RenovoRx Closes $11.1 Million Private Placement, Providing Cash Runway into 2026

With $17.2 million in gross proceeds raised since the beginning of 2024, RenovoRx has sufficient funding to advance pivotal Phase III clinical trial and expand development pipeline into additional cancer indications

RenovoRx, Inc. (“RenovoRx” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RNXT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel precision oncology therapies based on a local drug-delivery platform, today announced the closing of its previously announced private placement of approximately $11.1 million in gross proceeds.

Shaun Bagai, Chief Executive Officer of RenovoRx, stated, “We believe our recent financing achievements mark a critical milestone for RenovoRx. Our April and January 2024 private placements, in which we raised $17.2 million in total gross proceeds, strengthen our balance sheet and energize our drive towards knowable value creation events over the next two years. These include: first, the continuation of our pivotal Phase III TIGeR-PaC clinical trial in locally advanced pancreatic cancer towards a second interim readout and ultimate completion; second, the expansion of our TAMPclinical development pipeline into additional cancer indications; and third, our ongoing exploration of new commercial business development opportunities with our therapeutic technologies. These investments in our Company validate our vision to build a better way to treat difficult-to-access cancers for not only oncology patients, but their clinicians and loved ones, all as we seek to drive value for our stockholders.”

Mr. Bagai added, “We are proud of our achievements to date and grateful for the support of our existing and new investors. With this support, our team will continue its commitment to improving patients’ lives and lifespans by delivering therapies that have the potential to revolutionize the current paradigm of cancer care.”

The TIGeR-PaC study is an ongoing randomized multi-center study in locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) using the Company’s patented Trans-Arterial Micro-Perfusion (TAMP) platform to evaluate the Company’s first product candidate, RenovoGem, a novel oncology drug-device combination product. The study is comparing treatment with TAMP to the current standard of care (systemic intravenous chemotherapy). RenovoRx expects that the second interim analysis for this study will be triggered by the 52nd event in the trial, which is estimated to occur in late 2024.

Newbridge Securities Corporation acted as sole placement agent for the transaction. Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP acted as legal counsel to RenovoRx, and McGuireWoods LLP acted as legal counsel to Newbridge Securities Corporation.
