Lipoxen PLC

£2.9m Fundraising

RNS Number : 9720S
Lipoxen PLC
29 May 2009
 



For immediate release

29 May 2009


Lipoxen plc

('Lipoxen' or the 'Company')


£2.9 MILLION FUNDRAISING

~ Led by Baxter International Inc ~


Lipoxen plc (AIM: LPX), a bio-pharmaceutical company specialising in the development of high-value differentiated biologicals, vaccines and siRNA delivery, announces today that it has raised approximately £2.9 million before expenses through a non pre-emptive issue of shares (the 'Fundraising') consisting of a placing to institutional investors, a subscription by Baxter International Inc. ('Baxter') and a subscription by senior management and certain directors of a combined total of 34,200,000 new ordinary shares of 0.5 pence each (the 'Placing Shares'). Noble & Company are acting as lead broker and Singer Capital Markets are acting as joint broker to the Fundraising. 


Highlights of the Fundraising:

  • Fundraising led by Baxter International Inc., the global healthcare company that has an existing license agreement with Lipoxen worth up to a total of US$75 million to develop improved, longer-acting forms of blood-clotting factors - see separate announcement issued today

  • Transaction supported by new institutional investors and certain of Lipoxen's Directors and senior management

  • Proceeds of the Fundraising will be used to fund:
       -   Pre-clinical R&D and feasibility studies for proprietary and prospective collaborative candidate development 
           directed at new licence initiatives;
       -   LPX contribution to EPO product candidate to EMEA/FDA Phase IIa clinical trials;
       -   IP protection;
       -   Initiation of new proprietary protein and vaccine programs to enhance long-term shareholder value creation, 
           and
       -   Working capital.


The Placing Shares, which represent approximately 28.5 per cent of the Company's issued share capital prior to the Fundraising and circa 22.2 per cent of the enlarged issued share capital, have been placed by Noble & Company and Singer Capital Markets at a placing price of 8.5 pence per share. The placing price represents a discount of 39 per cent. to the closing middle market price on the London Stock Exchange on 27 May 2009


Under the terms of the Fundraising, Baxter as well as Lipoxen's two largest shareholders, the Serum Institute of India Ltd and FDS Pharma LLP, have entered into orderly marketing agreements in respect of all their respective shareholdings in the Company. The orderly marketing agreements provide that any sale of their shares in Lipoxen must be done through Noble & Company for a period of 12 months from the date of admission of the Placing Shares


Commenting on the Placing, M. Scott Maguire, CEO of Lipoxen, said: 'We are very pleased with the support shown in this Fundraising from both our partner, Baxter, and leading UK and European institutional investorsWe believe that, together with the recent positive announcements surrounding our influenza and malaria initiatives, this funding round demonstrates that Lipoxen has a valuable pipeline, a low risk partnered business strategy and is well positioned for future growth and generation of shareholder value.'


Following the Fundraising, Lipoxen will have a total of 154,058,085 ordinary shares with voting rights in issue. Therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company is 154,058,085. This number can be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations which will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules. Admission of these Placing Shares is expected to become effective on 29 May 2009. The Placing Shares, when issued and fully paid, will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of the Company.
