Regulatory News:

Adocia (Euronext Paris : FR0011184241 – ADOC) (Paris:ADOC), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of therapeutic solutions for the treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases, announced today the completion of the sale of its laboratory and office complex located in Lyon, France to a specialized investor. This financial transaction results in the sale of the building for more than 20 million euros and the signature of a long-term lease.

“ We are very pleased to have significantly strengthened our financial resources without diluting our shareholders," said Gérard Soula, Chairman and CEO of Adocia. "We expect 2022 to be a pivotal year for Adocia with important milestones in our major programs.”

The Company is selling its headquarter - acquired in 2016 - to a well-known and AMF1 approved Asset Management Company with a portfolio exceeding €1.4 billion.

Concomitantly to the sale, the parties signed a lease allowing Adocia to continue to occupy the building over the long term. The lease is for a firm term of 12 years, with an option to renew for nine additional years.

"Thanks to this real estate transaction, we have an additional 19 million euros of cash while reducing our debt. This is being done without significant additional operating costs and without any impact on operations and work of our teams," added Valérie Danaguezian, Chief Financial Officer of Adocia.

As a result of this transaction, the rent due by the Company will be of a similar amount and will replace the repayment of the debts that were contracted to finance the purchase of the building in 2016, and which have been fully repaid today as part of the sale transaction.
