Comments from Jan Stålemark, CEO of AroCell

AroCell has now achieved an historical milestone. Our TK 210 ELISA test kit has been fully developed, achieved the CE-mark and is now commercially available, primarily for research and clinical development. It is the first and only ELISA kit on the market that can measure TK1 protein in serum from a standard blood sample. This fully enables us to initiate the next step in our plan - the critical and final clinical validation to confirm the clinical value of our product. We have already demonstrated how well the product has worked in smaller clinical studies, and established that the sensitivity is now sufficient to be used for several different types of cancers.

It is a very valuable investment to conduct clinical studies with this type of product as early as possible in order to effectively drive the marketing and sales efforts based on strong evidence-based clinical results. The results from these clinical studies will also establish the basis to generate health economic data. This data in turn is critical to create opportunities to obtain health care reimbursement for the TK 210 ELISA test in health care reimbursement systems. Without reimbursement, it is extremely unlikely that the product will be used frequently and successfully on a large scale. Our clinical development efforts are therefore one of the cornerstones in our plan for a successful market introduction

The results from planned clinical studies will be presented continually during the next three year period. The first results may already be presented already during the first six months of 2016, with access to planned biobank materials as a prerequisite. These results will be based on retrospective studies, which enable a relatively short process for data collection and analysis. We plan to conduct several of these studies and present results continually during this time period. We also plan to conduct so-called prospective studies as early as possible. These studies are based on collected samples for continuous analysis during the study period, which means that these types of studies take a more significant amount of time, up to five years before final results are available.

We currently have a very good product with performance that fulfils the requirements of a highly competitive in vitro diagnostic test. During development, we have also identified good opportunities to continue to improve product performance and to reduce production costs. We therefore plan to initiate a project during 2016 to optimize production.

As we have previously reported, we have determined that this preferential rights issue will provide us with enough resources to complete the clinical development of TK 210 ELISA and will create significant value for an established in vitro diagnostic company in the large and rapidly-changing market of cancer diagnostics.

Essential risks

Financial risks
AroCell's business activities are based on external financing. To date, the company has been successful in obtaining financing, but there are no guarantees of this happening in the future in a way that is advantageous to the company's shareholders. A sufficiently serious failure in future financing may affect the company's development and market value.

Development and production risks

Development and transfer to production are always associated with risks. A product manufactured at production scale does not always display exactly the same characteristics as one manufactured at research scale. Developing future products may also prove to be more complicated and take longer than expected.

Commercialization risks

There is always a risk that the products AroCell has developed will not achieve the expected positive reception on the market and that the product will need longer to gain acceptance. Particularly in the early stages, the quantity of products sold may then be lower and the time it takes to establish the product on the market may be longer than the company allowed for in its sales estimates.

In addition, there are risks associated with patent security and how the market assesses studies, approvals and certifications. Taking risk factors into consideration in decision processes and when designing routines and drawing up documentation means that the risks are assessed and their effects can be minimised and, to some extent, avoided.

Accounting principles

The interim report has been prepared in accordance with the same accounting principles as in the company's most recent annual report, i.e. pursuant to the Swedish Annual Accounts Act and taking into consideration general guidelines, recommendations and statements issued by the Swedish Accounting Standards Board.

The share

AroCell AB (publ) was listed on the AktieTorget marketplace on 25 May 2011. At 30 September 2015, there were 23,460,960 shares (quota value SEK 0.10)

Announcement of fully guaranteed preferential rights issue of approximately 52.2 MSEK.

The Board of Directors of AroCell AB has resolved on November 5, 2015 after the closing of the stock exchange, with support of the decision taken at the Annual General Meeting, a preferential rights issue of maximum 5 213 546 shares. Full subscription of the preferential rights issue will provide AroCell with a maximum of MSEK 52.2 before issue expenses. The company has received subscription undertakings from members of the board of directors, management and the company's largest shareholders, and signed agreements accordingly to fully guarantee the preferential rights issue. Additionally, investors without preferential rights are also given the opportunity to subscribe in this issue. AroCell also announces the intention of application to list the company shares for trade on the Nasdaq First North exchange during the first 6 months of 2016.

Comments from Jan Stålemark, CEO
AroCell has now achieved an historical milestone. Our TK 210 ELISA test kit has been fully developed, achieved the CE-mark and is now commercially available, primarily for research and clinical development. It is the first and only ELISA-kit on the market that can measure TK 1-protein in serum from a standard blood sample. This fully enables us to initiate the next step in our plan - the critical and final clinical validation to confirm the clinical value of our product. We have already demonstrated how well the product has worked in smaller clinical studies, and established that the sensitivity is now sufficient to be used for several different types of cancers. The clinical development and validation is necessary in order to launch the product on the global in vitro diagnostic cancer market.

Our product addresses several clinical needs, including early detection and prognosis of cancer, monitoring and optimization of cancer treatment, and follow-up post treatment to identify disease relapse. This is made available in a comfortable manner to the patient by means of a simple blood test. Analysis of the TK 210 ELISA tests is conducted in a standard manner on established equipment which is available in all modern clinical chemical laboratories. No special training of laboratory staff is required as the method of analysis is already standardized.

Our objective is to introduce a fully validated TK 210 ELISA on the global in vitro diagnostic market. In parallel with initiating the clinical validation we are also proceeding with marketing and initial sales of TK 210 ELISA, primarily to the clinical research customer segment.

We have determined that this preferential rights issue will provide us with enough resources to complete the clinical development of TK 210 ELISA and will create significant value for an established in vitro diagnostic company in the large and rapidly-changing market of cancer diagnostics.

Our intention of changing the share listing to the Nasdaq First North exchange is to provide AroCell with a greater exposure in order to attract institutional and international investors.

Motive for the preferential rights issue

AroCell registered TK 210 ELISA for CE mark at the Swedish Medical Products Agency in September 2015. The CE mark is a symbol of quality and is an essential step for the continued clinical validation need to obtain full clinical acceptance and commercial launch of a diagnostic product. AroCells objective is to prepare and launch the CE-marked TK 210 ELISA product for measurement of concentration of TK 1-protein in serum during the fourth quarter of 2015. TK 1 is a biomarker for unregulated cell turnover within the body, for example in progressive diseases such as cancer.

AroCell intends to initially utilize the preferential rights equity for clinical studies to establish clinical evidence for TK 210 ELISA, and thereafter for optimization and continued development of the product to achieve even better performance and quality, and to optimize the production process to reduce production costs, as well as establish TK 210 ELISA in health care reimbursement systems and for marketing and sales activities.

Subscription and guarantee obligations

Subscription agreements for approximately 3.9 MSEK (from members of the board of directors, management and larger shareholders) and guarantee agreements for approximately 48.3 MSEK have been received. The subscription and guarantee obligations amount to approximately 52.2 MSEK therewith, comprising a fully guaranteed preferential rights issue. Equity however has not been verified in advance. The guaranteed issues comprise a total compensation of approximately 3.9 MSEK.

AroCell presents a robust TK1 blood-test at an international biomarker meeting

During the congress of the International Society of Oncology and Biomarkers (ISOBM), 3-7 October 2015 in Zakopane, Poland, AroCell presented its TK 210 ELISA blood test as a robust tool for researchers and clinicians. The test shows good sensitivity and performance in measuring TK1 protein in serum.

Dr. Kiran Kumar Jagarlamudi and Professor Staffan Eriksson presented an abstract showing comparisons between TK1 protein levels in blood donors compared to TK1 levels in patients with different indications, measured with TK 210 ELISA. Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS, a pre-form of leukemia), breast cancer and prostate cancer were included. In breast and prostate cancer sera, TK1 protein showed a significant correlation with disease stage progression. "The sensitivity and specificity is quite good and clearly superior to that of activity-based TK assays, especially with serum from patients with solid tumors (Jagarlamudi et al., 2015, manuscript in preparation)." says Dr. Jagarlamudi.
(See chart in attached document)

Staffan Eriksson M.D, Ph.D, a co-founder of AroCell concludes: "Thanks to the robust product performance we can now expand our clinical trial activities in cooperation with leading international researchers. Ongoing testing and analyses will most likely further strengthen the scientific foundation for routine use of TK 210 ELISA in cancer disease management in future".
