Corporate overview

Our Business model

Unlike classical pharma start-ups and due to the entrepreneurial spirit of the founders, the company began its business by commercializing products mainly under licences and gradually reinvested its revenues in R&D programs at increasingly early stages. Since its incorporation in 2005, the growth rate of the company was only based on its capability to self-financing from its own development. With this positive financial profile, enabling Addmedica to invest in its future, the company has currently a complete portfolio of developing products from early stage development to market phase.
On the  strength of this credible and robust platform for adding new products, in early 2019, Addmedica opened its capital structure to MERIEUX Development in order to speed up and develop the company with an extended portfolio in new territories.
