The judging panel’s full report:

Pharnext: Best Life-Sciences IPO France 2016

Pushing the boundaries of medical research, French biopharmaceutical company Pharnext specialises in the development of drugs that could help treat neurodegenerative diseases. The firm was formed by a group of renowned scientists led by Professor Daniel Cohen, a widely recognised pioneer in modern genomics.

Pharnext’s lead PLEODRUG© , PXT3003, is currently in a pivotal international phase 3 trial in Europe, the U.S. and Canada for the treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Type 1A disease. PXT3003 has the orphan drug designation in Europe and in the U.S. and thus may gain final approval via a much abbreviated procedure. The company has also already obtained positive results for the Phase 2 trial of its second lead PLEODRUG© , PXT864, for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Pharnext is a global leader in a new drug development model called PLEOTHERAPY© which simultaneously target multiple disease pathways with a number of synergic combinations of already existing drugs, effectively repurposing their use. These PLEODRUG© offers key advantages to patients and investors alike: they are deemed effective, safe, and – crucially – enjoy protection under international intellectual property law.

In July 2016, Pharnext successfully debuted on the Paris Euronext Alternext stock exchange raising in excess of €30 million from mostly Tier-1 institutional investors. The proceeds of the IPO will be invested in Pharnext’s already formidable research effort and provide liquidity for future undertakings.

The CFI.co judging panel congratulates the company on its flawlessly executed IPO and wishes to recognise this accomplishment by offering Pharnext the 2016 Best Life-Sciences IPO France Award.
