Investment summary

Abzena offers fully integrated research and manufacturing services/technologies that enable safer and more effective biological products. This includes immunogenicity assessment, protein/antibody engineering, bioconjugation, biomanufacturing and chemistry/conjugation. It has a fully integrated offering which has a global operating presence and cross selling opportunities across the group. Recent fundraising of £25m (gross) will enable it to expand its service offering and capacity. Fee-for-services provides stable revenues today (H117 £9.0m), while successful commercialisation of products created using Abzena’s technologies offers the prospect of substantial future revenues (small % royalties); 12 such products are now in the clinic, eg Gilead’s GS-5745 (Phase III for gastric cancer) and Roche's RG6125 (formerly SDP051). Abzena has recently announced another licensing deal for its ADC linker technology (ThioBridge™), which adds to the previous deals for up to ten ADC products in one case and with Halozyme for up to three ADC targets.
