Appendix Unmet Medical Need 15
Significant Unmet Medical Need in NMIBC ~440,000 new cases each year globally1 Bladder cancer is the 6th most prevalent cancer in the US, of which 75%-85% is NMIBC2,3 Bladder cancer is the single most expensive ($4 billion/year) cancer to treat in the US 4 BCG SHORTAGE One of the worst patient experiences among common cancers is complicating patient care Survival rates for bladder cancer have decreased in recent years in the UK, during which BCG time there was also a BCG shortage5 AFTER BCG a patient’s only option is to undergo radical cystectomy or face cancer progression 1Bray F et al.

Jarow et. al. 2015. 17 *Note: BCG Connaught strain was approved in 1990 and supply withdrawn from the US market in 2012.
Carcinoma in situ: the most difficult form of NMIBC to treat Carcinoma in situ vs. Normal Bladder Lining: Clinical Trial Implications: • Field change disease often involving the entire bladder lining that is very difficult to treat • Failed on two or more courses of BCG, which is the gold standard for treatment of high- risk NMIBC • Rigorous local and independent central review of all urine cytology and biopsy samples Normal inner • Complete response definition (Carcinoma in situ) lining means that the bladder is completely cancer-free at each timepoint Note: Diagram is for illustrative purposes 18
Radical cystectomy remains recommended treatment option after BCG failure 60-70% lifetime risk of cystectomy associated with NMIBC1 • Long, complex surgical procedure (10+ hours) • Significant rates of morbidity (30-60% within 90 days) and mortality (2-9% within 6 months)2 – 64% complication rate within 90 days3 – ~35% of patients require ER visits and 26% require readmission3 – Additional complications can occur as most patients with NMIBC are elderly and often have co- morbidities • Tremendous impacts to patient quality of life • Life following radical cystectomy requires catheterization and urinary diversion 19 1Aldousari, S.

Appendix Dual Mechanism of Action 22
Vicinium is Highly Differentiated and has a Dual Mechanism of Action • Fusion protein consisting of an antibody fragment and a cytotoxic payload • Small size facilitates tumor penetration and greater drug delivery • Selectively targets cancer cells while generally sparing healthy cells • Inhibits protein synthesis and kills both rapidly proliferating and slow-growing cancer cells • Effective against multi-drug resistant cancer cells Dual MoA Selectively targets EpCAM to Immunogenic cell death activates destroy cancer cells by a T cell-mediated immune immunogenic cell death response to attack the tumor 23
Vicinium: Dual Mechanism of Action Mechanism 1: Exotoxin A Payload Kills cell directly Non-cleavable Ligand-checkpoint peptide Linker Vicinium interaction deactivates Antibody Fragment anti-tumor response Checkpoint Vicinium selectively Vicinium does not induce expression T cells recognize targets EpCAM of immunosuppressive markers neoantigen and kill cancer cells Ligand Mechanism 2: Activates immune system Checkpoint Vicinium causes inhibitor immunogenic cell death by triggering Neoantigen damage-associated release molecular patterns (DAMPs) T cell proliferation Checkpoint inhibitors reactivate T cell anti-tumor activity DAMPS “Eat signal” APC Activation Neoantigen presentation “Find signal” and T cell activation Memory T cell Scientific Hypothesis Induction of immunogenic cell death by Vicinium may facilitate a T cell-mediated anti-tumor response that could synergize with the ability of checkpoint inhibitors to relieve immunosuppression 24
The high somatic mutation rate in bladder cancer may lead to a better response to agents such as Vicinium that may stimulate T cell-mediated immune activation driven by neoantigens 25 Adapted from Zahir et al. Nature Medicine, 2017

Time to cystectomy: defined as the time from the date of first dose of study treatment to surgical bladder removal. Data reflected consist of patients from all cohorts 1, 2 & 3 (n=133). Note: Average time to cystectomy from transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) for NMIBC patients with high-risk papillary disease in Europe is ~105 days (National Institute of Health, Timing of radical cystectomy in Central Europe - multicenter study on factors influencing the time from diagnosis to radical treatment of bladder cancer patients, Poletajew S, et al., 2015.) Additional FDA guidance states that although delay in radical cystectomy is considered a direct patient benefit, the variations in patient and health care provider preferences can confound the 44 interpretation of this endpoint in randomized trials and particularly in single-arm trials. Nevertheless, sponsors should collect these data, which may provide supportive evidence of effectiveness.

Time to Cystectomy: Responders have an 88% probability of remaining PIII cystectomy-free 3 years after starting treatment All Cohorts 2018 FDA Guidance: The goal of therapy in patients with BCG-unresponsive NMIBC is to avoid cystectomy. • The average responder remains cystectomy-free for 1,035 days vs 631 days for non-responders (p = < 0.001) • No patient on treatment progressed to metastatic disease • We hypothesize that based on the state of the bladder, the Urologist decides whether a patient should go on additional treatment when they do not have a complete response to Vicinium. Patients who went on treatment post-Vicinium may represent those who had a partial response to Vicinium*, and this subgroup was approximately 4-fold less likely to go to cystectomy compared to patients who did not receive additional therapy. Patients undergoing cystectomy (%) Non-responders (n=56) 32% Responders (n=63) 10% Post-Vicinium No post-Vicinium treatment (n=33) treatment (n=23) 15%* 57% *In Phase 3, bladder mapping was not utilized, thus partial responses were not assessed.

Pipeline of Targeted Therapies We believe there is strong scientific rationale for Vicinium in combination with checkpoint inhibitors. Vicinium in combination with AstraZeneca’s anti-PD-L1, Imfinzi (durvalumab), is being evaluated in a Phase 1 study run by the National Cancer Institute. We have deferred further development of Vicinium for the treatment of SCCHN and VB6-845d in order to focus our efforts and our resources on our ongoing development of Vicinium for the treatment of high-risk NMIBC. We are also exploring collaborations for Vicinium for the treatment of SCCHN, and VB6-845d. 50 ETA, exotoxin A; IO, immuno-oncology agent

High-prescribing Urologists recognize the significant value across safety, MOA and efficacy “This is another bladder intravesical treatment available with an even lower risk of side effects than BCG and has a greater ability to prevent recurrence.” Safety & Tolerability “…the fact that it is specifically targeted towards cancer cells makes it seem as if potential adverse events that we would see with BCG would be much less likely with this product.” “It's a very directed therapy that targets the cancer cells... if you look at the clinical efficacy, it is certainly impressive in terms of the various outcomes.” Mechanism of Action “It’s a therapy that is enhancing your own immune system through cellular mediation, T cellular mediation, to attack the cancer cells and not injure the healthy cells.” “The things to me that were most impressive is that [the] efficacy data is reflecting patients who have already failed traditional therapy. So you’re taking the worst Efficacy possible patients and still showing significant efficacy…” “After patients have failed two courses of BCG, we have Valstar, but the data isn't even anywhere close to this data…” 55 Source: Sesen Bio Qualitative market research, Urologist In-depth Interviews (IDIs) June 2019, n = 30.

The Comparability Strategy for Vicinium has been accepted by the FDA* Guidance “If a manufacturer can provide assurance of comparability through analytical studies alone, nonclinical or clinical studies with the post-change product are not warranted.”1 Sesen’s analytical comparability plan is comprised of 4 key elements: 1. Analytical Release Testing • Assesses the purity, biological activity and general characteristics of the protein (e.g. purity by HPLC, endotoxin content) 2. Biophysical Characterization • Assesses the structural characteristics of the protein (e.g. Peptide Mapping, Differential Scanning Calorimetry) 3. Forced Degradation Studies • Assesses the degradation pathway of the protein when exposed to stress conditions (e.g. purity by HPLC after temperature and pH extremes) 4. Stability Studies • Assesses the stability of the protein under long-term and accelerated storage conditions (e.g. purity by HPLC after storage at -20°C and 2-8°C) *At the May 20, 2019, Type C CMC meeting, Sesen reached agreement with the FDA on the Analytical Comparability Plan. Subject to final comparability data to be provided in the BLA submission, no additional clinical trials to establish comparability are deemed necessary at this time. 1International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) Q5E, Comparability of biotechnological/biological products subject to changes in their manufacturing process. 65 HPLC, high performance liquid chromatography.
