Founded in 2001, TaiGen Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (“TaiGen Taiwan” or “TaiGen”) is a research-based and product-driven pharmaceutical company engaging in the development of novel therapeutics for infectious diseases, cancer and diabetes-related complications. TaiGen has a wholly-owned Beijing subsidiary with a proven capacity to conduct clinical trials and related registrations. There are 77 FTEs including 80% R&D staffs in Taipei and Beijing offices.

 In 2008, TaiGen Taiwan completed a share swap with TaiGen Biopharmaceuticals Holdings Limited (“TaiGen Cayman” or “TaiGen”), and has become a fully owned subsidiary of TaiGen Cayman. TaiGen Cayman will be the legal entity for TaiGen’s IPO; as of Sept. 2013, there are approx. 674 million shares issued and outstanding, each with par value of US$0.001.

TaiGen has raised a total of US$131 million since its inception; principle shareholders include Taiwan’s National Development Fund, Yuen Foong Yu (YFY) Group, China Development Industrial Bank, Shin Kong Life Insurance, Cathay Life Insurance, China Steel Corporation, Taiwan Sugar Corporation, Yao-Hwa Glass Management Commission, and Taiwan Global BioFund.

TaiGen has built a fully-integrated pharmaceutical company by pursuing a business strategy that capitalizes on the management team’s extensive expertise in drug discovery, development, global regulatory approval processes, and commercialization in China. Senior executives at TaiGen were recruited from both major pharmaceutical/biotech companies in the West as well as from Asian-based multinational companies. This unique expertise allows the company to focus on in-licensing  innovative drugs targeting Asian-prevalent diseases to complement its own internal research programs as well as to partner its organic drug development programs. In addition, TaiGen has formed marketing alliances to capture the rapidly-expanding Asian pharmaceutical market.

TaiGen’s current pipeline includes ‘first-in-class’ and ‘best-in-class’ products with worldwide IP rights.
