PARIS, April 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quantum Genomics (Euronext Growth – FR0011648971 – ALQGC), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of a new class of drugs that directly targets the brain to treat difficult-to-treat/resistant hypertension and heart failure, today announced it has secured €3 million in non-dilutive financing through grants from the French government and BNP bank and an R&D loan from Bpifrance.
BNP bank has granted a €1.5 million loan, guaranteed by the French government (PGE) with an initial 12 months maturity, at a rate of 0.25%. The Company has been given the option to request 5 years’ amortization.
Bpifrance has granted a €1.5 million innovation and R&D loan for a period of 7.6 years at an interest rate of 0.72%. First reimbursement is scheduled on December 31, 2023.
“We would like to thank the French government, Bpifrance and our banking partners for their support in this financing. This additional non-dilutive financing, which processes were initiated last November 2020, secured our treasury in a context which remain uncertain. This comes at an important time for our Company, following our recent capital raise in December 2020 and the signing of various partnerships with various strategic partners in 2020, all of which will serve to strengthen and accelerate our R&D programs,” said Jean-Philippe Milon, Chief Executive Officer of Quantum Genomics.
