Press Release

Newron launches a private placement of new shares

Newron
Posted on: 07 Oct 16

Milan, Italy – October 6, 2016 – Newron Pharmaceuticals S.p.A. (“Newron”, SIX: NWRN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel therapies for patients with diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) and pain, announces the launch of a private placement of new shares to institutional investors for up to 10% of the company’s share capital, the ordinary shares originating from the capital increase approved by Newron’s shareholders’ meeting on March 22, 2016. In line with the shareholders’ approval, option rights of the existing shareholders are excluded.

Newron intends to use the net proceeds of the issuance for general corporate purposes, including the financing of Newron's operations and research programs, for the development of Newron's current and future pipeline products with a focus on orphan indications, and products/product candidates that need certain regulatory and development efforts to repurpose them and if such aforementioned development programs are successfully completed, to explore the possibility of establishing commercialization operations for certain selected territories.

 

The new shares will be placed with institutional investors through an accelerated book building process, which will open with immediate effect. Newron and Newron’s board members and executive management will agree with the Placement Agents to a lock-up on future share issuances and existing shareholdings, as applicable, for a period of 90 days from the closing date, subject to customary exceptions.

 

Newron will announce the results of the issuance as soon as possible after the closing of the book-build.
