UCC VICAN I Limited Partnership (the “Company”), began operations on November 20, 2019 as a special purpose entity formed with the sole purpose of making an investment into United Cancer Centers, Inc. (“UCC”) by way of purchasing preferred shares of stock issued by UCC. A certain percentage of invested capital will also be used for investment in zero coupon investment grade bonds. The Company’s legal structure was formed as a limited partnership under the laws of the State of Wyoming on October 26, 2019. The General Partner of the Company is Vivaris Capital, LLC (the “General Partner” or the “GP”) and the individual manager is J. Christopher Mizer.
UCC is currently executing an offering of Class A Preferred Stock in United Cancer Centers, Inc. representing a five percent (5%) stake of the cash revenues (less returns and allowances) generated by the United Cancer Center’s Right-to-Try clinic network. United Cancer Centers, Inc. is launching U.S.-based outpatient clinics that seek to redefine the concept of informed decision making for cancer patients by providing access to a wider array of both FDA-approved and investigational treatment options. UCC VICAN I Limited Partnership will also invest in a portfolio of investment grade, zero coupon bonds to assist in securing the return of the principal invested amount at the end of ten years.
UCC comprises a collection of U.S.-based outpatient clinics that seek to redefine the concept of informed decision making for cancer patients by providing access to a wider array of both FDA-approved and investigational treatment options. The mission of United Cancer Centers is to provide comprehensive cancer treatment that address the glaring issues faced by cancer patients, such as the need for information regarding treatment options, access to investigational therapies once all standard of care options are exhausted, and the affordability of care.
UCC expects to be the first comprehensive cancer treatment facility that assists patients in navigating the federal Right-to-Try legislation, which provides terminally ill patients the ability to be treated with promising and safe drugs still in clinical development. United Cancer Centers will work to identify and source promising breakthrough technologies that can be accessed under the Right-to-Try legislation.
United Cancer Centers plans to take a process that typically takes 10 to 15 years with the U.S. FDA and to time collapse this into as little as 18 months. By shortening the gap between scientific discovery and implementation, UCC intends to provide patients with a feasible and understandable pathway to the most cutting edge therapeutic interventions.
UCC’s hope is that this process can better facilitate the pathway to a cure for cancer.
The Company is currently managed by seasoned business and sector professionals dedicated to the success of the Company and efficient execution of its planned operations.
