“We are incredibly pleased to add a strategic institutional investor, who has been very active in deploying capital in novel psychedelic drug development companies, to participate in this round of financing, joining our broader investor base in advancing our novel drug discovery platform, said MYND Life Sciences CEO Dr. Lyle Oberg This capital will enable the Company to accelerate the commercialization of its diagnostic biomarker division in addition to helping advance MYND’s various clinical trials which are expected to commence in Q4 of this year”.
Each Debenture Unit consists of (i) $1,000 principal amount of senior unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures“); and (ii) common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants“) exercisable for 1,000 common shares in the Company (“Shares“).

Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share (a “Warrant Share“) in the capital of the Company at a price of $1.00 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Debentures will be issued at a discount equal to 10% of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures.
The Company may force the conversion of all of the principal amount of the then outstanding Debentures at the Conversion Price prior to the Maturity Date, if the daily volume weighted average trading price (“VWAP“) of the Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “Exchange“) is greater than a 50% premium to the Conversion Price for any 15 trading days during any period of 30 consecutive trading days.
