Negma Group has converted 180 convertible bonds resulting in a EUR 450,000 capital increase and Kreos/Pontifax convertible bonds have been reimbursed in an amount of EUR 3 million

Leuven, BELGIUM, Boston, MA, US – June 30 , 2022 8.00 PM CET – In accordance with article 15 of the Belgian Act of May 2, 2007 on the disclosure of major participations in issuers of which shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market and regarding miscellaneous provisions, Oxurion NV (Euronext Brussels: OXUR) (the “Company” or “Oxurion”), announces the below information concerning the conversion of the Negma bonds, following the issuance of 1,216,216 new ordinary shares on June 7 (as listed on June 9), 2022, for a total amount of EUR 450,000, as the result of the conversion of 180 convertible bonds pursuant to the Capital Commitment entered into with Negma Group.

Following completion of the capital increase through the conversion of the Negma convertible bonds the total number of shares issued by Oxurion amounts to 49,821,189 outstanding ordinary shares carrying voting rights (compared to 48,604,973 outstanding ordinary shares previously). This number will be used as the denominator for the calculation of the percentages of shareholdings.

In addition, Oxurion has reimbursed EUR 3 million (30%) of the Kreos/Pontifax Convertible Bonds issued in December 2021. Within that framework, the cash covenant has been reduced from EUR 4 million to EUR 3 million and the interest-only period has been extended until the end of the third quarter of 2022. The reimbursement reduces the total number of shares to be issued upon a potential conversion of the Kreos/Pontifax Convertible Bonds by 1,034,482 shares without impacting the cash runway included in the Company’s Prospectus issued in March 2022.

Therefore, Oxurion publishes the following updated information:
