WntResearch AB: The subscription price for the exercise of warrants of series 2020/2021 in WntResearch AB has been set at SEK 0.81 per share

During the second quarter of 2020, WntResearch AB ("WntResearch" or the "Company") carried out a rights issue of so-called units in which one (1) unit consisted of two (2) newly issued shares and one (1) warrant, issued free of charge. Those who subscribed for units during the subscription period from and including April 24, 2020 to and including May 8, 2020 thus received one (1) warrant of series 2020/2021 free of charge, per subscribed unit in the rights issue. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share in the Company. The exercise price for the warrants corresponds to 70 percent of the volume-weighted average price of the Company's share during the period from and including January 22, 2021 to and including February 4, 2021, but not lower than the share's quota value and a maximum of SEK 3.00 per share. The volume-weighted average price paid during the measurement period amounted to approximately SEK 1.16 and thus the strike price is set at SEK 0.81 per share.

About WntResearch
WntResearch is a research and development company in oncology that develops new treatments intended to inhibit metastasis formation in cancers. The Company focuses on WNT5A, a protein that suppresses the metastatic process in the body; the vision is for cancer patients to no longer have to endure metastasis. Today, one in every three people will develop cancer during their lifetimes, and 90 percent of all cancer-related deaths are caused by metastases. Even though cancer treatment has become more effective, there are no effective methods to prevent the formation of metastasis. The drug candidate Foxy-5 mimics WNT5A' s ability to reduce the mobility and thus the spread of cancer cells. Foxy-5 has demonstrated a good safety profile with few adverse effects in two clinical phase I studies. An ongoing clinical phase II study is currently being conducted on patients with colon cancer with the Company's drug candidate Foxy-5. According to the Company's assessment, Foxy-5 is the only drug candidate of its kind, with a unique mode of action in an area where other drug or treatment options are lacking. WntResearch's share is listed on Spotlight Stock Market. For more information, please visit:
