ObsEva announces the rejection of moratorium procedures

Ad hoc publication based on Art. 53 LR of the Swiss Stock Exchange SIX

GENEVA, SwitzerlandDecember 19in 2022ObsEva SA (NASDAQ: OBSV; SIX: OBSN), a biopharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes new therapies for women’s health, announced today that the competent court in Geneva, Switzerland approved the Company’s request to lift the moratorium, given that the Company is no longer over-indebted.

The company resolved its over-indebtedness due to the previously announced sale of all of its rights to Ebopiprant to XOMA Corporation (XOMA) for an upfront payment of $15 million. Additionally, ObsEva is eligible to receive future milestone payments of up to approximately $98 million upon achievement of certain development and regulatory goals and sales targets related to the development of Ebopiprant under the license agreement with Organon. In July 2021, ObsEva granted a license to Organon for the global development, manufacturing and commercial rights to Ebopiprant.

“The dismissal of the moratorium proceedings marks a milestone for ObsEva, as we now look ahead to the future development of nolasiban and other strategic options to maximize shareholder value,” said Brian O’Callaghan, CEO of ObsEva. “Having resolved our over-indebtedness and strengthened our financial position through a series of restructuring initiatives in recent months, we are now focusing our resources on nolasiban. Nolasiban has potential as a novel, oral oxytocin receptor antagonist being developed to improve the success rate of in vitro fertilization, for which there is significant unmet global need.”

ObsEva retains worldwide, exclusive, commercial rights to nolasiban, except for the People’s Republic of China, where its partner Yuyuan BioScience plans to initiate a clinical trial following the recent approval of their New Drug Application in China.
