Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Forward-Looking Information

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this report. Some of the information contained in this discussion and analysis and set forth elsewhere in this report, including information with respect to our plans and strategy for our business, the possible achievement of discovery and development milestones in 2014, our future discovery and development efforts, our collaborations, and our future operating results and financial position, includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. We often use words such as "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "predict," "project," "target," "potential," "will," "would," "could," "should," "continue," and other words and terms of similar meaning to help identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. You also can identify these forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. There are a number of important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include those inherent in pharmaceutical research and development, such as adverse results in our drug discovery and clinical development activities, decisions made by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, and other regulatory authorities with respect to the development and commercialization of our product candidates, our ability to obtain, maintain and enforce intellectual property rights for our product candidates, our dependence on our alliance partners, competition, our ability to obtain any necessary financing to conduct our planned activities and other risk factors. You should review the section titled "Risk Factors" in Part II of this report for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in the following discussion and analysis. Unless required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Business Overview

We are an innovative biopharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering, developing and delivering best-in-class medicines to patients with difficult-to-treat diseases. We combine proven scientific expertise with a passion for developing novel small molecule drugs that target emerging disease pathways. We have worldwide development and commercialization rights to all of our development candidates and early discovery programs, subject to certain financial obligations to our current licensor and former development partners.

Research and Development Programs

PI3 Kinase Inhibitor Program

Phosphoinositide-3-kinases, or the PI3Ks, are a family of enzymes involved in multiple cellular functions, including cell proliferation and survival, cell differentiation, cell migration and immunity. The PI3K-delta and PI3K-gamma isoforms are preferentially expressed in white blood cells, where they have distinct and mostly non-overlapping roles in immune cell development and function. Targeting PI3K-delta and PI3K-gamma may provide multiple opportunities to develop differentiated therapies for the treatment of hematologic malignancies and inflammatory diseases. IPI-145, our lead product candidate, is a potent, oral inhibitor of Class I PI3K-delta and PI3K-gamma, which we refer to as PI3K delta,gamma inhibitor. We are investigating IPI-145 in both hematologic malignancies and inflammatory diseases. We believe that IPI-145 is the only PI3K-delta,gamma inhibitor being investigated in Phase 3 clinical trials.

Hematologic Malignancies

We are conducting DUETTSTM, a worldwide investigation of IPI-145 in blood cancers. As part of the DUETTS program, we are conducting DYNAMOTM, a Phase 2, open-label, single arm study evaluating the safety and efficacy of IPI-145 dosed at 25mg twice daily, or BID, in approximately 120 patients with indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or iNHL, including follicular lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma and small lymphocytic lymphoma, or SLL, whose disease is refractory to radioimmunotherapy or both rituximab and chemotherapy. Patients enrolled in the study must have progressed within six months of receiving their last therapy. The primary endpoint of the study is response rate according to the International Working Group Criteria, or IWGC. The FDA has granted orphan drug designation to IPI-145 for the potential treatment of follicular lymphoma, the most common subtype of iNHL. We intend to expand the DUETTS program in 2014 with the initiation of DYNAMO+R, a Phase 3 study of IPI-145 in combination with rituximab, a monoclonal antibody therapy, in patients with relapsed iNHL, as well as a Phase 2 study in treatment-naοve patients with iNHL and at least one additional clinical study in patients with hematologic malignancies.

Additionally, under the DUETTS program we are enrolling patients in DUOTM, a Phase 3 study of IPI-145 in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL. This randomized study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of IPI-145 dosed at 25 mg BID compared to ofatumumab, a monoclonal antibody treatment, in approximately 300 patients with relapsed or refractory CLL. The primary endpoint of the study is progression-free survival. The FDA and the European Medicines Agency, or EMA, have granted orphan drug designation to IPI-145 for the potential treatment of CLL and SLL.

These trials are supported by data from our ongoing Phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation study designed to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and clinical activity of IPI-145 in patients with advanced hematologic malignancies. The dose-escalation portion of the trial is complete, with the maximum tolerated dose defined at 75 mg BID. We are continuing to evaluate IPI-145 across two 25mg BID expansion cohorts in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL, iNHL and mantle cell lymphoma, or MCL, and treatment-naοve CLL in high-risk patients (those patients who are over age 65 or have either of two genetic abnormalities known as a 17p deletion or p53 mutation). Additionally, we are continuing to evaluate IPI-145 across five 75mg BID expansion cohorts in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL, iNHL and MCL; T-cell lymphomas; aggressive B-cell lymphomas; myeloid neoplasms; and T-cell or B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma. Data from this study, presented in December 2013 at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Hematology, or ASH, and in January 2014 at the 6th Annual T-Cell Lymphoma Forum, showed that IPI-145 is clinically active in CLL, iNHL, T-Cell lymphoma, as well as other hematologic malignancies.

An investigator-sponsored Phase 1b, open-label study of IPI-145 in patients with B-cell NHL, CLL and T-cell lymphoma in combination with rituximab, bendamustine (a chemotherapy), or both rituximab and bendamustine is also open for enrollment.

Inflammatory and Autoimmune Diseases

Within inflammatory diseases, IPI-145 is currently being evaluated in two Phase 2 trials. The first trial, which we refer to as the ASPIRA trial, is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of IPI-145 in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, or RA. The study is expected to enroll approximately 316 adults with moderate-to-severe RA and is designed to examine three dose levels of IPI-145 given twice daily for 12 weeks in combination with methotrexate compared to treatment with methotrexate alone. The primary efficacy endpoint of the study is the American College of Rheumatology 20 response rate, or ACR20, which is defined as the proportion of patients who achieve at least a 20 percent improvement in ACR response criteria. The second trial is a Phase 2a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of IPI-145 in patients with mild, allergic asthma. Endpoints of this multi-dose, two-way crossover study include safety, pharmacokinetics and FEV1, a measure of lung function. We expect to report topline data from these studies in 2014.

Pipeline Expansion

We are also developing our second PI3K product candidate, a potent, oral PI3K-delta, gamma inhibitor that we refer to as IPI-443. The nonclinical studies of IPI-443 required for Phase 1 development, and the data from the two Phase 2 studies of IPI-145 in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases will guide the next steps for the development of IPI-443.

Other Programs

In addition to our clinical stage programs, we have multiple innovative projects in earlier stages of development. Through our internal discovery efforts, we discovered IPI-940, a novel, orally available inhibitor of fatty acid amide hydrolase, or FAAH. It is believed that inhibition of FAAH may enable the body to bolster its own analgesic and anti-inflammatory response and may have applicability in a broad range of pain or inflammatory conditions. In August 2014, we licensed rights to our FAAH program to FAAH Pharma Inc., a start-up company that will continue the clinical development of IPI-940 and investigate its potential to treat neuropathic pain.

Strategic Alliances

Millennium

In July 2010, we entered into a development and license agreement with Intellikine, Inc., or Intellikine, under which we obtained rights to discover, develop and commercialize pharmaceutical products targeting the delta and/or gamma isoforms of PI3K, including IPI-145, and we paid Intellikine a $13.5 million up-front license fee. In January 2012, Intellikine was acquired by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, or Takeda, acting through its Millennium business unit. We refer to our PI3K program licensor as Millennium. In December 2012, we amended and restated our development and license agreement with Millennium.

Under the terms of the amended and restated agreement, we retained worldwide development rights and regained commercialization rights for products arising from the agreement for all therapeutic indications, and we are solely responsible for research conducted under the agreement. Additionally, under the amended and restated agreement, Millennium waived certain commercial rights and, in consideration of such waiver, we agreed to pay to Millennium $15 million, payable in installments.

In addition to developing IPI-145, we are seeking to develop our second potent, oral PI3K-delta,gamma inhibitor product candidate, IPI-443, and we are seeking to identify additional novel inhibitors of PI3K-delta and/or PI3K-gamma for future development. We are obligated to pay to Millennium up to $5 million in remaining success-based milestone payments for the


Table of Contents

development of two distinct product candidates and up to $450 million in success-based milestones for the approval and commercialization of two distinct products. In February 2014, we paid Millennium a $10 million milestone payment in connection with the initiation of our Phase 3 study of IPI-145 in patients with relapsed or refractory CLL. In addition, we are obligated to pay Millennium tiered royalties on worldwide net sales ranging from 7 percent to 11 percent upon successful commercialization of products described in the agreement. Such royalties are payable until the later to occur of the expiration of specified patent rights and the expiration of non-patent regulatory exclusivities in a country, subject to reduction of the royalties, and , in certain circumstances, limits on the number of products subject to a royalty obligation.

The amended and restated agreement expires on the later of the expiration of certain patents and the expiration of the royalty payment terms for the products, unless earlier terminated. Either party may terminate the agreement on 75 days' prior written notice if the other party materially breaches the agreement and fails to cure such breach within the applicable notice period, provided that the notice period is reduced to 30 days where the alleged breach is non-payment. Millennium may also terminate the agreement if we are not diligent in developing or commercializing the licensed products and do not, within three months after notice from Millennium, demonstrate to Millennium's reasonable satisfaction that we have not failed to be diligent. The foregoing periods are subject to extension in certain circumstances. Additionally, Millennium may terminate the agreement upon 30 days' prior written notice if we or a related party bring an action challenging the validity of any of the licensed patents, provided that we have not withdrawn such action before the end of the 30-day notice period. We may terminate the agreement at any time upon 180 days' prior written notice. The agreement also provides for customary reciprocal indemnification obligations of the parties.

On July 29, 2014, we entered into an amendment to our agreement with Millennium, or the 2014 Millennium Amendment. Under the 2014 Millennium Amendment, we paid to Millennium a one-time upfront payment of $5 million in exchange for the option to terminate our royalty obligations to Millennium under our existing agreement with respect to worldwide net sales in oncology indications of products containing or comprised of IPI-145. The option may be exercised by payment to Millennium of a fee of $52.5 million on or before March 31, 2015. If the option is not exercised, our royalty obligations to Millennium will remain unchanged.

Mundipharma and Purdue

Strategic Alliance Termination Agreements

On July 17, 2012, we terminated our strategic alliance with Mundipharma International Corporation Limited, or Mundipharma, and Purdue Pharmaceutical Products L.P., or Purdue, and entered into termination and revised relationship agreements with each of those entities, which we refer to as the 2012 Termination Agreements. The alliance was previously governed by strategic alliance agreements that we entered into with each of Mundipharma and Purdue in November 2008. The strategic alliance agreement with Purdue was focused on the development and commercialization in the United States of products targeting FAAH. The strategic alliance agreement with Mundipharma was focused on the development and commercialization outside the United States of all products and product candidates that inhibit or target the Hedgehog pathway, FAAH, PI3K and product candidates arising out of our early discovery projects in all disease fields. Our Hsp90 program was expressly excluded from the alliance.

Under the terms of the 2012 Termination Agreements:

• All intellectual property rights that we had previously licensed to Mundipharma and Purdue to develop and commercialize products under the previous strategic alliance agreements terminated, with the result that we have worldwide rights to all product candidates that had previously been covered by the strategic alliance.

• We have no further obligation to provide research and development services to Mundipharma and Purdue as of July 17, 2012.

• Mundipharma and Purdue have no further obligation to provide research and development funding to us. Under the alliance, Mundipharma was obligated to reimburse us for research and development expenses we incurred, up to an annual aggregate cap for each alliance program other than FAAH. We did not record a liability for amounts previously funded by Purdue and Mundipharma as this relationship was not considered a financing arrangement.

• We are obligated to pay Mundipharma and Purdue a 4 percent royalty in the aggregate, subject to reduction as described below, on worldwide net sales of products that were covered by the alliance until such time as they have recovered approximately $260 million, representing the research and development funding paid to us for research and development services performed by us through the termination of the strategic alliance. After this cost recovery, our royalty obligations to Mundipharma and Purdue will be reduced to a one percent royalty on net sales in the United States of products that were previously subject to the strategic alliance. All payments are contingent upon the successful commercialization of products that were subject to the alliance, which products require significant further development. As such, there is significant uncertainty about whether any such products will ever be approved or commercialized. If no products are commercialized, no payments will be due by us to Mundipharma and Purdue; therefore, no amounts have been accrued.

Royalties are payable under these agreements until the later to occur of the last-to-expire of specified patent rights and the expiration of non-patent regulatory exclusivities in a country, provided that if royalties are payable solely on the basis of non-patent regulatory exclusivity, each of the royalty rates is reduced by 50 percent. In addition, royalties payable under these agreements after Mundipharma and Purdue have recovered all research and development expenses paid to us are subject to reduction on account of third party royalty payments or patent litigation damages or settlements which might be required to be paid by us if litigation were to arise, with any such reductions capped at 50 percent of the amounts otherwise payable during the applicable royalty payment period.

Strategic Debt Facility

Facility Agreement

On February 24, 2014, we entered into a facility agreement with affiliates of Deerfield Management Company, L.P., or Deerfield, which we refer to as the Facility Agreement. Pursuant to the Facility Agreement, Deerfield agreed to loan us up to $100 million, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Facility Agreement. Under the terms of the Facility Agreement, we may draw down on the Facility Agreement in $25 million minimum disbursements, which we refer to as the Loan Commitment, at any time until February 27, 2015, which we refer to as the Draw Period. Our ability to draw down under the Facility Agreement is subject to various customary conditions, including the entry into a Guaranty and Security Agreement, or Guaranty, with Deerfield and Infinity Discovery, Inc., or IDI, our a wholly-owned subsidiary, pursuant to which, as security for the repayment of our obligations under the Facility Agreement, IDI will guaranty all our obligations under the Facility Agreement and, to secure the obligations under the Facility Agreement and the Guaranty, both we and IDI will grant to Deerfield a security interest in substantially all our assets including intellectual property.

Any amounts drawn under the Facility Agreement accrue interest at a rate of 7.95 percent per annum, and such interest shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first day of each June, September, December and March following the disbursement date, provided that, subject to the next sentence, during the first five interest payment dates of any draw under the Facility Agreement, we may elect to pay all or a portion of such accrued interest by adding it to the principal amount outstanding. All such accrued interest will, regardless of which draw it applies to, be payable on the last business day of the sixth calendar quarter following the date of the first draw under the Facility Agreement. We have the right to terminate the Facility Agreement and/or to prepay amounts owed under the Facility Agreement at any time, provided that, to the extent that any amount was drawn less than three years before such early termination or prepayment, we will be required to pay an additional amount equal to three years of interest on the amount being prepaid less the amount of interest previously paid on such amount. For amounts drawn under the Facility Agreement, we will be required to repay them to Deerfield in installments equal to one-third of the outstanding amount of the total principal amount drawn under the Facility Agreement on each of the third, fourth and fifth anniversaries of the first draw; the final payment, however, must be made by December 15, 2019. On February 27, 2015, or upon the earlier termination or acceleration of the facility, we are required to pay a fee equal to 3 percent of the difference between the $100 million commitment and the aggregate amount of disbursements under the Facility Agreement made prior to such date, which we refer to as the Facility Fee.

Deerfield will have the right to accelerate payment of the facility in the event that we consummate a major transaction, which is generally defined as a change in control, a sale of all or substantially all of our assets, a tender or exchange offer for our common stock, a liquidation, bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution or wind up, a delisting and/or the common stock ceases to be registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Exchange Act. Any amounts drawn under the Facility Agreement may become immediately due and payable upon (i) customary events of default, as defined in the Facility Agreement, or (ii) the consummation of certain major transactions, in which case Deerfield would have the right to require us to repay 100 percent of the principal amount of the loan, plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon, plus any applicable additional amounts relating to a prepayment or termination, as described above.

Principal and interest under the Facility Agreement may be paid in cash or freely tradable shares of common stock at our election, subject to specified conditions at any time of conversion. The Facility Agreement contains various representations and warranties, and affirmative covenants customary for agreements of this type, including the requirement that we maintain at all times a cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities balance of not less than $25 million, as well as negative covenants customary for financings of this type that are applicable upon the first draw under the Facility Agreement. Additionally, the Facility Agreement contains conditions that must be met prior to disbursements, including the condition that the number of shares of our common stock issued or issuable pursuant to all warrants following the proposed disbursement, together with payments made in our common stock under the Facility Agreement, will not exceed 9,500,000 shares, subject to appropriate adjustment to reflect any stock splits, stock combination, reclassification or similar adjustments in the number of outstanding shares of common stock.


Table of Contents

Warrants

In connection with the execution of the Facility Agreement, we issued to Deerfield warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $13.83 per share, or the Initial Warrants. As noted above, pursuant to the Facility Agreement, we have the right to request from Deerfield one or more cash disbursements in the minimum amount of $25 million per disbursement, which disbursements shall be accompanied by the issuance to Deerfield of warrants, which we refer to as the Draw Warrants, to purchase an aggregate number of shares of common stock equal to 50 percent times the quotient of the amount of such disbursement divided by an exercise price equal to the average daily volume weighted average price per share of our common stock for the 20 consecutive trading day period following Deerfield's receipt of the applicable disbursement request. We refer to the Initial Warrants and the Draw Warrants individually as a Warrant or together as the Warrants. The maximum number of shares of our common stock issued or issuable pursuant to all Warrants and payments made in our common stock under the Facility Agreement is 9,500,000, subject to appropriate adjustment to reflect any stock splits, stock combination, reclassification or similar adjustments in the number of outstanding shares of common stock. The Warrants have dividend rights to the same extent as if the Warrants were exercised into shares of common stock.

Each Warrant issued under the Facility Agreement expires on the seventh anniversary of its issuance and contains certain limitations that prevent the holder from acquiring shares upon exercise of a Warrant that would result in the number of shares beneficially owned by it exceeding 9.985 percent of the total number of shares of common stock then issued and outstanding.

Registration Rights Agreement

In connection with the entry into the Facility Agreement and issuance of the Initial Warrants, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with Deerfield dated February 24, 2014. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, we filed, and on May 1, 2014 the Securities and Exchange Commission declared effective, a registration statement on Form S-3 registering for resale the 1,000,000 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Initial Warrants. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed to file one or more additional registration statements with the SEC to register for resale the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the applicable Draw Warrants, on or prior to 30 days after issuance of each of the Draw Warrants.

Financial Overview

Revenue

All of our revenue to date has been derived from license fees, the reimbursement of research and development costs, contract service revenue and milestone payments received from our collaboration partners. License fees were recognized as revenue ratably over the expected research and development period under our arrangement with Mundipharma and Purdue. Because our agreements with Mundipharma and Purdue also provided for funding for our research and development efforts, we recognized this cost reimbursement as revenue in the period earned in proportion to our forecasted total expenses as compared to the total research funding budget for the year. In the future, we may generate revenue from a combination of product sales, research and development support services and milestone payments in connection with strategic relationships, as well as royalties resulting from the sales of products developed under licenses of our intellectual property. We expect that any potential future revenue we generate will fluctuate from year to year as a result of the timing and amount of license fees, research and development reimbursement, milestone and other payments earned under our collaborative or strategic relationships and the amount and timing of payments that we earn upon the sale of our products, to the extent any are successfully commercialized.

Research and Development Expense

We are a drug discovery and development company. Our research and development expense to date has primarily consisted of the following:

• compensation of personnel associated with research and development activities;

• clinical testing costs, including payments made to contract research organizations;

• costs of comparator drugs used in clinical studies;

• costs of purchasing laboratory supplies and materials;

• costs of manufacturing product candidates for preclinical testing and clinical studies;

• costs associated with the licensing of research and development programs;

• preclinical testing costs, including costs of toxicology studies;
