BioQ Pharma Secures up to $55 Million in Combined Debt and Equity Financing from Madryn Asset Management


Posted on: 15 Aug 17

SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioQ Pharma Incorporated (“BioQ”), a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced that it has secured new financing of up to $55 million from Madryn Asset Management, LP (“Madryn”), an alternative asset management firm focused on investments in innovative healthcare companies. The proceeds of the investment will be used by BioQ to support product commercialization, scale-up manufacturing and operations, and continue new product development.

BioQ is focused on the development and commercialization of ready-to-use infusible pharmaceutical and biological products.  The Company’s infusion platform is intended to address some of the most pressing unmet needs in infusion today: cost, medication error, sterility, efficiency, and patient quality of life. BioQ’s vision is to set a new standard of care in the presentation and administration of large volume infusible pharmaceuticals and biologicals via its proprietary pre-filled, unit-dose infusion systems that can be deployed quickly and conveniently at the point of care with one touch.

“We believe BioQ’s platform technology has the potential to radically transform the delivery of infusion medicine through improved safety, enhanced convenience, and decreased costs—game-changing enhancements that epitomize the types of companies, products, and technologies we invest in,” said Avi Amin, Managing Partner of Madryn. “Our funding will assist the Company in commercializing its innovative infusion systems globally through its expanding network of strategic commercial partnerships. We have strong conviction in BioQ’s future prospects and look forward to supporting the company over the long term.”

“As we embark on our next stage of growth, we are pleased to partner with Madryn, a respected alternative investment firm with a deep understanding of the specialty pharmaceutical landscape and the value proposition of our technology offers to providers, patients, and payors,” said Josh Krisel, Chief Executive Officer of BioQ. “Their extensive experience working with management teams across the healthcare sector provides us with even greater resources and expertise to strategically grow our business, while their collaborative approach to structuring this investment provides us with the flexibility we need to scale our global operations rapidly and efficiently. We welcome Madryn as a new institutional member of our strong and growing investor base.”

BioQ employs a de-risked commercial strategy in which it is the innovator and manager at the hub of a network of supply, manufacturing, and commercial partners. The Company intends to draw proceeds from the investment to expand existing commercial operations, support anticipated near-term regulatory approvals, and advance earlier-stage development activities.
