Transition to Sole Listing of Shares on NASDAQ
An extraordinary general shareholders’ meeting of the Company held on November 3, 2023, approved the proposed transition from a dual listing of the Company’s American Depositary Shares on Nasdaq and ordinary shares (the “Shares”) on Euronext Brussels to a sole listing of Shares on Nasdaq (the “Transaction”), as well as the share consolidation with respect to all outstanding Shares by means of a 1-for-10 reverse stock split (the “Share Consolidation”). As a result, the Company can now start implementing the Transaction and Share Consolidation, as further outlined in the press release issued by the Company on November 6, 2023.
Earnout payment to Exact Sciences
On August 23, 2023, mdxhealth and Exact Sciences Corporation amended their existing Oncotype DX GPS prostate cancer business asset purchase agreement, deferring mdxhealth’s initial earnout payment by 3 years, from 2024 to 2027, in consideration for an amendment fee of $250,000 in cash and 250,000 of the Company’s ADSs, a 5-year subscription right (warrant) to acquire up to 1,000,000 of the Company’s ADSs at an exercise price of $5.265 per ADS (representing a 50% premium to the market price of the ADSs as of August 18, 2023), and an increase in the potential aggregate earnout amount from $70 million to $82.5 million. The Company agreed to convene a general shareholders’ meeting to approve the subscription right. Under the terms of the amended asset purchase agreement, mdxhealth has agreed to make earn-out payments to Exact Sciences in each of fiscal years 2025, 2026 and 2027, based upon certain revenues related to fiscal years 2024, 2025 and 2023, respectively. At the option of mdxhealth, the earn-out amounts can be settled in cash or through the issuance of additional ADSs or Shares of the Company (valued as a function of the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s Shares at the end of the relevant earnout period) to Exact Sciences, provided that the aggregate number of shares held by Exact Sciences shall not exceed more than 7.5% (increased from 5% in the initial agreement) of the outstanding shares of mdxhealth.
On August 9, 2023, mdxhealth announced that Cigna, one of the largest health insurers in the United States, expanded commercial and Medicare Advantage coverage to include the Company’s Select mdx for Prostate Cancer test. With the addition of Select mdx, Cigna will now provide insurance coverage across mdxhealth’s full menu of precision diagnostic cancer tests, including its Confirm mdx and GPS tests, which represent more than 15 million lives under coverage. Contracted coverage with Cigna for the Select mdx test is expected to take effect in Q4 of this year.
