  a. Company description:


Can-Fite Biopharma Ltd. (the “Company”) was incorporated and started to operate in September 1994 as a private Israeli company. Can-Fite is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing orally bioavailable small molecule therapeutic products for the treatment of psoriasis, liver cancer, NASH and erectile dysfunction. Its platform technology utilizes the Gi protein associated A3AR as a therapeutic target. A3AR is highly expressed in patholological body cells such as inflammatory and cancer cells, and has a low expression in normal cells, suggesting that the receptor could be a specific target for pharmacological intervention. The Company’s pipeline of drug candidates are synthetic, highly specific agonists and allosteric modulators at the A3AR.


The Company’s ordinary shares have been publicly traded on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange since October 2005 under the symbol “CFBI” and the Company’s American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) began public trading on the over the counter market in the U.S. in October 2012 and since November 2013 the Company’s ADSs have been publicly traded on the NYSE American under the symbol “CANF”. Each ADS represents 30 ordinary shares of the Company.


  b. During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company incurred net losses of USD 12,615 and it had negative cash flows from operating activities in the amount of USD 9,858.


Furthermore, the Company intends to continue to finance its operating activities by raising capital and seeking collaborations with multinational companies in the industry. There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in obtaining an adequate level of financing needed for its long-term research and development activities.


If the Company will not have sufficient liquidity resources, the Company may not be able to continue the development of all of its products or may be required to implement a cost reduction and may be required to delay part of its development programs. The Company’s management and board of directors are of the opinion that its current financial resources will be sufficient to continue the development of the Company’s products for at least the next twelve months beyond the date of the filing date of the consolidated financial statements.
