    TÜBINGEN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2021 - CureVac N.V. (NASDAQ:CVAC), a global biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid ("mRNA"), today announced financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 and provided a business update.

    "As the global fight against SARS-CoV-2 continues, we are focused on creating a new generation of vaccines while building CureVac's position as a leading player in the mRNA space," said Franz-Werner Haas, Chief Executive Officer of CureVac. "The strategic decision to withdraw our first-generation COVID-19 candidate, CVnCoV, enables us to accelerate our second-generation program in partnership with GSK. Together, we are advancing our technology platform to deliver a suite of innovative mRNA vaccines in infectious diseases, including an endemic COVID-19 vaccine with the goal to address evolving market demands as the world transitions from the current pandemic to an endemic COVID-19 environment. Learnings from the first-generation program are not only expected to support the second-generation program but will also be leveraged for our programs in oncology and protein therapies."

    "Following the withdrawal of CVnCoV, we now aim to refocus our existing contractual commitments on our second-generation vaccine program," said Pierre Kemula, Chief Financial Officer of CureVac. "Over the last 18 months, we aimed to balance our significant COVID-19 financial exposure with upfront payments such as in the European APA as well as revenues from collaborations and grants. Looking forward, we will continue to run our operations with financial discipline."

    Selected Business Updates

    Prophylactic Vaccines

    Shifting COVID-19 Focus to Second-Generation mRNA Program, Jointly Developed with GSK

    On October 12, 2021, CureVac announced the strategic decision to focus its COVID-19 vaccine program on the development of second-generation mRNA vaccine candidates in collaboration with GSK and to withdraw its first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, from the approval process with the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

    Based on communication from the EMA in October 2021, CureVac estimated that the earliest possible approval of CVnCoV would come in the second quarter of 2022. By this time, CureVac and GSK expect candidates from the second-generation vaccine program to be progressing through clinical development. The decision is aligned with the evolving dynamics of the pandemic response toward greater need for differentiated vaccines with the gradual transition from an acute pandemic to an endemic SARS-CoV2 environment.

    Current clinical studies with CVnCoV, including a Phase 1 study in Germany, a Phase 2a study in Peru and Panama, a Phase 2b/3 (HERALD) study in Europe and Latin America, and a Phase 3 study in participants with comorbidities in Belgium, continue with the scheduled safety follow-up times for all trial participants as per the respective trial protocols.

    As a direct consequence of the withdrawal of CVnCoV, the existing Advanced Purchase Agreement with the European Commission, which was predicated on employing CVnCoV to address the acute pandemic need, will cease. CureVac remains in contact with the European Commission and is supportive of its public health efforts.

    CureVac remains committed to the long-term fight against COVID-19 and aims to leverage CVnCoV learnings and infrastructure to be at the forefront of delivering advanced second-generation vaccines together with GSK. These are expected to provide more flexible protection against emerging COVID-19 variants and to offer new mRNA approaches to other infectious disease vaccines such as flu, as well as potential combination vaccines against different viruses. Second-generation clinical development is expected to start within the next few months.

    CV2CoV - First Representative of Second-Generation COVID-19 Vaccine Program

    CV2CoV is the first representative of the second-generation COVID-19 vaccine program, featuring a new mRNA backbone, jointly developed with GSK. The optimized mRNA backbone targets improved intracellular mRNA translation for increased and extended protein expression, resulting in earlier and stronger immune responses compared to the first-generation candidate, CVnCoV.

    Nature Publication of Extended Data from Preclinical Study of CV2CoV in Non-Human Primates

    On November 18, 2021, CureVac published data in the journal Nature of a preclinical study conducted in collaboration with Dan Barouch, MD, PhD, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, investigating immune responses as well as the protective efficacy of CV2CoV and the first-generation candidate, CVnCoV, against SARS-CoV-2 challenge in cynomolgus macaques. The study was made available via the bioRxiv preprint server in August 2021 .

    The newly published data features a direct comparison of CV2CoV with the licensed mRNA vaccine, Comirnaty(R) (Pfizer/BioNTech). Neutralizing antibody levels measured following full vaccination of animals with either 12µg of CV2CoV or a 30µg standard dose of Comirnaty(R) were shown to be highly comparable.

    The data confirm how targeted optimizations of a non-chemically modified mRNA can significantly improve immune responses in a preclinical model, providing substantiated support for the unmodified mRNA technology approach. This applies not only to the development of advanced COVID-19 vaccines but to the mRNA technology field as a whole.

    Oncology

    CV8102 - Cancer Immuno-Modulator in Solid Tumors

    CureVac's lead oncology candidate, CV8102, is being assessed in a fully recruited Phase 1 dose-escalation study evaluating its tolerability and activity as a single agent and in combination with systemic anti-PD-1 antibodies. An expansion part of the Phase 1 study, announced in February 2021, aims to confirm the safety, tolerability and efficacy of CV8102 at a preferred 600μg dose in patients with advanced melanoma. In October 2021, the expansion part of the study was fully recruited with 10 patients in the single-agent cohort and 30 patients in the combination cohort.

    On September 16, 2021, at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) conference, CureVac presented preliminary results from the completed dose escalation part of the study in 33 patients in the single-agent cohort and 25 in the combination cohort. As of June 21, 2021, in the single-agent dose-escalation cohort, one patient with a complete response and two patients with a partial response were observed. In addition, 12 patients experienced stabilization of disease. In the PD-1 combination dose-escalation cohort, one PD-1 refractory melanoma patient experienced a partial response while three patients experienced stabilization of disease.

    On November 10, 2021, at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) conference, CureVac further extended the ESMO update with an extensive analysis of immune cell activation to better understand the mobilization of the immune system against CV8102-injected as well as non-injected tumors. The data showed efficient stimulation of the immune system characterized by the induction of interferon alpha and interferon gamma signaling pathways. Serial tumor biopsies from individual patients demonstrated increased infiltration of tumor-fighting T cells in the microenvironment of injected as well as non-injected tumors. Both observations support the hypothesis that local injection of the RNA immuno-modulator into a single tumor lesion is able to induce a systemic response leading to immune attack against both injected and non-injected tumors. A data update for the expansion part of the study is expected in the second half of 2022.

    Molecular Therapies

    mRNA Therapeutic in Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis

    A publication in the peer-reviewed Journal of Hepatology announced by CureVac on August 30, 2021, provides the first preclinical data demonstrating the therapeutic applicability of mRNA-encoded HNF4A (hepatocyte nuclear factor 4 alpha) transcription factor in the treatment of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. The study was conducted in collaboration with experts of the renowned REBIRTH-Research Center for Translational Regenerative Medicine and Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endocrinology at the Hannover Medical School, Hannover (Germany) and applied well-established preclinical liver disease models.

    HNF4A is an important regulator and key factor in liver metabolism, which has been shown to gradually decrease with disease progression. In this study, mouse models of the disease were treated with mRNA encoding HNF4A. The treatment was able to restore HNF4A levels and thereby significantly reduce liver injury in treated animals.

    Liver fibrosis and cirrhosis contribute to millions of deaths annually and represent a major health care burden worldwide. However, there are currently no approved drugs that robustly inhibit liver fibrosis. The results of the study provide the first direct preclinical evidence that mRNA therapeutics have the potential to serve as treatment options for fibrosis.

    Manufacturing

    In the context of a reduced short-term peak demand for vaccines following the first wave of pandemic vaccination efforts, CureVac announced on September 14, 2021 its strategic decision to streamline the footprint of the European manufacturing network for its mRNA product pipeline, first announced in November 2020. As a result, contracts with two manufacturing partners were terminated.

    To prepare for the more differentiated demand of second-generation vaccines in line with the gradual transition from an acute pandemic to an endemic COVID-19 environment going into 2022, CureVac has initiated the switch of manufacturing processes from its discontinued first-generation vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, to manufacturing processes for clinical material of second-generation constructs at the European network facilities as well as its in-house manufacturing plant GMPIII.

    This includes the implementation of processes for flexible adaption to new variant-specific constructs as well as processes for the production of modified mRNA constructs, which will be explored as part of the second-generation development program conducted in collaboration with GSK. Clinical trial material for CV2CoV, the first representative of the broad second-generation program, has already been produced in CureVac's small-scale in-house plants, GMP I and II.

    Financial Update for the Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2021

    Financial Impact of the EU APA Termination

    Last year, on November 30, 2020, CureVac entered into an Advanced Purchase Agreement (APA) with the European Commission (EC), which was acting on behalf and in the name of all Member States of the European Union to deliver 225 million doses of CVnCoV. In order to support our accelerated efforts to develop a safe and effective vaccine, the EC structured the APA to share the financial risk with CureVac and to support the development of CureVac's operations in the form of an upfront payment of €450 million. Upon notification of the EC of the withdrawal of CureVac's regulatory approval application for CVnCoV in October 2021, the APA automatically terminated. According to the EU APA, in such case of termination, CureVac must return only the unspent amount of the prepayment. CureVac is in the process of submitting to the EC a report of qualified expenditures incurred or committed to using the upfront payment and do not expect that it will be required to return any portion of it.

    The value of certain assets, semi-finished and finished goods that will have no future use will be assessed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

    CureVac is currently coordinating with the EC to evaluate whether the EC will exercise its option to recover some raw materials and/or primary components paid for with the upfront as allowed for under the APA.

    Cash Position

    Cash and cash equivalents decreased to €1,061.0 million as of September 30, 2021, from €1,322.6 million as of December 31, 2020. In the first nine months of 2021, cash used in operations was mainly for the advancement of all R&D activities for CVnCoV, our first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which we withdrew from the regulatory approval process in October 2021.

    Cash inflows were mainly provided by the raising of €404 million in net proceeds in a follow-on public offering in the first quarter of the year, an upfront payment of €75 million received in May 2021 related to our collaboration with GSK on our second-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, CV2CoV, and €38.3 million received from our German Federal Ministry of Education and research (BMBF) grant.

    Revenues

    Revenues amounted to €29.3 million and €61.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, representing an increase of €24.1 million and €19.0 million, or 463% and 44%, from €5.2 million and €42.8 million for the same periods in 2020.

    The increases were mainly driven by revenues from our collaborations with GSK; in July 2020, GSK and CureVac signed a strategic collaboration agreement for the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of mRNA-based vaccines and monoclonal antibodies targeting infectious disease pathogens. In April 2021, GSK and CureVac signed the COVID Collaboration and License Agreement for a second-generation COVID-19 vaccine program. In total, for both programs, revenues of €49.6 million were recognized in the first nine months of 2021. In addition, in June 2021, Boehringer Ingelheim informed CureVac of its intention to terminate the collaboration agreement for BI1361849. The termination became effective on November 17, 2021. As a result of the termination, the remaining contract liability, related to the upfront payment, is now being recognized over a shorter period through the termination date. For the first nine months of 2021, €10.0 million, compared to €1.4 million in the same period of 2020, was recognized as revenue from this BI collaboration. These increases were partly offset by a €33.1 million one-time effect in the second quarter of 2020, as a result of the termination of our collaboration with Eli Lilly.

    Operating Result

    Operating loss amounted to €143.1 million and €406.7 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, representing an increase of €106.4 million and €343.5 million, respectively, from €36.7 million and €63.2 million for the same periods in 2020. The main driver of the increase in operating loss was higher research and development costs for CVnCoV, our first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate. These R&D costs consist primarily of costs related to clinical research organizations and to personnel involved in the development of CVnCoV. We also recognized increased cost of sales mainly due to activities for production processes for CVnCoV. The increase of cost of sales was also driven by recognition of expenses related to ineffective set-up activities and settlement costs related to the termination of several CMO contracts. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to consulting services for product launch readiness and personnel-related costs from an increased headcount. This increase in expenses was partially offset by a significant increase in other operating income driven by our grant from the BMBF for the development and production of our first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate.

    Financial Result (Finance Income and Expenses)

    Financial result for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 were a loss, on a net basis, of €0.4 million and €1.2 million, respectively, representing a decrease of €0.4 million and an increase of €8.2 million, from €0.0 million and a loss of €9.4 million for the same periods in 2020. Financial result for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, was mainly driven by negative interest on cash, held in liquid funds to support the development and manufacturing activities of CVnCoV and CV2CoV. Negative interest on cash was almost fully offset by foreign exchange gains. The financial result for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, was mainly driven by interest recognized on convertible loans, which were fully repaid in August 2020.

    Pre-Tax Loss

    Pre-tax losses were €143.5 million and €407.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, compared to €36.7 million and €72.6 million in the same respective periods of 2020.

The newly published data features a direct comparison of CV2CoV with the licensed mRNA vaccine, Comirnaty(R) (Pfizer/BioNTech). Neutralizing antibody levels measured following full vaccination of animals with either 12µg of CV2CoV or a 30µg standard dose of Comirnaty(R) were shown to be highly comparable.

    The data confirm how targeted optimizations of a non-chemically modified mRNA can significantly improve immune responses in a preclinical model, providing substantiated support for the unmodified mRNA technology approach. This applies not only to the development of COVID-19 vaccines but to the mRNA technology field as a whole.

    The study, conducted in collaboration with Dan Barouch, MD, PhD, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, investigated immune responses as well as the protective efficacy of CV2CoV and first-generation candidate, CVnCoV, against SARS-CoV-2 challenge in cynomolgus macaques. It was made available via the bioRxiv preprint server in August 2021. For additional details, please refer to the previously issued press release .

    About the Study

    Within the study, CV2CoV and CVnCoV were tested in cynomolgus macaques immunized with a 12µg dose of the respective candidate on day 0 and day 28. For comparison with Comirnaty(R), animals were vaccinated twice, on day 0 and day 21, with 30µg of the licensed vaccine and antibody titers were measured at peak immunity at week 5. Within the comparison of CV2CoV with CVnCoV, CV2CoV consistently showed better activation of innate and adaptive immune responses, resulting in earlier response onset, higher antibody titers and stronger memory B and T cell activation. Higher antibody neutralizing capacity was observed with CV2CoV across a range of relevant variants, including the Delta variant. During challenge with the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, animals vaccinated with CV2CoV were found to be better protected than animals vaccinated with CVnCoV based on effective clearance of the virus in the lungs and nasal passages.

    About CV2CoV

    CV2CoV is CureVac's first candidate based on the advanced second-generation mRNA backbone from the broad second-generation program currently developed in collaboration with GSK. The vaccine candidate, presently at a preclinical development stage, is a non-chemically modified mRNA, encoding the prefusion stabilized full-length spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and formulated within Lipid Nanoparticles (LNPs). CV2CoV was engineered with specifically optimized non-coding regions to exhibit improved mRNA translation for increased and extended protein expression compared the first-generation mRNA backbone.

  2. - COVID-19 vaccine efforts to be re-allocated to accelerate the development of second-generation program in collaboration with GSK

    - First-generation vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, to be withdrawn from regulatory review due to potential overlap with approval timelines for a second-generation candidate

    TÜBINGEN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2021 / CureVac N.V. (NASDAQ:CVAC), a global biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid ("mRNA"), today announced the strategic decision to focus its COVID-19 vaccine development towards the development of second-generation mRNA vaccine candidates in collaboration with GSK and to withdraw its first-generation COVID-19 vaccine…

    - COVID-19 vaccine efforts to be re-allocated to accelerate the development of second-generation program in collaboration with GSK

    - First-generation vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, to be withdrawn from regulatory review due to potential overlap with approval timelines for a second-generation candidate

    TÜBINGEN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2021 / CureVac N.V. (NASDAQ:CVAC), a global biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid ("mRNA"), today announced the strategic decision to focus its COVID-19 vaccine development towards the development of second-generation mRNA vaccine candidates in collaboration with GSK and to withdraw its first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, from the current approval process with the European Medicines Agency (EMA). In view of a recent EMA communication, CureVac estimates that the earliest potential approval of CVnCoV would come in the second quarter of 2022. By this time, the companies expect the candidates from the second-generation vaccine program to have progressed to late-stage clinical development. The decision is also aligned with the evolving dynamics of the pandemic response towards a greater need for differentiated vaccines to address the developing endemic SARS-CoV2 situation. As a direct consequence, the existing Advanced Purchase Agreement with the European Commission, which was predicated on employing CVnCoV to address the acute pandemic need, will cease. CureVac is assessing the possibility of leveraging CVnCoV commitments for the second-generation vaccine candidates. CureVac remains in contact with the European Commission and is supportive of its public health efforts.

    CureVac and GSK have tightened their collaboration by adding further resources and experts to accelerate development and manufacturing of the broad second-generation program. The companies anticipate entering clinical development in the next months, aiming to achieve regulatory approval for market readiness of an improved COVID-19 vaccine in 2022. Published pre-clinical results have shown the strong potential of the initial second-generation mRNA COVID-19 vaccine candidate, CV2CoV, compared to CureVac's first generation mRNA, CVnCoV. The data demonstrates up to 10x higher immunogenicity in animal models. In parallel to the work on the second-generation mRNA vaccine technology, GSK and CureVac will accelerate efforts to progress the development of modified mRNA vaccine constructs.

    "The global fight against COVID-19 continues, and we remain committed to making a difference with a safe and efficacious vaccine. This goal has not changed, but the requirements to effectively address the virus and emerging variants have changed. In the ongoing transition from acute pandemic to endemic, our decision to withdraw CVnCoV from the regulatory approval process and focus our efforts on second-generation mRNA vaccine candidates reflects expected changes in public health needs that our second generation can potentially address," said Franz-Werner Haas, Chief Executive Officer of CureVac. "We will now take advantage of CVnCoV learnings and infrastructures to focus our resources on advanced second-generation vaccines in close collaboration with GSK, a global leader in the vaccine field."

    Rino Rappuoli, Head of Vaccines R&D, GSK said: "We welcome CureVac's focus on the promising second-generation mRNA vaccine technology we are developing together as it has shown strong improvement compared to CureVac's first-generation candidate, CVnCoV, in pre-clinical testing. To complement the development of this second generation non-modified mRNA technology, we have also initiated the development of modified mRNA technologies as part of our collaboration."

    The CureVac-GSK COVID-19 collaboration builds on the existing strategic mRNA technology partnership both companies started in July 2020 for several selected targets in the field of infectious diseases. The collaboration was recently extended, allocating additional resources across both companies. The joint development focuses on optimized second-generation mRNA vaccines that offer the potential to target different COVID-19 variants, the ability to address different diseases in a combination shot and improved vaccine administration formats.

    TÜBINGEN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / September 14, 2021 / CureVac N.V. (NASDAQ:CVAC), a global biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid ("mRNA"), today announced its strategic decision to adjust the long-term footprint of the external European manufacturing network for its mRNA product pipeline. The decision was made in response to the reduced short-term peak demand for vaccines following the first wave of the pandemic vaccination efforts and corresponding changes in the demand of its first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, CVnCoV, currently under regulatory review with the European Medicines Agency (EMA). As a result, the existing contracts with WACKER for the manufacturing of the mRNA drug substance of CVnCoV and Celonic for the manufacturing and formulation of the mRNA drug substance of CVnCoV will be terminated. CureVac's existing agreements with Rentschler Biopharma and Novartis for mRNA production and formulation are unaffected by this adjustment and remain in place. Streamlining of capacity does not limit availability of clinical trial material for CV2CoV, the second-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate jointly developed with GSK, expected to enter the clinic in the fourth quarter of 2021.

    "The continuous increase in mRNA manufacturing capacity together with the progress of large-scale vaccination efforts have strongly changed the demand for our first-generation COVID-19 vaccine, CVnCoV, over the last months," said Dr. Malte Greune, Chief Operating Officer of CureVac. "The development from a very high, short-term pandemic demand to broader availability of vaccines has led us to re-evaluate our immediate manufacturing capacity requirements in order to align the capacity with actual commercial and clinical capacity needs for CVnCoV. We would like to thank both our manufacturing partners for their dedication and effort in achieving our common goal to combat the pandemic with this key technology."

    CureVac first announced the build-up of its broad external European manufacturing network in November 2020, next to the ongoing expansion of large in-house clinical and commercial manufacturing capacities. Since then, several manufacturing agreements were made with highly experienced Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization partners for each of the key manufacturing steps for CVnCoV. The agreements with WACKER and Celonic were cancelled within the agreed contractual termination provisions. The parties agreed not to disclose financial details of the cancellation.

    TÜBINGEN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / August 31, 2021 / CureVac N.V. (NASDAQ:CVAC), a global biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid ("mRNA"), today announced the publication of its pivotal Phase 2b/3 (HERALD study) primary data of CVnCoV, its first-generation COVID-19 vaccine candidate, in Preprints with The Lancet. The HERALD study enrolled approximately 40,000 participants in ten countries across Latin America and Europe, in the predefined age groups 18 to 60 and above 60. For the final analysis, COVID-19 cases were caused by 15 different virus variants.

    As previously announced, the data were based on 228 adjudicated COVID-19 cases, occurring at least two weeks after administration of the second dose. CVnCoV demonstrated overall vaccine efficacy of 48% against COVID-19 disease of any severity, including single non-respiratory mild symptoms. Significant protection was demonstrated among participants in the age group of 18 to 60, with an efficacy of 53% against disease of any severity and across all 15 identified strains; protection against moderate to severe disease for this age group was calculated to be 77%. In the same age group, CVnCoV provided 100% protection against hospitalization or death.

    CureVac is in close interaction with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and will continue to seek regulatory approval for CVnCoV to leverage the vaccine's strengths in the large segment of the population where it provides demonstrated protection. Submission of comprehensive clinical data packages to the EMA is ongoing as part of the rolling submission initiated in February 2021 and is expected to be finalized toward the end of the third quarter of 2021. As the lack of effective vaccines is still a challenge in many parts of the world, CVnCoV has the potential to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and the increasingly complex variant context, which warrants a vaccine that has been clinically tested in a variant-dominated environment.

    About CVnCoV

    CureVac began development of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine candidates in January 2020. The vaccine candidate chosen for first clinical development, CVnCoV, is an optimized, non-chemically modified mRNA, encoding the prefusion stabilized full-length spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and formulated within Lipid Nanoparticles (LNPs). Phase 1 and 2a clinical trials of CVnCoV began in June and September 2020, respectively. Phase 1 interim data reported in November 2020 showed that CVnCoV was generally well tolerated across all tested doses and induced robust antibody responses in addition to T cell activation. The quality of the immune response was comparable to recovered COVID-19 patients, closely mimicking the immune response after natural COVID-19 infection. A pivotal Phase 2b/3, the HERALD study, with a 12µg dose of CVnCoV was initiated in December 2020. In February 2021, CureVac initiated a rolling submission with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for CVnCoV.
