- Stockholders’ equity significantly surpasses the $2.5 million minimum required by Nasdaq

- Company is to seek Nasdaq’s formal confirmation of compliance with equity requirements under the exchange’s Rule 5550(b)(1).

Boston (May 6, 2024)—Allarity Therapeutics, Inc. (“Allarity” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ALLR), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing personalized cancer treatments, today announced that its stockholders’ equity is significantly above the $2.5 million minimum required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1)(the “Equity Rule”). The Company is in the process of obtaining official written confirmation from Nasdaq, which will reinstate its full compliance with Nasdaq listing requirements.

In line with this progress, Allarity plans to formally request the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to withdraw its Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No.: 333-275224), which was originally submitted to the SEC on October 30, 2023. This decision follows a thorough reassessment of the company’s financial position, reflecting the recent improvement in equity status.

Thomas Jensen, CEO of Allarity Therapeutics, stated, “I am confident in our ability to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s equity rule. Achieving this milestone not only aligns with our regulatory goals but also frees us to fully focus on advancing stenoparib, our leading asset. We are committed to revolutionizing the treatment landscape for advanced, recurrent ovarian cancer patients with this promising therapy, enhanced by our unique Drug Response Predictor, the DRP®, our dedicated companion diagnostic.”

The Company will disclose the updated equity amount in its forthcoming Form 10-Q as part of its routine financial disclosures. This Form 10-Q is expected to be filed on May 14, 2024, and will provide stockholders with detailed insights into the Company’s financial situation.

About the Drug Response Predictor – DRP® Companion Diagnostic
Allarity uses its drug-specific DRP® to select those patients who, by the gene expression signature of their cancer, are found to have a high likelihood of benefiting from a specific drug. By screening patients before treatment, and only treating those patients with a sufficiently high, drug-specific DRP score, the therapeutic benefit rate may be significantly increased. The DRP method builds on the comparison of sensitive vs. resistant human cancer cell lines, including transcriptomic information from cell lines combined with clinical tumor biology filters and prior clinical trial outcomes. DRP is based on messenger RNA expression profiles from patient biopsies. The DRP® platform has proven its ability to provide a statistically significant prediction of the clinical outcome from drug treatment in cancer patients dozens of clinical studies (both retrospective and prospective). The DRP platform, which can be used in all cancer types and is patented for more than 70 anti-cancer drugs, has been extensively published in the peer-reviewed literature.
