Adaptimmune’s Virtual Investor Day will cover the following topics:

Opening Remarks by Adrian Rawcliffe, CEO
* Strategic vision for Adaptimmune and core value drivers for the next five
* Delivering TCR T-cell therapies and building the cell therapy company of the
* MAGE-A4 is a target with large market potential across a broad range of
solid tumor indications including synovial sarcoma, lung, head and neck,
bladder, and gastroesophageal cancers
Synovial sarcoma care: the need for cell therapy
* Dejka Araujo, M.D. (Professor in the Department of Sarcoma Medical Oncology,
Division of Cancer Medicine of the MD Anderson Cancer Center) will discuss the

Driving towards delivery of two marketed products and two further BLAs by 2025
* An overview of plans to launch the first TCR T-cell therapy (ADP-A2M4) in
synovial sarcoma as enrollment in the SPEARHEAD-1 trial is on track
* Plan to file a BLA with ADP-A2M4D8 in gastroesophageal cancers in 2024
* Potential addressable population across all tumor types with significant
MAGE-A4 expression of ~39,000 patients per year in the US and EU factored for
HLA-A2(1); additional BLA(s) projected with ADP-A2M4CD8 in tumor types beyond
gastroesophageal cancers
* Additional BLA projected for ADP-A2AFP (first or next-generation CD8α) with
a potential market opportunity of ~16,000 patients per year based on serum AFP
expression(1) and factoring for HLA-A2 * Plan to incorporate next-generation
CD8α enhancement into SPEAR T-cells targeting AFP in a clinical trial next
The importance of building an integrated cell therapy company for rapid
execution and success
* An overview of the Company’s integrated structure with its leading

including: * ADP-A2M4 SPEAR T-cells co-expressing IL-7, IL-15, dnTGFβ, and/
or PDE7
* Enhancing SPEAR T-cells with IL-7 for proliferation and survival and CCL19
for migration into tumor in collaboration with Noile-Immune
* Enhancing SPEAR T-cells using transmembrane and surface immunoregulatory
mechanisms with Alpine Immune Sciences
* Focusing on enabling mainstream access – broadening patient coverage and
patient access: * Plans to expand into HLAs beyond A2 to increase the
addressable patient population
* Bringing forward HiT candidates for multiple targets including GPC3
* Announcing collaboration with leading TIL therapy center (CCIT, Denmark) for
nextgeneration TILs co-expressing IL-7
* Bringing two allogeneic targets into the clinic: * In-house MAGE A4 targeted
iPSC T-cell products
* Mesothelin, a target expressed in multiple solid tumors, named as first HiT
target in partnership with Astellas
An update on the Company’s financial position
* Total liquidity position of $400 million as of September 30, 2020
