Bristol Myers Squibb Partnership
In January 2019, Ikena announced an exclusive global strategic collaboration with Celgene Corporation, now Bristol Myers Squibb, for the development of two of Ikena’s pipeline programs; the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) antagonist program and the kynurenine-degrading enzyme (“Kynase”) program. Under the terms of the agreement, Ikena received an upfront payment of $95.0 million, which consisted of $80.5 million in cash and an equity investment of approximately $14.5 million.
