RenovoRx Announces $11.1 Million at Market Private Placement

  • Cash position now expected to fund current operating plan into 2026
  • Financing provides cash runway to advance the ongoing pivotal Phase III TIGeR-PaC trial through the second interim readout and towards completion of the trial
  • Financing also enables the expansion of RenovoRx’s TAMP™ (Trans-Arterial Micro-Perfusion) clinical development pipeline into additional cancer indications

RenovoRx, Inc. (“RenovoRx” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RNXT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel precision oncology therapies based on a local drug-delivery platform, today announced the execution of definitive subscription agreements with accredited investors for a private placement which is expected to result in gross proceeds of approximately $11.1 million to RenovoRx, before deducting offering expenses.

The proceeds from this financing, in addition to RenovoRx’s previously announced private placement on January 29, 2024 for gross proceeds of approximately $6.1 million, extend the Company’s cash runway into 2026. The financing allows RenovoRx to advance its lead program, the pivotal Phase III TIGeR-PaC clinical trial in locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC), through the second interim readout and towards completion of the trial. The TIGeR-PaC study is an ongoing randomized multi-center study in LAPC using RenovoRx’s proprietary TAMP (Trans-Arterial Micro-Perfusion) therapy platform to evaluate its first product candidate, RenovoGem™, a novel oncology drug-device combination product. The study is comparing treatment with TAMP to the current standard of care (systemic intravenous chemotherapy). RenovoRx expects that the second interim analysis for this study will be triggered by the 52nd event in the trial, which is estimated to occur in late 2024.

Proceeds from the financing are also expected to enable the expansion of the TAMP clinical development pipeline into additional cancer indications.

The definite subscription agreements were executed based on the closing price of RenovoRx’s common stock on April 4, 2024, and the private placement is expected to close on April 11, 2024, subject to customary closing conditions. Newbridge Securities Corporation is acting as sole placement agent for the transaction.
