NOTE 15 – IN-PROCESS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
In-process research and development represent the fair value of the Company’s legacy program, Evofosfamide, which was acquired as a part of the merger agreement with Threshold. For more information refer to Note 1 “Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies”.
Fair value of In-process research and development is estimated based upon internal evaluation of each asset that includes quantitative analyses of net revenue and cash flows, review of recent sales of similar assets and market responses based upon discussions in connection with offers received from potential buyers. Certain factors used for these types of nonrecurring fair value measurements are considered Level 3 inputs. The Company obtained a fair value estimate, from a third party specialist as of August 1, 2019, and determined the asset was impaired and the value was not fully recoverable. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded a related impairment of $22.1 million. Future write-downs of the asset are possible based upon the amount of proceeds from an eventual sale of the asset.
Additionally, the Company has reclassified the remaining $4.5 million to In-process research and development - held for sale as the Company plans to sell the asset within the next year.
