Investment summary

Oxford Biomedica (OXB) is a global leader in lentiviral development and manufacturing. With the formation of Oxford Biomedica Solutions in the US, OXB will offer a vector-agnostic platform to customers to continue growing its platform revenues. In the near term, revenues will continue to be driven by Novartis and AstraZeneca (AZN) as the rollout of Kymriah and the COVID-19 vaccine continues, as well as new partner programmes such as those from Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS). OXB has several established development and manufacturing partnerships including Novartis, Juno Therapeutics (BMS), Orchard Therapeutics, Boehringer Ingelheim and Beam Therapeutics. OXB also has a supply agreement with AZN for the large-scale commercial manufacture of the adenovirus vector-based COVID-19 vaccine Vaxzevria (AZD1222). Our forecasts are under review.
