BERKELEY, Calif. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (Nasdaq: BCTX, BCTXW) (TSX-V: BCT) (“BriaCell” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company specializing in targeted immunotherapies for advanced breast cancer, today announces that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) has accepted the Company’s Notice of Intention to implement a normal course issuer bid (the “Buyback”).

Pursuant to the Buyback, the Company may, during the 12-month period commencing on September 28, 2021 and ending September 27, 2022 purchase, through the facilities of the TSXV or The Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") or alternative exchanges, (i) up to 1,341,515 common shares (the “Common Shares”) and (ii) up to 411,962 publicly traded BCTXW warrants (the “Listed Warrants”) in total, representing 10% of the 13,415,154 Common Shares and 10% of the 4,119,622 Listed Warrants, respectively, that comprise the "public float" as of September 21, 2021. Independent Trading Group (ITG) Inc. will act as the Company’s advisor and dealer manager in respect of the Buyback. The Buyback will in no way interfere with BriaCell’s ambitious growth plans to expand into previously-announced areas of cancer immunotherapy and/or advance its current breast cancer clinical trials.

A copy of the Form 5G - Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid filed by the Company with the TSXV can be obtained from the Company upon request without charge.

BriaCell's proposed repurchases may be conducted through open market transactions at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, in block trades, and/or through other legally permissible means, subject to the market conditions and in compliance with applicable rules and regulations. The timing and dollar amount of repurchase transactions will be subject to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") Rule 10b-18 and/or Rule 10b5-1 requirements. Purchases of Common Shares or Listed Warrants through the Nasdaq will not, during the 12-month period, exceed 5% of the outstanding Common Shares or Listed Warrants in the aggregate and as of the commencement of the Buyback. BriaCell’s Board of Directors will be reviewing the program periodically and may revise the terms and/or size or suspend or discontinue the program.
