BioTime, Inc. (NYSE MKT and TASE:BTX) announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.
According to the press release:

“During the third quarter, BioTime and its family of companies achieved significant progress on multiple fronts,” said Adi Mohanty, BioTime’s co-Chief Executive Officer. “We are delivering on our commitment to reduce the complexity of our operations while progressively unlocking the value of our subsidiaries for BioTime shareholders. An important step forward in this effort was the announcement that OncoCyte Corporation, our cancer diagnostics subsidiary, had filed a Form 10 Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for our planned distribution of OncoCyte common stock to our shareholders. On the financial front, we strengthened our capital position through the sale of $34.0 million of BioTime common shares to institutional investors in September and early October. At the same time, we continued to advance the clinical development of our products that are aimed at addressing large unmet patient needs. We also announced several collaborations with leading medical and academic institutions, as well as a major corporate partnership to develop bone grafting products. All the while, we’ve continued to evolve the management of the company toward an organization that is structured to support later-stage clinical trials and commercial products.”
“BioTime continues to strengthen its leadership position in regenerative medicine on many fronts,” said Dr. Michael D. West, BioTime’s co-Chief Executive Officer. “During the third quarter, BioTime’s ESI-BIO division launched its new technology platform that provides a more complete and accurate model to study the effects of drugs and therapeutic compounds on vascular network formation. The recently announced formation of Ascendance Biotechnology, Inc. by combining ESI-BIO with Hepregen Corporation has the potential to offer an enhanced, broad portfolio of products and services to the rapidly growing and largest segment of the research product market. Our proprietary PureStem®technology for the production of industrial-scale pure stem cells is the basis for the collaboration between our subsidiary OrthoCyte Corporation and Heraeus Medical GmbH for the development of bone grafting therapies. This collaboration represents validation for our human embryonic progenitor cell technology as we continue to develop other products based on PureStem®.”
