Person Person Wegener, Bernd (Deutsche Biotech Innovativ AG before BRAHMS CEO)

The Deutsche Biotech Innovativ AG ("DBI") was able to generate gross proceeds of over 1.6 million Euros from its current capital increase. In total 48,938 new shares were placed at an issue price of 33.50 Euros. The new shares are expected to be delivered beginning of December 2015.

The proceeds from the capital increase will be invested in particular in the upcoming clinical development of the sepsis drug Adrecizumab which is developed by the project company Adrenomed AG.

"The financing market for biotech companies is difficult in Germany, in particular for young companies. With our first public offering we have therefore not achieved the desired goal, but nevertheless, we will push the further development of our pipeline - also with additional own resources", says Dr. Bernd Wegener, CEO of DBI AG.

The application for the first-in-man clinical study with Adrecizumab is about to be submitted. In this study, the drug will be tested for its safety, tolerability and its effects on the human organism. The study is to be completed in 2016, so that the phase II study can follow directly afterwards in 20 to 30 clinical centers across Europe. The final results of the phase II study are expected by the end of 2018.
