Sequoia Vaccines, a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company based in St. Louis, Missouri, has recently filed for an initial public offering (IPO) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company aims to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol SQVI.
Focus on UTI Vaccine and More
Sequoia Vaccines’ primary focus lies in the development of a vaccine for preventing recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs). In addition to this promising clinical candidate, the company is also actively working on the development of small molecules for treating cancers and bacterial infections.
While Sequoia Vaccines has yet to generate revenue, its dedication to groundbreaking research is evident. In 2022 alone, the company reported a loss of $4.19 million, or 34 cents per share. Nevertheless, this IPO will allow Sequoia Vaccines to secure funding and drive its advancement.
With the proceeds from the IPO, Sequoia Vaccines plans to allocate funds towards various critical areas. These include funding a Phase 2 trial for the UTI vaccine candidate, moving preclinical product candidates towards human studies, and supporting working capital.
