Use of Proceeds

·    Accelerate the lead optimisation of BVX001 to reach key preclinical milestones on efficacy and safety;

·    Expand BiVictriX's early-stage pipeline to include two additional candidates with preclinical proof of concept;

Admission

 

The Directors believe that Admission will be an important step in the Group's development and will assist the Group in its development by raising its public profile, widening its shareholder base, providing potential future access to development capital to progress its current and future pipeline of proprietary products and enabling it to expand within its chosen therapy areas and expand its commercial partnerships. It will also provide the Group with the ability to incentivise its employees through share incentive plans, which should assist it in continuing to attract, retain and motivate high calibre employees.
