Relief Therapeutics Files Amendment No. 1 to its Registration Statement on Form F-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
Geneva, Switzerland, November 16, 2022 – RELIEF THERAPEUTICS Holding SA (SIX: RLF, OTCQB: RLFTF, RLFTD) (“Relief”), announced today that it has filed Amendment No. 1 to its Registration Statement on Form F-1 under the Securities Act of 1933 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC“) relating to a proposed offering of its ordinary shares in the form of American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”). The number of ADSs to be offered, the plan for the distribution of the ADSs, and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined. Relief plans to apply to list its ADSs on the NASDAQ stock market under the symbol “RLFT”. The offering, if made, will only be made by means of an effective prospectus.
Relief is a Swiss, commercial-stage, biopharmaceutical company focused on identification, development and commercialization of novel, patent protected products intended for the treatment of rare and ultra-rare diseases including metabolic disorders, pulmonary diseases, and connective tissue disorders. Relief’s diversified pipeline consists of assets that have the potential to effectively address significant unmet medical needs, including PKU GOLIKE®, engineered with the proprietary Physiomimic technology, which is the first prolonged-release amino acid product commercialized for the dietary management of phenylketonuria (“PKU”). Relief has a Collaboration and License Agreement with Acer Therapeutics for the worldwide development and commercialization of ACER-001 (sodium phenylbutyrate) for the treatment of various inborn errors of metabolism, including Urea Cycle Disorders (“UCDs”) and Maple Syrup Urine Disease (“MSUD”). Relief also continues to develop aviptadil for several rare pulmonary indications. Further, Relief is in clinical development for APR-TD011, a differentiated acid oxidizing solution of hypochlorous acid intended for the treatment of epidermolysis bullosa (“EB”), a group of rare, genetic, life-threatening connective tissue disorders; APR-TD011 has been granted Orphan Drug Designation by the FDA. Finally, Relief is commercializing several legacy products via licensing and distribution partners.
RELIEF THERAPEUTICS Holding SA is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the symbol RLF and quoted in the U.S. on OTCQB under the symbols RLFTF and RLFTD.
