(TSX VENTURE:COT) (OTCQB:COTQF) ("COTI" or the "Company") the biopharmaceutical company that uses machine learning to rapidly develop targeted therapies, completed the third tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement with the issuance of 3,054,000 units (the "Units") at a price of USD $0.23 per Unit for gross Canadian dollar proceeds of approximately $793,000. In aggregate, the Company raised gross Canadian proceeds from the offering of approximately $2,629,000 through the sale of 10,177,760 Units.

"We are appreciative of the level of investor support during this critical and transformational period for the Company," said John Drake, Chairman of the Board. "This financing will support our ongoing operations as we continue to advance COTI-2 towards a Phase 1 clinical trial in gynecological cancers at the MD Anderson Cancer Centre in early 2015, which we believe will be a major risk reduction and value creating event."

"We believe COTI-2 is poised to make a dramatic change in the treatment of ovarian and other gynecological cancers where there is a p53 gene mutation present," said Dr. Wayne Danter, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have made excellent progress over the past 24 months and are eager to move COTI-2 into the clinic. This funding will also support our efforts to extend the COTI-2 franchise to patients afflicted by other cancer indications with p53 mutations such as head and neck cancers."
