Microbix Announces Amendments to Debenture and Share Purchase Warrants

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 28, 2017) -

Not for distribution in the United States or through United States wire services.

Microbix Biosystems Inc. (TSX:MBX), an innovator of biological products and technologies, announced today it has negotiated an extension of its principal amount of the $500,000 non-convertible debenture set to mature on April 30, 2017. The arms' length debenture holder has agreed to extend the maturity date of the debenture to April 30, 2022 in exchange for amendments to an aggregate of 300,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") held by the debenture holder. 

Each Warrant currently entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Microbix at a price of $0.55 until August 21, 2019. Microbix has applied to the TSX to extend the term of the Warrants to August 21, 2022 and to amend the exercise price of the Warrants to $0.25 per share. The amendments to the terms of the Warrants are subject to TSX approval.

The Toronto Stock Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
