that Relmada does not need to conduct a thorough QT analysis (TQT) cardiac study in humans to support cardiac safety in potential regulatory submissions for REL-1017, as the data provided so far and the data generated by the Phase 3 program will be adequate to evaluate the cardiac safety profile of REL-1017.

 

Human Abuse Potential (HAP) Study top-line results - Oxycodone:

 

On July 27, 2021, we announced top-line results that showed that all three doses of REL-1017 (25 mg, 75 mg and 150 mg, the therapeutic, supratherapeutic and maximum tolerated doses, respectively) tested in recreational opioid users, demonstrated a highly statistically significant difference vs. the active control drug, oxycodone 40 mg. The study’s primary endpoint was a measure of “likability” with the subjects rating the maximum effect (or Emax) for Drug Liking “at the moment”, using a 1=100 bipolar rating scale (known as a visual analog scale or VAS), with 100 as the highest likability, 50 as neutral (placebo-like), and 0 the highest dislike. In summary, all tested doses of REL-1017, including the maximum tolerated dose, showed a highly statistically significant difference in abuse potential versus oxycodone with p-values less than 0.001.

 

Results are detailed in the table below:

 

   Placebo   REL-1017
25 mg
   REL-1017
75 mg
   REL-1017
150 mg
   Oxycodone
40 mg
 
Mean Emax for Drug Liking   52.7    54.2    58.7    64.9    83.2 
P-value for Difference vs. oxycodone 40 mg   <0.001    <0.001    <0.001    <0.001    - 
P-value for REL-1017 vs. Placebo   -    <0.001    <0.001    <0.05    - 

 

These statistically significant data clearly demonstrate a very meaningful difference between REL-1017 and oxycodone at all three tested doses. These results, along with previously published literature, support the lack of opioid effects of REL-1017. 

 

Human Abuse Potential (HAP) Study top-line results - Ketamine:

 

On February 23, 2022, we announced top-line results that showed that all three doses of REL-1017 (25 mg, 75 mg, and 150 mg, the therapeutic, supratherapeutic and maximum tolerated doses, respectively) tested in recreational drug users, demonstrated a substantial (30+ points) and statistically significant difference vs. the active control drug, intravenous ketamine 0.5 mg/kg over 40 minutes, and were statistically equivalent to placebo. The study’s primary endpoint was a measure of “likability” with the subjects rating the maximum effect (or Emax) for Drug Liking “at this moment”, using a 1-100 bipolar rating scale (known as a visual analog scale or VAS), with 100 as the highest likability, 50 as neutral (placebo-like), and 0 the highest dislike. Consistent results are seen for the secondary endpoints.

 

Results of the primary endpoint are summarized in the table below:

 

    Placebo     REL-1017
25 mg
    REL-1017
75 mg
    REL-1017
150 mg
    Ketamine
0.5 mg/kg
 
Mean Emax for Drug Liking     50.9       51.4       54.9       59.2       90.0  
P-value for Difference vs. ketamine 0.5mg/Kg over 40 minutes     <0.05       <0.05       <0.05       <0.05       -  
P-value for REL-1017 vs. placebo     -       <0.05       <0.05       <0.05       -  

 

These statistically significant data clearly demonstrate a very meaningful difference between REL-1017 and ketamine at all three tested doses. The REL-1017 results were also statistically equivalent to placebo.

 

Key Upcoming Anticipated Milestones

 

We expect multiple key milestones over the next 12-18 months. These include: 

 

  Results of RELIANCE III monotherapy MDD rial in mid-2022.

 

  Results of RELIANCE I and RELIANCE II adjunctive MDD trials in the second half of 2022.

 

  Results of RELIANCE – OLS (Long-term, Open-label) study in MDD in the second half of 2022.

Our Development Program

 

Esmethadone (d-Methadone, dextromethadone, REL-1017) as a treatment for MDD

 

Background

 

In 2014, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimated that 15.7 million adults aged 18 or older in the United States had at least one major depressive episode in the past year. According to data from nationally representative surveys supported by NIMH, only about half of Americans diagnosed with major depression in a given year receive treatment. Of those receiving treatment with as many as four different standard antidepressants, 33% of drug-treated depression patients do not achieve adequate therapeutic benefits according to the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) trial published in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

 

In addition to the high failure rate, only one of the marketed products for depression, esketamine (marketed by Johnson and Johnson as Spravato), an in-clinic nasal spray treatment can demonstrate rapid antidepressant effects, while the other currently approved products can take two to eight weeks to show activity. The urgent need for improved, faster acting antidepressant treatments is underscored by the fact that severe depression can be life-threatening, due to heightened risk of suicide.

 

Esmethadone Overview and Mechanism of Action

 

Esmethadone’s mechanism of action, as a low affinity, non-competitive NMDA channel blocker or antagonist, is fundamentally differentiated from most currently FDA-approved antidepressants, as well as all atypical antipsychotics used adjunctively with standard, FDA-approved antidepressants. Working through the same brain mechanisms as ketamine and esketamine but potentially lacking their adverse side effects, esmethadone is being developed as a rapidly acting, oral agent for the treatment of depression and potentially other CNS conditions.

 

In chemistry an enantiomer, also known as an optical isomer, is one of two stereoisomers that are mirror images of each other that are non-superimposable (not identical), much as one’s left and right hands are the same except for being reversed along one axis. A racemic compound, or racemate, is one that has equal amounts of left- and right-handed enantiomers of a chiral molecule. For racemic drugs, often only one of a drug’s enantiomers is responsible for the desired physiologic effects, while the other enantiomer is less active or inactive.

 

As a single isomer of racemic methadone, esmethadone has been shown to possess NMDA antagonist properties with virtually no traditional opioid or ketamine-like adverse events at the expected therapeutic doses. In contrast, racemic methadone is associated with common opioid side effects that include anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, sleep problems (insomnia), nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, drowsiness, and others. It has been shown that the left (levo) isomer, l-methadone, is largely responsible for methadone’s opioid activity, while the right (dextro) isomer, esmethadone, at the currently therapeutic doses used in development is virtually inactive as an opioid while maintaining affinity for the NMDA receptor.

 

NMDA receptors are present in many parts of the CNS and play important roles in regulating neuronal activity and promoting synaptic plasticity in brain areas important for cognitive functions such as executive function, learning and memory. Based on these premises, esmethadone could show benefits in several different CNS indications.

 

Esmethadone (d-methadone, dextromethadone, REL-1017) in other indications

 

In addition to developing esmethadone as an adjunctive treatment of MDD, we are evaluating the utility of esmethadone as a front line monotherapy treatment for MDD.

 

Additionally, other indications that Relmada may explore in the future, include, restless leg syndrome and other glutamatergic system activation related diseases.

Our Corporate History and Background

 

We are a clinical-stage, publicly traded biotechnology company developing NCEs and novel versions of drug products that potentially address areas of high unmet medical need in the treatment of depression and other CNS diseases.

 

Currently, none of our product candidates have been approved for sale in the United States or elsewhere. We have no commercial products nor do we have a sales or marketing infrastructure. In order to market and sell our products we must conduct clinical trials on patients and obtain regulatory approvals from appropriate regulatory agencies, like the FDA in the United States, and similar organizations elsewhere in the world.

 

We have not generated revenues and do not anticipate generating revenues for the foreseeable future. We had net loss of $39,745,783 for the three months ended March 31, 2022. At March 31, 2022, we have an accumulated deficit of $344,812,895.

 

Business Strategy

 

Our strategy is to leverage our considerable industry experience, understanding of CNS markets and development expertise to identify, develop and commercialize product candidates with significant market potential that can fulfill unmet medical needs in the treatment of CNS diseases. We have assembled a management team along with both scientific, including recognized experts in the fields of depression, and business advisors with significant industry and regulatory experience to lead and execute the development and commercialization of esmethadone.

 

We plan to further develop esmethadone as our priority program. As the drug esmethadone is an NCE, the regulatory pathway required to support a new drug application (NDA) submission involves a full clinical development program. We plan to continue to generate intellectual property (IP) that will further protect our products from competition. We will also continue to prioritize our product development activities after taking into account the resources we have available, market dynamics and potential for adding value.

 

Market Opportunity

 

We believe that the market for addressing areas of high unmet medical need in the treatment of CNS diseases will continue to be large for the foreseeable future and that it will represent a sizable revenue opportunity for us. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that CNS diseases affect nearly 2 billion people globally, making up approximately 40% of total disease burden (based on disability adjusted life years), compared with 13% for cancer and 12% for cardiovascular disease.

 

The depression treatment market is segmented on the basis of antidepressants drugs, devices, and therapies. Antidepressants are the largest and most popular market segment. The antidepressants segment consists of large pharmaceutical and generic companies, such as Eli Lilly, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Allergan, Sage Therapeutics and Johnson & Johnson. Some of the notable drugs produced by these companies are Cymbalta® (Eli Lilly), Effexor® (Pfizer), Pristiq® (Pfizer), Zulresso® (Sage) and Spravato® (Johnson & Johnson).

 

Intellectual Property Portfolio and Market Exclusivity

 

We have over 50 issued patents and pending patent applications related to REL-1017 for multiple uses, including psychological and neurological conditions. We have also secured an Orphan Drug Designation from the FDA for d-methadone for “the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia”, which, upon NDA approval, carries 7-year FDA Orphan Drug marketing exclusivity. In the European Union, some of our actual and prospective products may be eligible up to 10 years of market exclusivity, which includes 8 years data exclusivity and 2 years market exclusivity. In addition to any granted patents, REL-1017 will be eligible for market exclusivity to run concurrently with the term of the patent for 5 years in the U.S. (Hatch Waxman Act) plus additional 6 months of pediatric exclusivity and up to 10 years of exclusivity in the European Union. We believe an extensive intellectual property estate of US and foreign patents and applications, once approved, will protect our technology and products.

Key Strengths

 

We believe that the key elements for our market success include:

 

  Compelling lead product opportunity, REL-1017 currently in Phase 3 trials for the adjunctive and monotherapy treatment of MDD.
     
  Robust and highly statistically significant, efficacy seen with esmethadone in a randomized Phase 2 trial, the primary endpoint at 7 days, with onset of action seen at 4 days, and the effect carrying through to 14 days (7 days post-treatment).
     
  Completed Phase 1 safety studies of esmethadone and strong clinical activity signal in depression established in three independent animal models in preclinical studies.
     
  Potential in additional multiple indications in underserved markets with large patient population in other affective disorders and cognitive disorders.
     
  Scientific support of leading experts: Our scientific advisors include clinicians and scientists who are affiliated with a number of highly regarded medical institutions such as Harvard, Cornell, Yale, and University of Pennsylvania.
     
  Substantial IP portfolio and market protection: approved and filed patent applications provide coverage beyond 2033.

The net loss for the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was approximately $39,745,800 and $22,215,200, respectively. The Company had loss per share, basic and diluted of $1.40 and $1.34 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

Liquidity

 

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company incurred negative operating cash flows of $19,429,743 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and has an accumulated deficit of $344,812,895 from inception through March 31, 2022.

 

Relmada has funded its past operations through equity raises and in the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company raised net proceeds of $29,583,542 from the sale of common stock through our ATM equity offering, $64,800 through the exercise of options and $300,006 through the exercise of warrants.

 

Subsequent to quarter end, in April 2022, we entered into a new Open Market Sale Agreement with Jefferies, as sales agent, pursuant to which we may offer and sell, from time to time, through Jefferies, shares of our common stock, having an aggregate offering price of up to $100,000,000. We are not obligated to sell any shares under the agreement. On April 8, 2022, we raised net proceeds of $13,284,548 from the sale of common stock through this ATM facility.

 

Management believes that the Company’s existing cash and cash equivalents will enable it to fund operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements for at least 12 months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. Beyond that point management will evaluate the size and scope of any subsequent trials that will affect the timing of additional financings through public or private sales of equity or debt securities or from bank or other loans or through strategic collaboration and/or licensing agreements. Any such expenditures related to any subsequent clinical trials will not be incurred until such additional financing is raised. Further, additional financing related to subsequent clinical trials does not affect the Company’s conclusion that based on the cash on hand and the budgeted cash flow requirements, the Company has sufficient funds to maintain operations for at least 12 months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

The following table sets forth selected cash flow information for the periods indicated below:

 

   Three Months Ended
March 31,
2022
   Three Months Ended

2021
 
Cash used in operating activities  $(19,429,743)  $(16,085,475)
Cash provided by (used in) investing activities   (10,027,668)   15,465,841 
Cash provided by financing activities   29,948,348    1,928,279 
Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents  $490,937    1,308,645 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used in operating activities was $19,429,743 primarily due to the net loss of $39,745,783, a decrease in accounts payable of $522,353, and an increase in accrued expenses of $870,905, offset by non-cash stock compensation charges of $11,930,681, unrealized losses of $1,763,287, realized losses of $15,022, a decrease in prepaid expenses of $6,237,575, and a decrease in short-term lease payment receivable of $20,923.

 

24

 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was $16,085,475 primarily due to the net loss of $22,215,181, prepaid expense of $87,505, and accounts payable of $263,679, offset by non-cash stock compensation charges of $5,851,284, unrealized loss of $177,163, realized loss of $52,789 and accrued expenses of $379,601.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used by investing activities was $10,027,668 related to the purchase of $25,915,957 and the sale of $15,888,289 short-term investments.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in investing activities was $15,465,841 related to the purchase of $20,663,535 and the sale of $36,129,376 short-term investments.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $29,948,348 due to sales of common stock of $29,583,542, proceeds from warrants exercised for common stock of $300,006, and proceeds from options exercised for common stock of $64,800.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $1,928,279 due proceeds from options exercised for common stock of $467,773 and proceeds from options exercised for common stock of $1,460,506.

 

Effects of Inflation

 

Our assets are primarily monetary, consisting of cash and cash equivalents. Because of their liquidity, these assets are not directly affected by inflation. Because we intend to retain and continue to use our equipment, we believe that the incremental inflation related to replacement costs of such items will not materially affect our operations. However, the rate of inflation affects our expenses, such as those for employee compensation and contract services, which could increase our level of expenses and the rate at which we use our resources.

 

Commitments and Contingencies

 

Please refer to Note 9 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 under the heading Commitments and Contingencies. To our knowledge there have been no material changes to the risk factors that were previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

A critical accounting policy is one that is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results of operations and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and all applicable U.S. GAAP accounting standards effective as of March 31, 2022 have been taken into consideration in preparing the unaudited consolidated financial statements. The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be 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. On a continual basis, management reviews its estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience, and reasonable assumptions. After such reviews, and if deemed appropriate, managements estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions under different and/or future circumstances. Management considers an accounting estimate to be critical if:

 

  it requires assumptions to be made that were uncertain at the time the estimate was made; and

 

  changes in the estimate, or the use of different estimating methods that could have been selected, could have a material impact on results of operations or financial condition.

 

We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis and none of the Company’s estimates and assumptions used within the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements involve a high level of estimation uncertainty. For additional discussion regarding the application of the significant accounting policies, see Note 2 to the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

There have been no material changes to our exposures to market risks as disclosed under the heading “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risks” in the annual MD&A contained in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. 

  

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, 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) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based upon our evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective as of March 31, 2022, in ensuring that material information that we are required to disclose in reports that 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 rules and forms.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during the three months ended March 31, 2022 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, the Company may become involved in lawsuits and other legal proceedings that arise in the course of business. Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and it is not possible to predict the outcome of litigation with total confidence. The Company is currently not aware of any legal proceedings or potential claims against it whose outcome would be likely, individually or in the aggregate, to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, operating results, or cash flows.

  

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Effects of COVID-19

 

The pandemic caused by an outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted, and is likely to continue to result, in significant national and global economic disruption and may adversely affect our business. Based on the Company’s current assessment, the Company does not expect any material impact on its long-term development timeline and its liquidity due to the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, the Company is actively monitoring this situation and the possible effects on its financial condition, liquidity, operations, suppliers, industry, and workforce.

 

There have been no material changes to the risk factors under Part I, Item 1A of our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which include more detailed risk factors related to COVID-19.
