Regulatory News:

Voluntis (Paris:VTX) (Euronext Paris, Ticker: VTX - ISIN: FR0004183960 - the "Company"), a leader in the field of digital therapeutics, announces today the completion of a capital increase without preferential subscription rights exclusively reserved to the category of investors defined below for a total amount of €5.9 million.

The securities were subscribed by quality European investors, most of them specialized in the healthcare sector, including Debiopharm Innovation Fund, Corporate fund of Swiss company Debiopharm, and Indigo, the holding company of M. Eric Carreel, Chairman & co-founder of Withings, which strengthened its position. The issue price of the new shares was set at €4.43 per share, i.e. a discount of 15% on the average of the volume-weighted average price of the last three trading days prior to its setting.

The net proceeds of the capital increase (€5.7 million) will be used by Voluntis to strengthen its financial resources, in particular to develop its commercial activities with the pharmaceutical industry and to contribute to the financing of R&D activities. This capital raising complements the financing tools already in place, notably the €2 million state-guaranteed loan (PGE) and the recently obtained €1 million R&D Innovation loan, and enables the Company to cover its financing needs beyond the next 12 months.

The Company's Board of directors has also decided to appoint Mrs. Tanja Dowe, CEO of Debiopharm Innovation Fund, as a Board’s Observer.

Pierre Leurent, CEO, said: "First and foremost, I would like to thank the investors who have placed their trust in us and contributed to the success of this operation. We were committed to providing ourselves as quickly as possible with the financial visibility necessary to execute our strategic roadmap with confidence. We can now focus on completing the developments for the commercialization of digital therapeutics within the framework of our commercial agreements already concluded and on the negotiation of new collaborations with pharmaceutical companies.”

Eric Elliott, Chairman of the board of directors, said: "We are delighted to welcome Tanja Dowe as a board’s observer following this transaction. We look forward to capitalizing on her excellent knowledge of the digital health sector and her extensive international network.”

Tanja Dowe, CEO of Debiopharm Innovation Fund, adds: "Debiopharm is very pleased to join Voluntis and to contribute to its further growth. The company's positioning at the forefront of the rapidly growing digital therapeutics sector is perfectly aligned with Debiopharm's priority areas of interest, particularly given its industry lead in oncology.”

Guillaume Floch, CFO, added: "We have opted for a hybrid financing, combining the capital increase announced today and debt, in order to optimize our balance sheet structure while limiting the dilutive impact of our financings.”

The placement was led by Banque Delubac & Cie - CIB as lead manager, advisor and overall coordinator of the transaction.

Main terms of the capital increase

The Board of directors of November 20, 2020, using the delegation granted by the Company's combined general meeting of June 29, 2020 under its 26th resolution, decided to issue a total number of 1,339,592 new ordinary shares, with a nominal value of €0.10 each, and reserved the subscription for investors falling within the category of persons defined in the 26th resolution1.

The capital increase, representing approximately 17.6% of the Company's share capital, on a non-diluted basis, prior to the completion of the offering, was carried without shareholders' preferential subscription rights, on the basis of article L. 225-138 of the French Commercial Code.

The issue price of the new shares was set at €4.43 per share. This price corresponds to a discount of 15% compared to the average of the volume-weighted average prices of the last 3 trading sessions prior to its setting, in accordance with the 26th resolution of the Company's combined shareholders' meeting of June 29, 2020. The gross proceeds of the issue for Voluntis are €5,934,392.56 (issue premium included).
