Oncodesign Precision Medicine (OPM), a subsidiary of Oncodesign (ALONC – FR0011766229) (Paris:ALONC), and Oncodesign announce that Euronext Paris S.A. has authorised on September 26, 2022 the admission to listing on Euronext Access + market in Paris of OPM’s ordinary shares, under the direct listing procedure in the context of the allocation of OPM shares to Oncodesign shareholders. This allocation remains subject to approval by the general meeting of Oncodesign to be held at Dijon, on 30 September 2022.
ONCODESIGN’s shareholders will receive, after Oncodesign’s general meeting and subject to its approval, one OPM share for one ONCODESIGN share held.
The IPO will be carried out at a price of €0.817/share, representing a market capitalisation of €5.6 million, corresponding to the valuation of the independent expert, Arthaud & Associés, on 26 September 2022. This valuation has been updated following the latest developments in OPM, notably the exercise by Servier of the exclusive worldwide license option on the Parkinson’s disease program which will trigger a €7 million milestone payment (see press release dated September 26, 2022) as well as the signature of a strategic collaboration with Servier for the discovery of new therapeutic targets in the treatment of pancreatic cancer which will also trigger the payment of a first milestone of €0.5 million (see press release dated September 22, 2022) .

A capital increase of approximately €8 million guaranteed by OPM’s management for a minimum of 75% will be launched before the end of 2022.
