Date:11/20/2012

OLATHE, Kan., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kansas Bioscience Authority board of directors today approved $700,000 in new investments. The investments are:

  • Parnell, an Australian veterinary pharmaceutical company, received a $400,000 grant to support the company's move to establish a North American headquarters in the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor. The grant will help to defray the company's hiring during the next year of 14 new employees with an average annual wage of $150,000.
  • A $300,000 grant will support the establishment in Kansas of a contract research organization by a firm established elsewhere in the country. The company expects to create 16 new jobs at its proposed Kansas site, with an average salary of $65,000 a year, as well as to attract new federal, state and privately funded research projects. The company also plans to work with Kansas research institutions to advance research and commercialization activities. The KBA has agreed to hold confidential the identity of the company pending the completion of certain negotiations related to its relocation to Kansas.

Approved investments are subject to final agreements between the Kansas Bioscience Authority and investees, with payments made only as the recipients achieve specified milestones.
