SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jaguar Animal Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAGX) (“Jaguar” or the “Company”), an
animal health company focused on developing and commercializing
first-in-class gastrointestinal products for companion and production
animals, and horses, announced today the appointment of Philippe
Brianceau, DVM, as chief veterinary officer, effective immediately.

Philippe Brianceau brings more than 20 years of animal health experience

Intervet, where he remained through the organization’s acquisition by
Merck Pharmaceuticals in 2009.

pivotal time for the Company, as we recently announced additional
positive findings from our SB-300 proof-of-concept study for equine
gastric ulcer syndrome,” said Lisa Conte, Jaguar’s president and CEO.
“Philippe’s research and development experience at Merck Animal Health
in conjunction with his past experience in equine internal medicine and
surgery will provide unparalleled insight into the equine and companion
animal markets—two of our core focus areas. We are confident in his
ability to lead our veterinary team as we pursue regulatory approvals
and initiate further clinical trials and research activities.”

Philippe Brianceau stated, “I am very excited to be named chief
veterinary officer of an emerging animal health company committed to
developing innovative, first-in-class products for both companion and
production animals. I look forward to leveraging my experience in
pharmaceutical product development and my background in veterinary
medicine and surgery to help Jaguar bring the multiple products in its
pipeline to market.”
