Investment summary

We expect OXB’s strategic vision to come to further fruition through 2017/18. Novartis’s CAR-T Kymriah (OXB provide the lentiviral vector) is now approved (in pediatric ALL) by the FDA with approvals in Europe and in DLBCL expected in the near future. OXB should now start earning royalties and substantial manufacturing fees from Kymriah. The possible spin-out/out-licensing of its priority development pipeline assets is ongoing (OXB-102, OXB-202, and OXB-302). As of 31st July, OXB have £22.1m in cash.
