The Board will be authorised to decide on issues with or without pre-emption rights for the shareholders and/or with provisions of payment in kind, right of set-off and/or other conditions.
The basis for the determination of the subscription price when deviating from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights shall be the share’s, the convertible’s or the warrant’s market value at the time of the respective issue, taking into account rebates in accordance with the market conditions, when applicable.
The number of shares that the Board shall be entitled to issue, the number of shares that convertibles may entitle to and the number of shares that may be subscribed for on account of warrants, shall totally amount to no more than 4,047,000 new shares, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 20 per cent.

A decision in accordance with the Board’s proposal is only valid if it supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds of both votes cast and shares represented at the general meeting.

Promore Pharma in brief:
Promore Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company specialized in the development of therapeutic peptides. The company’s aim is to develop first-in-category pharmaceuticals for indications where very few efficacious prescription pharmaceuticals are available, thus, addressing high unmet medical needs. Promore Pharma’s two projects are in late stage clinical development phase and have a very strong safety profile since they are based on innate substances that are administered locally. The leading project, PXL01, that will be used for prevention of post-surgical adhesions and scars, is being prepared for clinical phase III-studies in patients undergoing tendon repair surgery in the hand. LL-37 has initiated a clinical phase IIb study in patients with venous leg ulcers (VLU). The product candidates can also be deployed for other indications, such as preventing dermal scarring, adhesions after other surgical procedures and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. The company is listed on Nasdaq First North.
