Xlife Sciences AG: Exit of a project company

More than 20 million euros transaction completed

Xlife Sciences AG has successfully realized its 60% stake of the project company Araxa Biosciences GmbH in Veraxa Biotech AG (formerly Velaxa AG). This transaction has a total value of more than 20 million euros and Xlife Sciences AG will now become a part of the Board of Directors of Veraxa as a minority shareholder. Veraxa Biotech AG is positioned as a leading provider in the identification and development of functional antibodies and drug conjugates.

Xlife Sciences AG will exceed its earnings expectations for 2020 with this first completed transaction since founding of the company. Araxa Biosciences GmbH was a spin-off from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory EMBL in Heidelberg and was founded by Xlife Sciences AG in summer 2019. Over the past one and a half years, Xlife has invested nearly one million euros in the company. In collaboration with various industry experts, the technological development of Araxa has been successfully advanced.
