Cytos Biotechnology Ltd (“Cytos”) today announced that the convertible bond restructuring has been completed with effect as of May 8, 2015. As a result, 77'490'000 shares have been issued on top of the 30'525'276 shares already issued and outstanding. Hence, the total number of shares issued and outstanding now amounts to 108'015'276 shares. All newly issued shares were originally scheduled to be free for trading starting Monday, May 11, 2015 and are equal to those already issued and listed at the SIX Swiss Exchange. However, due to a mistake by SIS AG, certain shares were already possible to trade on May 8, 2015 as per message below.

As announced previously, all claims from the convertible loan note holders are eliminated upon the bonds conversion into equity. As a result, Cytos is free of any debt going forward with immediate effect.
