Sales Agreement
On September 9, 2022, Immunocore Holdings plc (the “Company”) entered into an Open Market Sale AgreementSM (the “Sales Agreement”) with Jefferies LLC (“Jefferies”), pursuant to which the Company may issue and sell American Depositary Shares, each representing one ordinary share, nominal value £0.002 per share, in the capital of the Company, having an aggregate offering price of up to $250,000,000 (the “ADSs”), from time to time, in an at-the-market offering pursuant to which Jefferies will act as sales agent and/or principal.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Sales Agreement, Jefferies has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts, consistent with its normal sales and trading practices, to sell all of the ADSs so designated by the Company with respect to which Jefferies has agreed to act as sales agent subject to, and in accordance with the information specified in, a written notice from the Company. The sales, if any, of the ADSs under the Sales Agreement, will be made (i) in privately negotiated transactions with the consent of the Company or (ii) by any other method permitted by law deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including block transactions, sales made directly on the Principal Market (as defined in the Sales Agreement) or sales made into any other existing trading market of the ADSs. The Sales Agreement provides that the commission payable to Jefferies for sales of the ADSs with respect to which Jefferies acts as sales agent shall be up to 3.0% of the gross sales price for such ADSs sold pursuant to the Sales Agreement.
The Sales Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and indemnification and contribution provisions under which the Company and Jefferies have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. Jefferies and the Company have the right, by giving written notice as specified in the Sales Agreement, to terminate the Sales Agreement.
The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
