DALLAS, June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), a life science focused specialty finance company, announced today that Chairman and CEO Winston Black will present via webcast at the Life Sciences Investor Forum being held June 25, 2020.
Details of SWK's presentation are as follows:
Life Sciences Investor Forum
Thursday, June 25, 2020
11:30 a.m., ET
This will be a live, interactive online event where investors are invited to ask the company questions in real-time. If attendees are not able to join the event live on the day of the conference, an archived webcast will also be made available after the event.
During the presentation, Mr. Black will discuss SWK Holdings' business strategy, which focuses on providing capital that supports growth opportunities for small and mid-sized life sciences companies through the creation of unique financing structures. These deals typically range in size from $5 million to $20 million, a market segment often ignored by other structured finance companies.
As of May 11, 2020, and since inception of the strategy, SWK and its partners have executed transactions with 36 different parties under its specialty finance strategy, funding an aggregate $540.1 million in various financial products across the life science sector. SWK's portfolio includes senior and subordinated debt backed by royalties and synthetic royalties paid by companies in the life science sector, and purchased royalties generated by sales of life science products and related intellectual property
On August 26, 2019, SWK acquired Enteris BioPharma, Inc. ("Enteris"), a biotechnology company developing innovative oral formulations of hard-to-dose peptide- and small molecule-based therapies built around its proprietary drug delivery technology, Peptelligence®. Presently, many drugs in these categories can only be administered via intravenous injection, which can limit market opportunities for the drug maker and reduce patient compliance. Enteris licenses its Peptelligence technology to pharmaceutical partners to use to improve the solubility of hard-to-dose therapeutics.
