Statement re: media comment  


Beximco Pharmaceuticals Limited ("Beximco Pharma" or "the Company"; AIM Symbol: BXP, LEI No.: 213800IMBBD6TIOQGB56), the fast-growing manufacturer of generic pharmaceutical products and active pharmaceutical ingredients, notes recent media reports in Bangladesh relating to Covid-19 vaccine supplies.


Reports suggest that the Serum Institute of India Private Limited (SII) will resume exports of Covid-19 vaccine doses into Bangladesh in December 2021. However, in line with the Company's announcement on 11 October 2021, Beximco Pharma is yet to receive any confirmation from SII in this regard. The Company remains in dialogue with the Government of Bangladesh and SII and a further announcement will be made as appropriate.


Reports also suggest that Beximco Pharma is building its own capacity to produce Covid-19 vaccines and that this capability could be operational within four-to-six weeks. While the Company can confirm that, as part of its ongoing mission to provide patients with affordable treatment options, it is in the process of establishing an in-house vaccine capability, this is still at an early stage. No decision has been made on whether this vaccine capability will focus on Covid-19 or other target disease areas. As above, any material developments will be announced as appropriate.
