EXPLANATORY NOTE

Lyra Therapeutics, Inc. (the "Company" or "we," "our" or "us") is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A ("Form 10-Q/A") to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC”) on May 10, 2022 (the "Original Form 10-Q"), to amend and restate our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and certain financial information in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. We are also providing an update in our disclosures in Part I, Item 4, "Controls and Procedures,” of this Form 10-Q/A regarding a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting.

Background and Effect of Restatement

On October 26, 2022, the Company, after discussion with its independent registered public accounting firm and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”), concluded that an error was made in the application of revenue recognition for the $5.0 million development milestone achieved in February 2022 under the License and Collaboration Agreement (the “LianBio License Agreement”) with LianBio Inflammatory Limited, which was entered into on May 31, 2021. In connection with the original accounting for the LianBio License Agreement, the Company determined there were two distinct performance obligations: (1) the license to develop and commercialize LYR-210, manufacturing activities related to the clinical supply of LYR-210, and the non-exclusive license to manufacture LYR-210 and obligation to transfer manufacturing technology in the case of a supply failure, and (2) the Company’s performance of the development activities related to the global Phase 3 clinical trial. The correction of this error resulted in a restatement of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and financial data covering the three months ended March 31, 2022 (the "Restated Period”).

The restatement reflects the correction of the immediate recognition as revenue of the $5.0 million development milestone in the quarter ended March 31, 2022 by properly allocating the amount to the two performance obligations and recognizing the allocated amounts in accordance with the revenue recognition model previously developed for each performance obligation. The impact of this misstatement does not impact any other accounts in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations accounts, including its income tax accounts since the Company has not recognized any income tax benefit for its operating losses. The Company has appropriately adjusted certain balance sheet accounts. The correction did not impact the cash position previously disclosed.

Certain balances and accounts in this Form 10-Q/A have been corrected to reflect the appropriate revenue recognition for the LianBio License Agreement. See "Restatement and Significant Accounting Policies" in Note 2 to the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Form 10-Q/A, for more information regarding the impact of correcting this error on the Company's unaudited condensed interim financial statements.

The Audit Committee concluded that the previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and financial data covering the Restated Period contained in the Company’s Original Form 10-Q required restatement and should no longer be relied upon. See the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 26, 2022 for additional details.

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting Considerations

In connection with such restatement, the Company’s management has determined that there were deficiencies in its internal control over financial reporting that constituted a material weakness at March 31, 2022. For a discussion of management’s consideration of its disclosure controls and procedures and the material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting, see Part I, Item 4, "Controls and Procedures,” included in this Form 10-Q/A.

Items Amended in this Form 10-Q/A

For the convenience of the reader, this Form 10-Q/A amends and restates the Original Form 10-Q in its entirety. The following items included in the Original Form 10-Q are amended by this Form 10-Q/A:

• Part I, Item 1 - Financial Statements

• Part I, Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

• Part I, Item 4 - Controls and Procedures

• Part II, Item 1A - Risk Factors

 


• Part II, Item 6 - Exhibits

This report on Form 10-Q/A is presented as of the filing date of the Original Form 10-Q and does not reflect events occurring after that date, nor modifies or updates the information contained therein other than as required to correct the error and record the adjustment described above to correct the allocation of previously identified constrained amounts of the transaction price to the two performance obligations related to the LianBio License Agreement. Accordingly, this Form 10-Q/A should be read in conjunction with the Company’s filings with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original Form 10-Q.

As required by Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, currently dated certifications by the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer are included in Part II, Item 6. “Exhibits” and attached as Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1 and 32.2 to this Form 10-Q/A.

 

 


 

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A contains forward-looking statements. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A are forward-looking statements, including but not limited to statements regarding:

our plans to develop and commercialize our product candidates;
the timing of our ongoing or planned clinical trials for LYR-210, LYR-220, and any future product candidates;
the timing of and our ability to obtain and maintain regulatory approvals for LYR-210, LYR-220, and any future product candidates;
the clinical utility of our product candidates;
our commercialization, marketing, and manufacturing capabilities and strategy;
our expectations about the willingness of healthcare professionals to use LYR-210, LYR-220, and any future product candidates;
our expectations regarding the development and commercialization of LYR-210 pursuant to the terms of the LianBio License Agreement (as defined below);
our intellectual property position;
our competitive position and developments and projections relating to our competitors or our industry;
our ability to identify, recruit, and retain key personnel;
the impact of laws and regulations;
risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, which may adversely impact our business and clinical trials;
our expectations regarding the time during which we will be an emerging growth company under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or the JOBS Act;
our plans to identify additional product candidates with significant commercial potential that are consistent with our commercial objectives;
our estimates and statements regarding our future revenue, future results of operations, and financial position;
our remediation of a material weakness;
our business strategy;
our research and development costs; and
the plans and objectives of management for future operations.

These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

 


In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “could,” “intend,” “target,” “project,” “contemplate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “would” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A are only predictions and are based largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, including those described under the sections in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A. Because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified and some of which are beyond our control, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The events and circumstances reflected in our forward-looking statements may not be achieved or occur and actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.

Moreover, we operate in an evolving environment. New risk factors and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all risk factors and uncertainties. You should read this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A and the documents that we reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We qualify all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements. Except as required by applicable law, we do not plan to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements contained herein, whether as a result of any new information, future events, changed circumstances, or otherwise.

Unless the context requires otherwise, we use the terms “Lyra,” “the Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” and similar designations in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A to refer to Lyra Therapeutics, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Lyra Therapeutics Securities Corporation.

 


Summary Risk Factors

Our business is subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including those described in Part II, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A. You should carefully consider these risks and uncertainties when investing in our common stock. The principal risks and uncertainties affecting our business include the following:

we identified a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting that resulted in a restatement of our unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022. This material weakness, if not remediated, could adversely affect our business, our stock price and our ability to report our results of operations and financial condition accurately and in a timely manner;
we have a limited operating history and a history of escalating operating losses, which may make it difficult to evaluate the prospects for our future viability;
we have incurred significant losses since inception and expect to incur significant additional losses for the foreseeable future. We may never achieve profitability;
we will need significant additional funding in order to complete development of and obtain regulatory approval for our product candidates and commercialize our products, if approved. If we are unable to raise capital when needed, we could be forced to delay, reduce, or eliminate our product development programs or commercialization efforts;
our business is highly dependent on the success of our most advanced product candidate, LYR-210, which will require significant additional clinical testing before we can seek regulatory approval and potentially launch commercial sales. If LYR-210 does not receive regulatory approval or is not successfully commercialized, or is significantly delayed in doing so, our business will be harmed;
managing our obligations under our license and other strategic agreements may divert management time and attention, causing delays or disruptions to our business;
our operating activities may be restricted by certain covenants in our license and strategic agreements, which could limit our development and commercial opportunities;
failure to obtain marketing approval in international jurisdictions would prevent our products from being marketed in such jurisdictions;
we have entered into a collaboration, and may enter into collaborations, that place the development and commercialization of our product candidates outside our control, require us to relinquish important rights or may otherwise be on terms unfavorable to us, and if our collaborations are not successful, our product candidates may not reach their full market potential;
clinical trials required for our product candidates are expensive and time-consuming, their outcome is uncertain, and if our clinical trials do not meet safety or efficacy endpoints in these evaluations, or if we experience significant delays in these trials, our ability to commercialize our product candidates and our financial position will be impaired;
developments by competitors may render our products or technologies obsolete or non-competitive or may reduce the size of our markets;
the successful commercialization of our product candidates will depend in part on the extent to which governmental authorities and health insurers establish coverage, adequate reimbursement levels and pricing policies. Failure to obtain or maintain coverage and adequate reimbursement for our product candidates, if approved, could limit our ability to market those products and decrease our ability to generate revenue;
even if either LYR-210 or LYR-220 receives marketing approval, it may fail to achieve market acceptance by physicians, patients, third-party payors or others in the medical community necessary for commercial success;
we will rely on third parties for the manufacture of materials for our research programs, pre-clinical studies and clinical trials and we do not have long-term contracts with any of these parties. This reliance on third parties increases the risk that we will not have sufficient quantities of such materials, product candidates, or any therapies that we may

 


develop and commercialize, or that such supply will not be available to us at an acceptable cost, which could delay, prevent, or impair our development or commercialization efforts;
we rely on third parties to conduct our pre-clinical studies and clinical trials. Any failure by a third party to conduct the clinical trials according to GCPs and in a timely manner may delay or prevent our ability to seek or obtain regulatory approval for or commercialize our product candidates;
if we are unable to obtain, maintain, or adequately protect our intellectual property rights, we may not be able to compete effectively in our markets;
if we lose key management or scientific personnel, cannot recruit qualified employees, directors, officers, or other significant personnel, or experience increases in our compensation costs, our business may materially suffer; and
the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has disrupted and may continue to adversely impact our business and operations, including our clinical trials.

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

Lyra Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) is a clinical-stage therapeutics company focused on the development and commercialization of novel integrated drug and delivery solutions for the localized treatment of patients with ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) diseases. The Company’s proprietary technology platform, XTreo, is designed to precisely and consistently deliver medicines directly to the affected tissue for sustained periods with a single administration. The Company’s initial product candidates, LYR-210 and LYR-220, are bioresorbable polymeric matrices designed to be administered in a brief, non-invasive, in-office procedure and intended to deliver up to six months of continuous drug therapy to the sinonasal passages for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (“CRS”). The Company was incorporated as a Delaware corporation on November 21, 2005 and is located in Watertown, Massachusetts.

The Company is subject to risks common to companies in the therapeutics and pharmaceutical industry, including but not limited to, risks of failure of preclinical studies and clinical trials, the need to obtain marketing approval for any drug product candidate that it may identify and develop, the need to successfully commercialize and gain market acceptance of its product candidates, dependence on key personnel, protection of proprietary technology, compliance with government regulations, development by competitors of technological innovations, reliance on third party manufacturers, ability to transition from pilot-scale manufacturing to large-scale production of products and the need to obtain adequate additional financing to fund the development of its product candidates.

From inception through March 31, 2022, the Company has raised an aggregate of $249.1 million to fund its operations, of which $162.1 million were gross proceeds from sales of its redeemable convertible preferred stock, $57.3 million were net proceeds from its initial public offering, $16.8 million were gross proceeds from government contracts and $12.0 million were gross proceeds from its license and collaboration agreement. The Company has incurred recurring net losses since inception and had net losses of approximately $11.9 million and $7.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. In addition, the Company has an accumulated deficit of approximately $205.3 million at March 31, 2022. The Company expects to continue to generate operating losses for the foreseeable future. At March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $33.8 million of cash and cash equivalents.

The Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022, along with the approximately $100.5 million of gross proceeds from its April 2022 financing (described in further detail below in Note 6), will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operating plan for a period of at least one year from the issuance date of the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company will need additional financing to support its continuing operations and pursue its growth strategy. Until such time as the Company can generate significant revenue from product sales, if ever, it expects to finance its operations through a combination of equity or debt financings, collaboration agreements, strategic alliances and licensing arrangements. The Company may be unable to raise additional funds or enter into such other agreements when needed on favorable terms or at all. The inability to obtain funding as and when needed would have a negative impact on the Company’s financial condition and ability to pursue its business strategies. If the Company is unable to obtain funding when needed, the Company could be forced to delay, reduce or eliminate some or all of its research and development programs, product portfolio expansion or commercialization efforts, which could adversely affect its business prospects, or the Company may be unable to continue operations. The Company will need to generate significant revenue to achieve profitability, and it may never do so.

COVID-19 Pandemic and CARES Act

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the United States and global economies and may affect the Company’s operations and those of third parties on which the Company relies, including by causing disruptions in the supply of the Company’s product candidates and the conduct of current and future clinical trials. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic may affect the operations of the Food and Drug Administration and other health authorities, which could result in delays of reviews and approvals, including with respect to the Company’s product candidates. In light of developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company discontinued enrollment at 67 patients in its Phase 2 LANTERN clinical trial and did not enroll patients in the United States. Additionally, while the economic impact brought by, and the duration of, the COVID-19 pandemic is difficult to assess or predict, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global financial markets may reduce the Company’s ability to access capital, which could negatively impact the Company’s short-term and long-term liquidity. The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is highly uncertain and subject to change, including the length of time needed to vaccinate a significant segment of the global population and effectiveness of the vaccines with respect to the new variants of the virus. The Company does not yet know the full extent of potential delays or impacts on its business, financing or clinical trial activities or on healthcare systems or the global economy as a whole. However, these effects could have a material impact on the Company’s liquidity, capital resources, operations and business and those of the third parties on which the Company relies.

On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.” The CARES Act, among other things, includes provisions relating to refundable payroll tax credits, deferment of employer side social security payments, net operating loss carryback periods, alternative minimum tax credit refunds, modifications to the net interest deduction limitations, increased limitations on qualified charitable contributions, and technical corrections to tax depreciation methods for qualified improvement property. The Company deferred the employer side social security payments of which 50% were due on December 31, 2021 and the remainder on December 31, 2022. The CARES Act also appropriated funds for the SBA Paycheck Protection Program loans that are forgivable in certain situations to promote continued employment, as well as Economic Injury Disaster Loans to provide liquidity to small businesses harmed by COVID-19. On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 was signed into law in order to provide further stimulus and support to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company did not obtain funding from such loans. The Company does not believe the CARES Act or the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 will have a material impact on its financial condition, results of operations, or liquidity.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Any reference in these notes to applicable guidance is meant to refer to the authoritative United States generally accepted accounting principles as found in the Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) and Accounting Standards Updates (“ASU”) of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited annual financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement 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 and 2021. 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 the audited financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021, and the notes thereto, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 9, 2022.

2. Restatement and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Restatement

The Company has restated its previously reported unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022 to correct an error related to revenue that was incorrectly recognized. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, correcting this error increased the Company’s net loss by $4.9 million.

As discussed in Note 9, the Company entered into the LianBio License Agreement and received an upfront payment of $12.0 million and is eligible to receive up to $135.0 million in future payments based upon the achievement of specified development, regulatory and commercialization milestones. In the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company achieved a development

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements — Continued

(unaudited)

 

milestone of $5.0 million for dosing the first patient in its global Phase 3 clinical trial. At the time the milestone was achieved, the Company recognized the entire $5.0 million as revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2022.

In connection with the third quarter 2022 financial statement close process, the Company determined that the $5.0 million development milestone should have been allocated to the performance obligations previously identified in the LianBio License Agreement and the allocated amounts should have been recognized under the revenue recognition model previously developed for each performance obligation.

The error in the recognition of the milestone amount was a result of the Company misapplying the provisions of ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, in accounting for the achievement of the milestone.

As a result of the restatement, the Company has made adjustments to present the corrected amount of collaboration revenue as a reduction to revenue previously recognized in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss and as an increase in deferred revenue in the accompanying March 31, 2022 condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Set forth below are the adjustments to the Company’s previously issued unaudited statements of operations and comprehensive loss and unaudited balance sheet for the period affected by the restatement. The restatement adjustments did not affect the net cash used in operating activities in the Company’s statements of cash flows.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 9, 2022. Since the date of those financial statements, there have been no changes to its significant accounting policies except as noted below.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, the Company’s management evaluates its estimates, which include but are not limited to management’s judgments of revenue recognition, operating lease right-of-use assets, operating lease liabilities, accrued

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements — Continued

expenses, valuation of share-based awards and deferred income taxes. Due to the uncertainty inherent in such estimates, actual results may differ from these estimates.

Restricted Cash

The Company had restricted cash of approximately $0.3 million as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, which was held in certificates of deposit at the Company’s financial institution to secure the Company’s letter of credit for its facility lease.

Concentrations of Credit Risk and Off-Balance Sheet Risk

Financial instruments that potentially expose the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents. The Company maintains all its cash and cash equivalents at a single accredited financial institution, in amounts that exceed federally insured limits.

The Company has no significant off-balance sheet risk such as foreign exchange contracts, option contracts, or other foreign exchange hedging arrangements.

Revenue Recognition

Under ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”), an entity recognizes revenue when its customer obtains control of promised goods or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration that the entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. To determine revenue recognition for arrangements that an entity determines are within the scope of ASC 606, the entity performs the following five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with a customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price, including variable consideration, if any; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. The Company only applies the five-step model to contracts when it is probable that the entity will collect the consideration to which it is entitled in exchange for the goods or services it transfers to the customer.

Once a contract is determined to be within the scope of ASC 606, the Company assesses the goods or services promised within each contract and determines those that are performance obligations. Arrangements that include rights to additional goods or services that are exercisable at a customer’s discretion are generally considered options. The Company assesses if these options provide a material right to the customer and if so, they are considered performance obligations. The identification of material rights requires judgments related to the determination of the value of the underlying good or service relative to the option exercise price. The exercise of a material right is accounted for as a contract modification for accounting purposes.

The Company assesses whether each promised good or service is distinct for the purpose of identifying the performance obligations in the contract. This assessment involves subjective determinations and requires management to make judgments about the individual promised goods or services and whether such are separable from the other aspects of the contractual relationship. Promised goods and services are considered distinct provided that: (i) the customer can benefit from the good or service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available to the customer (that is, the good or service is capable of being distinct) and (ii) the entity’s promise to transfer the good or service to the customer is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract (that is, the promise to transfer the good or service is distinct within the context of the contract). In assessing whether a promised good or service is distinct, the Company considers factors such as the research, manufacturing and commercialization capabilities of the collaboration partner and the availability of the associated expertise in the general marketplace. The Company also considers the intended benefit of the contract in assessing whether a promised good or service is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. If a promised good or service is not distinct, an entity is required to combine that good or service with other promised goods or services until it identifies a bundle of goods or services that is distinct.

The transaction price is then determined and allocated to the identified performance obligations in proportion to their standalone selling prices (“SSP”) on a relative SSP basis. SSP is determined at contract inception and is not updated to reflect changes between contract inception and when the performance obligations are satisfied. Determining the SSP for performance obligations requires significant judgment. In developing the SSP for a performance obligation, the Company considers applicable market conditions and relevant entity-specific factors, including factors that were contemplated in negotiating the agreement with the customer and estimated costs. The Company validates the SSP for performance obligations by evaluating whether changes in the key assumptions used to determine the SSP will have a significant effect on the allocation of arrangement consideration between multiple performance obligations.

If the consideration promised in a contract includes a variable amount, the Company estimates the amount of consideration to which it will be entitled in exchange for transferring the promised goods or services to a customer. The Company determines the amount of variable consideration by using the expected value method or the most likely amount method. The Company includes the unconstrained amount of estimated variable consideration in the transaction price. The amount included in the transaction price is constrained to the amount for which it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur. At the end of each subsequent reporting period, the Company re-evaluates the estimated variable consideration included in the transaction price and any related constraint, and if necessary, adjusts its estimate of the overall transaction price. Any such adjustments are recorded on a cumulative catch-up basis in the period of adjustment.

If an arrangement includes development and regulatory milestone payments, the Company evaluates whether the milestones are considered probable of being reached and estimates the amount to be included in the transaction price using the most likely amount method. If it is probable that a significant revenue reversal would not occur, the associated milestone value is included in the transaction price. Milestone payments that are not within the Company’s control or the licensee’s control, such as regulatory approvals, are generally not considered probable of being achieved until those approvals are received.

For arrangements with licenses of intellectual property that include sales-based royalties, including milestone payments based on the level of sales, and the license is deemed to be the predominant item to which the royalties relate, the Company recognizes royalty revenue and sales-based milestones at the later of (i) when the related sales occur, or (ii) when the performance obligation to which the royalty has been allocated has been satisfied.

In determining the transaction price, the Company adjusts consideration for the effects of the time value of money if the timing of payments provides the Company with a significant benefit of financing. The Company does not assess whether a contract has a significant financing component if the expectation at contract inception is such that the period between payment by the licensees and the transfer of the promised goods or services to the licensees will be one year or less. The Company assessed its revenue generating arrangement in order to determine whether a significant financing component exists and concluded that a significant financing component does not exist.

The Company then recognizes as revenue the amount of the transaction price that is allocated to the respective performance obligation when (or as) each performance obligation is satisfied, either at a point in time or over time, and if over time recognition is based on the use of an output or input method.

Collaborative arrangement revenue

On May 31, 2021, the Company entered into a License and Collaboration Agreement (“LianBio License Agreement”) with LianBio Inflammatory Limited (“LianBio”) to develop and commercialize LYR-210 in Greater China (mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau), South Korea, Singapore and Thailand. See Note 9 for further discussion of the arrangement.

Net Loss per Share

The Company has reported losses since inception and has computed basic net loss per share attributable to common stockholders by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period, without consideration for potentially dilutive securities. The Company has computed diluted net loss per common share after giving consideration to all potentially dilutive common shares, including options to purchase common stock and restricted stock units, outstanding during the period determined using the treasury-stock and if-converted methods, except where the effect of including such securities would be antidilutive. Because the Company has reported net losses since inception, these potential common shares have been anti-dilutive and basic and diluted loss per share have been the same.

The following table sets forth the potentially dilutive securities that have been excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per share because to include them would be anti-dilutive (in common stock equivalent shares):

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies and adopted by the Company 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 the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

3. Fair Value Measurements

The Company did not have financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

There have been no changes to the valuation methods used during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. There were no transfers within the fair value hierarchy during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

The carrying values of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair values due to the short-term nature of these assets and liabilities.
