Press Release Biophytis completes a €10.4 M capital increase to finance mid-stage clinical trials for two novel anti-aging drug-candidates Paris (France), October 11, 2017, 7:30am - BIOPHYTIS (Euronext Growth Paris: ALBPS), a biotechnology company specializing in the development of drug candidates to treat age-related diseases, announces entry into definitive agreements for a € 10.4 million capital raise via the issuance of new ordinary shares without shareholders' preferential subscription rights and reserved to institutional investors in Europe and the United States.

Stanislas Veillet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Biophytis, said: "We are pleased to announce that we successfully receive commitment for capital raise, which provides Biophytis with the means to finance the clinical development programs of its two main drug candidates in age-related diseases. This raise will enable us to significantly strengthen our shareholder structure, notably thanks to the support of leading American and European investors, who have shown their confidence in the potential of our therapeutic approach."

Invest Corporate Finance acted as global coordinator for the operation. Invest Securities and H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as exclusive placement agent for the offering in Europe and the United States, respectively.

The funds raised will provide Biophytis with additional resources to continue its clinical development in age- related diseases, such as Sarcopenia and Age-Related Macular Degeneration, and will especially be used to finance:

  • The launch of the 26-week, multi-center, international and interventional study SARA-INT in 334 sarcopenic patients for which the IND application for FDA approval has been filed in the United States; and

  • The MACA-PK multi-center, international clinical trial to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Macuneos in patients with dry intermediate AMD

The capital raise by means of a private placement consists in the issuance of 1, 989,000 new ordinary shares at a price of €5.25 per share, representing a discount of 9% based on the weighted average price over the last 10 trading days before pricing. The total amount of the operation is 10,442,500 million euros, representing 20% of the share capital of the Company. The new ordinary shares will be the subject of a request for admission to trading on the Euronext Growth market to Euronext.

The Company's Board of Directors approved this capital increase at its meeting of October 10, 2017.

The capital will be increased via the issuance of new shares without shareholders' preferential subscription rights, pursuant to Article 225-136 of the French Commercial Code (by private placement of up to 20% of the share capital). Pursuant to Article 211-3 of the AMF's general regulations, this offer of financial securities did not result in a prospectus subject to AMF approval.
