Sinovac Got $515 Million Fund To Double Production Of Covid Vaccine

On Monday, China’s Sinovac Biotech announced that it has secured $515 million in funding from a local firm to double production capacity of its coronavirus vaccine, as it expects efficacy data of its experimental shot this month.

On Mondaay, China’s Sino Biopharmaceutical Limited said a business unit will invest $515 million in Sinovac Life Sciences, a subsidiary of Sinovac, to help development and production of CoronaVac.

The investment will give Sino Biopharmaceutical a 15.03% interest in Sinovac Life Sciences, Sino Biopharmaceutical said in a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Sinovac said in a separate statement that it would be able to manufacture 300 million vaccine doses annually and aims to complete construction of a second production facility by the end of 2020 to increase annual COVID-19 vaccine production capacity to 600 million doses.

Sinovac has secured CoronaVac supply deals with several countries including Indonesia, Turkey, Brazil and Chile, and is holding talks with the Philippines for a potential sale.
