Oasmia (Nasdaq: OASM) and Karo Pharma have entered into an agreement concerning Karo Pharma's cancer project KB9520, which has shown promising results in pre-clinical models for a number of different types of cancer.
Oasmia acquires the project and strengthens its oncology project portfolio. Karo Pharma receives 3,080,000 newly issued shares as a down payment corresponding to a value of MSEK 25. Additionally, Oasmia will pay Karo Pharma 20% of all future revenues generated by the project for Oasmia.
Oasmia will continue the development process and will be responsible for all project expenses.
"This is a solid industrial solution where the companies can focus within their respective areas. Oasmia, which has several cancer projects in both early and late developmental phase, strengthens its already unique product portfolio. The collaboration is based on a separation of focus that will work well and I am personally committed to making this a successful collaboration for both companies" says Anders Lonner, Executive Chairman in Karo Pharma.
"This is a very exciting acquisition for Oasmia as the project will complement the company's current product portfolio with novel innovative candidates within our focus area. A prerequisite in this transaction from our side has been to get access to Anders Lonners unique track record in developing companies and his international business experience. Since we are looking forward to several registrations of new pharmaceutical products, his expertise will be very valuable. Anders Lonner is proposed to be part of Oasmia's Board of Directors and will also be proposed as chairman at an extraordinary shareholders meeting." says Julian Aleksov, largest shareholder in Oasmia Pharmaceutical.
Stockholm Corporate Finance has been advising Oasmia in this transaction.
