Phivida Announces Acceleration of Expiry Date of Warrants

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 24, 2018) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE:VIDA)(CSE:VIDA.CN)(CNSX:VIDA) ("Phivida" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has elected to exercise its right under the warrant indenture (the "Indenture") governing the common share purchase warrants of the Company (the "Warrants") issued on December 15, 2017. Pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants when the closing price of the common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") on the Canadian Securities Exchange exceeds $1.00 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days (the "Acceleration Event").

Phivida is pleased to confirm that an Acceleration Event occurred as of January 17, 2018. Accordingly, the Company has chosen to accelerate the expiry time of the Warrants to 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on February 13, 2018. This news release constitutes notice to Warrant holders of the new expiry date. Any Warrants remaining unexercised after the new expiry date will be cancelled.

As of close of market on January 23, 2018, a total of 3,858,627 Warrants of the 7,187,500 originally issued Warrants had yet to be exercised. Each whole Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.75. Consequently, if all remaining unexercised Warrants are exercised, proceeds to the Company will total $2,893,970.25, which combined with already-exercised Warrants, will result in gross proceeds of $5,390,625.

Management Commentary

"We are excited about our continued growth and looking forward to bringing the Phivida brand into the global marketplace."
