Alpine Immune reports Q2 EPS (57c), consensus (43c)
Reports Q2 revenue $390,000, consensus $210,000. "During the first six months of this year, we continued to execute with important advancements that support taking our programs into clinical trials," said Mitchell H. Gold, M.D., Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Alpine. "Our lead program ALPN-101, a dual ICOS/CD28 antagonist for the treatment of autoimmune/inflammatory disease, is rapidly advancing toward our company's first human clinical trials. Our lead oncology program, ALPN-202, is a novel molecule designed to block the inhibitory immune checkpoints PD-L1 and CTLA-4, and to provide PD-L1-dependent T cell activation via the CD28 costimulatory receptor. Together, we believe these two molecules place Alpine on the cusp of the next generation of immunotherapy. I'm also excited about the addition of Mark Litton as President and Chief Operating Officer, which comes at an important time for Alpine. I am confident we have the right people and strategy in place as we work to deliver meaningful value to our investors over the long term."
