Codiak BioSciences (CDAK) began trading on the Nasdaq on Wed 14 Oct 20

 Update: Mar 27, 2023 — Codiak has voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
  • Codiak BioSciences priced 5.5 mln share IPO at $15, the mid-point of the $14-$16 expected price range, for gross proceeds of ~$82.5M.
  • Underwriters' over-allotment is an additional 825K shares.
  • Closing date is October 16.
  • Goldman Sachs, Evercore ISI and William Blair are acting as joint book-running managers. Wedbush PacGrow is lead manager.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotech emerged in 2015 with $31 million in VC funding and ex-Biogen R&D chief Doug Williams at the helm. It picked up another $61 million in a series B round just months later and, in 2017, topped that up with a $76.5 million series C.

In April 2019, Codiak was ready to hit the Street, filing to raise up to $86 million in its IPO. It withdrew that attempt two months later and refiled in September this year.
