Biovian – Debt refinancing initiative to support GeneCity expansion

We advised Biovian Oy, a Finnish company, in a debt refinancing initiative and securing a new funding package with Eurazeo, a French investment company, to support GeneCity facility expansion. The package will be used to refinance existing debt and to finance investment in GeneCity.

The GeneCity facility will house cutting-edge equipment and advanced technologies to support the development, manufacturing, and testing of ATMP (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products). It will also feature dedicated Class A to D cleanroom areas for bulk drug substances as well as final drug product manufacture. The new viral vector facility building has been started in the autumn of 2023 and the facility is expected to be ready in 2025.

The new funding package is an important milestone in Biovian’s growth journey and will support Biovian in continuing its strong organic growth. The GeneCity expansion is a strategic move aimed at meeting the growing demand for high-quality biopharmaceutical manufacturing services and further solidifying Biovian’s position as a trusted partner in the biopharmaceutical industry.
