Aciex shareholders will receive an upfront payment of $65 million entirely in the form of 20,627,024 newly issued Nicox shares, plus contingent value rights (CVRs) giving rights to Nicox shares based on the potential US FDA approval(s) of AC-170 and of two additional undisclosed products within a pre-determined period.
