The registered direct offering will raise about $120 million in gross proceeds that iTeos Therapeutics will use to “advance its clinical programmes and preclinical pipeline”. 

Part of the proceeds will go to general corporate purposes as well, as per the press release on Friday. 

$ITOS expects the financing that is led by Boxer Capital and RA Capital Management (existing investors) to close within the next week provided that it satisfies the customary closing conditions. 

The biotech firm had $595 million in cash and equivalents (including investments) at the end of March 2024. Wall Street currently has a consensus “buy” rating on iTeos Therapeutics shares that do not pay a dividend at writing.
