Immix Biopharma Announces Share Repurchase Program
LOS ANGELES, May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Immix Biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMMX) (“ImmixBio”, “Company”, “We” or “Us”), a biopharmaceutical company pioneering Tissue-Specific Therapeutics (TSTx)TM targeting oncology and immuno-dysregulated diseases, today announced that its board of directors has authorized a share repurchase program to acquire up to $1 million of the Company’s common stock. The Company may purchase common stock on the open market, through privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise, in compliance with the rules of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had approximately $18 million of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities. The Company had approximately 13.9 million shares of common stock outstanding as of April 15, 2022.
“We are confident that with the $24.2 million gross proceeds raised in our recent IPO, ImmixBio is sufficiently capitalized to reach what we believe will be 2 upcoming inflection points: clinical data from IMX-110 monotherapy clinical trial, as well as clinical data from the IMX-110 combined with BeiGene anti-PD-1 tislelizumab clinical trial,” said Ilya Rachman, MD PhD, CEO of ImmixBio. “The current market situation allows us to capture additional value for all shareholders through this measured buyback program. Our interests have always been, and continue to be, aligned with all IMMX shareholders.”

The timing, amount of shares repurchased and prices paid for the stock under this program will depend on market conditions as well as corporate and regulatory limitations, including blackout period restrictions. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of shares, and the repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion.
About Immix Biopharma, Inc.
Immix Biopharma, Inc. (ImmixBioTM) (Nasdaq: IMMX) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering a novel class of Tissue-Specific Therapeutics (TSTx)TM targeting oncology and immuno-dysregulated diseases. Our lead asset IMX-110, currently in Phase 1b/2a clinical trials, holds orphan drug designation (ODD) by the FDA for soft tissue sarcoma, and has received Rare Pediatric Disease Designation (RPDD) for the treatment of rhabdomyosarcoma, a life-threatening form of cancer in children. RPDD qualifies ImmixBio to receive fast track review and a priority review voucher (PRV) at the time of marketing approval of IMX-110. Our proprietary SMARxT Tissue-SpecificTM Platform produces drug candidates that circulate in the bloodstream, exit through tumor blood vessels and simultaneously attack all 3 components of the tumor micro-environment (TME). We believe ImmixBio’s TME NormalizationTM technology severs the lifelines between the tumor and its metabolic and structural support. Learn more at www.immixbio.com.
