Hervé Affagard, co-founder and CEO of MaaT Pharma, said: “This IPO opens a new chapter in the history of MaaT Pharma and represents an important milestone for our sector, as it is the first listing of a company developing microbiota-based drugs in continental Europe. Our entire team would like to thank our new shareholders, both institutional and individual, as well as our historical shareholders and our ecosystem, who have chosen to contribute to our success, and whose trust honours us. The funds raised will enable us to pursue our clinical and industrial development plan and to accompany our product MaaT013 into Phase III and then towards a marketing authorisation procedure. Our ambition is to become the reference player in the world of microbiota in oncology for the benefit of millions of patients.”
