VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2023 — Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (“Mydecine” or the “Company”) (CSE:MYCO) (AQSE:MYIG) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA) a biotechnology company engineering the next wave of innovative medications and treatment protocols to directly address mental health with a particular emphasis on addiction and PTSD, is pleased to announce that, in connection with: (i) its previously announced Common Share Subscription Agreement (the “Opensky Subscription Agreement”) with OpenSky Opportunities Fund Ltd. (“Opensky”) dated 10 March 2023; and (ii) a Common Share Subscription Agreement dated 25 October 2023 (the “Standalone Subscription Agreement”, and collectively with the Opensky Subscription Agreement, the “Subscription Agreements”) between the Company and an arms-length investor (the “Standalone Investor” and collectively with Opensky, the “Investors”), the Company has filed a shelf prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to the Company’s Final Short Form Base Shelf Prospectus for the province of Québec and Amended and Restated Final Short Form Base Shelf Prospectus for each of the provinces of Canada, dated 28 January 2022 (together, the “Shelf Prospectus”).
The Prospectus Supplement provides, among other things, that the Company is qualifying the distribution of up to 7,360,000 common shares (each a “Share”) in the capital of the Company to the Investors under the Subscription Agreements at a price of $0.15 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,104,000.
The Company also announces today the closing of Share issuances under the Subscription Agreements (the “Offerings”). The Offerings resulted in the issuance of 7,360,000 Shares at a price of $0.15 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,104,000. The distribution of such Shares is qualified by the Prospectus Supplement. The Company will use the proceeds of the Offering as described in the Prospectus Supplement.
An application will be made to the Aquis Stock Exchange (“Aquis”) for the 7,360,000 new Shares to be admitted to trading. Admission is expected to take place, and dealings on Aquis in the Shares are expected to commence, at 08:00 on or around 3 November 2023.
Following Admission, the Company will have 52,567,458 Ordinary Shares in issue. Since the Company currently holds no shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company will therefore be 52,567,458. These figures may therefore be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
The Prospectus Supplement and Base Shelf Prospectus are available on the Company website and on the Company’s profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR+) at www.sedarplus.ca.
About Mydecine Innovations Group Inc.
Mydecine Innovations Group is a publicly traded, pre-revenue biopharmaceutical company that began operations in North America and Europe in early 2020. Mydecine was founded to increase physicians’ access to serotonin-modulating medicine. Recent research has demonstrated the therapeutic potential of psychedelic substances such as psilocybin and MDMA for treating intractable conditions such as pain, anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD, along with neurodegenerative disorders. Mydecine believes these compounds can be safer, more effective, and more accessible for patients and medical professionals through modern drug chemistry paired with artificial intelligence (AI). Through its exclusive partnership with Applied Pharmaceutical Innovation based at the University of Alberta, Mydecine is developing innovative medications for target indications with high mortality rates that have lacked innovation for decades and are controlled by dominant corporations. Mydecine developed several prodrug families, beginning with a psilocybin-derived smoking cessation drug undergoing a NIDA-funded trial at Johns Hopkins University. Mydecine is also developing MYCO-006—short-acting chemical analogs derived from MDMA for treating various conditions, including anxiety and pain. Mydecine utilises cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and pharma research infrastructure at the University of Alberta to develop and manufacture new medications to make them affordable and accessible to the general public upon Health Canada and FDA approval. The Mydecine team is enthusiastic about its mission and is dedicated to creating a positive difference in the lives of others.
The Directors of Mydecine take responsibility for this announcement.
