The reverse stock split will take effect at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time) on March 21, 2024, and the Company’s common stock will open for trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market on March 22, 2024 on a post-split basis, under the existing ticker symbol “MBRX” but with a new CUSIP number 60855D309.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional share will be entitled to the rounding up of the fractional share to the nearest whole number.

As a result of the reverse stock split, the number of shares of common stock outstanding will be reduced from approximately 33.4 million shares to approximately 2.2 million shares, and the number of authorized shares of common stock will remain at 100 million shares. In addition, the number of shares reserved for issuance under the Company’s equity compensation plan immediately prior to the reverse stock split will be reduced proportionately.
