1. Organization and Description of Business
Description of the Business
KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing medicines for patients with neglected and rare diseases, with an ancillary focus on pediatric conditions, and on executing its Responsible Pricing Model in the commercialization of the Company’s product candidates that may be approved. The Company’s lead product candidate is benznidazole for the treatment of Chagas disease, a parasitic illness that can lead to long-term heart, intestinal and neurological problems. As more fully described in Note 6, the Company acquired certain worldwide rights to benznidazole on June 30, 2016. The Company is developing one of its proprietary monoclonal antibodies, lenzilumab (formerly known as KB003), for the treatment of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, and potentially for the treatment of juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML), both of which are rare hematologic cancers with high unmet medical need. The Company is exploring partnering opportunities to enable development of another of its proprietary monoclonal antibodies, ifabotuzumab (formerly known as KB004), for the treatment of certain rare solid and hematologic cancers. With a focus on neglected, rare and orphan diseases, the Company believes that it has the opportunity to benefit from various regulatory incentives, such as orphan drug exclusivity, breakthrough therapy designation, fast track designation, accelerated approval, priority review and priority review vouchers, where available, that provide for certain periods of exclusivity, expedited review and/or other benefits.
Liquidity and Going Concern
The Company has undergone a significant transformation in the last year. As a result of challenges facing it at the time, on December 29, 2015, the Company filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. On June 30, 2016, the Company’s Second Amended Plan of Reorganization, dated May 9, 2016, as amended (the “Plan”), became effective and the Company emerged from its Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. Refer to Note 2 for additional details regarding the Company’s bankruptcy proceedings.
The Company was incorporated on March 15, 2000 in California and reincorporated as a Delaware corporation in September 2001. All of the Company’s assets are located in California.
The Company has incurred significant losses and had an accumulated deficit of $240.6 million as of December 31, 2016. The Company has financed its operations primarily through the sale of equity securities, debt financings, interest income earned on cash and cash equivalents, grants and the payments received under its agreements with Novartis Pharma AG and Sanofi Pasteur S.A. (“Sanofi”). The Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) in February 2013. To date, none of the Company’s product candidates have been approved for sale and therefore the Company has not generated any revenue from product sales. Management expects operating losses to continue for the foreseeable future. As a result, the Company will continue to require additional capital through equity offerings, debt financing and/or payments under new or existing licensing or collaboration agreements. If sufficient funds are not available on acceptable terms when needed, the Company could be required to significantly reduce its operating expenses and delay, reduce the scope of, or eliminate one or more of its development programs. The Company’s ability to access capital when needed is not assured and, if not achieved on a timely basis, could materially harm its business, financial condition and results of operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016 were prepared on the basis of a going concern, which contemplates that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to meet its total liabilities of $9.1 million at December 31, 2016, and to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the availability of future funding. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
Delisting of Common Stock
On January 13, 2016, the Company’s common stock was suspended from the Nasdaq Global Market and began trading on the over-the-counter market under the KBIOQ symbol. On January 26, 2016, NASDAQ filed a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to complete the delisting of the common stock, and the delisting was effective on February 5, 2016. On June 30, 2016, upon emergence from bankruptcy, the ticker symbol for the trading of the Company’s common stock on the over-the-counter market reverted back to KBIO.
