Amphion Partner Company, Motif Bio, Announces Positive Topline Results for iclaprim in the REVIVE-2 Phase 3 Study

London and New York, 5 October 2017 - Amphion Innovations plc (AIM: AMP), the developer of medical, life science, and technology businesses, comments on Partner Company Motif Bio plc (“Motif”, AIM: MTFB, NASDAQ: MTFB) following positive topline results from its REVIVE-2 trial, a global Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating Motif’s lead investigational drug candidate iclaprim in patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI), as announced 4 October 2017.

Amphion owns 14.1% of Motif Bio’s issued share capital.

Richard Morgan, CEO of Amphion Innovations commented: “We are pleased that Motif Bio’s lead antibiotic, iclaprim, has now successfully completed both of its Phase III trials. Yesterday, Motif Bio announced the topline data for REVIVE-2, the second of the two trials, which showed that iclaprim achieved the primary endpoint of non-inferiority compared to vancomycin, the current standard of care, at the early time point (ETP), and also achieved non-inferiority at the test of cure endpoint, 7 to 14 days after study drug discontinuation. Combined with the positive topline data for REVIVE-1, as announced 18 April 2017, Motif Bio is on track to submit a New Drug Application to the US FDA for iclaprim in the first quarter of 2018.  Amphion owns 14.1% of Motif Bio, and we continue to believe that Motif Bio is not fully valued compared to other comparable antibiotic companies at the same stage of development.”
