Paris, France, April 8, 2019 NANOBIOTIX (the “Company”) (Euronext: NANO – ISIN: FR0011341205), a clinical-stage nanomedicine company pioneering new approaches to the treatment of cancer, intends to issue up to 2,566,666 new ordinary shares of a nominal value of €0.03 (“New Shares”), representing approximately 13.07% of the Company’s issued ordinary share capital, by means of an accelerated bookbuild offering reserved to a specific class of investors (the “Offering”).

The New Shares will be issued in the Offering without shareholders’ pre-emptive rights pursuant to the 30th resolution of the combined ordinary and extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Company held on May 23, 2018 and in accordance with Article L. 225-138 of the French Commercial Code, after the decision of the Company's executive board dated today, following the approval of the Company's supervisory board on March 27, 2019. The Offering will be open only to investment funds and companies investing on a regular basis, or having invested more than €5 million over the 36 month-period preceding the Offering, in “small cap” or “mid cap” emerging growth companies in the healthcare or biotechnology industry (“Eligible Investors”).

The Offering will commence immediately and is expected to end before markets open on the regulated market of Euronext Paris tomorrow, subject to acceleration or extension. The Company will announce the results of the Offering as soon as practicable thereafter in a subsequent press release. Settlement of the Offering and the admission of the New Shares to trading on Euronext Paris are expected to occur on or about April 11, 2019.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to accelerate its development, with a main focus on preparing for the launch of its Phase II/III clinical trial in Head and Neck cancers in the United States.

Among Eligible Investors, the Offering is open to institutional investors (i) in France and elsewhere outside the United States in reliance on the exemption from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) provided by Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act and (ii) in the United States in reliance on the exemption from registration under the Securities Act provided by Section 4(a)(2) thereunder.

After giving effect to the Offering, the number of ordinary shares that will have been issued by the Company over the last 12 months will represent less than 20% of the current share capital of the Company. Therefore, a prospectus approved by the French financial markets authority (Autorité des marchés financiers – the “AMF”) is not required.

Jefferies International Limited (“Jefferies”) is acting as Sole Bookrunner for the Offering.

In connection with the Offering, the Company has entered into a lock-up agreement, which restricts the issuance of additional ordinary shares ending  90 days after settlement and delivery of the New Shares, subject to customary exceptions as well as the ability to request a waiver from the Sole Bookrunner (including to permit a potential U.S. initial public offering, which the Company does not expect to occur within 30 days post admission of the New Shares). The Company’s management board members and supervisory board members are also subject to a lock-up until June 30, 2019, subject to customary exceptions and the ability to request a waiver from the Sole Bookrunner.
