TORONTO -- 

Antibe Therapeutics Inc. ("Antibe" or the “Company”) (TSXV: ATE, OTCQB: ATBPF) will be attending the 2017 CPhI Worldwide conference next week in Frankfurt, Germany. CPhI Worldwide is the world’s largest pharma trade show and considered the leading international pharmaceutical business and networking event. The event will be held on October 24th – 26th and will host over 42,000 pharma industry professionals from over 150 countries.

Antibe will be meeting with several regional pharmaceutical companies to discuss potential out-licensing opportunities of ATB-346 in advance of clinical results from the on-going Phase 2b GI safety study – a data read-out remains on schedule for Q1 2018.

Dan Legault, Antibe’s CEO, remarked, “Securing additional regional licensing deals for ATB-346 will provide further validation of Antibe’s H2S technology and supports our goal of unlocking the most value for shareholders. In addition, this partnering activity provides an important source of non-dilutive funding for development of our pipeline of novel NSAIDs. With Phase 2b GI safety data only months away, we have been entering discussions with several parties who have expressed an interest in our lead drug, ATB-346.”

Although it is Antibe’s goal to execute one or more regional licensing deals in the next six months, there can be no assurance that any partnering discussions will materialize into a successful transaction.

In addition, the Company has granted BND Projects Inc. 30,000 options for investor relations services and 7,500 options to an external consultant. Each option has an exercise price of $0.085, being the 5-day volume weighted average price of Antibe’s shares, vests quarterly starting on the date of the grant, and will expire October 20, 2020.
