Motif Bio plc, the clinical stage biopharmaceutical company specialising in developing novel antibiotics, announces that it has amended the terms of its consultancy agreement with Amphion Innovations plc.


On April 1, 2015, the Group entered into a consultancy agreement with Amphion Innovations plc for the services of Robert Bertoldi, an employee of Amphion Innovations plc. The consideration for his services was US $5,000 per month. On November 1, 2015, the consideration was increased to US $180,000 per annum. On July 1, 2016, the consideration decreased to US $75,000. Motif has now increased the consideration to US $125,000 to better reflect Robert Bertoldi’s time commitment to Motif.


The amendment to the consultancy agreement constitutes a related party transaction under AIM Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies as Amphion Innovations plc is a substantial shareholder of Motif. With the exception of Robert Bertoldi and Richard Morgan, the directors of the Company, having consulted with the Company’s nominated adviser, Peel Hunt LLP, consider that the increase in consideration under the consultancy agreement is fair and reasonable insofar as its shareholders are concerned.
