Investment summary

Abzena offers a full-service biologics research and manufacturing capability, enabling safer and more effective biological products, including immunogenicity assessment, protein/antibody engineering, bioconjugation chemistry and biomanufacturing. The 2017 fundraising of £25m (gross) is enabling it to expand its service offering and capacity. The company now aspires to profitability without further equity raises. Fee-for-services provides stable revenues, while successful commercialization of products created using Abzena’s technologies offers the prospect of future royalty revenue; 12 such products are now in the clinic. Abzena has recently announced another licensing deal for its ADC linker technology (ThioBridge™) making for up to ten ADC products, up to three with Halozyme.
