ExpreS2ion appoints CBO and IR partner
ExpreS2ion Biotechnologies ApS (“ExpreS2ion") has appointed Bent U. Frandsen, currently VP of Business Development, as Chief Business Officer (CBO). He will manage a proactive effort to substantially increase the customer base in the Company’s vaccine development and production services segment. Furthermore, ExpreS2ion appoints Honeybadger as non-exclusive IR partner on the Swedish market.
The appointment of Bent U. Frandsen as CBO follows the strengthening of the Company’s offer to provide complete services in vaccine development and GMP production to early clinical trials based on its ExpreS2-platform. The platform is currently used in several projects, including developing treatments for infectious diseases such as malaria and Ebola.
“We have recently added key technical and marketing personnel that has boosted the capacity in our core service segment significantly. Now, we also have a clearer company structure with Bent in overall charge of our sales, marketing and business development efforts,” says ExpreS2ion’s CEO Dr. Steen Klysner.
In addition to Bent U. Frandsen’s appointment, the Company announces the appointment of Honeybadger as the Company’s non-exclusive IR partner on the Swedish market. Honeybadger undertakes to assist ExpreS2ion in strategic communication as well as production of press releases, reports and non-regulatory market communication in Swedish and English. ExpreS2ion’s relationship with Sedermera Fondkommission, the Company’s Financial and Certified Advisor, is not affected by this and will continue to the same extent as before.
“With the capital received from the rights issue in the early spring, we have initiated a significant growth in operations. This has also increased the need for high-quality and transparent communication with our shareholders and the market. To meet this demand while keeping focus on our core activities, we have appointed Honeybadger, whom we have collaborated successfully with since the end of 2017, as our IR partner,” says ExpreS2ion’s CEO Dr. Steen Klysner.
