Listing of the shares of the Company at the Stock Exchange in Warsaw (GPW)
In the last 5 financial years the Company did not pay out dividends. The Management Board of the Company adopts the current dividend policy to the Company’s economic situation, taking into account the scope of necessary investments. At present the Company is in the development stage and it seems expedient to retain the possible profit in the Company.
The primary goal of Mabion is to develop, manufacture and market oncology drugs which are biosimilar to the original biotechnology drugs already present on the market (so called reference drugs). Currently, the Company’s priority is to launch MabionCD20 onto as many international markets as possible. The Company intends to carry out the marketing authorisation process on its own, under a centralised procedure for the whole European Union where the system of registration for biosimilars is well-regulated. Moreover, one of the Company’s objectives is to launch drugs onto the American market. When it comes to regions with a less regulated system of marketing authorisation, such as African and Asian countries, Mabion plans to carry out both the sales and the whole authorisation procedure through local leading pharmaceutical companies on the basis of distribution agreements. The market of biotechnology drugs is already very attractive and its worth should increase significantly in the course of upcoming years. The strategy adopted by Mabion S.A. provides for the continuation of research and development pursuits in the field of new biotherapeutics. It's anticipated that the development strategy will be financed mainly by the Company’s own funds, as well as grants from the EU and national funds.
