HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES

Immunovaccine Inc. ("Immunovaccine" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IMV) announced today that, in light of current market conditions, it has determined not to proceed with its previously announced overnight marketed public offering of common shares at this time and is withdrawing its preliminary short form prospectus previously filed on May 6, 2014. The Company does not intend, as well, to move forward with the contemplated concurrent private placement of common shares.

Albert Scardino, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Immunovaccine stated: "While there was interest from new investors and key current shareholders indicated their continued support for the Company, the board of directors considered that the proposed terms of the offering were not in the best long-term interest of the Company. We sincerely appreciate the support of our long-term shareholders."
