Calyx Provides Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CYX) ("Calyx") announces the following:

On April 9, 2014, following an evaluation by an Independent Committee of Calyx's board of directors, it was determined that in Calyx's view, no options for financing Agrisoma Biosciences Inc. ("Agrisoma") could be found that would be satisfactory to shareholders of Calyx as Agrisoma had not progressed as expected. Calyx waived its pre-emptive rights to allow a third party to finance Agrisoma and on July 2, 2014, Agrisoma completed a financing of $8.0 million dollars of which $4.8 million was advanced to Agrisoma. The remaining $3.2 million will be advanced pursuant to Agrisoma reaching certain milestones. The $8.0 million financing has diluted Calyx's interest in Agrisoma from 49.96% to approximately 25%. In the event Agrisoma requires additional follow-on financing in the future, further dilution will occur.

In addition, Calyx had a disagreement with Agrisoma over certain terms in the January 1, 2001 (as amended March 26, 2004) license and sub license agreement between the two companies. Concurrent with the financing, Calyx and Agrisoma entered into an agreement which fully and finally settled all matters relating to the license and sub license agreement with no cash paid nor amounts payable by either party.

As well, on June 27, 2014 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency gave regulatory approval for Carinata meal for use in feed for grower and finisher beef cattle in Canada. The CFIA's approval allows for Carinata meal sales and is an important part of the continued development for the Resonance Carinata value chain. CFIA regulatory approval for cattle feed in Canada means that Carinata meal has satisfied animal safety and efficacy testing.

Calyx is evaluating a number of business opportunities. Among these, Calyx is in advanced discussions with a group that has filed for an MMPR license. Calyx will provide further updates as they occur.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
