TYME Technologies Reviews Potential Strategic Options

  • TYME Technologies Inc TYME has decided to explore potential strategic options. It has engaged Moelis & Company LLC as its financial advisor and Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP as its legal advisor.
  • In January, TYME announced the discontinuation of a randomized Phase II/III trial of SM-88 in combination with methoxsalen, phenytoin, and sirolimus (MPS) for metastatic pancreatic cancer upon learning that the trial sponsor terminated the study arm due to futility. 
  • The Board's Strategic Planning Committee will act as a Transaction Committee and be led by TYME Board Member Timothy C. Tyson.
  • The Company does not intend to disclose additional details unless and until entered into a specific transaction.
  • "The goal of the strategic evaluation process is to ensure that we are exploring a range of possible options to maximize value for our stockholders. With $92 million in cash and marketable securities as of December 31, 2021, we believe that TYME is in a strong position to find an advantageous transaction," stated Richie Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of TYME.
  • TYME continues to evaluate SM-88 in two separate Phase 2 investigator-sponsored studies in HR+/HER2- breast cancer and sarcoma. 
  • Next month, a poster presentation from the Phase 2 OASIS study of SM-88 in HR+/HER2- breast cancer will be presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting.
  • The Company is also conducting a comprehensive translational preclinical program focused on SM-88 MOA and Biomarker Identification/Validation and has engaged Evotec SE EVO to aid in executing these activities.
  • Price Action: TYME shares are up 2.13% at $0.35 during the market session on the last check Tuesday.
