VEXIM Secures a Contingent Equity Line PACEO® with SOCIETE GENERALE Business Wire TOULOUSE, France -- October 30, 2013 Regulatory News : Vexim S. A. (Paris:ALVXM) (FR0011072602 - ALVXM), a medical device company specialized in minimally-invasive solutions for the treatment of vertebral fractures, announces that it has negotiated a contingent equity line with SOCIETE GENERALE, exercisable by tranches at VEXIM’s discretion, as authorized by the Shareholders’ Meeting of June 18, 2013. This optional equity financing will allow VEXIM, to broaden its financial flexibility in order to continue its strong commercial development, while diversifying its financial tools and minimizing dilution for its shareholders. At VEXIM’s request, SOCIETE GENERALE is committed to subscribe to successive capital increases over the next 24 months, within the global limit of 450,000 shares, being 9.8% of the 4,590,645 shares currently outstanding. Should the entire contingent equity line be drawn down by the emission of 450000 new shares, a shareholder who currently owns 1% of the company’s share capital would see his or her share ownership reduced to 0.91%. For each emission of shares, the issue price will depend on the average market share price discounted by no more than 8%. This discount will enable SOCIETE GENERALE, as a financial intermediary with no intention of remaining shareholder in the company, to underwrite the subscription, regardless of capital market volatility. VEXIM has no minimum drawdown obligation, and only intends to use this facility if market conditions allow financing that it is in the best interest of both the Company and its shareholders. *** Next press release: *2013 annual sales: January 2014 *2013 annual results: March 2014 About Vexim, the innovative back microsurgery specialist Based in Balma, near Toulouse (France), Vexim is a medical device company created in February 2006.
