Altan Pharma to be acquired by Ethypharm

   --    Malin will receive approximately EUR68 million from the sale of Altan 

-- Malin expects to make a significant return of capital to shareholders following the close of the Altan sale, expected during the second half of 2021

Dublin-Ireland, 18 June 2021 : Malin Corporation plc. (Euronext Growth Dublin:MLC) (Malin), a company investing in highly innovative life sciences companies, today announces that its investee company subsidiary, Altan Pharma (Altan), has entered into a definitive agreement with Ethypharm, pursuant to which Ethypharm will acquire all outstanding shares of Altan.

Malin owns approximately 65% of the issued share capital of Altan and the sale of Altan will deliver net proceeds to Malin of approximately EUR68 million after the repayment of Altan's net debt and the payment of transaction related costs.

The closing of the transaction, which is subject to competition authority filings, is expected during the second half of 2021. Jefferies International Limited acted as the sole financial advisor to Altan on the transaction.

Following this announcement, Malin's estimated fair value of its investment in Altan has increased to approximately EUR68 million (equates to approximately EUR1.52 per Malin share). This represents a 13% premium to the last disclosed estimate of the fair value of Malin's investment in Altan of EUR60.4 million at 19 March 2021.

Malin expects to use the net proceeds received from the sale of Altan, along with cash on hand, to undertake a significant return of capital to shareholders post the close of this transaction. Further details of the timing and mechanism of the return will be communicated when the Altan transaction closes.

Commenting on the transaction, Darragh Lyons, CEO of Malin and Chairman of Altan, said : "The sale of Altan is another very significant milestone for Malin in our continuing strategy to deliver maximum value to shareholders. This transaction, which comes only two months after the completion of the sale of Kymab to Sanofi, further demonstrates our commitment to catalysing investment realisation opportunities as our investee companies reach optimal value inflection points. Having already repaid our EUR45 million of EIB debt in full and with current cash on hand of approximately EUR60 million, we expect the additional capital from the sale of Altan to enable a significant capital return to shareholders before the end of 2021."
