Kane Biotech Announces Private Placement Offering and Proposed Consolidation of Shares

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - June 2, 2016) - Kane Biotech Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KNE) (the "Company" or "Kane Biotech") today announced the intention of the Company to undertake a non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") of up to 50,000,000 common shares ("Common Shares") at a price of $0.03 per Common Share for gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for development and marketing of the Company's products and for general working capital.

Due to the fact that the Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering are being issued at a price lower than $0.05 per share, the Company is required to obtain a waiver from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") to proceed with the Offering. In order to obtain the waiver from the Exchange, the Company has agreed to seek the approval of its shareholders for a consolidation of the Common Shares on a five to one basis (the "Consolidation") within six months of the closing of the Offering. The Company is confident that it will receive shareholder approval for the Consolidation as it has received undertakings from holders of more than 50% of the current outstanding Common Shares that they will support the Consolidation. If the Company is successful in obtaining shareholder approval for the Consolidation, it will immediately proceed with the Consolidation.

The closing of Offering remains subject to receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About Kane Biotech Inc.

Kane Biotech is a biotechnology company engaged in the development and commercialization of products that prevent and remove biofilms. Biofilms develop when bacteria and other microorganisms form a protective matrix that acts as a shield against attack. When in a biofilm, bacteria become highly resistant to antibiotics, biocides, disinfectants, high temperatures and host immune responses. This resiliency contributes to human health problems such as recurrent urinary tract infections, medical device associated infections and tooth decay.

Kane Biotech uses patent protected technologies based on molecular mechanisms of biofilm formation/dispersal and methods for finding compounds that inhibit or disrupt biofilms. The Company has evidence that these technologies have potential to significantly improve the ability to prevent and/or destroy biofilms in several medical and industrial applications.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
