Execution of the annual general meeting’s resolution on the removal of share class in Medivir AB (publ)

The annual general meeting in Medivir AB (publ), held earlier today on 4 May 2023, resolved to adopt new articles of association, whereby the share class A is removed and shares of series B are reclassified to ordinary shares.


All of the company’s existing shares as of today consist of shares of series B and there are no shares of series A outstanding. In connection to the removal of the share class A, the company’s shares will receive the new ISIN code SE0020181014 and the new ticker “MVIR”. The new ordinary share will take over the existing trading venue for the share of series B on Nasdaq Stockholm. The change takes place automatically and shareholders do not need to take any action.


The board of directors have decided that the record date for the change shall be Wednesday 17 May 2023, which means that the last day of trading in the existing shares of series B is Monday 15 May 2023. First day of trading in ordinary shares with new ISIN code and ticker is Tuesday 16 May 2023.

Medivir in brief

Medivir develops innovative drugs with a focus on cancer where the unmet medical needs are high. The drug candidates are directed toward indication areas where available therapies are limited or missing and there are great opportunities to offer significant improvements to patients. Medivir is focusing on the development of fostroxacitabine bralpamide (fostrox), a pro-drug designed to selectively treat liver cancer cells and to minimize side effects. Collaborations and partnerships are important parts of Medivir’s business model, and the drug development is conducted either by Medivir or in partnership. Birinapant, a SMAC mimetic, is exclusively outlicensed to IGM Biosciences (Nasdaq: IGMS) to be developed in combination with IGM-antibodies for the treatment of solid tumors. Medivir’s share (ticker: MVIR) is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm’s Small Cap list.
