BRYAN, Texas and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iBio, Inc. (NYSEA:IBIO) (“iBio” or the “Company”), an AI-driven innovator of precision antibody immunotherapies, announced today the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.
Revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 were $nil, compared to $1.9 million in fiscal 2022. Total operating expenses, not including the loss from discontinued operations, were $29.3 million in fiscal 2023, a 7% decrease from $31.6 million in fiscal 2022. iBio's consolidated net loss for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 was $65.0 million, an increased loss of $14.6 million compared to 2022, due primarily to increased loss from discontinued operations. iBio held cash and cash equivalents of $4.3 million, and restricted cash of $3.3 million, as of June 30, 2023.
Pursuant to the disclosure requirements of the NYSE American Company Guidelines Sections 401(h) and 610(b), the Company advises that its audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, included in its annual report on Form 10-K filed today with the SEC, contained an audit opinion from its independent registered public accounting firm related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. This announcement is made pursuant to NYSE American LLC Company Guide Section 610(b), which requires public announcement of the receipt of an audit opinion containing a going concern paragraph.
Subsequent to fiscal 2023 year end, iBio announced an amendment to its credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Woodforest National Bank (the “Agreement”), extending the Agreement’s maturity date from November 1, 2023 to the earlier of December 31, 2023 or the acceleration of maturity of the term loan in accordance with the Credit Agreement. The extension of the maturity date was intended to afford the Company sufficient time to close the pending sale of its cGMP biologics manufacturing facility (the “CDMO Facility”), which is anticipated to occur before the end of calendar 2023. There can be no assurance that the closing conditions for the sale of the CDMO Facility will be satisfied.
“Once the pending sale of the CDMO Facility closes, and the Woodforest loan is paid in full, for which there can be no assurance, it will complete the divestiture of iBio’s contract development and manufacturing business in Texas, and extend our cash runway to help support continued advancement of our AI drug discovery platform and immunotherapy pipeline out of our research and development center in California,” said Martin Brenner, DVM, Ph.D., iBio’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer.
