Leuven, BELGIUM, Boston, MA, US – August 11, 2023 – 8 am CET – Oxurion NV (Euronext Brussels: OXUR), a biopharmaceutical company developing next-generation standard of care ophthalmic therapies, with clinical stage assets in vascular retinal disorders, has announced the completion of Tranche 4 of funding under the Subscription Agreement with Atlas.
On August 10, 2023, the Company issued 40 convertible bonds with a value of EUR one million to Atlas. Under the terms of the Subscription Agreement, Atlas has committed to subscribe to up to EUR 20.8 million in mandatorily convertible bonds over a 24-month period, of which it has now subscribed to EUR 8.8 million. The conversion price is set at an eight percent discount to the average VWAP over the three lowest days in the ten consecutive trading days prior to the conversion notice.
Tom Graney, CEO of Oxurion, said: “We appreciate Atlas’s continued financial commitment to Oxurion and their confidence in THR-149 as we enter the final stretch of the KALAHARI trial. The trial is evaluating THR-149 versus aflibercept, the market leader, in treating the up to 50% of patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) for whom the current standard of care is suboptimal. We look forward to sharing the top-line results from this trial next quarter, in which we hope to demonstrate the superior efficacy of THR-149 in addressing this large unmet need since DME remains the leading cause of blindness for working aged people.”
