TORONTO, Ontario and CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProMIS Neurosciences Inc. (TSX: PMN) (OTCQB: ARFXF) (“ProMIS” or the “Company”), a discovery-focused biotechnology company and the development of therapeutic antibodies targeting misfolded proteins such as toxic oligomers, implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, today announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form 10 (the “Registration Statement” ) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to register the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, in connection with its application to list its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”).

“With this milestone, we are entering the final stages of a transformation of ProMIS that began last year, first with capital formation and now with a potential NASDAQ listing. Our lead therapeutic candidate for Alzheimer’s disease, PMN310, is progressing well and, following written pre-IND comments from the FDA, remains on track for an IND filing by the end of the year,” said Eugene Williams, president and CEO of ProMIS. We remain optimistic that clinical data in the area of ​​Alzheimer’s disease, particularly data from the pivotal trial of Eisai’s lecanemab study, will be positive and may reverse the negative sentiment that has resulted from EMA and CMS decisions regarding Aduhelm. , including ProMIS. We have also expanded and advanced our broader portfolio, continuing to apply the unique capabilities of our technology platform to fight diseases related to misfolded proteins. We believe the Nasdaq, with its tremendous depth and breadth of science-driven investment capital, is the right exchange to fully appreciate the value of ProMIS’ portfolio.

The registration statement relating to the common stock that has been filed with the SEC is subject to the review and comment of the staff of the SEC and there can be no assurance that the registration statement will ultimately be declared effective. The registration statement has also been filed with the Canadian System for Electronic Document Retrieval (“SEDAR”). The registration statement is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.govon the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website.

Listing of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq is subject to satisfaction of Nasdaq’s listing requirements and stock exchange approval of listing. There can be no assurance that the Nasdaq will approve the Company’s listing application in a timely manner, if at all.
