Effectiveness of Reverse Share Split 
On December 20, 2022, MediWound Ltd. (“MediWound” or the “Company”) effected the previously-announced reverse share split of its ordinary shares at a ratio of 1-for-7 (the “Reverse Share Split”), which was disclosed in MediWound’s Report of Foreign Private Issuer on Form 6-K (a “Form 6-K”), furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 5, 2022. The Reverse Share Split reduced the number of outstanding ordinary shares of the Company as well as the authorized number of ordinary shares in the same 1-for-7 proportion. As a result, the authorized number of ordinary shares has been reduced from 90,000,000 ordinary shares to 12,857,143 ordinary shares, whereas the par value of the ordinary shares has increased proportionately, from NIS 0.01 per share to NIS 0.07 per share, thereby maintaining the Company’s overall authorized share capital. All shareholders who would have been entitled to receive a fractional number of shares as a result of the Reverse Share Split received, in lieu thereof, a whole number of shares, after rounding up.

The trading symbol for the Company’s ordinary shares on the Nasdaq Global Market following the Reverse Share Split remains “MDWD”. The ordinary shares were assigned a new CUSIP number— M68830 112. The newly issued shares under the Reverse Share Split will begin trading on a reverse split-adjusted basis upon the open of the market on December 20, 2022. American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the Company’s transfer agent, is acting as the exchange agent for the Reverse Share Split.

Due to the effectiveness of the Reverse Share Split, the Company has adjusted the number of shares available for grants under its equity incentive plans, including the number of ordinary shares underlying outstanding awards, the exercise price per ordinary share (in the case of outstanding options) and other terms of outstanding awards. The Company has amended its Amended and Restated Articles of Association to effect the Reverse Share Split. The Reverse Share Split impacted all shareholders uniformly and did not alter any person’s percentage interest in the Company’s outstanding ordinary shares, except for negligible adjustments due to the treatment of fractional shares.

For additional information concerning the Reverse Share Split, the rationale that supported it, and its potential impact upon your investment in MediWound and on the market for MediWound’s ordinary shares generally, please see the “Background” to Proposal 3 in the proxy statement for the Company’s extraordinary general meeting of shareholders held on November 28, 2022, which notice and proxy statement were attached as Exhibit 99.1 to MediWound’s Form 6-K furnished to the SEC on October 21, 2022.
