Overview


We're a clinical-stage biotechnology firm leveraging a deep understanding of
immunobiology to develop novel therapeutics to deal with extreme autoimmune and
inflammatory, or immuno-inflammatory, issues with excessive unmet medical want.
Our technique is concentrated on advancing the scientific improvement of our product
candidates, together with probably pursuing extra indications and buying
new product candidates and platforms to broaden our pipeline. We intend to
commercialize our product candidates both independently or by means of
partnerships or in any other case monetize our pipeline by means of strategic transactions.

Our preliminary product candidate, itolizumab (EQ001), is a clinical-stage,
first-in-class monoclonal antibody that selectively targets the novel immune
checkpoint receptor CD6. CD6 performs a central function within the modulation of effector
T cell, or Teff cell, exercise and trafficking, which drives a variety of
immuno-inflammatory illnesses throughout a number of therapeutic areas. Subsequently, we
imagine itolizumab (EQ001) might have broad therapeutic utility in treating a
giant and numerous set of extreme immuno-inflammatory illnesses.

In February 2022, we expanded our pipeline of novel immunomodulatory drug
candidates, including two first-in-class scientific stage belongings, EQ101 and EQ102,
previously often called BNZ-1 and BNZ-2, respectively, and a proprietary product
discovery platform, by means of the acquisition of Bioniz Therapeutics, Inc., or
Bioniz, a privately held, scientific stage biotechnology firm. Lead belongings
acquired, EQ101 and EQ102, are particular multi-cytokine inhibitors of key
disease-driving, clinically validated cytokine targets aimed toward addressing unmet
wants throughout a variety of immune-inflammatory indications. EQ101 is a first-in
class, selective, tri-specific inhibitor of IL-2, IL-9 and IL-15, and EQ102 is a
first-in class, selective, bi-specific inhibitor of IL-15 and IL-21.

This novel and differentiated pipeline of first-in-class immunology belongings has
the potential to deal with unmet medical wants in quite a few areas, together with
transplant science, hematology, dermatology, gastroenterology, rheumatology,
oncology and pulmonology.

We're centered on creating itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102 as potential
best-in-class, illness modifying therapies for a number of extreme
immuno-inflammatory issues and at present have lively scientific improvement
packages with all three belongings.

The EQUATE research is a Part 1b scientific research of itolizumab (EQ001) as a
first-line remedy concomitant with steroids for the remedy of acute
graft-versus-host illness, or aGVHD. On this research we're assessing security,
pharmacokinetics, or PK, pharmacodynamics, or PD, and a variety of scientific
outcomes together with full response price, general response price, survival and
steroid taper. In June 2021, we introduced constructive topline outcomes from 20
sufferers within the research, and in December 2021 on the annual assembly of the
American Society of Hematology we reported extra knowledge from a complete of 25
sufferers handled with itolizumab (EQ001) at doses of 0.4, 0.8 or 1.6 mg/kg.

In March 2022, we initiated the EQUATOR research, a pivotal Part 3 scientific research
of itolizumab (EQ001) in sufferers with aGVHD. The randomized, double-blind research
will assess the efficacy and security of itolizumab (EQ001) versus placebo as a
first-line remedy for aGVHD together with corticosteroids.

                                       17
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The EQUALISE research is a Part 1b proof-of-concept scientific research of itolizumab
(EQ001) in sufferers with systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE, and in sufferers
with lupus nephritis, or LN. The finished Kind A portion of the research was a
a number of ascending-dose trial involving 35 SLE sufferers to judge the protection,
tolerability, PK, PD, and scientific exercise of subcutaneous or SC doses of
itolizumab (EQ001) each two weeks (Q2W). The continuing Kind B portion of the
research is evaluating as much as 20 newly recognized or refractory LN sufferers who will
be handled with itolizumab (EQ001) dosed at 1.6 mg/kg SC Q2W for as much as 24 weeks.
In March 2021, we reported favorable topline knowledge from the Kind A gaggle of the
EQUALISE research in sufferers with SLE. In September 2022, we introduced interim
outcomes from the Kind B LN portion of the research the place itolizumab (EQ001)
demonstrated clinically significant responses in extremely proteinuric topics.

The EQUIP research was a Part 1b scientific research of itolizumab (EQ001) in sufferers
with uncontrolled bronchial asthma that was accomplished within the fourth quarter of 2021 and
met its major goal to know the protection and tolerability of
itolizumab (EQ001) in bronchial asthma sufferers. Nonetheless, because of the continued
pandemic and related challenges conducting bronchial asthma trials, we determined to
prioritize our scientific improvement efforts of itolizumab (EQ001) in our ongoing
packages in aGVHD and lupus/lupus nephritis and will probably be reassessing our
potential future improvement technique in bronchial asthma.

In September 2022, we initiated a Part 1 research of EQ102 in wholesome volunteers
in Australia. The only ascending dose/a number of ascending dose (SAD/MAD) research
is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research of EQ102 administered
subcutaneously as single or a number of doses in as much as 64 wholesome volunteers. The
major endpoint of the research is to evaluate the protection and tolerability of EQ102,
with secondary endpoints of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modifications, after
single and a number of ascending doses. Following the SAD/MAD portion of this research
we plan to judge the organic exercise of EQ102 in topics with celiac
illness.

In November 2022, we initiated a Part 2 open-label research of EQ101 in topics
with alopecia areata in Australia. The research will consider the protection,
tolerability, and efficacy of EQ101 administered intravenously as soon as per week at
a dose of two mg/kg over a 24-week remedy interval.

We've ongoing translational biology packages to evaluate the therapeutic utility
of itolizumab (EQ001) in extra indications the place CD6 and its ligand,
activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule, or ALCAM, play an vital function in
the pathogenesis of T cell mediated illnesses. As well as, by means of the
acquisition of Bioniz, we now even have a proprietary product discovery platform
that we are able to leverage to design novel peptides to focus on and inhibit a number of
cytokines which might be concerned in validated organic and illness pathways. Our
number of present and future indications is pushed by our evaluation of the
scientific, translational, scientific and business rationale for advancing our
product candidates into additional improvement.

Since our inception, considerably all of our efforts have been centered on
organizing and staffing our firm, enterprise planning, elevating capital,
in-licensing rights to itolizumab (EQ001), conducting non-clinical analysis,
submitting three INDs, conducting pre-clinical and scientific improvement of
itolizumab (EQ001), conducting enterprise improvement actions such because the
acquisition of Bioniz in February 2022 and the deliberate merger with Metacrine,
Inc., introduced in September 2022, initiating scientific research of EQ101 and
EQ102, and the final and administrative actions related to working a
public firm. Moreover, in reference to the acquisition of Bioniz, we
have expanded our pipeline from one product candidate to 3 product
candidates, all at varied levels of improvement. This enlargement might speed up
the speed at which our working losses enhance as we incur prices to additional the
improvement and search regulatory approval for these product candidates. We've
not generated any income from product gross sales or in any other case. Since inception, we
have primarily financed our operations by means of our preliminary public providing, or
IPO, a follow-on public providing, a registered direct providing, non-public
placements of convertible promissory notes, time period loans and gross sales of our widespread
inventory by means of "at-the-market" gross sales agreements, or ATM choices, with Jefferies
LLC, or Jefferies. We've incurred losses since our inception. For the 9
months ended September 30, 2022, our internet loss was $65.2 million. As of September
30, 2022, we had an amassed deficit of $175.2 million. Considerably all of
our working losses resulted from bills incurred in reference to our
analysis and improvement actions, non-clinical and scientific actions and
basic and administrative prices related to our operations.

We anticipate to proceed to incur vital bills and rising losses into
the foreseeable future. We anticipate our bills will enhance considerably
as we advance our analysis and improvement actions, together with the continued and
future scientific improvement of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102, probably
broaden the indications during which we conduct scientific improvement of itolizumab
(EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102, probably purchase extra merchandise and/or product
candidates, search regulatory approval for and probably commercialize any
permitted product candidates, rent extra personnel, defend our mental
property, incur rising expense related to our excellent debt, and
incur basic company prices. We anticipate that our present money, money
equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2022, along with
the extra money anticipated to be acquired with the closing of the proposed
merger with Metacrine, will allow us to fund our operations for a minimum of the
subsequent 12 months.

There's a threat that the merger with Metacrine doesn't shut or that it does
not shut in a well timed method or with enough internet money. In any such occasion, we
would intensify our efforts to lift extra capital by means of different financing
sources as a way to fund our at present deliberate improvement packages. Such different
potential sources of capital embody our present dedicated fairness line, ATM
facility and/or improvement funding from potential future companions. Relying on
the timing and extent to which we're in a position to elevate
                                       18
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


extra capital, operational modifications, together with probably scaling again,
delaying, or stopping a number of of its improvement packages and downsizing the
group accordingly, could also be essential to protect money and keep
solvency for 12 months from the date of this submitting.

We don't anticipate to generate any revenues from product gross sales until and till we
efficiently full improvement and procure regulatory approval for itolizumab
(EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102 or any future product candidate, which is unlikely to
occur inside the subsequent 12 months, if ever. Accordingly, till such time as we
can generate vital income from gross sales of our product candidates, if ever,
we anticipate to finance our money wants by means of a mix of fairness choices,
debt financings, and collaboration and license agreements. Nonetheless, we might not
be capable of safe extra financing or enter into such different preparations in
a well timed method or on favorable phrases, if in any respect. On account of the COVID-19
pandemic and actions taken to gradual its unfold, the worldwide credit score and monetary
markets have skilled excessive volatility, together with diminished liquidity and
credit score availability, declines in client confidence, declines in financial
development, will increase in unemployment charges and uncertainty about financial
stability. There will be no assurance that additional deterioration in credit score and
monetary markets and confidence in financial circumstances won't happen. If
fairness and credit score markets deteriorate, it could make any needed debt or fairness
financing harder to acquire, extra pricey and/or extra dilutive. In
addition, topic to restricted exceptions, our mortgage and safety settlement with
Oxford Finance LLC and Silicon Valley Financial institution additionally prohibits us from incurring
indebtedness with out the prior written consent of the lenders, which consent might
be withheld at their sole and absolute discretion. Our failure to lift capital
or enter into such different preparations when wanted would have a unfavorable impression
on our monetary situation and will pressure us to delay, scale back or terminate our
analysis and improvement packages or different operations, or grant rights to
develop and market product candidates that we might in any other case desire to develop
and market ourselves.

Proposed Acquisition

On September 6, 2022, we entered right into a definitive settlement to amass
Metacrine, Inc., or Metacrine, pursuant to an Settlement and Plan of Merger, as
amended on October 26, 2022, or the Merger Settlement. Metacrine is a
clinical-stage biopharmaceutical firm at present centered on discovering and
creating differentiated therapies for sufferers with gastrointestinal illnesses.
Below the phrases and circumstances of the Merger Settlement, on the closing of the
proposed transaction stockholders of Metacrine will obtain for every share of
Metacrine widespread inventory held by such stockholder (i) a portion of a share of
Equillium widespread inventory equal to the change ratio, or the Change Ratio,
decided by dividing (x) (a) 125% of Metacrine's internet money as of the closing of
the merger, or the Upfront Merger Consideration, by (b) the worth per share of
Equillium widespread inventory decided based mostly on the ten day buying and selling quantity weighted
common value per share of Equillium widespread inventory calculated 10 buying and selling days
previous to the deadline of the merger, offered that in no occasion will the
value per share of Equillium widespread inventory be lower than $2.70 or higher than
$4.50, or the Equillium Inventory Value, by (y) the mixture absolutely diluted shares
of Metacrine, or Metacrine's Closing Capitalization, plus (ii) any money payable
in lieu of fractional shares of Equillium's widespread inventory. The Change Ratio
won't mirror modifications out there value of Metacrine widespread inventory and can
not mirror modifications out there value of Equillium widespread inventory, besides that
the Change Ratio will mirror the 10-day buying and selling quantity weighted common value
per share of Equillium widespread inventory calculated 10 buying and selling days previous to the
deadline of the merger. The transaction is anticipated to shut by the top of
2022 or early 2023. Throughout the 9 months ended September 30, 2022, we incurred
$0.6 million in bills associated to this proposed transaction. If consummated,
the acquisition of Metacrine could have a big impression on our liquidity,
monetary situation and outcomes of operations. Except in any other case famous, the
following dialogue and evaluation of our outcomes of operations and our liquidity
and capital assets focuses on our present operations unique of the impression
of the proposed acquisition of Metacrine. Any forward-looking statements
contained herein don't take into consideration the impression of such proposed
acquisition. See Word 10 to our condensed consolidated monetary statements and
the preliminary joint proxy assertion/prospectus filed with our registration
assertion on Type S-4 with the United States Securities and Change Fee,
or SEC, on October 27, 2022 (File no. 333-268024) for added data
relating to the proposed transaction with Metacrine.

Monetary Overview

Income


We at present don't have any merchandise permitted on the market, and we've got not generated any
revenues so far. Sooner or later, we might generate income from collaboration or
license agreements we might enter into with respect to our product candidates, as
effectively as product gross sales from any permitted product, which approval is unlikely to
occur inside the subsequent 12 months, if ever. Our means to generate product
revenues will rely upon the profitable improvement and eventual
commercialization of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102 and any future product
candidates. If we fail to finish the event of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101
and EQ102 or any future product candidates in a well timed method, or to acquire
regulatory approval for our product candidates, our means to generate future
income and our outcomes of operations and monetary place can be materially
adversely affected.

Analysis and Growth Bills


Analysis and improvement bills primarily include prices related to the
non-clinical analysis and scientific improvement of our product candidates. Our
analysis and improvement bills embody:

nonrefundable advance funds for items and companies that will probably be utilized in
future analysis and improvement actions as bills when the service has been
carried out or when the products have been acquired.

Our direct analysis and improvement bills consist principally of exterior
prices, equivalent to charges paid to CROs and consultants in reference to our
non-clinical analysis and scientific improvement.


We acknowledge the Australian Analysis and Growth Tax Incentive, or the Tax
Incentive, as a discount of analysis and improvement expense. The quantities are
decided based mostly on our eligible analysis and improvement expenditures and are
non-refundable, offered that as a way to qualify for the Tax Incentive the
submitting entity will need to have income of lower than AUD $20.0 million throughout the tax
12 months for which a reimbursement declare is made and can't be managed by an
earnings tax exempt entity. The Tax Incentive is acknowledged when there's
cheap assurance that the Tax Incentive will probably be acquired, the related
expenditure has been incurred, and the quantity will be reliably measured or
reliably estimated.

We plan to considerably enhance our analysis and improvement bills for the
foreseeable future as we advance the event of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101
and EQ102 and probably broaden the variety of indications for which we're
creating these product candidates. The profitable improvement of itolizumab
(EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102 is very unsure. Presently, because of the
inherently unpredictable nature of pre-clinical and scientific improvement, which
has been additional exacerbated by the unsure magnitude, extent and period of
impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can't fairly estimate the
nature, timing or prices of the efforts that will probably be needed to finish the
the rest of the event of our product candidates or the interval, if any, in
which materials internet money inflows from our product candidates might start.
Scientific improvement timelines, the likelihood of success, and improvement
prices can differ materially from expectations.

Completion of scientific trials might take a number of years or extra, and the size of
time typically varies in keeping with the kind, complexity, novelty, and supposed
use of a product candidate. The price of scientific trials might differ considerably
over the lifetime of a undertaking because of variations arising throughout scientific
improvement, together with, amongst others:

managing the impression of COVID-19 pandemic and associated precautions on the
operation of our scientific trials;

per affected person scientific trial prices;

the variety of scientific trials required for approval;

                                       20
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the variety of websites and the variety of international locations included in our scientific trials;

the size of time required to enroll appropriate sufferers;

the inefficiencies and extra prices associated to any delays and potential
restarts of scientific trials;

the variety of doses that sufferers obtain;

the variety of sufferers that take part in our scientific trials;

the drop-out or discontinuation charges of sufferers in our scientific trials;

the period of affected person follow-up;

potential extra security monitoring or different research requested by regulatory
companies;

the quantity and complexity of procedures, analyses and checks carried out throughout our
scientific trials;

The Time period Mortgage matures on June 1, 2024, or the Maturity Date, and is repaid
by means of interest-only funds, which initially prolonged by means of June 30, 2021,
adopted by 36 equal month-to-month funds of principal and curiosity. The Time period Mortgage

Funding Necessities


We anticipate our bills to extend considerably in reference to our ongoing
and future actions, significantly as we advance and broaden our scientific
improvement of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102, together with potential new
indications. We anticipate that our major makes use of of capital will probably be for scientific
analysis and improvement companies, non-clinical analysis, manufacturing,
regulatory compliance, authorized and different enterprise improvement bills,
compensation and associated bills, threat administration, and basic overhead prices.

We anticipate that our present money, money equivalents and short-term investments as
of September 30, 2022, along with the extra money anticipated to be acquired
with the closing of the proposed merger with Metacrine, will allow us to fund
our operations for a minimum of the subsequent 12 months. We've based mostly this estimate on
assumptions which will show to be mistaken, and we might use our capital assets
earlier than we anticipate. Moreover, our working plans might change, and we might
want extra funds earlier than deliberate. Moreover, the method of testing
product candidates in scientific trials is dear, and the timing of progress in
these trials is unsure. As a result of the end result of those efforts is unsure, we
can't estimate the precise quantities essential to efficiently full the
improvement and commercialization of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101 and EQ102 or any
of our different product candidates, or whether or not, or when, we might obtain
profitability.

There's a threat that the merger with Metacrine doesn't shut or that it does
not shut in a well timed method or with enough internet money. In any such occasion, we
would intensify our efforts to lift extra capital by means of different financing
sources as a way to fund our at present

                                       24
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

deliberate improvement packages. Such different potential sources of capital embody
our present dedicated fairness line, ATM facility and/or improvement funding from
potential future companions. Relying on the timing and extent to which we're
in a position to elevate extra capital, operational modifications, together with probably
scaling again, delaying, or stopping a number of of its improvement packages and
downsizing the group accordingly, could also be essential to protect money and
keep solvency for 12 months from the date of this submitting.

Our future capital necessities will rely upon many components, together with:

the initiation, progress, timing, prices and outcomes of our ongoing and future
scientific trials of itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101, EQ102 and different product
candidates, together with as such actions could also be adversely impacted by the
ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and evolving battle in Ukraine;

the quantity and scope of indications we determine to pursue for the event of
our product candidates;

the fee, timing and consequence of regulatory assessment of any Biologics License
Software, or BLA, we might submit for our product candidates;

the prices and timing of producing itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101, EQ102 and different
product candidates;

the prices of making ready, submitting and prosecuting patent purposes, sustaining
and imposing our mental property rights and defending mental
property-related claims;

our efforts to reinforce operational programs and our means to draw, rent and
retain certified personnel, together with personnel to assist the event of
our product candidates;

the prices related to being a public firm;

our means to enter into partnerships or in any other case monetize our pipeline
by means of strategic transactions on a well timed foundation, on phrases which might be favorable to
us, or in any respect;

the phrases and timing of building and sustaining collaborations, licenses
and different related preparations;

the extent to which we purchase or in-license different product candidates and
applied sciences;

the authorized and different transactional prices related to our enterprise improvement
actions; and

the fee related to commercializing itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101, EQ102 or any
of our different product candidates, if permitted for business sale.


Till such time as we are able to generate substantial product revenues, if ever, we
anticipate to finance our money wants by means of a mix of fairness choices, debt
financings, and collaboration and license agreements. The sale of extra
fairness or convertible debt might lead to extra dilution to our
stockholders and the phrases of those securities might embody liquidation or different
preferences that adversely have an effect on the rights of our present widespread
stockholders. The incurrence of debt financing would lead to debt service
obligations and the governing paperwork would seemingly embody working and
financing covenants that will prohibit our operations. On account of the
ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and actions taken to gradual its unfold, and extra
lately with the battle in Ukraine and inflationary pressures on the economic system
and financial coverage responses taken by authorities companies, the worldwide credit score
and monetary markets have skilled excessive volatility, together with diminished
liquidity and credit score availability, declines in client confidence, declines in
financial development, will increase in unemployment charges and uncertainty about financial
stability. There will be no assurance that additional deterioration in credit score and
monetary markets and confidence in financial circumstances won't happen. If
fairness and credit score markets deteriorate, it could make any needed debt or fairness
financing harder to acquire, extra pricey and/or extra dilutive. If we
elevate extra funds by means of collaboration or license agreements, we might have
to relinquish worthwhile rights to our applied sciences, future income streams,
analysis packages or product candidates or grant licenses on phrases that won't
be favorable to us and/or which will scale back the worth of our widespread inventory. If we
are unable to lift capital when wanted or on enticing phrases, we might be
pressured to delay, scale back or remove our analysis and improvement packages or
different operations. Any of those actions might have a fabric impact on our
enterprise, monetary situation and outcomes of operations. We've skilled internet
losses and unfavorable money flows from working actions since our inception and
anticipate to proceed to incur internet losses into the foreseeable future. We had an
amassed deficit of $175.2 million as of September 30, 2022. We anticipate
working losses and unfavorable money flows to proceed for a minimum of the subsequent
a number of years as we proceed to incur prices associated to the event of
itolizumab (EQ001), EQ101, EQ102 and our different product candidates.
