Great Point Partners Makes $22 Million Equity Commitment to Bionova Scientific

Great Point Partners (“GPP”), a Greenwich-based private investment firm focused on the health care industry, today announced a $22 million equity commitment to Bionova Scientific, a leading specialized biologics contract development and manufacturing organization (“CDMO”). GPP funded $13.3 million at closing, with a commitment to fund an additional $9 million over the next two years. Founded in 2014 and based in Fremont, CA, Bionova helps clients manage all aspects of biologics development and manufacturing, from early stage research material generation to process development to contract manufacturing services. Great Point’s growth equity investment allows Bionova to complete the build out of a 57,000 square foot GMP facility in Fremont, CA with the capability to manufacture clinical grade protein therapeutics for its global customer base.

Bionova marks Great Point’s second investment in the biologics CDMO space, as GPP previously invested in Cytovance Biologics.

“We are thrilled to once again invest in the biologics CDMO industry and look forward to replicating the success we had with Cytovance,” said Noah Rhodes, Managing Director at Great Point Partners. “We have known Amy, Chung, and the Bionova team for a number of years and look forward to helping them better serve their customers through the build out of a first-class biologics GMP facility in the Bay Area.”

“Great Point’s long track record of investing in the pharmaceutical services industry and their previous experience with Cytovance made them an ideal partner to help accelerate Bionova’s growth,” said Amy Kong, CEO of Bionova.

“We have built a great relationship with Great Point and are excited to have them as partners, as we strive to better serve our customers in the Bay Area and around the world,” added Chung Chun, COO at Bionova.
