|Item 8.01|| |
On March 10, 2023, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) issued a press release stating that Silicon Valley Bank, Santa Clara, California (“SVB”) was closed by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, which appointed the FDIC as receiver. To protect insured deposits, the FDIC created the Deposit Insurance National Bank of Santa Clara (“DINB”). At the time of closing, the FDIC as receiver immediately transferred all insured deposits of SVB.
Landos Biopharma, Inc. (the “Company”) maintains a cash balance of low single digit millions with SVB. According to the FDIC, all insured depositors will have full access to their insured deposits no later than Monday, March 13, 2023. The FDIC will pay uninsured depositors an advance dividend within the next week. Uninsured depositors will receive a receivership certificate for the remaining amount of their uninsured funds. As the FDIC sells the assets of SVB, future dividend payments may be made to uninsured depositors.
The Company reaffirms its estimate that its existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities will be sufficient to fund its planned operations into the first half of 2025.
