wageslave: Marcus, just trying to stimulate some necessary debate on this moribund thread that seems to exist in a bubble with no relation to the share price (fall) or reflection on where this company is heading. Have made money in the past here and would like to see the company flourish. However, the past year has been little more that disastrous if you consider the share price - and that is what it's all about if you are an investor. Not just pie in the sky, if you get my drift.

wageslave: Doesn't seem to occur to any of you that this business is in a complete and utter mess. Hence the share price falls and dodgy funding. They should have raised capital when the share price was a lot higher and not diluted us so much. 16 years and not one drug brought to market and eye watering levels of funding!

wageslave: Seems that the private investor community (including myself) is feeling pretty down and out with OXB as another fund raising and dilution set the share price back into the doldrums, recording a 70% fall in 18 months. Albeit from a recent peak.The information given by OXB also lacks a degree of clarity. From being promised a profitable manufacturing operation 18 months ago we now appear to have expanded manufacturing, but when these activities actually turn a profit seems to be anyone's guess. Drug development and eventual licencing seems as far away as ever.The only positive, as many have mentioned, is the fact there are still institutions willing to stump up cash to keep the show on the road.Time for some blue sky thinking, perhaps?Do OXB:1. Carry on with business as usual, continuing on their present course and hope they can avoid another funding cycle groundhog day in the not too distant future with a blockbuster drug discovery or turning significant profits on the manufacturing side?2. Split into 2 firms. One profitable, dealing with the manufacturing of gene therapy products and the other with drug discovery. Possibly involving another fund raise or IPO for the drug development side.3. Find a buyer to take us all out of misery who can then look at the options themself.As we know where the company intends to take things for the next 12 months it will be business as usual. But at the end of that period or when the latest funding runs out, I do think a serious review of the business will be incumbent on the board of directors. Let's hope it doesn't come to that and the writing isn't on the wall.

harry s truman: Interesting to note that it's a 15 day process Phil, I often wondered how long it took to do a batch. Pram, In post 20879 I went through all OXB's recent releases to see what they actually forecast for 2016. Then in the following post had a few afterthoughts to cover unknowns / unexpected news, but it's mainly just the stuff that they claimed to be expecting. I think there will be slip (which should be OXB's motto), but they may get some of it. Harry S Truman 24 Jul '16 - 20:25 - 20879 of 21071 I always expect it tomorrow (except on weekends). 2016 potential newsflow (In-­house priority products) • OXB-­102 (ProSavin Mk 2) Phase I/II first patient expected dosed in Q3 (we are in Q3). Same sites to be used as last time (UK/France) 30 patients (6 in each of the 3 dose cohorts and then 12 more to confirm the best dose - just as last time). • OXB-­202 (EncorStat) Phase I/II study CTA (Clinical Trial Authorisation) for 40 patient trial to be submitted in H2/Q4 • OXB-­302 (CAR-­T 5T4) pre-­clinical study results from the lab tests using the Novartis CAR-T technology and our own protein target from TroVax. • OXB-­301 (TroVax) 4 trials underway, 2 of which (colon and lung) expected to report further news in 2016. (Partners’ products) • Novartis CTL-­019 clinical trial study results from the second Novartis agreement with us. • Novartis CTL-­019 BLA submission (Biologics License Application - BLA - is a request for permission to introduce a biologic product into interstate commerce). In other words, applying for a licence to sell the drug from the first Novartis agreement with us. (Production facility news) • Successful development of 200L bioreactor serum-­free suspension process to produce lentiviral vectors • Further contracts with new partners giving us long-­term economic interest in partners’ product candidates Harry S Truman 24 Jul '16 - 20:39 - 20880 of 21071 For me there, the ProSavin result could be company changing news, but we're not expecting a result, just news that the trial has started - so I don't expect that to really drive anything this year. I also think that JD will not release cohort news, so we will only find out before the trial end if someone like Sheila goes public. Similar really with EncorStat news - it will be progress in the right direction, but quite a way from eventual results. CAR-­T 5T4 (if good lab results) could be exciting as it is CAR-­T for a solid tumour and the market might like that prospect a lot. CAR-­T being in vogue. Novartis news and submission would be good, because if successfully then as soon as they start selling that, we begin to earn our low single digit royalties on the sales - we also get paid for helping to manufacture the product. Good news about the 200 litre reactors doesn't really need explaining - but if we can make more then we can sell more and earn more. Further contracts from unknown is something that JD has hinted at. Might be a wild-card for news that could come at any time and could have quite a positive effect on the share price (new partners = new earnings for the expanded facility). Final wild-card is TroVax in mesothelioma. If that reports a good survival advantage then it would be worth a lot of money to OXB and should quickly go to a phase 3 trial either with us or a partner, as the need for a drug which can do that is an urgent one.

sddavies1: The board doesn't seem that eager to release any news though. Why let the share price languish at 4p when it doesn't belong there?It would strike me as Ill thought out for a CEO with an accounting background to let slip that extra funding is going to be required (knowing full well the impact that statement will immediately have on the share price) to then not have to go ahead and do exactly that when the time comes.I don't know what is going on but I feel very irritated as a shareholder that this drastic loss in value has occurred when the company is supposed to be on the brink of breakeven. This is especially so because the management seem to have been very quiet on the subject for far too long now. The market does not like uncertainty so this makes me suspect that the silence is deliberate because the share price is only going to drop even further when they do get around to saying something.I really, really hope I am wrong!

harry s truman: I didn't fully understand what you were getting at initially Gareth, but your second post reminded me of Christopher Lloyd's character in Taxi - when someone asked him what he'd done when he was at college, he replied that he'd taken a lot of chemistry. Or words to that effect. If you had seen all of that before then fine and no worries, but AK is a genuine egghead and JD isn't. I seem to recall that our current leader studied accountancy at Bangor. This is nothing against accountants (I have one myself), but it seems to me that having one in charge of OXB hasn't exactly led to a golden age for us. I hope to be proved wrong with that. As mentioned in that copied interview we already had a qualified accountant as FD who also held a 1st class honours from Oxford in biochemistry - yet someone with that very unusual (I would have thought) 2 string bow was quickly paid off. I remember Pram talking about that at the time, with thoughts that AW's loyalties would always be with his old Prof, and so regardless of value he had to go. Under JD TroVax is essentially dropped to concentrate on the ocular deal with Sanofi. RetinoStat - the plum drug from that deal and EncorStat get given back to us by Sanofi. RetinoStat was sidelined at the latest review. EncorStat is due a trial but has yet to prove anything. If (and I understand doc, rrr et al all think it's very unlikely) one of the charity funded TroVax trials comes good, how does that get explained to Axa, Aviva, M&G and the others, that "we really didn't think this would be any use, that's why we went with much earlier stage ocular instead, so we could have had this result 6 or 7 years ago but decided to try something else which looked better (and we're now dropping)". Imagine having to explain that one to the institutions which have supported cash call after cash call and seen the share price tank. Fortunately we have the factory (now factories), but that is something I thought that I would never say, as when they bought the surplus site from Cobra, they made it very clear that it was being bought for one reason alone - that being security of supply for the expected demand on their own drugs. Particularly it was key in a deal to partner ProSavin. Had it stayed at that, then I feel there would now be no OXB as such, but fortunately we have the new Novartis chapter of the OXB story (and it seems to be working out quite well). Undoubtedly company saved, but from our perspective - as ordinary shareholders, looking in from the world outside - does any of this really feel like it was part of a long term plan - or just that after a lot of trying they threw a double six and this is what we've ended up with? I'm reminded of Spike Milligan's book about Ireland and the shape of the border - which is not what you would expect. His own conclusion being that rather than any great plan or scheme, it was simply a bunch of differing people all sat around a map table and all hold of the same pen. I'm probably being a little unfair, but it strikes me that these guys are paid very good money with generous options for steering us on what seems awfully like the 'we'll know where we're going when we get there' mystery tour...

philh75: Anyone concerned about the potential shock impact of a leave vote to oxb share price, or uk shares in general?

harry s truman: Pram, IMHO a consolidation is a waste of time (and more importantly money) at this stage, as the costs of doing that are not insignificant and our share price would be of little interest to anyone seeking some kind of deal - their main priority would be to see OXB as a funded going concern. As for being in or out of the money, I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at there, but I've only been totally stuffed twice with shareholdings (I'm not counting investments where the idea or business didn't work out well). One of these was a company which was taken private by the major shareholders who held the preference shares and made a take it or leave it offer for the ordinary shares. They now sponsor F1 cars. The other occasion was a company which I knew little about (more fool me) but was a hot tip in a publication that I subscribed to at the time. I made a modest investment and the directors disappeared with the money. I got pence in the pound back from the first and nothing back from the second. The reason I've parroted all that out is to reassure you that neither were anything like OXB. Our company is main market (my 2 examples weren't) and the big institutional investors in OXB (we're essentially 25% owned by AVIVA and M&G) are interested in making money from a profitable company - they likely have no interest at all in taking one private. Then there is Vulpes, which even if it wanted to doesn't have the cash - and I suspect it doesn't want to either. If Martin wanted to run OXB then he could just pick his time and go for the big job directly. JD is an accountant who was previously a non-exec - not a specialist scientist, he's far from irreplaceable and if a challenger made a case for results against set goals then what is there besides the manufacturing and what were we sold that as? I'm not making that as a prediction, I'm simply suggesting that just as JD moved from a non-exec position into one of the professor's old roles, someone else could easily do that to him. My gut feeling is still that this will be ok for us. Likelihood is that the expanded production facility will essentially fund us until our next TRIST type deal or in house success, at which point a market re-rating would make the share price look a lot better too. Might be a while and what goes on in the interim will more than likely involve our expensive (and profit sharing) lender.

harry s truman: Doc, Interesting point re replacement on the same terms. I think the actual terms are very much secondary in most people's minds - we all accept these days that CEO's will generally pay themselves whatever they can - it's the performance of the share price which is the metric for most people. If the share price performance was good then the money to JD would be no issue for most. I've nothing against JD personally. I've disagreed with some of the decisions that he has made, but at the end of the day I am a shareholder typing on a BB and he is a CEO with a room full of advisers. It's unlikely that I'm the one who knows best and I simply have to hope that he acts on the best available advice. However, shareholder inclusiveness under him is the pits. We were probably spoiled somewhat by the previous regime, but these days what we get appears to be the absolute minimum that he can get away with. Even the Edison reports seem to have dried up now. Until recently we were able to bypass the stonewall of OXB and keep track of recruitment in the TroVax trials via that UKCRN website, but that seems to have closed down and so now we will have no idea on the progress of any of these trials until OXB deem to make an announcement (or not). Had JD made a serious effort to make us feel included then he would have gained an awful lot of goodwill on here. As it is though, there are now plenty of people who look how much money he earns with his salary, his bonuses, his share options and such, before pondering (often out loud) his actual value to us given the share price. He hasn't done himself any favours in that respect. I think it was yourself on here a long time ago who told us that JD's big claim to fame was being tasked with buying a European division for Cephalon, but following that shopping spree he and them seemed to part company. Perhaps I've not got that 100%, but I certainly remember the OXB appointment notice quoting a turnover figure for the division that he grew for Cephalon (which I assume means acquired for them). I'm sure he's a bright chap, but he just doesn't ever come across as a CEO that you'd want to have interviewed by Paxman or facing a house of commons committee. If he was in the right place at the right time during some tumultuous events for OXB then good luck to him, but that doesn't mean that we owe him a living forever. Should OXB ever make that leap from biotech drug development (and now contract manufacturing / technology partnering) into a pharmaceutical company with its own licensed drug (not impossible - others have done it) then I could easily foresee a situation where Martin and the other major shareholders would thank him for all of his hard work during the transition, pay him up whatever his evergreen and his options are worth, then introduce the man or woman to guide the company through its next phase. Anyway, that aside and for what it's worth, I'm still very positive about OXB. I think we're in much better shape than we have been for years. I have this idea (and it might be Pram who intimated this - but apologies if it wasn't) that we were told in the past that OXB weren't chasing Lentivector contracts too hard as the Novartis deal basically tied everything up. This seemed to be confirmed by OXB directly in the placing RNS, when they explained that production income for H1 2015 was hit whilst they produced the clinical trial material for our upcoming ProSavin trial. In other words they couldn't produce Lentivactor for CAR-T engineering for Novartis and Lentivector for ProSavin gene transport simultaneously. They didn't have the capacity and thus only H2 2015 had full production Novartis earnings. They explain in the results this week that "our cGMP clean room capacity has more than doubled to 950m2. We are expanding this capacity further, and with the recent completion of GMP2 will have three independent production suites totalling 1,200m2.". So there are several ways to look at this:- We could now work on our in house drugs and those for Novartis simultaneously (but unless RetinoStat needs new dose levels it's hard to see the immediate need for that). We could simply expand our production for Novartis which in round figures was £10m for H2 2015 on the original capacity - not the 2 stage expansion to 950 or 1200m2. But more likely to me is that we very quickly now bring on-board another Novartis type contract from one of the many companies that have been using our Lentivector on a research licence. There are a lot of them and some will go into the clinic. I think this / these are what OXB are hinting at when they say in the results that "Our work with Novartis has enhanced our credibility in the sector and we are in discussions with a number of third parties working in a variety of cell therapy areas to provide such services and IP licences". Then later they add "Partnering revenues should continue to grow strongly in 2016" and in the outlook they say that "we plan to advance our integrated business through a number of inflection points." To me that says another manufacturing partner is in the wings - and I remember what share price we went from and to following the Novartis deal. This also fits with the idea of a small agreed placing to get us to a certain point (which seemed a very precise sum) prior to a much bigger open offer at a much higher price - possibly to get rid of the Oberland loan facility and clear the decks of the manufacturing expansion costs. Whether it's a large increase in manufacturing earnings from Novartis or another manufacturing partner / new partners - or both - it doesn't really matter to me. Hoping for both doesn't seem to be unrealistic.

stocktastic: 'I now can't see what substantial therapies are likely to come of all this "pure research" into gene therapy/genetics-based approaches' Look at Retinostat and ProSavin - pure gene therapies 'The recent share price rise obviously doesn't have any fundamental reason. It would appear to be related to this new form of hype coming from biotech analysts in the US who have latched onto OXB "across the pond" as a gene therapy company. A company with £4m of manufacturing facilities can't possibly be worth £300m+' Not at all! It is for several reasons - a wider biotech bubble/boom driven by other factors - the approval of first gene therapies and acceptance of the technology - industry moves into more niche/specialist disorders - the valuation of gene therapy listed stocks in the US PLUS - Novartis' deal with OXB for manufacturing CTL-019 and more Pfizer made $14bn in a year from facilities for Lipitor probably costing only a few £million. Same goes for Humira etc. It is the IP and the tech used that contains the value. OXB's manufacturing site may not have cost a lot, but they're using it with their proprietary IP. There are lots of viral vectors used in the industry, but clearly Novartis felt OXB's was a right one to use. Note: it's possible also that OXB offered good terms? The company was struggling at the time. We don't know the margins (although we can work out ranges). Do we know the royalty rates? The value here is because if Novartis' product goes on to sell $2bn per year, or say $20bn over 10 years.... if OXB gets a 2% royalty, then those forecasts have a knock-on effect here. Much of the market cap is the value of those estimated royalty streams. (I do though warn that success with CLT-019 is far from certain and many analysts (with an agenda often!) miss the real threats that exist from competitors. Think of JK Rowling writing Harry Potter books. She just used a computer worth a few hundred quid. I wouldnt suggest anyone buy or sell at this point. I do think the share price could carry on up if good news continues. That said, I also think that a good chunk of the risk-adjusted income from CLT-019 is now in the price. Some throw around numbers like 20p as if the share price is just a line on a graph. In reality, going to that level means another £250m on the market cap. That's a heck of a lot to get from somewhere. Companies like Kite and Juno have $billion market caps because they get a bigger slice of the pie if their products succeed. Key to OXB going higher will be whether Retinostat sufficiently excites or not.
