Company Registration No. 32266355

 

 

Copenhagen, Denmark, May 23, 2022 – Orphazyme A/S in restructuring (ORPHA.CO; ORPH) (“Orphazyme” or the “Company”), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company, has previously announced its entry into an agreement with KemPharm Denmark A/S to sell substantially all of its assets and business activities (please see company announcement no. 24/2022) and submission of the restructuring proposal to the Danish Maritime and Commercial High Court (the “Court”) and the Company’s known creditors (please see company announcement no. 26/2022). 

Orphazyme today announces that Stephanie Okey, Carrolee Barlow and Martin Bonde will step down from their positions as members of the Board of Directors as of May 23, 2022 with the view to reduce the number of members of the Board of Directors to three members, as Orphazyme will no longer have any ongoing operational business activities once the restructuring proposal is adopted by the creditors and affirmed by the Court and the transaction with KemPharm Denmark A/S is completed on or around June 1, 2022.

“I would like to thank Stephanie Okey, Carrolee Barlow and Martin Bonde for their many contributions to Orphazyme and we wish them all the best for the future,” said Chairman of the Board of Directors, Georges Gemayel.

Until the upcoming Annual General Meeting expected to be held on June 29, 2022, the Board of Directors will consist of Georges Gemayel, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Bo Jesper Hansen, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Andrew Mercieca.

Additionally, the Company’s board committees will continue with the three board members for the Audit Committee and the Remuneration Committee, with Andrew Mercieca as chairman of the Audit Committee and Bo Jesper Hansen as chairman of the Remuneration Committee, and with two board members for the Nomination Committee, with Bo Jesper Hansen as chairman of the Nomination Committee. The Science Committee will be discontinued.

For the Annual General Meeting of Orphazyme expected to be held on June 29, 2022, it is the intention of the Board of Directors to propose re-election of the current Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors, Bo Jesper Hansen, election of the current CEO and CFO, Anders Fink Vadsholt, as a new member of the Board of Directors, and election of the Company’s current restructuring administrator, John Sommer Schmidt, as a new member of the Board of Directors.

The current Chairman of the Board of Directors, Georges Gemayel, and member of the Board of Directors, Andrew Mercieca, will not be seeking re-election at the upcoming Annual General Meeting.
