DBP International: Out-licensing to YRRO rights for an international patent for the use of ferrous succinate

Double Bond Pharmaceuticals AB (publ) ("DBP") has entered into an agreement with YRRO Ltd ("YRRO") to sell the license for use of its intellectual properties including international patent application for active substance ferrous succinate, marketed as "Inofer", in the USA, Japan, China and the EU (excluding the Nordic countries).

Clinical trial results undertaken by DBP indicate that ferrous succinate ("Inofer") markedly and significantly improved iron uptake, iron saturation, and iron stores in patients with heart failure and iron deficiency.

Inofer is a low-cost oral alternative to a widely sold product called FerInject (which is, as its name indicates, administered intravenously). In 2020, FerInject reported global net sales of US$550 million.

In consideration of the acquisition of the license, shareholders of DBP will receive a 20% shareholding in YRRO via the issuance of new shares. YRRO subsequently intends to incorporate a new, wholly-owned subsidiary that will own its entire portfolio of dietary supplements and the Inofer license, which will proceed to apply for a public listing on either the Nasdaq in Stockholm or Euronext in Oslo.
