Oxford Finance Corporation and GE Healthcare Financial Services Reaffirm Commitment to Biotech Sector in Europe
Date:12/10/2007

LONDON, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Oxford Finance Corporation and GE Healthcare Financial Services have provided a joint pounds Sterling 7.5 million senior secured loan to Astex Therapeutics Limited. This represents one of the largest venture loans provided to a biotechnology company in Europe.

Astex Therapeutics, based in Cambridge, England, is one of the largest privately-held biotech companies in the UK, concentrating on the discovery and development of small molecule drugs in areas of unmet medical need, with a primary focus on oncology. Astex has an expanding pipeline of products in clinical and pre-clinical development.

"The financing provided to us by Oxford and GE Healthcare Financial Services is an attractive and innovative supplement to the more traditional private equity route, which gives us additional flexibility to execute our strategy for the future," said John Aston, Chief Financial Officer at Astex Therapeutics.

"Oxford is proud to work with GE to provide financial support to Astex Therapeutics' significant drug development initiatives," said J. Alden Philbrick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Finance Corporation. "We are especially pleased to participate in a precedent-setting transaction with one of the leading companies in the UK's growing biotech industry."

"We were delighted to work with these two highly respected companies to close this landmark deal," said Marcus O'Neill, Vice President of GE Healthcare Financial Services' life sciences division in Europe. "We are dedicated to increasing our commitment to European biotech companies and this deal is an important step toward reaching that goal."
