company has raised NOK 250 million in an oversubscribed pre-IPO financing round
syndicated by existing investors Hadean Ventures, Geveran, RADFORSK Investeringsstiftelse,

Placement are expected to ensure financing past end of 2023 for its lead product candidate

colorectal cancer) as well as the advancement of the company’s proprietary targeted
radiotherapy candidates. Oncoinvent has raised a total of NOK 535 million to date. The
closing marks the last round of planned funding before Oncoinvent goes to its contemplated
initial public offering (IPO) which the intends to carry out in the coming twelve months.

and those who had previously invested in the company”, said Jan A. Alfheim, Oncoinvent

250 million. The additional funding will allow the company to initiate preclinical
development of our proprietary antibodies OI-1 and OI-3 in order to develop our pipeline of
targeted radiotherapeutics one year earlier than planned.”

further and we thank our existing shareholders and new investors for their strong support.”

Ingrid Teigland Akay, Managing Partner of Hadean Ventures and board member of

interest we see in the radiopharmaceutical space, as well as the conviction in the
Oncoinvent management, which has demonstrated the ability to execute on their strategy.
We are pleased with the outcome of this financing round, enabling the next stage of the
lead asset and an accelerated plan for the pipeline.”
