Exhibit 99.1

AN2 Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2024 Financial Results and Recent Business and Scientific Highlights

Plan to report Phase 2 topline results in August 2024 from ongoing Phase 2/3 trial (EBO-301) in treatment-refractory Mycobacterium avium Complex (TR-MAC)


Phase 3 continues for 97 patients enrolled before the voluntary enrollment pause; lifting of the Phase 3 enrollment pause to be determined after review of unblinded Phase 2 data and discussions with the FDA


Cash, cash equivalents, and investments of $118.1 million at March 31, 2024

Menlo Park, CA – May 14, 2024 – AN2 Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANTX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing treatments for rare, chronic, and serious infectious diseases with high unmet needs, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

“The Phase 2 topline data, expected to be available in August, will include the first clinical efficacy data for epetraborole in patients with treatment-refractory MAC. The patients enrolled in EBO-301 are highly refractory with limited to no treatment options; and background regimens available provide little if any benefit,” said Eric Easom, Co-Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We hope to see data demonstrating that epetraborole on top of background therapy will show benefit in these toughest to treat patients. The Phase 2 data package will be critical to informing the path forward for epetraborole in patients with treatment refractory MAC.”

First Quarter & Recent Business Updates:


Epetraborole Pivotal Phase 2/3 Clinical Study in TR-MAC Lung Disease


This double-blind, placebo-controlled trial is comparing epetraborole plus a background regimen versus placebo plus background regimen in patients with TR-MAC lung disease. In February 2024, the Company announced that it had voluntarily paused Phase 3 enrollment in the seamless Phase 2/3 clinical trial, pending further data review. While the Phase 3 part of the trial is paused for new enrollment, the Company is continuing to dose currently enrolled patients (n=97) under the existing protocol. The voluntary pause was instituted following an analysis of blinded aggregate data from the ongoing Phase 2 study, which showed potentially lower than expected efficacy. A blinded review of the aggregate baseline patient demographics points to a highly refractory patient population with high incidence of resistance to background regimens, prolonged nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) lung disease and high levels of cavitary disease; the study population also includes patients who are refractory to Arikayce, the only FDA-approved drug for refractory NTM caused by MAC. The decision to pause Phase 3 enrollment was not due to safety concerns.


The Company expects to announce topline data from the Phase 2 part of the trial in August 2024. Continuation of enrollment in the Phase 3 part of the study will be determined after reviewing the unblinded Phase 2 data and following discussions with FDA.

Selected First Quarter Financial Results

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses: R&D expenses for the first quarter of 2024 were $14.7 million compared to $12.0 million for the same period during 2023 due to increased clinical trial expenses, personnel-related expenses, consulting and outside services, and other expenses, partially offset by lower chemistry manufacturing and controls expenses and lower costs associated with research studies.
General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses: G&A expenses for the first quarter of 2024 were $3.6 million, compared to $4.1 million for the same period during 2023 due to a decrease in professional and outside services related to IPO expenses in 2023 and a decrease in insurance expenses, partially offset by an increase in personnel-related expenses.



Other Income, Net: Other income, net for the first quarter of 2024 was $1.7 million, compared to $0.7 million for the same period during 2023 due to increased interest and investment income based on higher interest rates and higher cash, cash equivalents, and investment balances.
Net loss: Net loss for the first quarter of 2024 was $16.6 million, compared to $15.3 million for the same period during 2023.
Cash Position: The Company had cash, cash equivalents, and investments of $118.1 million at March 31, 2024.
