CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, France, September 30, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
THERADIAG (ISIN: FR0004197747, Ticker: ALTER) (Paris:ALTER), a company specializing in in vitro diagnostics and Theranostics, announces the appointment of Crowe HAF by the Company's Board of Directors as independent expert within the framework of the proposed voluntary public tender offer filed by Biosynex.
On September 23, 2022, Biosynex filed with the Autorité des marchés financiers (the "AMF") a proposed voluntary cash tender offer for the shares of the Company that it does not own, at a price of EUR 2.30 per share (the "Offer").
As THERADIAG's Board of Directors is composed of only two independent members, it was not possible to set up an ad hoc committee as referred to in III of Article 261-1 of the AMF's General Regulations. Within this framework, pursuant to Articles 261-1, I 1° and 4° and 261-1-1 of the AMF's General Regulations, and subject to the absence of opposition from the AMF, THERADIAG's Board of Directors met and appointed Crowe HAF, represented by Mr. Olivier Grivillers and Mr. Maxime Hazim, as independent expert in charge of drawing up a report on the fairness of the financial conditions of the Offer. As the AMF did not object to this appointment, it has now become effective.
Mr. Jacques Azancot, an independent director of the Company, will monitor the work of the independent expert in accordance with the applicable regulations.
The Board of Directors of THERADIAG will meet again to issue a reasoned opinion on the interest of the Offer and its consequences for THERADIAG, its shareholders and its employees, after having taken note of the report of the independent expert.
The independent expert's report and the reasoned opinion of THERADIAG's Board of Directors will be included in the draft note in response that will be prepared and submitted to the AMF for review.
