Note 1—Nature of Operations and Basis of Presentation

 

OncoSec Medical Incorporated (the “Company”) was incorporated under the name of Netventory Solutions Inc., in the state of Nevada on February 8, 2008 to pursue the business of inventory management solutions.  On March 1, 2011, Netventory Solutions Inc. completed a merger with its subsidiary OncoSec Medical Incorporated and changed its name to OncoSec Medical Incorporated.  On March 24, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of certain technology and related assets from Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Inovio”) pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) dated March 14, 2011.  The acquired technology and related assets relate to the use of drug-medical device combination products for the treatment of various cancers.  Since this acquisition, the Company has focused its efforts in the biotechnology industry and abandoned its efforts in the online inventory services industry.  Prior to the acquisition of the assets from Inovio, the Company had been inactive since March 2010 and had no continuing operations other than those of a company seeking a business opportunity.

 

The Company has not produced any revenues from the assets it acquired from Inovio and the Company has not commenced planned principal operations. The Company is a hybrid device and gene-therapy biotechnology company focused on the discovery, the design, the development and the commercialization of innovative and proprietary medical approaches (principally immunotherapy) for the treatment of cancer where currently approved therapies are inadequate based on their efficacy or side effects. The Company’s technology includes intellectual property relating to certain delivery technologies, which the Company refers to as ImmunoPulse (“ImmunoPulse”), a therapeutic approach that is based on the use of an electroporation delivery device in combination with DNA-encoded immune targets to treat cancer.  The Company’s ImmunoPulse product candidates are based on the Company’s proprietary DNA-based immunotherapy technology, which is designed to stimulate the human immune system, resulting in systemic anti-tumor immune responses.

 

During the quarter, the Company expanded its research capabilities to further assist in the research of next-generation devices, novel electroporation technologies and combination studies to facilitate the advancement of ImmunoPulse and the pursuit of other potential future product candidates. The Company’s research and development activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including failing to secure additional funding to continue the advancement of its product candidates and failing to commercialize its product candidates before similar or competing technology is developed by competitors.

 

Effective October 28, 2014, OncoSec Medical Therapeutics Incorporated (“OncoSec Medical Therapeutics”), which was acquired on June 3, 2011 for a total purchase price of $1,000 and incorporated in Delaware on July 2, 2010, was dissolved. There were no significant transactions related to this subsidiary since its inception.
