Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW) (OTCQB: SIXWF) (FSE: AHUH) ("Sixth Wave" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its board of directors has approved the settlement of $1,804,929 of debt held by founders of the Company, Dr. Jonathan Gluckman, President & CEO and Mr. Sherman McGill, Executive Vice-President, through the issuance of common shares of the Company (the "Debt Settlement").

Pursuant to the Debt Settlement Agreement, the Company will issue 4,849,674 common shares at a deemed price of $0.30 per common share. The common shares will be subject to a voluntary hold period such that 1/8th of the common shares to be issued will be released from the hold every 3 months (after an initial 4-month statutory hold period) over 24 months.

This Debt Settlement is part of the Company's efforts to reduce cash burn and ensure the Company is positioned to allocate resources to accelerating operational progress. Settlement of this debt will result in a large reduction in expenditures over the next 12 months.

"I am pleased to convert my debt into equity as I believe in the technology and the Company's growth," stated Jonathan Gluckman, President and CEO.

Also noted by David Fransen, Director, on behalf of the Board of Directors; "Over the past year, I have come to know Jon and Sherman's commitment to Sixth Wave and their determination to make it a great success. Jon and Sherman, agreeing to do this gives me, and other directors, tremendous confidence that they believe in the Company and are willing to continue to invest their abilities to grow the Company."

As the common shares will be issued to insiders of the Company, the Debt Settlement is considered to be a related party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Full details of the common share issuance will be on the System for Electronic Disclosure by Insiders ("SEDI"). All of the independent directors of the Company, acting in good faith, considered the transactions and have determined that the fair market value of the common shares being issued and the consideration being paid is reasonable. The Debt Settlement is exempt from formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the debt or common shares exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization. No new insiders nor control persons were created as a result of the Debt Settlement. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Debt Settlement as the details of the Debt Settlement were not finalized until closer to the closing date of the transaction, and the Company wanted to close the transaction as soon as possible as part of broader efforts to reduce liabilities on the balance sheet.

Cybin Announces Up to USD$35 Million At-The-Market Equity Program

Cybin Inc. ( NEO: CYBN ) (NYSE American: CYBN) (" Cybin " or the " Company "), a biopharmaceutical company focused on progressing "Psychedelics to Therapeutics TM ", announced today that it has established an at-the-market equity program (the " ATM Program ") that allows Cybin to issue and sell up to USD$35,000,0000 of common shares (" Shares ") in the capital of the Company from treasury to the public, from time to time, through the Agents (as defined below). All Shares sold under the ATM Program will be sold in transactions that are deemed to be "at-the-market" distributions as defined in National Instrument 44-102 Shelf Distributions directly through the Neo Exchange Inc. (the " NEO Exchange "), the NYSE American LLC or any other "marketplace" (as defined in National Instrument 21-101 Marketplace Operation) upon which the Shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded, at the prevailing market price at the time of sale. Cybin intends to use the net proceeds from sales of Shares under the ATM Program, if any, for growth opportunities and working capital initiatives.

Distributions of Shares under the ATM Program, if any, will be made pursuant to the terms and conditions of an "at-the-market equity" distribution agreement (the " Distribution Agreement ") dated August 8, 2022 that the Company entered into with Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.

The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program, if any, will be determined in Cybin's sole discretion and in accordance with the Distribution Agreement. As any Shares distributed under the ATM Program will be issued and sold at the prevailing market price at the time of the applicable sale, prices may vary among purchasers through the duration of the ATM Program. The completion of sales of Shares under the ATM Program will be subject to customary closing conditions, including the listing of such Shares on the Neo Exchange and the NYSE American LLC, and any required approvals of each exchange.
