1. Description of Business
XOMA Corporation (referred to as “XOMA” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is a biotech royalty aggregator with a sizable portfolio of economic rights to future potential milestone and royalty payments associated with partnered pre-commercial therapeutic candidates. The Company’s portfolio was built through licensing its proprietary products and platforms from its legacy discovery and development business, combined with acquisitions of rights to future milestones and royalties that the Company has made since the royalty aggregator business model was implemented in 2017. The Company’s drug royalty aggregator business is focused on early to mid-stage clinical assets primarily in Phase 1 and 2 with blockbuster potential licensed to large-cap partners. The Company expects that most of its future revenue will be based on payments the Company may receive for milestones and royalties related to these programs.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had unrestricted and restricted cash of $72.2 million.

In June 2021, the Company repaid its outstanding debt obligations to Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) and Novartis Pharma AG (“Novartis”), for a total of $17.1 million (Note 8).
