Lobe Sciences Ltd. (CSE: LOBE) (OTC Pink: GTSIF) (“Lobe” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has upsized its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units (the “Units”) from $2,000,000 to up to $2,700,000 (the “Offering”) and has completed a first closing raising gross proceeds of $2,327,100 (the “First Tranche Closing”). The First Tranche Closing consisted of the issuance of an aggregate of 23,271,000 Units at a price of $0.10 per Unit.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Share“) and one share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the subscriber to acquire one additional Share at a price of $0.25 per Warrant for a period of two years from the applicable closing date, subject to an accelerated expiry provision described herein. If on any 10 consecutive trading days occurring after four months and one day has elapsed following the final closing date of the Offering, the closing price of the Shares (or the closing bid, if no sales were reported on a trading day) as quoted on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE“) is greater than $0.35 per Share, Lobe may provide notice in writing to the holders of the Warrants by issuance of a news release that the expiry date of the Warrants will be accelerated to the 30th day after the date on which Lobe issues such news release. No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the First Tranche Closing.


The closing of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, approval of the Offering by the CSE. The Offering may be closed in one or more tranches. The Company may pay finders fees to eligible finders.

Lobe CEO Tom Baird said, “This is a very exciting time in the industry and the significant interest in Lobe Sciences shown in this private placement is great validation of our strategy and support for the entire Lobe team. This funding will allow us to continue development of our devices, further our pre-clinical studies, as well as support other Company growth initiatives. We are pleased to welcome our new strategic shareholders and would like to thank our existing shareholders for their continued support of the Company.”

Proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used to fund the Company’s existing business operations, preclinical studies with N-Acetylcysteine and psilocybin, device development/engineering, general working capital, marketing and costs of the Offering. Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering as described above, the actual allocation of proceeds may vary from the uses set out above depending on future operations, events or opportunities.

The Shares and Warrants comprising the Units issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period from the date of issue in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. None of the Units will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and none may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of the Company, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
