  • Covid-19

The two German companies BioNTech and CureVac have already provided investors with a considerable boost in share prices. The companies have come into the public eye in recent months because they are working on a vaccine against Covid-19 and have already made great progress. Worldwide, these two companies belong to the elite in research and are a beacon of hope in the fight against the corona pandemic. While BioNTech has been listed on the stock exchange for some time, CureVac made its stock market debut last Friday - with success. Investors who have so far missed their entry in these companies should have Valeo Pharma at least on their watch list.

    Vaccine promises sales boost

    The capital market places great hope in German life science companies. The market value of BioNTech is now over USD 16 billion and the newcomer to the stock exchange, CureVac, has already achieved a market capitalisation of over EUR 11 billion. For those who have not yet joined, Valeo Pharma is probably the next big opportunity for share price gains. The market value of the Canadian pharmaceutical company is currently CAD 73 million, which is still a long way from the billion-dollar valuation of the two German companies that are already involved with Covid-19.

    Market launch in Canada with Valeo Pharma?

    It will certainly only be a matter of time before Valeo Pharma launches a Covid-19 product in Canada. The company is focused on launching drugs in Canada. Biotech companies that have developed a drug in other parts of the world can then launch it in the North American country with Valeo Pharma. The pharmaceutical company does not conduct any research itself and is focused on licensing, approval and distribution of new drugs - which saves time and money. The company's representatives have direct access to doctors and can present new drugs and their effects to decision-makers without wastage.

    Expertise for the Canadian market

    While European pharmaceutical companies focus on the huge US market and US companies supply products to the EU market, Canada, with its 35 million or so inhabitants, is not in the industry's central focus because its large neighbour has more than ten times as many citizens. The big pharmaceutical giants still have their own sales force in Canada, but the smaller drug manufacturers use companies like Valeo to get the drugs to market.

    Covid-19 vaccine in distribution

    The special feature of Valeo Pharma is that around 70% of its shares are held by management, employees and insiders. Around CAD 8 million to finance the company has flowed into the cash box from these circles, which should indicate a high level of motivation. Valeo Pharma currently has eight products in its portfolio and six more in the pipeline. In view of the dynamics surrounding Covid-19, it should come as no surprise that the pharmaceutical company's employees will in future also be carrying vaccines against corona viruses in order to flush sales and profits into the cash register.
