In addition, the loan will support the Company's efforts to expand its existing Good Manufacturing Practice certified production capabilities and accelerate the completion of its fourth production site in Tübingen, Germany. The EIB financing will be provided in three €25 million tranches upon completion of pre-defined milestones.
