Company Description

MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of therapeutic products for patients with diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Our lead investigational product candidate, AFREZZA® (pronounced uh-FREZZ-uh) is a novel, ultra rapid-acting mealtime insulin therapy. AFREZZA is in late stage clinical investigation for the treatment of adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes for the control of hyperglycemia. It is a drug-device combination product, consisting of AFREZZA inhalation powder pre-metered into single use dose cartridges and the light, discreet and easy-to-use AFREZZA inhaler. Because of its unique pharmacokinetic profile, AFREZZA may be a promising new therapy for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, as it controls post meal-time glucose levels with less weight gain and lower risk of hypoglycemia. AFREZZA utilizes our proprietary Technosphere® formulation technology, which is based on a class of organic molecules that are designed to self-assemble into small particles onto which drug molecules can be loaded. We believe Technosphere represents a versatile drug delivery platform that may allow pulmonary administration of certain drugs that currently require administration by injection, such as GLP-1. Beyond convenience, we believe the key advantage of drugs inhaled as Technosphere formulations is that they have been shown to be absorbed very rapidly into the arterial circulation, essentially mimicking intra-arterial administration. MannKind is also developing other inhalation technologies, including an innovative line of patient-focused, breath-activated, dry powder inhalers and inhalation profiling to characterize patient inhalation

Each SPV generally holds a specific underlying investment, which may be held directly by the funds or used to facilitate a specific co-investment opportunity.Raging Capital seeks to achieve superior long-term, absolute, risk-adjusted returns regardless of overall market performance without taking outsized risks, and to maximize after tax returns. To achieve this, the firm employs a hedged/long-short, generalist investment strategy that invests primarily in equity and debt securities of small to mid-cap US companies, with primary focus on companies that are not well covered by Wall Street analysts.
