Safe group announces suspension of financing agreement with Alpha Blue Ocean

Éragny-sur-Oise, Fleurieux-sur-l’Arbresle, July 31st, 2023 – Safe (FR001400F1V2 – ALSAF), a company specializing in the design, manufacture and marketing of ready-to-use technologies for back surgery, particularly safe for spinal fractures treated in emergency (the “Company”) announces the suspension of its financing contract.

In accordance with the terms of the financing agreement with ABO published on March 14, 2023, the drawdown of the financing tranches is suspended in view of the application of the following condition:

“The closing price of SAFE shares on Euronext Growth Paris must have been greater than one hundred and thirty percent (130%) of the par value of SAFE shares for at least sixty (60) consecutive trading days prior to the date of dispatch of the drawdown request (or, if this was not the case, the Company’s share capital was reduced during this period by means of a reduction in the par value of SAFE shares)”.

As a result of this suspension, and despite the steps taken by SAFE to find new sources of financing and reduce its operating expenses and financing requirements, the company’s Board of Directors, at a meeting held today, decided to initiate proceedings with the Pontoise Commercial Court for the opening of collective proceedings in order to restructure its debt situation and pay off its liabilities.

A suspension of trading was requested from Euronext on July 28 while this press release was being issued. Today, the company has applied to Euronext to re-list its shares.
