BOSTON, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GreenLight Biosciences (Nasdaq: GRNA) (“GreenLight” or the “Company”), a public benefit corporation striving to deliver on the full potential of RNA to address some of the world’s toughest problems in human health and agriculture, today, confirmed that it has received a non-binding indication of interest from Fall Line Endurance Fund, L.P. (“Fall Line”) to acquire all of the outstanding capital stock of the Company for $0.60 per share in cash (the “Proposed Transaction”).

No assurance can be given that a definitive transaction with respect to Fall Line’s indication of interest or any other potential transaction will eventually be consummated. GreenLight does not intend to make further announcements about any of the various alternatives that are being evaluated unless and until GreenLight’s Board of Directors and/or the Special Committee has approved a specific transaction or otherwise determines that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
