ERYTECH Pharma (Paris:ERYP) (ADR:EYRYY) (Euronext Paris - ERYP), the French biopharmaceutical company that develops innovative ‘tumor starvation’ treatments for acute leukemia and other oncology indications with unmet medical needs (the "Company"), today announces the closing of a private placement of 940,000 ordinary shares to qualified investors in the United States and Europe for a total amount of approximately €25.4 million.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the private placement in order to fund the following initiatives in accordance with the progress of the development of its product candidates:
- the continued clinical development of its ERY-ASP/GRASPA specifically (i) for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) as a first-line therapy in Europe and the United States, and (ii) for the treatment of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma;
- the development of new product candidates, including (i) the Phase I clinical trial of its product candidate, ERY-MET, and (ii) the incubation of its tumor vaccination program, ERY-VAX; and
- the development of its ERYCAPS platform technology and other pre-clinical development programs.
The Company intends to use the remainder of the funds for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
The capital raise was subscribed by prominent institutional investors in the United States and in Europe.
“We are pleased with the successful completion of this placement,” commented Gil Beyen, Chairman and CEO of ERYTECH Pharma. “The proceeds of this financing will allow us to expand our key clinical and preclinical programs, including the launch of global pivotal trials with our lead product candidate ERY-ASP/GRASPA as a first-line treatment for ALL, and to target the U.S. market. This capital increase, with the participation of prominent institutional investors, also strengthens our base of investors in the United States. This raise is fully consistent with our overall financing strategy, which continues to include a potential registered initial public offering of our securities in the U.S., as we previously announced in July.”
Admission of the new shares
As of today, the new shares are entitled to current dividend rights and are immediately fungible in existing shares. The new shares will be admitted to trading on the Euronext Paris under ISIN FR0011471135 – ERYP as of Tuesday, December 8, 2015.
The share capital of the Company is now 784,953 euros, composed of 7,849,531 shares with a nominal value of €0.10.

The Company placed 940,000 new shares with a par value of €0.10, at a price of €27.00 per share, including share premium, for a total amount subscribed of approximately €25.4 million, representing approximately 14% of the share capital of the Company.
