"2016 was a transformative year for Eleven. Following our acquisition of
Fourth Quarter and Recent Business Highlights and Anticipated Upcoming Milestones:
Vicinium™: Vicinium is a single protein
anti-epithelial cell adhesion molecule (anti-EpCAM) protein fused with Pseudomonas
Exotoxin A (ETA) designed to specifically target and deliver a
potent anti-cancer payload directly into tumor cells. Vicinium is
currently in a Phase 3 registration clinical trial for the treatment of
high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) in subjects who
have previously received two courses of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG)
and whose disease is now BCG-unresponsive. Eleven intends to enroll 134
subjects in the trial, including 77 subjects with carcinoma in situ (CIS),
at over 65 centers in
- Complete enrollment for Phase 3 registration clinical trial expected in second half of 2017
- Topline data from Phase 3 registration clinical trial expected in 2018
Proxinium™: Proxinium is a single protein anti-EpCAM antibody fragment fused with ETA for the treatment of late-stage squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Phase 2 data showed observable reductions in target tumor size in 71% of evaluable subjects, as well as tumor growth control in 80% of evaluable subjects presenting with multiple tumors. By generating a host anti-tumor immune response, Proxinium has also demonstrated the potential to improve the efficacy of checkpoint inhibitors.
Proxinium has received Orphan Drug Designation from the
- Initiation of Phase 1/2a clinical trial evaluating Proxinium in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor expected in the second half of 2017
Systemically-administered TPT Pipeline: Eleven's initial systemically-administered TPTs leverage a highly potent, de-immunized, plant toxin, deBouganin. DeBouganin has picomolar killing, has demonstrated multi-drug resistance avoidance, and may potentially induce an effect against cancer stem cells. Its safety profile based upon a prior clinical trial also provides a broad therapeutic window, which suggests deBouganin-based therapies may be effective against a wide spectrum of different cancers.
- Investigational New Drug Application (IND) submission planned for the first quarter of 2018.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results:
Cash Position: Cash and cash equivalents were
$25.3 millionas of December 31, 2016, compared to $36.1 millionas of December 31, 2015, a decrease of $10.8 million, which was primarily driven by the repayment of the note payable partially offset by cash provided by operations.
Revenue: Revenue was
$0.8 millionfor the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $0.6 millionfor the same period in 2015. Revenue was $30.0 millionfor the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $1.0 millionfor the same period in 2015. This increase was related to revenue recognized from the License Agreement with Roche, which was partially offset by reduced fees under the former collaboration agreement with ThromboGenics N.V.
R&D Expenses: Research and development expenses were
$2.8 millionfor the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $8.1 millionfor the same period in 2015. The decrease was due primarily to a decrease of isunakinra-related development expenses, for which development activities are no longer ongoing, as well as decreases in EBI-031 related development expenses due to the License Agreement with Roche. These decreases were partially offset by increases in Vicinium-related development expenses. Research and development expenses were $13.5 millionfor the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $26.3 millionfor the same period in 2015.
G&A Expenses: General and administrative expenses were
$2.8 millionfor the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $2.3 millionfor the same period in 2015. This increase was due primarily to accounting and legal fees related to the integration of Viventia. General and administrative expenses were $14.7 millionfor the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $9.9 millionfor the same period in 2015.
Net Income (Loss): Net loss was
$3.5 million, or $0.15per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to net loss of $10.3 million, or $0.53per share, for the same period in 2015. Net income was $1.9 million, or $0.09per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, compared to net loss of $33.5 million, or $1.76per share, for the same period in 2015.
- Financial Guidance: Based on current operating plans, Eleven expects to have cash to fund research and development programs and operations into early 2018.
