Investors and Partners
Vascular Pharmaceuticals is focused on rapidly bringing VPI-2960B through clinical development so people living with diabetic nephropathy can benefit from this potential treatment breakthrough. Our investors drive the company's financial stability and fund ongoing R&D efforts. Intersouth and MGM co-led a $16 million round in a Series A equity financing in 2012. In early 2015, Vascular Pharmaceuticals expanded its Series A financing by $9M, bringing the total raised to $25 million. Lumira Capital and an additional, unnamed investor joined Intersouth and MPM in this round.
In conjunction with the initial Series A round we also entered into an agreement with Janssen Biotech in 2012 granting acquisition rights on pre-negotiated terms after completion of the current Phase 2 trial. Through this deal, Vascular Pharmaceuticals received an initial upfront payment and will secure certain contingent milestone payments in return for rights.
