OncoSec Announces Reverse Stock Split - November 08, 2022

PENNINGTON, N.J. and SAN DIEGO, Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- OncoSec Medical Incorporated (NASDAQ: ONCS) (the "Company" or "OncoSec"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing intratumoral immunotherapies to stimulate the patient's own immune system to target and eradicate cancer, today announced it intends to effect a 1-for-22 reverse split of its issued and outstanding common stock. The reverse stock split will become effective on November 9, 2022 (the "Effective Date"), and the Company's common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens November 9, 2022.

The reverse stock split is primarily intended to bring the Company into compliance with the minimum bid price requirements for maintaining its listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

The Company's Board of Directors approved the reverse stock split and the Company filed the Certificate of Change with the State of Nevada with the effective date of November 9, 2022. Approval of the reverse stock split by the Company's stockholders was not required.

The Company's common stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq Capital Markets under the symbol "ONCS". The new CUSIP for the common stock following the reverse stock split will be 68234L 405.

The reverse stock split will affect all stockholders uniformly and will not alter any stockholder's percentage interest in the Company's equity, except to the extent that the reverse stock split would result in a stockholder owning a fractional share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive a fractional share will instead be entitled to receive the number of shares after rounding up to the next whole shares. Holders of the Company's common stock held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee do not need to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record will be receiving information from the Company's transfer agent regarding their common stock ownership post- reverse stock split.

About OncoSec Medical Incorporated

OncoSec Medical Incorporated (the "Company," "OncoSec," "we" or "our") is a biotechnology company focused on developing intratumoral immunotherapies to stimulate the body's immune system to target and attack cancer. OncoSec's lead immunotherapy investigational product candidate – TAVO™ (tavokinogene telseplasmid) – enables the intratumoral delivery of DNA-encoded interleukin-12 (IL-12), a naturally occurring human protein with immune-stimulating functions. The therapeutic approach, which employs electroporation (EP), is designed to produce a limited, localized expression of IL-12 in the tumor microenvironment, which ultimately enables the immune system to target and attack tumors throughout the body. OncoSec is committed to building a diverse clinical pipeline utilizing TAVO™ as a potential treatment for multiple cancer indications either as a monotherapy or in combination with leading checkpoint inhibitors; with the latter potentially enabling OncoSec to address a great unmet medical need in oncology: non-responders to anti-PD-1 treatment. Results from recently conducted clinical studies of TAVO™ have demonstrated a local anti-tumor immune response, and subsequently, a systemic therapeutic effect as either a monotherapy or combination treatment approach along with an acceptable safety profile, warranting further development.
