Opthea – Novel Funding to Access US$260 Million

Opthea (OPT: $1.25) has gained access of up to US$260 million ($371 million) to reach top-line results of two Phase III trials with its drug candidate OPT-302. The top-line results are now due in mid 2024. The funds will also be used for pre-commercialisation activities.

It's the largest capital raise for the sector (excluding raises conducted by CSL, Cochlear and ResMed), for non-asset purchases.
