PacificGMP to Merge With Pacific Biopharma Group and Create Innovative US-Compliant cGMP Contract Biomanufacturing Facility in China
Date:6/18/2008

SAN DIEGO, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- PacificGMP and Pacific Biopharma Group (PBG) announced that they have signed a definitive merger agreement and will develop a cGMP (current good manufacturing practices) biologics contract manufacturing organization (CMO) in Taizhou, China. At approximately 200,000 square feet, the Taizhou-based CMO, called China Quantitative Biomedicine (CQB), will be one of the largest single-use biomanufacturing facilities in the US or China. Construction of the facility in Taizhou is expected to be completed in August 2008 with internal construction and equipment installation expected to be completed by the end of 2008.

Under conditions of the merger agreement, PacificGMP will receive funds to expand its operation in San Diego and assist in the development of the Taizhou facility and preparations for FDA and EMEA audits. The new facility is a showcase laboratory and part of a new biopharmaceutical park called China Medical City (CMC). CMC is a 12 km2 life sciences focused science park located 2.5 hrs outside of Shanghai in Jiangsu Province, the leading pharmaceutical manufacturing province in China. The facility will be modeled after PacificGMP's San Diego facility that utilizes single-use technology throughout the biomanufacturing process. Single-use technology has far fewer system requirements than traditional re-usable biomanufacturing systems and significantly reduces the cost of product manufacturing.

"We believe a significant opportunity exists for global leadership in single-use contract manufacturing services," said Gary Pierce, Chief Business Officer of PacificGMP and new Chief Operating Officer of PBG. "PacificGMP brings know how and experience in single-use contract manufacturing and PBG brings management and operational know how and experiences in both the US and China as well as significant investment expansion capital."

"We look forward to contributing to the development of a state-of-the-art biomanufac
