Xenetic Biosciences, Inc. Reports Full Year 2023 Financial Results

  • Continued advancement of DNase-based oncology program towards Phase 1 clinical study for the treatment of pancreatic carcinoma and other locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors
  • Ended the year with $9.0 million of cash to fund operations

FRAMINGHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / March 22, 2024 / Xenetic Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:XBIO) ("Xenetic" or the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing innovative immune-oncology technologies addressing hard to treat cancers, today reported its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Recent Highlights

  • Entered into a Research Funding Agreement and a Material Transfer Agreement with the University of Virginia ("UVA") to advance the development of the DNase program.
  • Generated growing body of encouraging preclinical data guiding the approach to a first in human trial for systemic DNase-based oncology platform.

"We continued to make steady progress over the course of 2023 and are well positioned to continue on that pathway in 2024. With the encouraging preclinical data we continue to see with our DNase-based oncology platform, we are making noteworthy strides toward our first in human trial. We believe that our DNase platform, comprising multiple treatment modalities, has the potential to generate much needed therapies for pancreatic carcinoma and other locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors, and we are excited to unlock the full potential of our assets," commented Jeffrey Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of Xenetic.

Summary of Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2023

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2023 was approximately $4.1 million. Research and development expenses for the year ended December 31, 2023 decreased by $1.3 million, or 26.7%, to $3.5 million from $4.8 million in the prior year period. This decrease was primarily due to in-process research and development expense of $1.8 million in 2022 associated with our licensing of the DNase platform for which there was no similar expense in 2023. Royalty payments of approximately $2.5 million were received from our sublicense with Takeda Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd in the year ended December 31, 2023, representing an approximate 48.8% increase over the same period in 2022. General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2023 were $3.6 million, decreasing by approximately $0.1 million, or 2.5%, compared to the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in employee related costs, substantially offset by increases in consulting and legal costs during the year ended December 31, 2023 compared to the prior year.

The Company ended the year with approximately $9.0 million of cash.
