This reverse stock split operation aims at reducing Pharnext share price volatility and fostering its stabilization.
The reverse stock split is a share exchange transaction with no impact on the amount of share capital: only the par value of the share and, consequently, the number of outstanding shares are modified.
The reverse stock split operation will begin on Monday, October 24, 2022, and end on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.The first day of trading for the new post reverse split shares will be Wednesday, November 23, 2022.
The main terms of the operation as of today's date are as follows:
- Number of shares covered by reverse stock split: 3,989,334,569
- ISIN of pre-reverse split shares: FR0011191287
- Reverse split ratio: 1 new share equals 5,000 old shares
- Number of post-reverse split shares: : 797.866
- ISIN of post-reverse split shares: FR001400BV89
This operation will not impact the value of Pharnext shares held in shareholder portfolios, except with regard to fractional shares. Practically speaking, each shareholder will be automatically granted one new share per block of 5,000 old shares by their financial intermediary.
Shareholders holding an exact multiple of 5,000 shares on Tuesday November 22, 2022 will have nothing further to do.
Shareholders whose old shares do not convert into a whole number of new shares (i.e. who do not hold a multiple of 5,000 old shares) will be responsible for purchasing or selling the required number of old shares resulting in fractional shares, in order to obtain a multiple of 5,000 by Tuesday, November 22, 2022inclusive. After this deadline, shareholders who could not hold a multiple of 5,000 old shares will be automatically compensated of their fractional shares by their financial intermediary within 30 days from November 25, 2022.
Indeed, in application of Articles L. 228-6-1 and R. 228-12 of the French Commercial Code, within 30 days after November 25, 2022, new shares corresponding to fractional share rights that cannot be allotted individually will be sold on the stock market by Société Générale Securties Services. The proceeds of this sale will be distributed by their financial intermediaries among the holders of fractional share rights in proportion to their entitlement.
Notice of this reverse stock split will be published in the French legal notice gazette (Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires or BALO) on Friday, October 7, 2022 and available on the following website: https://www.journal-officiel.gouv.fr/pages/balo/.
The entire reverse stock split operation will be carried out by Euronext Paris.
In relation to this operation, the holders of currently outstanding equity warrants, convertible bonds and all other equity derivatives are hereby notified that, in accordance with Articles L. 225-149-1 and R. 225-133 of the French Commercial Code, the Pharnext Board of Directors has decided to suspend exercise of these securities from October 21, 2022 (00:01 Paris time) until Tuesday, November 22, 2022 (inclusive).
