ABINGDON, OXFORDSHIRE / ACCESSWIRE / September 14, 2022 / Midatech Pharma (AIM:MTPH)(Nasdaq:MTP), an R&D biotechnology company focused on improving the bio-delivery and biodistribution of medicines, announces a ratio change on its American Depositary Receipts (“ADR”) from one (1) ADR representing five (5) ordinary shares, to the new ratio of one (1) ADR representing twenty-five (25) ordinary shares (the “Ratio Change”). The effective date of the Ratio Change is expected to be 26 September 2022.
Pursuant to the Ratio Change, effective 26 September 2022, ADR holders will be required on a mandatory basis to surrender their ADRs for cancellation and exchange to receive one (1) new ADR (New CUSIP: 59564R500) for every five (5) old ADRs (Old CUSIP: 59564R203). No fractional ADRs will be allocated. The aggregate fractions, if any, will be sold and the net proceeds will be distributed to the entitled ADR holder. The Company’s Depositary, The Bank of New York Mellon, will contact ADR holders and arrange for the exchange of their existing ADRs for new ADRs.
For ADR holders, the Ratio Change will have the same effect as a one-for-five reverse ADR split. The ordinary shares of Midatech will not be affected by this change.
The Ratio Change is aimed to bring the price of the Company’s ADRs into compliance with the Nasdaq $1.00 minimum bid price per share requirement, though Midatech can give no assurance that the Ratio Change will be effective in achieving this goal.

About Midatech Pharma PLC
Midatech Pharma PLC (dual listed on LSE AIM:MTPH; and NASDAQ:MTP) is a drug delivery technology company focused on improving the bio-delivery and bio-distribution of medicines. The Company combines approved and development medications with its proprietary and innovative drug delivery technologies to provide compelling products that have the potential to powerfully impact the lives of patients.
The Company has developed three in-house technology platforms, each with its own unique mechanism to improve delivery of medications to sites of disease. All of the Company’s technologies have successfully entered human use in the clinic, providing important validation of the potential for each platform:
· Q-Sphera™ platform: a disruptive micro-technology used for sustained release to prolong and control the release of therapeutics over an extended period of time (from weeks to months).
· MidaSolve™ platform: an innovative nanotechnology used to dissolve insoluble drugs so that they can be administered in liquid form directly and locally into tumours.
· MidaCore™ platform: a leading-edge nanotechnology used for targeting medications to sites of disease.
The platform nature of the technologies offers the potential to develop multiple drug assets rather than being reliant on a limited number of programmes. Midatech’s technologies are supported by 36 patent families including 120 granted patents and an additional 70 patent applications. Midatech’s headquarters and R&D facility is in Cardiff, UK.
