    Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (hereafter, Daiichi Sankyo) today announced the scheme for the reorganization of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kitamoto City, Saitama Prefecture; hereafter, Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine), a subsidiary of Daiichi Sankyo, into a subsidiary specializing in manufacturing as of April 27, 2018. The reorganization scheme, including the absorption-type merger of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine into Daiichi Sankyo, was resolved at the board of directors meeting held today.

    I. Purpose of the reorganization

    Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine is engaged in the research and development, manufacturing, and sales of human vaccines for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

    The manufacturing functions of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine will be transferred to Daiichi Sankyo Biotech Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kitamoto City, Saitama Prefecture; hereafter, Daiichi Sankyo Biotech), founded in August 2018, to ensure stable manufacturing and quality improvement, and the functions other than manufacturing to Daiichi Sankyo, which will take the initiative in promoting and thus strengthening the vaccine businesses as the manufacturer and distributor of our group.

    II. Scheme of the reorganization

    As a result of the absorption-type split, the manufacturing and production technology functions of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine (the company being acquired) will be transferred to Daiichi Sankyo Biotech (the acquiring company), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daiichi Sankyo.

    As a result of the absorption-type merger of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine operations (merged company) into Daiichi Sankyo (merging company), businesses other than the manufacturing and production technology functions (e.g., research and development, reliability assurance, and sales), and the manufacturing and marketing approval of Kitasato Daiichi Sankyo Vaccine will be transferred to Daiichi Sankyo (hereafter, “the merger”).
