Allergy Therapeutics proactively initiates a short-term pause in UK manufacturing to optimise quality systems and accelerate capacity improvements



04 October 2022 Allergy Therapeutics plc (AIM: AGY), the fully integrated commercial biotechnology company specialising in allergen immunotherapy, today announces that it has proactively paused production at the Freeman facility, part of its Worthing, UK manufacturing site, in order to accelerate ongoing site improvements. No areas for improvement are related to the safety of products and all of the Group's clinical trials remain unaffected.


The partial pause in production follows an internal review of current operating processes and is part of the Group's previously communicated ongoing programme to improve the robustness of its quality systems and build capacity across its manufacturing facilities.


Work is ongoing to minimise the commercial impact. We currently believe the pause in production will be confined to a number of weeks and we are working to limit the impact on revenue in that period.


Manuel Llobet, CEO at Allergy Therapeutics, stated: "This temporary pausing of production is a necessary step to ensure that we can both continue to deliver the highest standards of quality in our products and build capacity for the future growth of the Group. It does not affect the safety of our products. Our work to deliver ongoing improvements has identified a number of systems that require further optimisation. Accelerating this work will ensure Allergy Therapeutics is fit for the future across its growing portfolio.


"We continue to support our strong R&D driven pipeline. Our clinical trials remain on track and are completely unaffected by these manufacturing improvements."
