1. Description of Business

XOMA Corporation, 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 commercial and pre-commercial therapeutic candidates. The Company’s portfolio was built through the acquisition of rights to future milestone payments, royalties and commercial payments, since its royalty aggregator business model was implemented in 2017 combined with out-licensing its proprietary products and platforms from its legacy discovery and development business. The Company’s drug royalty aggregator business is primarily focused on early to mid-stage clinical assets in Phase 1 and 2 with significant commercial sales potential that are licensed to large-cap partners. XOMA also acquires milestone and royalty revenue streams on late-stage or commercial assets that are designed to address unmet markets or have a therapeutic advantage, have long duration of market exclusivity, and are expected to generate royalty or milestone payments to the Company in a relatively short timeframe. The Company expects most of its future revenue to be based on milestone payments the Company may receive for milestones and royalties associated with these programs.

Liquidity and Financial Condition

The Company has incurred significant operating losses and negative cash flows from operations since its inception. As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $142.4 million primarily related to financing cash inflows received in December 2023 pursuant to the Blue Owl Loan Agreement (see Note 8).

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $136.2 million and restricted cash of $6.2 million. As of March 31, 2024, $0.2 million of restricted cash was classified as current and $6.0 million was classified as non-current. The restricted cash balance may only be used to pay interest expense, administrative fees and other allowable expenses pursuant to the Blue Owl Loan.

Based on the Company’s current cash balance and its planned spending, such as milestone and royalty acquisitions, the Company has evaluated and concluded its financial condition is sufficient to fund its planned operations and commitments and contractual obligations for a period of at least one year following the date that these condensed consolidated financial statements are issued.
