Bioceros B.V. announces change of ownership

Utrecht, The Netherlands, February 17th, 2011 - Bioceros B.V. announces that it has successfully realized a change of ownership. This is the result of the purchase of the outstanding shares owned by Forbion, Thuja Capital and Biogeneration Ventures by existing shareholders and the management team.

Bioceros’ CEO, Dr. Bram Bout comments: “The financial round of 2008, which was led by Thuja Capital and Biogeneration Ventures, has allowed us to build a strong, independent service business and to lay the foundation for a product pipeline. We are therefore pleased and proud that we can offer our investors this exit. Bioceros will further grow its service business by expanding its technology platform and spin out its early-stage products in a separate legal entity.”

Dr. Mark de Boer (chairman) and Dr. Oscar Schoots, MBA, will remain members of the Supervisory Board of Bioceros.
