Scancell Holdings plc (AIM: SCLP), the developer of novel immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer, announced on 18 April 2018 the details of a Placing and Subscription pursuant to which it had conditionally raised, in aggregate, approximately £7.5 million, before expenses, by way of the placing of 57,411,001 Placing Shares and subscription of 4,999,999 Subscription Shares at the issue price of 12 pence per share. Also the Company announced that it was providing Qualifying Shareholders with an opportunity to subscribe at the issue price of 12 pence per share, for up to 16,666,667 Open Offer Shares to raise gross proceeds of up to £2.0 million by way of the Open Offer. The Placing and Subscription completed on 20 April 2018 upon admission of the Placing Shares and Subscription Shares to trading on AIM.

The Company has received valid acceptances in respect of 10,142,838 Open Offer Shares representing 60.9 per cent. of the maximum Open Offer Shares available. All applications made pursuant to the Open Offer including the Excess Shares applied for under the Excess Application Facility have been met in full.

The Company has therefore conditionally raised gross proceeds of approximately £1.2 million through the Open Offer and gross proceeds of approximately £8.7 million in total through the Open Offer and the Placing and Subscription combined. The Open Offer is conditional upon, inter alia, Second Admission becoming effective and the obligations under the Placing and Open Offer Agreement not having been terminated in accordance with its terms.

Dr Cliff Holloway, Chief Executive Officer of Scancell, commented:
“We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our shareholders, both existing and new, for their continued support. The monies raised will enable us to progress the next phase of clinical development of our innovative cancer treatments.”

Notes for Editors


About Scancell

Scancell is developing novel immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer based on its ImmunoBody® and Moditope® technology platforms.

ImmunoBody® vaccines target dendritic cells and stimulate both parts of the cellular immune system. They can be used as monotherapy or in combination with checkpoint inhibitors. This platform has the potential to enhance tumour destruction, prevent disease recurrence and extend survival.

• SCIB1, the lead programme, is being developed for the treatment of melanoma. A phase 1/2 clinical trial has so far successfully demonstrated survival data of more than five years.

• SCIB2 is being developed for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer and other solid tumours. Scancell has entered into a clinical development partnership with Cancer Research UK for SCIB2.

Moditope® represents a completely new class of potent and selective immunotherapy agents. It stimulates the production of killer CD4 T cells which overcome the immune suppression induced by tumours, allowing activated T cells to seek out and kill tumour cells that would otherwise be hidden from the immune system. Moditope® alone, or in combination with other agents, has the potential to treat of a wide variety of cancers.

• Modi-1 is being developed for the treatment of triple negative breast cancer, ovarian cancer and sarcomas.
