EIPICO mulls financing methods for biomedicine project

Cairo – Mubasher: The Egyptian International Pharmaceutical Industries (EIPICO) is currently studying the working drawings of its new biomedicine project.

In response to news reports stating that the company received four offers from banks for a funding of EGP 800 million for its biomedicine project, EIPICO said that it is currently studying offers submitted by several banks to finance the project, but it hasn’t taken a final decision yet on the method of finance, according to a bourse disclosure on Sunday.
