The Company's cash position of $2.7 million as at 30 September is expected to provide adequate funding until the next milestone payment is received under the Company's Progenza licence agreement with AGC Inc. of Japan.
The sources of funding for the Company over the next 18 months include: milestone payments and anticipated clinical licensing opportunities for Progenza; shareholder loan repayments relating to the funding of employee options exercised as part of the IPO in 2013; ongoing R&D Tax Incentives including forward funding arrangements where necessary and options exercised. These sources of cash are expected to provide sufficient funding to support the Company's R&D, clinical trials and operating activities for FY'19 and into FY'20.
Further licensing opportunities may provide additional funding for incremental activities.
