About Algeta

Algeta is a company focused on developing novel targeted therapies for patients
with cancer based on its alpha-pharmaceutical platform.

Algeta's lead product Alpharadin (radium-223 chloride) is in development as a
potential new treatment for cancer patients with bone metastases. It is in pre-
registration for castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) patients with bone
metastases, and filings are expected mid 2012 in the USA and Europe; Alpharadin
has Fast Track designation for this indication in the USA.

Alpharadin is also under clinical investigation in breast cancer patients with
bone metastases and in combination with docetaxel chemotherapy in CPRC patients
with bone metastases.

Alpharadin is being developed and will be commercialized, pending approval,
under a global agreement with Bayer Pharma AG.

Algeta is also exploring the potential of Targeted Thorium Conjugates (TTCs),
which are based on conjugating the alpha-emitter thorium-227 to targeting
molecules, as a basis of a future pipeline of tumor-targeting alpha-
pharmaceutical candidates.

The Company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and is listed on the Oslo Stock
Exchange (Ticker: ALGETA).

Alpharadin and Algeta are trademarks of Algeta ASA.
