GenScript General Information


GenScript Biotech is a China-based provider of life science research services and products. Founded in 2002, GenScript's core business is gene synthesis, a widely used service by academics, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical companies around the world. In 2014, GenScript was the largest global provider of gene synthesis, with 25% market share. In addition to its traditional business of providing gene synthesis and other life science services and products, it is the sole owner of a prerevenue cell therapy biotech company called Legend Biotech, whose key pipeline asset is a BCMA-targeting CAR-T treatment for multiple myeloma. We estimate that more than two thirds of GenScript's valuation is from Legend.
