Benzinga ·  Apr 1 09:02

BioLineRx Ltd. (NASDAQ:BLRX) (TASE: BLRX) ("BioLineRx" or the "Company"), a commercial stage biopharmaceutical company pursuing life-changing therapies in oncology and rare diseases, today announced that it has entered into definitive agreements with several institutional investors for the issuance and sale in a registered direct offering of 7,500,000 of the Company's American Depositary Shares (ADSs) and warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 7,500,000 ADSs, at a combined purchase price of $0.80 per ADS and accompanying warrant. Each ADS represents fifteen (15) ordinary shares, par value NIS 0.10 per share, of BioLineRx. The warrants will have an exercise price of $0.80 per ADS, will be exercisable at any time upon issuance and will expire five years from the date of issuance. The offering is expected to close on or about April 1, 2024, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The gross proceeds from the offering (without taking into account any proceeds from any future exercises of warrants), before deducting the placement agent's fees and other offering expenses payable by the Company, are expected to be $6.0 million. BioLineRx intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to support the commercialization of APHEXDA (motixafortide) with an indication in the U.S. for stem cell mobilization for autologous transplantation in patients with multiple myeloma, advance its pancreatic cancer clinical development program and other pipeline programs, and for general corporate purposes.

"We believe that today's equity transaction, when combined with the potential drawdown of an additional $20 million tranche from our existing debt facility at favorable interest rates, together with our existing cash, provides the Company with the financial resources to continue building our momentum with the APHEXDA launch and advancing key life cycle programs for long-term growth opportunities", said Philip Serlin, Chief Executive Officer of BioLineRx.

JonesTrading Institutional Services LLC is acting as the exclusive placement agent for the offering.
