Paul Chaplin, President & Chief Executive Officer of Bavarian Nordic said: “These are exciting times for Bavarian Nordic as we have continued to expand our activities to support the global response against monkeypox, while also running two global Phase 3 trials of our late-stage pipeline assets. We are highly encouraged to see how our vaccines can truly make a difference by providing comfort for the populations at-risk and helping to change the course of the monkeypox outbreak. More than 1 million people have received our vaccine since the beginning of the outbreak and the number grows day by day and we have already secured significant orders for 2023 and beyond. Deliveries were intensified over the last 3 months and will continue into the fourth quarter as we expand the supply of our smallpox/monkeypox vaccine to more than 70 countries worldwide. The increased sales of our products across the portfolio are driving all-time high revenues and we are nearing an EBITDA break-even result for 2022.”

Other highlights

To expand the manufacturing footprint to increase supply, the doses will also be filled at a U.S. based contract manufacturer following the tech transfer of the manufacturing process.
  • In July, the European Commission approved an extension of the current marketing authorization for the Company’s smallpox vaccine, IMVANEX® to include protection from monkeypox and disease caused by vaccinia virus.
  • In July, Bavarian Nordic received approvals from the U.S. and EU regulatory authorities of the fill and finish manufacturing of smallpox and monkeypox vaccine at the Company’s new facility in Denmark.
  • In August, Bavarian Nordic entered a supply agreement with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) enabling access to monkeypox vaccines for countries in Latin America.

  • Enrollment is proceeding as planned in the global Phase 3 clinical trial of MVA-BN RSV against RSV in older adults.


  • In September, Bavarian Nordic initiated a global Phase 3 clinical trial of its COVID-19 booster vaccine candidate, ABNCoV2. The trial will assess the non-inferiority of ABNCoV2 compared to Comirnaty® in terms of neutralizing antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 (Wuhan wild type).

Other business

  • In September, the board of directors appointed Luc Debruyne, former President Global Vaccines at GSK, as an observer to the board with the intent to nominate him for election to the board at the ordinary general meeting in March 2023, where he, following the board’s constitution, is expected to assume the chairmanship after Gerard van Odijk, who will step down after having served for 15 years on the board.

Events after the reporting date

  • In October, Bavarian Nordic signed its first bilateral agreement with a country in Latin America on the supply of monkeypox vaccines, thus expanding access to the vaccine in the region beyond the availability of vaccines through PAHO.

  • In October, Bavarian Nordic reported results from a six-month follow-up analysis of data from subjects vaccinated in the Phase 2 clinical trial of its COVID-19 booster vaccine candidate, ABNCoV2, demonstrating that six months post the booster vaccination with ABNCoV2, the neutralization antibody titers against Wuhan and the Omicron variant remained high and at levels associated with a greater than 90% efficacy.
