Hilco Streambank, a leading intellectual property advisory firm specializing in the valuation and monetization of intangible assets, announced that it is seeking offers to acquire the intangible and related assets of biopharmaceutical company Oncorus, which has developed and patented pre-clinical self-amplifying RNA technology for cancer.

Bids to acquire the assets are due by July 7, 2023.

Oncorus’ asset portfolio covers three technology platforms: The LNP platform employs lipid nanoparticle technology as a delivery system for various potential genetic cargos; the RNA platform, including lead product candidate ONCR-021, involves encapsulating genomes of RNA viruses within a lipid nanoparticle, creating a selectively self-amplifying RNA immunotherapy that is intended to be administered intravenously; and the HSV platform utilizes a microRNA attenuated herpes simplex virus as a delivery system for immunomodulatory payloads designed to target and kill cancer cells.

Hilco Streambank Senior Vice President and head of patent advisory, Karl Maersch, noted, “the company’s technology, including cutting-edge delivery platforms and novel RNA modalities, provides a unique value proposition to a strategic buyer, including not just a significant relief from royalties of licensing adjacent RNA delivery system technologies, but also a starting place from which to accelerate costly R&D efforts.” Maersch continued, “Oncorus’ state-of-the-art platforms enable multiple potential RNA cargos, providing potentially wide-ranging advantages and opportunities for scientific research, discovery, and commercialization.”

Interested parties have the option to acquire any or all of Oncorus’ three technology platforms, each of which are protected by internationally registered patents and pending applications.
