Turnkey Scale-up Agreement

On July 17, 2023, MediWound Ltd. (the Company”) signed a turnkey scale-up agreement (the “Scale-up Agreement”) with Biopharmax Group Ltd.  This strategic agreement is designed to bolster our manufacturing infrastructure to support our long-term growth trajectory.  The objective of this agreement is to establish, commission, and validate a cutting-edge, sterile, and GMP-compliant manufacturing facility. The venture aims to increase our production capacity significantly, projected to expand to six times the current capacity, aligning with our strategic plan to meet the escalating global demand for NexoBrid®.

The new facility, equipped with fully operational clean rooms, will be exclusively designed for NexoBrid production. It will comply with stringent regulations from the GMP, FDA, EMA, Israeli Ministry of Health, and relevant Israeli regulatory bodies. An estimated $12 million will be invested in the project, set for completion by mid-2024, with full-scale manufacturing expected to commence in 2025.

The Scale-up Agreement encompasses various standard provisions, including those related to reporting, compliance, guarantees, representations, liability, insurance, confidentiality, and ownership. The foregoing description of the Scale-up Agreement for New Facility does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s next Annual Report on Form 20-F.

Long-term Lease Agreement

Alongside entering the Scale-up Agreement, we have also secured a new lease agreement (the Lease Agreement”) with the current property owner. This agreement allows us to continue the utilization of our existing facilities and the planned manufacturing site. This property, located in Yavne, Israel, serves as the base for our administrative headquarters, research and development laboratories, and manufacturing plant. The duration of the lease extends until 2035, with an option for a further three-year extension until 2038.

The property, measuring approximately 32,500 square feet, will encompass the new manufacturing facility. As per the Lease Agreement, our annual rent is set at approximately $625,000. This rent is indexed to the Israeli Consumer Price Index and will see a staged increase of 6% every three years.

The foregoing description of the Lease Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Lease Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s next Annual Report on Form 20-F.
