Company Registration No. 32266355


Copenhagen, Denmark, February 14, 2022 – Orphazyme A/S (ORPHA.CO; ORPH) (“Orphazyme” or the “Company”), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering the Heat-Shock Protein response for the treatment of neurodegenerative orphan diseases, today announced that the Board of Directors has decided to limit the scope of the proposed authorizations set forward under items 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 of the agenda of the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held tomorrow, February 15, 2022.

This entails that the proposed authorizations to increase the share capital by issuance of shares, convertible bonds and warrants, as applicable, will be subject to such share capital increases taking place at or above market price and that share capital increases below market price will not be authorized as initially proposed.

The wording of the revised more limited authorizations proposed under agenda items 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 are set out below:

Article 3.7:

“In the period until 1 January 2027, the Board of Directors is authorised to increase the Company’s share capital through one or more issues of new shares without pre-emption rights for the Company’s existing shareholders by up to a nominal amount of DKK 20,000,000. The capital increase may be effected by cash payment or conversion of debt and shall take place at market price as determined by the Board of Directors.”

Article 3.8:

“In the period until 1 January 2027, the Board of Directors is authorised to issue convertible bonds on one or more occasions without pre-emption rights for the existing shareholders and with a total principal amount of up to DKK 70,000,000 which are convertible into shares in the Company. The convertible bonds shall be effected by cash payment. The conversion price as determined by the Board of Directors may be above or at the market price at the time of issuance of the convertible bonds. The issuance of convertible bonds may be directed at qualified investors. The Board of Directors is authorised in the period until 1 January 2027 to increase the Company’s share capital by up to nominally DKK 20,000,000 by conversion of convertible bonds issued pursuant to this Article 3.8 and to effect the associated capital increases.”

Article 3.9:

“In the period until 1 January 2027, the Board of Directors is authorised to issue warrants on one or more occasions without pre-emption rights for the existing shareholders granting the holders right to subscribe for shares in the Company for a total amount of up to nominally DKK 20,000,000. The Board of Directors is entitled to determine the exercise price for the warrants upon issue given that the exercise price may be above or at the market price at the time of issuance. The Board of Directors is authorised in the period until 1 January 2027 to increase the Company’s share capital by up to nominally DKK 20,000,000 resulting from the exercise of warrants pursuant to this Article 3.9 and to effect the associated capital increases.”

The amended authorizations proposed under agenda items 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 shall be passed by at least two-thirds of the votes cast as well as at least two-thirds of the share capital represented at the Extraordinary General Meeting, cf. Article 7.2 of the Articles of Association.
