About Nyxoah

Nyxoah’s lead solution is the Genio® system, a patient-centered, leadless and battery-free hypoglossal neurostimulation therapy for OSA, the world’s most common sleep disordered breathing condition that is associated with increased mortality risk and cardiovascular comorbidities.

Additional information
The following information is provided pursuant to Article 7:97 of the Belgian Companies and Associations Code. Prior to the launch of the offering, Robert Taub, who is the chairman of the board of directors, had expressed an interest to participate in the offering and purchase (either directly or indirectly through entities controlled/managed by him or otherwise) offered shares, it being understood that the number of offered shares allocated to Robert Taub (if any) and the applicable price would depend on the outcome of the offering process.

As Robert Taub qualifies as a related party of the Company, the board of directors applied the related parties procedure of Article 7:97 of the Belgian Companies and Associations Code in connection with the potential participation of Robert Taub (either directly or indirectly through entities controlled/managed by him or otherwise) to the offering. Within the context of the aforementioned procedure, prior to resolving on the offering, a committee of three independent directors of the Company (the “Committee”) issued an advice to the board of directors in which the Committee assessed the participation of Robert Taub in the offering. In its advice to the board of directors, the Committee concluded the following: “Based on the information provided, the Committee considers that the proposed transaction is in line with the strategy pursued by the Company, will be done on market terms, and is unlikely to lead to disadvantages for the Company and its shareholders (in terms of dilution) that are not sufficiently compensated by the advantages that the transaction offers the Company”.

When approving the offering, the Company’s board of directors did not deviate from the Committee’s advice. The Company’s statutory auditor’s assessment of the Committee’s advice and the minutes of the meeting of the Company’s board of directors, is as follows: “Based on our limited review performed in accordance with ISRE 2410 “ Review of interim financial information performed by the independent auditor of the entity” and the applicable standards of the “Institut des Réviseurs d’Entreprises/Instituut der Bedrijfsrevisoren”, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the financial and accounting data contained in the minutes of the board of directors’ meeting of May 22, 2024 and in the advice of the committee of independent directors in accordance with article 7:97 of the Companies and Associations Code would contain material inconsistencies with the information available to us in the course of our engagement. However, we do not express an opinion on the value of the transaction or on the appropriateness of the decision of the board of directors”.
