“Our largest shareholder, Equilibria Capital, a Bermuda-based asset-management company, encouraged us to consider re-domesticating to the island. In addition to the close physical proximity to the US, an important market for our products, we have been highly impressed with Bermuda’s infrastructure, legal system, political stability and, most importantly, the quality of the workforce. We have found it easy to set up our business here and would wholeheartedly encourage other biotech companies to consider moving to the island.”
