IMV Inc. (the “Corporation” or “IMV”) (NASDAQ: IMV; TSX: IMV), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of immune-educating therapies based on its novel DPX® platform to treat solid and hematologic cancers, announced that its common shares commence trading post consolidation today.
As announced and previously approved by shareholders on December 7, 2022, the Corporation has consolidated its outstanding common shares on the basis of one new common share for every 10 outstanding common shares. The consolidation has taken effect on December 7, 2022, and the Corporation’s common shares commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the name IMV Inc. on a post-consolidation basis at the opening of markets today.
The consolidation is primarily intended to bring the Corporation into compliance with the minimum required closing bid price for continued listing on Nasdaq of US$1.00 per share.
IMV Inc. is a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company advancing a portfolio of therapies based on the Corporation’s immune-educating platform, DPX®. Through a differentiated mechanism of action, the DPX platform delivers instruction to the immune system to generate a specific, robust, and persistent immune response. IMV’s lead candidate, maveropepimut-S (MVP-S), delivers antigenic peptides from survivin, a well-recognized cancer antigen commonly overexpressed in advanced cancers. MVP-S also delivers an innate immune activator and a universal CD4 T cell helper peptide. These elements foster maturation of antigen presenting cells as well as robust activation of CD8 T cell effector and memory function. MVP-S treatment has been well tolerated and has demonstrated defined clinical benefit in multiple cancer indications as well as the activation of a targeted and sustained, survivin-specific anti-tumor immune response. MVP-S is currently being evaluated in clinical trials for hematologic and solid cancers, including Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) as well as ovarian, bladder and breast cancers. IMV is also developing a second immunotherapy leveraging the DPX immune delivery platform, DPX-SurMAGE. This dual-targeted immunotherapy combines antigenic peptides for both the survivin and MAGE-A9 cancer proteins to elicit immune responses to these two distinct cancer antigens simultaneously. A Phase 1 clinical trial in bladder cancer, using MVP-S or DPX-SurMAGE, was initiated in early 2022. For more information, visit www.imv-inc.com and connect with us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
