Comment from Charlotte Fribert, CEO:
We are extremely pleased with the good outcome of the exercise of the TO3 warrants. We see the high level of participation as evidence of the continued high level of confidence in the Company. With the injected capital, we are strengthening the financial base to pursue the development of TOL2, a new unique treatment for patients with myasthenia gravis, with high intensity. I would like to thank existing and new shareholders of Toleranzia who participated in the warrant program for their willingness to be part of the Company's exciting journey towards its first drug in the field of rare autoimmune diseases.
