REYKJAVIK, ICELAND (March 28, 2023) Alvotech (NASDAQ: ALVO) (the Company), a global biotech company specializing in the development and manufacture of biosimilar medicines for patients worldwide, today announced that the Board of Directors has resolved to increase the Companys share capital by an amount of one-hundred-and-forty-thousand-fifty-seven-dollars-and-ninety-cents (USD 140,057.90) by issuing fourteen-million-five-thousand-seven-hundred-and-ninety (14,005,790) ordinary shares. The Companys subsidiary, Alvotech Manco ehf. (the subsidiary), has subscribed to all of the newly issued shares for a price of USD 13.51 per share. The shares held by the subsidiary are treated as treasury shares without voting rights or dividend entitlement.

On 10 February 2023 the Company announced the completion of a private share placement and when the transaction was settled 11,834,061 shares previously held by the subsidiary were transferred to the investors.
