Bavarian Nordic Announces the Sale of Priority Review Voucher

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 17, 2019 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA, OTC: BVNRY) today announced that it has entered an agreement to sell its Priority Review Voucher (PRV) for a total cash consideration of USD 95 million. The buyer remains undisclosed.

Bavarian Nordic was awarded the PRV in September 2019 upon approval of JYNNEOS® (MVA-BN) for prevention of smallpox and monkeypox by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A PRV entitles the holder to FDA priority review of a single New Drug Application or Biologics License Application, which reduces the target review time and may potentially lead to an expedited approval.

The transaction remains subject to customary closing conditions, including anti-trust review, which is expected to occur early in 2020. Hence, the sale does not impact the company’s guidance or financial position in 2019.

Jefferies International Limited acted as exclusive financial advisor to Bavarian Nordic on this transaction.

“In line with our plans, we are pleased to announce the sale of the PRV, which provides an important source of capital to support our growth strategy over the next years, as we continue to expand our manufacturing facility and commercial organization for our growing portfolio of acquired and own developed vaccines,” said Henrik Juuel, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Bavarian Nordic.
