Innate Pharma's American depositary receipts rose after the company said Sanofi had exercised its option to license a natural killer cell engager program in solid tumors from Innate's ANKET platform.

The stock was up 14% at $2.79 in premarket trading. Shares had fallen by a third year-to-date when the market closed Monday.

The biopharmaceutical company said early Tuesday morning that the licensing comes pursuant to the terms of a research collaboration and license agreement signed in December 2022.

After a research collaboration period, Sanofi will be responsible for development, manufacturing and commercialization, Innate said, adding that Sanofi still has the option under the license agreement for one additional ANKET target.
