Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR of the SIX Swiss Exchange
GENEVA, Switzerland – August 1, 2022 – ObsEva SA (NASDAQ: OBSV; SIX: OBSN), a biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapies for women’s health, today announced the early retirement of $31 million in debt that was part of amounts owed to certain funds and accounts managed by JGB Management, Inc. (JGB) pursuant to the Company’s Securities Purchase Agreement with JGB. Additionally, the Company has entered into an amendment and forbearance agreement with respect to the outstanding debt held by JGB.
Under the terms of the agreement, ObsEva and JGB agreed to apply the $31 million cash previously held as collateral in a control account against the outstanding convertible notes on a pro rata basis, with JGB waiving a 25% prepayment penalty on the early debt retirement. In addition, JGB has agreed to forbear for a period of up to three months from enforcing any rights or remedies under the notes in connection with certain events of default by the Company in connection with the Company’s prior announced application to the Swiss court for a preliminary moratorium to facilitate the Company’s planned restructuring. In exchange, $1.5 million was added to the outstanding principal balance under the notes, resulting in an aggregate of approximately $11 million of convertible notes outstanding, and the conversion price of the notes was adjusted to a conversion price of $0.26 per share. Further information with respect to the agreement will be provided in a Form 6-K filed by ObsEva with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 1, 2022.
