OSLO – October 19, 2022: Softox Solutions AS (“SoftOx” or the “Company”), a medtech and clinical-stage pharmaceutical company with a separate disinfection branch in Norway, today received the final approval on its application for the SoftOx biocidal product family for hand- and surface disinfection from the Swedish Chemicals Agency (KemI). This approval allows SoftOx to sell its disinfection products in Sweden.

This is a great day for SoftOx,” said Geir Almås, CEO of SoftOx Solutions. “When we decide to enter other European markets, this approval will strongly
increase the probability of our disinfection products being approved by the EU. Following our business development strategy, we will now carefully evaluate the opportunities to partner up with suitable companies that can bring our disinfection technology to market,” Almås continued.

SoftOx can use this approval as a basis for new applications — mutual recognition in sequence — in any European market. As the Swedish authorities have diligently evaluated and approved the application, the mutual recognition process, described in the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), is considered a less complex and less expensive process.

This approval documents that our technology is valid and that the products are effective and safe. I am proud of the team, which has successfully seen this project through to where we are today,” said Hans Jørgen Holum, SoftOx’s Project Manager of Biocides.

A safe and effective alternative to alcohol-based disinfectants
In addition, this approval may provide opportunities in markets outside Europe that normally rely on either EU or US regulatory decisions.

This approval comes in addition to several other documented advantages of our solution. We have reference customers in Norwegian and Swedish hospitals and clinical documentation of skin friendliness. The Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) also published a positive data analysis, which showed that the SoftOx disinfectant reduced the level of volatile organic compounds in the air during an intervention period by 30-60% when compared with alcohol-based disinfectants, improving employees’ health, safety and environment. With this approval in place, we are confident moving forward with our unique and effective disinfectant technology for both civil and military applications,” said Almås.

Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement by SoftOx Solutions AS (the “Company” or “SoftOx”) on the 4th of October 2022 regarding, amongst other, the Company’s limited cash position and need for liquidity. On this background, the Board of SoftOx has now raised a new convertible loan from certain existing shareholders who will provide the Company with new liquidity of NOK 25 million, plus a refinancing of the convertible loan of NOK 15 million reported on 28 June 2022. The total proceeds of the new loan will be NOK 40 million and have a due date 15 January 2024.

Together with the previously announced grants on the SoftOx inhalation solutions (SIS), the new loan will secure the Company a liquidity injection of up to a total amount of NOK 50 million. Payment of the funds under the SIS grant is subject to signing the final contract.

Continued pursuit of strategic solutions and partnerships

The new loan will give SoftOx time to deliver on previously announced target milestones over the next 6-9 months. The company has initiated a cost improvement plan to defer noncritical R&D activities, reduce future overhead and infrastructure expenditures and prioritize its ongoing development project. The Company continues to pursue different options to secure long term financing of the Company and is amongst other working on strategic solutions such as licensing out, sale of assets and future collaborating investments relating to the Company’s projects and assets.

“In line with our strategy, both wound care technology for human and animal health care and its disinfection technology, have, with the latest development, all reached a level of the development which opens for strategic partnership talks”, says Almås.

Further, the Company has made a strategic decision to merge the European Defence Fund (EDF) project for military use (preparedness for chemical and biological attacks) and the SIS project for civil use (fighting virus infections). The two projects are based on the same technology and by continuing the development as one merged project, the Company expects that it will benefit from the synergies between the two projects and that it expects to be in position to receive significant public funding for future development through the European Defence Fund program.

The structure of the convertible loan:
1. The loan is NOK 40 million in total, whereof NOK 15 million shall be used to refinance a loan from Almhaug Bolig AS from 28 June 2022. The remaining net proceeds from the loan shall be used for general working capital and corporate purposes.

2. The loan shall carry a fixed yearly interest rate of 10% p.a., to be paid in kind calculated quarterly and will accrue in full at the conversion date or maturity date of the loan.

3. The loan will be secured with sufficient pledge in the Company’s assets (patent portfolio).

4. The loan will run without instalments and the Company shall repay to each lender that lender’s amount of loan outstanding (not converted into Shares) in full on the Maturity Date, the 15th of January 2024, together with all accrued but unpaid interest, costs, and expenses.

5. A lender may at any time up to the Maturity Date convert each lender’s loan amount in full (the “Conversion Amount”) into new shares at the applicable Conversion Price.

6. The Conversion Price shall be NOK 22.5, which is about equal to the WVAP in the five-day period up to and including 7th of October, 2022.

7. The loan is subject to the approval of the Company’s extraordinary general meeting and will be registered in the Norwegian Registry of Business Enterprises in accordance with section 11-6 of the Norwegian private limited companies act.

8.The loan is otherwise on customary terms and conditions for such loan.

Geir Almås, CEO and primary insider of the Company, has through his closely associated company Hermod Farms AS subscribed and been allocated an amount of NOK 2.2 million of the loan. See the attached notification form for persons discharging managerial duties.

The Board has considered the loan in light of the rules on equal treatment under Oslo Rule Book II for companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and the Oslo Stock Exchange’s Guidelines on the rules of equal treatment. The loan implies a deviation from the existing shareholders’ pre-emptive rights to subscribe for and be allocated an amount of the loan. The Board has carefully considered such deviation and has resolved that the loan is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. In reaching this conclusion, the Board has among other things considered the availability of capital markets financing in a timely manner together with the necessity for the Company to strengthen its liquidity in the short term. Further, the Board has taken into account that the loan is based on the investor interest obtained following a marketing process with certain existing shareholders, and a public announcement that the Company was seeking funds.

Based on the above, the Board of Directors has decided to propose that the Company’s general meeting resolves the loan in accordance with the Private Limited Companies Act section 11-2 and calls an extraordinary general meeting for approval of the loan.

Notice of extraordinary general meeting
Notice is hereby given of an extraordinary general meeting of Company to be held on 18 October 2022 at 15:00 hours (CEST) in the offices of the Company in Oslo. The meeting will be a physical event, with the opportunity to attend the meeting online on request. The notice to the extraordinary general meeting and proxy forms and appendices are attached and are also available at www.soft-ox.com.

SpareBank 1 Markets is acting as financial advisor to the Company in connection with the issuance of convertible loan.

– The SoftOx Biofilm Eradicator (SBE) was shown to be safe and well tolerated.
– Treatment with SBE consistently reduced bacterial burden in chronic leg ulcers.
– The SBE-01 study demonstrates further proof-of-concept for the company’s wound care technology platform.
– SoftOx wound care formulations tailored to treatment of wounds in the presence or absence of biofilms.

OSLO – October 4, 2022
SoftOx Solutions AS (“SoftOx” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company based in Norway, announces top line results from its Phase 1 clinical study evaluating the safety and tolerability of SoftOx Biofilm Eradicator (SBE-01) (EudraCT no. 2021-000314-42), SoftOx’s antimicrobial solution for the treatment of chronic wounds. In addition, the company provides an update on its financial situation.

“A large proportion of chronic wounds, like venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers, are colonised by multiple species of bacteria organised in biofilms. These biofilms are detrimental to the wound healing process and are difficult to treat with conventional antiseptics and antibiotics,” says Dr Christopher Burton, Chief Medical Officer of SoftOx. “The SBE formulation has been specifically designed to penetrate the biofilm and exhibit an antimicrobial effect throughout the wound bed, to improve subsequent wound healing. The results of the SBE-01 trial are another important step towards realising a product that is expected to greatly improve quality of life for a large group of people suffering from chronic wounds of variable causes.”

SBE-01 is a first-in-human study investigating the safety, tolerability, and antimicrobial efficacy of single and multiple doses of SBE in patients with chronic leg wounds. The Phase 1 study was divided into two parts: a randomized, blinded, Single Ascending Dose (SAD) phase, followed by an open label, Multiple Ascending Dose (MAD) phase, where patients were treated once-daily or twice-daily over five days.

Data from the SBE-01 study demonstrate that SBE was safe and well-tolerated. There were no statistically significant differences in the evaluation of pain during and after the wound cleaning procedure comparing SBE with placebo. Treatment with all SBE formulations consistently reduced the absolute number of bacteria (bacterial burden) in the wound compared with pre-treatment (baseline). A dose dependent reduction in wound size was also observed in the multiple dose SBE treatment groups.

“These positive results add to our growing body of clinical evidence supporting the company’s wound care technology platform. There are around 40 million people with chronic wounds worldwide, where drug and medical device treatment costs are estimated to be $600 for each infection. The SoftOx technology promises to be a cost-effective wound care treatment, that can also be an effective solution to the treatment of multidrug-resistant bacteria, such as Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus or MRSA,” said Geir Almås, CEO of SoftOx. “Moving forward, we are excited to explore potential strategic partners to advance this promising asset through the clinical development.”

Proof of concept
The SoftOx technology platform is highly versatile, new generation antimicrobial agent with the potential to treat different types of wounds, from infection prevention in acute surgical or non-surgical wounds to infection removal in wounds typically associated with biofilm such as chronic leg ulcers and traumatic penetrating injuries.

SoftOx has previously published clinical data supporting the association between the use of SoftOx technology and improved wound healing in acute wounds. Taken together with the results from the SBE-01 study of antimicrobial effects in chronic leg wounds over a safe and tolerable dose range, these combined results are early proof of concept for the SoftOx wound care technology platform for a range of potential acute and chronic wound care indications.

Klaus Kirketerp-Møller, MD, PhD, from Copenhagen Wound Healing Center at Bispebjerg Hospital, Denmark commented: “We are encouraged by these results, which speak to the potential of SBE as a treatment of chronic wounds as well as aiding in the fight against antimicrobial resistance as a possible alternative to antibiotics.”

Significant unmet need
Combination antibiotic therapy and physical removal of biofilms are the commonly used forms of treatment of biofilm-associated infections today, but there remains a significant unmet need for new and innovative approaches to tackling biofilm and multidrug-resistant bacteria. Previous studies have shown that antimicrobial-resistant bacteria are present in more than 50 per cent of chronic wounds. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), antimicrobial resistance is one of the largest threats to human health. In 2019 alone, antimicrobial-resistant bacteria contributed to 4.95 million deaths worldwide.

Next steps
Having demonstrated early proof of concept for the SBE project and in accordance with the company’s corporate strategy, SoftOx will seek a strategic partner to further develop and advance its wound care segment within acute and chronic indications.

The clinical development of SBE is co-funded by the US Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) through the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC), a biomedical technology consortium that collaborates under a transaction agreement (OTA) with the US Army Medical Research and Development Command.

About biofilm and antimicrobial resistance
Biofilm in chronic wounds is a cluster of bacteria covered by a matrix, which makes it difficult for today’s antibiotics to effectively eradicate the
infection in chronic wounds. Up to 2 per cent of the population of developed countries are projected to experience a chronic wound during their lifetime. Within organised biofilms, bacteria are more resistant to antibiotics and the immune responses, making clinical treatment of biofilm infection difficult. According to the WHO, antimicrobial resistance is considered as a global crisis that threatens a century of progress in health. Presently, deaths linked to multidrug-resistant bacteria are already higher than those related to HIV/AIDS or malaria.

Update on the company’s financial situation
As reported at the end of the previous quarter, the company has a limited cash position, and there is a need to financially strengthen the company and its liquidity in the short and long term. The company is working actively with different solutions in this respect, both financially and strategically. Amongst others, the proof-of-concept data for the SBE are expected to play a vital role in securing future partnering investments and collaborations, and if successful, the company believes that a sale or partnership will provide the company with a good foundation to support the company’s financial situation and activities in the long term.

To strengthen the liquidity situation in the shorter term, the company has initiated a cost improvement plan to defer noncritical R&D activities, reduce future overhead and infrastructure expenditures and prioritize its ongoing development projects. On the basis of this plan, the company estimates that a cash injection of up to NOK 50 million is sufficient to fund the company to June 2023. An underwritten rights issue is one of the alternatives being evaluated. The estimated capital need does not take into account that approximately NOK 25 million of the previous announced grants on the SoftOx inhalation solution (SIS) is expected to be pre-paid at the time of signing the research agreement (as SoftOx is defined as a SMB company).

The company will provide an update as soon as a solution has materialized and thus also indicate the financial and accounting effects on the same.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company based in Norway, announced today the end of the Phase 1 clinical study of the SoftOx Biofilm Eradicator (SBE-01) (EudraCT no. 2021-000314-42), SoftOx’s antimicrobial solution for treatment of chronic wounds.

“We would like to thank our study participants and the staff at DanTrials ApS. SoftOx is looking forward to announcing the top line results in Q4 2022,” said Glenn Gundersen, Sr Medical Director of SoftOx.

SBE-01 is a first-in-human study investigating the safety, tolerability, and antimicrobial efficacy of single and multiple doses of the SoftOx Biofilm Eradicator (SBE) in patients with venous leg ulcers. In Phase 1b the company treated the wounds once and twice daily over 5 days. The original study design included three times daily administration for five days; however, the company expects that data from the two first groups are sufficient to document safety, tolerability, and antimicrobial efficacy in clinically relevant treatment schedules in chronic wounds.

“With the closure of Phase 1 study, we can turn our attention towards analysing the data and complete our preparations for the Phase 2 study investigating the effect of SBE on wound closure in venous leg ulcers,” said Gundersen.

Co-funded by the US Naval Medical Research Center
The study is co-funded by the US Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) under the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC), a biomedical technology consortium that collaborates under a transaction agreement (OTA) with the US Army Medical Research and Development Command.

“The Phase 2 study will also be co-funded by the United States Naval Medical Research Center, and we are confident that the SBE-01 results will support selection of an optimal SBE formulation and dosing schedule for treating patients with chronic wounds in both hospital and long-term community care settings,” said Gundersen.

SBE is in clinical development as an anti-infective treatment for chronic wounds, designed specifically to penetrate and kill pathogens within biofilms. Due to the broad spectrum and multi-targeted antimicrobial effects, SBE has been shown to kill antibiotic resistant bacteria in biofilms without inducing new antimicrobial resistance in vitro. SoftOx has previously published clinical data supporting the association between reduced bacterial burden and improved wound healing. These associations will be further investigated in the planned SBE Phase 2 (SBE-02) study.

As previously reported, SBE-01 recruitment was delayed in the early stages of the trial due to the Danish nursing strike in 2021. To maintain overall clinical development timelines, SoftOx has taken the decision to omit the three times daily treatment, stop further patient recruitment and to end the trial.

Facts about biofilm:
Biofilm in chronic wounds is a cluster of bacteria covered by a matrix, which makes it difficult for today’s antibiotics to effectively eradicate the infection in chronic wounds. 1-2 % of the population are projected to experience a chronic wound during their lifetime in develop countries. Under the protection of biofilm, microbial cells in biofilm become tolerant and resistant to antibiotics and the immune responses, which increases the difficulties for the clinical treatment of biofilm infection.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company based in Norway, announced today the positive feedback for its subsidiary company, SoftOx Defense Solutions (SDS) on its European Defence Fund (EDF) application. SDS has been granted approximately NOK 97 million to develop an EU military inhalation solution for all EU military troops.

SDS announced December 12, 2021, the submission of the EDF application with a pan-European consortium, consisting of 20 international research and development (R&D) and industry partners from 10 nations. The consortium, led by Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA) in France, is developing military medical countermeasures (MCMs) against chemical substances, biological agents, radioactive and nuclear substances, so-called CBRN substances, for use in the Norwegian Armed Forces and the EU’s military forces.

The consortium is granted approximately NOK 500 million and SDS is assigned 20 percent of these R&D-funds, which will be allocated at the end of 2022 for 3 years onwards. The Norwegian Ministry of Defence (FD) and SoftOx will jointly cover approximately 10 % of the awarded funding and FD has guaranteed to additionally co-finance 40% of the Norwegian contribution.

The EDF incentivises and supports collaborative, cross-border R&D in the area of defence. The Fund aims to increase the EU’s technological edge and develop capabilities key for strategic autonomy and resilience for its Member States and the protection of its citizens. To increase the resilience against these emerging threats, intended accidental or natural origin, it is critical that Europe develops necessary capabilities to protect its military and civilian population through MCMs for which today very few are approved for use. The present EDF grant seeks to enhance preparedness in CBRN security and emphasizes the urgency to improve preparedness for and response to CBRN threats through the development of appropriate MCMs.

“We are honoured and extremely proud to have been accepted as an important and integral player in this pan-European consortium and grateful for such significant funding for our research and development plans”, said Rune Jomaas, CEO of SDS. “This grant is unique in a Norwegian industry context and was made possible thanks to the support and close cooperation with the Norwegian Ministry of Defence (FD), the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) and the Norwegian Defence and Security Industry Association (FSi). With this grant, SDS will proceed into a contractual phase preparing for an exciting pan-European research activity with dedicated partners”, concluded Jomaas.

“These funds will ensure collaboration and partnerships with leading European research institutions with a common goal to develop new and advanced technology against CBRN threats. This synergy will be instrumental and invaluable for SDS and SoftOx for advancing the SoftOx technology platform into new products as MCMs for the European defence market”, said Glenn Gundersen, Medical Director of SDS and SoftOx.

Geir Almås, CEO of SoftOx, added, “This funding is a significant recognition of our effort to develop cutting-edge technology. The grant also confirms that the SoftOx technology platform can potentially be a significant game-changer in developing new medical solutions for both the civilian and military market.”

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company based in Norway, announces the publication of data from a randomized control trial (RTC) evaluating the wound-healing effect of SoftOx’s stabilized hypochlorous acid solution (HOCl) on acute wounds. The results were published in Acta Dermato-Venereologica, a peer-reviewed journal focused on clinical and experimental research in dermatology and venerology.

The randomized trial applied a suction blister wound model and randomized 20 healthy volunteers whereby stabilized hypochlorous acid or control (saline) solutions were assigned. The study’s primary objective was to evaluate the wound healing properties of HOCI, and the secondary objective was microbiological control, pain levels and safety with stabilized HOCl compared to the control treatment.

Wounds were treated and rinsed on days 0, 2 and 4. Wound healing was assessed blindly, and bacterial growth was evaluated as the number of colony-forming units cultured from surface swabs.

Stabilized HOCI was found to accelerate early re-epithelialization (wound healing) significantly on day 4 compared with the control group (p=0.00051) and was not inferior to the control solution on day 10 (p<0.0001). In addition, the median bacterial counts in the wounds were significantly lower after treatment with stabilized HOCI compared with the control group directly after treatment, which also lasted over time.

Overall, the study demonstrates the immediate and durable antimicrobial action and beneficial effect of stabilized HOCI on acute wounds and suggests that hypochlorous acid is a promising antimicrobial wound rinsing agent.

The full title of the publication is: Effect of Stabilized Hypochlorous Acid on Re-epithelialization and Bacterial Bioburden in Acute Wounds: A Randomized Controlled Trial in Healthy Volunteers” and can be accessed here:
https://medicaljournalssweden.se/actadv/article/view/1624

Co-author and medical director of SoftOx Solutions Glenn Gundersen, commented:

We are encouraged by these data, which demonstrate the potential of stabilized hypochlorous acid as a well-tolerated wound irrigation device with significant antimicrobial properties. We know that the overuse or misuse of antibiotics is linked to the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, so it is crucial to identify new and effective treatments to prevent and treat wound infections without inducing resistant microbes.

The Board of SoftOx Solutions AS (the “Company”/”SoftOx”) has entered into a loan agreement with Almhaug Bolig AS, where the main shareholder is one of the shareholders in SoftOx. Almhaug Bolig AS will provide the company with a short-term loan of NOK 15 million.

The Company has experienced some delays both in connection with regulatory and commercial processes and in the implementation of certain clinical studies. To compensate for the liquidity burden caused by these delays, the company’s main shareholder has given the company a loan of NOK 15 million.

The Company is considering increasing the amount of the Loan to up to approx. NOK 30 million to be raised from existing shareholders and certain professional investors, subject to a minimum individual loan amount of NOK 1 million.

The net proceeds of the Loan will be used to fund the Company’s ongoing project and operating activities and for general corporate purposes.

Almhaug Bolig AS has committed to NOK 15 million of the Loan, of which NOK 5 million will be in form of refinancing of the convertible loan raised in October 2021 and the remaining NOK 10 million will be in cash. Almhaug Bolig AS is a shareholder of the Company, in which the Company’s ultimate main shareholder is also a shareholder and chair of the board.

The Loan does not accrue any interests and the loan falls due 15 January 2024. The individual lenders may convert the outstanding amount of the Loan into shares in share capital increases with issuance of new shares in the Company and set off of the lenders’ claim for repayment of the Loan at any time prior to maturity. The conversion price will be calculated based on a volume weighted average trading price for the Company’s shares prior to the Loan less 10%, provided, however, that if the Company carries out a share offering at a price lower than the conversion price, the lender will have the right to convert the loan at the lower price in such offering shall apply.

Any new shares to be issued pursuant to the conversion right under the loan agreement will be resolved by the Company’s board of directors pursuant to the authorization granted by the Company’s annual general meeting on 12 May 2022 to increase the Company’s share capital (or any other authorization available to the board of directors at such time).

The Board has considered alternative structures for raising funds. Following careful considerations, the Board is of the view that it will be in the common interest of the Company and its shareholders to raise funds through the convertible loan setting aside the pre-emptive rights of the shareholders. By structuring the funding as a convertible loan, the Company will be in a position to raise capital before the summer, and in an efficient manner, with a lower discount to the current trading price and with significantly lower risks compared to a rights issue.

The Company expects that it will seek to raise additional funds during the next 12 months and will then seek to structure such offering in line with market practice for capital raising, subject to prevailing market conditions.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company based in Norway, notes the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment’s (Forsvarets Forskningsinstitutt (FFI)) field experiment evaluating non-alcohol disinfectants, including SafeDes+, SoftOx’s alcohol-free hand disinfectant, in comparison with alcohol-based disinfectants.

The field experiment took place in Hemsedal, Norway and collected data from 175 indoor air quality sensors to assess the importance of air quality and employees’ ability to perform assigned tasks.

According to the report, alcohol-free disinfectants reduced the level of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the air during the intervention period by 30-60% when compared with alcohol disinfectants.

The data also represent a statistically significant association between reported long-term sick leave, VOC and temperature, which are relevant to employee performance and well-being.

Additional analysis shows that employees experienced a better indoor environment and well-being during work hours when using non-alcohol disinfectant products.

OSLO – May 19, 2022: SoftOx Solutions AS (“SoftOx” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical and medtech company based in Norway, today announced top line results from its Phase 1 study evaluating SoftOx Inhalation Solution (SIS). SIS is a novel aqueous formulation of hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a biological oxidant with broad spectrum antimicrobial (antiviral and antibacterial) properties.

In this Phase 1, first-in-human study, nebulised SIS achieved the primary objective of safety and tolerability in healthy subjects. There were no observed local tolerability issues, no adverse effects on pulmonary function, and no serious adverse events.

We are highly encouraged by these Phase 1 results demonstrating an acceptable safety and tolerability profile for a potential future inhaled antiviral treatment”, says Dr Christopher Burton, Chief Medical Officer for SIS. “This study paves the way forward for the future clinical development of SIS within infectious disease indications in the upper and lower respiratory tract.”

SIS-01 is a first-in-human study investigating the safety and tolerability of single and multiple ascending doses of nebulised SIS to healthy subjects. The randomized, double-blind trial was the first systematic, placebo-controlled study investigating the safety and tolerability of inhaled HOCl in humans. A total of 57 healthy volunteers were randomised to receive SIS formulations of up to 100 µg/ml HOCl, four times daily for five days, or a matching placebo regimen.

SIS has the potential to be a breakthrough in respiratory treatment”, stated CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx, “the broad spectrum antimicrobial effect of SIS obviates the need for expensive diagnostic testing which can also delay the start of treatment, and would represent a paradigm shift in the management of respiratory infections.”

Data from the study demonstrates that an aqueous formulation of HOCl can be administered to the respiratory tract as an aerosol, as evidenced by dose-response effects on safety parameters, which were predominantly mild, even in the most intensive dosing regimen.

With these positive results from the Phase 1 study, SoftOx will continue Phase 2 clinical development of SIS. The company is already in the process of preparing Phase 2 documentation and is engaged in dialogue with the European Medical Association.

For more information about the SIS-01 study, please visit clinicaltrials.gov and reference identifier: NCT05188638.

SoftOx vil beholde sitt produkt for hånd og overflate desinfeksjon i markedet. Selskapets uenighet med Miljødirektoratet dreier seg ikke om produktets kvaliteter, men hvorvidt vi har rett til å være i det norske markedet, frem til endelig formell produktgodkjennelse.

Med henvisning til børsmelding 28.1.2022, hvor SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) opplyser at Miljødirektoratet opprettholder sin tolkning av det europeiske biocidreglementet. Dette gjør de til tross for at det ikke er i overensstemmelse med EU kommisjonens (DG SANCO) tolkning av EUs biocidforordning. Miljødirektoratets brev er en tolkningsuttalelse og SoftOx vil, inntil annet blir pålagt dem, forholde seg til EU kommisjonens tolkning av anvendelsesområdet for overgangsordningen og beholde sitt produkt for hånd og overflatedesinfeksjon i markedet. Selskapet har en forventning om at Miljødirektoratet vil legge til grunn samme tolkning av EU regelverket som EU kommisjonen og vil derfor forfølge saken mot norske myndigheter for å få avklart anvendelsesområdet til gjeldende overgangsordning i Norge, herunder endelig avgjørelse på klagesaken i Klima og miljødepartementet. Dersom dette ikke fører frem, vil Selskapet gå til rettslige skritt for å beskytte sine interesser og søke å få en avklaring av regelverket av riktig nasjonal eller internasjonal rettsinstans.

Det er anvendelsen av SoftOx hånd- og overflatedesinfeksjonsproduktet som hånddesinfeksjon, Miljødirektoratet mener ikke er omfattet av en overgangsordning. Produktet er for øvrig godkjent av Statens Legemiddelverk for bruk på overflater i helsevesenet, og valgt av Sykehusinnkjøp som alkoholfri hånddesinfeksjon til norske sykehus for perioden 2022-2026. Produktet er klinisk veldokumentert med fire kliniske studier og en rekke dyrestudier. Samtidig har selskapet med godkjennelse fra Danish Medical Agency igangsatt studier som innebærer bruk av høyere doser i kroniske sår og inhalasjon i lunger av tilnærmet tilsvarende produkt. Virkestoffet i produktet er godkjent av norske myndigheter, vært gjennom en streng risikovurdering og blitt godkjent innenfor EU/EØS for desinfeksjonsformål. Uoverensstemmelsen dreier seg derfor ikke om produktets kvaliteter, men hvorvidt det kan selges som hånddesinfeksjon i det norske markedet frem til endelig formell godkjenning. Denne saken har heller ingen påvirkning på øvrige forsknings og utviklingsprosjekter i selskapet.

Mer om sakens bakgrunn:
I børsmelding sendt 28.1.2022 opplyste Selskapet om Miljødirektoratets brev om at tidligere tolkning av biocidreglementet opprettholdes med den følge at gjeldende overgangsbestemmelser ikke kan anvendes på Selskapets  hånddesinfeksjonsmidler. Selskapet har informert fortløpende gjennom høsten 2021 om prosessen med å få avklart anvendelsesområdet for overgangsordningen, herunder at Miljødirektoratet avslo Selskapets anmodning om overgangsordning for sine hånddesinfeksjonsprodukter. Miljødirektoratets begrunnelse er basert på at biocidregelverket og overgangsordningen tolkes dithen at biocidprodukter med aktivt klor frigjort fra hypoklorsyre ikke er tillatt etter overgangsbestemmelsene uavhengig om det er til hånddesinfeksjon eller i kombinasjon med andre produkttyper. Biocidregelverket er et EU-regelverk og EU kommisjonen har tolket dette motsatt av Miljødirektoratet og har bekreftet at SoftOx sine hånd og overflate desinfeksjonsprodukter kan omsettes under gjeldende overgangsordning (jf. børsmelding 1. desember 2021).

Det faktum at Miljødirektoratet, til tross for EU kommisjonens uttalelse, velger å holde fast på sin tidligere tolkning av EUs biocidregelverk, gjør situasjonen utfordrende for SoftOx. Selskapet hadde, og har, en forventning om at Miljødirektoratet vil legge til grunn samme tolkning av EU regelverket som EU kommisjonen. Selskapet har derfor besluttet at det er behov for å forfølge saken for å få avklart anvendelsesområdet til gjeldende overgangsordning i Norge. Dersom Miljødirektoraret fastholder sitt standpunkt, vil Selskapet gå til rettslige skritt for å beskytte sine interesser og søke å få en avklaring av regelverket av domstolene.

Selskapets desinfeksjonsprodukter for overflater er i markedet ihht. overgangsordningen i Biocidforeskriften. Miljødirektoratets brev er en tolkningsuttalelse og SoftOx vil, inntil annet blir pålagt dem, forholde seg til EU kommisjonens tolkning av anvendelsesområdet for overgangsordningen og beholde sin hånd og overflatedesinfeksjon i markedet.

Om SoftOx Solutions AS
SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx, notert på Euronext Growth Oslo) er et norsk
BioTech-selskap med base i Oslo med formål om å bidra til å bekjempe store

(AMR), biofilminfeksjoner i kroniske sår og spredning av virus. For mer

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) har i dag mottatt brev fra Miljødirektoratet hvor det meddeler i brevet at det inntil videre opprettholder sin tidligere tolkning av det europeiske biocidreglementet, fremfor EU kommisjonens tolkning. Dette innebærer at Miljødirektoratet inntil videre legger til grunn at biocidprodukter med aktivt klor frigjort fra hypoklorsyre i Norge ikke er tillatt etter overgangsbestemmelsene uavhengig om det kun er til hånddesinfeksjon eller i kombinasjon med andre produkttyper (PT2). Denne tolkningen er det motsatte av hva EU kommisjonen konkluderte tidligere (som meddelt i børsmelding 1. desember 2021).

Ettersom biocidforordningen er en EU forordning, har SoftOx innrettet seg etter EUs fortolkning og er ikke enige i Miljødirektoratets tolkning. Miljødirektoratets holdning til saken er derfor svært overraskende for selskapet, og selskapet må vurdere hvilke skritt de ønsker å ta.

With reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) on 2 July 2021, SoftOx has chosen to temporarily withdraw the
application. The biocidal products covered by the transitional arrangement will not be affected, and a new application will be submitted by the deadline of 1
July 2022. The transitional arrangement ensures the company’s presence in the market. The reason why the company chooses to withdraw the application is a
desire to rework and optimize the new application so that it better suits the changed conditions that now apply.

When the application was first prepared, it was based on the Norwegian Environment Agency’s recommendations and guidelines, which have subsequently proved to be unclear and not applicable, as well as the later lack of coincidence between the Norwegian Environment Agency and the EU Commission’s interpretations in significant areas.

A new application will be submitted in accordance with the EU Biocidal Regulations by 1 July 2022. The transitional arrangement is therefore valid if a new application is submitted by this date.

Furthermore, SoftOx states that the products for surface disinfection have received approval from the Norwegian Medicines Agency for use in the health care system.

The company has started to deliver to Hospital Purchasing (HINAS) and other players both within and outside the health sector.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) are pleased to announce that the uptake of patients into the SBE-01 clinical study has improved considerably the past weeks, leading to completion of the first two dose-level cohorts.

Due to lack of Serious Adverse Events / Adverse Events, the Safety Monitoring Committee were unanimous on escalation to the next dose-level. Although early in the study, we see that our solutions are well tolerated in chronic wounds and confirm so far what was documented in previous animal models, says Glenn Gundersen, Chief Medical Officer in SoftOx Solutions.

SBE-01 (EudraCT no. 2021-000314-42) is the first-in-man (phase I) study with the SoftOx’ lead wound care product, SBE, designed to treat infected chronic wounds.

Settlement of the New Shares will be made by delivery of existing and unencumbered shares in the Company that are already listed on Euronext Growth Oslo to be lent from Dinge Invest AS (the “Share Lender”) by the Manager pursuant to a share lending agreement between the Manager, the Company and the Share Lender (the “Share Loan”). Accordingly, the shares delivered to the investors will be tradable from allocation.

The Share Loan will be settled by the Manager with new shares in the Company, which has been resolved by the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) pursuant to an authorization granted by the Company’s annual general meeting on 13 April 2021.

Following registration of the share capital increase pertaining to the Private Placement with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises, the Company will
have a share capital of NOK 201,669.36, divided into 10,083,468 shares, each with a par value of NOK 0.02.

In relation to the Private Placement, Almhaug Bolig AS has exercised its right to convert NOK 10 million of its short-term unsecured interest-free loan, with a
principal amount of NOK 15 million, into new shares in the Company at a conversion price of NOK 38.55 per share in accordance with the loan agreement
between the Company and Almhaug Bolig AS dated 13 October 2021 (the “Debt Conversion”). The subscription price per share was agreed in the loan agreement based on the volume weighted average share price in the days prior to the loan was granted on 13 October 2021. The Debt Conversion is subject to completion of the Private Placement and resolution by the Company’s extraordinary general meeting to issue the new shares in a share capital increase by way of conversion of debt, scheduled to be held on or about 29 December 2021 (the “EGM”).

Subject to satisfaction of the conditions for completion of the Private Placement, the Board has resolved to propose that the EGM resolves to authorize the Board to carry out a subsequent offering of up to 218,000 new shares (the “Subsequent Offering”) towards the Company’s shareholders as of 15 December 2021 (as documented by the shareholder register in the Norwegian Central Securities Depository (VPS) as of 17 December 2021, the “Record Date”) who were not allocated shares in the Private Placement and who are not resident in a jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful or, for jurisdictions other
than Norway, would require any prospectus, filing, registration or similar action (“Eligible Shareholders”).

The subscription price in the Subsequent Offering will be the same as the Subscription Price in the Private Placement, i.e. NOK 55 per share. The Subsequent Offering will be conditional, inter alia, on (a) completion of the Private Placement, (b) approval of the authorization of the Board for the Subsequent Offering by the Company’s shareholders at the EGM, and (c) publication of an offer prospectus by the Company. Whether the Subsequent Offering will ultimately be completed, will also depend on the development of the price of the shares in the Company after completion of the Private Placement and the Debt Conversion. The Company will issue a separate stock exchange notice with further details on the Subsequent Offering when finally resolved.

Advokatfirmaet Wiersholm AS is acting as legal advisor to the Company in connection with the Private Placement.

JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF ANY OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

SoftOx Solutions AS (the “Company”) has engaged SpareBank 1 Markets AS (the “Manager”), to advise on and effect a contemplated private placement of up to 915,000 new shares (the “New Shares”) in the Company (the “Private Placement”).

The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to fund commercial activities related to bringing the Hand Disinfection and Wound Irrigation Solution to the European and the US market as well as finalization of phase 1 development of the Infection Remover (BE) and general corporate purposes.

The final subscription price per New Share (the “Subscription Price”) and the final number of New Shares to be issued, and as such, the total gross proceeds from the Private Placement, will be determined through an accelerated book building process. The Private Placement will be directed towards a limited number of selected investors, in each case, subject to and in compliance with applicable exemptions from relevant prospectus, filing and registration requirements. The minimum application and allocation amount have been set to the NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000. The Company may however, at its sole discretion, allocate an amount below the NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000 to the extent applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirement pursuant to applicable regulations, including Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 and ancillary regulations, are available.

The bookbuilding period for the Private Placement starts on 15 December at 16:30 hours (CET) and closes on 16 December 2021 at 08:00 hours (CET) (the “Application Period”). The Company, together with the Manager, reserves the right, at its own discretion, to extend or shorten the Application Period or modify the terms of or cancel the Private Placement at any time (prior to completion) and for any reason and on short notice. The allocation of New Shares will be determined following the expiry of the Application Period and the final allocation will be made by the board of directors of the Company. Notification of allocation and payment instructions is expected to be issued to the applicants on or about 16 December 2021 through an allocation letter to be issued by the Manager (the “Notification”).

The allocated New Shares in the Private Placement will be delivered to the applicant’s VPS account on a delivery versus payment (DVP) basis. Settlement for the New Shares is expected to be on or about 20 December 2021. The New Shares will be settled by delivery of existing and unencumbered shares in the Company that are already traded on Euronext Growth Oslo to be lent from Dinge Invest AS (the “Share Lender”) by the Manager pursuant to a share lending agreement between the Manager, the Company and the Share Lender (the “Share Loan”). The allocated New Shares will be delivered to the applicant’s VPS account as soon as practicable after full payment has been received and the Conditions (as defined below) for the Private Placement have been met. The Manager will settle the Share Loan with new shares in the Company to be resolved issued by the board of directors pursuant to the Board Authorization (as defined below).

Completion of the Private Placement is subject to the following conditions (the “Conditions”): (i) the board resolving to consummate the Private Placement, allocate the New Shares and issue the New Shares pursuant to the authorization to increase the share capital of the Company granted by the Company’s annual general meeting of 13 April 2021 (the “Board Authorization”), (ii) the share capital increase pertaining to the issuance of the allocated New Shares being validly registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises and the allocated New Shares being validly issued and registered in the VPS, and (iii) the Share Lending Agreement not being terminated prior to allocation.

Almhaug Bolig AS has, in connection with the Private Placement, exercised its right to convert NOK 10 million of its short-term unsecured interest-free NOK 15 million loan to the Company, into new shares in the Company at a conversion price of NOK 38.55 per share in accordance with the loan agreement between the Company and Almhaug Bolig AS dated 13 October 2021 (the “Debt Conversion”). The subscription price per share was set based on the volume weighted average share price in the period before the loan was granted. The Debt Conversion is subject to completion of the Private Placement and the resolution by the Company’s extraordinary general meeting to issue the new shares in a share capital increase by way of conversion of debt, which is expected to be held on or about 29 December 2021.

The Private Placement represents a deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive right to subscribe for the New Shares. The board of directors has considered the Private Placement in light of the equal treatment obligations under the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and the rules of equal treatment set out in the continuing obligations for companies admitted to trading on Euronext Growth and Oslo Børs’ guidelines on the rules of equal treatment, and has concluded that there is a basis for deviating from the existing shareholders’ preferential rights. The board of directors has in this respect, inter alia, taken into consideration (i) that the Company needs funding to pursue its growth strategy and that the Private Placement allows the Company to utilize the current trading prices of the shares and favourable market conditions, in particular in light of the volatility in the Company’s shares; (ii) that the Private Placement gives the ability to broaden and strengthen the Company’s shareholder base; (iii) the size of the Private Placement; and (iv) the availability of the shares in the open market. The board of directors has concluded that the Private Placement is in compliance with these requirements.

The Company may, subject to completion of the Private Placement and the EGM approving an authorization to the Board or an issuance of shares to this effect at the EGM, and certain other conditions, consider a subsequent repair offering of new shares (the “Subsequent Offering”) at the final Subscription Price and otherwise in line with market practice. Shareholders being allocated shares in the Private Placement will not be eligible to participate in a Subsequent Offering. The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to not conduct or to cancel the Subsequent Offering.

SoftOx Solutions AS works in a pan-European consortium to develop military countermeasures against chemical substances, biological agents, radioactive substances and nuclear material, so-called CBRN substances, for use in the Norwegian Armed Forces and the EU’s military forces.

In April 2021, SoftOx entered a three-year research collaboration with the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) to improve the operational capability of Norwegian and international soldiers. In this connection, the subsidiary SoftOx Defense Solutions AS (SDS) was established. Based on SoftOx technology, SDS develops military applications for the Norwegian Armed Forces, the EU’s military forces, NATO and the US Armed Forces. The work with the consortium lies in this company.

The consortium is led by France and the application is sent to the European Defense Fund (EDF) on 9 December 2021. The research work is based on SoftOx’s technology as a basis for the development of military countermeasures and has a total estimated total of approx. NOK 500 million (Euro 50 million). SDS’s share is estimated at approximately NOK 120 million (Euro 12 million) to develop a military inhalation solution for the EU. The company will apply to EDF to cover 80 percent of the costs associated with the project, ie NOK approx. 96 million (Euro 9.6 million). The Norwegian contribution must account for the rest, ie approx. NOK 24 million (Euro 2.4 million)

The Ministry of Defense has decided to guarantee 40 percent of the Norwegian contribution through so-called co-financing and has allocated SDS a total of 10.6 MNOK to the project.

– This is a sign of quality and a declaration of confidence from the Ministry of Defence. We have big plans for SDS in the future, says CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx Solutions.

(SoftOx) We are pleased to announce that the first patient has been recruited to the SBE-01 clinical study. After having experienced unforeseen challenges regarding access to and availability of eligible patients, mainly due to the nationwide nurse strike in Denmark, it is reassuring that the study team has now been able to screen and select several patients for the study, says Glenn Gundersen, Chief Medical Officer in SoftOx Solutions.

SBE-01 (EudraCT no. 2021-000314-42) is the first-in-man (phase I) study with the SoftOx’ lead wound care product, SBE, designed to treat infected chronic wounds. The study will establish a tolerable dose and treatment schedule for SBE to be able to develop it into an effective infection-treatment solution in problematic, non-healing wounds.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) have announced today that the first subject has received SoftOx Inhaled Solution (SIS), in the first-in-human Phase 1 trial. SIS is an aerosolized pan-antimicrobial product intended for the treatment of upper and lower respiratory tract viral and bacterial infections. The trial is part of a development program for the use of SIS in the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and other respiratory tract infections, and is a collaboration between SoftOx and University of Copenhagen.

The first subject received a single administration of low dose SIS. Healthy volunteers will receive three escalating doses of SIS or placebo, nebulised as a single dose once, twice or four times daily for 5 days.

SIS is a stabilised solution of hypochlorous acid that can be aerosolised and inhaled. The antimicrobial properties of hypochlorous acid are well described, and endogenous production of hypochlorous acid is one of the key elements involved in host immunity from infectious disease.

“The SoftOx technology platform is a stabilised formulation of hypochlorous acid that permits aerosolization using a jet nebulizer” says Dr Christopher Burton, Chief Medical Officer for SIS. “The SIS-01 trial will evaluate safety and tolerability of three different concentrations administered up to four times daily, which will provide the basis for future studies evaluating efficacy in COVID-19 and other respiratory tract infections.”

SIS-01 (EudraCT No.: 2020-004462-19) is a single-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, study will explore the safety and tolerability of single and multiples doses of inhaled nebulised SIS in healthy subjects.

“This is another important milestone in the development of a pharmaceutical product for which there is a huge unmet need,” says Geir Almås, CEO.

“Society faces a growing threat of new emergent viral strains and increasing antimicrobial resistance to currently available treatments. SIS has the potential to fill that need.”

The board of SoftOx Solutions AS has entered into a loan agreement with Almhaug Bolig AS, where the main shareholder is one of the shareholders. Almhaug Bolig AS will provide the company with a short-term loan of NOK 15 million.

“In the last year, the company has experienced some delays both in connection with regulatory processes with the authorities and in the implementation of certain clinical studies. To compensate for the liquidity burden caused by these delays, the company’s main shareholder has given the company a loan of NOK 15 million. Additional supply of liquidity may be considered if desired. The company is grateful that the company’s main shareholder shows his support for the company I this situation. It is important for the company to have owners who are dynamic and support the company financially in such situations”, says CEO Geir Almaas of SoftOx Solutions.

“We work with several exciting processes. Among other things, we recently received approval from the Danish Medicines Agency to start SIS (SoftOx Inhalation solution) studies in humans. For us, this is a very exciting race, which we have high expectations for”, Almås continues.

The loan has a maturity of 12 months and is not interest-bearing. The loan will in principle be repaid in cash, but until the maturity of the loan, Almhaug Bolig AS will have the right to convert the loan into equity in the company by issuing new shares at a price equal to the volume- weighted average share price in the last five days before entering into the agreement, minus five percent, NOK 38,551 per share. The board is of the opinion that the discount is commercially justified as the loan is interest-free. If the company carries out a share issue before the loan matures or is converted into shares, Almhaug Bolig AS will have the right to convert the loan into shares at the same price per share as the subscription price in such an issue.

New shares that may be issued in connection with the conversion right will be approved by the company’s board in accordance with the authorization given by the annual general meeting on 13 April 2021. The board has assessed the loan agreement and the right of conversion in relation to the rules on equal treatment and is of the opinion that there is a valid reason for differential treatment.

OSLO – October 6, 2021: SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) have announced today that the Danish Medicines Agency (DKMA) approved the Phase 1 clinical trials for SoftOx Inhaled Solution (SIS), an aerosolized antimicrobial product intended for the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections (e.g., influenza and common colds) and lower respiratory tract infections (e.g., pneumonia and bronchitis).

“SIS would be a game changer in the treatment of viral and bacterial infections in the respiratory tract”, says CEO Geir Almås at SoftOx Solutions.

“Soon commencing human trials”

The Phase 1 trial is part of a development program for the use of SIS in the treatment of respiratory tract infections starting with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infections. This trial is scheduled to commence in autumn 2021, in Denmark.

“We are pleased to have satisfied the Danish Medicines Agency requirements, and that we will soon commence this first-in-human trial of SoftOx Inhaled Solution”, says Dr Christopher Burton, Chief Medical Officer for SIS.

SIS is a stabilised solution of hypochlorous acid that can be aerosolised and inhaled. The antimicrobial properties of hypochlorous acid are well described, and endogenous production of hypochlorous acid is one of the key elements involved in host immunity from infectious disease.

“Hypochlorous acid is extremely effective in killing viruses and bacteria in vitro. Up until now, the problem has been maintaining hypochlorous acid in a stable form until delivery to the target tissues,” says Dr Burton.

First major step
SIS-01 (EudraCT No.: 2020-004462-19) is a single-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, the study will explore the safety and tolerability of single and multiples doses of inhaled nebulised SIS in healthy subjects.

“This is the first major step in the development of a pharmaceutical for treatment of the respiratory tract based on SoftOx Solutions proprietary technology for the stabilisation of hypochlorous acid,” says Almås.

“SIS would be a game changer in the treatment of viral and bacterial infections in the respiratory tract. SIS is particularly relevant in the context of the current pandemic and for future epidemics and pandemics, and the emerging threat of antimicrobial drug resistance”, continues Almås.

Update regarding the ongoing application process for national approval of biocidal products (disinfection products) in Norway (with reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) on September 22, 2021).

The Ministry of Climate and the Environment has not upheld the appeal against a decision to reject the application for approval in parallel mutual recognition of SoftOx disinfection. Pending a decision from Sweden, SoftOx must therefore temporarily suspend the sale of SoftOx hand disinfectant. When SoftOx is successful in Sweden, the product will be able to be replaced on the market in Norway.

Update regarding the ongoing application process for national approval of biocidal products (disinfection products) in Norway (with reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) on March 29 and September 17, 2021).

The Ministry of Climate and the Environment has not upheld the postponed implementation of whether there should be a deadline in Norway for SoftOx to suspend sales by 3 October 2021, for SoftOx disinfection based on active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite.

-We do not understand this decision. It is important to emphasize that this has nothing to do with the quality of and clinical documentation of the product, says CEO Geir Almås in SoftOx.

The notice concerns the application for disinfection based on active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite, where there has been an ongoing appeal process in the Ministry of Climate and Environment regarding the approval of SoftOx disinfection. This application was rejected by KemI in Sweden, and has been appealed to the Land and Environmental Courts in Sweden. Pending a decision from Sweden, SoftOx has applied to the Ministry of Climate and Environment in Norway to remain in the market with the product in question. The current deadline for SoftOx to suspend sales is by October 3, 2021, with the possibility of continued use for a period of six months thereafter. SoftOx has now received a rejection of the request for deferred implementation of decisions. It is pointed out, however, that when SoftOx is upheld in Sweden, the product will be able to be put back on the market in Norway.

The Ministry justifies its refusal on the grounds that: “It is therefore only a question of a temporary loss of revenue” and further writes: “The consequences of the decision are reversible, in the sense that the product can be relaunched on the market.”

– The Ministry has based their decision on process and unfortunately shows little understanding of the importance of keeping the product in the market. The positive is that the Ministry states that the processing of our application will be prioritized, says Almås

SoftOx is now taking a thorough review of the letter from the Ministry of Climate and the Environment and continues the active dialogue with both KemI in Sweden.

– We perceive the dialogue with KemI as very constructive and good, and are optimistic about a positive outcome, says Almås.

Update regarding the ongoing application process for national approval of biocidal products (disinfection products) in Norway (with reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) on March 29th and July 2. 2021).

The Norwegian Environment Agency has rejected that SoftOx ‘hand disinfection can be covered by a transitional scheme during the period in which the application for product approval is processed. The Norwegian Environment Agency’s interpretation of the regulations is disputed by SoftOx.

– The company does not understand the directorate’s interpretation of the text in the hearing proposal. The situation has been assessed together with leading lawyers. Our opinion is that the NEA here has made a mistake. That SoftOx as a small company should now bear the risk of mistakes made by the Norwegian Environment Agency is perceived as grossly unfair, says CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx Solutions.

SoftOx has two processes towards regulatory authorities associated with its disinfection products: application for approval based on active chlorine released from hypochloric acid and an application for approval based on active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite. The products are identical, except for a regulatory term for active substance. The fact that the company has two ongoing application processes is because the regulations are complex and that they are interpreted differently from country to country.

SoftOx’s application for approval of the product family in disinfection based on active chlorine released from hypochlorous acid has been submitted in accordance with requirements specified in the Norwegian Environment Agency’s hearing memorandum from March 2021 to new regulations (2021/2157). SoftOx bases its opinion on the fact that there is a transitional arrangement for all disinfection products when the application for approval was submitted within the deadline specified in the hearing memorandum. However, the Norwegian Environment Agency has by letter, and as part of an ongoing dialogue, announced that the that there should be no transitional scheme for products based on active chlorine from hypochlorous acid Product type 1 (hand disinfection).

Without a valid transitional arrangement or temporary permit, SoftOx cannot place its disinfectant products based on this active substance on the market until the Norwegian Environment Agency has approved SoftOx’s new application. SoftOx is now undertaking a thorough review of the letter from the Norwegian Environment Agency and is considering submitting the case to the Ministry of Climate and Environment.

In addition to the application for disinfection based on active chlorine released from hypochlorous acid, there is an ongoing appeal process in the Ministry of Climate and Environment regarding the approval of SoftOx disinfection based on active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite. This application was rejected by KemI in Sweden, and an appeal is pending in the Ministry of Climate and Environment as to whether there should be a deadline in Norway for SoftOx to suspend sales by October 3, 2021 with the possibility of continued use for a period of six months thereafter.

– We strongly disagree with the Norwegian Environment Agency’s perception of the regulations. We recently won the contract announced by HINAS (Helseforetakenes Innkjøpsservice AS) for hand disinfection products, which shows that our product is best in class. However, we believe in a good and fair treatment from the Ministry of Climate and Environment, to continue to deliver products to our customers. The conclusion is that the regulatory situation is still unclear, says CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx Solutions.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) has entered into an agreement to purchase 50 percent of the shares in Ose Water AS (Ose). According to the agreement, SoftOx will also move all production of disinfection products to Ose and thereby secure reliable production and delivery both nationally and internationally.

SoftOx experiences increased demand for the company’s disinfection products, which increases the need for safe and high-quality production.

“Having Ose on the team enables us to comply with the expected demand from Norwegian hospitals, and at the same time the expected increased demand both nationally and also internationally. In addition to the award in a national tender, the company has entered into agreements with a large Norwegian financial group and a Norwegian airline.

Sykehusinnkjøp HF’s national tender – hygiene products, disinfectants and dispensing solutions for hand disinfectants, soap and cream (HINAS).

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) has participated in the HINAS tender mentioned here and reports that the company’s hand disinfectant product SafeDes® has been selected and will be listed in Norwegian hospitals as the only alternative to alcohol-based products following the decision in the national tender.

From the evaluation for subcontract 16, hand disinfectants without alcohol (bottles), SoftOx received a top score on the evaluation criteria “properties on
skin” and quality. The product is an alternative for those who have skin problems related to the use of alcohol. The skin does not feel sticky or dry
after use.

This, in combination with a competitive price, is the overall evaluation that SoftOx comes out best in the assessment.

The product has been assessed by the country’s foremost professional expertise on efficacy and safety in disinfection. This is a confirmation of our base
technology, and the decision clearly shows that the product has a place in the health care system. “Winning a national hospital tender is also a very important
reference for the company in other markets, in addition to being a confirmation of our research and our work so far. This award shows that our commitment to
health has been right and provides a good basis for further investment,” says CEO Geir Almås.

The company announces increased investment in its disinfection products. Based on the clear advantages of the products: skin friendliness, effect and security,
we will continue to invest in the categories defense, health, B2B and the transportation industry. We now see that the market responds within these
categories and are experiencing increased demand and sales. However, the Norwegian hospital market is the company’s pilot customer and is not expected to
provide profitability during the first years.

With reference to the stock exchange announcement on 2 July 2021, the company is still working on the basis that company will enter a transitional arrangement in the connection with the new biocidal regulations.

The first in human study of SoftOx Biofilm Eradicator started as planned at the end of May, but due to the ongoing nurses’ strike in Denmark, we do not expect
to be able to admit patients to the study until the strike is over. The strike is expected to last for approximately 10 weeks. The study is therefore expected
to be somewhat delayed; however, the company will strive to make up for lost time.

This is the phase I study with our lead wound care product, designed to treat infected chronic wounds. The study will establish a tolerable dose and treatment schedule for SBE, to be able to develop it into an effective infection-treatment solution in problematic, non-healing wounds.

With reference to the stock exchange announcement on March 29, 2021, SoftOx has now submitted a new application for national approval of its biocidal products in Norway. The application addresses the objections raised in the first application and only applies to the Norwegian market.

The new improved application now addresses the weaknesses that were commented on in the previous application. New applications to other countries will be submitted on an ongoing basis.

application.” says CEO Geir Almås.

SoftOx Solutions AS (SoftOx) is pleased to announce that the results of the clinical investigation SoftOx Wound Irrigation Solution for acute wounds (SWIS) have been completed. The study, which has been conducted at Bispebjerg University Hospital in Copenhagen, is a confirmatory clinical investigation to document safety and performance of SoftOx Wound Irrigation Solution (SWIS) compared to Normal Saline (NS) in a human wound model.

The study showed both significant improvement in wound healing and reduction in bacterial burden compared to Normal Saline (NS), positioning the product as superior towards today’s market leaders. Finishing the clinical development program strengthens the SoftOx platform for further product development. The results from the study “SWIS-02” confirm the excellent safety profile of the SoftOx technology platform, also strengthening the documentation of SoftOx hand disinfectant technology with regards to skin friendliness being superior to today’s alcohol-based hand disinfectant. The company now prepares to file their wound irrigation SWIS for final approval as a Medical Device in Europe.

SoftOx Wound Irrigation Solution (SWIS) will become a Medical Device intended for wound rinsing and moistening to prevent infections in all types of acute wounds, such as abrasions, cuts, burns and surgical wounds. SWIS has the potential to become a favoured alternative to the current wound irrigation solutions on the market which have challenges related to safety (side effects, resistance development) and effect. According to market reports from The Insight Partners, the global market size for wound irrigation solutions was estimated at USD 1.6 billion in 2018, and yearly 190 million wounds is treated in hospitals. Finalization of the SWIS-02 study concludes the clinical evaluation part of the SWIS documentation package. SWIS is expected to be the company’s first CE-marked product for the European market.
Regarding the wound healing capabilities, the study meets its primary endpoint of re-epithelialization (non-inferior to NS) by day 10 with high significance (p<0.0001). Furthermore, early re-epithelialization at day 4 was significantly better than normal saline (mean 57% versus 43%, p<0.0001). Also, overall usability aspects of SWIS handling were reported to be satisfactory.

Once again SWIS demonstrates and confirms previous findings (from SWIS-01) to be safe and well tolerated as a wound irrigation solution for acute wounds and not associated with any major risks. Performance outcomes demonstrate antimicrobial properties with excellent wound healing (re-epithelialization) observations. “This has been a highly successful study with respect to implementation, conduct and outcome and clearly confirms the favourable properties of SWIS as an excellent wound irrigation solution,” says Glenn Gundersen, Medical Director of SoftOx.

With reference to the stock exchange announcement from SoftOx Solutions AS (“SoftOx”) on December 11th, 2020, when SoftOx received information from the Swedish Chemicals Agency that the application for SoftOx Disinfection Products was sufficiently complete to proceed to the final decision-making. Contrary to
this statement, the Swedish Chemicals Agency changed its initial position by rejecting SoftOx application with reference to its latest request for additional testing data.

This implies an estimated six-months delay for SoftOx’s major launch in the European markets, notwithstanding, the Swedish decision does not affect continued sales and marketing in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

“Based on the information received in December we were confident that our data was sufficient to approve our products. We are surprised by the decision and the justification when the Agency now ask for additional tests”, says CEO Geir Almås of SoftOx Solutions AS.

The request for additional test concerns certain impurities in the formulated disinfectants. SoftOx fundamentally and scientifically disagrees with the Swedish Chemicals Agency’s assessment and request for additional tests for this data. During the evaluation process, SoftOx submitted a series of test data, generated by the accredited third-party laboratory “Sintef”, in which it was confirmed that the concerned impurities does not impact adversely the SoftOx disinfectant products. In support of this, SoftOx has also undertaken additional tests to verify its initial conclusions presented to the competent authorities during the evaluation process. These confirmatory tests (including requested tests) are anticipated to be finalized in November 2021.

Notwithstanding, SoftOx is committed to defend its scientific position and pursue its biocides submission before the national competent authorities. On advice from its scientific experts, SoftOx intends to contest and submit an administrative appeal in Sweden, and to undertake additional regulatory measures to ensure a scientifically viable and sustainable implementation of EU’s biocides regime on SoftOx products.

“SoftOx feels confident that when the requested documentation is available, the application will be duly recognized.” Says Almås.
