CombiGene: University of Copenhagen has become new shareholder

Following a share transfer from CombiGene's co-founder David Woldbye,
the University of Copenhagen is now a shareholder in CombiGene, with
1.9% of the shares. The transaction is based on a mutual agreement
from 2007.

The University of Copenhagen has become a shareholder in CombiGene and
now holds 216 000 shares. The transfer fulfils an agreement dating
back to a PCT patent application from 2007, which stipulated that the
transfer would be conducted once CombiGene became a public and listed
company.

"We are proud to have the distinguished University of Copenhagen as a
shareholder", says CombiGene's Chairman Arne Ferstad and continues
"It also reflects the value in the ongoing Swedish-Danish
collaboration".

After the transaction was executed on January 12th 2016, University of
Copenhagen owns 1.9% of the shares in CombiGene and David Woldbye
owns 1.9%.
