NOTE 1 – GENERAL
BiomX Inc., (individually, and together with its subsidiaries, BiomX Ltd. and RondinX Ltd., the “Company” or “BiomX”) was incorporated as a blank check company on November 1, 2017, under the laws of the state of Delaware, for the purpose of entering into a merger, stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities.
On July 16, 2019, the Company entered into a merger agreement with BiomX Ltd. (“BiomX Israel”), a company incorporated under the laws of Israel, CHAC Merger Sub Ltd. (“Merger Sub”) and Shareholder Representative Services LLC, as amended on October 11, 2019, pursuant to which, among other things, BiomX Israel merged with Merger Sub, with BiomX Israel being the surviving entity in accordance with the Israeli Companies Law, 5759-1999, as a wholly owned direct subsidiary of BiomX Inc.
On October 28, 2019, the Company consummated the acquisition of 100% of the outstanding shares of BiomX Israel (the “Recapitalization Transaction”). Pursuant to the aforementioned merger agreement, in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of BiomX Israel, the Company issued to the shareholders of BiomX Israel a total of 15,069,058 shares of the Company’s Common Stock representing approximately 65% of the total shares issued and outstanding after giving effect to the Recapitalization Transaction. As a result of the Recapitalization Transaction, BiomX Israel became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. As the shareholders of BiomX Israel received the largest ownership interest in the Company, BiomX Israel was determined to be the “accounting acquirer” in the Recapitalization Transaction.
Following the Recapitalization Transaction, the Company retained $60,100 held in a trust account, after redemptions of shares held by certain shareholders in connection with the initial public offering of Chardan Healthcare Acquisition Corp.
The Company’s shares of Common Stock, units, and warrants are traded on the NYSE American under the symbols PHGE, PHGE.U, and PHGE.WS, respectively.
On February 6, 2020, the Company’s Common Stock also began trading on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange.
BiomX is developing both natural and engineered phage cocktails designed to target and destroy harmful bacteria in chronic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, atopic dermatitis, inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer. BiomX discovers and validates proprietary bacterial targets and customizes phage compositions against these targets. The Company’s headquarters are located in Ness Ziona, Israel.
To date, the Company has not generated revenue from its operations. Based on the Company’s current cash and commitments, management believes that the Company’s current cash and cash equivalents are sufficient to fund its operations for more than 12 months from the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements and sufficient to fund its operations necessary to continue development activities.
Consistent with its continuing research and development activities, the Company expects to continue to incur additional losses for the foreseeable future. The Company plans to continue to fund its current operations, as well as other development activities relating to additional product candidates, through future issuances of debt and/or equity securities, loans and possibly additional grants from the Israel Innovation Authority (“IIA”) and other government institutions. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital in the equity and debt markets is dependent on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the market demand for the Company’s Common Stock, which itself is subject to a number of development and business risks and uncertainties, as well as the uncertainty that the Company would be able to raise such additional capital at a price or on terms that are favorable to it.
The entire disclosure for the nature of an entity's business, major products or services, principal markets including location, and the relative importance of its operations in each business and the basis for the determination, including but not limited to, assets, revenues, or earnings. For an entity that has not commenced principal operations, disclosures about the risks and uncertainties related to the activities in which the entity is currently engaged and an understanding of what those activities are being directed toward.
