GENEVA, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / August 24, 2022 / RELIEF THERAPEUTICS Holding SA (SIX:RLF)(OTCQB:RLFTF)(OTCQB:RLFTY) ("Relief"), today announced today that it has filed a Registration Statement on Form F-1 under the Securities Act of 1933 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") relating to a proposed offering of its ordinary shares in the form of American Depositary Shares ("ADSs"). The number of ADSs to be offered, the plan for the distribution of the ADSs, and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined. Relief plans to apply to list its ADSs on the NASDAQ stock market under the symbol "RLFT", although there can be no assurance that it will be successful in doing so. There can be no assurance as to whether or when the offering may be completed, or as to the actual size or terms of the offering. The offering, if made, will only be made by means of an effective prospectus.
Relief's ADS program complements its existing primary listing of its ordinary shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange. Relief's ordinary shares are listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the symbol "RLF" and are quoted in the U.S. on the OTCQB market under the symbol "RLFTF." Relief's ADSs, which each represent one-hundred and fifty (150) of Relief's ordinary shares, are presently quoted in the U.S. over-the-counter market under the trading symbol "RLFTY."
A registration statement on Form F-1 related to the proposed sale of Relief's ADSs has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy these securities be accepted, prior to the time when the registration statement becomes effective.
This press release is not intended to and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States or any other jurisdiction, nor shall there be any offer or sale of securities in the United States or any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful unless registered and/or qualified under applicable securities laws. This press release does not constitute a prospectus according to art. 35 of the Swiss Financial Services Act dated 15 June 2018, as amended ("FinSA"), or art. 27 et seqq. of the SIX Swiss Exchange Listing Rules. There is no intention or permission to publicly offer, solicit, sell or advertise, directly or indirectly, any securities of Relief in or into Switzerland within the meaning of FinSA. Further, the ADSs have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), and no public offering of securities shall be made in the United States except by means of a prospectus meeting made available by Relief that contains detailed information about Relief and its management, as well as financial statements meeting the requirements of the Act.
