Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes, has announced the closing of its registered direct offering of 3,116,884 shares of its common stock with a single health care-dedicated institutional investor. Genprex secured gross proceeds of $12 million, before deducting commissions and estimated expenses, with the offering priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules at a price of $3.85 per share. “We believe that the closing of this transaction with a single, health care-dedicated institutional investor is further evidence that the potential of our gene therapies for cancer and diabetes is gaining recognition within the community of sophisticated health care investors,” said Rodney Varner, president and CEO of Genprex. “The proceeds will provide additional resources to conduct our Acclaim-1 and Acclaim-2 clinical trials, combining our gene therapy, REQORSA, with Tagrisso (by Astra Zeneca) and Keytruda (by Merck & Co.), respectively, for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer, as well as continue the pursuit of our pre-clinical programs in cancer and diabetes, and to potentially acquire additional technologies for our pipeline.”

About Genprex Inc.
Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. The company’s lead product candidate, “REQORSA(TM)” (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). REQORSA has a multimodal mechanism of action that has been shown to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells; re-establish pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells; and modulate the immune response against cancer cells. REQORSA has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. In January 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track Designation for REQORSA for NSCLC in combination therapy with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R)) for patients with EFGR mutations whose tumors progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone.
