Calliditas Therapeutics: Interim Report Q2, 2020

Successful capital raise on NASDAQ

STOCKHOLM, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- "In June we successfully closed a $90m U.S. IPO on NASDAQ, which including the greenshoe that was exercised in July, resulted in gross proceeds of $97m in total. This successful and pioneering transaction, which was the first time a Swedish life science company raised capital on NASDAQ Global Select in an IPO, secured the funding we believe will be necessary to fully complete our Phase 3 study and, if approved,  commercially launch the product in the U.S. The U.S. IPO also gave us added flexibility to pursue additional development initiatives related either to our existing pipeline or potential external additions.

In Q2 as we were faced with some extreme circumstances due to COVID-19, we pulled out all the stops to ensure that any impact on the NefIgArd clinical trial was mitigated and any serious disruption kept to a minimum. Special task forces were created, communication and collaboration with our global network of national coordinators were intensified and every detail of every part of the trial was reviewed, assessed and where needed, mitigating solutions were implemented. As a result, the trial remains on plan to report top line data in Q4 as the first Phase 3 clinical trial in IgA nephropathy to do so on a global basis. We are excited and proud to be in this position under these extreme circumstances."

Renée Aguiar-Lucander, CEO
