Sosei Co., Ltd. Announces Outcome of Strategy Review
Published: May 14, 2008
TOKYO, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sosei Group Corporation , a biopharmaceutical company, today announces the outcome of its strategy review.
In view of the current market conditions, the difficulty in raising finance at the current low share price, and the problems associated with the AD923 device which has necessitated a halt to the Phase III trials Sosei has taken decisive action to cut costs, streamline its operation and to secure the future of the business until it becomes a significant income generating business from NVA237/QVA149 in a few years time.
This restructuring and portfolio review will provide Sosei with at least two years cash based on the post-restructuring cash burn including a budget allocation to explore some late stage product opportunities for future expansion but without the inclusion of any income from licensing or sales deals for its compounds.
