Item 8.01. Other Events.

On November 6, 2023, following OpGen, Inc.’s (the “Company”) unsuccessful efforts to sell the businesses or assets of its wholly owned subsidiaries Curetis GmbH (“Curetis”) and Ares Genetics GmbH (“Ares Genetics”) or to access additional capital to continue their operations, Curetis filed a petition for bankruptcy protection with the district court of Stuttgart, Germany, and Ares Genetics filed a petition for bankruptcy protection with the commercial court in Vienna, Austria, Reference Number 38 S 175/23x. The bankruptcy proceedings of Curetis and Ares Genetics will be adjudicated under the bankruptcy laws of Germany and Austria, respectively. Dr. Katharina Widhalm-Budak has been appointed insolvency administrator by the Vienna court in Ares Genetics’ bankruptcy proceeding. The district court of Stuttgart will appoint an insolvency administrator for Curetis’ bankruptcy proceeding. The insolvency administrators will assume control over the assets and liabilities of Curetis and Ares Genetics, respectively, which effectively eliminates the authority and power of the Company and its officers to act on behalf of the subsidiaries. In the event the preservation and sale of the business in connection with the bankruptcy proceedings is unsuccessful, the assets of Curetis and Ares Genetics would be liquidated and claims paid in accordance with the bankruptcy laws of the applicable jurisdiction. Neither Curetis, Ares Genetics nor the Company undertake any obligation to make any further public announcement with respect to the documents filed with the applicable bankruptcy courts or the matters referred to therein.
