Stephen O’Hara, acting CEO of ProBiotix, commented: “The separate public listing of the Company enables us both to raise awareness of the scale of the opportunity in probiotics and to accelerate the realisation of our strategic objectives through improved access to capital and by helping us to attract, retain and motivate key personnel. The recruitment as CEO of such a leading industry figure as Steen Andersen would not have been possible had Probiotix remained part of a larger group.
“Reported first half sales understate the success of the Company in winning new customers, expanding into new territories and developing its product portfolio with confirmed orders as of the end of August 2022 of more than £1.12m, already higher than sales in the full year 2021 (£1.1m).
“We will continue to grow the business through a clear strategic focus on commercialising products across more territories with larger partners supported by a developing product pipeline – both by exploring new probiotic strains and by extending the applications and use of LPLDL®. We will expand our range of finished products with the addition of a phytosterol product to the CholBiome® portfolio, and continue to develop the substantial opportunities in dairy with major partners.
“Given the scale of the market opportunity, the proven efficacy of our existing products, the substantial scope for expansion of our range and geography, the significant benefits of public listing and the financial strength of the Company, we look to the future with confidence and enthusiasm.”
