Sioux Falls, SD March 29, 2024 (GlobeNewswire)—SAB Biotherapeutics, Inc.

“During 2023, we significantly changed the direction of our company to focus on SAB-142, our innovative, human anti-thymocyte immune globulin for the prevention of progression of T1D” stated Samuel J. Reich, Chairman and CEO of SAB. “Our pivot to SAB-142 catalyzed our capital raise of up to $110 million, led by a dedicated group of specialist investors, many of whom have deep knowledge about the needs of patients with T1D. We are grateful for their support in our drive to bring the benefits of SAB-142 to T1D patients in need.
