Impact of Coronavirus Pandemic


The ongoing global outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in significant governmental measures being implemented to control the spread of the virus and while the Company cannot predict their scope or the severity of the outbreak, these developments and measures could materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, the operations of the Company’s collaboration partners, and the Company’s results of operations and financial condition. The Company is closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all aspects of its business and has taken steps to minimize its impact on the Company’s business. Although COVID-19 has not had a material adverse impact on the Company’s operations and its clinical and preclinical programs, the extent to which COVID-19 ultimately impacts the Company’s business, results of operations or financial condition will depend on future developments which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, such as the duration of the outbreak, the occurrence of new mutations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, new information that may emerge concerning the severity of COVID-19 or the effectiveness of actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, among others. Certain of the Company’s collaboration partners have experienced shutdowns or other business disruptions. As a result, the Company’s ability to conduct its business in the manner and on the timelines presently planned could be materially or negatively affected, which could have a material adverse impact on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition.
