CEO Hans Arwidsson
Our third quarter is now completed and in addition to our continued work towards initiating clinical phase with our chlamydia vaccine candidate, we have also focused on the further development of our portfolio of vaccine candidates. The beginning of 2022 has meant intensive work, evaluating and negotiating additional vaccine candidates that I look forward to sharing with the market. The expansion of our portfolio of innovative vaccine candidates is a strong value driver for the company, given Eurocine Vaccines’ extensive knowledge and experience in vaccine development, but perhaps particularly important to meet our society’s need for modern and effective vaccines.
Internationally as well as in Sweden, vaccines and vaccine developers are increasingly highlighted as important societal functions to ensure global public health – new vaccines are needed to keep up with new and constantly mutating pathogens and thereby contribute to the health of future generations. We are proud to be part of that context and it motivates us every day in our development work.
During the quarter, we successfully completed the warrant exercise, and I would like to thank all who chose to exercise their TO 4. Extensive work is currently underway to ensure the quality of the various stages of the manufacturing process in preparation for the clinical trial. The capital will finance, among other things, this work. In total, approximately 84.5 percent of the TO 4 were subscribed and, in combination with the support of our main shareholder, Flerie Invest, we were able to achieve 100 percent of the issue volume. This will fund objectives in the near future such as the scale-up and manufacturing of the study product and the start of the toxicology study ahead of the planned start of the clinical trial in the first half of 2023.
Building a vaccine portfolio is time-consuming and requires a broad combination of skills and experience in vaccine development, vaccine markets, law, and business development, competencies that the senior team in Eurocine Vaccines have. These are the right competencies to build a strong portfolio where we develop and refine multiple innovations into attractive candidates.
In addition to identifying, evaluating, and negotiating additional vaccine candidates, where our recent focus has been on evaluation and negotiation, we are also working long-term to prepare the vaccine companies that are our potential future partners for the chlamydia vaccine candidate. Even though the vaccine market is relatively concentrated to a limited number of large global players, I am very pleased with the interest that I meet, both in partnering conferences and in direct contacts in our large network.
As we approach the end of the financial year, I look back on a developing year in which we have completed a number of important activities that have resulted in a solid foundation for further planning of our upcoming clinical trial with the chlamydia vaccine candidate.
Finally, I would like to thank all shareholders in Eurocine Vaccines for your trust. Together with the team, I look forward to continuous success, both in the development of the chlamydia vaccine candidate and in the expansion of the vaccine portfolio.
