The Offering is being led by EMD Financial Inc.
Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share (“Common Share”) in the capital of the Company and one (1) Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) of the Company.

There is an amended and restated offering document dated December 14, 2022 (the “Offering Document”) related to the Offering that can be accessed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at https://revivethera.com. Prospective investors should read this offering document before making an investment decision. The Offering Document is available in English and in French.
As disclosed in the Offering Document, the company intends to use the net proceeds for general working capital purposes and clinical development.
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay finder’s fees and issue finder warrants to EMD Financial Inc. as well as any other registrants participating in the Offering consisting of: (i) cash finder’s fees of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering; and (ii) finder warrants in an amount equal to up to 8% of the number of Units issued pursuant to the Offering, exercisable at a price of $0.15 per Common Share for a period of thirty-six (36) months following the Closing Date.
