Evaxion Biotech A/S (EVAX) (“Evaxion” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company specializing in the development of AI-powered immunotherapies, announced today that it has entered into a committed equity purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), for the issuance and sale, from time to time, of up to $40 million of its American Depositary Shares (the “ADSs”), each of which represents one ordinary share, DKK 1 nominal value, of the Company (the “Ordinary Shares”).

Under the terms of the Agreement, Evaxion has the right, at its sole discretion, but not the obligation, to sell to LPC up to $40 million of its ADSs over the 36-month term of the Agreement, subject to certain conditions.

Lars Wegner, CEO of Evaxion, said: “We are pleased to conclude this Agreement with Lincoln Park Capital, securing access to $40 million from a widely respected investor in the biotech industry and further strengthening Evaxion’s financial position during a period of market uncertainty. This equity facility will contribute to the progression of our exciting portfolio of assets, including our personalized cancer medicines, developed in programs EVX-01 and EVX-02, both of which are currently in Phase 2 clinical development, according to plan. This gives us momentum to reach our value-creating, upcoming clinical milestones. Importantly, it also maintains Evaxion’s flexibility in deciding if and when to exercise the option to sell, so we can continue to choose the optimum development path for the Company.”

Evaxion had cash and cash equivalents of $31.4 million at the end of the first quarter of 2022 and expects its cash position, without proceeds from the Agreement, to be sufficient to fund operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements through at least the next 12 months.

There are no upper limits to the price LPC may pay to purchase the ADSs, and the purchase price will be based on the prevailing market prices of the ADSs at the time of each sale to LPC. Evaxion controls the timing and amount of any future sales of its ADSs to LPC. The Company may terminate the Agreement at any time, in its sole discretion, without any additional cost or penalty. In consideration for entering into the Agreement, LPC received 428,572 Ordinary Shares represented by ADSs from the Company.
