PreveCeutical Provides Update on Management Cease Trade Order

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 16, 2024) - PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) (the "Company" or "PreveCeutical") is providing an update with respect to the Management Cease Trade Order ("MCTO") issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission (the "BCSC") under National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"), effective as of May 2, 2024, and as previously announced by the Company.

The MCTO was issued by the BCSC in connection with the delay by the Company in filing its audited annual financial statements and accompanying management's discussion and analysis, with related CEO and CFO certificates, for the financial year ended December 31, 2023 (collectively, the "Annual Filings") by the deadline of April 29, 2024, as required under applicable Canadian securities laws.

The Company was unable to file its Annual Filings within the required time due to a lack of funds, which prevented the Company from engaging its auditors and completing its audit in a timely manner. The Company has since engaged Smythe LLP and expects to file the Annual Filings as soon as they are available, but in any event no later than June 28, 2024. The Company will issue a news release once the Annual Filings have been filed.

The Company is providing this status update in accordance with NP 12-203. Until the Company files the Annual Filings, it will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases.

The Company also anticipates completing a private placement for gross proceeds of up to $250,000 (the "Proposed Private Placement") in the near future, and expects to use the proceeds of the Proposed Private Placement for working capital purposes, including payment of audit related fees. The Company will provide further details on the Proposed Private Placement in a subsequent news release.

During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company's common shares (the "Shares") listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange. However, the Company's CEO, CFO and such other directors, officers and persons as determined by the applicable regulatory authorities will not be able to trade in the Shares, nor will the Company be able to, directly or indirectly, issue securities to or acquire securities from an insider or employee of the Company except in accordance with legally binding obligations to do so existing as of April 29, 2024, being the date of the Company's continuous disclosure default.

The Company is not subject to any insolvency proceedings. If the Company provides any information to any of its creditors during the period in which it is in default of filing the Annual Filings, the Company confirms that it will also file material change reports on SEDAR+ containing such information. The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there has been no material change in the information contained in the default announcement issued on May 2, 2024, and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
