DURHAM, N.C., March 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scorpius Holdings, Inc (NYSE American: SCPX), an integrated contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), today announced that it has been awarded a contract in excess of $1 million with an NIH-funded researcher at a major university.

The program involves process optimization and development of a therapeutic antibody, which Scorpius will manufacture for preclinical studies. The work will be conducted in the Company’s state-of-the-art process development lab and cGMP cleanrooms in its Mammalian Building, which is ideally suited for early-stage programs using CHO cell lines. Following process optimization and development, the Company expects to expand the scope of the agreement to include Phase 1 clinical manufacturing.

Jeff Wolf, CEO of Scorpius, stated, "Scorpius is excited to begin work with another nationally renowned university. Our selection by this leading researcher highlights our unique process development, bioanalysis, and manufacturing capabilities, which we have the ability to leverage into much larger projects as the programs progress through clinical stages and eventually into commercialization. There is a tremendous amount of innovative research being conducted at academic institutions, and Scorpius is well-suited to provide these clients with the attention and responsiveness they otherwise would not receive from a CDMO. Overall, we could not be more excited about the outlook for the business and the traction we are gaining.”

NEWS -- Scorpius Holdings Estimates Greater than 375% Sequential Increase in Revenue for the Fourth Quarter of 2023 Compared to the Third Quarter of 2023



Estimates Sequential Reduction in the Fourth Quarter of 2023 Operating Loss by Over $3.3 Million or Approximately 30% Compared to the Third Quarter of 2023

Achieves Record Backlog of $9.3 Million

DURHAM, N.C., March 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scorpius Holdings, Inc., (“Scorpius”) (NYSE American: SCPX), an integrated contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), today reported preliminary, unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of 2023.

Jeff Wolf, CEO of Scorpius, stated, “We are firing on all cylinders and currently estimate our preliminary, unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 to be in the range of $3.4 million to $3.6 million, which would represent a greater than 375% sequential increase over the third quarter of 2023. Our contract bookings of over $20 million in 2023 and strong business development efforts in the first quarter of 2024 have produced a record current backlog of $9.3 million. This backlog, along with a strong pipeline of new opportunities, gives us tremendous confidence in our growth trajectory for 2024. In addition, I am pleased to report that we estimate our preliminary, unaudited operating losses for the fourth quarter declined by over $3.3 million, or approximately 30%, compared to the third quarter of 2023, as almost all of our upfront investments in the new facility are now behind us. Most notably, we have built a highly scalable operation, and as revenue continues to grow, we expect to become cash flow positive by early 2025 due to the high incremental margins in our business.”

Mr. Wolf continued, “We are witnessing increasing demand for our state-of-the-art large molecule CDMO services, which has been compounded by the significant shortage of dedicated clinical-scale manufacturing capacity within the industry. Moreover, the large molecule drug substance CDMO market is projected to grow from over $10 billion in 2023 to $21 billion by 20301, highlighting the need for additional industry capacity. Our capabilities, seamless execution, and flexibility to meet the needs of our customers has allowed us to attract premier biopharma and biotech companies, as well as leading research institutions. We typically onboard these customers at the early stages of clinical development, which provides us the opportunity to expand our scope of work as their therapies progress through clinical trials and, ultimately, into full-scale commercial production. Our unique 40,000+ sq. ft. campus, with investments totaling over $65 million to date, provides us sufficient capacity to grow our throughput with minimal additional capex requirements, which we believe is the key to maximizing profits and returns for our shareholders.”

Based upon a preliminary, unaudited review, the Company currently estimates revenue in the range of $3.4 million to $3.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. The increase in revenue reflects the completion of contract milestones primarily in the microbial facility and process development work. Additionally, the Company estimates that our operating loss will decline by over $3.3 million, or approximately 30%, as a result of primary completion of qualification and validation processes. The Company expects to report its complete 2023 audited financial results on or before March 28, 2024.

The estimated revenue and operating loss results for 2023 are preliminary and unaudited and are subject to completion of the Company’s financial closing procedures. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has not conducted an audit or review of and does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to, the preliminary unaudited revenue results. It is possible that the Company or its independent registered public accounting firm may identify items that require the Company to make adjustments to the preliminary estimates of revenue and/or operating loss set forth in the press release and those changes could be material. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on the preliminary estimates.

NEWS -- NightHawk Biosciences Announces Major Milestone with Completion of Manufacturing Run for a Premier U.S.-Based Biopharmaceutical Company



Manufacturing run at Scorpius’ state-of-the-art San Antonio microbial facility sets the stage for commercial manufacturing

Advances multi-million dollar biomanufacturing contract awarded earlier this year; set to expand upon client’s regulatory filing and start of commercial manufacturing

DURHAM, N.C., Dec. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightHawk Biosciences (NYSE American: NHWK) (“NightHawk” or the “Company”), an integrated contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), today announced its Scorpius BioManufacturing subsidiary initiated its first manufacturing run for a premier U.S.-based biopharmaceutical company in the Company’s new, state-of-the-art microbial manufacturing facility.

Jeff Wolf, CEO of NightHawk, commented, “We are generating strong interest in our CDMO services, given our state-of-the-art facility and the industry-wide lack of available capacity for large molecule manufacturing. This demonstration run in our new microbial facility marks a major milestone, as it represents the first at-scale production run with a premier biopharmaceutical company and reflects positively upon our manufacturing readiness, as well as our ability to meet their stringent product requirements. Importantly, this milestone enables us to build upon the initial multi-million-dollar contract with this client, which we expect to recognize as revenue during 2024. We also look forward to further expanding our scope of work and revenue potential of this agreement, as we work with our client to submit the necessary regulatory filings to commence commercial-scale production. We appreciate their trust in Scorpius to ensure this important product gets to patients as safely and quickly as possible.”

Mr. Wolf added, “This demonstration run and expansion of this agreement is further validation of our recent decision to streamline the organization through the divestiture of non-core assets to double-down on our CDMO activities, which we believe hold the potential to generate meaningful revenue and cash flow. We are witnessing growing interest in the industry as we build our track record and enhance our reputation. This is reflected in our rapidly expanding sales pipeline that now includes a number of premier biopharma companies, as well as leading government and academic research institutes.”

NEWS -- NightHawk Biosciences Announces Strategic Shift into a Pure-Play Large Molecule Biomanufacturing CDMO to Capitalize on Rapid Growth in Sales Pipeline along with Divestiture of Non-Core Assets



Over $20 million in signed manufacturing contracts which include premier biotech/pharma companies and research institutesElusys divestiture and R&D cuts expected to eliminate over $40 million in commitments and reduce operating expenses by more than $13 million per yearDURHAM, N.C., Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightHawk Biosciences (NYSE American: NHWK) today (“NightHawk” or the “Company”) announced its strategic shift into a pure-play biomanufacturing Contract Development & Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), as well as the divestiture of certain non-core assets, in order to focus on the growing sales within its Scorpius BioManufacturing subsidiary (“Scorpius”). The Company has booked contracts thus far in 2023, Scorpius’ first full year of operation, that are expected to generate over $20 million in revenue, a substantial portion of which will be recognized in 2024. To facilitate this strategic shift, the Company has divested its Elusys subsidiary and related assets, and has eliminated most of its R&D and associated expenses to focus its resources on growing and expanding Scorpius.

The assets will be acquired by a private company established by Jeff Wolf, CEO of NightHawk, which will assume Elusys’ contracted financial commitments, currently estimated at over $40 million. Under the terms of the transaction, the private company will also provide an upfront payment of $500,000, a note for $2.25 million that is convertible into shares of NightHawk’s common stock subject to receipt of stockholder approval, and royalties of 3% on all of Elusys’ gross sales until June 30, 2031. The royalties are subject to a mandatory minimum payment of $5 million during the first five years of the royalty term. The divestiture of Elusys and R&D cuts are expected to reduce the Company’s annual operating expenses by over $13 million and fully eliminate the need for NightHawk to raise capital to support Elusys’ programs.

Jeff Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of NightHawk and Elusys following the closing, commented, “Given the strength of our CDMO operations at Scorpius, we have made the strategic decision to refocus our efforts around those activities that hold the potential to generate meaningful cash flow while substantially reducing non-core costs and associated overhead. Scorpius booked $3 million in contracted sales in 2022, which has grown to over $20 million in contracted sales thus far in 2023. As contracted sales are generally recognized as revenue as work is performed, we expect to recognize substantial revenue on these booked contracts in 2024. We also have a very significant and growing sales pipeline, which includes contracts from premier pharma and biotech companies, as well as leading research institutes. We expect to close a number of new contracts before year-end and believe the growth in our sales pipeline is strong validation of the meaningful investments we have made in our Scorpius subsidiary. As we continue to grow our revenue and leverage our fixed costs, we expect our CDMO business to generate high margins and long-term profitability.”

Mr. Wolf added, “There is a significant shortage of clinical scale biologic manufacturing capacity within the industry as a result of growing demand for large molecule CDMO services. In turn, this has led to significant M&A activity within the sector. We believe we are extremely well positioned to capitalize on these trends given our state-of-the-art facility, experienced and dedicated team, broad service offering, and robust sales pipeline.”

John Prendergast, Ph.D., NightHawk’s lead director stated, “The divestiture of our non-core assets enables NightHawk to focus its resources on growing its Scorpius subsidiary, and will result in the immediate elimination of approximately $40 million of contractual obligations and reduction of over $13 million in operating expenses per year. Moreover, NightHawk will receive an upfront cash payment, as well as a $2.25 million convertible loan and at least $5 million in royalties on future Elusys gross payment receipts for approximately 7.5 years. This was vetted and approved by an independent committee of the board to be in the best long-term interests of NightHawk and its shareholders. As a pure-play CDMO, the board of NightHawk believes that NightHawk now has the opportunity to create substantial shareholder value in an underserved marketplace.”

Mr. Wolf further noted, “The senior management team and board of directors are laser-focused on transforming our company into a revenue-generating CDMO. We have shuttered most all of our research, substantially cut costs and divested our non-core assets to achieve this. Our goals are clear; provide the highest quality manufacturing services to our CDMO customers and focus on driving near and long-term revenue. We believe this strategic shift and divestiture of non-core assets will not only enhance our balance sheet and cashflow, but also drive meaningful returns to our shareholders for years to come.”

Jeff Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of NightHawk, commented, “We are very pleased with the progress of our Scorpius San Antonio facility where operations are advancing well and the feedback from our customers has been extremely positive. As a result, we are currently evaluating a variety of strategic options to maximize the potential of the business. We look forward to providing further updates on our efforts in the near future.”

Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

In August, the Company determined to make available for sale the equity interests of Elusys Therapeutics, Inc. Therefore, the results of operations have been reclassified as discontinued operations on a retrospective basis for all periods presented.For the three months ended September 30, 2023 we recognized $6.7 million of revenue from product sales, which is included in discontinued operations, $0.6 million of revenue from process development and $0.1 million from service revenue. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 we recognized $5.98 million of product sales revenue, which is included in discontinued operations, and $0.5 million of grant revenue. The increase in product sales revenue is due to the completion of the manufacturing conversion of ANTHIM® and the increase in process development revenue is attributable to the operations of the San Antonio CDMO facility. No grant revenue was recognized in 2023 as the CPRIT grant has ended.Cost of revenues were $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023. $2.2 million of these expenses primarily reflect the manufacturing conversion costs from the sale of ANTHIM® which are included in discontinued operations. The remaining $0.5 million primarily consists of direct cost of labor, overhead and material costs at Scorpius. We recognized $6.4 million of product cost of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022, driven by the sale of ANTHIM® to Canada which is included in discontinued operations.
Research and development expenses decreased approximately 3.7% to $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $5.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The components of R&D expense are as, in millions: HS-110 expense decreased by $0.1 million primarily due to the discontinuation of the clinical trial in 2022; HS-130 expense decreased to $0.0 from $0.1 million due to the de-prioritization of our oncology assets; PTX-35 expense decreased by $0.5 million primarily due to the discontinued clinical trial and development of the product candidate in the third quarter of 2022; other programs expense stayed consistent at $0.3 million and primarily relate to close out costs of our R&D facility; and unallocated research expenses increased by $0.5 million primarily due to increased personnel costs, depreciation expense, amortization expense and scientific hardware and software.Selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.1 million and $4.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The increase was primarily due to increases in marketing expense of $0.6 million, personnel expense of $0.4 million, depreciation and amortization of $0.2 million, and rent expense of $0.2 million, offset by a decrease in insurance expense of $0.1 million.As of September 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $9.5 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of which $3.3 million is in current assets held for sale.NightHawk Biosciences, Inc.

These expenses primarily reflect direct cost of labor, overhead and material costs for Scorpius biomanufacturing services. There was no cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as the Scorpius facility was not operational.Selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.8 million and $3.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $1.9 million for consulting and other professional expenses to manage the business and increased personnel costs of $1.0 million, and to a lesser extent, an increase in rent expense of $0.3 million, offset by a decrease in stock-based compensation expense of $0.1 million.Net loss attributable to NightHawk Biosciences was approximately $12.8 million, or ($0.49) per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to approximately $8.1 million, or ($0.32) per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2022.As of March 31, 2023, the Company had approximately $28.6 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments.About ANTHIM

Anthrax is a life-threatening infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracis. Cases of inhalational anthrax in humans can occur through intentional spread of B. anthracis spores as a biowarfare or bioterrorism agent. B. anthracis spores introduced through the lungs lead to inhalational anthrax, which is deadly in humans.

ANTHIM is a monoclonal antibody that binds to the protective antigen (PA) component of anthrax toxin. ANTHIM’s toxin neutralizing activity prevents entry of anthrax toxin into susceptible cells, avoiding further spread of the toxin throughout the body and the ensuing tissue damage that leads to death. ANTHIM is supplied as single-dose vials for IV infusion.

Indications and Usage

ANTHIM is indicated in adult and pediatric patients for the treatment of inhalational anthrax due to Bacillus anthracis in combination with appropriate antibacterial drugs, and for prophylaxis of inhalational anthrax when alternative therapies are not available or are not appropriate. ANTHIM should only be used for prophylaxis when its benefit for prevention of inhalational anthrax outweighs the risk of hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis. The effectiveness of ANTHIM is based solely on efficacy studies in animal models of inhalational anthrax. There have been no studies of the safety or pharmacokinetics (PK) of ANTHIM in the pediatric population. Dosing in pediatric patients was derived using a population PK approach. ANTHIM does not have direct antibacterial activity. ANTHIM should be used in combination with appropriate antibacterial drugs. ANTHIM is not expected to cross the blood-brain barrier and does not prevent or treat meningitis.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Including BOXED WARNING

WARNING: HYPERSENSITIVITY and ANAPHYLAXIS

Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been reported during ANTHIM infusion. ANTHIM should be administered in monitored settings by personnel trained and equipped to manage anaphylaxis. Stop ANTHIM infusion immediately and treat appropriately if hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis occurs.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis have been reported during the IV infusion of ANTHIM. Due to the risk of hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis, ANTHIM should be administered in monitored settings by personnel trained and equipped to manage anaphylaxis. Monitor individuals who receive ANTHIM closely for signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions throughout the infusion and for a period of time after administration. Stop ANTHIM infusion immediately and treat appropriately if hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis occurs. Pre-medication with diphenhydramine is recommended prior to administration of ANTHIM. Diphenhydramine pre-medication does not prevent anaphylaxis and may mask or delay onset of symptoms of hypersensitivity.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The safety of ANTHIM has been studied only in healthy volunteers. It has not been studied in patients with inhalational anthrax. The most frequently reported adverse reactions were headache, pruritus, infections of the upper respiratory tract, cough, vessel puncture site bruise, infusion site swelling, urticaria, nasal congestion, infusion site pain, and pain in extremity.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pediatric Use: There have been no studies of the safety or PK of ANTHIM in the pediatric population.

NEWS -- NightHawk Biosciences Provides First Quarter 2022 Business Update

DURHAM, N.C., May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightHawk Biosciences (NYSE American: NHWK), a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on developing first-in-class therapies to modulate the immune system, today provided strategic, financial, and operational updates for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Jeff Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of NightHawk, commented, “We are extremely proud of the progress we have made this quarter to transition NightHawk into a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company. On the business front, this month we announced the name change to NightHawk Biosciences to better reflect our evolution towards a fully integrated ecosystem that enables more rapid delivery of medical innovations with increased quality and efficiency. The NightHawk ecosystem includes an expanded development pipeline and enhanced manufacturing capabilities around five key subsidiaries: Skunkworx Bio, Heat Biologics, Pelican Therapeutics, Elusys Therapeutics and Scorpion Biological Services.”

“Moreover, we recently closed the strategic acquisition of Elusys Therapeutics (Elusys), which significantly expands our foothold in the biodefense space. The addition of Elusys’ ANTHIM®, a treatment for inhalation anthrax, complements our infectious disease product portfolio, which includes our RapidVax® platform, which is designed to target emerging biological threats. Shortly after the completion of the Elusys acquisition, we finalized our first international contract with the Canadian government to deliver ANTHIM® to their national stockpile. We are now pursuing additional opportunities to expand ANTHIM® distribution abroad.”

“At the same time, we continue to expand our biomanufacturing and bioanalytic capabilities. We recently unveiled plans for a new 500,000 square foot commercial/biodefense biomanufacturing facility in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to servicing our own product pipeline, we plan to operate as a full-service Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) to support other biopharma companies. Moreover, we remain on track for the grand opening of our San Antonio facility in Q2/22.”

Mr. Wolf added, “The NightHawk ecosystem is truly unique among small biopharmaceutical companies. We look forward to providing further updates on our progress later this year.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Recognized $0.2 million of grant revenue for qualified expenditures under the CPRIT grant for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to $0.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in grant revenue in the current-year period primarily reflects the expected timing of completion of deliveries under the current phase of the contracts. As of March 31, 2022, we had a grant receivable balance of $1.5 million for CPRIT proceeds not yet received but for which the costs had been incurred or the conditions of the award had been met. We continue our efforts to secure future non-dilutive grant funding to subsidize ongoing research and development costs.Research and development expenses were $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to regulatory consulting and investigator site payments for the ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial for HS-130 as well as unallocated research expenses related to personnel costs, including stock-based compensation from stock awards.General and administrative expense was $3.8 million and $4.8 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. The decrease was due to a decrease in stock-based compensation expense of $2.0 million, partially offset by increased personnel costs of $0.2 million, and increases of $0.3 million for consulting and other professional expenses to manage the business.Net loss attributable to NightHawk Biosciences was approximately $8.1 million, or ($0.32) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to a net loss of approximately $7.5 million, or ($0.31) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021.As of March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $84.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and short term investments.NightHawk Biosciences, Inc.

NEWS -- Heat Biologics (NightHawk Biosciences) Announces that its Elusys Therapeutics Subsidiary has Executed a Contract to Deliver ANTHIM® to the Canadian Government

New contract marks the first international sale of ANTHIM® and follows recent acquisition of Elusys by NightHawk

DURHAM, N.C., April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heat Biologics, Inc. (NYSE American: HTBX) (to be renamed “NightHawk Biosciences”), a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on developing first-in-class therapies to modulate the immune system, today announced to shareholders that its Elusys Therapeutics subsidiary has finalized a contract with the Canadian government to deliver ANTHIM® (obiltoxaximab for injection), a treatment for inhalation anthrax, for use against a potential anthrax attack.

ANTHIM® will be delivered to Canada’s National Emergency Strategic Stockpile under a procurement contract totaling CAD $7.9 million i. The goal of this program is to establish a Canadian supply of Anthim for use as a medical countermeasure against natural and man-made anthrax biothreats.

Jeff Wolf, CEO of Nighthawk and its Elusys subsidiary, commented, “We are excited to announce this first international contract to supply ANTHIM® to Canada, which is particularly timely given the growing global geopolitical uncertainty and emerging threats. This agreement follows our recent acquisition of Elusys, which complements our broader biodefense initiatives. We are focused on expanding sales of ANTHIM®, abroad and this first international contract is an important validation of our strategy.”

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), if a bioterrorist attack were to happen, bacillus anthracis, the bacteria that causes anthrax, would be one of the biological agents most likely to be used, since these spores are easily found in nature, can be produced in a lab, and may remain in the environment for a prolonged period. In recent Congressional testimony, Gerald Parker, Associate Dean of Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, indicated that the top three bioterrorist threats were “anthrax, anthrax, and anthrax.”

Elusys has previously established a successful track record collaborating with U.S. government agencies including the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) and the Department of Defense (DOD). To date, Elusys has been awarded over $400 million in research and development grants, contracts and procurement orders from BARDA and SNS through ongoing, multi-year partnerships with the U.S. government.

This latest award follows NightHawk’s recent announcement of its planned 500,000+ square foot biodefense-focused biologics biomanufacturing facility in Manhattan, Kansas, which is being designed to scale production of ANTHIM®, among other uses.

About ANTHIM®

Anthrax is a life-threatening infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracis. Cases of inhalational anthrax in humans can occur through intentional spread of B. anthracis spores as a biowarfare or bioterrorism agent. B. anthracis spores introduced through the lungs lead to inhalational anthrax, which is deadly in humans.

ANTHIM® (obiltoxaximab for injection) is indicated in adult and pediatric patients for the treatment of inhalational anthrax due to Bacillus anthracis in combination with appropriate antibacterial drugs. ANTHIM® is indicated for post-exposure prophylaxis of inhalational anthrax due to B. anthracis when alternative therapies are not available or not appropriate. The effectiveness of ANTHIM® is based solely on efficacy studies in animal models of inhalational anthrax.

About Elusys Therapeutics

Elusys Therapeutics is focused on the development of antibody therapeutics for the treatment of infectious disease. ANTHIM®(obiltoxaximab), the company’s monoclonal antibody (mAb) anthrax antitoxin, received market clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2016. In July 2020, Health Canada approved ANTHIM’s Extraordinary Use New Drug Submission for the treatment of inhalation anthrax. ANTHIM has also received marketing approved in the E.U. and the U.K., under the trade name of Obiltoxaximab SFL. For more information, please visit https://www.elusys.com.

NEWS -- Scorpion Biological Services Announces New Kansas Commercial Biomanufacturing Facility

MANHATTAN, Kan., April 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Biopharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) Scorpion Biological Services (Scorpion) today announced a planned development partnership with a private developer, the State of Kansas, and local and university affiliates, which will support the construction of a new biodefense-focused large molecule and biologics biomanufacturing facility in Manhattan, Kansas.

The 500,000 sq. ft. commercial biomanufacturing facility will service up to 144,000L cGMP capacity across 48 bioreactors

The $650 million commercial-scale facility, which will service approximately 144,000 liters of biomanufacturing capacity across 48 bioreactors, is being designed for large molecule biologics manufacturing.

The design and engineering of the facility is being led by CRB Group, a nationally recognized firm focused on designing and building biomanufacturing facilities. Realty Trust Group (RTG), a leading healthcare / life sciences real estate advisory and development firm, is serving as the lead developer on the project.

After considering locations in 23 states, the Scorpion leadership team selected Manhattan, Kansas, largely as a result of the city's concentration of biodefense organizations, including Kansas State University's Biosecurity Research Institute (BRI) and the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) — the U.S. government's agricultural biothreat research laboratory. One specific goal of the facility will be to help scale production of ANTHIM®, an antitoxin against anthrax, which could be employed in defense against a potential anthrax attack.

To meet Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and Department of Defense requirements for the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), Scorpion intends to start manufacturing ANTHIM by mid-2024. As such, the company is planning a phased building approach to complete the production train for ANTHIM first –– by April 2024 — with plans to complete a new train every 15 months thereafter. Scorpion projects that the Manhattan facility will be complete, fully functional and staffed by April 2027.

The facility is being designed to be as flexible and versatile as possible. The majority of the facility will be dedicated to commercial CDMO services, but the company is exploring the design of trains focused on other products for the SNS, among others, given that 70% of the drug products in the SNS will expire over the next four years. Where possible, Scorpion plans to use a U.S.-based supply chain, beginning with the decision to install Pall bioreactors.

David Halverson, President of Scorpion, said, "We are very excited to break ground on this new facility. There is a strong demand for world-class biomanufacturing, which we expect to continue well into the future. The 500,000 square foot Manhattan facility is being designed to service up to 144,000 liters across 48 bioreactors –– powered by an excellent Kansas workforce. We're looking forward to rapidly growing and expanding Scorpion, and Manhattan is the perfect location for our newest facility."

Upon completion, Scorpion projects that the facility will have a billion-dollar impact on the State of Kansas, and employ over 500 individuals, largely from the local Kansas talent pool. The company has begun a project to transfer bioprocessing programs from Texas A&M to Kansas State University and the Manhattan Area Technical College at the associate's, bachelor's, and graduate level to help train Scorpion's future workforce.

"We are thrilled and excited that Scorpion has chosen Kansas for this game-changing facility that will have a massive positive impact in our state," said Governor Laura Kelly. "Being in the center of the country, with quick access to either coast, there is no better state for Scorpion to locate in order to address potential threats to public health."

NEWS -- Heat Biologics (“NightHawk Biosciences”) Completes Acquisition of Elusys Therapeutics

Elusys becomes wholly-owned biodefense subsidiary of NightHawkPlans to expand ANTHIM® distribution abroadDURHAM, N.C., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heat Biologics, Inc. (NYSE American: HTBX) (to be renamed “NightHawk Biosciences”), a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on developing first-in-class therapies to modulate the immune system, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Elusys Therapeutics, Inc. a commercial-stage biodefense company and developer of ANTHIM® (obiltoxaximab), a treatment for inhalation anthrax. ANTHIM® is approved for use in the U.S. and Canada, and under the brand name Obiltoxaximab SFL in Europe and the United Kingdom.

Nighthawk acquired all outstanding shares of Elusys, which will continue to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of NightHawk. No stock or warrants were issued in connection with the acquisition, and Elusys had no outstanding term debt.

The strategic acquisition of Elusys significantly expands the Company’s role in the biodefense space, complementing NightHawk’s RapidVax® platform, which is designed to target emerging biological threats. Pursuant to this acquisition, NightHawk also announced it plans to migrate manufacturing of ANTHIM® to its planned 500,000 square foot Scorpion biomanufacturing facility in Manhattan, Kansas, which is being constructed to support development of commercial-scale biologics and large molecules.

To date, Elusys has been awarded over $350 million in research and development grants, contracts and procurement orders from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and the U. S. Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). Through ongoing, multi-year partnerships with the U.S. government, Elusys has been supplying ANTHIM® to the SNS - the government’s repository of critical medical supplies for biodefense preparedness.

Jeff Wolf, CEO of NightHawk, commented, “We are excited to announce the closing of this transformative acquisition, which provides us with a solid foothold in the biodefense space. Elusys has an established a successful track record collaborating with U.S. government agencies including BARDA, NIH, SNS and DOD. We plan to leverage Elusys’ existing relationships and distribution channels as a launching pad for RapidVax®, our “plug and play” platform designed for rapid development and delivery of new vaccines. In addition, we look forward to leveraging our new Kansas facility, which will enable us to manufacture these therapies internally and therefore benefit from significant operating synergies, as well as enhanced oversight, quality control, and speed to market. We are also exploring opportunities to expand ANTHIM® distribution abroad. This transaction is perfectly aligned with our overall vision to establish a fully-integrated ecosystem to deliver medical innovations faster, better, and more efficiently.”

David Lasseter, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction, and a member of NightHawk’s Biothreat Advisory Board, commented, “This transaction is extremely timely, given the global uncertainty and unprecedented threats from foreign nations and rogue actors. Anthrax is one of the most significant biological warfare threats facing our country, with real potential for mass casualties. ANTHIM® represents a key medical countermeasure for the treatment of inhalation Anthrax.”

A special committee of Heat’s Board of Directors negotiated and approved the transaction and Cassel Salpeter & Co. provided a fairness opinion in connection with the transaction. Blank Rome LLP acted as legal counsel to Heat. Elusys was advised by RBC Capital Markets, LLC. Additional details on the transaction are outlined in Company’s Form 8-K, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and will be available on the Company’s website.

About ANTHIM

Anthrax is a life-threatening infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracis. Cases of inhalational anthrax in humans can occur through intentional spread of B. anthracis spores as a biowarfare or bioterrorism agent. B. anthracis spores introduced through the lungs lead to inhalational anthrax, which is deadly in humans.

ANTHIM is a monoclonal antibody that binds to the protective antigen (PA) component of anthrax toxin. ANTHIM’s toxin neutralizing activity prevents entry of anthrax toxin into susceptible cells, avoiding further spread of the toxin throughout the body and the ensuing tissue damage that leads to death. ANTHIM is supplied as single-dose vials for IV infusion.

Indications and Usage

ANTHIM is indicated in adult and pediatric patients for the treatment of inhalational anthrax due to Bacillus anthracis in combination with appropriate antibacterial drugs, and for prophylaxis of inhalational anthrax when alternative therapies are not available or are not appropriate. ANTHIM should only be used for prophylaxis when its benefit for prevention of inhalational anthrax outweighs the risk of hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis. The effectiveness of ANTHIM is based solely on efficacy studies in animal models of inhalational anthrax. There have been no studies of the safety or pharmacokinetics (PK) of ANTHIM in the pediatric population. Dosing in pediatric patients was derived using a population PK approach. ANTHIM does not have direct antibacterial activity. ANTHIM should be used in combination with appropriate antibacterial drugs. ANTHIM is not expected to cross the blood-brain barrier and does not prevent or treat meningitis.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Including BOXED WARNING

WARNING: HYPERSENSITIVITY and ANAPHYLAXIS
Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been reported during ANTHIM infusion. ANTHIM should be administered in monitored settings by personnel trained and equipped to manage anaphylaxis. Stop ANTHIM infusion immediately and treat appropriately if hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis occurs.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis have been reported during the IV infusion of ANTHIM. Due to the risk of hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis, ANTHIM should be administered in monitored settings by personnel trained and equipped to manage anaphylaxis. Monitor individuals who receive ANTHIM closely for signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions throughout the infusion and for a period of time after administration. Stop ANTHIM infusion immediately and treat appropriately if hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis occurs. Pre-medication with diphenhydramine is recommended prior to administration of ANTHIM. Diphenhydramine pre-medication does not prevent anaphylaxis and may mask or delay onset of symptoms of hypersensitivity.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The safety of ANTHIM has been studied only in healthy volunteers. It has not been studied in patients with inhalational anthrax. The most frequently reported adverse reactions were headache, pruritus, infections of the upper respiratory tract, cough, vessel puncture site bruise, infusion site swelling, urticaria, nasal congestion, infusion site pain, and pain in extremity.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pediatric Use: There have been no studies of the safety or PK of ANTHIM in the pediatric population.
