/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. WIRE SERVICES/
Numinus Wellness Inc. (“Numinus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NUMI), a company creating an ecosystem of health solutions centred on developing and supporting the safe, evidence-based, accessible use of psychedelic-assisted therapies, is pleased to announce it has filed a final short form prospectus (the “Prospectus”) dated September 1, 2020 in connection with its previously announced best-efforts offering. The Prospectus offers up to 16,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the “Offering”) in the offering jurisdictions of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per common share for a period of two years from issuance. On closing of the Offering, the Warrants will be issued under a warrant indenture between the Company and Computershare Trust Company of Canada.
Mackie Research Capital Corporation (the “Agent“) has agreed to act as lead agent and sole bookrunner, on a best efforts basis, in respect of the Offering, and Numinus and the Agent have entered into an agency agreement in respect of the Offering. The Company has granted the Agent an option (the “Agent’s Option“) exercisable by delivering a written notice of its exercise of part or all of the Agent’s Option to the Company at any time up to 48 hours prior to Closing (the “Closing“) to increase the size of the Offering by up to 15% in Units.
The Prospectus contains important information relating to the Offering. For more information, potential investors should read the Prospectus, which is available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. There will not be any sale or acceptance of an offer to buy the Units until a receipt for a final Prospectus has been issued.
The Offering is expected to close on or about September 10, 2020 and is subject to customary closing conditions contained in the agency agreement. The Company has received conditional approval of the Offering from the TSX Venture Exchange, and for the listing of the common shares comprised within the Units, the common shares issuable on exercise of the Warrants and common shares associated with compensation to the Agent. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for MDMA and psilocybin Compassionate Access protocol implementation, to make these drugs accessible to specific patient groups before they are available on the market, as more particularly described in the Prospectus. Additional funds will be used to secure therapy space and develop psychedelic integrative treatment models, support upgrades to its Lab infrastructure to support its Health Canada licences, and for general operating expenses, as more particularly described in the Prospectus.
Numinus is a Vancouver-based health care company creating an ecosystem of health solutions centred around developing and supporting the safe, evidence-based, accessible use of psychedelic-assisted therapies. Numinus‘s ecosystem units include Numinus Bioscience, Numinus R&D, and Numinus Health. Each unit is undertaking distinct, synergistic initiatives to hasten approved access to psychedelic-assisted therapy models in Canada and position Numinus as a trusted industry leader for the eventual regulated rollout of these therapies once available. Numinus Bioscience includes a 7,000 square foot research and testing laboratory as well as numerous Health Canada licenses (through its wholly owned subsidiary Salvation Botanicals), including a cannabis testing license which provides established and growing revenue. It is also a late-stage applicant for cannabis processing. Additionally, the Company holds a dealer’s licence which allows it to import, export, possess, and test MDMA, psilocybin, psilocin, DMT, and mescaline, and it is the first publicly listed company in Canada to be issued a Health Canada license to produce and extract psilocybin from mushrooms for the purpose of developing proprietary extraction methods. These licences will allow Numinus to support the growing number of studies on the potential benefits of psychedelic therapies through research projects, product development, and the supply and distribution of these substances. Numinus R&D leverages established relationships to position the Company for partnerships to host studies, develop medical and therapeutic protocols, and influence regulatory approval. Numinus Health, with one clinic already prototyping systems for efficiency and profitability, is dedicated to delivering therapies that enhance and supplement existing options—centred around psychedelic-assisted therapies when and where regulated—for people wanting lasting physical, mental, and emotional health.
