  • Objective: development of new connected medical devices and marketing of devices in new countries

Regulatory News:

BIOCORP (FR0012788065 – ALCOR / Eligible PEA PME), a French company specialized in the design, development, and manufacturing of innovative medical devices, announces the issuance of convertible bonds under an agreement concluded on December 30, 2022, with three funds managed by the management company Vatel Capital.

Eric Dessertenne, CEO of BIOCORP, declares: "This issue, carried out in the same spirit as the previous convertible bond issues to funds managed by Vatel Capital and now fully repaid, represents an interesting opportunity for BIOCORP to increase our financing capacity while controlling the associated dilution risk. This is in line with what we announced at the end of last year and we are delighted to be able to allocate new resources to BIOCORP's strong development.”

This issue allows BIOCORP to strengthen its available cash up to 2.5 M€ and thus, to finance the development of new connected medical devices and the marketing of devices in new countries.

The issue was authorized at a meeting of the Board of Directors on December 21, 2022, implementing the twelfth resolution approved by the Combined General Meeting of May 17, 2022, namely a delegation of authority to the Board of Directors to decide to issue ordinary shares of the Company and/or any other securities giving immediate or future access to the share capital, without pre-emptive subscription rights, by way of an offer as provided for in 1° of article L.411-2 of the French Monetary and Financial Code, up to a maximum of 20% of the capital per year.

The 2,500,000 convertible bonds with a nominal value of €1 were fully subscribed by three funds managed by the management company Vatel Capital. These convertible bonds will not be admitted to trading on Euronext Growth Paris. However, any shares resulting from the conversion of the convertible bonds will be listed on the same line as the existing shares (ISIN code FR0012788065).

The three funds managed by the management company Vatel Capital will be able to request the conversion of these bonds at any time, if they are not repaid (principal, interest and non-conversion premium included) by BIOCORP in accordance with a monthly amortization schedule, in the event of a breach by the Company of its declarations under the contract of issuance of the bonds or in the event of the occurrence of one of the events listed in the contract of issuance. The bond issue is not subject to any financial covenants and is not secured.

In case of conversion of the convertible bonds, the conversion ratio will be calculated by dividing the nominal amount of the convertible bonds for which conversion is requested by 90% of the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Company's share during a period of twenty (20) trading days immediately preceding the date of conversion of said convertible bonds. The maximum number of new BIOCORP shares that may be issued upon conversion of the convertible bonds is 882,457 shares.

The 2,500,000 convertible bonds are issued for a term of five (5) years expiring on December 28, 2027, and bear interest at an annual rate of 7.9% per annum. This annual rate will be increased by a non-conversion premium which will be capitalized and equal to an additional interest of 0.1%. The interest will be paid in full in cash.

On the basis of the existing share capital of the Company, which amounts to 220,614.30 euros divided into 4,412,286 shares with a nominal value of 0.05 €, a shareholder holding 1.00% of the share capital of the Company would hold 0.83% of it, assuming that all the convertible bonds would be converted and that the maximum number of new shares would be issued, resulting in the issuance of a total number of 882,457 shares.

Based on the Company's financial statements at June 30, 2022, the Company's share of equity would be as follows:

Share of equity (amount of equity at June 30, 2022): € 803,345

Before the issue of the convertible bonds

0,1821 €

After issue and conversion of convertible bonds

0,6239 €

BIOCORP is being advised by Fieldfisher on the legal aspects of the transaction.
