Epigenomics AG: Agreement on the Acquisition of Almost All Assets

Berlin, Germany, July 24, 2023 – Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX1, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “Company”) entered today into an agreement (the “Agreement”) on the acquisition of almost all its assets with New Day Diagnostics LLC (the “Acquirer”), a U.S. full-service diagnostics and CRO services company. This successfully concludes the negotiations on such an agreement announced in the ad hoc announcement dated June 12, 2023. Under the Agreement, the Company undertakes in particular to transfer all its patents as well as its entire biobank to the Acquirer and thus transfers all its assets within the meaning of Sec. 179a of the German Stock Corporation Act to the Acquirer. Therefore, in addition to other closing conditions, the agreement requires the approval of the shareholders’ meeting of the Company. The shareholders’ meeting is scheduled for September 11, 2023, and, in addition to approving the Agreement, is also to resolve on a corresponding amendment to the corporate purpose of the Company.

In return, the Company receives a purchase price of up to USD 12.05 million, which consists of the following elements:

  • cash payments in the amount of USD 1.8 million which become due in the amount of USD 0.5 million at closing, USD 1.0 million on December 1, 2023 and USD 0.3 million on June 30, 2024;
  • additional cash payments in the amount of up to USD 8.0 million which become due when certain milestones related to Epi proColon and in particular Epi proColon “Next-Gen” are reached; as well as
  • a shareholding of 3.0% in the Acquirer, in any case, valued at USD 2.25 million.

In addition, the Company receives license payments and earn-out payments (mainly in the form of royalties on sales), which the Company will receive in the event of commercialization of Epi proColon “Next-Gen” likely until October 2043, the end of the patent lifetime.
