Copenhagen, Denmark, April 29, 2022 – Orphazyme A/S in restructuring (ORPHA.CO; ORPH) (“Orphazyme” or the “Company”), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company, announces an update to the in-court restructuring proceedings of the Company (please see company announcement no. 10/2022 and 11/2022).
In accordance with the statutory restructuring plan referenced in company announcement nos. 15/2022, 17/2022 and 20/2022, Orphazyme has been pursuing potential opportunities for a sale of its assets and operations, a sale of the Company and/or a refinancing (potentially in combination with a compulsory composition).
Orphazyme has to date received certain non-binding offers (the “Offers”) to purchase all of Orphazyme’s assets and operations. The terms of the Offers received to date indicate that the vast majority of the consideration to be paid to Orphazyme would be used to settle outstanding recognised liabilities of Orphazyme’s current creditors. Following negotiations, Orphazyme, with respect to the Offers received, expects to enter into exclusive negotiations with a selected potential buyer. Following completion of such transaction, Orphazyme would have no activities and would be dissolved, when possible.
There can be no guarantee that that any transaction will be completed as proposed, or at all, or at any particular time.
Further announcement(s) will be made by Orphazyme if a binding agreement is reached with respect to any offer.
