Wainwright & Co. acting as placement agent. The report also noted that the company’s primary creditor, the European Investment Bank (“EIB”), is considering favorably adjusting the terms of its financial facility contract with Scinai in order to extend the cash runway and address a NASDAQ minimum shareholders’ equity compliance issue.
The announcement said that formal feedback from EIB management regarding a definitive amendment to the facility could come as soon as this month. In addition, this month the company closed its first contract to provide CDMO services and is in advanced contract discussions with other potential clients. The report also noted that Scinai is aggressively advancing the NanoAb preclinical development with meaningful ex vivo results anticipated in Q4 2023; Scinai is also pursuing a strategic partnership for its COVID-19 self-administered inhaled NanoAb, which showed highly promising in vivo results in animals as both a therapeutic and prophylactic treatment. “I thank the EIB for their ongoing support and cooperation,” said Scinai Immunotherapeutics CEO Amir Reichman in the press release. “As the lending arm of the European Union, the EIB’s mission includes providing financing to support medical research and improve healthcare. The anticipated adjustment of our financial facility agreement with the EIB will provide much-needed relief to our financial position, thereby helping to clear the path towards developing Scinai into a company that provides significant benefits to patients and investors.”
