AlzeCure Pharma AB (“AlzeCure” or “the Company”), a pharmaceutical company that develops a broad portfolio of small molecule drug candidates for diseases affecting the central nervous system, with projects in both Alzheimer’s disease and pain, today announced the final outcome of the rights issue with preferential rights for the shareholders (the “Rights Issue”) that ended on May 17, 2024. AlzeCure obtains SEK 39,2 million before issuing costs. Those who have been allocated shares without the support of subscription rights will be notified by contract note alternatively through their nominee.

The subscription period for the Rights Issue ended on May 17, 2024 and the final summary shows that 20 678 415 shares, corresponding to approximately 66.6 percent, were subscribed for by the exercise of subscription rights. In addition, the Company received interest from investors of subscribing an additional 2 364 046 shares without the support of subscription rights, corresponding to approximately 7,6 percent for a total subscription with and without the exercise of subscription rights of 74,2 percent. AlzeCure therefore obtains SEK 39,2 million before issue costs. With this outcome, the company has not had to use the bottom guarantee issued by Formue Nord Markedsneutral A/S.

Notification of allotment of shares subscribed for without exercising subscription rights will shortly be sent to those who have been allotted shares via contract note. Nominee shareholders receive notification of allotment in accordance with the respective nominee’s routines. Allocation of shares subscribed for without the exercise of subscription rights has been carried out in accordance with the principles stated in the prospectus that was published on April 29, 2024.

“We thank you for the continued support from our main shareholders and other existing shareholders, and also welcome new shareholders to AlzeCure. We also thank you for the trust in AlzeCure and our research, as well as the interest in continuing to support and take part in our world-leading research in Alzheimer’s and pain also in the future. Moreover, we are very grateful for and strengthened by the support and the progress made during 2023 and spring 2024.

With this new capital we will be able to drive the business development and projects forward. The focus is to drive continued development of the Alzstatin platform’s two candidates in order to identify a final potential clinical candidate and to continue to drive the TrkA-NAM program through the pre-clinical development phase towards the clinic. Furthermore, in the coming period, we plan to develop plans for phase II clinical studies for ACD856 in Alzheimer’s and for ACD440 against neuropathic pain. In parallel, we have a continued strong focus on business development with the goal of securing an out-licensing deal for one of our projects. We are looking forward to an eventful and productive 2024-2025 with our promising projects based on strong support from our existing and new owners,” says Martin Jönsson, CEO AlzeCure.

About AlzeCure Pharma AB (publ)

AlzeCure® is a Swedish pharmaceutical company that develops new innovative small molecule drug therapies for the treatment of severe diseases and conditions that affect the central nervous system, such as Alzheimer’s disease and pain – indications for which currently available treatment is very limited. The company is listed on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market and is developing several parallel drug candidates based on three research platforms: NeuroRestore®, Alzstatin® and Painless.

NeuroRestore consists of two symptomatic drug candidates where the unique mechanism of action allows for multiple indications, including Alzheimer’s disease, as well as cognitive disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, sleep apnea and Parkinson’s disease. The Alzstatin platform focuses on developing disease-modifying and preventive drug candidates for early treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and comprises two drug projects. Painless is the company’s research platform in the field of pain and contains two projects: ACD440, which is a drug candidate in the clinical development phase for the treatment of neuropathic pain, and TrkA-NAM, which targets other types of severe pain in conditions such as arthritis. AlzeCure aims to pursue its own projects through preclinical research and development through an early clinical phase and is continually working on business development to find suitable solutions for license agreements with other pharmaceutical companies.
