The Board of Directors proposed that, PRICEWATERHOUSECOOPERS STATSAUTORISERET REVISIONSPARTNERSELSKAB was re-appointed as the Company's auditor.

The proposal was approved unanimously by all votes represented at the general meeting.

The board of directors proposes that the company's general guidelines on incentive remuneration to the management in accordance with the Danish Companies Act section 139 is amended, so that the following text is deleted, as this part is not relevant anymore:

"Warrant grant 2017
On June 14, 2016 the board of directors resolved that 696,220 warrants in total issued by the board of directors to the executive management board and the board of directors of the Company on respectively December 14, 2014 and February 18, 2016 were invalid as the Company had not prior to such issues duly adopted and obtained approval from the general meeting of incentive remuneration guidelines pursuant to the Danish Companies Act Section 139. Consequently, in order to compensate holders of the cancelled warrants and subject to approval from the general meeting, the company expects to grant a number of warrants to each holder of the cancelled warrants corresponding to the cancelled warrants. The estimated Black-Scholes value of this warrant grant to members of the board of directors and members of the executive management is DKK 16,013,060."

The proposal was approved unanimously by all votes represented at the general meeting.

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting authorizes attorney-at-law Lars Lüthjohan Jensen to register the resolutions made with the Danish Business Agency and in this connection to make such corrections and amendments to the approved documents which may be required by the Danish Business Agency for registration thereof.

The proposal was approved unanimously by all votes represented at the general meeting.

About MPI's multiple biomarker called Drug Response Predictor - DRP
MPI's DRP is a tool for developing tumor-derived genetic signatures to predict which cancer patients are high likely to respond to a given anti-cancer product. The DRP has been tested in 37 trials, where 29 trials showed that drug-specific DRP Biomarkers could predict which patients responded well to the treatment. The DRP platform has amongst others been externally validated and published in collaboration with leading statisticians at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. The DRP method can be used to design the Clinical Development Plan, i.e. to select which indications are relevant for a given   anti-cancer drug.  In addition to this, the individual genetic patterns of patients can be analyzed as part of a screening procedure for a clinical trial to ensure inclusion of patients with a high likelihood of response to the drug. DRP builds on comparison between sensitive and resistant human cancer cell lines, including genomic information from cell lines combined with clinical tumor biology and clinical correlates in a systems biology network. The DRP is a Big Data tool based on messenger RNA.
The DRP platform can be used in all cancer types, and has been patented for more than 60 anti-cancer drugs in the US.
