BriaCell Announces Update on Previously Announced Securities Buyback Program and Participation at Upcoming Conferences

November 12, 2021 GMT

BERKELEY, Calif. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 12, 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 and other cancers, today announces the following updates:

Pursuant to the securities buyback program announced Sept. 9, 2021, BriaCell has repurchased 202,425 common shares (the “Common Shares”) and 70,246 publicly traded BCTXW warrants (the “Listed Warrants”). As announced, BriaCell may purchase through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) or the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) or alternative exchanges (i) up to 1,341,515 Common Shares and (ii) up to 411,962 publicly traded BCTXW Listed Warrants in total, representing 10% of the 13,415,154 Common Shares and 10% of the 4,119,622 Listed Warrants comprising the “public float” as of September 8, 2021, over the next 12 months.

BriaCell is fully-capitalized to achieve its strategic clinical milestones. Because of this BriaCell’s Board of Directors believes the best use of a portion of its excess capital at this time is to buy back its own Common Shares and Listed Warrants for cancellation. As of July 31, 2021, BriaCell’s cash balance was US$57.3 million which provides the strength and flexibility to execute both the buyback program and BriaCell’s growth strategy to expand into previously-announced areas of cancer immunotherapy and/or advance its current breast cancer clinical trials.

Separately, the Company announces that Dr. William V. Williams, President & CEO of BriaCell, is scheduled to present at the following virtual conferences:
