Recombinetics Closes $34m in Series A Funding

29 August 2018

US - Recombinetics, a pioneer in gene-editing solutions for human health and animal agriculture, has announced the completion of a $34 million Series A financing round.

“We’re pleased to announce the successful completion of our Series A Round,” said Tammy Lee, President and CEO of Recombinetics. “This financing will allow us to accelerate commercialization of this transformative science to help find cures for human diseases, develop new regenerative medicine products and breed animals that are healthier and more productive.”

The Company’s Founder, Dr Scott Fahrenkrug, added, “The success of this capital raise reflects confidence in the vision of Recombinetics’ founders, and in the ability of the Board of Directors and management team to execute against that vision.

"The proceeds will accelerate the commercialization of genetic solutions for animal agriculture, swine preclinical research, and so-called “oinkubators” for producing therapeutic cells, tissues and organs.”

Proceeds will be used to accelerate new research and development by adding scientists and expertise focused on emerging science, including regenerative medicine; to continue to add to our robust intellectual property and patent portfolio; expand the laboratory, animal care and advanced reproductive facilities; and build out the business development, product marketing and management team to take advantage of licensing and co-development opportunities. In conjunction with this financing, Recombinetics has converted or repaid all of its outstanding debt.
