Purpose of the funds raised
The funds raised will enable the Company to strengthen its financial structure and finance its
operations until May 2024, based on the following elements on the following basis:
• Net cash and cash equivalents (including bank overdrafts) amounting to € 7,955 K at June 30,
• Cash consumption by the Company's operations in the second half of 2023, and projected cash
consumption forecasts for 2024;
• Ability of the Company to pre-finance its 2023 CIR;
• The Company's ability to modulate its variable operating expenses as part of its trials
In addition, in view of the above-mentioned factors, the Company's financing requirements to meet
its obligations over the next 12 months are estimated at around 8 million euros.
As a result, the Company will have to seek other sources of debt or equity financing or carry out
partnership or M&A transactions as early as the first quarter of 2024, in order to supplement its
working capital requirements and finance its operating expenses beyond the second quarter of 2024.
The Company will use the proceeds of this capital increase to finalize the development plan for the
registration of glenzocimab in the emergency treatment of stroke. The Company mainly plans to use
the funds raised to finance the completion of the ACTISAVE study, with results expected in the second
quarter of 2024.
