08:12 EDTXOMAXOMA initiates Phase 2 study of gevokizumab
XOMA announced gevokizumab will be tested in a Phase 2 study in patients with Type 2 diabetes and diabetic kidney disease, clinically referred to as diabetic nephropathy. The international, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study is expected to enroll 370 patients who will be randomized to receive gevokizumab or placebo for 52 weeks. The primary objective of this study is to detect the existence of an overall dose-response relationship of subcutaneously dosed gevokizumab on the measured glomerular filtration rate, an accurate measure of kidney function, at Week 52. The study also will determine gevokizumab's effect on a number of biological biomarkers assessing kidney function. Servier will fully sponsor the study's execution and cost.
06:33 EDTSHLDSears reports S-11 registration statement filed by Seritage Growth Properties
Sears Holdings announced that, in connection with its previously announced exploration of the formation of a real estate investment trust, or REIT, Seritage Growth Properties, a Maryland trust formed by the company, has filed a registration statement on Form S-11 with the SEC. The Registration Statement provides for a rights offering by Seritage intended to partially finance its purchase of approximately 254 of the company's properties, virtually all of which are operated as Sears and Kmart stores. As of January 31, Sears Holdings owned or leased 1,725 Kmart and Sears stores combined. Proceeds to the company of this sale are expected to exceed $2.5B. The company would in turn enter into a master lease agreement, pursuant to which it would lease the Sears and Kmart properties from Seritage and continue to operate its retail stores in those locations. The proceeds of the rights offering, together with debt and other financing which Seritage would obtain, would be used by Seritage to purchase the properties from the company. The subscription rights would be distributed pro rata to all stockholders of record of the company and entitle holders to purchase common shares of Seritage. The record date, subscription price, subscription ratio and other terms of the proposed rights offering will be announced prior to the commencement of the rights offering. The rights offering is currently anticipated to close by the end of Q2, and is subject to the approval of the board of Sears Holdings, market conditions and the satisfaction of certain other conditions. Sears Holdings may, at any time prior to the closing of the REIT transaction, decide to abandon the transaction or modify its terms.
