Arix Bioscience plc (LSE:ARIX) ("Arix"), a global healthcare and life science

company supporting medical innovation, today notes that its largest Group Business holding Autolus Therapeutics Limited (to be reorganised as Autolus Therapeutics plc) ("Autolus") has filed an amended registration statement on Form F-1 with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") relating to a proposed initial public offering in the United States of its American Depositary Shares ("ADSs"), each ADS representing one ordinary share.

The registration statement discloses an indicative pricing range for the proposed offering of U.S.$15.00 - U.S.$17.00 per ADS.

Arix has indicated an interest in purchasing ADSs in the offering, subject to agreement with the underwriters.

The registration statement can be accessed through the SEC's EDGAR database.
