Corimmun GmbH. (10/10). "Press Release: Corimmun GmbH Closes a EUR 7.45 Million Financing Round with MIG AG as Lead Investor". Martinsried.

The biotech company Corimmun GmbH has successfully closed the second, consecutive financing round with MIG AG, Bayern Kapital, Bio-M, Hightech-Gründerfonds and KfW bank, amounting to EUR 7.45 million. The company is specialized in inflammatory mechanisms in cardiovascular diseases. This investment will enable Corimmun to achieve the proofs of principle in man (phase II) with the lead product COR-1 and with the platelet inhibitor Revacept. The product pipeline will be further expanded and developed. COR-1 is a peptide-based drug, which inhibits the auto-antibody-mediated myocardial damage in heart failure. COR-1 is the first drug to target this important mechanism and therefore addresses an unmet medical need in a major indication. Revacept is a lesion-specific inhibitor of arterial thrombosis for the treatment of patients with acute coronary syndromes and stroke. Revacept has the unique feature to potently inhibit the initial steps of platelet activation without affecting general hemostasis.

The lead investor in this financing round is MIG AG, Munich, Germany. Co-investors in the investor consortium are Bayern Kapital, Bio-M, Hightech-Gründerfonds and KfW Bank. Corimmun was supported by Matthias Guth Corporate Finance Consulting in the preparation and closing of this financing round.

“With the positive and productive experience with our present investor MIG AG we decided to conduct this further financing round with our existing shareholders. The present investment will enable the proof of principle of two very exciting clinical development projects with enormous medical need. We are very confident to bring the company to a big success in a concerted manner with our shareholders”, comments Corimmun´s CEO Dr. Götz Münch.

„We are delighted to support the successful team of Corimmun in the further clinical development of their projects with a second financing round. Two clinical Phase II studies in attractive indications have the potential to considerably increase the value of Corimmun”, says Michael Motschmann, member of the executive board of MIG.
