Summary of the Material and Other Risks Associated with Our Business

 

Our business is subject to numerous material and other risks and uncertainties that you should be aware of in evaluating our business. These risks include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

We are a targeted oncology company with a limited operating history.
We have incurred significant net losses since our inception and anticipate that we will continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future.
We have no products approved for commercial sale and have not generated any revenue from product sales.
We will require additional capital to finance our operations, which may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all. If we are unable to raise capital when needed or on terms acceptable to us, we would be forced to delay, reduce or eliminate some of our product development programs or commercialization efforts.
Raising additional capital may cause dilution to our stockholders, restrict our operations or require us to relinquish rights to our technologies or product candidates.
The COVID-19 pandemic, or a similar pandemic, epidemic, or outbreak of an infectious disease, may materially and adversely affect our business and our financial results and could cause a disruption to the development of our product candidates.
We have never successfully completed any clinical trials for our oncology programs, and we may be unable to do so for any product candidates we develop. Certain of our oncology programs are still in preclinical development and may never advance to clinical development.
Our programs are focused on the development of oncology therapeutics for patients with genetically defined or biomarker-driven cancers, which is a rapidly evolving area of science, and the approach we are taking to discover and develop drugs is novel and may never lead to approved or marketable products.
Clinical product development involves a lengthy and expensive process, with an uncertain outcome.
We face substantial competition, which may result in others discovering, developing or commercializing products before or more successfully than we do.
If the market opportunities for our programs and product candidates are smaller than we estimate or if any regulatory approval that we obtain is based on a narrower definition of the patient population, our revenue and ability to achieve profitability will be adversely affected, possibly materially.
We rely on third parties to conduct our company sponsored Phase 1 clinical trials of IK-930, IK-175, and IK-007 and expect to rely on third parties to conduct clinical trials for our other programs that enter clinical trials. In addition, our product candidates may be evaluated in investigator-sponsored clinical trials. If these third parties do not successfully carry out their contractual duties, comply with regulatory requirements, or meet expected deadlines, we may not be able to obtain regulatory approval for or commercialize our product candidates and our business could be substantially harmed.
We have entered into collaborations and may enter into additional collaborations in the future, and we might not realize the anticipated benefits of such collaborations.
If we are unable to obtain and maintain patent and other intellectual property protection for our technology and product candidates or if the scope of the intellectual property protection obtained is not sufficiently broad, our competitors could develop and commercialize technology and drugs similar or identical to ours, and our ability to successfully commercialize our technology and drugs may be impaired.
Obtaining and maintaining regulatory approval of our product candidates in one jurisdiction does not mean that we will be successful in obtaining regulatory approval of our product candidates in other jurisdictions.
Our future success depends on our ability to retain key executives and experienced scientists and to attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel.
The dual class structure of our common stock may limit your ability to influence corporate matters and may limit your visibility with respect to certain transactions.

The material and other risks summarized above should be read together with the text of the full risk factors below and with the other information set forth in this Annual Report, including our consolidated financial statements and the related notes, as well as with other documents that we file with the SEC. If any such material and other risks and uncertainties actually occur, our business, prospects,

iv


 

financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. The risks summarized above, or described in full below, are not the only risks that we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us, or that we currently deem to be immaterial may also materially adversely affect our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

IKENA ONCOLOGY, INC.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

Note 1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

Ikena Oncology, Inc. (the "Company") is a targeted oncology company developing precision medicines tailored to biomarker-defined patient groups with specific unmet needs. With its robust biomarker and translational approach the Company aims to develop targeted treatments and define patient populations who are most likely to respond to treatment. The Company's current programs are across the Hippo pathway, RAS pathway, and key immune signals in the tumor-microenvironment (TME), with approaches to targeting both cancer driving targets and mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies. The Company's focus on patient-driven development is platform and process agnostic, allowing it to research both known and novel targets, with a shared guiding principle of aiming to address the unmet needs of biomarker-defined patient populations. Since the Company commenced operations in 2016, it has advanced multiple product candidates into clinical development. In addition, the Company has a robust pipeline of discovery-stage targeted oncology programs.

Basis of Presentation: The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). Any reference in these notes to applicable guidance is meant to refer to the authoritative U.S. GAAP as found in the ASC and Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and footnotes to the financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the most recently audited annual financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all normal recurring adjustments necessary for the fair presentation of the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2022 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022, any other interim periods, or any future year or period. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with, our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, which were included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 17, 2022.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Principles of Consolidation: The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Arrys Therapeutics, Inc. (“Arrys”), Ikena Oncology Securities Corporation and Amplify Medicines, Inc, (“Amplify”). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates: The preparation of the Company’s financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates and judgments are based on historical information and other market-specific or various relevant assumptions, including in certain circumstances, future projections, that management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ materially from estimates. Significant estimates and assumptions are used for, but not limited to the accruals for research and development expenses, research and development revenue under a collaboration agreement, the determination of fair value of equity instruments and intangible assets acquired in an asset acquisition and, for periods prior to the completion of the IPO, stock based compensation expense.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies: The significant accounting policies and estimates used in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements are described in the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K that was filed with the SEC on March 17, 2022. There have been no material changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2022 except as discussed below.

Concentration of Credit Risk and of Significant Suppliers: Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities. Cash and cash equivalents are deposited with federally insured financial institutions in the United States and may, at times, exceed federally insured limits. The Company places marketable securities with highly rated financial institutions, and, by policy, limit the amount of credit exposure to any one financial institution. The Company has not experienced any losses on such accounts and does not believe it is exposed to any significant credit risk on cash and cash equivalents.

The Company is dependent on third-party manufacturers and clinical research organizations to supply products and provide services for research and development activities in its programs. In particular, the Company relies and expects to continue to rely on a small number of manufacturers to supply it with its requirements for the active pharmaceutical ingredients and formulated drugs related to these programs. These programs could be adversely affected by a significant interruption in the supply of active pharmaceutical ingredients and formulated drugs.

Marketable securities: The Company invests its excess cash balances in marketable securities and classifies its investments as available-for-sale based on facts and circumstances present at the time it purchased the securities. At each balance sheet date presented, the Company classified all of its investments in marketable securities as available-for-sale and as current assets as they represent the investment of funds available for current operations. The Company reports available-for-sale debt securities at fair value at each balance sheet date and include any unrealized holding gains and losses (the adjustment to fair value) in accumulated other comprehensive loss, a component of stockholders’ equity. Realized gains and losses are determined using the specific identification method and are included in other income (expense). If any adjustment to fair value reflects a decline in the value of the marketable securities, the Company considers all available evidence to evaluate if an impairment loss exists, and if so, mark the investment to market through a charge to its consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss. The Company's marketable securities are classified as cash equivalents if the original maturity, from the date of purchase, is 90 days or less, and as marketable securities if the original maturity, from the date of purchase, is in excess of 90 days. The Company's cash equivalents are generally composed of commercial paper, corporate notes, U.S. treasury securities and money market funds.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements: From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies and adopted by us as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, the Company believes that the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and disclosures.
