The English language version of the Prospectus was approved by the Belgian Financial Services and Markets Authority (the "FSMA") on 16 June 2020, which approval should not be understood as an endorsement by the FSMA of the Company or the quality of the Offered Shares.
Hyloris Pharmaceuticals SA (“Hyloris Pharmaceuticals” or “Hyloris” or the (“Company”), an early-stage innovative specialty pharmaceutical company focused on adding value to the healthcare system by reformulating well-known pharmaceuticals, intends to raise new funds through an Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) with admission of all of its shares on the regulated market of Euronext Brussels.
Hyloris, an early-stage innovative specialty pharmaceutical company
Hyloris is focused on adding value to the healthcare system by reformulating well-known pharmaceuticals. The Company develops proprietary products it believes offer significant advantages compared to currently available alternatives, with the aim of addressing the underserved medical needs of patients, hospitals, physicians, payors and other stakeholders in the healthcare system.
Hyloris’ development strategy focuses on the Food & Drug Administration’s (“FDA”) 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway, which is specifically designed for pharmaceuticals for which safety and efficacy of the molecule has been established. As compared to traditional New Drug Applications (NDAs) using the FDA’s 505(b)(1) regulatory pathway, the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway can reduce the clinical burden required to bring a product to the market, significantly shorten the development timelines and reduce costs and risks.
To date, Hyloris’ operations have consisted primarily of the identification of product candidates to build its pipeline and the formulation, testing and development of its existing portfolio. Today, Hyloris has established a diversified portfolio of 2 early-stage commercial products and 12 product candidates, the majority of which are in the early reformulation development stage. Hyloris’ portfolio has a particular focus on intravenous (“IV”) cardiovascular products, but it also contains other reformulation products and established markets products (high-barrier generics). The Company is continuously evaluating new development candidates to add to its portfolio, both internally and externally.
