GT Biopharma Announces Stock Sales Agreement with Holders of Converted Securities

WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / OCTOBER 12, 2017 / GT Biopharma Inc. (OTCQB: GTBP and Euronext Paris: GTBP.PA) announced today that persons who received common stock (“Common Stock”) upon the conversion of notes, preferred stock and in some cases upon the settlement of warrants, during the last week of August 2017, have amended their conversion agreements so that no Common Stock will be sold for less than $7.00 per share thru November 30, 2017. Sales above $7.00 per share are only allowed under the leak out provisions agreed to in the original conversion documents.

Further details of Common Stock lock up provisions are disclosed in the Company’s current disclosure on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.

About GT Biopharma, Inc.:

GT Biopharma, Inc. is a biotechnology company focused on innovative drugs for the treatment of cancer and CNS diseases (Neurology and Pain), along with other unmet medical needs. GT’s lead oncology drug candidate, OXS-1550 (DT2219ARL), is a novel bispecific scFv recombinant fusion protein-drug conjugate composed of the variable regions of the heavy and light chains of anti-CD19 and anti-CD22 antibodies and a modified form of diphtheria toxin as its cytotoxic drug payload. OXS-1550 targets cancer cells expressing the CD19 receptor or the CD22 receptor or both receptors. When OXS-1550 binds to cancer cells, the cancer cells internalize the drug and are killed due to the action of cytotoxic payload. OXS-1550 has demonstrated success in early human clinical trials in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphoma or leukemia. OXS-3550 TriKE technology was developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. As demonstrated in non-clinical models, this targeted immunotherapy directs immune cells to kill cancer cells while diminishing drug-related toxicity. GT’s CNS platform is focused on acquiring or discovering and patenting late-stage, de-risked, and close-to-market improved treatments for CNS disease (Neurology and Pain) and shepherding the products through the FDA approval process to the NDA. The current CNS pipeline products currently include treatment for neuropathic pain, the symptoms of myasthenia gravis, and motion sickness.
