BIOSYNEX : Announces the Great Success of Its Capital Increase Through Placement With Qualified Investors for an Amount of €15m

01/29/2021 | 04:29am EDT

Regulatory News:

BIOSYNEX (FR0011005933/ Mnemonic : ALBIO) (Paris: ALBIO), a major player in public health, today announces the great success of its capital increase without shareholders' preferential subscription rights for a final amount of € 15 million through an offering to qualified French and international investors (“the Transaction”) carried out by accelerated bookbuilding. The order book was largely covered, based on sustained demand from new and existing institutional investors, totaling € 20.24m.

The Transaction leaded to the issue of 882,352 new shares with a unit par value of € 0.10, i.e. 9.64% of the Company's current share capital, at a price per share of € 17.00 (issue premium included), for a total amount of €14,999,984 (or 8.79% of the post-transaction share capital of the Company).

Following the Transaction, the Company's share capital now consists of 10,036,337 shares with a par value of €0.10 each. Based on the available cash (€ 11.08 million as of June 30, 2020) and its forecast income and expenses, the amount raised as a result of the Transaction should enable the Company to achieve its strategic objectives and to cover its working capital needs well beyond the next 12 months.

Larry ABENSUR, Chairman and CEO, said on this occasion: « We would like to thank the long-standing shareholders for having participated in this fundraising which demonstrates their involvement and their confidence in the Company and are delighted to welcome new investors, particularly foreign investors, to BIOSYNEX's share capital..»

USE OF PROCEEDS

The funds raised will enable the Group to accelerate its development towards new outlets through external growth operations. These external growth operations will aim to complete its range of rapid visual tests with small, rapid, and connected diagnostic equipment.

MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TRANSACTION

A total number of 882,352 new ordinary shares, with a unit par value of €0.10, were issued to 23 qualified investors, including 9 foreign investors (Europe), within the meaning of article 2 (e) of Regulation (EU) No. 2017/1129 of June 14, 2017, as referred to in 1 ° of Article L.411-2 of the Monetary and Financial Code, in accordance with the 9th resolution of the General Meeting of the Company held on June 8, 2020.

The issue price of the new shares was set at €17.00 per share, representing a discount of 17.62% compared to the volume-weighted average of the BIOSYNEX share on the Euronext Growth Paris market of the quoted prices of the last five (5) trading sessions prior to the price being set (ie from January 22 to January 28, 2021), i.e. €20.635 , and a discount of 13.27% compared to the BIOSYNEX share closing price on January 28, 2021, i.e. €19.60, in accordance with the decisions of the Board of Directors of January 28, 2021, taken pursuant to the 9th resolution of the General Meeting held on June 8, 2020, which set the maximum authorized discount at 20% of the average weighted prices of the quoted prices of the last five (5) trading sessions preceding the fixing of the price.
