Termination of discussions with Yesod Bio-Sciences Limited (“Yesod”)

 

Alderley Park, 28 February 2020 Redx Pharma (AIM: REDX), the drug discovery and development company focused on cancer and fibrosis notes the announcement made earlier this afternoon by Yesod that it does not intend to make an offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Redx pursuant to Rule 2.7 of the Code.

The Board of Redx decided, after careful consideration, including extensive discussion with Moulton Goodies Limited, the Company’s largest shareholder, that the possible offer from Yesod substantially undervalued the Company and its assets.
