Investing in QBiotics Group
QBiotics is not a typical life sciences company, and we intend to stay that way. We are innovative and lateral thinkers. As such, we offer investors a highly-differentiated opportunity with a lower-risk profile than the usual life sciences or biotechnology organisations.
QBiotics discovers new small molecules from Australia’s biodiverse tropical rainforests. Our proven EcoLogic™ discovery technology enables QBiotics to confidently and efficiently identify new chemical entities that have long-term commercial potential in a wide range of therapeutic areas. By applying our EcoLogic™ technology, QBiotics achieves significantly higher discovery success rates than any current or previous natural exploration program employed by our competitors. The resulting large pool of bioactive compounds supports rigorous selection criteria, thus only candidates with high potential for success are advanced into development. Simultaneous early stage development of pharmaceuticals for both the human and veterinary markets further differentiates QBiotics as a life sciences company. We obtain very early stage proof of concept of our pharmaceuticals by challenging them in 'real world' disease models in the veterinary clinic. This supports swift progression from laboratory animal models that provide limited information about drug efficacy and safety to complex disease models in animal patients that are potentially more predictive of the human response.
QBiotics also bring world-class commercial and scientific rigor to our pharmaceutical development and to our drug manufacturing processes. Strategic alliances with preclinical, clinical and pharmaceutical partners help further de-risk the typical life sciences investment profile by giving us cost-effective access to multiple development channels as well as providing robust R&D pipeline validation.
Why should you invest in QBiotics?
QBiotics offers investors a diversified platform for future revenue growth. We have multiple pharmaceutical products currently grouped into two primary clusters - oncology and wound healing. QBiotics de-risks investor returns by gaining early clinical proof-of-concept of our products in the veterinary environment prior to implementing human programs. This is because our highly successful proprietary EcoLogic™ technology reduces discovery time and complexity. The swifter to clinical development and through to revenue, veterinary products underpin the shape and finance of our higher value human clinical developments. Investment in QBiotics means buying a focused effort in comparative health with risk spread across linked, but distinct, indications.
Buying & Selling Shares
Steps for Buying or Selling Shares in QBiotics Group Limited
QBiotics Group Limited (“the Company” or "QBiotics Group") is an Australian public unlisted company (not listed on any stock exchange) and, therefore, there is no recognised secondary market for trading the Company's shares. You should view an investment in QBiotics Group as a long-term investment with limited liquidity.
However, in some cases shareholders may be able to sell shares. A shareholder may notify the Company that they would like to sell shares and be placed on a register of potential sellers. Similarly, an investor may notify the Company that they wish to buy shares and be placed on a register of potential buyers.
QBiotics Group maintains a register of potential buyers and sellers of shares. Buyers and sellers may then contact each other and negotiate a transfer. QBiotics Group does not guarantee to shareholders that there will be a buyer for their shares at any time, or for the price desired or required.
Potential buyers and sellers wanting to buy or sell shares can follow the steps set out below to buy or sell shares:
- The BUYER/SELLER complete the form 'Registration of interest to buy or sell shares in QBiotics Group Limited' ("Registration Form") and forward the signed form to the Company as directed on the Registration Form.
- When the Company receives a completed Registration Form from a BUYER, the Company will forward (by email) the BUYER the current list of registered SELLERS.

- The BUYER and SELLER ("the Parties") must liaise directly in relation to the price and number of shares to be transferred. The Company will have no involvement in determining the terms of the sale or purchase between the BUYER and the SELLER.
- If the Parties are able to agree upon the number of shares to be transferred and the price for such transfer, the BUYER and SELLER must complete the Link Market Services ("Link") Standard Transfer Form ("the Transfer Form").
