Copenhagen, Denmark, May 31, 2022 – With reference to company announcement no. 24/2022 dated May 15, 2022, regarding the execution of an agreement to sell substantially all of the assets and business operations of Orphazyme to KemPharm Denmark A/S, a wholly owned subsidiary of KemPharm Inc. (KMPH : NASDAQ, NY), (“KemPharm”), and company announcement no. 28/2022 dated May 30, 2022, with respect to the approval of the proposed restructuring, Orphazyme A/S (ORPH) (“Orphazyme” or the “Company”), announces today that it has completed the sale of the substantially all of its assets and business operations for cash consideration of $12.8 million and the assumption of liabilities estimated at approximately $5.2 million (the “Asset Sale”) to KemPharm following the adoption of the restructuring proposal.
Following the completion of the sale of assets to KemPharm, Orphazyme will no longer have ongoing operational business activities and KemPharm will retain all remaining Danish Orphazyme employees, to continue early access programs with arimoclomol and to pursue potential approval of arimoclomol as a treatment option for NPC.
“We are very pleased to have completed the sale of assets to KemPharm given Orphazyme’s situation in legal restructuring, as the agreement is able to satisfy our obligations to creditors and employees and given that KemPharm has a particular interest in taking possession of arimoclomol and pursuing the development of arimoclomol in the hope of making it available to NPC patients,” said Georges Gemayel, Chairman of the Board of Orphazyme.
