(“Cyteir”) (Nasdaq: CYT), a clinical stage oncology company, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023 and provided an update on recent operational highlights. “We have made encouraging progress enrolling patients in the CYT-0851 Phase 1 combination trial with capecitabine and gemcitabine, while maintaining our strong financial discipline,” said Markus Renschler, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cyteir. “We look forward to sharing preliminary data on the Phase 1 combination cohorts with CYT-0851 in mid-year.” Recent Updates to the CYT-0851 Clinical Program Enrollment in the Phase 1 trial with CYT-0851 in combination with capecitabine in advanced ovarian cancer continues at the 400mg dose of CYT-0851, which was determined to be the recommended Phase 2 dose in the capecitabine combination. Preliminary data on the combination with capecitabine are expected to be disclosed in mid-2023. Enrollment in the Phase 1 dose escalation cohorts of CYT-0851 in combination with gemcitabine in solid tumors continues. A maximum tolerated dose and/or recommended Phase 2 dose of CYT-0851 in combination with gemcitabine is expected to be determined and preliminary results to be disclosed in mid-2023. A poster of preliminary results of monotherapy and combination data with CYT-0851 will be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology during the Developmental Therapeutics—Molecularly Targeted Agents and Tumor Biology poster session on June 3, 2023 at 8:00am.

Abstract: 3099, Poster Bd #: 297 Recent Business Updates Cyteir is pursuing out-licensing of its preclinical DNA polymerase theta (POLθ or POLQ) inhibitorPOLQ) inhibitor program. First Quarter 2023 Financial Results Cash and cash equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2023 were $137.2 million, which are expected to fund planned operations into 2026. Research and development (R&D) expenses: R&D expenses were $9.3 million for the first quarter of 2023 versus $10.1 million for the same period in 2022. The year-over-year decrease in R&D spending was due primarily to a decrease in costs related to our MCT inhibitor program, which includes research activities and ongoing clinical trial costs, partially offset by an increase in personnel severance-related costs. General and administrative (G&A) expenses: G&A expenses were $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2023 compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2022. The year-over-year increase in G&A expenses was primarily due to an increase in personnel severance-related costs, partially offset by a decrease in insurance and state taxes. Net loss: Net loss was $12.5 million, or $0.35 per share, in the first quarter of 2023 compared to $14.1 million, or $0.40 per share, for the same period in 2022. About Cyteir Therapeutics, Inc.
