Novel and generics pharma producer OncoGenerix and Alpha Capital LLC have come to an agreement to build a new injectable pharmaceutical factory in the US. The production facility will serve as an affiliate factory, similar to the one that OncoGenerix already operates in China. Alpha Capital LLC is considering a Georgia Opportunity Zone as the location for the new plant. The output capacity of the project is expected to reach 20 million vials of injectable oncology products and vaccines.
Earlier this year, Alpha Capital, LLC launched an international capital raise to secure a substantial stake in OncoGenerix, which recently completed a state-of-the-art pharmaceuticals factory in Mudanjiang Province, China. The offering is a first-of-its-kind digital investment opportunity – tokenized ownership of a pharmaceutical facility. Alpha Capital, LLC is offering up to 500 million ONGX Tokens at US $0.12 per token and a US onshore offering of shares in Alpha Capital’s special purpose vehicle. The ONGX Tokens are built on the ERC20 blockchain protocol, serve as a SAFE (simple agreement for future equity), and will be exchangeable at the option of the investor for equity-token securities.
Alpha Capital LLC’s co-founder and CEO Colin Breeze said:
“Our joint work with OncoGenerix is helping to bring new pharma production capacity to US soil. The planned facility will be able to alleviate substantial shortages, as well as increase injectable–liquids and vaccines–manufacturing capability. It’s been hard in the past for independent investors to enter the pharmaceutical industry as building pharma production capacity takes substantial investments of financial capital and time. Individual investors typically were only able to access this vertical via publicly traded securities. The ONGX Token makes it possible for individual investors to step in earlier, while reducing the investment ticket size by orders of magnitude.”
Oleksandr Zabudkin, CEO of OncoGenerix, said:
“We are excited to extend our manufacturing capacity to the United States together with Alpha Capital and look forward to helping solve existing oncology drug shortages to support the US market.”
