Alvotech Announces Increase in Number of Own Shares

REYKJAVIK, Iceland, March 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alvotech (NASDAQ: ALVO) (the “Company”), a global biotech company specializing in the development and manufacture of biosimilar medicines for patients worldwide, has increased the Company´s share capital by an amount of one hundred and thirty thousand (USD 130,000) by issuing thirteen million (13,000,000) ordinary shares. The Company’s subsidiary, Alvotech Manco ehf. (the “subsidiary”), has subscribed to all of the newly issued shares for a price of USD 15.98 per share. The shares held by the subsidiary are treated as treasury shares without voting rights or dividend entitlement.

Following the above-mentioned transactions, the subsidiary will hold 23,160,596 shares in the Company, or around 7.7% of issued shares, and the number of issued shares has increased from 289,727,462 to 302,727,462 shares as a result thereof.

On 26 February 2024, the Company announced that it had accepted an offer from investors for the sale of 10,127,132 ordinary shares, previously held by the subsidiary. The share capital increase is intended to meet the reduction in the number of treasury shares resulting from settlement of the above-mentioned sale of ordinary shares, allowing the Company to continue holding a sufficient number of shares to fulfill the Company’s commitments related to various financial obligations, including warrants, convertible financial instruments, and share-based employee compensation.
