PHOENIX, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing or acquiring technologies that help pharmaceutical companies discover and develop medicines, on their Stock Day Podcast. CEO and President, Joseph Moscato, talked with host Everett Jolly about recent acquisitions.
Jolly started the interview by asking Moscato about two M and A’s the company is working on right now, Regentys Corporation and Olaregen Therapeutix Inc.
“We are moving to close Olaregen as well as Regentys,” explains Moscato. “We are looking to close both within the next 10 days. The docs are being done now by our legal teams and we are real excited about both of those opportunities.”
Olaregen Therapeutix Inc. has the FDA Approved Excellagen, a proprietary, patented wound care product focused on the treatment of complicated wounds including Diabetic ulcers and 16 other FDA approved indications.
“Our first product will be ready to hit the market by February and it’s a game changing product. It’s pretty fantastic.” He added, “Olaregen has now started sales and our first big batch of product will be delivered in the coming weeks so we can start filling those orders.”
Regentys is a regenerative medicine company focused on developing treatments for patients with gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. The company’s first product, Regentys Extra-Cellular Matrix Hydrogel, is a first-in-class, nonpharmacologic, non-surgical treatment option for patients suffering from Ulcerative Colitis.
“Regentys has its approval and pathway for 510K de novo, and our hope is to get into the clinics very, very quickly to get that approval,” said Moscato.
Jolly then mentioned that the company recently spoke with investors about another company they are looking to acquire, he asked for an update.
“The company over the years has done hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues. That fluctuates year by year based on formulary, based on reimbursement protocols nationwide. It’s a great business, we’ve been auditing it since January. We acquired two of their pharmacies back last January and those we could acquire because they didn’t need to be audited.” He also said, “The audits are almost complete, the numbers don’t lie, once we get those final numbers, we will move to close that acquisition.”
Jolly then asked about the acquisition of Veneto Holdings, L.L.C and noted that the company was in 3 states, he wanted to know why they chose Veneto.
“It’s a company that has another 24 states that its model is perfect in. We just launched 4 additional states for a total of 7. We will be launching 3 or 4 within the next month and altogether there will be 27 states this model will be highly effective in,” explained Moscato. “The growth trajectory, the future is what we paid for this business.”
In closing Moscato said that Generex is executing on all levels and has many other acquisitions they are looking at that will add significant value to the company.
