BioPorto A/S announces results of rights issue – Offering fully subscribed
By company announcement no. 2 of 7 March 2022, BioPorto A/S (“BioPorto” or the “Company”) announced the initiation of a rights issue (the “Offering”) with pre-emptive subscription rights (the “Pre-emptive Rights”) for the Company’s existing shareholders (the “Existing Shareholders”) allowing for subscription of up to 66,938,601 new shares with a nominal value of DKK 1 each (the “New Shares”).
The subscription period for the New Shares has expired, and BioPorto is pleased to announce that the offering was fully subscribed and thus 66,938,601 of the New Shares have been subscribed. A total 34,917,082 New Shares were subscribed for by exercise of pre-emptive rights, and the remaining shares were subscribed pursuant to separate undertakings, advance subscription commitments, or guarantee undertakings.
“We are very appreciative of the support of a majority of our shareholders and our institutional partners, including their collective commitment to strengthen the Company’s capital resources and advance implementation of its strategic priorities, including a clinical trial and application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for approval of The NGAL Test for assessment of Acute Kidney Injury in children under the age of 22 (pediatrics) in the U.S.,” said Tony Pare, BioPorto’s Chief Executive Officer. “Following a potential approval by the FDA of The NGAL Test in pediatrics, our strategic priorities include development of the Company’s U.S. organization to commercialize The NGAL Test.”
The Company expects to complete the Offering when payment of subscription amounts has taken place and the New Shares have been registered with the Danish Business Authority, expectedly on 1 April 2022. As soon as possible thereafter, the New Shares will be admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S under the Company’s permanent ISIN-code (DK0011048619), expectedly no later than 4 April 2022.
As stated in company announcement no. 2 on 7 March 2022, the Offering may be withdrawn at any time prior to the registration of the capital increase relating to the Offering with the Danish Business Authority. Any such withdrawal would be notified via Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S.
The expected timetable for the Offering remains unchanged.
