Allarity Therapeutics Regains Compliance with Nasdaq's Minimum Stockholders' Equity Requirement

Boston (May 20, 2024)—Allarity Therapeutics, Inc. (“Allarity” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ALLR), a Phase 2 clinical-stage pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing personalized cancer treatments, today announced that it has received formal written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC’s Office of General Counsel (“Nasdaq”) that the Company has regained compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the “Equity Rule”).

This confirmation follows the Company’s successful efforts to cut operation costs and improve its balance sheet, including raising new equity and reducing outstanding liabilities. As a result, Allarity Therapeutics now meets the stockholders' equity requirement of at least $2.5 million.

Thomas Jensen, CEO of Allarity Therapeutics, stated, “We are very pleased to announce that Allarity has regained compliance with Nasdaq's equity requirement. During our panel hearing with Nasdaq in February this year, we presented a strategic plan to achieve this goal, and I am satisfied to note that we have successfully delivered on our commitments and received formal confirmation from Nasdaq. This allows us to continue focusing on our mission to advance our lead asset, stenoparib, toward regulatory approval with the aim of bringing this promising therapy to patients in need of new treatment options for advanced ovarian cancer.”

As part of the compliance confirmation, Allarity Therapeutics will be subject to a mandatory panel monitor for one year.

As announced in an earlier press release, the Company intends to provide a more comprehensive clinical update in the near future to share more details on the progress made following the early conclusion of its Company's Drug Response Predictor (DRP®) guided Phase 2 trial of stenoparib in advanced, recurrent ovarian cancer.

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.
