1. Organization and Description of Business
NeuBase Therapeutics, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company” or “NeuBase”) is developing a modular peptide-nucleic acid (“PNA”) antisense oligo (“PATrOL™”) platform to address genetic diseases, with a single, cohesive approach. The PATrOL™-enabled anti-gene therapies are designed to improve upon current genetic medicine strategies by combining the advantages of synthetic approaches with the precision of antisense technologies. NeuBase plans to use its platform to address diseases which have a genetic source, with an initial focus on Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (“DM1”), Huntington’s Disease (“HD”) and oncology applications.
NeuBase is a preclinical-stage biopharmaceutical company and continues to develop its clinical and regulatory strategy with its internal research and development team with a view toward prioritizing market introduction as quickly as possible. NeuBase’s programs are NT-0100 in HD, NT-0200 in DM1 and NT-0300 in KRAS-driven cancers:
NeuBase believes its three aforementioned programs address unmet needs for diseases that currently have no effective therapeutics that target the etiologies of these conditions. NeuBase further believes there is a large opportunity in the U.S. and European markets for drugs in these areas.
The Company has had no revenues from product sales and has incurred operating losses since inception. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $47.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, and during the three months ended December 31, 2021, incurred a net loss of $7.7 million and used $5.3 million of cash in operating activities.
The Company expects to continue to incur significant operating losses for the foreseeable future and may never become profitable. As a result, the Company will likely need to raise additional capital through one or more of the following: the issuance of additional debt or equity or the completion of a licensing transaction for one or more of the Company’s pipeline assets. Management believes it has sufficient working capital on hand to fund operations through at least the next twelve months from the date these consolidated financial statements were available to be issued. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in acquiring additional funding, that the Company’s projections of its future working capital needs will prove accurate, or that any additional funding would be sufficient to continue operations in future years.
The entire disclosure for the basis of accounting, or basis of presentation, used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS).
