OptiBiotix Health plc

("OptiBiotix" or the "Company")

License agreement for LP(LDL) (R) in personalised nutrition applications

OptiBiotix Health plc (AIM: OPTI), a life sciences business developing compounds to tackle obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, announces that its fully-owned subsidiary ProBiotix Health Ltd., has signed a license agreement with Instituto Español de Nutrición Personalizada, S.A. ("IENP") for the use of Lactobacillus plantarum ("LP(LDL) (R)") in personalised food supplements in Spain.

The agreement grants IENP non-exclusive rights to manufacture and market food supplements containing OptiBiotix's cholesterol and blood pressure-reducing probiotic strain LP(LDL) (R) in Spain for a period of three years. IENP is the precision nutrition branch of CAPSA Food, one of the largest food conglomerates in Spain, owner of leading dairy brands such as Central Lechera Asturiana and Larsa, with annual revenues of over EUR700m. In 2017, they were awarded 'Leading company in the Food Sector' with the ORO +500 SEAL of European Excellence and the Reptrak first prize for the company with the best reputation in Spain by the Reputation Institute (see

IENP have developed an innovative genomic test to analyse the gut microbiome, the bacteria living in the intestine, to detect imbalances which may potentially lead to different health conditions. Based on results, customers are placed on different, targeted food supplement regimens to take their microbiome composition back to healthy. IENP have developed COL-15, a microbiome-modulating food supplement commercialised under the "39ytú" brand. IENP will use their extensive network to market the product in supermarkets, department stores, pharmacies, and online across Spain.

Personalised nutrition is a nascent field which holds the promise to revolutionise the way food, health and wellness are conceived. According to Reseach And Markets (2018), the global market for personalised nutrition is expected to grow by CAGR ca. 10% to USD$50bn by 2025, with food supplements its fastest-growing segment.

Dr. Luis Gosálbez, Business Development Director of OptiBiotix, commented: "We are delighted to enter the field of personalised and precision nutrition, one of the fastest-growing and highest-value sectors within the food industry. We chose IENP due to its industry reputation, decades of experience in the Spanish food market, and its ability to rapidly launch products and build sales. Within two years of launch, we now have products being sold by numerous partners in over 30 countries around the world. This builds revenues and increases the value of our trademarked and patented assets, like LP(LDL) (R), as it grows into a global brand. We see this agreement as another step to growing revenues, market presence, and brand value of LP(LDL) (R), the 'Intel' inside a wide range of products in consumer and pharmaceutical markets around the world."
