Inflexion points

Company is in talks to extend loan facility currently of US$2.8mln

Loan facility is secured against stakes in Motif Bio and Polarean

Shares pledged were worth US$5.3mln in August

Amphion said it is working hard to try and replace or amend the loan facility to extend the repayment date past 30 September 2019 to ensure it does not have to sell more shares than entirely necessary. 

"We are excited by and steadfastly believe in the future prospects of Polarean and its important technology," it added.

At 0.15p Amphion has a market cap of £310,000

Total debts in its last statement were said to be US$30.3mln
