Cybin Announces CDN$20 Million Bought Deal Offering
January 18th, 2021
Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) (“Cybin” or the “Company“), a life sciences company focused on psychedelic pharmaceutical therapies, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. (“Canaccord” or the “Lead Underwriter“) on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord (together, with the Lead Underwriter, the “Underwriters“), pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a “bought deal” basis, 8,900,000 units of the Company (the “Units“) at a price of CDN$2.25 per Unit (the “Issue Price“), for aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$20,025,000 (the “Offering“).
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share“) for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering (the “Closing“) at an exercise price of CDN$3.25 per Warrant Share. In the event that the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares for ten (10) consecutive trading days exceeds CDN$5.00, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants upon not less than thirty (30) trading days’ notice.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to advance its clinical trials, novel molecule programs and technologies surrounding the patient experience, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the “Over-Allotment Option“), exercisable in whole or in part at any time on or up to 30 days after the closing of the Offering, to purchase, or to find substituted purchasers for, up to an additional 1,335,000 Units at the Issue Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes. In the event that the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in its entirety, the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be CDN$23,028,750.
The Underwriters are to be paid a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (3% on president’s list investors) and to receive Unit purchase warrants of the Company (the “Underwriters’ Warrants“) equal to 6% (3% on president’s list investors) of the number of Units sold under the Offering, with each Underwriters’ Warrant being exercisable to acquire one Unit at the Issue Price for a period of 36 months from the Closing.
“We are pleased to announce this financing, which bolsters Cybin’s cash position and supports the expansion of our development programs,” stated Doug Drysdale, Chief Executive Officer of Cybin. “We want to thank our existing shareholders for their continued support, and welcome new shareholders who share our vision for psychedelic drug development programs and their potential for the treatment of major depressive disorder as well as additional indications.”
The Units will be offered by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in each of the Provinces of Canada, other than Quebec, pursuant to National Instrument 44-101 Short Form Prospectus Distributions and by private placement to eligible purchasers resident in jurisdictions other than Canada that are mutually agreed by the Company and the Lead Underwriter, provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises and the Company does not therefore become subject to continuous disclosure obligations in such jurisdiction.
Closing is scheduled to occur on or about February 4, 2021 (the “Closing Date“), and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Neo Exchange Inc. (the “NEO Exchange“) and the securities regulatory authorities, and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.
