The Offering will be made by placing on the market 1,744,187 new shares to be issued, which may be increased to 2,005,815 new shares in the event of full exercise of the extension clause and 300,872 additional new shares in the event of full exercise of the overallotment option, i.e. a maximum of 2,306,687 shares offered in the event of full exercise of the extension clause and the overallotment option. ? GROSS TRANSACTION AMOUNT

Approximately EUR30 million, which may be increased to approximately EUR34.5 million in the event of full exercise of the extension clause and approximately EUR39.7 million in the event of full exercise of both the extension clause and the overallotment option (based on the midpoint of the indicative price range of the Offering, i.e. EUR17.20). ?

STRUCTURE OF THE OFFERING

The offered shares will be distributed as part of a global offering (the "Offering"), comprising:

-- An offering to the public in France in the form of an open-price offering, mainly intended for privateindividuals (the "Open-Price Offering" or "OPO"), where:? the orders will be broken down according to the number of shares requested: A1 order fraction (from 1share up to 250 shares) and A2 order fraction (over 250 shares); ? the A1 order fractions will receive preferential treatment relative to the A2 order fractions in theevent that all orders cannot not be entirely satisfied.

-- A global placement mainly intended for institutional investors (the "Global Placement"), comprising:? a placement in France; ? an international private placement in certain countries, excluding in particular the United States ofAmerica, Japan, Canada and Australia; and ? a private placement in the United States for a limited number of qualified institutional buyers asdefined in Rule 144A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (the "Securities Act"), in the context ofthe exemption of private placements from the registration provisions pursuant to Article 4(a)(2) of theSecurities Act.

If permitted by the request expressed under the OPO, the number of shares allocated in response to orders issued under the OPO will be at least equal to 10% of the number of shares offered under the Offering (before any exercise of the extension clause and the overallotment option). ? LOCK-UP COMMITMENTS AND CONSERVATION

Company lock-up agreement: 180 calendar days following the settlement/delivery date of the Offering, subject to certain exceptions.

Commitment by the Company's shareholders to hold on to their shares: all shareholders and holders of securities giving access to the Company's share capital shall make a commitment to the joint bookrunners to conserve the shares they hold on the date on which the Offering Price is set for a period of 270 calendar days following the settlement-delivery date of the Offering, subject to certain usual exceptions. ? SUBSCRIPTION COMMITMENTS

FPCI InnoBio 2, represented by Bpifrance Investissement, FCPI Arbevel Life Sciences Crossover I, represented by Financière Arbevel, and FCPI Supernova 2, represented by Supernova Invest, have each committed to place a subscription order in the order book for a maximum amount of EUR3.00 million, EUR2.35 million and EUR1.50 million respectively. In addition, Guerbet, a French company with international expertise in medical imaging (diagnostic and interventional) and listed on Euronext Paris, has made a commitment to place an order of EUR3.00 million in the order book. These orders, which therefore represent 32.8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (if the Offering is 100% subscribed and excluding the exercise of the extension clause and the overallotment option) are intended to be served in priority and in their entirety, subject to reduction in accordance with usual allocation principles (mainly if the subscriptions received are way over the number of shares offered).

Guerbet's investment comes as both companies have started to work together on artificial intelligence for clinical trials on pancreatic cancer and glioblastoma, as developed by the Company. Last July, the Company and Guerbet tendered together for State funding (as an Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI)) in this area. Regardless of the (limited) chances of obtaining such funding, the agreement signed on 23 September 2021 on Guerbet's subscription commitment suggests that the two companies will discuss the scope of collaboration work on the AGuIX platform and will subsequently negotiate a collaboration agreement to that effect in good faith. ?
