Tax money accelerates development
The development of medical agents is costly and time-consuming. Politicians and companies are working closely together on research into a vaccine against Covid-19. Social peace is already at stake in many countries, and for this reason, specialized companies must be given financial leeway to get to the goal as quickly as possible: the vaccine. The two German companies BioNTech and CureVac have each received pledges of taxpayers' money in the high three-digit million range with the achievement of milestones.
Strengthening the industry
BioNTech and CureVac offer investors who want to participate in the race for a vaccine with the solid legal and regulatory framework of the European Union and other developed markets. However, it should be noted that the market capitalization is already in the multi-billion range so high expectations have already been priced in. The fight against Covid-19 has brought these companies to the forefront of global competition, which is expected to strengthen the industry for the time after the pandemic, and the experience gained will also be used in other areas of the companies for the development of other products.
Access to patients generates revenue
Anyone afraid of the research and development risk should take a look at Valeo Pharma, as the company focuses on bringing to market products already tried and tested by other biotech companies. The main market for its medical products is Canada. According to its statements, Valeo Pharma can accompany the entire process of handling products. Especially for small researching market participants, specialized companies like Valeo Pharma offer an excellent sales channel. The sales staff are in direct contact with doctors and medical institutions. This is how specific prescription products find their way to the patient.
Marketing authorization enables sales offensive
In the context of the current corona pandemic, Valeo Pharma is working with its partner Ingenew. Ingenew's Hesperco capsules are designed to support the immune system and Valeo Pharma has accompanied the marketing authorization process and is now taking care of the distribution. Pierre Laurin, CEO of Ingenew, explained the importance of the active ingredient in a press release: "(...) Thousands of compounds have been evaluated since the start of the pandemic and the active compound in Hesperco capsules has been repeatedly reported to be one of the best candidate to interfere with the mechanisms SARS-CoV-2 uses to infect our cells. (…)“
Portfolio offers growth potential
Besides Hesperco, Valeo Pharma has eight other products in its portfolio and six more in the pipeline. The latest financing round provides the company with sufficient capital for a sales offensive. The company was able to raise CAD 6.9 million from investors at a share price of CAD 1.20, thus laying the foundation for the future. "(...) The proceeds of this financing will be used to support the launch of several new products in the coming months and to accelerate new growth opportunities," said Steve Saviuk, CEO of Valeo Pharma. With a market capitalization of CAD 75 million, Valeo Pharma costs only a fraction of the market capitalization of BioNTech and CureVac.
