SALT LAKE CITY, May 8, 2023 — Recursion (Nasdaq: RXRX), a clinical stage TechBio company leading the space by decoding biology to industrialize drug discovery, today reported business updates and financial results for its first quarter ending March 31, 2023.
“Recursion has pioneered the massive, parallel generation of -omics data with machine learning in order to map and navigate biology to discover new medicines faster. The strategic acquisitions of Cyclica and Valence add industry-leading capabilities in digital chemistry, as well as machine-learning and artificial intelligence, which combined with our large-scale automated wet-laboratories and supercomputing capabilities, enables us to deploy what I believe is the most complete, technology-enabled drug discovery solution in the biopharma industry. We look forward to showing the world proof of the compounding benefit of this full-stack approach through the rapid acceleration of our pipeline and partnerships. Amidst a rapidly accelerating global race for technology talent, these acquisitions cement Recursion as the center of gravity for the best and brightest in ML and AI who want to reimagine how drugs are discovered,” said Chris Gibson, Ph.D., Co-Founder and CEO of Recursion. “I am so excited to welcome the Cyclica and Valence teams to Recursion, especially at such a dynamic moment in history when machine learning and artificial intelligence are creating so much rapid change across every industry.”
Summary of Business Highlights
•Digital Chemistry and Generative AI Acquisitions
◦Cyclica: Cyclica has built an industry-leading digital chemistry software suite which enables mechanism of action deconvolution, generative chemistry and molecular optimization tools. Recursion completed a prospective, blinded evaluation of their software against challenging internal programs, where we gained deep confidence in the power of their tools and reinforced our belief that this team could accelerate Recursion’s work across its pipeline and partnerships by rapidly advancing the discovery of new chemical entities. We believe that Cyclica’s tools will enhance the optimization of our compounds for efficacy while minimizing liabilities through generative machine learning approaches. The company is located in Toronto, where Recursion maintains its biggest hub outside of its headquarters, and the teams at Cyclica will be fully integrated into Recursion.
◦Valence: Valence is a ML/AI-native digital chemistry company which has pioneered the development of novel hybrid graph neural networks and transformers for state-of-the-art chemical property prediction. The small team at Valence has led a massive open-science movement with a network of academic collaborators at the pinnacle of machine learning, chemistry and other fields. Based in Montréal, where Recursion also maintains a ML research team, Valence will work on cutting-edge applied ML research across chemistry and biology. We believe that the technology they have built and will build will enable acceleration of our work at Recursion across many fields, beginning with generative design of new molecules, DMPK predictions and more. Combined with Recursion’s wet-lab data generation capabilities and one of the largest relatable datasets in the industry, the team will also accelerate ongoing internal work to build foundation models, large-language models and other approaches leveraging active learning.
◦Financial Impact of Acquisitions: Recursion has entered into agreements to acquire Cyclica for a purchase price of $40 million and Valence for a purchase price of $47.5 million, in each case subject to customary closing and post-closing purchase price adjustments. The purchase price in the acquisitions will be payable in the form of shares of Recursion Class A common stock, shares of a subsidiary of Recursion exchangeable for shares of Recursion’s Class A common stock and the assumption of certain outstanding Valence and Cyclica options. In certain circumstances, Recursion may pay cash consideration to Valence and Cyclica shareholders in lieu of such exchangeable shares or Recursion Class A common stock. Recursion expects no material change to its cash runway as a result of these acquisitions. Recursion expects both acquisitions to be completed in the second quarter of 2023, subject to applicable closing conditions.
◦Cerebral Cavernous Malformation (CCM) (REC-994): Our Phase 2 SYCAMORE clinical trial is a double-blind, placebo-controlled safety, tolerability and exploratory efficacy study of this drug candidate in 60 participants with CCM. We have enrolled the majority of participants associated with this study, and most participants who have finished their first year of treatment have now enrolled in the long-term extension study. We expect to share top-line data in H2 2024.
◦Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) (REC-2282): Our Phase 2/3 POPLAR clinical trial is a parallel group, two stage, randomized, multicenter study of this drug candidate in approximately 90 participants with progressive NF2-mutated
meningiomas. Enrollment is ongoing and we expect to share a Phase 2 interim safety analysis in 2024.
◦Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) (REC-4881): Our Phase 2 TUPELO clinical trial is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled two-part clinical trial to evaluate efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of this drug candidate in patients with FAP. We continue to advance this study.
◦AXIN1 or APC Mutant Cancers (REC-4881): REC-4881 is being studied for the potential treatment of AXIN1 or APC mutant cancers with an initial focus on solid tumors harboring these mutations. We are developing a Phase 2 open-label study for REC-4881 in participants with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic cancer with AXIN1 or APC mutations. We expect to initiate a Phase 2 biomarker enriched study across select AXIN1 or APC mutant solid tumors in early 2024.
◦Clostridioides difficile Colitis (REC-3964): Our Phase 1 clinical trial is a first-in-human protocol evaluating single and multiple doses of REC-3964 in healthy volunteers and will assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of REC-3964. We have enrolled the majority of participants associated with this study, and REC-3964 has been well tolerated to date. We expect to share safety and PK data in H2 2023.
◦RBM39 HR-Proficient Ovarian Cancer: In January 2023, we disclosed that RBM39 (previously identified as Target Gamma) is the novel CDK12-adjacent target identified by the Recursion OS. We believe that we can modulate this target to produce a potentially therapeutic effect in HR-proficient ovarian cancer. We have advanced this program to the preclinical stage and have initiated IND-enabling studies.
We continue to advance efforts to discover potential new therapeutics with our strategic partners in the areas of neuroscience and a single indication in gastrointestinal oncology (Roche-Genentech) as well as fibrotic disease (Bayer). In the near-term, there is the potential for option exercises associated with partnership programs, option exercises associated with map building initiatives or data sharing and additional partnerships in large, intractable areas of biology or technological innovation.
◦Industrialized Program Generation: This end-to-end process validates map-based insights without human intervention. Following the proposal of disease model starting points, Industrialized Program Generation carries out the programmatic selection of compound hits, compound ordering coordination, and validation through phenomic and transcriptomic profiling. Given the large number of proto-programs that are expected from this process, we look forward to leveraging the digital chemistry technology and expertise of the Cyclica and Valence teams to design and optimize chemical structures for novel biological targets.
