Antibe to File an Application for an Initial Order Under Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act


TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Antibe Therapeutics Inc. (“Antibe” or the “Company”) (TSX: ATE, OTCQX: ATBPF) announced that it intends to file an application today with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the "Court") for an Initial Order under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (the "CCAA").
