About Cortendo

Cortendo AB is a global biopharmaceutical company incorporated in Sweden and based in the United States. The Company’s strategic focus is to be the global leader in developing and commercializing products at the intersection of Orphan Diseases and Endocrinology Disorders. Cortendo aims to become the leader in the field of cortisol inhibition, with the lead drug candidate, NormoCort (COR-003), in a Phase 3 global clinical trial for the treatment of Cushing’s Syndrome. The company’s intent is to independently commercialize its Orphan/Endocrine assets in key global markets, and when necessary, partner non-strategic product opportunities, such as diabetes, at relevant development stages.

Risk and uncertainty

The development of pharmaceuticals carries significant risk. Failure may occur at any stage during development and commercialization due to safety or clinical efficacy issues. Delays may occur due to requirements from regulatory authorities, difficulties in recruiting patients into clinical trials due to physician or patient preferences or competing products, not anticipated by the company. There is no assurance that Cortendo will receive marketing and regulatory approvals necessary to commercialize or produce NormoCort (COR-003) or other products. Regulatory approvals may be denied, delayed, limited or revoked.

The commercial success of NormoCort (COR-003), if approved in a territory, cannot be predicted with certainty. In addition, Cortendo may face the risk of interrupted supply of NormoCort (COR-003) for clinical or commercial use from the subcontractors Cortendo has contracted.
