Vyant Bio Postpones Second Quarter Investor Conference Call and Webcast

New Jersey, UNITED STATES


CHERRY HILL, N.J., Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vyant Bio, Inc. (“Vyant Bio” or “Company”) (Nasdaq: VYNT) is an innovative biotechnology company reinventing drug discovery for complex neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. The Company’s proprietary central nervous system (“CNS”) drug discovery platform combines human-derived organoid models of brain disease, scaled biology, and machine learning. Today, Vyant Bio announced that it is postponing its investor conference call for the second quarter and first half of 2022, originally scheduled for Monday, August 15, 2022 at 4:30 pm ET.

Very recent developments related to the accounting for the potential sale of its vivoPharm subsidiary have caused the Company to need to make further revisions to its valuation estimate due to domestic and international tax considerations that may impact net sales proceeds and the resulting non-cash intangible asset impairment charge within discontinuing operations and related matters resulting from those changes.

The Company will issue a press release announcing the new date and time for the postponed earnings call upon the completion of the vivoPharm valuation and tax analyses.

ABOUT VYANT BIO, INC.

Vyant Bio, Inc. (“Vyant Bio” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: VYNT), is an innovative biotechnology company focused on identifying unique biological targets and novel and repurposed therapeutics. Vyant Bio has built a platform of therapeutics seeking to treat neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases, with current programs targeting Rett Syndrome (“Rett”), CDKL5 Deficiency Disorders (“CDD”), and Parkinson’s Disease. The Company’s approach to drug discovery integrates human-derived biology with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to de-risk candidate selection, with the goal of improving the potential effectiveness of drugs discovered earlier in the development cycle. Vyant Bio’s management believes that drug discovery needs to progressively shift to more efficient methods as the widely used models for predicting safe and effective drugs have under-performed, as evidenced by the significant time and cost of bringing novel drugs to patients. By combining sophisticated data science capabilities with highly functional human cell derived disease models, Vyant Bio seeks to leverage its current ability to screen and test therapeutic candidates, and create a unique approach to assimilating data that supports decision making iteratively throughout the discovery phase of drug development to identify both novel and repurposed CNS therapeutic candidates.
