2 2 Transaction Summary Company NameProject Koeing Year of Incorporation2003 in the US and 2005 in India Nature of BusinessMedical Device and Biotechnology PromotersProject Koeing US RequirementsThe Promoters are looking for private equity funding round of US$ 30 mn / Outright sale

3 3 Genesis of Project Koeing US: The Backdrop The Backdrop  Over last few decades, global Pharma companies experience rising competition and costs related to conducting research on patented molecules. Thus, they increasingly resort to outsourcing this research or acquiring commercially attractive and ready molecules, esp. Biotech product patents  During the last over 8-10 years, the price of biotech molecules grew substantially ranging between US$ 0.5-16.0 bn. and several large transactions took place with Pharma companies buying or licensing out these molecules from biotech companies  However, the scientists responsible for developing these molecules were rarely sufficiently compensated, leading to a significant level of frustration in the scientist community, On the other hand, the biotech companies walked away with huge profits  Also, while the society was benefited with new innovative products, they came at a high cost Company’s Formation  Given his extensive experience in the Pharma and medical field, the key promoter of Project Koeing US (PK US), identified a unique opportunity of creating a ‘platform’ for research scientists wherein they could internally develop patented molecules at effective costs and reap financial rewards for their efforts  With this background, PK US was formed in year 2003  Many well renowned scientists from the U.S. and India joined PK US as equity holders in the Company and are currently on the Scientific Advisory Board, guiding the development of molecules they have themselves developed  The Company’s entire research team is not only fully dedicated to serving the society with their research contributions but is also focused on providing the same at more economical rates that would not have been possible otherwise

4 4 Project Koeing: A Snapshot  Project Koeing India (PKI) is the Indian subsidiary of PK US and is currently one of the fastest growing biotechnology companies in India  The Company’s vision is “ To improve the quality of human life by assisting in the detection and treatment of cancer and various abnormalities’  PKI has a unique business model of acting as an incubator of various molecules and technology platforms during their development process  The Company has already in-licensed patented molecules and technology platforms in 5 areas related to Cancer and other diseases in India. All these molecules or platforms are fully validated by important authentic agencies from the U.S. and India  Currently, the Company owns 65 patents  CAD: Ready for Market today The CAD based technology for diagnosis of breast cancer and other types soft tissue of cancers. It is a validated technology in the sense that the company has already received Bionexus status from the Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation Sdn. Bhd. And has been tested in over 400 cases in the US and proven to have an accuracy of 95%. Brief Description
