VANCOUVER, BC, February 27, 2024 — ME Therapeutics Holdings Inc. (“ME Therapeutics” or the “Company”) (CSE: METX) (FSE: Q9T), a preclinical stage biotechnology company working on novel cancer fighting drugs in the field of Immuno-Oncology, is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing to raise gross proceeds of up to $1,550,000 (the “Offering”) and to provide an update on the status of its current research and development programs.

The Offering is expected to consist of up 1,550,000 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $1.00 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of up to $1,550,000. The Company confirms that the Offering Price was reserved confidentially on January 31, 2024 pursuant to section 6.2(4) of Policy 6 of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange”).

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $1.50 per Share for a period of two years from closing of the Offering, subject to an acceleration provision whereby the expiry date of the Warrants may be accelerated if the daily trading price of the Shares equals or exceeds $2.00 on the Exchange (or such other exchange on which the Shares may then be traded) for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days in which event the Company may in its discretion accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice via news release and, in such case, the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which the news release is disseminated.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after closing of the Offering. No finder’s fees are expected to be paid in connection with the Offering. Completion of the Offering remains subject to certain conditions, including confirmation of no objection from the Exchange.

The aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the Offering are expected to be used for funding ongoing research and development of the Company’s technology, regulatory review and approvals, potential in-licensing or partnerships, operating expenses, investor relations and other working capital requirements.

None of the securities sold in connection with the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

At the request of CIRO, the Company’s management confirms that, other than the Offering, it is unaware of any material change in the Company’s operations that would account for the recent increase in market activity. The Company continues to pursue research and development of its G-CSF antibody candidate, myeloid prodrug candidate and novel LNP formulation as previously disclosed in the Company’s corporate update news release dated January 25, 2024.
