A Hamilton warehouse under construction has been sold to Southern California-based Cohen Asset Management Inc. for $29.6 million.
The 145,950-square-foot industrial building developed by Indianapolis-based Scannell Properties is scheduled to be completed in February. Known as the Kuser Industrial Center, it is located at 2555 Kuser Road.
CBRE has been named exclusive leasing agent for the property.
“The Kuser Industrial Center offered a unique opportunity to acquire a new Class A industrial property that benefits from superior highway access and an abundant available labor pool in a location equidistant from Port Newark, Port Elizabeth and the Port of Philadelphia,” CBRE’s Brian Fiumara said in a statement.
Pennington-based OncoSec, a biotechnology company that develops immunotherapy cancer treatments, announced an agreement with Sirtex Medical to co-promote TAVO, its most promising treatment candidate.
Under the agreement, global healthcare business Sirtex will pay $5 million for a non-exclusive option to co-promote TAVO in U.S. patients with certain types of metastatic melanoma. If exercised, this option would require Sirtex to pay an additional $20 million in cash and purchase $5 million in common stock of the company at a market price.
TAVO, short for tavokinogene telseplasmid, works by making tumors responsive to drugs that inhibit tumors’ built-in “off switches” that keep the body’s immune system from attacking them.
In a statement, Daniel O’Connor, president and CEO of OncoSec, stated, “Sirtex is a strong company with significant experience in the sales and marketing of drug/device combination products to treat cancer. This deal provides OnocSec with the potential to commercialize TAVO with a highly skilled U.S. sales force in this initial indication, while retaining the right to grant others the ability to do so and the flexibility to buy back the rights if warranted.”
