Nationwide Children’s gene therapy spinoff raises up to $105M, with option to be acquired

Sarepta Therapeutics Inc. is investing up to $105 million in the latest gene therapy spinoff from Nationwide Children’s Hospital – and signed an option to acquire the company for an undisclosed but higher amount if clinical trial results are promising.

Myonexus Therapeutics Inc. gets $60 million upfront to start patient trials, which are conducted at the Columbus pediatric hospital. The remaining $45 million will be paid out over two years if the company reaches performance milestones during the trials. Sarepta may exercise its option to acquire the company after that.
