IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM – June 24, 2015 – MDxHealth SA (Euronext Brussels: MDXH), announced today that it has successfully raised € 27,675,000 (or USD 31,007,070) in gross proceeds by means of a private placement of 6,150,000 new shares with a group of institutional, qualified or professional investors (including, subject to applicable securities law, rules and regulations, natural persons) in and outside of Belgium at an issue price of € 4.50 (or USD 5.041) per share. The closing price of the MDxHealth share on Euronext Brussels on June 23, 2015, before the launch of the private placement, was € 4.829 per share. Petercam acted as Global Coordinator and Petercam and KBC Securities acted as Joint Bookrunners in the private placement.
“We are delighted to have raised this additional funding from a mix of new investors who share our belief in the commercial potential of our world leading DNA methylation platform,” said Jan Groen, chief executive officer of MDxHealth. “In combination with our existing cash position, these funds allow us to support and scale-up the Company’s U.S.-based managed care and related healthcare reimbursement efforts, its clinical affairs efforts and its sales and marketing efforts. In addition, it will allow us to accelerate product development, amongst others, by conducting clinical studies to further support the clinical validity of the ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test and tests in development for bladder cancer, and to finance general corporate purposes.”
Petercam, acting as Settlement Agent, has entered into a share swap agreement with a core shareholder of the company in order to deliver listed shares to all investors who receive allocated shares in the private placement. As part of this share swap agreement, the core shareholder will deliver existing and listed shares to the Settlement Agent. The core shareholder shall receive in exchange the same number of newly issued non-listed shares. The shares that the core shareholder will receive as a result of the share swap agreement will be listed upon approval of a listing prospectus by the FSMA on a later date. The payment and delivery of the listed shares to the investors is expected to take place on June 26, 2015.
The new shares to be issued will have the same rights and benefits as, and rank pari passu in all respects with, the existing and outstanding shares of MDxHealth at the moment of their issuance and will be entitled to distributions in respect of which the relevant record date or due date falls on or after the date of issue of the new shares.
As a result of the issuance of new shares, the company’s share capital will increase from € 30,191,238.09 to € 35,097,093.09 and its issued and outstanding shares will increase from 37,848,490 to 43,998,490 ordinary shares.
