THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO OR FROM ANY JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION

PureTech Health plc (“PureTech” or the “Company”) (LSE: PRTC), an advanced, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing differentiated medicines for serious diseases involving the Brain-Immune-Gut (BIG) axis, today announces that it is exploring the potential for a listing on Nasdaq in the United States of American Depository Shares (“ADSs”) representing ordinary shares in the Company through a registered initial public offering in the United States (the “US Listing”). The US Listing would be expected to include an issue of new ordinary shares underlying the ADSs. The terms of any US Listing have not yet been determined and there can be no assurance as to the timing or completion of any US Listing.  The Company intends that the potential US Listing would be in addition to the Company’s premium listing on the Official List of the UK Financial Conduct Authority and trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

A further announcement will be made by PureTech if and when appropriate.
