Notes to Unaudited Financial Statements
Note 1 - Organization, Description of Business and Liquidity and Capital Resources
Mustang Bio, Inc. (the “Company” or “Mustang”) was incorporated in Delaware on March 13, 2015. Mustang is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on translating today’s medical breakthroughs in cell and gene therapy into potential cures for hematologic cancers, solid tumors and rare genetic diseases. The Company may acquire rights to these technologies by licensing the rights or otherwise acquiring an ownership interest in the technologies, funding their research and development and eventually either out-licensing or bringing the technologies to market.
The Company is a majority-controlled subsidiary of Fortress Biotech, Inc. (“Fortress” or “Parent”).
The Company’s common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Global Market and trades under the symbol “MBIO.”
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company has incurred substantial operating losses and expects to continue to incur significant operating losses for the foreseeable future and may never become profitable. As of September 30, 2022, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $309.7 million.
The Company has funded its operations to date primarily through the sale of equity and via debt raises, including its loan and financing agreement with Runway Growth Finance Corp. (the “Lender”), herein referred to as the (“Term Loan”). The Company expects to continue to use the proceeds from previous financing transactions primarily for general corporate purposes, including financing the Company’s growth, developing new or existing product candidates, and funding capital expenditures, acquisitions and investments. The Company currently anticipates that its cash and cash equivalents balances at September 30, 2022, are sufficient to fund its anticipated operating cash requirements for at least one year from the filing date of this Form 10-Q.
The Company will be required to expend significant funds in order to advance the development of its product candidates. The Company will require additional financings through equity and debt offerings, collaborations and licensing arrangements or other sources to fully develop, prepare regulatory filings, obtain regulatory approvals and commercialize its existing and any new product candidates. The rising interest rate environment may cause the Company to pay more interest on the Term Loan, which could lead to higher operating expenses.
In addition to the foregoing, the Company has experienced a moderate impact on its long-term development timeline and its liquidity due to the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Company has experienced some delays in clinical trial activities, as well as in the availability and delivery of certain consumables and raw materials used in its laboratory and manufacturing operations due to the negative impact of COVID-19 on the global supply chain.
