Daix (France), Long Island City (New York, United States), September 28, 2023 – Inventiva (Euronext Paris and Nasdaq: IVA) (the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of oral small molecule therapies for the treatment of patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (“NASH”) and other diseases with significant unmet medical needs, today reported its financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2023, and provided a corporate update.
Frédéric Cren, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and cofounder of Inventiva, stated: “The first half of the year has been rich in progress for Inventiva. One of the major milestones achieved in recent months has been the positive topline results of the Phase II clinical trial initiated by Prof. Kenneth Cusi, evaluating lanifibranor in patients with T2D and NAFLD. These results further confirm the robustness of lanifibranor’s mechanism of action. On the clinical front, we have received confirmation from our partner Sino Biopharm, that it is eligible to start clinical development of lanifibranor in China, the second largest country in the world in terms of NASH population. Finally, we have made advancements in our pivotal Phase III clinical trial following the implementation of the new study design announced this past January. We are continuing to recruit patients in this trial and look forward to the months ahead, with the first visit of the last patient targeted for the end of the year. We have started the second half of this year with two major financial milestones as we have obtained a financing of approximately 36 million euros from new and existing investors and recently entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Hepalys Pharma, Inc., to develop and commercialize lanifibranor for the treatment of NASH in Japan and South Korea. We are delighted with this partnership, which enables us to extend our international footprint to two countries where the prevalence of NASH is high and enables us to receive in addition to the 10 million dollars upfront, up to approximately 231 million dollars in milestone payments, subject to achievement of specified milestones. We are looking to the months ahead with great optimism.”

The Company’s revenues for the first half of 2023 amounted to €1.9 million, as compared to €0.1 million for the same period in 2022. The increase is mainly due to the receipt of the first regulatory milestone payment from CTTQ, Sino Biopharm’s subsidiary, which was received in July 2023. The milestone payment was triggered in May 2023 after CTTQ received the Investigational New Drug (“IND”) approval from the Chinese National Medical Products Administration (“NMPA”) to initiate the clinical development in mainland China of lanifibranor in NASH.
Other income amounted to €4.7 million for the first half of 2023, as compared to €3.3 million for the first half of 2022, increased 42% mainly driven by the French R&D tax credit based on the increasing eligible expenses, by the U.S. R&D tax credit and to a lesser extent by the commencement of invoicing CTTQ, Sino Biopharm’s subsidiary for their clinical development expenses in Great China incurred by Inventiva.
R&D expenses for the first half of 2023 amounted to €54.1 million, mainly driven by the development of lanifibranor in NASH, and were up 81% compared to the €29.9 million for the first half of 2022. This increase reflects the 2023 planned acceleration of the clinical development activities mostly driven by costs associated with the NATiV3 Phase III clinical trial of lanifibranor in NASH, and, to a lesser extent, with the LEGEND Phase IIa combination trial with lanifibranor and empagliflozin in patients with NASH and type 2 diabetes (“T2D”).
Marketing and business development expenses stood at (€0.7) million for the first half of 2023 compared to (€0.3) million for the same period in 2022 mainly related to the increasing market access activities to prepare for the potential commercial development of lanifibranor.
General and administrative expenses (G&A) amounted to €6.8 million in the first half of 2023, stable compared to the first half of 2022.
Net financial income (loss) amounted to (€0.3) million in the first half of 2023, compared to €4.0 million mainly related to less favourable foreign exchange rates in 2023 due to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar against the euro during the period, and the full effect of the interest expenses related to the EIB and state loans contracted in 2022.
The Company’s net loss stood at (€55.3) million as of June 30, 2023 compared to (€29.5) million as of June 30, 2022.
As of June 30, 2023, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to €31.2 million, short-term deposits amounted to 0.05 million2, and long-term deposit amounted to €9.3 million3, compared to €86.7 million, €1.0 million and €0.7 million as of December 31, 2022, respectively.
The €48.0 million decrease in cash and cash equivalents between June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 is mainly due to increased cash used in operating activities and reflects the 2023 planned acceleration of the clinical development activities mostly driven by costs associated with the NATiV3 Phase III clinical trial of lanifibranor in NASH, and, to a lesser extent, with the LEGEND Phase IIa combination trial with lanifibranor and empagliflozin in patients with NASH T2D.
Net cash used in operating activities amounted to (€45.2) million in the first half of 2023, compared to (€26.2) million for the same period in 2022. R&D expenses for the first half of 2023 were up 81% compared to the first half of 2022. This increase related to clinical development activities planned in 2023.
Net cash used in investing activities for the first half of 2023 amounted to (€7.7) million, compared to (€0.3) million in the first half of 2022. The change is mostly due to the change in deposits between both periods.
Net cash used in financing activities for the first half of 2023 amounted to (€2.2) million, compared to net cash generated by financing activities of €14 million in the first half of 2022. The net cash generated in financing activities in 2022 was mainly driven by the equity raised through the Company’s At-The-Market Program for approximately €9.4 million (gross proceeds) in June 2022, and three loan agreements with a syndicate of French banks for a total amount of €5.3 million entered into in the first half of 2022. In the first half of 2023, the net cash used in financing activities was mainly due to loan reimbursement and medical imaging equipment debt rents.
Over the first half of 2023, the Company recorded a negative exchange rate effect on cash and cash equivalents of (€0.4) million, compared to a positive effect of €2.4 million for the first half of 2022, due to the evolution of EUR/USD exchange rate.
Following the August 2023 financing of €35.7 million in gross proceeds and the receipt of the CTTQ milestone net payment of €1.7 million received in July 2023, the Company believes, taking into account its current cost structure and forecast expenditure commitments, that its cash, cash equivalents and deposits should be sufficient to fund its operations until the beginning of the second quarter of 2024.
Considering its current cost structure and forecast expenditure commitments, following the August 31, 2023 financing of €35.7 million in gross proceeds and including the expected upfront payment from Hepalys Pharma of $10 million, and short term milestone from CTTQ that would be triggered by the 1st patient enrolled in Great China, and the expected satisfaction of the conditions for disbursement of the second tranche of €25 million of the EIB facility expected by the end of 2023, the Company estimates that including all of the foregoing, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents and deposits would allow the Company to fund its operations until the beginning of the third quarter of 2024.4
Financial information after closing the accounts
On August 31, 2023, the Company announced a financing of approximately €35.7 million in aggregate gross proceeds consisting of two transactions: (i) the issuance of 9,618,638 newly issued ordinary shares with a nominal value of €0.01 per share at a subscription price of €3.18 per share and aggregate gross proceeds of €30.6 million (the “Capital Increase”) and (ii) the issuance of royalty certificates for an amount of €5.1 million (the “Royalty Certificates”).
On September 20, 2023, the Company announced that Hepalys Pharma, Inc., a Catalys Pacific company, and Inventiva have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement to develop and commercialize Inventiva’s proprietary drug candidate lanifibranor for the treatment of NASH and potentially other metabolic diseases in Japan and South Korea. Inventiva has exercised the option to acquire 30% of the shares Hepalys Pharma. Under the terms of this licensing agreement, Inventiva is entitled to receive a $10 million upfront payment from Hepalys Pharma, Inc., and will be eligible to receive up to $ 231 million in milestone payments if certain clinical, regulatory and commercial conditions are met. Subject to regulatory approval, Inventiva will additionally have the right to receive tiered royalties from mid double digits to low twenties based on net sales of lanifibranor in Japan and Korea.
Implementation of a new ATM program following the conclusion of a sales agreement with TD Cowen and replacing the existing ATM program dated August 2, 2021
Inventiva has filed today a prospectus supplement with the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding the implementation of a new At-The-Market (“ATM”) program, which replaces the existing ATM program implemented on August 2, 20215 and allows the Company to issue and sell "at-the-market", including with unsolicited investors who have expressed an interest, ordinary shares in the form of American Depositary Shares (“ADS”), each ADS representing one ordinary share of Inventiva, up to a maximum amount of USD 58 million (subject to a regulatory limit of 20% dilution and within the limits of the investors' requests expressed in the context of the program), from time to time, pursuant to the terms of a new sale agreement entered into with TD Cowen, acting as sales agent. In connection with the establishment the new ATM program, Inventiva terminated the sales agreement concluded with Jefferies on August 2, 2021, relating to its previous program, effective as of today. The maximum of USD 58 million under the new ATM program corresponds to the maximum amount of ADS available to be sold under the previous ATM program of USD 100 million, less sales of USD 42 million under the previous program performed since August 2, 2021. Since June 2022, the Company has not made any new issue under the existing ATM Program6 .
The terms and conditions of the new ATM program are similar to the previous one and will remain effective until August 2, 2024, unless terminated prior to such date in accordance with the sale agreement or the maximum number of ADSs to be sold thereunder has been reached.
The Company currently intends to use the net proceeds, if any, of sales of ADSs issued under the program to fund the research and development of its product candidates, and for working capital and general corporate purposes. ADSs offered in the ATM and the underlying ordinary shares would be issued through a capital increase without shareholders’ preferential subscription rights and reserved to the categories of investors defined in the 6th resolution adopted by the annual general meeting of shareholders held on January 25, 2023 (or any similar resolutions that may be substituted to them in the future), comprising Under the authority granted by our shareholders, the ADSs may only be purchased initially by (i) persons, legal entities (including companies), trusts or investment funds, or other investment vehicles, regardless of their form, under French or foreign law, investing on a regular basis in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical technology sectors; and/or (ii) French or foreign companies, institutions or entities, regardless of their form, carrying out a significant part of their activities in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic or chemical sectors or in medical devices and/or technologies or in research in these fields.
The ADSs offered in the ATM can only be offered to “Qualified Institutional Buyers” as defined in Rule 144A under the US 1933 Securities Act, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or to “accredited investors” as defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act.
The new ordinary shares will be admitted to trading on the regulated market of Euronext in Paris and the issued ADSs will trade on the Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”).

§ Q3 2023 Revenues and cash position: Tuesday, November 21, 2023 (after U.S. market close)
Inventiva is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the research and development of oral small molecule therapies for the treatment of patients with NASH (also known as metabolic dysfunction-associated steatohepatitis (MASH)), mucopolysaccharidoses (“MPS”) and other diseases with significant unmet medical need. The Company benefits from a strong expertise and experience in the domain of compounds targeting nuclear receptors, transcription factors and epigenetic modulation. Inventiva is currently advancing one clinical candidate, has a pipeline of two preclinical programs and continues to explore other development opportunities to add to its pipeline.
Inventiva’s lead product candidate, lanifibranor, is currently in a pivotal Phase III clinical trial, NATiV3, for the treatment of adult patients with NASH, a common and progressive chronic liver disease for which there are currently no approved therapies.
Inventiva’s pipeline also includes odiparcil, a drug candidate for the treatment of adult MPS VI patients. As part of Inventiva’s decision to focus clinical efforts on the development of lanifibranor, it suspended its clinical efforts relating to odiparcil and is reviewing available options with respect to its potential further development. Inventiva is also in the process of selecting an oncology development candidate for its Hippo signaling pathway program.
The Company has a scientific team of approximately 90 people with deep expertise in the fields of biology, medicinal and computational chemistry, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology, and clinical development. It owns an extensive library of approximately 240,000 pharmacologically relevant molecules, approximately 60% of which are proprietary, as well as a wholly-owned research and development facility.
Inventiva is a public company listed on compartment B of the regulated market of Euronext Paris (ticker: IVA, ISIN: FR0013233012) and on the Nasdaq Global Market in the United States (ticker: IVA). www.inventivapharma.com
