1. Description of Business
XOMA Corporation (referred to as “XOMA” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, has a long history of discovering and developing innovative therapeutic candidates derived from its unique platform of antibody technologies. XOMA’s business is to acquire royalty rights from other biotech companies, hold on to these rights and let them mature in the hands of these partners. Over the Company’s extensive history, it built a pipeline of fully-funded programs discovered by its licensees and partners from direct use of the Company’s proprietary antibody discovery platform and from product candidates it discovered and advanced prior to licensing them to licensees who assumed the responsibilities of subsequent development, regulatory approval and commercialization. Fully-funded programs are those for which the Company’s partners pay the development and commercialization costs. As licensees advance these programs, the Company is eligible for potential milestone and/or royalty payments. As part of the Company’s royalty aggregator business model, the Company will continue to expand its pipeline of fully-funded programs by acquiring potential milestone and royalty revenue streams on additional product candidates.
Liquidity and Financial Condition
The Company has incurred significant operating losses and negative cash flows from operations since its inception. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had cash of $39.7 million. Based on the Company’s current cash balance and its ability to control discretionary spending, such as royalty acquisitions, the Company has evaluated and concluded its financial condition is sufficient to fund its planned operations for a period of at least one year following the date that these condensed consolidated financial statements are issued.
