Overview

We're a biopharmaceutical firm targeted on the invention, growth and
commercialization of small molecule therapies designed to modulate mobile
protein ranges as a novel remedy method for most cancers and different difficult
illnesses. Leveraging our in depth experience in E3 ligases along with our
proprietary DNA-encoded libraries, we've got constructed DELigase, an built-in
discovery platform to determine and advance novel drug candidates focusing on E3
ligases, a broad class of enzymes that may modulate proteins throughout the cell.
Our drug discovery method is to both harness or inhibit the pure perform
of E3 ligases throughout the ubiquitin-proteasome system to selectively lower or
enhance mobile protein ranges. Our wholly owned pipeline includes focused
protein degraders of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK), a B-cell signaling protein,
and inhibitors of Casitas B-lineage lymphoma proto-oncogene B (CBL-B), an E3
ligase that regulates T cell activation. Our lead drug candidate from our
protein degradation portfolio, NX-2127, is an orally bioavailable BTK degrader
for the remedy of relapsed or refractory B-cell malignancies. We filed an
investigational new drug software (IND) for NX-2127 in December 2020 and
acquired clearance by the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration (FDA) to provoke
human medical trials. Scientific websites are actively recruiting sufferers for our
Part 1 medical trial of NX-2127. Our second drug candidate from our protein
degradation portfolio, NX-5948, can be an orally bioavailable BTK degrader for
the remedy of relapsed or refractory B-cell malignancies and probably
autoimmune illnesses. We anticipate commencing a Part 1 trial for NX-5948 within the
second half of 2021. Our lead drug candidate from our E3 ligase inhibitor
portfolio, NX-1607, is an orally bioavailable CBL-B inhibitor for
immuno-oncology indications. We anticipate to begin a Part 1 medical trial in
the second half of 2021. We're additionally advancing the event of a CBL-B
inhibitor, NX-0255, for ex vivo use to reinforce adoptive T-cell remedy. We
anticipate commencing a Part 1 medical trial for our first cell remedy
candidate, DeTIL-0255, within the second half of 2021. All anticipated Part 1 medical
trial commencements are primarily based on calendar years. Past these medical
candidates, we're advancing extra wholly owned, preclinical packages that
could increase our therapeutic areas past oncology to autoimmune illness and viral
illnesses, together with COVID-19. Our therapeutic areas could also be additional expanded
by means of our established strategic collaborations with Sanofi S.A. (Sanofi), and
Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Gilead).

For the reason that graduation of our operations, we've got devoted considerably all of
our sources to conducting analysis and growth actions, establishing
and sustaining our mental property portfolio, establishing our company
infrastructure, elevating capital and offering common and administrative assist
for these operations. We now have funded our operations to this point primarily from
proceeds acquired below collaboration and license agreements with Sanofi,
Gilead, and Celgene Company (Celgene) and the issuance and sale of frequent
and redeemable convertible most well-liked inventory. We don't anticipate to generate product
income until and till we efficiently develop and procure approval for the
commercialization of a drug candidate, and we can not guarantee you that we are going to
ever generate important income or earnings.

Since inception, we've got usually incurred important losses and adverse money
flows from operations. Through the 9 months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, we
incurred web losses of $79.5 million and $23.3 million, respectively. As of
August 31, 2021, we had an amassed deficit of $183.2 million. These losses
have resulted primarily from prices incurred in reference to analysis and
growth actions and common and administrative prices related to our
operations.

We don't anticipate to generate any income from business product gross sales until
and till we efficiently full growth and procure regulatory approval
for a number of of our drug candidates, which we anticipate will take quite a lot of
years. We anticipate our bills will enhance considerably as we advance our drug
candidates by means of preclinical and into medical growth; enter superior
medical growth and scale up exterior manufacturing capabilities to produce
medical trials; apply our DELigase platform to advance extra drug
candidates and increase the capabilities of our platform; search advertising approvals
for any drug candidates that efficiently full medical trials; in the end
set up a gross sales, advertising and distribution infrastructure and scale up
exterior manufacturing capabilities to commercialize any merchandise for which we
could get hold of advertising approval; increase, preserve and defend our mental
property portfolio; and rent extra medical, regulatory, manufacturing,
high quality assurance and scientific personnel. Moreover, we anticipate to proceed
to incur extra prices related to working as a public firm,
together with important authorized, accounting, insurance coverage, investor relations and different
administrative {and professional} providers bills.

                                       22

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Our web losses and money flows could fluctuate considerably from interval to interval,
relying on, amongst different issues, variations within the degree of expense associated to
the continuing growth of our drug candidates, our DELigase platform or future
growth packages; the delay, addition or termination of medical trials; and
the execution of any extra collaboration, licensing or comparable
preparations, and the timing of funds we could make or obtain below such
preparations.

As of August 31, 2021, we had $465.4 million in money, money equivalents and
investments. In July 2020, we closed our preliminary public providing and issued
12,550,000 shares of our frequent inventory (together with the train by the
underwriters of their choice to buy an extra 1,550,000 shares of
frequent inventory in August 2020) at a value to the general public of $19.00 per share for
web proceeds of roughly $218.1 million, after deducting underwriting
reductions and commissions of $16.7 million and bills of $3.6 million. In
March 2021, we accomplished a follow-on providing and issued 5,175,000 shares of our
frequent inventory (together with the train by the underwriters of their choice to
buy an extra 675,000 shares of frequent inventory) at a value to the general public
of $31.00 per share for web proceeds of roughly $150.2 million, after
deducting underwriting reductions and commissions of $9.6 million and bills of
$0.6 million. We anticipate that our present money, money equivalents and investments
are ample to fund our operations for a minimum of the following 12 months. See the
part titled "-Liquidity and Capital Sources" for extra info. We are going to
want to lift substantial extra capital to finish the event and
commercialization of our drug candidates and pursue our long-term marketing strategy.
Till such time as we are able to generate important income from product gross sales, if
ever, we anticipate to finance our operations by means of a mix of public or
non-public fairness choices, debt financings, collaborations, strategic alliances,
licensing preparations and different advertising and distribution preparations. In
addition, we could search extra capital as a consequence of favorable market situations or
strategic concerns, even when we imagine we've got ample funds for our
present or future working plans.

We're topic to dangers and uncertainties because of the present coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic, which is impacting worldwide
financial exercise, poses the danger that we or our staff, contractors,
suppliers and different companions could also be prevented from conducting enterprise
actions for an indefinite time frame, together with as a consequence of shutdowns that will
be requested or mandated by governmental authorities. Whereas the influence of the
COVID-19 pandemic to our present operations has been minimal, the extent to
which the COVID-19 pandemic will influence our enterprise, monetary situation,
liquidity and outcomes of operations sooner or later will depend upon future
developments which might be extremely unsure and can't be predicted presently.

Collaborations and license agreements

Collaboration, Possibility and License Settlement with Gilead

In June 2019, we entered into a world strategic collaboration settlement with
Gilead, which was amended in August 2019 (the Gilead Settlement), to find,
develop and commercialize a pipeline of focused protein degradation medicine for
sufferers with most cancers and different difficult illnesses utilizing our DELigase platform
to determine novel brokers that make the most of E3 ligases to induce degradation of 5
specified drug targets.

Beneath the Gilead Settlement, Gilead has the choice to license drug candidates
directed to as much as 5 targets ensuing from the collaboration and is
chargeable for the medical growth and commercialization of drug
candidates ensuing from the collaboration. We retain the choice to co-develop
and co-promote, below a revenue share construction, as much as two drug candidates in the
United States below sure situations. The collaboration excludes our present
inner protein degradation packages for which we retain all rights, and likewise
excludes our future inner packages, offered that we've got distinguished
future packages as excluded from the scope of the collaboration.

Over time, Gilead could elect to switch the preliminary drug targets with different drug
targets. For drug targets which might be topic to the collaboration, we're
obligated to make use of commercially cheap efforts to undertake a analysis program
in accordance with a analysis plan agreed to by the events and established on a
target-by-target foundation. We now have main duty below the settlement for
performing preclinical analysis actions (together with goal validation, drug
discovery, identification or synthesis) pursuant to a analysis plan. Every occasion
will bear its personal prices within the conduct of analysis actions. Gilead will probably be
chargeable for any growth, commercialization and manufacturing actions,
until we train our co-development and co-promotion possibility. For these

Sanofi collaboration and license settlement

In December 2019, we entered right into a strategic collaboration with Genzyme
Company, a subsidiary of Sanofi, which grew to become efficient in January 2020 (as
subsequently expanded and amended, the Sanofi Settlement), to find, develop
and commercialize a pipeline of focused protein degradation medicine for sufferers
with difficult illnesses in a number of therapeutic areas utilizing our DELigase
platform to determine small molecules designed to induce degradation of three
specified preliminary drug targets. In January 2021, as a part of the present
collaboration, Sanofi paid us $22.0 million to train its choice to increase the
variety of targets within the collaboration settlement from three to a complete of 5
targets. Over time and topic to sure limitations, Sanofi could elect to
exchange the drug targets with different reserved targets. We additionally entered into the
First Sanofi Modification to the collaboration settlement with Sanofi in January
2021 to change the analysis time period on all targets.

Beneath the Sanofi Settlement, Sanofi has unique rights and is chargeable for
the medical growth, commercialization and manufacture of drug candidates
ensuing from the collaboration, whereas we retain the choice to co-develop,
co-promote and co-commercialize all drug candidates in america
directed to as much as two targets below sure situations. The collaboration
excludes our present inner protein degradation packages for which we retain
all rights, and likewise excludes our future inner packages, offered that we
have distinguished future packages as excluded from the scope of the
collaboration.

For drug targets which might be topic to the collaboration, we've got main
duty for conducting preclinical analysis actions (together with goal
validation, drug discovery, identification or synthesis) in accordance with the
relevant analysis plan agreed to by the events and established on a
target-by-target foundation. We're obligated to make use of commercially cheap efforts
to determine related goal binders and chimeric focusing on molecules (CTMs) in
order to determine growth candidates. Topic to sure exceptions, every
occasion will bear its personal prices within the conduct of such analysis. Sanofi will probably be
chargeable for any growth and commercialization actions until we
train our co-development and co-promotion possibility. For these packages that we
train our choice to co-develop, co-promote and co-commercialize, we will probably be
chargeable for a portion of the U.S. growth prices, and the events will
break up U.S. earnings and losses evenly, and we will probably be eligible to obtain
royalties on ex-U.S. web gross sales and lowered milestone funds on such optioned
merchandise.

Upon signing the Sanofi Settlement, Sanofi paid us an upfront cost of
$55.0 million in January 2020. Subsequently in January 2021, Sanofi paid us an
extra $22.0 million to train its choice to increase the variety of targets
past the preliminary targets included within the collaboration. We're eligible to
obtain extra funds if Sanofi workout routines an possibility to increase the license
time period with respect to a selected goal. For the reason that signing of the Sanofi
Settlement, we've got acquired a cost of $1.0 million for analysis milestones,
all of which was acquired within the third quarter of 2021. As of August 31, 2021,
we're eligible to obtain as much as roughly $2.5 billion in complete funds
primarily based on sure extra charges, funds and the profitable completion of
sure analysis, growth, regulatory and gross sales milestones, in addition to
tiered royalties starting from mid-single digit to low teen percentages on annual
web gross sales of any business merchandise that will outcome from the collaboration,
topic to sure reductions and excluding gross sales in america of any
merchandise for which we train our choice to co-develop and co-promote, for
which we share earnings and losses evenly.

We accounted for the First Sanofi Modification as if it had been a part of the present
contract with Sanofi because the remaining items and providers to be offered after
the contract modification usually are not distinct from the products and providers already
offered and, subsequently, type a part of a single efficiency obligation that's
partially happy on the date of the contract modification. The contract
modification didn't affect the contract transaction value. The
impact of the revised analysis interval on our measure of progress towards full
satisfaction of the efficiency obligation was acknowledged as an adjustment to
income on the date of the contract modification on a cumulative catch-up foundation.

We acknowledged collaboration income from the Sanofi Settlement of $4.2 million
and $9.8 million through the three and 9 months ended August 31, 2021,

ended August 31, 2020, respectively. As of August 31, 2021, there was $62.5
million of deferred income associated to funds acquired by us below the Sanofi
Settlement.

Coaching DeCART Therapeutics inc.

In June 2020, we established DeCART Therapeutics Inc. (DeCART), a completely owned
subsidiary, with an funding of $3.0 million and granted DeCART a license to
three of our compounds, together with NX-0255, for drug-enhanced isolation of
T cells solely with respect to a few CAR-T remedy targets. DeCART expects
to mix our protein modulation applied sciences with novel CAR-T therapies to
tackle present immunotherapy limitations and enhance outcomes for sufferers with
most cancers, and subsequently search fairness financing from third events and grow to be an
unbiased working entity. DeCART granted to its exterior founders inventory
choices to buy shares of DeCART's frequent inventory equal to 14% of the totally
diluted capitalization of DeCART. Following both

                                       24

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

third occasion financing or the train of inventory possibility grants, DeCART will not be a completely owned subsidiary.

Elements of the outcomes of operations

Collaboration revenue

We now have no merchandise permitted for business sale and to this point haven't generated
any income and don't anticipate to generate any income from the sale of merchandise
within the close to future.

Our income to this point has been generated from funds acquired pursuant to
collaboration and license preparations with strategic companions. Collaboration
income consists of income acquired from upfront, milestone and contingent
funds acquired from our collaborators. We acknowledge income from upfront
funds over the contract time period utilizing the cost-based enter methodology. The fabric
proper to the 2 extra targets below the Sanofi Settlement was accounted for
utilizing the sensible different and the anticipated consideration to be acquired on
the choices was included for income allocation. We anticipate to proceed
recognizing income from upfront funds associated to our collaboration
agreements utilizing the cost-based enter methodology within the foreseeable future.

Along with receiving upfront funds, we can also be entitled to milestones
and different contingent funds upon reaching predefined goals. If a
milestone is taken into account possible of being reached, and whether it is possible {that a}
important income reversal wouldn't happen, the related milestone quantity
would even be included within the transaction value.

We anticipate that any collaboration income we generate from our present collaboration and license agreements, and any future collaboration companions, will fluctuate sooner or later as a result of timing and quantity of upfront funds, milestones and the like. collaborative preparations and different components.

Analysis and growth prices

Analysis and growth bills consist primarily of prices incurred for the
discovery and growth of our drug candidates. We expense each inner and
exterior analysis and growth bills to operations within the durations during which
they're incurred. Nonrefundable advance funds for items or providers to be
acquired in future durations to be used in analysis and growth actions are
deferred and capitalized. The capitalized quantities are then expensed because the
associated items are delivered and as providers are carried out. We monitor the exterior
analysis and growth prices incurred for every of our drug candidates.

Inside analysis and growth prices embrace:

    •   payroll and personnel bills, together with advantages, stock-based
        compensation and journey bills, for our analysis and growth
        capabilities; and

• depreciation of analysis and growth tools, allotted overheads and

bills associated to amenities.

Exterior analysis and growth bills primarily encompass prices incurred for the event of our drug candidates and should embrace:

• charges paid to 3rd events corresponding to consultants, contractors and contracts

analysis organizations to conduct our discovery packages, preclinical

medical research and trials;

• acquisition, growth and manufacturing prices of provides for preclinical research

and medical trials, together with charges paid to 3rd events corresponding to

        manufacturing organizations; and


  • bills associated to laboratory provides and providers.


We anticipate our analysis and growth bills to extend considerably for
the foreseeable future as we proceed to put money into analysis and growth
actions to advance our drug candidates into and thru our preclinical
research and medical trials, pursue regulatory approval of our drug candidates
and increase our drug candidate pipeline. The method of conducting the required
preclinical and medical analysis to acquire regulatory approval is dear and
time-consuming. To the extent that our drug candidates advance and proceed to
advance into medical trials, our bills will enhance considerably and should
grow to be extra variable. The precise likelihood of success for our drug candidates
could also be affected by a wide range of components, together with the protection and efficacy of
our drug candidates, funding in our medical packages, the power of
collaborators to efficiently develop our licensed drug candidates,
manufacturing functionality, competitors with different merchandise and business
viability. On account of these variables, we're unable to find out when and
to what extent we are going to generate income from the commercialization and sale of
our drug candidates. We could by no means reach reaching regulatory approval for
any of our drug candidates.

Basic and administrative bills

Basic and administrative bills consist primarily of payroll and personnel
bills, together with advantages and stock-based compensation, facilities-related
bills {and professional} charges for authorized, consulting, and audit and tax
providers. We anticipate our common and administrative bills to extend
considerably for the foreseeable future as we proceed to construct our
infrastructure, enhance our headcount and function as a public firm. This may increasingly
embrace bills associated to compliance with the principles and rules of the

                                       25

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SEC and itemizing requirements relevant to firms listed on a nationwide
securities alternate, extra insurance coverage, investor relations actions and
different administrative {and professional} providers. We additionally anticipate our mental
property bills to extend as we increase our mental property portfolio.

Curiosity and different revenue, web

Curiosity and different revenue, web primarily consists of curiosity earned on our
money, money equivalents and investments. We anticipate curiosity revenue to fluctuate every
reporting interval relying on our common financial institution deposit, cash market fund, and
funding balances through the interval and market rates of interest.

Provision (profit) for revenue taxes

The availability for revenue taxes primarily consists of reserves for unrecognized
tax advantages and minimal state taxes. The profit for revenue taxes consists of a
discrete tax profit from an adjustment to the online working loss (NOL) deferred
tax asset and valuation allowance. We now have generated NOLs since inception and
have established a full valuation allowance towards our deferred tax property due
to the uncertainty surrounding the belief of such property.

Liquidity and capital sources

Sources of liquidity

Our preliminary public providing closed on July 28, 2020 at which era we issued
11,000,000 shares of our frequent inventory at a value to the general public of $19.00 per
share. As well as, the underwriters exercised their choice to buy an
extra 1,550,000 shares of our frequent inventory on July 31, 2020, and this

with third events to take part of their growth and commercialization, we
are unable to estimate the quantities of elevated capital outlays and working
expenditures related to our present and anticipated pre-clinical research

We now have a shelf registration assertion on Type S-3 on file with the SEC. This
shelf registration assertion, which features a base prospectus, permits us at any

promote by means of Piper Sandler as much as $150.0 million of the frequent inventory registered
below the shelf registration assertion pursuant to a number of "on the market"
choices. We aren't required to promote any shares at any time through the time period of
the Fairness Distribution Settlement. We agreed to pay Piper Sandler a fee
of three% of the product sales value of any shares bought pursuant to the Fairness
Distribution Settlement. As of August 31, 2021, we've got not bought any shares of
frequent inventory pursuant to the Fairness Distribution Settlement and $150.0 million in
shares remained obtainable below the Fairness Distribution Settlement.

Except in any other case laid out in a prospectus complement accompanying the bottom
prospectus, we'd use the online proceeds from the sale of any securities
provided pursuant to the shelf registration assertion for common company
functions, which can embrace funding for working capital, financing capital
expenditures, analysis and growth, medical trials, advertising and
distribution efforts, and if alternatives come up, for acquisitions or strategic
alliances. Pending such makes use of, we could make investments the online proceeds in interest-bearing
securities. As well as, we could conduct concurrent or different financings at any
time.

Our future funding wants will depend upon many components, together with the next:

• the progress, prices and outcomes of our section 1 medical trials deliberate for

        our lead drug candidates NX-2127, NX-1607, NX-5948 and DeTIL-0255 and

                                       28
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

• our means to determine extra collaboration agreements with different

        biotechnology or pharmaceutical firms on favorable phrases, if in any respect,
        for the event or commercialization of our drug candidates.


If enough funds usually are not obtainable at favorable phrases, we could also be required to
cut back working bills, delay or cut back the scope of our product growth
and business enlargement packages, get hold of funds by means of preparations with others
that will require us to relinquish rights to sure of our applied sciences or
merchandise that we'd in any other case search to develop or commercialize ourselves, or
stop operations. If we do increase extra capital by means of public or non-public
fairness or convertible debt choices, the possession curiosity of our present
stockholders will probably be diluted, and the phrases of those securities could embrace
liquidation or different preferences that adversely have an effect on our stockholders' rights.

Off-balance sheet provisions

We now have not entered into any off-balance sheet association as outlined in Article 303 of Regulation SK.

Rising progress firm and smaller reporting standing

We're an "rising progress firm" (EGC), as outlined within the Jumpstart Our
Enterprise Startups Act of 2012, as amended (the JOBS Act). We are going to stay an EGC
till the earliest of: (i) the final day of the fiscal 12 months during which we've got
complete annual gross revenues of $1.07 billion or extra; (ii) the final day of the
fiscal 12 months following the fifth anniversary of the completion of our preliminary
public providing; (iii) the date on which we've got issued greater than $1.0 billion
in nonconvertible debt through the earlier three years; or (iv) the date on
which we're deemed to be a big accelerated filer below the principles of the SEC,
which usually is when an organization has greater than $700.0 million in market worth
of its inventory held by non-affiliates as of the prior Might 31, has been a public
firm for a minimum of 12 months and has filed one annual report on Type 10-Ok.

Beneath the JOBS Act, EGCs can delay adopting new or revised accounting requirements
issued subsequent to the enactment of the JOBS Act till such time as these
requirements apply to non-public firms. We now have elected to make use of this prolonged
transition interval for complying with new or revised accounting requirements that
have totally different efficient dates for private and non-private firms till the
earlier of the date that we (i) are not an EGC or (ii) affirmatively and
irrevocably decide out of the prolonged transition interval offered within the JOBS Act.
Consequently, the knowledge we offer might not be akin to firms that
adjust to the brand new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public firm
efficient dates.

As well as, we intend to depend on the opposite exemptions and lowered reporting
necessities offered by the JOBS Act. Topic to sure situations set forth
within the JOBS Act, if as an EGC we intend to depend on such exemptions, we're not
required to, amongst different issues: (i) present an auditor's attestation report on
our system of inner management over monetary reporting pursuant to
Part 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; (ii) present all the
compensation disclosure which may be required of non-EGCs below the Dodd-Frank
Wall Road Reform and Client Safety Act; (iii) adjust to any
requirement which may be adopted by the Public Firm Accounting Oversight Board
relating to obligatory audit agency rotation or a complement to the auditor's report
offering extra details about the audit and the monetary statements
(auditor dialogue and evaluation); and (iv) disclose sure government
compensation-related objects such because the correlation between government
compensation and efficiency and comparisons of the Chief Govt Officer's
compensation to median worker compensation. As of November 30, 2021, we are going to
lose our standing as an EGC and can not have the ability to make the most of the
exemptions from numerous reporting necessities starting with our annual report
for the fiscal 12 months ending November 30, 2021 to be filed in 2022.

We're additionally a "smaller reporting firm," that means that the market worth of our
inventory held by non-affiliates is lower than $700.0 million as of the prior Might 31
and our annual income is lower than $100.0 million throughout essentially the most just lately
accomplished fiscal 12 months. We could proceed to be a smaller reporting firm if
both (i) the market worth of our inventory held by non-affiliates is lower than
$250.0 million as of the prior Might 31 or (ii) our annual income is lower than
$100.0 million throughout essentially the most just lately accomplished fiscal 12 months and the market
worth of our inventory held by non-affiliates is lower than $700.0 million as of the
prior Might 31. If we're a smaller reporting firm on the time we stop to be
an EGC, we could proceed to depend on exemptions from sure disclosure
necessities which might be obtainable to smaller reporting firms. Particularly, as
a smaller reporting firm we could select to current solely the 2 most up-to-date
fiscal years of audited monetary statements in our Annual Report on Type 10-Ok
and, just like EGCs, smaller reporting firms have lowered disclosure
obligations relating to government compensation.

Crucial accounting conventions and estimates

date of the monetary statements, in addition to the

                                       30

reported income generated and bills incurred through the reporting durations.
Our estimates are primarily based on our historic expertise and on different related
assumptions that we imagine are cheap below the circumstances, the outcomes
of which type the idea for making judgments concerning the carrying worth of property
and liabilities that aren't readily obvious from different sources. Precise outcomes
could differ from these estimates below totally different assumptions or situations.

administration's judgments and estimates utilized in preparation of our monetary
