Termination of Sales Agreement

On January 6, 2023, VectivBio Holding AG (the “Company”) notified SVB Securities LLC (“SVB Securities”) of its decision to terminate the Sales Agreement, dated as of May 4, 2022, between the Company and SVB Securities (the “Sales Agreement”), effective as of January 16, 2023 (the “Termination Date”). The Sales Agreement provided for the offer and sale of the Company’s ordinary shares with a nominal value of CHF 0.05 per share (the “Ordinary Shares”), from time to time through SVB Securities as its sales agent, subject to the maximum aggregate dollar amount registered pursuant to the applicable prospectus supplement (the “ATM Prospectus”). Sales of Ordinary Shares through SVB Securities were to be made by any 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, block transactions and sales made directly on the Nasdaq Global Market or sales made on or through any other existing trading market for the Ordinary Shares. As previously disclosed on October 13, 2022, the Company suspended the ATM Prospectus on October 12, 2022. As of January 10, 2023, the Company had not issued and sold any Ordinary Shares under 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 was filed as Exhibit 1.2 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form F-3 (333-264653), which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 4, 2022.
