The remaining $12.5 million payment will be made a year later, on May 31, 2023. The agreement further stipulates that G42 investment could acquire another tranche of ordinary shares worth $30 million if the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves the marketing and sale of a pharmaceutical product containing TTP399 in the United States.

Investors cheered vTv’s agreement with G42 Investments to see the two firms collaborate on clinical trials for pharmaceutical products containing TTP399, a liver selective glucokinase activator, as the active ingredient for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

The comprehensive deal allows a G42 subsidiary to fund a portion of phase 3 clinical trials of TTP399. At the same time, vTv will grant G42 an exclusive license to develop and commercialize pharmaceutical products containing TTP399 in certain territories outside of the United States and the European Union.

Investors cheered the deal that will see vTv retail the rights to market pharmaceutical products containing TTP399 within the US and EU, which are some of the largest and most predictable pharmaceutical markets globally.

Rich Nelson, vT’s Interim CEO, said: “G42 Healthcare brings a unique combination of a strong commitment to the development of new impactful drugs and treatments, as demonstrated by their success and their leadership on COVID-19 testing and other product and service offerings in the healthcare spectrum, and substantial resources, making them an ideal partner for this program.”

Investors who missed out on today’s impressive gains in vTv Therapeutics stock should not chase its prices higher but should wait for a significant pullback before buying.
