ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, December 3 /PRNewswire/ -- arGEN-X BV, a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of human antibodies using its proprietary SIMPLE Antibody(TM) platform, today announced the successful second closing of its Series A equity financing round. The Company raised an additional EUR 3.0 million (~USD 4.5 million) from two leading life science investors, Credit Agricole Private Equity and VIB (the prestigious Flemish research institute).

arGEN-X has raised a total of EUR 12.5million (~USD 18.7 million) from its completed Series A equity financing round, which was heavily oversubscribed.

Philippe Guinot, a senior partner at Credit Agricole Private Equity, joined the arGEN-X Supervisory Board.

The Series A round was co-led by Forbion Capital Partners (The Netherlands) and LSP (Life Sciences Partners - The Netherlands). Other members of the syndicate, which invested in the first closing of EUR 9.5 million, were KBC Private Equity (Belgium), BioGeneration Ventures (The Netherlands) and existing shareholders Erasmus MC Biomedical Fund and Thuja Capital Healthcare Funds.
