Xlife Sciences publishes prospectus for listing on SIX Swiss Exchange
Xlife Sciences AG (XLS DE) today has published the prospectus for its intended listing on the "Sparks" segment of SIX Swiss Exchange. The listing and commencement of trading is scheduled for February 11, 2022 (from 3 pm CET*), as already announced.
Oliver R. Baumann, CEO of Xlife Sciences, says: "We are pleased to have reached another important milestone regarding our intended listing on SIX Swiss Exchange with today's publication of the listing prospectus."
The Company and its Value Chain
Xlife Sciences brings carefully selected early-stage projects in the four areas of technological platforms, biotechnology/therapies, medical technology, and artificial intelligence/digital health to the next stage of development. The focus is on preclinical projects in biotechnology that are acquired from a university, a clinical center, or a research institution. If Xlife Sciences decides to take over the invention disclosure, usually a separate project company is founded for this purpose.
Xlife Sciences generally focuses its involvement in a project on the early phase, i.e., until completion of the so-called "proof-of-concept" phase, and subsequently strives to commercialize the project company, e. g., through a sale of the company or individual product candidates ("trade sale"), through out-licensing of products or patents, or through an IPO of the project company. This strategy enables Xlife Sciences to realize an increase in value already after the proof-of-concept phase. Potential future growth opportunities are also captured with possible milestone payments and royalties in the later market phase.
Planned listing on SIX Swiss Exchange
Currently, the company is admitted to trading on the Munich Stock Exchange (unregulated market ["Freiverkehr"] in the segment m:access) with a market capitalization of EUR 233 million as of the end of 2021. In view of the listing on SIX Swiss Exchange on the new "Sparks" segment, trading of the shares of Xlife Sciences AG on the Munich Stock Exchange is to be terminated as of 10 February 2022. The shares can be traded on SIX Swiss Exchange after the change of the stock exchange.

The non-current assets totaling CHF 186 million at the end of September 2021 mainly consist of investments in ten of a total of 23 project companies, which were measured at fair value of CHF 175 million. The publication of the consolidated financial statements for the entire 2021 financial year is scheduled for the end of April 2022.
