Anthony Hayes, CEO of AIkido Pharma, stated, "Recent advancements from our research partners and the anticipated publication of testing data for our technology that is expected in the second quarter of this year, reinforce our optimism around the opportunities for our therapeutic drug platform and the future of the Company. Through a series of recent financing transactions, we believe we are sufficiently capitalized to fund research activities that are currently underway and selectively pursue additional emerging opportunities. Given the current market conditions, we determined it is in the best interest of our shareholders to withdraw the registration statement, while staying the course with our approach to developing commercially viable, effective therapies."
