Mindset Pharma Provides Strategic Intellectual Property License to Cybin


TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mindset Pharma Inc. (CSE: MSET) (FSE: 9DF) (OTCQB: MSSTF) ("Mindset"), a drug discovery company developing novel, optimized, next-generation psychedelic and non-psychedelic medications to treat neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders with unmet medical needs, today announced an exclusive licensing agreement for Cybin Inc. (NEO:CYBN) (NYSE American:CYBN) to acquire intellectual property rights for a subset of Mindset's preclinical compounds (the "Agreement"). Under the terms of the Agreement, Cybin will license intellectual property related to preclinical compounds within Mindset's "Family 1" portfolio, excluding MSP-1014, Mindset's lead psychedelic drug candidate.

"Over the last two years, Cybin has assembled a leading psychedelic drug development organization and we are pleased that our novel preclinical compounds have been recognized to potentially support their R&D pipeline. Both our companies share the same ultimate goal of discovering and developing superior new psychedelic treatments to better meet the needs of patients," said James Lanthier, CEO of Mindset Pharma. "This licensing agreement ? Mindset's second such agreement to advance its innovations to clinical study ? is another example of Mindset successfully executing on its scientific and business strategies. Coupled with our existing collaboration, Mindset now has multiple "shots on goal" for commercializing its innovations, with additional potential from its recently announced new families."

The Agreement includes an initial payment by Cybin to Mindset of US $500,000 along with clinical development milestone payments which could total up to US $9,500,000 upon successful completion of agreed milestones, including the approval and commercialization of the first drug candidate. The agreement also contemplates a sales royalty of approximately 2% for all commercialized licensed products within the scope of the exclusive agreement, which is customary for drug licensing agreements of this nature.
