Lyon, France, November 7th, 2016 – Adocia (Euronext Paris: FR0011184241 - ADOC), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on diabetes treatment with innovative formulations of approved proteins, announced today that on November 2nd 2016 it received both the First prize for ‘Profitable Growth’ and the Third Prize ‘Technology Fast 50’ for the Grand Rhône Alpes Region as part of the Deloitte In Extenso Technology Fast 50 16th annual event in Lyon.

The Deloitte In Extenso Technology Fast 50 honours high-growth, technology-focused companies that invest at least 5% of their revenues in R&D in one of the 6 following sectors: Biotech, Energy, Electronics, Media & Telecommunication, Software & IT, Aerospace & Defence. Companies are ranked according to the growth of their revenues during the four previous years. Adocia, a company dedicated to medical innovation, invested 80% of its budget in R&D in 2015 and increased its turnover from €4m to €37m in the past 4 years.

"Technology Fast 50 shines a light on companies like Adocia, who are the quintessential examples of the incredible drive of French entrepreneurs for innovation and value creation. As it reaches its 16th edition, the French Technology Fast 50 ranking has become a reference for French and international investors. We are proud that Adocia is amongst the 2016 laureates," commented Laurent Halfon, Deloitte Partner in charge of the Technology Fast 50.

"After receiving the Biotech Rising Star Award three years ago and the Listed Company Award last year, we are honoured that Deloitte In Extenso continues to recognize our company and strategy with these two Technology Fast 50 Awards,” said Olivier Soula, Deputy General Manager and R&D Director at Adocia. “We especially wish to congratulate our team for their daily commitment to serve the needs of patients living with diabetes and to thank our investors who have put their trust in us since the foundation of the company.”


Adocia is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that specializes in the development of innovative formulations of already-approved therapeutic proteins. Adocia’s insulin formulation portfolio, featuring four clinical-stage products and one preclinical product, is among the largest and most differentiated in the industry.

The proprietary BioChaperone® technological platform is designed to enhance the effectiveness and/or safety of therapeutic proteins while making them easier for patients to use. Adocia customizes BioChaperone to each protein for a given application in order to address specific patient needs.

Adocia’s clinical pipeline includes four novel insulin formulations for the treatment of diabetes: two ultra-rapid formulations of insulin analogs (BioChaperone Lispro U100 and U200), a rapid-acting formulation of human insulin (HinsBet U100) and a combination of basal insulin glargine and rapid-acting insulin lispro (BioChaperone Combo). Adocia is also developing an aqueous formulation of human glucagon (BioChaperone Human Glucagon), two combinations of insulin glargine with GLP-1s (BioChaperone Glargine Dulaglutide and BioChaperone Glargine Liraglutide) and a concentrated, rapid-acting formulation of human insulin (HinsBet U500), all of which are in preclinical development.

In December 2014, Adocia signed a partnership with Eli Lilly for the development and commercialization of the BioChaperone Lispro projects.
