Cybin Inc. (NYSE American:CYBN) (NEO:CYBN) ("Cybin" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to revolutionizing mental healthcare by developing new and innovative psychedelic-based treatment options, announced today that it has renewed its previously established at-the-market equity program (the "ATM Program") that allows Cybin to issue and sell up to US$35,000,000 of common shares ("Shares") in the capital of the Company from treasury to the public, from time to time, through the Agents (as defined below). All Shares sold under the ATM Program will be sold in transactions that are deemed to be "at-the-market" distributions as defined in National Instrument 44-102 ? Shelf Distributions, directly through the Neo Exchange Inc., now operating as Cboe Canada (the "NEO Exchange"), the NYSE American LLC or any other "marketplace" (as defined in National Instrument 21-101 Marketplace Operation) upon which the Shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded, at the prevailing market price at the time of sale. Cybin intends to use the net proceeds from sales of Shares under the ATM Program, if any, for growth opportunities and working capital initiatives.

Distributions of Shares under the ATM Program, if any, will be made pursuant to the terms and conditions of an "at-the-market equity" distribution agreement (the "Distribution Agreement") dated August 23, 2023 that the Company entered into with Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and Cantor Fitzgerald & Co.

The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program, if any, will be determined in Cybin's sole discretion and in accordance with the Distribution Agreement. As any Shares distributed under the ATM Program will be issued and sold at the prevailing market price at the time of the applicable sale, prices may vary among purchasers through the duration of the ATM Program. The completion of sales of Shares under the ATM Program will be subject to customary closing conditions, including the listing of such Shares on the NEO Exchange and the NYSE American LLC, and any required approvals of each exchange.
