Michael S. Weiss, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are excited to have four abstracts accepted for presentation at the upcoming ASH conference highlighting data from two registration directed trials, the UNITY-CLL Phase 3 trial of ublituximab in combination with umbralisib (U2) in CLL, and the UNITY-NHL MZL and FL/SLL umbralisib monotherapy cohorts. Our NDA for umbralisib monotherapy for previously treated MZL and FL is currently under review, and we are actively preparing a BLA/NDA submission for the U2 combination for CLL to be submitted in the coming months based on the results of the UNITY-CLL Phase 3 study. Demonstrating the potential to build upon these backbone regimens, there will also be two triple therapy datasets presented, one with U2 plus TG-1701, our BTK inhibitor; and one with U2 plus venetoclax in CLL. We look forward to the abstracts being released publicly on November 5 at 9 AM ET and to reviewing the exciting data on a conference call that morning."

ABOUT TG THERAPEUTICS, INC.TG Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of novel treatments for B-cell malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Currently, the company is in late stage clinical development with two investigational compounds, ublituximab and umbralisib, the combination of which is referred to as "U2", targeting hematological malignancies and autoimmune diseases. Ublituximab (TG-1101) is a glycoengineered monoclonal antibody that targets a specific and unique epitope on the CD20 antigen found on mature B-lymphocytes. Umbralisib (TGR-1202) is an oral, once-daily dual inhibitor of PI3K-delta and CK1-epsilon. Umbralisib is currently under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for accelerated approval as a treatment for patients with previously treated marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) who have received at least one prior anti-CD20 based regimen or follicular lymphoma (FL) who have received at least two prior systemic therapies. The Company also has a fully enrolled Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating U2 in patients with treatment naïve and relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and two fully enrolled identical Phase 3 trials evaluating ublituximab monotherapy in patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (RMS). Additionally, the Company has recently brought into Phase 1 clinical development its anti-PD-L1 monoclonal antibody, cosibelimab (TG-1501), its covalently-bound Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitor, TG-1701, as well as its anti-CD47/CD19 bispecific antibody, TG-1801. TG Therapeutics is headquartered in New York City. Cautionary Statement This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties.
