VANCOUVER, BC – OCTBER 31, 2016 – Advanced Proteome Therapeutics Corporation (“APC” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: APC) (Frankfurt: 0E8) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement financing (“Private Placement”) announced October 25, 2016 by the issuance of an aggregate of 2,600,000 units (“Units”) at a purchase price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $130,000. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company on or before October 28, 2017, at a purchase price of $0.10 per share.

All securities issued by the Company pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day and cannot be resold until March 1, 2017. In connection with the Private Placement the Company paid cash finder’s fees of $7,500 to Haywood Securities Inc., representing 7.5% of the gross proceeds received from subscribers introduced to the Company by such finder.

Alexander Krantz, a director and officer of the Company, subscribed for 600,000 Units.

The participation of the Company’s director in the Private Placement constitutes a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). However, the Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation requirement and the minority shareholder approval requirement found in MI 61-101 on the basis that neither the fair market value of the Units nor the consideration paid by such director for Units exceeds 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.

Net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to support the application of the Company’s site-selective technology for the development of antibody-drug conjugates in its industrial partnerships and academic collaborations with world-class institutions devoted to antibody technology.

The Private Placement is subject to final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
