We pride ourselves on creating a culture and work environment that is scientifically driven, ambitious, and collaborative. We encourage the diversity of thought that leads to great innovation and are looking to add to our dynamic team people who are driven to transform the lives of patients. The HBV pipeline consists of a lead program in multiple global Phase 2a studies; a 2nd Generation program entering Phase I late this year, and a 3rd program approaching clinical candidate selection. We expect this pipeline to represent a backbone therapy for increasing cures in HBV and can be envisioned as a foundation of the company's research in virology globally. We believe our Microbiome platform represents the best in class approach to developing biopharmaceutical agents from live biotherapeutic products. Our lead programs in GI are nearing the first IND/Phase Ib later this year for Ulcerative Colitis; this program is part of a partnership we established with Allergan in 2017 with a total value of up to over $2.8 billion. Our internal pipeline of other disease areas in consideration for advancement that are wholly owned by Assembly and will represent first in class or best in class microbiome programs are in areas such as Immuno Oncology, Liver Disease, and many other areas of high medical need. The Company has a business office in Carmel, Indiana; a main research facility in San Francisco; a microbiome manufacturing facility in Groton, CT; and a research office in Shanghai, China. The San Francisco facility is moving to Oyster Point in South San Francisco by the end of 2018. As Assembly nears 100 employees, of which ~60 are based in San Francisco, it is anticipated that future growth will be focused at our new South San Francisco location. The Company has a strong balance sheet having recently raised $166 million, bringing its cash reserves to approximately $250 million – and thus positioned well to build the next phase of Assembly toward global development and commercialization of our innovative medicines in HBV-cure and the Microbiome.
