17 Positive US and European Regulatory CMC Feedback FDA Feedback May 2019 Type C and December 2019 Type B pre-BLA meeting: FDA Accepts Analytical Comparability Plan • Reached alignment with FDA on primary objective of meeting: acceptance of analytical comparability plan for commercial supply of Vicineum • No additional clinical trials deemed necessary at this time, subject to final comparability data to be included in the BLA EMA Feedback May 2020: CHMP Issues CMC Advice for Vicineum • CHMP agreed that the CMC comparability plan provides a strong analytical package, and no additional clinical trials to establish comparability are deemed necessary at this time • CHMP agreed to accept the GMP inspections conducted by the FDA Our analytical comparability plan is aligned with global standards issued by the ICH and feedback from the FDA and EMA ICH=The International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use; CHMP=Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use


 
18 Commercial Manufacturing Strategy Based on Demonstrating Comparability The analytical comparability plan is comprised of 4 key elements: 1. Analytical Release Testing • Assesses the purity, biological activity and general characteristics of Vicineum 2. Biophysical Characterization • Assesses the structural characteristics of Vicineum 3. Forced Degradation Studies • Assesses the degradation pathway of Vicineum when exposed to stress conditions 4. Stability Studies • Assesses the stability of Vicineum at accelerated and long-term storage temperatures Drug Substance Sesen FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies (CMO) Drug Product Sesen Baxter (CMO) Clinical Supply Commercial Supply We aligned with the FDA on assessing analytical comparability in support of approval for commercial manufacturing at our CMOs

38 Vicineum 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 Immunogenic cell death activates a T cell-mediated immune response to attack the tumor Selectively targets EpCAM to destroy cancer cells by immunogenic cell death Based on preclinical studies, we believe Vicineum works via a dual mechanism of action.

Partial response, as measured by bladder mapping, is defined by non-complete response patients who had either a reduction in tumor size or did not experience an increase in bladder area affected. Bladder mapping was not done as part of the Phase III trial, therefore partial response data are not available.

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 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.

60 High-Level Overview of Planned Confirmatory Trial Successful in alignment with the FDA on the design of the post-marketing confirmatory trial for Vicineum Key Elements The confirmatory trial will enroll BCG-refractory patients who received less-than-adequate BCG* • This represents a broader patient population than the originally proposed BCG-intolerant population • If the trial is successful, labeling is expected to be expanded to include this additional patient population The trial is expected to be powered to demonstrate the superior efficacy of Vicineum vs. currently utilizedtherapies • Primary endpoints expected to include complete response rate and duration of response • Secondary endpoints expected to include quality of life, survival and safety assessments, as well as an evaluation of a delayed complete response** • These data are expected to contribute to favorable reimbursement discussions worldwide * Adequate BCG is defined by the FDA as at least 5 doses in an initial induction course, plus at least 2 doses in a second course ** In post-hoc analyses requested by the FDA, Vicineum was shown to demonstrate a delayed CR in some patients who were non-CR at 3 months

63 Pipeline of Targeted Therapies We believe there is strong scientific rationale for Vicineum in combination with checkpoint inhibitors. Vicineum in combination with AstraZeneca’s anti-PD-L1, Imfinzi (durvalumab), is being evaluated in a Phase 1 trial run by the National Cancer Institute. We have deferred further development of Vicineum, for the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN), and VB6-845d in order to focus our efforts and resources on our ongoing development of Vicineum for the treatment of high-risk NMIBC. We are also exploring collaborations for Vicineum, for the treatment of SCCHN, and VB6-845d.

69 1Q 2020 Market Research Results Reasons Urologists Prefer Vicineum Profile • Urologists strongly prefer to retain ownership of patient journey – High degree of reluctance to refer to Medical Oncologists – Fear of losing follow-up diagnostics with patient after treatment referral • Urologists perceive favorable product profile for Vicineum – Comparable efficacy and favorable safety/tolerability relative to Keytruda profile – Compelling time-to-cystectomy data • Urologists perceive administration of Vicineum as highly consistent with office operations – Vicineum administration protocol is identical to BCG – Many Urologists are less familiar with the side effects of intravenous chemotherapy • Urologists perceive negative psychological effects of intravenous therapy on patients – Stigma of seeing an Oncologist/going to large academic medical center – Patient perception of more advanced disease (e.g. terminal patients) Source: Emerging treatment IDIs with high BCG-treating Urologists, 1Q 2020, N=34 This slide is intended for market research purposes only and is not intended for marketing purposes.
