CEO statement

During the first quarter of 2017, we have consolidated and prepared Panion for the exiting times ahead. The Board and the Management have settled in and are actively pushing forward our business plan. The procedures and development plans have matured and the company has been made ready to be listed on a market place. A small directed emission of shares facilitated this process.

At the time of writing this report, the emission of new shares to existing and new shareholders has just been finalized with a very satisfying result.

9% of Panions existing shareholders decided to increase their share holdings and in addition Panion managed to attract significant interest from new investors. After the share issue there are 1247 shareholders in Panion and with the new funds of MSEK 7,4 from the share issue, Panion is now well capitalized for the coming 12-18 months. The emission was successfully handled with the qualified assistance of our financial advisors from Regin Corporate Finance in Stockholm.

We have in Q1 continued the work on the epilepsy product for dogs in cooperation with CombiGene AB. Epilepsy in dogs is serious disease that affects millions of family dogs across the world and for which medicine is not effective in approximately 30% of cases. We want to develop an effective gene therapy treatment that can alleviate or eliminate the scary and unpleasant seizure attacks and improve the quality of life for these dogs and their owners. The license agreement that we have with CombiGene is now fully operational with a service and supply agreement connected to it. The Board has evaluated the market potentials and opening the process in USA will be the first move towards the realization of the potential of this very interesting product. A US office is established and our US agent in place for the FDA-procedures to progress smoothly. Moreover, we have two US-based specialized consultants connected to Panion and they are ready to help us move forward with the clinical development and approval of the epilepsy product for dogs.

In the meantime, we have continued the search for more in-licensing opportunities. The business model where we develop and commercialize the animal assets of new medicinal projects from the human field, remains the promising core of our strategy. Recently, the first step into a cooperation with the Germany-based company GeneQuine Biotherapeutics GmbH was taken by the mutual signing of a Letter of Intent. GeneQuine, which was established in 2012, develops gene therapy for osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, in humans, horses, and dogs. They hold worldwide exclusive IP rights to specific gene therapy vectors and their use in the treatment of osteoarthritis. The Letter of Intent will facilitate discussions pertaining to a license agreement with regards to these novel veterinary medicines.

It is fantastic to see the company transform from a science based entity to a focused product development company with a clear direction, and I look forward to the coming steps and challenges.
