Emergent BioSolutions Completes Acquisition Of Trubion Pharmaceuticals

Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE:EBS) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Trubion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., following a majority vote to approve the merger by Trubion stockholders at a special meeting conducted at Trubion’s Seattle headquarters on October 28, 2010. The acquisition provides Emergent with multiple, advanced stage candidates in the key disease areas of oncology and autoimmunity as well as access to novel and versatile protein therapeutic platforms. Trubion’s platforms have been designed to address the limitations of monoclonal antibodies and complement Emergent’s existing antibody therapeutic capabilities.

"Emergent’s acquisition of Trubion helps achieve our goal of diversifying beyond infectious diseases and marks an important step towards being a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company,” said Fuad El-Hibri, chairman and chief executive officer of Emergent BioSolutions. "We look forward to growing our presence in the state’s vibrant biotech community building on the strengths of the Emergent Seattle team in the field of biotherapeutics."

Emergent will maintain research facilities in Seattle, Washington and the location will become a therapeutics-focused product development site.
