Evaxion Reinforces Milestone Timeline and Provides Shareholder Update

Share

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, July 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evaxion Biotech A/S (NASDAQ: EVAX) (“Evaxion” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage TechBio company specializing in developing AI-Immunology™ powered vaccines, today issued the following letter to shareholders.

Dear Fellow Shareholders of Evaxion,

The first half of 2024 has been off to a very productive start to the year for Evaxion. We have launched our refined strategy, and we are well positioned for value realization via our three-pronged business model focusing on vaccine target discovery collaborations using our core AI-Immunology™ platform (Targets), advancing our pipeline of vaccine candidates (Pipeline) and using our core data and predictive capabilities to develop responder models (Responders). Value realization is being pursued via a multi-partner approach.

In early 2024, we bolstered our cash at hand via completion of a USD 15 million public offering. We were pleased to see MSD GHI (a corporate venture capital arm of Merck & Co., Inc., Rahway, NJ, USA) also participate in this offering, making them our largest shareholder.

Within the Target part of our strategy, in February we announced the successful completion of the initial phases of the ongoing vaccine collaboration with MSD (tradename of Merck & Co., Inc., Rahway, NJ, USA). The collaboration is on track for completion of the vaccine discovery and early preclinical development part during the second half of the year, and we are excited to be developing a novel vaccine together with one of the world's leading companies in vaccine development and commercialization.

Our R&D Day in March, with a focus on our AI-Immunology™ platform, attracted a lot of attention and we are thrilled to see the interest from potential partners in gaining a deeper understanding of the unique opportunities for discovering, designing, and developing novel vaccines using AI-Immunology™ in partnership with Evaxion.

Within the Pipeline part of our strategy, a key focus for Evaxion during 2024 has been the ongoing personalized EVX-01 Phase 2 trial in metastatic melanoma. We were thrilled to see the first patient completing dosing with EVX-01 in April. This was followed by a presentation of exciting immune data at the ASCO Annual Meeting in early June, showing that the EVX-01 vaccine induced specific and targeted immune responses, with 71% of the administered neoantigens eliciting a T-cell response. This compares favorably to what other companies have shown. We are looking very much forward to the one-year readout from the Phase 2 trial, which is still expected in the third quarter of this year.

Also, within the Pipeline part of our strategy, we are continuing the work on a precision vaccine concept based on a novel source of cancer vaccine targets. This novel precision vaccine concept holds potential to broaden the use of cancer vaccines. We are on track for preclinical Proof-of-Concept in the second half of the year.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that our ambition of generating business development income in 2024 corresponding to our yearly operational cash burn of USD 14 million remains in place. While there will always be uncertainty as to whether business development discussions materialize in actual agreements and the timing of such agreements, we are encouraged by the strong interest we are seeing from potential partners in both our pipeline assets and our AI-Immunology™ platform. We are fully focused on advancing these business development discussions.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a great summer, and we look forward to continuing strong execution on our three-pronged business model during the second half of 2024. We remain committed to saving and improving lives with AI-Immunology™.

On behalf of the Evaxion team, I would like to thank all our shareholders for the continued support.

Best regards,
Christian Kanstrup, CEO
