Tailwinds’ Take: I love it when companies decide not to dilute their investors. ITUS’ model is one of partnerships and joint-ventures. This is very positive long-term for shareholders. Plus, love this quote, “many exciting opportunities ahead of us.” 2018 could be a big year for ITUS.
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — ITUS Corporation (NASDAQ: ITUS), announced today that it has terminated its at-the-market equity program (“ATM Offering”) with B. Riley FBR, Inc. The Company had not sold any shares, and will no longer offer any shares, under this program.
“With over a year’s worth of cash based on our current business plan and many exciting opportunities ahead of us, we no longer feel that the ATM Offering is necessary,” stated Dr. Amit Kumar, President and Chief Executive Officer of ITUS. “While the continued development of Cchek™ and commencement of our ovarian cancer CAR-T therapeutic program will require additional resources, we believe that we are in a position to support both programs in the near term and that our longer-term needs will be better addressed through strategic partnerships and other corporate transactions,” added Dr. Kumar.
ITUS, a cancer-focused biotechnology company, is harnessing the body’s immune system in the fight against cancer. Its wholly owned subsidiary, Anixa Diagnostics Corporation, is developing the CchekTM platform, a series of non-invasive blood tests for the early detection of solid tumor based cancers, which is based on the body’s immunological response to the presence of a malignancy. Its majority owned subsidiary, Certainty Therapeutics, Inc., is developing CAR-T based immuno-therapy drugs which genetically engineer a patient’s own immune cells to fight cancer. ITUS also continually examines emerging technologies in complementary or related fields for further development and commercialization. Additional information is available at www.ITUScorp.com.
