Rights Issue 2023
ViroGates needs additional capital to invest in the three initiatives:
1) Promote new application areas and continue reimbursement processes in Europe
Push the application of suPAR within guiding treatment in sepsis patients to previous, existing, and new hospital customers, building upon the results from the study of the Hellenic Sepsis Group, cf. company announcement no. 15 of 22 September 2023. Pursue already established processes for reimbursement in selected key markets. Current efforts are focusing on reimbursement schemes in Germany and France in the outpatient and acute care segment, respectively.
2) Obtain marketing approval and initiate expansion to the US
Continue collaboration with Sobi on submitting a 510k application (marketing authorization) for emergency department use of suPARnostic® before licensed roll-out. Approach strategic partner in entering the US market.
3) Approach the health clinics and longevity segment
Develop new marketing approach and sales channels for the use of suPARnostic® in the longevity field. Establish connections to KOLs within the area. This is a segment new to ViroGates, and there is already significant interest in suPARnostic® from health clinics globally.

ViroGates has achieved extensive scientific evidence, developed several applications of the suPARnostic® products, and experienced revenue growth since the IPO in 2018. However, the COVID-19 pandemic challenged the core business, as it periodically limited the use of suPARnostic® to a single application, namely in patients with a suspected COVID-19 infection, at the hospitals. Despite the pandemic also allowing for entry into new hospitals, it has proven more difficult than expected to convert these hospitals into the use of suPARnostic® for general triaging in acute care as COVID-19 wore off, variants got milder, and fewer patients were hospitalized. These challenges have negatively impacted revenue for the first nine months of 2023, and it has been necessary to restart many customer activities in the acute care segment. ViroGates needs to ensure sufficient runway to continue the efforts toward realizing the full potential of the acute care segment, partly through the promotion of new application areas in acute care (sepsis patients) and the continuing work on reimbursement in key markets. Furthermore, ViroGates has identified two additional initiatives with significant potential that can boost growth.
Offering and timeline
ViroGates is offering new shares for a maximum of DKK 15 million to continue efforts in the acute care segment as well as promote the two additional growth initiatives, as described.
