OncoGenex Announces Relocation of Corporate Headquarters, Expected to Yield Savings of at Least $4 Million Over Next Three Years

BOTHELL, WA., & VANCOUVER, BC – February 12, 2015 — OncoGenex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: OGXI) today announced that it has executed new lease agreements enabling the relocation of its Bothell, Washington headquarters.

Effective March 1, 2015, OncoGenex’ new corporate headquarters will be located at 19820 North Creek Parkway, approximately three miles from the Company’s current location.

“Early termination of our prior lease provides us with the opportunity to relocate at a considerable cost savings,” said Scott Cormack, President and CEO of OncoGenex. “Additionally, given the proximity to our current location, we expect the move will limit disruption to our business and allow us to stay focused on our priority of developing treatments for advanced cancer patients.”

The final lease agreements were executed on Feb. 11, 2015, and are subject to certain closing conditions. Additional details can be found in the Company’s Form 8-K filed today and available at http://ir.oncogenex.com/.
