Genus Share Price Information

Name Genus Epic GNS
Sector Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology ISIN GB0002074580
Activites Genus plc is a world-leading animal genetics company. We continuously produce better breeding livestock with desirable characteristics, which helps farmers to produce better quality meat and milk more efficiently and sustainably. We do this by analysing animals' DNA to select those with desirable characteristics, and then breed successive generations from those animals. We also own technology to screen and process semen for desirable traits, such as gender, and license technology to make precise, desirable gene edits to animals' DNA. Genus's worldwide sales are made in over seventy countries under the trademarks ABS (dairy and beef cattle) and PIC (pigs) and comprise semen, embryos and breeding animals with superior genetics to those animals currently in production. The Group's competitive edge has been created from the ownership and control of proprietary lines of breeding animals, proprietary technology and knowhow used to improve them, relationships with leading meat and milk producers, and its global supply chain and distribution networks.
