This Amendment to the Report on Form 6-K originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 29, 2023 (the “Form 6-K”), is being filed solely for the purpose of correcting an error in the description of the discretionary annual bonus of “between 120-360%” of annual base salary cited in the third sentence of the third paragraph, which is corrected by this filing to be “between 10-30%”. This Form 6-K/A amends and restates in its entirety the “Executive Management Changes” description of the original Form 6-K. Other than the correction to the bonus percentage, the remainder of the original Form 6-K remains unchanged.

In a Press Release dated August 29, 2023, Evaxion Biotech, A/S (the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company specializing in the development of AI-driven immunotherapies, announced certain executive management changes.

In accordance with the terms of Mr. Kanstrup’s employment agreement with the Company entered into on August 29, 2023, Mr. Kanstrup will receive an annual base salary of DKK 2,400,000 (approximately USD$348,002 based on the current exchange rate of USD$1.00 = DKK6.8965 on August 25, 2023), plus Warrants to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s ordinary shares DKK 1 nominal value (the “Ordinary Shares”), with an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s American Depositary Shares representing Ordinary Shares on the date of grant thereof, which will be the start date of Mr. Kanstrup’s employment with the Company. Such Warrants will be subject to the Company’s standard terms and conditions and will vest in equal monthly installments of 1/36th per month over three years from the date of grant. In addition, at the full discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors, Mr. Kanstrup may receive an annual bonus of between 10-30% of his annual base salary.
