Oslo, Norway, 27 August 2020

Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANO) announces its results for the second quarter
and first half 2020. A presentation by Nordic Nanovector's management team will
take place today in Oslo at 08.30 CET, see details below. A link to the webcast
and the presentation is available from the company's homepage
(www.nordicnanovector.com).

Lars Nieba, interim CEO of Nordic Nanovector, said: "The management team
together with the board have taken a range of actions during the last several
months to increase focus, improve patient recruitment while at the same time
conserve cash. These initiatives along with the positive PARADIGME interim
analysis and on-going protocol amendments have put Nordic Nanovector in a
significant improved position to deliver the three-month top line data from
PARADIGME in H2'2021. "

Q2 and H1 2020 Highlights

  · Strategic review completed: clinical development strategy revised, and cost
-saving initiatives implemented
  · Pivotal Phase 2b PARADIGME trial of Betalutin® progressing in 3[rd]-line
follicular lymphoma (3L FL)
    · COVID-19 continued to have a negative impact on PARADIGME patient
recruitment during Q3
    · 56 patients enrolled as of August 26[th], 2020

  · Protocol amendments are being made to PARADIGME to enlarge the eligible
patient population and increase the rate of enrolment into the study
  · Dr Lars Nieba appointed as interim Chief Executive Officer and Malene
Brondberg as Chief Financial Officer
  · Planned restructuring completed
    · Corporate and personnel reorganisation implemented, headcount reduced by
approximately 20%
    · Cost savings of approximately NOK 35 million per annum are expected from
the restructuring

  · Betalutin® granted Fast Track designation in the US and Orphan Drug
Designation in the European Union for Marginal Zone Lymphoma (MZL)


Events after Q1 2020

  · Result of PARADIGME Interim Analysis: recommendation to focus on single arm
investigating the "40/15" dosing regimen
    · Comprehensive review of data by Independent Review Committee
    · Both dosing regimens were well-tolerated and associated to a manageable
safety profile
    · Both arms were active based on efficacy measures of Complete Response,
Partial Response and Stable Disease
    · "40/15" arm demonstrated consistency across all sub-groups
    · "100/20" arm to be discontinued - dosed patients to be monitored for the
remainder of the trial
    · Maintain target to recruit 130 patients
    · Although we see improvements in certain geographies, the negative impact
due to COVID-19 continues to impact PARADIGME patient recruitment during Q3. The
target patient population is a high-risk group for COVID-19
    · Target set to announce PARADIGME three-month top-line data in H2'2021

  · Dr Christine Wilkinson Blanc appointed Chief Medical Officer


Financial Highlights

(Figures in brackets = same period 2019 unless otherwise stated)

  ·
Revenues for the second quarter amounted to NOK 0.0 million (NOK 0.0 million)

  · Total operating expenses for the second quarter were NOK 113.4 million (NOK
111.0 million)
  · Comprehensive loss for the second quarter amounted to NOK 125.6 million
(loss of NOK 110.4 million)
  · Revenues for the first half of 2020 amounted to NOK 0.0 million (NOK 0.0
million)
  · Total operating expenses for the first half of 2020 increased to NOK 239.3
million (NOK 200.9 million)
  · Comprehensive loss for the first half was NOK 217.2 (NOK 202.0 million)
  · Cash and cash equivalents amounted to NOK 246.2 million at the end of June
2020, compared to NOK 470.8 million at the end of December 2019


Outlook

The company is targeting the readout of three-month top line data from PARADIGME
in H2'2021. This timeline assumes the efficient implementation of the protocol
amendments and other initiatives to increase the rate of enrolment and the
impact of the COVID pan-epidemic on patient recruitment to slowly subside over
the next few months.

The steps the company has taken to conserve cash, including reducing headcount
and pausing certain clinical trials, will extend the cash runway into 2021. The
company expects to see the impact of these cost-saving initiatives emerge over
the remainder of 2020.

Following a broad range of actions carried out by the management team during the
course of 2020, the company now believes it is in a much-improved position to
deliver the pivotal results from PARADIGME in a timely manner. This would be a
key milestone for Nordic Nanovector as the company seeks to bring this exciting
new targeted NHL treatment to patients and maximise the value of Betalutin®.
