How did Chimeric perform?
Investors led Chimeric shares to close the day unchanged despite the company recapping its achievements and providing a financial update.
In the release, Chimeric reported a number of highlights, signalling why its shares have surged since listing on the ASX.
Chimeric declared $23.6 million in cash at the end of the March quarter. This is a significant increase from the $65,000 achieved at 31 December 2020. The company noted the funds will be used to progress its clinical trials of CLTX CAR T and begin the development of a cell therapy pipeline.
The net cash used in operating activities stood at $5.4 million, predominately due to the one-off fee paid to the City of Hope. This compares to the $1.9 million recorded in the prior quarter. Most of the fees were allocated towards change of control fee, administrative and corporate costs.
Net cash used in investing activities totalled $2.6 million, which was relatively in line with the December quarter. The payment relates to the second instalment to the City of Hope licence agreement.
The company re-touched on its CLTX CAR T clinical trials, with the second patient cohort now commencing a higher dosing level.
In addition, Chimeric reverted back to its significant management appointments in which several distinguished experts joined the board.
