September 13, 2023
Fellow Shareholders:
On behalf of the board of directors (the “Cybin Board”) and management of Cybin Inc. (the “Corporation” or “Cybin”), I write in connection with the annual and special meeting (the “Meeting”) of the holders (“Cybin Shareholders”) of common shares (“Cybin Shares”) of Cybin. The Meeting will be held in a virtual-only format via live audio webcast on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time). To attend the Meeting, you must register at https://register.proxypush.com/cybn. Upon completing your registration, you will receive further instructions via email, including a unique link that will allow you access to the Meeting and to vote and submit questions during the Meeting.
The accompanying management information circular (the “Circular”) and notice of annual and special meeting of Cybin Shareholders (the “Notice of Meeting”) contain important information regarding how to vote at the Meeting, the Arrangement (as defined below), the Acquisition Resolution (as defined below), the directors nominated for election, our corporate governance practices and how we compensate our executives and directors. Cybin Shareholders are urged to read this information carefully and, if they require assistance, to consult their tax, financial, legal and other professional advisors.
The Arrangement
On August 28, 2023, Cybin entered into an arrangement agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement”) with Small Pharma Inc. (“Small Pharma”) whereby, subject to the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement, pursuant to a statutory plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), Cybin will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Small Pharma (the “Small Pharma Shares”) on the basis of 0.2409 Cybin Shares per Small Pharma Share outstanding.
Immediately following completion of the Arrangement, Small Pharma will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cybin and, following the issuance of Cybin Shares pursuant to the Arrangement at the effective time (the “Effective Time”), it is anticipated that current holders of Cybin Shares and former holders of Small Pharma Shares will own approximately 75.3% and 25.7% of the combined entity.
Reasons for the Arrangement
Highly Complementary and Diversified Asset Portfolio. The combination creates an international, clinical-stage leader, with an expanded portfolio of clinical-stage psychedelic assets (CYB003 – Cybin’s proprietary deuterated psilocybin analog, CYB004 – Cybin’s proprietary deuterated DMT molecule, SPL028 – Small Pharma’s deuterated DMT, and SPL026 – Small Pharma’s first generation DMT) and pre-clinical assets that are highly complementary. Post-Arrangement Cybin’s combined DMT programs will constitute a significantly expanded dataset of systematic research on these short-duration psychedelic molecules, strengthening Post-Arrangement Cybin’s ability to make informed, data-driven strategic decisions for its development programs, increasing the likelihood of success.
Enhanced and Diversified Development Potential. Post-Arrangement Cybin will be able to pursue an expanded development portfolio, with multiple milestones anticipated to be initiated and/or completed over the next 12 to 18 months. This includes, but is not limited to: (i) determining safety and efficacy interactions of DMT in patients with major depressive disorder on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs); (ii) first in-human readouts of deuterated DMT compounds using intravenous (CYB004 and SPL028) and intramuscular (SPL028) routes of administration; (iii) efficacy, safety and tolerability readout of CYB003 in major depressive disorder patients; and, (iv) subject to the availability of financing and applicable regulatory approvals: (a) initiation of a pivotal efficacy study of CYB003; and (b) initiation of an efficacy study on a deuterated DMT compound. The addition of Small Pharma’s experience and expertise in the United Kingdom and Europe will increase Cybin’s ability to advance research and development activities in those markets.

Strengthened Intellectual Property Portfolio. Post-Arrangement Cybin will hold the most impressive intellectual property portfolio in the psychedelic drug development sector. Based on patents and patent applications held by Cybin and Small Pharma as of the date of this Circular, Post-Arrangement Cybin will hold 160 pending patent applications, including five allowed applications, as well as 30 granted patents protecting its clinical and preclinical
1


molecules. This extensive intellectual property portfolio creates an unmatched opportunity for Post-Arrangement Cybin to develop next-generation novel compounds for a number of mental health disorders that may be amenable to treatment with psychedelic therapies.

Operational and Financial Synergies. Post-Arrangement Cybin is expected to benefit from significant operational and financial synergies through the combination of the Parties’ research and development portfolios, and corporate general and administrative cost savings.

Improved Financial Position. Post-Arrangement Cybin will have, on a pro forma basis as at June 30, 2023, estimated cash of approximately $17.66 million, as well as access to two accessible financing arrangements, including (i) an at-the-market equity program that allows Cybin to issue and sell up to US$35 million of Cybin Shares, from time to time, which was renewed by Cybin in August 2023; and (ii) a common share purchase agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”) dated May 30, 2023 whereby Cybin has the right to sell, and LPC is obligated to purchase, up to US$30 million of Cybin Shares over a 36-month period (of which US$29.5 million remains unsold as at the date of this Circular).

Strong Research and Development and Leadership Teams. Stakeholders will benefit from the combination of two experienced biotechnology teams with a proven track record of success across the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. George Tziras, Small Pharma’s Chief Executive Officer, will also be joining the Cybin Board.

Consideration of Alternatives. Taking into account the degree to which Small Pharma’s assets and operations complement those of Cybin, organic growth opportunities currently available to Cybin, and other potential acquisition opportunities, management of Cybin and the Cybin Board have assessed the alternatives reasonably available. The completion of the Arrangement is consistent with Cybin’s strategic objectives, which include the development of its existing clinical- and pre-clinical-stage assets, and the pursuit through acquisition of additional clinical and pre-clinical-stage assets that contribute to corporate growth. Cybin believes that Post-Arrangement Cybin will be better positioned to pursue a value maximizing strategy as a result of the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement.

Strong Director, Officer and Shareholder Support. The Arrangement has strong director, officer, and shareholder support. All of the directors and senior officers of Cybin, and certain shareholders of Cybin, who collectively hold approximately 17% of the issued and outstanding Cybin Shares as at the record date of August 30, 2023 (the “Record Date”) have entered into support and voting agreements with Small Pharma concurrently with the execution of the Arrangement Agreement pursuant to which they have agreed, among other things, to vote their Cybin Shares in favour of the Acquisition Resolution at the Meeting and otherwise support the Arrangement.

In addition, each of the directors and executive officers of Small Pharma who owns Small Pharma Shares, and Small Pharma’s largest shareholder, who collectively hold or exercise control or direction over approximately 28.8% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement, have entered into support and voting agreements with Cybin concurrently with the execution of the Arrangement Agreement pursuant to which they have agreed, among other things, to support the Arrangement and vote their Small Pharma Shares in favour of the resolution to approve the Arrangement at the annual and special meeting of Small Pharma shareholders to be held on October 12, 2023 (as it may be adjourned or postponed). See “Support and Voting Agreements” in the Circular.

Shareholder Vote
Acquisition Resolution
At the Meeting, Cybin Shareholders will be asked to consider, and if deemed advisable, to approve, with or without variation, an ordinary resolution (the “Acquisition Resolution”) approving the Arrangement, the full text of which is attached as Schedule A to the Circular.
To be effective, the Acquisition Resolution must be approved at the Meeting by a simple majority of the votes cast on the Acquisition Resolution by the Cybin Shareholders present (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Meeting.

Recommendation
The Cybin Board, after careful consideration, including a thorough review of the Arrangement Agreement and receiving the advice of its legal counsel, in addition to considering other matters, each as described in the Circular, has unanimously determined that the Arrangement is in the best interests of Cybin and unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution. The determination of the Cybin Board is based on various factors described more fully under the heading “Background to the Arrangement & Recommendations – Reasons for the Arrangement” and elsewhere in the Circular.
Vote your Cybin Shares today FOR the Acquisition Resolution
Your vote is important regardless of how many Cybin Shares you own. Cybin Shareholders are strongly encouraged to submit their votes in advance of the Meeting over the internet, by telephone, or by submitting a completed form of proxy or voting instruction form, as applicable. To be effective, the enclosed form of proxy must be received by Cybin’s transfer agent, Odyssey Trust Company (according to the instructions on the proxy), not later than 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, or not later than 48 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays or holidays) before the time of the Meeting (as it may be adjourned or postponed from time to time). The deadline for the deposit of proxies may be waived or extended by the Chair of the Meeting at his discretion, without notice.
If you hold your Cybin Shares through a broker, custodian, nominee or other intermediary, you should follow the instructions provided by such intermediary to ensure your vote is counted at the Meeting.
Conditions
Subject to obtaining the requisite approvals of the Cybin Shareholders, the Small Pharma shareholders and the Supreme Court of British Columbia, it is anticipated that the Arrangement will be completed as soon as practicable following: (i) receipt of the final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, which is expected to be obtained on or about October 17, 2023; and (ii) the satisfaction or waiver of all other conditions precedent to the Arrangement.
On behalf of Cybin, we would like to thank all Cybin Shareholders for their continuing support.
Sincerely,
“Eric So”
Eric So
Chair and President

Questions Regarding the Arrangement
Q:    Why is the Meeting being held?
In addition to annual shareholder matters, the Meeting is being held because Cybin and Small Pharma have entered into the Arrangement Agreement, pursuant to which Cybin has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares by way of the Arrangement in exchange for the issuance of 0.2409 Cybin Shares for each issued and outstanding Small Pharma Share. Cybin expects to issue approximately 81,010,487 Cybin Shares to Former Small Pharma Shareholders, representing approximately 34.5% of the 234,683,234 Cybin Shares issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis) as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement.
Pursuant to the policies of the Cboe Canada, because the total number of Cybin Shares issuable pursuant to the Arrangement is more than 25% of the total number of Cybin Shares issued and outstanding, the Arrangement must be approved by Cybin Shareholders.
The Arrangement cannot proceed unless a number of conditions are satisfied, including the approval of the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders. See “The Arrangement” and “The Arrangement Agreement”.
Q:    What are Cybin Shareholders being asked to vote on?
At the Meeting, Cybin Shareholders will be asked to approve the Arrangement. The full text of the Acquisition Resolution is attached as Schedule A to the Circular. Also see “The ArrangementRequired ApprovalsShareholder Approvals”.
The Meeting is also an annual shareholder meeting. Cybin Shareholders will receive Cybin’s audited consolidated financial statements as at and for the years ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, and the report of the auditors on such financial statements, and will be asked to vote to: (i) appoint Cybin’s auditors for the ensuing year and to authorize the directors to fix their remuneration; (ii) determine the number of directors to be elected to be six; and (iii) elect directors for the ensuing year. Details regarding annual shareholder matters to be considered at the Meeting are provided under the heading “Other Matters to be Acted Upon”.
Q:    What approvals are being sought at the Meeting?
In order to be effective, the Acquisition Resolution must be approved by a simple majority of the votes cast thereon by the Cybin Shareholders present (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Meeting. See “The ArrangementRequired ApprovalsShareholder Approvals”.
In addition, Cybin Shareholders will be asked to approve each of the annual matters to be considered at the Meeting, including the appointment of the auditors of Cybin, setting the number of directors to be elected at six and electing the directors of Cybin for the ensuing year. In connection with the election of directors, Cybin has adopted a majority voting
3


policy as described under “Other Matters to be Acted UponElection of DirectorsMajority Voting Policy” in the Circular.
Q:    What other approvals are required for the Arrangement?
In addition to approval of the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders, the Arrangement requires a number of additional approvals to become effective, including:
(a)    the Arrangement Resolution must be approved by Small Pharma Shareholders at the Small Pharma Meeting by at least 66 ⅔% of the votes cast on the Arrangement Resolution by the Small Pharma Shareholders present in person (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Small Pharma Meeting;
(b)    the Court must grant the Final Order approving the Arrangement; and
(c)    the Cboe Canada and the NYSE American must have conditionally approved the listing of the Consideration Shares, subject to satisfaction of standard listing conditions.
See “The ArrangementRequired Approvals”.
Q:    Does the Cybin Board support the Arrangement?
Yes. The Cybin Board, based upon careful consideration, has unanimously determined that the Arrangement and the entry into the Arrangement Agreement are in the best interests of Cybin, and approved the Arrangement Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby.
The Cybin Board unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution.
In making its recommendation, the Cybin Board considered a number of factors as described in this Circular under the heading “Background to the Arrangement & RecommendationsReasons for the Arrangement.”
Q:    Why is Cybin proposing to acquire Small Pharma?
The combination of Cybin and Small Pharma creates an international, clinical-stage leader, holding a significantly expanded portfolio of clinical-and pre-clinical stage psychedelic assets that are highly complementary. Post-Arrangement Cybin’s combined DMT programs will constitute a significantly expanded dataset of systematic research on these short-duration psychedelic molecules, which will better enable Post-Arrangement Cybin’s to make informed, data-driven strategic decisions for its development programs, increasing the likelihood of success.
Q:    What will happen to Small Pharma Options under the Arrangement?
Pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement, each In-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) shall be deemed to be, exercised and surrendered to Small Pharma for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered In-the-Money Small Pharma Option, the Option Consideration. Each Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding at the Effective Time, shall be, and shall be deemed to be, surrendered to Small Pharma for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option, a cash payment from the Small Pharma equal to $0.001 per Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option.
It is expected that 11,828,850 Small Pharma Options will be exercised prior to the Effective Time. Following such exercises, no Small Pharma Options are expected to be In-the-Money Small Pharma Options, assuming that the Small Pharma Share Value will be approximately $0.10 per Small Pharma Share.
Q:    How many Cybin Shares are expected to be issued at the Effective Time?
Pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement, Small Pharma Shareholders will receive, for each Small Pharma Share held, 0.2409 Cybin Shares. As at the date of this Circular, there are 324,453,787 Small Pharma Shares outstanding. It is expected that
4


approximately 81,010,487 Cybin Shares will be issued as Consideration for the Small Pharma Shares, subject to certain assumptions, including that (i) no Small Pharma Shareholders will exercise Dissent Rights; (ii) 11,828,850 Small Pharma Options will be exercised prior to the Effective Time; and (iii) no other Small Pharma Options will be Small Pharma In-the-Money Options at the Effective Time. In such circumstances, current Cybin Shareholders and former Small Pharma Shareholders will own approximately 74.3% and 25.7% of the outstanding Cybin Shares, respectively, as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement.
See “The ArrangementEffects of the Arrangement”.
See “Background to the Arrangement & RecommendationsReasons for the Arrangement”.
Q:    Have any Cybin Shareholders or Small Pharma Shareholders agreed to vote in favour of the Arrangement?
Yes. Each of the directors, senior officers of Cybin, and certain significant shareholders of Cybin who collectively hold approximately 17% of the issued and outstanding Cybin Shares as of the Record Date, have entered into support and voting agreements with Small Pharma, whereby such Cybin Shareholders have agreed to, among other things, support the Arrangement and vote their Cybin Shares in favour of the Acquisition Resolution, subject to certain exceptions.
In addition, Cybin has entered into support and voting agreements with the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders, which include each of the directors and executive officers of Small Pharma who own Small Pharma Shares, as well as Small Pharma’s largest shareholder, pursuant to which such Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders have agreed to, among other things, vote all their Small Pharma Shares in favour of the Arrangement Resolution. The Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders collectively own, or exercise control or direction over, approximately 28.8% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement.
See “Support and Voting Agreements” for more information.
Q:    When will the Arrangement become effective?
It is currently expected that the Effective Date will occur on or about October 17, 2023, and in no event will completion of the Arrangement occur later than November 30, 2023, unless extended by mutual agreement of the Parties in accordance with the terms of the Arrangement Agreement. See “The ArrangementTiming”.
Q:    What will happen if the Acquisition Resolution is not approved by Cybin Shareholders or the Arrangement is not completed for any reason?
If the Acquisition Resolution is not approved by Cybin Shareholders, the Arrangement Agreement may be terminated. In the event the Arrangement Agreement is terminated (i) by Small Pharma or Cybin in the event that the Acquisition Resolution is not approved by Cybin Shareholders or (ii) by Small Pharma as a result of Cybin’s breach of representations and warranties, then, in certain circumstances, Small Pharma will be entitled to receive from Cybin an expense reimbursement of $400,000. In addition, Cybin may be required to pay a termination fee of $2,000,000 to Small Pharma in certain circumstances. See “The Arrangement AgreementExpenses and Termination Fees”.

A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements including: (i) changes in general economic and market conditions; (ii) uncertainties related to research & development of product candidates, which are at early stages of development, including the possibility that actual capital and operating costs and economic returns will differ significantly from estimates; (iii) uncertainties related to clinical trials; (iv) Cybin may be unable to adequately protect or defend its intellectual property against infringement; (v) adverse changes in economic, political or social conditions or in applicable laws, rules and regulations; (vi) Cybin may not maintain “foreign private issuer” status under the U.S. Securities Laws; (vii) inability to raise additional funding to support operations; (viii) risks associated with Cybin’s reliance on third parties to plan, conduct and monitor preclinical studies and clinical trials; (ix) Cybin’s product candidates may fail to demonstrate safety and efficacy to the satisfaction of regulatory authorities or may not otherwise produce positive results; (x) investigational new drug applications to commence clinical trials may not be approved; (xi) Cybin may be unable to complete clinical trials due to difficulties enrolling patients when expected, or at all; (xii) Cybin may fail to successfully compete against other biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies; (xiii) risks associated with Cybin’s reliance on the capabilities and experience of key executives and scientists; (xiv) the risk of patent-related or other litigation; (xv) adverse changes to the laws or regulations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands, Ireland and other jurisdictions in which Cybin operates may occur; (xvi) fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; and (xvii) Cybin may become subject to environmental costs, events or liability claims.

Market and Industry Data
Market and industry data contained in the Circular or incorporated by reference in this Circular concerning economic and industry trends is based upon good faith estimates of Cybin’s management or derived from information provided by industry sources. Cybin believes that such market and industry data is accurate and that the sources from which it has been obtained are reliable. However, Cybin cannot guarantee the accuracy of such information and we have not independently verified the assumptions upon which projections of future trends are based. While Cybin is not aware of any misstatements regarding the industry data presented herein, Cybin’s estimates involve risks and uncertainties and are subject to change based on various factors, including those discussed under “Risk Factors” in this Circular and in the Cybin AIF.
Note to U.S. Shareholders
THE CONSIDERATION SHARES ISSUABLE PURSUANT TO THE ARRANGEMENT HAVE NOT BEEN APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED BY THE SEC OR THE SECURITIES REGULATORY AUTHORITY OF ANY STATE OF THE UNITED STATES, NOR HAS THE SEC OR ANY SUCH STATE SECURITIES REGULATORY AUTHORITY PASSED UPON THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THIS CIRCULAR. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE.
The issuance of the Cybin Shares to Small Pharma Securityholders in exchange for Small Pharma Shares (including Small Pharma Shares issued upon the exchange for In-the-Money Small Pharma Options pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement) has not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act or the securities laws of any state of the United States. Such securities will be issued in reliance upon the Section 3(a)(10) Exemption and exemptions from applicable U.S. Securities Laws. The Section 3(a)(10) Exemption exempts the issuance of securities issued in exchange for one or more bona fide outstanding securities from the general requirement of registration under the U.S. Securities Act where the terms and conditions of the issuance and exchange of such securities have been determined to be substantively and procedurally fair to the persons to whom the securities will be issued by a court of competent jurisdiction, expressly authorized by Law to grant such approval, after a hearing upon the fairness of the terms and conditions of the issuance and exchange at which all persons to whom the securities will be issued have the right to appear and receive timely and adequate notice thereof. The Court is authorized to conduct a hearing at which the fairness of the terms and conditions of the Arrangement will be considered. See “The ArrangementRequired Approvals Court Approvals”. The issuance of the Consideration Shares to Small Pharma Securityholders in exchange for the Small Pharma Shares or In-the-Money Small Pharma Options, in each case pursuant to the Arrangement, will, therefore, be exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act pursuant to the Section 3(a)(10) Exemption and will be freely transferable under United States federal securities laws, except that the U.S. Securities Act imposes restrictions on the resale of securities received pursuant to the Arrangement by persons who are, or within the 90 days immediately before the Effective Date were, “affiliates” (as defined in Rule 144 under the U.S. Securities Act) of the issuer of those securities. See “Securities Laws Matters U.S. Securities Laws”.
Each of Cybin and Small Pharma is a “foreign private issuer” as defined in Rule 3b-4 under the U.S. Exchange Act, and this Circular has been prepared in accordance with the disclosure requirements of applicable Canadian Securities Laws. Accordingly, the solicitation of proxies for the Meeting is not subject to the requirements of section 14(a) of the U.S. Exchange Act. As such, the solicitations and transactions contemplated in this Circular are made in the United States for securities of a Canadian issuer in accordance with Ontario corporate Laws and Canadian Securities Laws, and this Circular has been prepared solely in accordance with disclosure requirements applicable in Canada. Cybin Shareholders should be aware that such requirements are different from those of the United States applicable to registration statements under the U.S. Securities Act and proxy statements under the U.S. Exchange Act.
The enforcement by investors of civil liabilities under the U.S. Securities Laws may be affected adversely by the fact that Cybin is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the U.S., that some or all of its officers and directors are residents of countries other than the U.S., that some or all of the experts named in this Circular and the documents incorporated by reference herein may be residents of countries other than the U.S., and that all or a substantial portion of the assets of Cybin, Small Pharma and such persons are located outside the U.S. As a result, it may be difficult or impossible for Cybin Shareholders resident in the U.S. to effect service of process within the U.S. upon Cybin or Small Pharma, their
21


respective officers and directors or the experts named in this Circular and any documents incorporated by reference herein, or to realize, against them, upon judgments of courts in the U.S. predicated upon civil liabilities under U.S. Securities Laws. In addition, Cybin Shareholders resident in the U.S. should not assume that Canadian courts: (i) would enforce judgments of U.S. courts obtained in actions against such persons predicated upon civil liabilities under U.S. Securities Laws or the state-specific “blue sky” securities laws of any state within the U.S.; or (ii) would enforce, in original actions, liabilities against such persons predicated upon civil liabilities under U.S. Securities Laws or “blue sky” laws of any state within the United States.

Solicitation of Proxies
While it is expected that the solicitation of proxies will be primarily by mail, to encourage your vote, you may be contacted by Cybin’s directors, officers, employees or agents by telephone, email, internet, facsimile, or by other means of communication. The solicitation of proxies will primarily be made by sending proxy materials to Cybin Shareholders by mail, but proxies may also be solicited personally or by telephone by regular employees of Cybin. The cost of solicitation will be borne by Cybin. Except as otherwise stated, the information contained herein is given as of September 13, 2023.
Except as noted below, Cybin has distributed or made available for distribution, the Meeting Materials to Intermediaries for distribution to Cybin Beneficial Shareholders (as defined below) whose Cybin Shares are held by or in custody of such Intermediaries. Such Intermediaries are required to forward such documents to Cybin Beneficial Shareholders unless a Cybin Beneficial Shareholders has waived the right to receive them. Cybin has elected to pay for the delivery of the Meeting Materials to objecting Cybin Beneficial Shareholders by the Intermediaries. Cybin is sending proxy-related materials directly to non-objecting Cybin Beneficial Shareholders, through the services of its transfer agent and registrar, Odyssey Trust Company. The solicitation of proxies from Cybin Beneficial Shareholders will be carried out by the Intermediaries or by Cybin if the names and addresses of the Cybin Beneficial Shareholders are provided by Intermediaries. Cybin will pay the permitted fees and costs of Intermediaries incurred in connection with the distribution of the Meeting Materials. Cybin is not relying on the notice-and-access provisions of Canadian Securities Laws for delivery of the Meeting Materials to registered Shareholders or Cybin Beneficial Shareholders.
Voting at the Meeting
Cybin Registered Shareholders may vote at the Meeting by completing a ballot online during the Meeting, as further described below.
Appointment and Revocation of Proxies
A registered Cybin Shareholder can vote by proxy whether or not they attend the Meeting. The persons named in the enclosed form of proxy are officers and/or directors of Cybin. A registered Cybin Shareholder desiring to appoint some other person (who need not be a Cybin Shareholder) to represent him, her or it at the Meeting may do so either by inserting such person’s name in the blank space provided in the applicable form of proxy or by completing another proper form of proxy. In either case, a registered Cybin Shareholder can vote by proxy by delivering the completed proxy to Cybin’s transfer agent and registrar, Odyssey Trust Company, (i) by mail to Attn: Proxy Department, 67 Yonge Street, Suite 702, Toronto, Ontario M5E 1J8 in the prepaid addressed envelope provided for that purpose, or (ii) by voting online at http://vote.odysseytrust.com by no later than 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, or if the Meeting is adjourned, not less than 24 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays) before the time set for any reconvened meeting at which the proxy is to be used.
Cybin Shareholders who wish to appoint a person, other than the management nominees identified on the form of proxy, to attend and participate at the Meeting as their proxy and vote their Cybin Shares, must submit their proxy appointing such third party proxyholder AND complete the additional step of registering the proxyholder by
22


emailing Odyssey Trust Company at appointee@odysseytrust.com by no later than 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, or if the Meeting is adjourned, not less than 24 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays) before the time set for any reconvened meeting at which the proxy is to be used, and provide Odyssey Trust Company with the required proxyholder contact information, the number of Cybin Shares appointed and the name in which the Cybin Shares are registered, so that Odyssey Trust Company may provide the proxyholder with a username via email. Failure to register the proxyholder with Odyssey Trust Company will result in the proxyholder not receiving login credentials to participate at the Meeting and not being able to attend, participate or vote at the Meeting.
A Cybin Shareholder has the right to revoke a proxy that has been submitted. To revoke a proxy, the Cybin Shareholder may deliver a written notice to the registered office of Cybin at any time up to and including the last business day before the Meeting or any adjournment of the Meeting. The proxy may also be revoked on the day of the Meeting or any adjournment of the Meeting by delivering written notice to the chair of the Meeting. In addition, the proxy may be revoked by any other method permitted by law. The written notice of revocation may be executed by the Cybin Shareholder or by an attorney who has the Cybin Shareholder’s written authorization. If the Cybin Shareholder is a corporation, the written notice must be executed by its duly authorized officer or attorney.
Exercise of Discretion by Proxies
The persons named in the accompanying form of proxy will vote the Cybin Shares in respect of which they are appointed in accordance with the direction of the Shareholders appointing them. In the absence of such direction, such Cybin Shares will be voted in favour of the passing of the matters set out in the Notice of Meeting. The form of proxy confers discretionary authority upon the persons named therein with respect to amendments or variations to matters identified in the Notice of Meeting and with respect to other matters which may properly come before the Meeting or any adjournment thereof. At the time of the printing of this Circular, the management of Cybin knows of no such amendments, variations or other matters to come before the Meeting other than the matters referred to in the Notice of Meeting. However, if any other matters which at present are not known to the management of Cybin should properly come before the Meeting, the proxy will be voted on such matters in accordance with the best judgment of the named proxies.
Legal Proxy – U.S. Cybin Beneficial Shareholders
If you are a Cybin Beneficial Shareholder located in the United States and wish to attend, participate or vote at the Meeting or, if permitted, appoint a third party as your proxyholder, in addition to the steps described herein you must obtain a valid legal proxy from your intermediary. Follow the instructions from your Intermediary included with the legal proxy form and the voting information form sent to you, or contact your Intermediary to request a legal proxy form or a legal proxy if you have not received one. After obtaining a valid legal proxy from your Intermediary, you must then submit such legal proxy to Odyssey Trust Company. Requests for registration from Cybin Beneficial Shareholders located in the United States that wish to attend, participate or vote at the Meeting or, if permitted, appoint a third party as their proxyholder must be sent by e-mail to appointee@odysseytrust.com and received by 1:00 p.m. (Toronto) on Tuesday, October 10, 2023.
How Do I Attend and Participate at the Meeting?
Cybin is holding the Meeting as a completely virtual meeting, which will be conducted via live webcast. Cybin Shareholders will not be able to attend the Meeting in person.
Cybin Registered Shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders will be able to attend, participate and vote at the Meeting. Registration is required online at https://register.proxypush.com/cybn. Upon completing your registration, you will receive further instructions via email, including a unique link that will allow you access to the Meeting and to vote and submit questions during the Meeting:
·    Cybin Registered Shareholders: Your control number is located on the form of proxy. If you are using your control number to login to the Meeting and you have previously voted, you do not need to vote again when the polls open. By voting at the Meeting, you will revoke your previous voting instructions received prior to voting cut-off.
23


·    Duly appointed proxyholders: Odyssey Trust Company will provide the proxyholder with a credentials by email after the voting deadline has passed. Cybin Registered Shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders will be entitled to attend, participate and vote at the Meeting. Cybin Shareholders who wish to appoint a third party proxy-holder to represent them at the Meeting MUST submit their duly completed proxy AND register the proxyholder. See “Appointment and Revocation of Proxies”.
Advice to Beneficial Shareholders
Cybin Shareholders should note that only proxies deposited by Cybin Shareholders whose names appear on the records of Cybin as the registered holders of Cybin Shares, or non-objecting beneficial owners whose names has been provided to Cybin’s registrar and transfer agent, can be recognized and acted upon at the Meeting. The information set forth in this section is therefore of significant importance to a substantial number of Cybin Shareholders who do not hold their Cybin Shares in their own name (the “Cybin Beneficial Shareholders”). If Cybin Shares are listed in an account statement provided to a Shareholder by an Intermediary, then in almost all cases those Cybin Shares will not be registered in such Cybin Shareholder’s name on the records of Cybin. Such Cybin Shares will more likely be registered under the name of the Shareholder’s Intermediary or an agent of that Intermediary. In Canada, the vast majority of such Cybin Shares are registered under the name of CDS & Co., as nominee for CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc., which acts as a depository for many Canadian Intermediaries. Cybin Shares held by Intermediaries or their nominees can only be voted for or against resolutions upon the instructions of the Cybin Beneficial Shareholders. Without specific instructions, Intermediaries are prohibited from voting Cybin Shares for their clients.
Applicable regulatory policy requires Intermediaries to seek voting instructions from Cybin Beneficial Shareholders in advance of shareholders’ meetings. Every Intermediary has its own mailing procedures and provides its own return instructions, which should be carefully followed by Cybin Beneficial Shareholders in order to ensure that their Cybin Shares are voted at the Meeting. Often the form of proxy supplied to a Cybin Beneficial Shareholders by its Intermediary is identical to the form of proxy provided by Cybin to the Intermediaries. However, its purpose is limited to instructing the Intermediary how to vote on behalf of the Cybin Beneficial Shareholders. The majority of Intermediaries now delegate responsibility for obtaining instructions from clients to Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (“Broadridge”). Broadridge typically mails the voting instruction forms or proxy forms to the Cybin Beneficial Shareholders and asks the Cybin Beneficial Shareholders to return the voting instruction forms or proxy forms to Broadridge. Broadridge then tabulates the results of all instructions received and provides appropriate instructions respecting the voting of Cybin Shares to be represented at the Meeting. A Cybin Beneficial Shareholders receiving a proxy or voting instruction form from Broadridge cannot use that proxy to vote Cybin Shares directly at the Meeting. The proxy must be returned to Broadridge well in advance of the Meeting in order to have the Cybin Shares voted.
Although Cybin Beneficial Shareholders may not be recognized directly at the Meeting for the purposes of voting Cybin Shares registered in the name of their Intermediary, a Cybin Beneficial Shareholders may attend the Meeting as proxyholder for the Intermediary and vote their Cybin Shares in that capacity. Cybin Beneficial Shareholders who wish to attend the Meeting and indirectly vote their own Cybin Shares as proxyholder for the Intermediary should enter their own names in the blank space on the management form of proxy or voting instruction form provided to them and return the same to their Intermediary (or the agent of such Intermediary) in accordance with the instructions provided by such Intermediary or agent well in advance of the Meeting. Cybin Beneficial Shareholders should carefully follow the instructions of their Intermediaries and their service companies.
All references to Cybin Shareholders at the Meeting are to Cybin Shareholders as of the Record Date unless specifically stated otherwise.
Note to Non-Objecting Beneficial Owners
The Meeting Materials are being sent to both registered and Cybin Beneficial Shareholders. If you are a Cybin Beneficial Shareholder, and Cybin or its transfer agent and registrar, Odyssey Trust Company, has sent the Meeting Materials directly to you, your name and address and information about your holdings of Cybin Shares, have been obtained in accordance with applicable securities regulatory requirements from the Intermediary holding on your behalf. By choosing to send the Meeting Materials to you directly, Cybin (and not the Intermediary holding on your behalf) has assumed responsibility for (i) delivering the Meeting Materials to you, and (ii) executing your proper voting instructions. Please return your voting instructions as specified in the request for voting instructions.

Background to the Arrangement
The Arrangement and the provisions of the Arrangement Agreement are the result of arm’s length negotiations among representatives of Small Pharma and Cybin and their respective financial and legal advisors. See “The Arrangement Background to the Arrangement & Recommendations” for a detailed summary of the background to the Arrangement and the events leading up to the execution of the Arrangement Agreement and the public announcement of the proposed Arrangement.
Recommendation of the Board
After careful consideration, the Cybin Board determined, in consultation with its legal advisors, that the Arrangement is in the best interests of Cybin, and unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution. The determination of the Cybin Board is based on various factors described more fully in the Circular. See “The Arrangement Background to the Arrangement & Recommendations”.

Under the terms of the Arrangement, each Small Pharma Share outstanding at the Effective Time (other than Small Pharma Shares held by Dissenting Shareholders) will be deemed to be transferred to Cybin in exchange for the Consideration. The Exchange Ratio implies a consideration of approximately $0.10 per Small Pharma Share based on the closing price of the Cybin Shares of $0.415 on the Cboe Canada on August 25, 2023 (being the last trading day prior to the announcement of the Arrangement).
Each Small Pharma Share held by Dissenting Shareholders will be deemed to have been transferred to Small Pharma (free and clear of any encumbrances), without any further act or formality, and such Dissenting Shareholders will cease to have any rights as a Small Pharma Shareholder other than the right to be paid the fair value for their Small Pharma Shares by Small Pharma.
Small Pharma Options
Pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement, each In-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) shall be and shall be deemed to be, exercised and surrendered to Small Pharma
27


for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered In-the-Money Small Pharma Option, the Option Consideration. Each Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding at the Effective Time, shall be, and shall be deemed to be, surrendered to Small Pharma for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option, a cash payment from the Small Pharma equal to $0.001 per Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option.
Cybin Shares
If the Arrangement is completed, the actual number of Cybin Shares that will be issued on the Effective Date will depend on (i) the number of Small Pharma Shares issued and outstanding on the Effective Date, which may be affected by the number of Small Pharma Options that are exercised prior to the Effective Date, and (ii) the number of Small Pharma Shares held by Dissenting Shareholders.
Cybin anticipates that immediately following the completion of the Arrangement, current Cybin Shareholders and Former Small Pharma Shareholders will own approximately 74.3% and 25.7% of the outstanding Cybin Shares, respectively, based on the number of Cybin Shares outstanding upon execution of the Arrangement Agreement, and assuming that: (i) no Small Pharma Shareholders will exercise Dissent Rights; (ii) 11,828,850 Small Pharma Options will be exercised prior to the Effective Time; (iii) no other Small Pharma Options will be Small Pharma In-the-Money Options at the Effective Time.
Procedural Steps
The Arrangement is proposed to be carried out pursuant to Part 9, Division 5 of the BCBCA. The following procedural steps must be taken in order for the Arrangement to become effective:
(a)    the Arrangement Resolution must be approved by Small Pharma Shareholders at the Small Pharma Meeting in the manner set forth in the Interim Order;
(b)    the Acquisition Resolution must be approved by Cybin Shareholders at the Meeting in the manner required by the Cboe Canada;
(c)    the Court must grant the Final Order approving the Arrangement; and
(d)    all other conditions precedent to the Arrangement must be satisfied or waived by the appropriate Party.
There is no assurance that the conditions set out in the Arrangement Agreement will be satisfied or waived on a timely basis or at all.
Required Approvals
Shareholder Approvals
Cybin Shareholder Approval
Pursuant to subsection 10.11(1)(b) of the NEO Exchange Listings Manual, the Cboe Canada requires shareholder approval of an acquisition in circumstances where the total number of securities issuable by a listed issuer pursuant to an acquisition is more than 25% of the total number of securities of the listed issuer outstanding (calculated on a non-diluted basis). Pursuant to the Arrangement, Cybin expects to issue 81,010,487 Cybin Shares to Former Small Pharma Shareholders, representing approximately 34.5% of the 234,683,234 Cybin Shares issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis) as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement. Accordingly, at the Meeting, Cybin Shareholders will be asked to approve the Acquisition Resolution authorizing the Arrangement.
The Cboe Canada requires that the Acquisition Resolution must be approved at the Meeting by a simple majority of the votes cast on the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders present (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Meeting. If the Acquisition Resolution is not approved by Cybin Shareholders, Cybin will not be able to satisfy the listing requirements of Cboe Canada, and the Arrangement will not proceed.
28


The Cybin Board unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution.
The full text of the Acquisition Resolution is set out in Schedule A.
Small Pharma Shareholder Approval
It is a condition to the completion of the Arrangement that the Arrangement Resolution be approved at the Small Pharma Meeting.
Pursuant to the terms of the Interim Order, the Arrangement Resolution must, subject to further order of the Court, be approved by at least 66 ⅔% of the votes cast on the Arrangement Resolution by the Small Pharma Shareholders present in person (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Small Pharma Meeting.
Court Approvals
On September 13, 2023, the Court granted the Interim Order providing for the calling and holding of the Small Pharma Meeting and other procedural matters.
The BCBCA provides that a plan of arrangement requires Court approval. Subject to the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, if the Acquisition Resolution and the Arrangement Resolution are approved at the Meeting and the Small Pharma Meeting, respectively, Small Pharma intends to make an application to the Court for the Final Order. The Court hearing in respect of the Final Order is expected to take place on or about October 17, 2023 via teleconference at 9:45 a.m. (Vancouver time), or as soon thereafter as counsel may be heard.
Stock Exchange Listings
As soon as practicable following completion of the Arrangement, Cybin intends to apply to applicable Canadian securities regulators to have Small Pharma cease to be a reporting issuer and to have the Small Pharma Shares delisted from the TSXV and removed from quotation on the OTCQB Market.
Cybin has applied to or will apply to list the Consideration Shares on the Cboe Canada and NYSE American. It is a condition to completion of the Arrangement that the Cboe Canada and the NYSE American will have conditionally approved the listing of the Consideration Shares, subject to satisfaction of standard listing conditions.
Securities Laws Matters
Canadian Securities Laws
The Cybin Shares distributed pursuant to the Arrangement will be issued in reliance on exemptions from the prospectus requirements of applicable Canadian Securities Laws, will generally be “freely tradable” and the resale of such Cybin Shares will be exempt from the prospectus requirements (and not subject to any “restricted period” or “hold period”) under applicable Canadian Securities Laws if the following conditions are met: (i) the trade is not a control distribution (as defined under applicable Canadian Securities Laws); (ii) no unusual effort is made to prepare the market or to create a demand for Cybin Shares; (iii) no extraordinary commission or consideration is paid to a person or company in respect of the trade; and (iv) if the selling shareholder is an insider or an officer of Cybin, the selling securityholder has no reasonable grounds to believe that Cybin is in default of securities legislation.

THE ARRANGEMENT
Background to the Arrangement & Recommendations
On August 28, 2023, Cybin entered into the Arrangement Agreement with Small Pharma, which sets out the terms and conditions for the implementation of the Arrangement, which will be effected by way of the Plan of Arrangement. Pursuant to the Arrangement, Cybin will acquire all of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares in exchange for the Consideration of 0.2409 Cybin Shares for each Small Pharma Share.
Background to the Arrangement
The Arrangement Agreement is the result of arm’s length negotiations among representatives of Cybin and Small Pharma and their respective financial and legal advisors. The following is a summary of the material events that preceded the execution and public announcement of the Arrangement Agreement.
Cybin regularly reviews its overall corporate strategy and long-term strategic plan with the goal of maximizing shareholder value, including identifying and evaluating potential strategic transactions, and engaging in preliminary conversations with potential counterparties. Small Pharma has been of interest to Cybin since January 2021, when the companies entered into initial exploratory discussions. Eric So, Chair and President of Cybin and Doug Drysdale, Chief Executive Officer of Cybin, and Small Pharma representatives including Peter Rands, then Chief Executive Officer and a director, and George Tziras, then Chief Business Officer and a director, held meetings in the United Kingdom, the United States and via web conference. Based on those meetings, both parties determined that given their respective stages of development, a strategic transaction would be premature, and discussions were terminated. The Cybin Board was informed that Small Pharma was of interest to Cybin, and that initial exploratory discussions had been attempted.
In mid-June 2023, following significant progress by both Cybin and Small Pharma on their respective development programs, Mr. So, Mr. Drysdale and Mr. Tziras revisited discussions regarding a potential strategic transaction. Management of Cybin concluded that a potential business combination with Small Pharma remained an attractive opportunity to maximize shareholder value, and should be explored further.
On June 21, 2023, following initial discussions, the Parties entered into a reciprocal confidentiality agreement to facilitate each Party’s provision of non-public information to the other Party. Later that day, Mr. Drysdale and Mr. So met in person with Mr. Tziras, Chief Executive Officer of Small Pharma, to discuss a potential transaction whereby Cybin would acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares Cybin reviewed Small Pharma’s capitalization and financial position, and developed a share exchange model to determine the relative valuation of the two companies in a potential business combination, which formed a basis of subsequent negotiations.
On June 27, 2023, Cybin engaged Gowling WLG as its legal counsel to provide advice on the structure and proposed terms of the possible transaction.
On June 30, 2023, Mr. Drysdale presented Mr. Tziras with a non-binding letter of intent outlining the basic terms of a potential transaction, including the proposed share exchange model and the respective valuations of the two companies, and exclusivity obligations during negotiations, among other things. Small Pharma received and reviewed Cybin’s non-binding letter of intent, in consultation with its financial advisor, Jefferies International Limited, its legal counsel, Aird & Berlis, and the Small Pharma Special Committee.
The non-binding letter of intent was negotiated extensively throughout July 2023 based on different potential acquisition scenarios and valuation approaches. It was determined that in light of market volatility affecting the price for the Cybin Shares and the Small Pharma Shares, it would be preferable to negotiate the consideration for Small Pharma based on a fixed exchange ratio based on the proportionate share of the combined entity resulting from a transaction that would be held by the Cybin Shareholders and Small Pharma Shareholders.
On July 18, 2023, Jefferies International Limited, on behalf of Small Pharma, delivered an amended draft of the non-binding letter of intent, signalling Small Pharma’s interest in pursuing a potential transaction, subject to adjustment to various terms including consideration, deal protections, board representation, the terms of the post-transaction lock-up agreements, as well as being subject to ongoing due diligence and finalizing definitive transaction documents.
32


Following further negotiations, including a call on July 25, 2023, between management of Cybin, Small Pharma and its financial advisor, and the Parties’ respective legal counsel, the Parties reached an agreement on the non-binding letter of intent, including an increase in the proportionate share of the combined entity resulting from such a transaction that would be held by the Small Pharma Shareholders. On July 27, 2023, the Parties entered into the non-binding letter of intent, which provided for a 30-day exclusivity period (subject to extension under certain circumstances) to complete initial due diligence and negotiate the Arrangement Agreement. Management of Cybin subsequently informed the Cybin Board that the non-binding letter of intent had been executed, and that due diligence and negotiations were underway.

On July 31, 2023, Cybin delivered an initial legal due diligence request list to Small Pharma, and on August 2, 2023, Small Pharma delivered an initial legal due diligence request list to Cybin. Pursuant to the terms of the confidentiality agreement, each Party received access to diligence materials of the other Party via a virtual data room.
Between July 27, 2023, and August 27, 2023, each of Cybin and Small Pharma, working with their respective financial, technical, and legal advisors, completed detailed reciprocal due diligence. During that time, senior executives of both companies and their respective legal counsel and financial advisors convened multiple meetings and phone calls to discuss certain due diligence matters and negotiate the terms of the Arrangement Agreement and related documentation.
On August 4, 2023, Cybin and its legal counsel, Gowling WLG, provided a draft arrangement agreement to Small Pharma’s legal counsel, Aird & Berlis, for its review and comment. Subsequent to the delivery of the draft arrangement agreement, the Parties and their respective legal counsel discussed various structuring matters. On August 11, 2023, Aird & Berlis formally replied to Gowling WLG with revisions to the draft arrangement agreement.
Between August 11 and August 28, 2023, the Cybin and Small Pharma transaction teams, assisted by their respective legal and financial advisors, negotiated the terms of the Arrangement Agreement as well as the forms ancillary documents including the Plan of Arrangement, Lock-up Agreement, and Voting Support Agreements, with a view to completing negotiations and, if desirable, seeking final approvals of the Cybin Board and Small Pharma Board. Over this period, representatives of Small Pharma, Cybin and their respective legal and financial advisors held numerous internal and/or all-party conference calls to discuss the progress of business and legal due diligence and to negotiate the Arrangement Agreement and ancillary documents. Numerous drafts of the Arrangement Agreement and ancillary documents were exchanged by the Parties and their legal advisors.
On August 25, 2023, management of Cybin notified the Cybin Board that it appeared that a transaction with Small Pharma could be accomplished, and provided an update on the terms of the Arrangement Agreement that had been negotiated, the strategic rationale of the transaction, and preliminary due diligence findings. On August 27, 2023, the directors and executive officers of Cybin were presented with the Small Pharma Voting Support Agreement, and the directors and executive officers of Small Pharma were presented with the Cybin Voting Support Agreement, for their respective consideration and execution.
On August 27, 2023, with the approval of Small Pharma’s management, Mr. Tziras and Mr. Drysdale approached Peter Rands, a significant Small Pharma Shareholder, in connection with the proposed Arrangement. Mr. Drysdale presented Mr. Rands with a form of Cybin Voting Support Agreement and Lock-up Agreement, and requested that he and the beneficial owner of any other Small Pharma Shares over which he had control or direction execute a Cybin Voting Support Agreement. Mr. Rands, Mr. Drysdale and Mr. Tziras negotiated the terms of such agreements until the early morning of August 28, 2023.
On August 27, 2023, the Cybin Board met formally to consider the merits of the Arrangement and final terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement and ancillary documents. The Cybin Board members were joined by representatives of Gowling WLG, and members of management. During this meeting, Cybin management presented to the Cybin Board its conclusions and analyses of the potential benefits and risks of the Arrangement, including key transaction terms and conditions, and the results of their due diligence investigation. Representatives of Gowling WLG provided an overview of the specific terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement and other ancillary documents, and answered questions from the Cybin Board. The Cybin Board carefully considered management’s advice on the potential synergies that could come from the Arrangement, the consideration and share exchange ratio, the amount of the Termination Fees, provisions requiring Cybin to reimburse Small Pharma’s expenses under certain circumstances, the other proposed terms of the Arrangement Agreement and Plan of Arrangement, as well as the other the factors set out below under “Reasons for the Arrangement”. The Cybin Board also considered each Party’s shareholder approval requirements, the Voting Support
33


Agreements to be entered into by the Cybin Supporting Shareholders and the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders, and the Lock-Up Agreements to be entered into by the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders on the Effective Date.
After duly considering the transaction terms, the benefits and risks associated with the Arrangement, and other considerations such as potential impacts of the Arrangement on the Cybin Shareholders and other stakeholders, and the timing of the Arrangement, the Cybin Board, among other things, unanimously: (i) determined that the Arrangement is in the best interests of Cybin; (ii) approved the Arrangement Agreement, and (iii) and resolved to recommend that Cybin Shareholders vote in favour of the Acquisition Resolution. The Cybin Board also authorized management to finalize the form of the Arrangement Agreement the related transaction documents, and execute and deliver them on behalf of Cybin. The determinations of the Cybin Board were confirmed by a written resolution early in the morning on August 28, 2023.
The Arrangement Agreement, the Small Pharma Voting Support Agreements, and the Cybin Voting Support Agreements were entered into early in the morning on August 28, 2023. Following a brief halt in trading of the Cybin Shares and the Small Pharma Shares, the execution of the Arrangement Agreement was publicly announced by joint press release. Later in the morning on August 28, 2023, the Parties provided a webcast presentation regarding the proposed Arrangement.
Recommendation of the Board
The Cybin Board, after careful consideration, including a thorough review of the Arrangement Agreement, as well as a thorough review of other matters, including those discussed in this Circular, has unanimously: (i) determined that the Arrangement and the entry into the Arrangement Agreement are in the best interests of Cybin; (ii) approved the Arrangement Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby; and (iii) resolved to recommend that Cybin Shareholders vote in favour of the Acquisition Resolution (collectively, the “Cybin Board Recommendation”).
The Cybin Board unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution.
In coming to its conclusion and recommendations the Cybin Board considered, among others, the following factors:
(a)    the purpose and anticipated benefits of the Arrangement as outlined under “Background to the Arrangement & RecommendationsReasons for the Arrangement” and elsewhere in this Circular;
(b)    information concerning the financial condition, results of operations, business plans and prospects of Cybin, and the resulting potential for the enhancement of the business efficiency, management effectiveness and financial results of Post-Arrangement Cybin;
(c)    the alternatives available to Cybin; and
(d)    the potential risks and negative factors relating to the Arrangement, as outlined under “Background to the Arrangement & RecommendationsReasons for the Arrangement”, “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Circular.
The foregoing discussion of the information and factors considered by the Cybin Board is not intended to be exhaustive.
Reasons for the Arrangement
In the course of its evaluation of the Arrangement and in reaching the Cybin Board Recommendation, the Cybin Board consulted with Cybin’s senior management, and its legal counsel, and considered a number of strategic, financial and operational factors and potential benefits and risks of the Arrangement, including, without limitation, those listed below, and in light of the Cybin Board’s knowledge of the business, financial condition and prospects of Cybin.
The following is a summary of certain primary factors considered and relied upon by the Cybin Board in reaching its unanimous recommendation that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution:
    Highly Complementary and Diversified Asset Portfolio. The combination creates an international, clinical-stage leader, with an expanded portfolio of clinical-stage psychedelic assets (CYB003 – Cybin’s proprietary deuterated psilocybin analog, CYB004 – Cybin’s proprietary deuterated DMT molecule, SPL028 – Small Pharma’s
34


deuterated DMT, and SPL026 – Small Pharma’s first generation DMT) and pre-clinical assets that are highly complementary. Post-Arrangement Cybin’s combined DMT programs will constitute a significantly expanded dataset of systematic research on these short-duration psychedelic molecules, strengthening Post-Arrangement Cybin’s ability to make informed, data-driven strategic decisions for its development programs, increasing the likelihood of success.
·    Enhanced and Diversified Development Potential. Post-Arrangement Cybin will be able to pursue an expanded development portfolio, with multiple milestones anticipated to be initiated and/or completed over the next 12 to 18 months. This includes, but is not limited to: (i) determining safety and efficacy interactions of DMT in patients with MDD on SSRIs; (ii) first in-human readouts of deuterated DMT compounds using IV (CYB004 and SPL028) and IM (SPL028) routes of administration; (iii) efficacy, safety and tolerability readout of CYB003 in MDD patients; and, (iv) subject to the availability of financing and applicable regulatory approvals: (a) initiation of a pivotal efficacy study of CYB003; and (b) initiation of an efficacy study on a deuterated DMT compound. The addition of Small Pharma’s experience and expertise in the United Kingdom and Europe will increase Cybin’s ability to advance research and development activities in those markets.
·    Strengthened Intellectual Property Portfolio. Post-Arrangement Cybin will hold the most impressive intellectual property portfolio in the psychedelic drug development sector. Based on patents and patent applications held by Cybin and Small Pharma as of the date of this Circular, Post-Arrangement Cybin will hold 160 pending patent applications, including five allowed applications, as well as 30 granted patents protecting its clinical and preclinical molecules. This extensive intellectual property portfolio creates an unmatched opportunity for Post-Arrangement Cybin to develop next-generation novel compounds for a number of mental health disorders that may be amenable to treatment with psychedelic therapies.
·    Operational and Financial Synergies. Post-Arrangement Cybin is expected to benefit from significant operational and financial synergies through the combination of the Parties’ research and development portfolios, and corporate general and administrative cost savings.
·    Improved Financial Position. Post-Arrangement Cybin will have, on a pro forma basis as at June 30, 2023, estimated cash of approximately $17.66 million, as well as access to two accessible financing arrangements, including (i) an at-the-market equity program that allows Cybin to issue and sell up to US$35 million of Cybin Shares, from time to time, which was renewed by Cybin in August 2023; and (ii) a common share purchase agreement with LPC dated May 30, 2023 whereby Cybin has the right to sell, and LPC is obligated to purchase, up to US$30 million of Cybin Shares over a 36-month period (of which US$29.5 million remains unsold as at the date of this Circular).
·    Strong Research and Development and Leadership Teams. Stakeholders will benefit from the combination of two experienced biotechnology teams with a proven track record of success across the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. George Tziras, Small Pharma’s Chief Executive Officer, will also be joining the Cybin Board.
·    Consideration of Alternatives. Taking into account the degree to which Small Pharma’s assets and operations complement those of Cybin, organic growth opportunities currently available to Cybin, and other potential acquisition opportunities, management of Cybin and the Cybin Board have assessed the alternatives reasonably available. The completion of the Arrangement is consistent with Cybin’s strategic objectives, which include the development of its existing clinical- and pre-clinical-stage assets, and the pursuit through acquisition of additional clinical and pre-clinical-stage assets that contribute to corporate growth. Cybin believes that Post-Arrangement Cybin will be better positioned to pursue a value maximizing strategy as a result of the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement.
·    Strong Director, Officer and Shareholder Support. The Arrangement has strong director, officer, and shareholder support. All of the directors and senior officers of Cybin, and certain shareholders of Cybin, who collectively hold approximately 17% of the issued and outstanding Cybin Shares as at the record date of August 30, 2023 (the “Record Date”) have entered into support and voting agreements with Small Pharma concurrently
35


with the execution of the Arrangement Agreement pursuant to which they have agreed, among other things, to vote their Cybin Shares in favour of the Acquisition Resolution at the Meeting and otherwise support the Arrangement.
·    In addition, each of the directors and executive officers of Small Pharma who owns Small Pharma Shares, and Small Pharma’s largest shareholder, who collectively hold or exercise control or direction over approximately 28.8% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement, have entered into support and voting agreements with Cybin concurrently with the execution of the Arrangement Agreement pursuant to which they have agreed, among other things, to support the Arrangement and vote their Small Pharma Shares in favour of the resolution to approve the Arrangement at the Small Pharma Meeting. See “Support and Voting Agreements”.
In the course of its deliberations, the Cybin Board also considered the various procedural and qualitative safeguards provided by the terms of the Arrangement Agreement to protect the interests of Cybin and Cybin Shareholders, including:
·    Shareholder Approval. The Acquisition Resolution must be approved by a simple majority of the votes cast on the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders present (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Meeting. See “The ArrangementRequired ApprovalsShareholder Approvals”.
·    Detailed Due Diligence. Cybin, including its management and legal and finance teams, with assistance from outside legal advisors, completed a detailed diligence review of Small Pharma, including its material intellectual property and clinical trials.
·    Deal Protections and Right to Match. The Arrangement Agreement provides express limitations on Small Pharma’s ability to solicit interest from third parties, and in addition, provides that Cybin shall have the right to match any unsolicited Acquisition Proposal received prior to the approval of the Arrangement Resolution and Acquisition Resolution by Small Pharma Shareholders and Cybin Shareholders, respectively, that constitutes a Superior Proposal for the Small Pharma Shares. In the event of a termination of the Arrangement Agreement by Small Pharma in response to a Superior Proposal received by Small Pharma, the amount of the Termination Fee payable to Cybin is reasonable in the circumstances. See “The Arrangement AgreementNon-Solicitation Covenants and Right to Match” and “The Arrangement Agreement Expenses and Termination Fees”.
The Cybin Board also considered a number of potential risks in respect of the Arrangement, including:
·    Risk of Non-Completion. The risks to Cybin if the Arrangement is not completed, including the costs to Cybin in resources and management attention in pursuing the Arrangement and the restrictions on Cybin’s conduct of its business prior to the completion of the Arrangement.
·    Termination Rights. The right of Small Pharma to terminate the Arrangement Agreement under certain limited circumstances.
·    Required Approvals. The potential risk of not obtaining certain consents from third parties required to complete the Arrangement, including from the Court, Small Pharma Shareholders, Cybin Shareholders or any other third party whose consent is required including, without limitation, Regulatory Approvals.
·    Termination Fee and Expense Reimbursement. The Termination Fee payable to Small Pharma in certain circumstances, including if Cybin enters into an agreement with a third party to acquire Cybin that constitutes a Superior Proposal. Additionally, in certain circumstances, the Expense Reimbursement Amount may be payable to Small Pharma.
The Cybin Board’s reasons for recommending the Arrangement include certain assumptions relating to forward-looking statements, and such information and assumptions are subject to various risks. See “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors in this Circular.
The information and factors described above and considered by the Cybin Board in reaching the Cybin Board Recommendation are not intended to be exhaustive, but include material factors considered by the Cybin Board. In its
36


evaluation of the Arrangement and in reaching the Cybin Board Recommendation, the Cybin Board did not quantify or otherwise attempt to assign any relative or specific weights to the foregoing factors, and individual directors may have assigned different weightings to different factors.
The Cybin Board realized that there are risks associated with the Arrangement, including that some of the potential benefits set forth above may not be realized or that there may be significant costs associated with realizing such benefits. The Cybin Board believes that the factors in favour of the Arrangement outweigh the risks and potential disadvantages, although there can be no assurance in this regard. See “Risk Factors”.

No fractional Cybin Shares will be issued in connection with the Arrangement. Instead, in the event that a former Small Pharma Securityholder would otherwise be entitled to a fractional Consideration Share, the number of Cybin Shares to be issued to such Small Pharma Securityholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole Cybin Share, without additional compensation.
The issuance of the Cybin Shares pursuant to the Arrangement, and the Arrangement itself, will not result in a material impact on the control or direction over Cybin.

Small Pharma Shares
As at the date of the Arrangement Agreement and as at the date of this Circular, there are 324,453,787 Small Pharma Shares outstanding.
Under the terms of the Arrangement, each Small Pharma Share outstanding at the Effective Time (other than Small Pharma Shares held by Dissenting Shareholders) will be deemed to be transferred to Cybin in exchange for the Consideration. The Exchange Ratio implies a consideration of approximately $0.10 per Small Pharma Share based on the closing price of the Cybin Shares of $0.415 on the Cboe Canada on August 25, 2023 (being the last trading day prior to the signing of the Arrangement Agreement).
Each Small Pharma Share held by Dissenting Shareholders will be deemed to have been transferred to Small Pharma (free and clear of any encumbrances), without any further act or formality, and such Dissenting Shareholders will cease to have any rights as a Small Pharma Shareholder other than the right to be paid the fair value for their Small Pharma Shares by Small Pharma.
The Plan of Arrangement provides that Small Pharma Shares not deposited together with a duly completed Letter of Transmittal and all other required documents on or before the sixth anniversary of the Effective Date will be automatically cancelled without any repayment of capital in respect thereof.
Small Pharma Options
Pursuant to the Arrangement, all of the Small Pharma Options outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will cease to exists on the following basis: (i) each In-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether vested or unvested) shall be and shall be deemed to be, exercised and surrendered to Small Pharma for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered In-the-Money Small Pharma Option, the Option Consideration; and (ii) each Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option outstanding at the Effective Time, shall be, and shall be deemed to be, surrendered to Small Pharma for cancellation and the holders thereof shall receive, in respect of each such surrendered Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option, a cash payment from the Small Pharma equal to $0.001 per Out-of-the-Money Small Pharma Option.
As at the date of the Arrangement Agreement and as at the date of this Circular, there are 22,211,350 Small Pharma Options outstanding. At the Effective Time, assuming that the Small Pharma Share Value will be approximately $0.10 per Small Pharma Share, 11,828,850 Small Pharma Options would be In-the-Money Small Pharma Options. All such Small Pharma Options are expected to be exercised prior to the Effective Time. Accordingly, no Cybin Shares are expected to be issued upon the deemed exercise and surrender of In-the-Money Small Pharma Options pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement.
Cybin Shares
As at the date of the Arrangement Agreement and as at the Record Date, there are 234,683,234 Cybin Shares outstanding.
If the Arrangement is completed, approximately 81,010,487 Cybin Shares are expected to be issued to Small Pharma Shareholders. Immediately following the completion of the Arrangement, current Cybin Shareholders and Former Small Pharma Shareholders are expected to own approximately 74.3% and 25.7% of the outstanding Cybin Shares, respectively, as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement, and assuming that: (i) no Small Pharma Shareholders will exercise Dissent Rights; (ii) 11,828,850 Small Pharma Options will be exercised prior to the Effective Time; (iii) no other Small Pharma Options will be Small Pharma In-the-Money Options at the Effective Time, and (iv) no Cybin Shares will be issued prior to the Effective Time. The actual number of Cybin Shares that will be issued on the Effective Date will depend on the number of Small Pharma Shares issued and outstanding on the Effective Date.
Plan of Arrangement
The Plan of Arrangement sets out the steps and actions by which the Arrangement will be effected. The following is a summary only of the steps that will occur under the Plan of Arrangement on the Effective Date if all conditions to the completion of the Arrangement have been satisfied or waived. The following description of steps is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Plan of Arrangement, which is attached as Schedule B to this Circular.

(d)    each Small Pharma Share outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time including, for greater certainty Small Pharma Shares issued at the Effective Time pursuant to paragraph (a)(i) above, other than Dissent Shares or Small Pharma Shares held by Cybin, shall be transferred to Cybin without any further act or formality by such former Small Pharma Shareholder free and clear of any encumbrances, and each such Former Small Pharma Shareholder shall be removed from Small Pharma’s central securities register of holders of Small Pharma Shares, and in consideration thereof, each such Former Small Pharma Shareholders shall receive the Share Consideration, subject to any withholding pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement.

The Court hearing in respect of the Final Order is scheduled to take place on or about October 17, 2023 at 12:45 p.m. (Toronto time) (9:45 a.m. Vancouver time), or as soon thereafter as the hearing of the Final Order can be heard or at such other date and time as the Court may direct.

Also see “Interest of Certain Persons in Matters to be Acted Upon”.
Required Approvals
Shareholder Approvals
Cybin Shareholder Approval
The Cboe Canada requires shareholder approval of an acquisition in circumstances where the total number of securities issuable by a listed issuer pursuant to the acquisition is more than 25% of the total number of securities of the listed issuer outstanding (calculated on a non-diluted basis). Pursuant to the Arrangement, Cybin expects to issue 81,010,487 Cybin Shares to Former Small Pharma Shareholders, representing approximately 34.5% of the 234,683,234 issued and outstanding Cybin Shares on a non-diluted basis as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement. Accordingly, at the Meeting, Cybin Shareholders will be asked to approve the Acquisition Resolution.
The full text of the Acquisition Resolution is set out in Schedule A. Also, see “The ArrangementEffects of the Arrangement”.
The Acquisition Resolution must be approved at the Meeting by a simple majority of the votes cast on the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders present (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Meeting. If the Acquisition Resolution is not approved by Cybin Shareholders, Cybin will not be able to satisfy the listing requirements of the Cboe Canada, and the Arrangement will not proceed.
40


Recommendation: The Cybin Board unanimously recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the Acquisition Resolution.
Proxies: Unless otherwise instructed, proxies in favour of the management designees will be VOTED FOR the Acquisition Resolution.
Notwithstanding the approval of the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders at the Meeting, the Acquisition Resolution authorizes the Cybin Board, without further notice to or approval of the Cybin Shareholders, to elect not to proceed with the Arrangement or to revoke and not give effect to the Acquisition Resolution.
Small Pharma Shareholder Approval
It is a condition to the completion of the Arrangement that the Arrangement Resolution be approved at the Small Pharma Meeting.
Pursuant to the terms of the Interim Order, the Arrangement Resolution must, subject to further order of the Court, be approved by at least 66 ⅔% of the votes cast on the Arrangement Resolution by the Small Pharma Shareholders present in person (virtually) or represented by proxy at the Small Pharma Meeting (the “Small Pharma Shareholder Approval”).
Court Approvals
Interim Order
On September 13, 2023, the Court granted the Interim Order which provides for the calling and holding of the Small Pharma Meeting and other procedural matters.
Final Order
The BCBCA provides that a plan of arrangement requires Court approval. Subject to the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, if the Acquisition Resolution and the Arrangement Resolution are approved at the Meeting and the Small Pharma Meeting, respectively, Small Pharma intends to make an application to the Court for the Final Order.
The Court hearing in respect of the Final Order is expected to take place on or about October 17, 2023 via teleconference at 9:45 a.m. (Vancouver time), or as soon thereafter as counsel may be heard. At the Final Order hearing, the Court will consider, among other things, the fairness of the terms and conditions of the Arrangement and the rights and interests of every person affected. The Court may approve the Arrangement in any manner the Court may direct, subject to compliance with such terms and conditions, if any, as the Court deems fit. There can be no assurance that the Court will approve the Arrangement.
Stock Exchange Listings
Small Pharma is a reporting issuer under the securities Laws of each province and territory of Canada. The Small Pharma Shares are listed and posted for trading on the TSXV under the symbol “DMT” and are quoted on the OTCQB under the symbol “DMTFF”.
On August 25, 2023, the last trading day prior to announcement of the Arrangement, the closing price of the Small Pharma Shares on the TSXV was $0.085. On September 12, 2023, the last trading day prior to the date of this Circular, the closing price of the Small Pharma Shares on the TSXV was $0.09.
As soon as practicable following completion of the Arrangement, Cybin intends to apply to applicable Canadian securities regulators to have Small Pharma cease to be a reporting issuer and to have the Small Pharma Shares delisted from the TSXV and removed from quotation on the OTCQB.
Cybin is a reporting issuer under the securities Laws of each province and territory of Canada. The Cybin Shares are listed on the Cboe Canada under the trading symbol “CYBN” and on the NYSE American under the symbol “CYBN”.
41


It is a condition to the completion of the Arrangement that the Cboe Canada and NYSE American will have conditionally approved the listing of the Consideration Shares, subject only to customary conditions. The Cboe Canada has approved the Arrangement (including the listing of the Consideration Shares), subject to approval of the Cybin Shareholders, and Cybin has applied to the NYSE American to list the Consideration Shares. The NYSE American has not conditionally approved the listing of the Consideration shares as at the date of this Circular. Listing will be conditional on Cybin satisfying the standard listing conditions imposed by each exchange.
For information with respect to the trading history of the Cybin Shares and the Small Pharma Shares, see “Price Range and Trading Volumes of Cybin Shares” and “Market for SecuritiesTrading Price and Volume” in Schedule C of this Circular and in the Small Pharma AIF, respectively.
Securities Laws Matters
Canadian Securities Laws
The Cybin Shares distributed pursuant to the Arrangement will be issued in reliance on exemptions from the prospectus requirements of applicable Canadian Securities Laws, will generally be “freely tradable” and the resale of such Cybin Shares will be exempt from the prospectus requirements (and not subject to any “restricted period” or “hold period”) under applicable Canadian Securities Laws if the following conditions are met: (i) the trade is not a control distribution (as defined under applicable Canadian Securities Laws); (ii) no unusual effort is made to prepare the market or to create a demand for Cybin Shares; (iii) no extraordinary commission or consideration is paid to a person or company in respect of the trade; and (iv) if the selling shareholder is an insider or an officer of Cybin, the selling securityholder has no reasonable grounds to believe that Cybin is in default of securities legislation.
U.S. Securities Laws
The issuance of the Cybin Shares to Small Pharma Securityholders in exchange for Small Pharma Shares (including Small Pharma Shares issued upon the exchange for In-the-Money Small Pharma Options pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement) has not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act or the securities laws of any state of the United States. Such securities will be issued in reliance upon the Section 3(a)(10) Exemption and exemptions from applicable U.S. Securities Laws. The Section 3(a)(10) Exemption exempts the issuance of securities issued in exchange for one or more bona fide outstanding securities from the general requirement of registration under the U.S. Securities Act where the terms and conditions of the issuance and exchange of such securities have been determined to be substantively and procedurally fair to the persons to whom the securities will be issued by a court of competent jurisdiction, expressly authorized by Law to grant such approval, after a hearing upon the fairness of the terms and conditions of the issuance and exchange at which all persons to whom the securities will be issued have the right to appear and receive timely and adequate notice thereof. The Court is authorized to conduct a hearing at which the fairness of the terms and conditions of the Arrangement will be considered. The Court granted the Interim Order on September 13, 2023 and, subject to the approval of the Arrangement Resolution by Small Pharma Shareholders and of the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders, a hearing on the Arrangement will be held on or about October 17, 2023 by the Court. Accordingly, the Final Order, if granted, will constitute a basis for the Section 3(a)(10) Exemption from the registration requirement of the U.S. Securities Act. See “The ArrangementRequired Approvals Court Approvals”. The issuance of the Consideration Shares to Small Pharma Securityholders in exchange for the Small Pharma Shares or In-the-Money Small Pharma Options, in each case pursuant to the Arrangement, will, therefore, be exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act pursuant to the Section 3(a)(10) Exemption.
The Consideration Shares to be received by Small Pharma Securityholders pursuant to the Arrangement may be resold without restriction under the U.S. Securities Act, except by persons who are “affiliates” (as defined in Rule 144) of Cybin after the Effective Date or who have been affiliates of Cybin within 90 days before the Effective Date. Persons who may be deemed to be affiliates of an issuer generally include individuals or entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with, the issuer, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise, and generally include executive officers and directors of the issuer as well as principal shareholders of the issuer. Any resale of Consideration Shares by such an affiliate (or, if applicable, former affiliate) may be subject to the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act, absent an exemption therefrom. Subject to certain limitations, such affiliates (and former affiliates) may immediately resell such Consideration Shares outside the United States without registration under the U.S.
42


Securities Act pursuant to and in accordance with Regulation S. Such Consideration Shares may also be resold in transactions completed in accordance with Rule 144 under the U.S. Securities Act, if available.
The foregoing discussion is only a general overview of certain requirements of certain requirements of United States federal securities Laws that may be applicable to the resale of Cybin Shares to be received upon completion of the Arrangement. All holders of such securities are urged to consult with counsel to ensure that the resale of their securities complies with applicable Securities Laws. The foregoing discussion does not address the Canadian Securities Laws that will apply to the issue to, or the resale within Canada of, the Cybin Shares by U.S. shareholders. U.S. shareholders reselling their Cybin Shares in Canada must comply with Canadian Securities Laws, as outlined above under “Securities Laws MattersCanadian Securities Laws”.

Under the Arrangement Agreement, each Party has agreed to certain non-solicitation covenants, including that such Party shall not, except as expressly provided in the Arrangement Agreement, directly or indirectly, including through any Representative:
(a)    make, solicit, initiate, facilitate, encourage or promote (including by way of providing access to or disclosure of any non-public information relating to such Party or its subsidiaries, providing access to any properties, facilities, books or records of such Party or its subsidiaries, or entering into any form of agreement, arrangement or understanding) any proposal, inquiry or offer that constitutes, or may reasonably be expected to constitute or lead to, an Acquisition Proposal, or agree to or endorse any of the foregoing;
(b)    enter into or otherwise engage or participate in any discussions or negotiations with any Person (other than the Other Party) regarding any proposal, inquiry or offer that constitutes, or may reasonably be expected to constitute or lead to, an Acquisition Proposal;

(e)    enter into, or publicly propose to enter into, any letter of intent, agreement in principle, agreement, arrangement, understanding or undertaking related to any Acquisition Proposal (other than a confidentiality and standstill agreement as contemplated in Section 5.4(b)(v)(A) of the Arrangement Agreement).
Each Party has covenanted to the Other Party that it will cause its subsidiaries and representatives to immediately cease and cause to be terminated any existing solicitation, encouragement, discussion or negotiation with any persons commenced prior to the date of the Arrangement Agreement, its subsidiaries or any representatives with respect to any Acquisition Proposal, and, in connection therewith, such Party will discontinue access to any of its confidential information (and not establish or allow access to any of its confidential information, or any data room, virtual or otherwise) and shall as soon as possible request, to the extent that it is entitled to do so (and exercise all rights it has to require), the return or destruction of all confidential information regarding such Party and its subsidiaries previously provided to any such person or any other
50


person and will request, to the extent it is entitled to do so (and exercise all rights it has to require), the destruction of all material including or incorporating or otherwise reflecting any material confidential information regarding such Party and its subsidiaries. Each Party has agreed that neither it nor any of its subsidiaries, shall terminate, waive, amend or modify any provision of any existing confidentiality agreement relating to an Acquisition Proposal or any standstill agreement to which it or any of its subsidiaries is a party or becomes party to in accordance with the Arrangement Agreement, and each Party has undertaken to enforce all standstill, non-disclosure, non-disturbance, non-solicitation and similar covenants that it or any of its subsidiaries have entered into prior to the date of the Arrangement Agreement.
The foregoing restrictions are subject to “fiduciary out” provisions, which provide that if at any time following the date of the Arrangement Agreement and prior to obtaining the Cybin Shareholder Approval or the Small Pharma Shareholder Approval, as applicable:
(a)    a Party receives a bona fide, written Acquisition Proposal that did not result from a breach of the Arrangement Agreement and that the Cybin Board or the Small Pharma Board, as applicable, determines in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, constitutes or, if consummated in accordance with its terms, could reasonably be expected to lead to a Superior Proposal, then such Party may in response to a request made by the person making such Acquisition Proposal, provided it is in compliance with the Arrangement Agreement:
(i)    furnish non-public information with respect to the Party and its subsidiaries to the person making such Acquisition Proposal; and/or
(ii)    enter into, participate, facilitate and maintain discussions or negotiations with, and otherwise cooperate with or assist, the person making such Acquisition Proposal,
provided that such Party shall not, and shall not allow its representatives to, under any circumstances waive any confidentiality or standstill provision or agreement that would otherwise prohibit such person from making such Acquisition Proposal or disclose any non-public information to such person: (i) if such non-public information has not been previously provided to, or is not concurrently provided to the Other Party; and (ii) unless prior to disclosing any such information, the Party shall enter into a confidentiality agreement (on terms deemed acceptable under the Arrangement Agreement) with such person; provided, however, that any such agreement shall not preclude such person from making a Superior Proposal and no such agreement shall be required if such person is already party to a confidentiality agreement with such Party; and
(b)    a Party receives an Acquisition Proposal that did not result in a breach of the Arrangement Agreement and which the Cybin Board or the Small Pharma Board, as applicable, concludes in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, constitutes a Superior Proposal, it may, subject to the right to match provisions of the Arrangement Agreement and compliance with the procedures and payment of fees set forth in the Arrangement Agreement, terminate the Arrangement Agreement to enter into a definitive agreement with respect to such Superior Proposal.
In addition, nothing contained in the Arrangement Agreement prohibits a Party from taking any action or making a Change in Recommendation or from making any disclosure to any of its securityholders prior to the Effective Time, if, in the good faith judgment of the Cybin Board or the Small Pharma Board, as applicable, after consultation with outside legal counsel, failure to take such action or make such disclosure would be inconsistent with such board of directors’ exercise of its fiduciary duties or such action or disclosure is otherwise required under applicable Law (including by responding to an Acquisition Proposal under a directors’ circular or otherwise as required under Securities Laws).
Pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement, each Party has agreed to promptly notify the Other Party, at first orally and then in writing within 24 hours of receipt of any Acquisition Proposal, including a description of the material terms and conditions thereof, and the identity of the person or persons making the Acquisition Proposal, and shall provide the Other Party with a copy of any such proposal, inquiry, offer or request, and a copy of any agreement entered into in accordance with the Arrangement Agreement. Such Party shall thereafter also provide such other details of such proposal, inquiry, offer or request, or any amendment to any of the foregoing, as the Other Party may reasonably request and shall keep the Other Party promptly informed as to the status, including any changes to the material terms, of such proposal, inquiry, offer or
51


request, or any amendment to any of the foregoing, and shall respond promptly to all reasonable inquiries from the Other Party with respect thereto.
For the complete text of the applicable provisions, see section 5.2 and 5.3 of the Arrangement Agreement.
Cybin Right to Match
The Arrangement Agreement provides that, if at any time following the date of the Arrangement Agreement and prior to Small Pharma obtaining the Small Pharma Shareholder Approval at the Small Pharma Meeting, Small Pharma receives an Acquisition Proposal that the Small Pharma Board, concludes in good faith, after consultation with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, constitutes a Superior Proposal, it may enter into an Acquisition Agreement in respect of such Superior Proposal, provided that:
(a)    Small Pharma has complied in all material respects with its obligations under the Arrangement Agreement;
(b)    the person making the Acquisition Proposal was not restricted from doing so under any existing confidentiality, standstill or similar agreement with Small Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries;
(c)    Small Pharma has delivered to Cybin: (i) written notice that the Small Pharma Board has determined (A) that the Acquisition Proposal constitutes a Superior Proposal, and (B) subject to Cybin’s rights under Section 5.5(c) of the Arrangement Agreement to enter into the Acquisition Agreements; (ii) written notice of the cash value, or range of values, ascribed by the Small Pharma Board to any non-cash consideration offered in the Superior Proposal (iii) a copy of the Acquisition Agreement (in final form, but unexecuted by Small Pharma); and (iv) all documents required to be delivered by Small Pharma under Section 5.5(c) of the Arrangement Agreement;
(d)    a period of five Business Days (the “Match Period”), or more, has elapsed from the date on which all documents required by paragraph (b)(iv) above have been delivered;
(e)    Small Pharma has complied with its obligations under pursuant to the Match Period and the Small Pharma Board has determined in good faith, after consulting with its financial advisors and outside legal counsel, that the Acquisition Proposal still constitutes a Superior Proposal; and
(f)    Small Pharma has paid or concurrently pays to Cybin the Small Pharma Termination Fee and Small Pharma terminates the Arrangement Agreement.
During the Match Period, Cybin will have the right, but not the obligation, to offer to amend the Arrangement Agreement and the Plan of Arrangement, including modification of the Consideration. In the event Cybin exercises this right to match, the Arrangement Agreement provides as follows:
(a)    the Small Pharma Board will review any such offer by Cybin in good faith in order to determine whether the Acquisition Proposal to which Small Pharma is responding would continue to be a Superior Proposal when assessed against Cybin’s amended offer; and
(b)    Small Pharma will (and will cause its financial and legal advisors to) negotiate in good faith with Cybin (and its financial and legal advisors) to make any adjustments to the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement that would result in the Acquisition Proposal ceasing to be a Superior Proposal.
For the complete text of the applicable provisions, see section 5.5 of the Arrangement Agreement.

(iii)    if there has occurred a Material Adverse Effect with respect to the Other Party that is incapable of being cured prior to the Outside Date;
(iv)    if there shall be enacted or made any Law (or any such Law shall have been amended) that makes consummation of the Arrangement illegal or otherwise prohibited or enjoins Cybin or the Small Pharma from consummating the Arrangement and such Law (if applicable) or enjoinment shall have become final and non-appealable; or
(v)    if the Other Party intentionally or materially breaches certain non-solicitation covenants.
For the complete text of the applicable provisions, see section 7.1 of the Arrangement Agreement.
Amendments
The Arrangement Agreement and the Plan of Arrangement may, at any time and from time to time before or after the holding of the Small Pharma Meeting but not later than the Effective Time, be amended by mutual written agreement of the Parties, without further notice to or authorization on the part of Small Pharma’s Securityholders and any such amendment may, subject to the Interim Order and the Final Order and applicable Law, without limitation:
(a)    change the time for performance of any of the obligations or acts of the Parties;
(b)    modify any representation or warranty contained in the Arrangement Agreement or in any document delivered pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement;
(c)    modify any of the covenants contained in the Arrangement Agreement and waive or modify performance of any of the obligations of the Parties; and/or
(d)    modify any mutual conditions contained in the Arrangement Agreement.
For the complete text of the applicable provisions, see section 9.1 of the Arrangement Agreement.
Support and Voting Agreements
Cybin Support and Voting Agreements
Effective August 28, 2023, each of the directors and senior officers of Cybin and certain significant shareholders of Cybin, who, in the aggregate, beneficially owned or exercised control or direction over, directly or indirectly, approximately 17% of the outstanding Cybin Shares as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement (on a non-diluted basis), have entered into a Cybin Support and Voting Agreement with Small Pharma pursuant to which they agreed, among other things, to vote, or cause to be voted, all of such Cybin Supporting Shareholders’ Cybin Shares: (i) in favour of the approval of the Acquisition Resolution, any other transactions contemplated in the Arrangement Agreement and any other matter necessary for the consummation of the Arrangement; (ii) against any Acquisition Proposal of Cybin; (iii) against any action, agreement, transaction or proposal that would result in a material breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or other obligation of Cybin in the Arrangement Agreement or of the Cybin Supporting Shareholder under the Cybin Support and Voting Agreement; and (iv) against any matter that could reasonably be expected to delay, prevent, impede or frustrate the
55


successful completion of the Arrangement or any of the transactions contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement. Additionally, each Cybin Supporting Shareholder has agreed to a number of customary negative covenants in furtherance of the consummation of the Arrangement.
Each Cybin Support and Voting Agreement may be terminated: (i) by Small Pharma, at any time by written notice to the Shareholder; (ii) by the applicable Cybin Supporting Shareholder if (A) Small Pharma breaches or is in default of any of the covenants or obligations of Small Pharma under the applicable Cybin Support and Voting Agreement and such breach or such default has or may reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect on the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement; or (B) any of the representations or warranties of Small Pharma under the applicable Cybin Support and Voting Agreement shall have been at the date of the applicable agreement, or subsequently become, untrue or incorrect, except to the extent any such failure to be true or correct would not preclude Small Pharma from consummating the Arrangement; provided in (A) and (B) that the applicable Cybin Supporting Shareholder has notified Small Pharma in writing of any of the foregoing events and the same has not been cured by Small Pharma within ten Business Days of the date such notice was received by Small Pharma; or (iii) by mutual agreement.
Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreements
Effective August 28, 2023, each of the directors and senior officers of Small Pharma who hold Small Pharma Shares, who beneficially owned or exercised control or direction over, directly or indirectly, approximately 2.5% of the outstanding Small Pharma Shares as at the date of the Arrangement Agreement (on a non-diluted basis) have entered into a Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement with Cybin pursuant to which they agreed, among other things, to vote, or cause to be voted, all of the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholders’ securities of Small Pharma which have a right to be voted at the Small Pharma Meeting: (i) in favour of the approval of the Arrangement Resolution, any other transactions contemplated in the Arrangement Agreement and any other matter necessary for the consummation of the Arrangement; (ii) against any Acquisition Proposal for Small Pharma; (iii) against any action, agreement, transaction or proposal that would result in a material breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or other obligation of Small Pharma in the Arrangement Agreement or of the Shareholder under the Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement; and (iv) against any matter that could reasonably be expected to delay, prevent, impede or frustrate the successful completion of the Arrangement or any of the transactions contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement. Additionally, each Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder has agreed to a number of customary negative covenants in furtherance of the consummation of the Arrangement.
Each Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement may be terminated: (i) by Cybin at any time upon written notice of to the applicable Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder; (ii) by the applicable Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder if (A) Cybin breaches or is in default of any of the covenants or obligations of Cybin under the applicable Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement and such breach or such default has or may reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect on the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement or (B) any of the representations or warranties of Cybin under the applicable Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement shall have been at of the date of the agreement, or subsequently become, untrue or incorrect, except to the extent any such failure to be true or correct would not preclude Cybin from consummating the Arrangement; provided in each case that the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder has notified Cybin in writing of any of the foregoing events and the same has not been cured by Cybin within ten business days of the date such notice was received by Cybin; or (iii) by mutual agreement.
Rands Support and Voting Agreement
Effective August 28, 2023, Peter Rands, who beneficially owned or exercised control or direction over, directly or indirectly, approximately 26.3% of the outstanding Small Pharma Shares as of the date of the Arrangement Agreement (on a non-diluted basis) has entered into the Rands Support and Voting Agreement with Cybin on substantially similar terms to the Small Pharma Support and Voting Agreement, except that during the period starting on the first trading day following the date on which Small Pharma files an information circular on SEDAR+ in respect of the Arrangement and ending on the Effective Date, Mr. Rands may offer for sale and sell up to an aggregate of 8,500,000 Small Pharma Shares through the facilities of the TSXV.
56


Lock-up Agreements
As a condition to closing the Arrangement and pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, each Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder will be required to enter into a Lock-up Agreement.
Each Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder other than Mr. Rands will enter into a Lock-up Agreement that provides that without the prior written consent of Cybin, during the period commencing on the Effective Date and expiring on the date that is 12 months after the Effective Date (the “Lock-up Period”), the Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder will not directly or indirectly:
(a)    offer, sell, contract to sell, lend, sell or grant any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, pledge, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer, dispose of or deal with any of the Cybin Shares issued to the applicable Small Pharma Supporting Shareholder (the “Locked-Up Shares”), or announce any intention to take any of the foregoing actions; or
(b)    enter into any swap or other similar arrangement that transfers to another, in whole or in part, any of the economic consequences of ownership of the Locked-Up Shares (the “Lock-up Restrictions”).
During the Lock-up Period, Locked-Up Share will be released from the Lock-up Restrictions as to 1/6 (one sixth) of the total number of Locked-Up Shares (rounding down any fractional shares) on each one-month anniversary of the Effective Date, starting on the date that is six months after the Effective Date until the expiry of the Lock-up Period.
Mr. Rands will enter into a Lock-Up Agreement on substantially similar terms, except that at the Effective Time, the Lock-up Restrictions will be released with respect to 2,047,650 Locked-Up Shares minus the number of Cybin Shares that is equal to the number of Small Pharma Shares sold or transferred by Mr. Rands between the date of the Arrangement Agreement and the Effective Date multiplied by the Exchange Ratio (rounding down any fractional shares). In addition, during the Lock-Up Period, if Mr. Rands or Ms. Knox proposes to sell any Buyer Shares during any 30-day period a number of Buyer Shares that exceeds 3% of the trading volume of the Buyer Shares on the NYSE American during the 20 trading days ended on the last trading day preceding such 30-day period, they will give Cybin a sale notice setting out the terms of the proposed sale, and Cybin will have the right, for a period of five business days, to elect to purchase or designate the purchasers for all or any part of such Cybin Shares at the price and on the terms set out in the sale notice. If, and to the extent that, Cybin does not, or its designated purchasers do not, confirm an intent to purchase all of the Cybin Shares referred to in the sale notice within such five business day period, or if Cybin or its designated purchasers do not complete the purchase of all of the Cybin Shares within 10 business days from the date on which Cybin received the sale notice, whichever occurs first, the applicable shareholder will have the right, for a period of 15 business days, to sell, without further notice to Cybin, the remaining Cybin Shares at a price not less, and on terms no more favorable, than the price and terms set out in the sale notice.
Risk Factors
Cybin Shareholders voting in favour of the Acquisition Resolution will be choosing to endorse the proposed acquisition of Small Pharma by Cybin. In addition to the risk factors present in each of Cybin’s and Small Pharma’s businesses, described under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Cybin AIF and Small Pharma AIF, which are incorporated by reference into this Circular, Cybin Shareholders should carefully consider the following risk factors specifically associated with the Arrangement in evaluating whether to approve the Acquisition Resolution. Readers are cautioned that such risk factors are not exhaustive. These risk factors should be considered in conjunction with the other information included in this Circular, including the documents incorporated by reference herein and documents filed by Cybin and Small Pharma pursuant to applicable Securities Laws from time to time.
Risk Factors Relating to the Arrangement
Arrangement may not be completed
Each of Cybin and Small Pharma has the right to terminate the Arrangement Agreement in certain circumstances. Accordingly, there is no certainty that the Arrangement will be completed in accordance with the terms of the Arrangement Agreement or the Plan of Arrangement, or at all.
57


In addition, the completion of the Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions precedent, certain of which are outside of the control of Cybin or Small Pharma. Among other things, the Arrangement is conditional upon the approval of the Arrangement Resolution by Small Pharma Shareholders, approval of the Acquisition Resolution by Cybin Shareholders, the Cboe Canada and NYSE American approval and Court approval. There can be no assurance that any or all such approvals will be obtained, or that Cybin will be able to satisfy the requirements under subsection 10.11(1)(b) of the NEO Exchange Listing Manual. A substantial delay in obtaining satisfactory approvals or the imposition of unfavourable terms or conditions in any approvals could have an adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of Small Pharma, Cybin or Post-Arrangement Cybin.
Arrangement Agreement may be terminated
Each of Cybin and Small Pharma has the right to terminate the Arrangement Agreement in certain circumstances. Accordingly, there is no certainty, nor can Cybin provide any assurance, that the Arrangement Agreement will not be terminated before the completion of the Arrangement. For instance, either Cybin or Small Pharma has the right, in certain circumstances, to terminate the Arrangement Agreement if changes occur that have a Material Adverse Effect on the Other Party. There is no assurance that a Material Adverse Effect will not occur before the Effective Date, in which case Cybin or Small Pharma could elect to terminate the Arrangement Agreement and the Arrangement would not proceed.
Cybin may be subject to a number of material risks relating to the Arrangement not being completed, including the following:
(a)    certain costs related to the Arrangement, such as legal, financial advisory and accounting fees must be paid by Cybin even if the Arrangement is not completed;
(b)    if the Arrangement is not completed, the market price of Cybin Shares may be adversely affected; and
(c)    Cybin may be required to pay the Cybin Termination Fee or the Expense Reimbursement Amount in certain circumstances.
Restrictions on Cybin prior to closing
The Arrangement Agreement restricts Cybin from taking specified actions until the Arrangement is completed, without the consent of Small Pharma. These restrictions may prevent Cybin from pursuing attractive business opportunities that may arise prior to completion of the Arrangement.
Fixed share consideration
The Exchange Ratio for the Consideration is fixed and will not increase or decrease due to fluctuations in the market price of Cybin Shares or Small Pharma Shares. The market price of Cybin Shares or Small Pharma Shares could each fluctuate significantly prior to the Effective Date in response to various factors and events, including, without limitation, the differences between Cybin’s and Small Pharma’s actual financial or operating results and those expected by investors and analysts, changes in analysts’ projections or recommendations, changes in general economic or market conditions, and broad market fluctuations. As a result of such fluctuations, historical market prices are not indicative of future market prices or the market value of the Consideration Shares to be issued on the Effective Date. There can also be no assurance that the trading price of the Cybin Shares will not decline following the completion of the Arrangement.
Risks related to Small Pharma’s business
While Cybin has completed due diligence investigations with respect to Small Pharma, certain risks may materialize, may not have been uncovered or are not known at this time. Such risks may have an adverse impact on Cybin and the combined assets of Cybin and Small Pharma following the Arrangement and may have a negative impact on the value of the Cybin Shares.
58


Cybin may become liable to pay the Termination Fee or the Expense Reimbursement Amount
If the Arrangement Agreement is terminated under certain circumstances, Cybin will be required to pay the Cybin Termination Fee to Small Pharma. The Cybin Termination Fee may discourage third parties from attempting to propose a significant business transaction with Cybin, even if a different transaction could provide better value than the Arrangement to Cybin Shareholders. If Cybin is required to pay the Termination Fee under the Arrangement Agreement, Cybin’s financial condition may be materially adversely affected. In addition, if the Arrangement Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances where the Cybin Shareholders have not approved the Acquisition Resolution, or if Cybin fails to comply with its representations, warranties, or covenants under the Arrangement Agreement, Cybin will be obligated to pay the Expense Reimbursement Amount to Small Pharma.
Small Pharma Shareholders may exercise Dissent Rights
Small Pharma Shareholders have the right to exercise Dissent Rights and demand payment equal to the fair value of their Small Pharma Shares in cash. Cybin’s obligation to complete the Arrangement is conditional upon Dissent Rights not being exercised by Small Pharma Shareholders holding more than 5% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares. Accordingly, the Arrangement may not be completed if Small Pharma Shareholders exercise Dissent Rights in respect of more than 5% of the issued and outstanding Small Pharma Shares and Cybin does not waive this condition to its obligation to complete the Arrangement. If Dissent Rights are exercised in respect of a significant number of Small Pharma Shares, a substantial cash payment may be required to be made to such Small Pharma Shareholders, which could have an adverse effect on Post-Arrangement Cybin’s financial condition and cash resources.
Litigation
Cybin and Small Pharma may be the target of securities class actions and derivative lawsuits which could result in substantial costs and may delay or prevent the Arrangement from being completed. Securities class action lawsuits and derivative lawsuits are often brought against companies that have entered into an agreement to acquire a public company or to be acquired. Third parties may also attempt to bring claims against Cybin and Small Pharma seeking to restrain the Arrangement or seeking monetary compensation or other remedies. Even if the lawsuits are without merit, defending against these claims can result in substantial costs and divert management time and resources. Additionally, if a plaintiff is successful in obtaining an injunction prohibiting consummation of the Arrangement, then that injunction may delay or prevent the Arrangement from being completed.
Diversion of management attention
The pending Arrangement could cause the attention of Cybin’s management to be diverted from the day-to-day operations of Cybin. These disruptions could be exacerbated by a delay in the completion of the Arrangement and could result in lost opportunities or negative impacts on performance, which could have a material and adverse effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations or prospects of Cybin if the Arrangement is not completed, and on the business of Cybin following the Effective Date.
Unknown or undisclosed risks or liabilities of Small Pharma
While Cybin conducted due diligence with respect to Small Pharma prior to entering into the Arrangement Agreement, there are risks inherent in any transaction. Specifically, there could be unknown or undisclosed risks or liabilities of Small Pharma for which Cybin is not permitted to terminate the Arrangement Agreement. Any such unknown or undisclosed risks or liabilities could materially and adversely affect Cybin’s financial performance and results of operations. Cybin could encounter additional transaction and enforcement-related costs and may fail to realize any or all of the potential benefits from the Arrangement Agreement. Any of the foregoing risks and uncertainties could have a material adverse effect on Cybin’s business, financial condition and results of operations.
Reliance on Small Pharma with respect to information regarding Small Pharma included in, or which may have been omitted from, this Circular.
Unless otherwise indicated, all historical information regarding Small Pharma contained in this Circular, including all Small Pharma financial information and all pro forma financial information reflecting the pro forma effects of the acquisition of
59


Small Pharma by Cybin, has been derived from Small Pharma’s publicly disclosed information or provided by Small Pharma. Although Cybin has no reason to doubt the accuracy or completeness of such information, any inaccuracy or material omission in Small Pharma’s publicly disclosed information, including the information about or relating to Small Pharma contained in this Circular, could result in unanticipated liabilities or expenses, increase the cost of integrating the companies or adversely affect Cybin’s operational and development plans and Cybin’s business, financial condition and results of operations.
Risk Factors Relating to Post-Arrangement Cybin
Possible failure to realize anticipated benefits of the Arrangement
Cybin and Small Pharma are proposing to complete the Arrangement for a variety of reasons, including to strengthen the position of each entity in the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical industries and to combine the assets of both companies to realize certain benefits, including those set forth in this Circular under the heading “Background to the Arrangement & RecommendationsReasons for the Arrangement”. Achieving the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement depends in part on the ability of Cybin to effectively fund and develop Post-Arrangement Cybin’s key projects, to realize the anticipated capital and operating synergies and to maximize the potential of its improved growth opportunities and anticipated capital funding opportunities. A variety of factors, including those risk factors set forth in this Circular and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, may adversely affect the ability of Post-Arrangement Cybin to achieve the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement.
Risks related to the integration of Cybin and Small Pharma
Post-Arrangement Cybin’s ability to realize the benefits of the Arrangement will depend in part on successfully consolidating functions and integrating operations, procedures and personnel in a timely and efficient manner, as well as on Post-Arrangement Cybin’s ability to realize the anticipated growth opportunities and synergies from integrating Small Pharma’s business following completion of the Arrangement. This integration will require the dedication of management effort, time and resources which may divert management’s focus and resources from other strategic opportunities available to Post-Arrangement Cybin, and from operational matters during this process.
In addition, the integration process could result in disruption of existing relationships with suppliers, employees, customers and other constituencies of Cybin and Small Pharma. There can be no assurance that management will be able to integrate the operations of each of the businesses successfully or achieve any of the synergies or other benefits that are anticipated to result from the Arrangement. The integration process is in the planning phase, and although most operational and strategic decisions have yet to be made, key decisions with respect to selected senior staffing positions and organization structure are progressing. These decisions and the integration of Cybin and Small Pharma will present challenges to management, including the integration of systems and personnel of the two geographically-separated companies, unanticipated liabilities and unanticipated costs. It is possible that the integration process could result in the loss of key employees, the disruption of the respective ongoing businesses or inconsistencies in standards, controls, procedures and policies that adversely affect the ability of management to maintain relationships with customers, suppliers, employees or to achieve the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement. The performance of Post-Arrangement Cybin’s operations could be adversely affected if it cannot retain key employees to assist in the integration and operation of Cybin and Small Pharma.
Any inability of management to successfully integrate the operations could have a Material Adverse Effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations of Post-Arrangement Cybin.
Additionally, Post-Arrangement Cybin will face the same risks that each of Cybin and Small Pharma currently face, in addition to other risks.
Adverse effects on Cybin Shares
On completion of the Arrangement, a significant number of additional Cybin Shares will be issued and available for trading in the public market. The increase in the number of Cybin Shares may lead to sales of such shares or the perception that such sales may occur (commonly referred to as “market overhang”), either of which may adversely affect the market for, and the market price of, the Cybin Shares.
60


Dilution
As a result of the issuance of Cybin Shares in connection with the Arrangement, the ownership and voting interests of Cybin Shareholders in Cybin will be diluted, relative to current proportional ownership and voting interests.
Pro forma financial statements may not be indicative of the financial condition or results of operations of Post-Arrangement Cybin
The unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements contained in this Circular are presented for illustrative purposes only as of their respective dates and may not be an indication of the financial condition or results of operations of Post-Arrangement Cybin for several reasons. For example, the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial statements have been derived from the respective historical financial statements of Cybin and Small Pharma, and certain adjustments and assumptions made as of the dates indicated therein may not be relevant in regards to Cybin following the Arrangement and other adjustments and assumptions have been made to give effect to the Arrangement and the other respective relevant transactions which may not, with the passage of time, turn out to be relevant or correct. The information upon which these adjustments and assumptions have been made is preliminary, and adjustments and assumptions of this nature require the exercise of judgement and are difficult to make with complete accuracy. See “Management Information CircularForward-Looking Statements.
Outbreaks of communicable diseases
Emerging infectious diseases or the threat of outbreaks of contagious diseases, including the COVID-19 outbreak, could lead to disruptions in many aspects of Post-Arrangement Cybin’s business operations (including as a result of government regulation and prevention measures), labour shortages and shutdowns, social unrest, breach of material contracts, increased insurance premiums, delays in permitting or approvals, governmental disruptions, capital markets volatility, and other unknown but potentially significant impacts, all of which could result in the closure of research facilities, warehouses, and supply chains upon which Post-Arrangement Cybin relies.
Post-Arrangement Cybin’s business could be adversely impacted by the effects of a health epidemic or other outbreaks of communicable disease. In particular, such an event could materially and adversely impact Cybin’s business including without limitation, employee health, workforce productivity, increased insurance premiums, limitations on travel, the availability of industry experts and personnel, restrictions to research programs and other factors that will depend on future developments beyond Cybin’s control, which could have a material and adverse effect on its business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the inability of Governmental Authorities to control the spread and impact of a pandemic could adversely affect global economies and financial markets resulting in an economic downturn that could have an adverse effect on Post-Arrangement Cybin’s future prospects.
Information Concerning Cybin
Cybin is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company on a mission to create safe and effective psychedelic-based therapeutics to address the large unmet need for new and innovative treatment options for people who suffer from mental health conditions. See Schedule C for additional information regarding Cybin.
Information Concerning Small Pharma
Small Pharma is a biotechnology company progressing a pipeline of short-duration psychedelic-assisted therapies for the treatment of mental health conditions. See Schedule D for additional information regarding Small Pharma.
Information Concerning Post-Arrangement Cybin
As a result of the Arrangement, Small Pharma will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cybin. For further information concerning the business and operations of Post-Arrangement Cybin, see Schedule E. See Schedule F for selected pro forma financial information for Post-Arrangement Cybin as at and for the three months ended June 30, 2023, and for the year ended March 31, 2023.
61


Material Changes
Except as disclosed in this Circular, Cybin is not aware of any plans or proposals for material changes in the business or affairs of Cybin, or the affairs of Small Pharma which may have a significant effect on the financial performance and financial position of Cybin, Small Pharma, or Post-Arrangement Cybin.
OTHER MATTERS TO BE ACTED UPON
To the knowledge of the Cybin Board, the only other matters to be brought before the Meeting, in addition to the Acquisition Resolution, are those matters set forth in the Notice of Meeting, as set forth below in more detail.
Financial Statements
Cybin’s audited consolidated financial statements as at and for the years ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, and the report of the auditors on such financial statements, will be placed before the Meeting, and will be open to inspection. Such financial statements are also available on SEDAR+ under Cybin’s profile at www.sedarplus.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. No formal action will, or is required to, be taken in respect of Cybin’s audited consolidated financial statements at the Meeting.
Appointment and Remuneration of Auditors
Management proposes to nominate Zeifmans LLP, which firm has been auditor of Cybin since November 2020, as auditor of Cybin, to hold office until the close of the next annual meeting of Cybin Shareholders.
Recommendation: Management of Cybin recommends that Cybin Shareholders VOTE FOR the appointment of Zeifmans LLP as Cybin’s auditors and authorizing the directors to fix their remuneration.
Proxies: Unless otherwise instructed, proxies in favour of the management designees will be VOTED FOR the appointment of Zeifmans LLP as Cybin’s auditors and authorizing the directors to fix their remuneration.
Election of Directors
The Cybin Board presently consists of six directors. At the Meeting, the Cybin Shareholders will be asked to elect the six nominees set forth below, namely, Theresa Firestone, Grant Froese, Paul Glavine, Eric Hoskins, Mark Lawson and Eric So (collectively, the “Board Nominees” and each a “Board Nominee”) as directors of Cybin. Each Board Nominee elected will hold office until the next annual meeting of shareholders or until his or her successor is duly elected or appointed pursuant to the by-laws of Cybin. The enclosed form of proxy permits Cybin Shareholders to vote for all the Board Nominees together or for each Board Nominee on an individual basis.
Cybin Shares represented by proxies in favour of management will be VOTED FOR each of the Board Nominees, unless the Cybin Shareholder who has given such proxy has directed that the Cybin Shares are to be withheld from voting in respect of any particular Board Nominee or Board Nominees.
Management does not contemplate that any of the Board Nominees will be unable to serve as directors. However, if for any reason, any of the Board Nominees do not stand for election or are determined to be ineligible to serve as a director of Cybin, the persons named in the form of proxy reserve the right to vote for other nominee(s) that may be proposed for election at the Meeting at their discretion.
Majority Voting Policy
Cybin Shareholders will vote for the election of each individual proposed director nominee separately. Cybin has adopted a majority voting policy for the election of directors whereby any nominee director (in an uncontested election) who receives more “withheld” votes than “for” votes at any meeting where Cybin Shareholders vote on the election, the director will be expected to submit to the Cybin Board his or her resignation, to take effect upon acceptance by the Cybin Board. The Cybin Board will then have 90 days to accept the resignation, during which time an alternate Cybin Board member may be appointed. The Cybin Board shall be expected to accept the resignation absent exceptional circumstances that would
62


warrant the applicable director to continue to serve on the Cybin Board. In determining whether to accept the resignation, the Cybin Board will consider various matters including the results of the vote of Cybin Shareholders, the contribution of the director to the Cybin Board and committee discussions, the expressed reasons (if any) for which the withheld votes have been given, the merits of such reasons, and the ability to address the underlying concerns. The Cybin Board will promptly disclose the results of the vote director by director and will promptly issue a news release disclosing the Board’s decision. If the Cybin Board determines not to accept a resignation, the news release shall fully state the reasons for that decision.
The director under consideration will not participate in any Cybin Board or committee deliberations relating to his or her potential resignation. Subject to any corporate law restrictions, the Cybin Board may (i) leave a resultant vacancy unfilled until the next annual meeting of Cybin Shareholders; (ii) fill the vacancy through the appointment of a new director whom the Cybin Board considers to merit the confidence of Cybin Shareholders; or (iii) call a special meeting of Cybin Shareholders at which there will be presented individuals to fill the vacant position or positions.
Advance Notice Requirement
Cybin’s By-Law No. 1, contains a requirement providing for advance notice of nominations of directors in certain circumstances where nominations for election to the Board are made by Cybin Shareholders. For an annual meeting of Cybin Shareholders, notice to Cybin must be provided not less than 30 and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; save and except where the annual meeting is to be held on a date less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of such annual meeting was made, in which event notice may be given not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement. For a special meeting of Cybin Shareholders (that is not also an annual meeting), notice to Cybin must be given not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of such special meeting was made. Cybin’s By-Law No. 1 is available under Cybin’s profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.com.
The following tables set out certain information as of the date of this Circular (unless otherwise indicated) with respect to the persons being nominated at the Meeting for election as directors. Information regarding Cybin Shares owned by each director of Cybin is presented to the best knowledge of management of Cybin and has been furnished to management of Cybin by such directors.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Compensation Discussion and Analysis
The general objectives of Cybin’s compensation strategy are to: (a) compensate management in a manner that encourages and rewards a high level of performance and outstanding results with a view to increasing long-term shareholder value; (b) align management’s interests with the long-term interests of shareholders; and (c) attract and retain highly qualified executive officers.
Management Contracts
The following is a description of the management contracts for the Named Executive Officers (as defined below):
Doug Drysdale
Doug Drysdale currently receives a base salary of US$500,000 per annum for his services as Chief Executive Officer of Cybin. He has entered into an employment agreement (the “CEO Employment Agreement”) with Cybin which is for an indefinite term and includes provisions relating to, among other things, base salary, eligibility for benefits, an annual performance bonus and equity awards. As per the CEO Employment Agreement, Mr. Drysdale is eligible to be considered for an annual performance bonus, currently for up to 65% of Mr. Drysdale’s base salary and shall be based on criteria established by the Cybin Board and the Compensation Committee.
In the event that the CEO Employment Agreement is terminated without cause, Cybin will pay to Mr. Drysdale a cash severance payment equal to six (6) months base salary. Mr. Drysdale may terminate the CEO Employment Agreement by providing 30 days’ written notice to Cybin. Assuming termination without cause occurred on the date of this Circular, the estimated severance payment to Mr. Drysdale would have been approximately US$250,000.
Greg Cavers, Eric So, Paul Glavine, and Aaron Bartlone
The following Named Executive Officers, serving in the following capacities, currently receive the following annual salaries:
·    Greg Cavers currently receives $250,000 per annum for his services as Chief Financial Officer of Cybin;
·    Eric So currently receives $480,000 per annum for his services as President of Cybin;
·    Paul Glavine currently receives $480,000 per annum for his services as Chief Growth Officer of Cybin; and
67


·    Aaron Bartlone currently receives US$300,000 per annum for his services as Chief Operating Officer of a subsidiary of Cybin.
Each of such Named Executive Officers has entered into an agreement with Cybin, which is for an indefinite term and includes standard provisions relating to, among other things, base salary, eligibility for employee benefits, equity awards and confidentiality and intellectual property rights.
Mr. Cavers’ employment agreement provides that Cybin may terminate his employment without cause provided, however, that if Cybin terminates his employment without cause, Cybin will provide Mr. Cavers with three months’ notice of termination (or pay in lieu), plus an additional one months’ notice (or pay in lieu) for each year of completed service with Cybin. Assuming termination without cause occurred on the date of this Circular, the estimated severance payment to Mr. Cavers would have been approximately $125,000.
Mr. So and Mr. Glavine’s consulting agreements provide that their respective agreements may be terminated on 24 months’ notice and upon payment of all accrued fees and other fees that would be due during such 24 month period. The agreements do not contain severance or change of control provisions.
Mr. Bartlone’s agreement provides that Cybin may terminate his employment without cause provided, however, that if Cybin terminates his employment without cause, Cybin will provide Mr. Bartlone with eight months’ notice of termination (or pay in lieu), plus an additional one months’ notice (or pay in lieu) for each year of completed service with Cybin, up to a maximum of 12 months. Assuming termination without cause occurred on the date of this Circular, the estimated severance payment to Mr. Bartlone would have been approximately US$250,000.
Elements of Compensation
The compensation of Named Executive Officers is comprised of the following elements: (a) base salary; and (b) long-term equity incentives, consisting of Awards granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan. These principal elements of compensation are described in further detail below.
Base Salary
Each Named Executive Officer receives a base salary, which constitutes a significant portion of the Named Executive Officer’s compensation package. Base salary is provided in recognition for discharging day-to-day duties and responsibilities and reflects the Named Executive Officer’s performance over time, as well as that individual’s particular experience and qualifications. A Named Executive Officer’s base salary is reviewed by the Cybin Board or the Compensation Committee on an annual basis and may be adjusted to take into account performance contributions for the year and to reflect sustained performance contributions over a number of years. At the discretion of the Cybin Board or the Compensation Committee, each of the Named Executive Officers is eligible to receive performance bonuses, which are contingent on the Named Executive Officer achieving certain performance objectives set annually by the Compensation Committee.
Cybin Equity Incentive Plan
On August 13, 2020, Cybin received Cybin Shareholder approval of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan and on November 5, 2020, it was adopted by the Cybin Board. On August 16, 2021, certain amendments to the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan were approved to better align the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan with policies of the Cboe Canada. The Cybin Equity Incentive Plan permits the granting of Cybin Options, stock appreciation rights (“Cybin SARs”), restricted share unit awards (“Cybin RSUs”), performance share units (“Cybin Performance Awards”), dividend equivalents (“Cybin Dividend Equivalents”) and other share-based awards (“Cybin Share Based Awards” and collectively with Cybin Options, Cybin SARs, Cybin RSUs, Cybin Performance Awards and Cybin Dividend Equivalents, the “Awards”). Awards are granted by either the Cybin Board or the Compensation Committee.
The Cybin Equity Incentive Plan is intended to promote the interests of Cybin and its shareholders by aiding Cybin in attracting and retaining employees, officers, consultants, advisors and non-employee directors capable of assuring the future success of Cybin, to offer such persons incentives to put forth maximum efforts for the success of Cybin’s business and to
68


compensate such persons through various share and cash based arrangements and provide them with opportunities for share ownership in Cybin, thereby aligning the interests of such persons with the Cybin Shareholders.
Shares Subject to the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan
The Cybin Equity Incentive Plan is a rolling plan which, subject to the adjustment provisions provided for therein (including a subdivision or consolidation of the Cybin Shares), provides that the aggregate maximum number of Cybin Shares that may be issued under all Awards under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan shall not exceed 20% of Cybin’s issued and outstanding Cybin Shares from time to time, such number being 46,936,646 as at the date of this Circular. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the aggregate number of Cybin Shares that may be issued pursuant to awards of Cybin Options shall not exceed 22,266,002.
The Cybin Equity Incentive Plan is considered an “evergreen” plan, since the Cybin Shares covered by Awards which have been exercised, settled or terminated shall be available for subsequent grants under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan and the number of Awards available to grant increases as the number of issued and outstanding Cybin Shares increases.
As at the date of this Circular, a total of 40,676,675 Cybin Shares are issuable pursuant to Cybin Options granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, representing approximately 17.3% of Cybin’s issued and outstanding Cybin Shares. An aggregate of 6,259,971 Cybin Shares (plus any Awards forfeited or cancelled) are available for issuance under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, representing approximately 2.7% of Cybin’s issued and outstanding Cybin Shares as at the date of this Circular. As of the date of this Circular, a total of 12,835,400 Cybin Shares are issuable pursuant to Cybin Incentive Stock Options (as such term is defined in the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan) granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan.
Eligibility
Any of Cybin’s employees, officers, consultants, advisors and non-employee directors or any affiliate or person to whom an offer of employment or engagement with Cybin is extended, are eligible to participate in the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan (the “Participants”). The basis of participation of an individual under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, and the type and amount of any Award that an individual will be entitled to receive under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, will be determined by the Compensation Committee based on its judgment as to the best interests of Cybin and Cybin Shareholders, and therefore cannot be determined in advance.
If a Participant ceases to be an Eligible Person (as such term is defined in the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan) Cybin for any reason, whether for cause or otherwise, the Participant may, within 90 days following the date on which it ceased to be an Eligible Person, an investor relations person or holder of Cybin Options, exercise any Cybin Option that was exercisable on the date the Participant ceased to be an Eligible Person. The Compensation Committee may extend such 90 day period subject to obtaining any approval required by the Cboe Canada and subject to a maximum extension to the original expiry date of such Cybin Options. Any Cybin Option that was not exercisable on the date the Participant ceased to be an Eligible Person will be deemed to expire on such date, unless extended pursuant to the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan. Any Cybin Option that was exercisable on the date the Participant ceased to be an Eligible Person will be deemed to expire immediately following the 90 day period unless extended pursuant to the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan.
Administration of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan
The Cybin Equity Incentive Plan shall be administered by the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee shall have full power and authority to designate a Participant, the time or times at which awards may be granted, the conditions under which awards may be granted or forfeited to Cybin, the number of Cybin Shares to be covered by any Award, the exercise price of any Award, whether restrictions or limitations are to be imposed on the Cybin Shares issuable pursuant to grants of any Award, and the nature of any such restrictions or limitations, any acceleration of exercisability or vesting, or waiver of termination regarding any award, based on such factors as the Compensation Committee may determine.
In addition, the Compensation Committee interprets the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan and may adopt guidelines and other rules and regulations relating to the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, and make all other determinations and take all other actions necessary or advisable for the implementation and administration of the Equity Incentive Plan.
69


Types of Awards
Cybin Options
Under the terms of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, unless the Compensation Committee determines otherwise in the case of an Cybin Option substituted for another Cybin Option in connection with a corporate transaction, the exercise price of the Cybin Options may not be lower than the greater of the closing market price of the Cybin Shares on the Cboe Canada on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Cybin Options and (b) the date of grant of the Cybin Options. Cybin Options granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan will be subject to such terms, including the exercise price and the conditions and timing of exercise, as may be determined by the Compensation Committee and specified in the applicable award agreement. The maximum term of a Cybin Option granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan will be ten years from the date of grant. Payment in respect of the exercise of a Cybin Option may not be made, in whole or in part, with a promissory note.
Unless otherwise specified by the Compensation Committee the time of granting an Cybin Option and set forth in the particular Award Agreement (as such term is defined in the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan), an exercise notice must be accompanied by payment of the exercise price. A participant may, in lieu of exercising an Cybin Option pursuant to an exercise notice, elect to surrender such Cybin Option to Cybin (a “Cashless Exercise”) in consideration for an amount from Cybin equal to (i) the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Equity Incentive Plan) of the Cybin Shares issuable on the exercise of such Cybin Option (or portion thereof) as of the date such Cybin Option (or portion thereof) is exercised, less (ii) the aggregate exercise price of the Cybin Option (or portion thereof) surrendered relating to such Cybin Shares (the “In-the-Money Amount”) by written notice to Cybin indicating the number of Cybin Options such participant wishes to exercise using the Cashless Exercise, and such other information that Cybin may require. Subject to the provisions of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, Cybin will satisfy payment of the In-the-Money Amount by delivering to the participant such number of Cybin Shares having a fair market value equal to the In-the-Money Amount.
Cybin RSUs
Awards of Cybin RSUs shall be subject to such restrictions as the Compensation Committee may impose (including, without limitation, any limitation on the right to vote or the right to receive any dividend or other right or property with respect thereto), which restrictions may lapse separately or in combination at such time or times, in such installments or otherwise as the Compensation Committee may deem appropriate. Upon a Participant’s termination of employment or service or resignation or removal as a director (in either case, as determined under criteria established by the Compensation Committee) during the applicable restriction period, all Cybin RSUs held by such Participant at such time shall be forfeited and reacquired by Cybin for cancellation at no cost to Cybin; provided, however, that the Compensation Committee may waive in whole or in part any or all remaining restrictions with respect to Cybin RSUs. Pursuant to the policies of the Cboe Canada, the value ascribed to the Cybin Shares covered by the Cybin RSU may not be lower than the greater of the closing market price of the Cybin Shares on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Cybin RSU, and (b) the date of grant of the Cybin RSU. Any Cybin RSU granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan shall be issued at the time such Awards are granted and may be evidenced in such manner as the Compensation Committee may deem appropriate.
Stock Appreciation Rights
A Cybin SAR granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan shall confer on the Participant a right to receive upon exercise, the excess of (i) the Fair Market Value (as such term is defined in the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan) of one (1) Cybin Share on the date of exercise over (ii) the grant price of the Cybin SAR as specified by the Compensation Committee (which price shall not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value of one (1) Cybin Share on the date of grant of the Cybin SAR); provided, however, that, subject to applicable law and stock exchange rules, the Compensation Committee may designate a grant price below Fair Market Value on the date of grant if the Cybin SAR is granted in substitution for a stock appreciation right previously granted by an entity that is acquired by or merged with Cybin or an Affiliate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to the rules of the Cboe Canada, Cybin Shares issued in connection with SARs may not be priced lower than the greater of the closing market prices of the Cybin Shares on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Cybin SAR, and (b) the date of grant of the Cybin SAR. Subject to the terms of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, the policies of the Cboe Canada and any applicable Award Agreement, the grant price, term, methods of exercise, dates of exercise, methods of settlement, equity compensation and any other terms and conditions of any Cybin SAR shall be as determined by the
70


Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee may impose such conditions or restrictions on the exercise of any Cybin SAR as it may deem appropriate. No Cybin SAR may be exercised more than ten years from the grant date.
Performance Share Units
A Cybin Performance Award granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan (i) may be denominated or payable in cash, Cybin Shares (including without limitation, Cybin RSUs), other securities, other Awards or other property and (ii) shall confer on the holder thereof the right to receive payments, in whole or in part, upon the achievement of one or more objective performance goals during such performance periods as the Compensation Committee shall establish. Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to the rules of the Cboe Canada, Cybin Performance Awards may not be priced lower than the greater of the closing market prices of the Cybin Shares on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Cybin Performance Award, and (b) the date of grant of the Cybin Performance Award. Subject to the terms of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan and the policies of the Cboe Canada, the performance goals to be achieved during any performance period, the length of any performance period, the amount of any Cybin Performance Award granted, the amount of any payment or transfer to be made pursuant to any Cybin Performance Award and any other terms and conditions of any Cybin Performance Award shall be determined by the Compensation Committee.
Dividend Equivalents
A Cybin Dividend Equivalent granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan allows Participants to receive payments (in cash, Cybin Shares, other securities, other Awards or other property as determined in the discretion of the Compensation Committee) equivalent to the amount of cash dividends paid by Cybin to holders of Cybin Shares with respect to a number of Cybin Shares as determined by the Compensation Committee. Subject to the terms of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, the policies of the Cboe Canada and any applicable Award Agreement, such Dividend Equivalents may have such terms and conditions as the Compensation Committee shall determine. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) the Compensation Committee may not grant Cybin Dividend Equivalents to Eligible Persons in connection with grants of Cybin Options, Cybin SARs or other Awards the value of which is based solely on an increase in the value of the Cybin Shares after the date of grant of such Award, and (ii) dividend and Cybin Dividend Equivalent amounts may be accrued but shall not be paid unless and until the date on which all conditions or restrictions relating to such Award have been satisfied, waived or lapsed. Subject to the terms of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan, the policies of the Cboe Canada and any applicable Award Agreement, such Cybin Dividend Equivalents may have such terms and conditions as the Compensation Committee shall determine, provided that pursuant to the rules of the Cboe Canada, Dividend Equivalents may not be priced lower than the greater of the closing market prices of the Cybin Shares on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Cybin Dividend Equivalent, and (b) the date of grant of the Cybin Dividend Equivalent.
Other Share-Based Awards
In addition, Awards may be granted under the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan that are denominated or payable in, valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on or related to, Cybin Shares (including, without limitation, securities convertible into Cybin Shares), as are deemed by the Compensation Committee to be consistent with the purpose of the Equity Incentive Plan in accordance with applicable regulations, provided that pursuant to the rules of the Cboe Canada, such Awards may not be priced lower than the greater of the closing market prices of the Cybin Shares on (a) the trading day prior to the date of grant of the Award, and (b) the date of grant of the Award.
Term
While the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan does not stipulate a specific term for Awards granted thereunder, Awards may not expire beyond 10 years from its date of grant, except where Cybin Shareholder approval is received or where an expiry date would have fallen within a blackout period of Cybin. All Awards must vest and settle in accordance with the provisions of the Cybin Equity Incentive Plan and any applicable award agreement, which award agreement may include an expiry date for a specific award.
In the event an Award expires, at a time when a scheduled blackout is in place or an undisclosed material change or material fact in the affairs of Cybin exists, the expiry of such Award will be the date that is ten Business Days after which such scheduled blackout terminates or there is no longer such undisclosed material change or material fact.
71


Non-Transferability of Awards
No Award and no right under any such Award shall be transferable by a Participant other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, and no Award (other than fully vested and unrestricted Cybin Shares issued pursuant to any Award) or right under any such Award may be pledged, alienated, attached or otherwise encumbered, and any purported pledge, alienation, attachment or encumbrance thereof shall be void and unenforceable against Cybin or any Affiliate. The Compensation Committee may also establish procedures as it deems appropriate for a Participant to designate a person or persons, as beneficiary or beneficiaries, to exercise the rights of the Participant and receive any property distributable with respect to any Award in the event of the Participant’s death. In the event of a Participant’s death, any unexercised, options issued to such Participant shall be exercisable within a period of one (1) year next succeeding the year in which the Participant died, unless such exercise period is extended by the Compensation Committee and approval is obtained from the stock exchange on which the Cybin Shares then trade, as applicable.
Compensation of Directors
Independent members of the Cybin Board are paid $50,000 annually, which amount is paid quarterly. In addition, the independent lead director receives an additional annual cash fee of $15,000. Directors of Cybin are also compensated for their services through the granting of Cybin Options and other Awards, and may also be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses incurred in carrying out their duties as directors.
Officers of Cybin who also act as directors will not receive any additional compensation for services rendered in such capacity, other than as paid by Cybin in their capacity as officers.
Compensation Risk
The Cybin Board and, as applicable, the Compensation Committee, considers and assesses the implications of risks associated with Cybin’s compensation policies and practices and devotes such time and resources as is believed to be necessary in the circumstances. Cybin’s practice of compensating its officers primarily through a mix of salary, bonus and stock options is designed to mitigate risk by: (i) ensuring that Cybin retains such officers; and (ii) aligning the interests of its officers with the short-term and long-term objectives of Cybin and its shareholders. As at the date of this Circular, the Cybin Board had not identified risks arising from Cybin’s compensation policies and practices that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on Cybin.
Financial Instruments
Pursuant to the terms of Cybin’s Insider Trading Policy, Cybin’s officers and directors are prohibited from purchasing financial instruments, such as prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars or units of exchange funds, that are designed to hedge or offset a decrease in market value of equity securities granted as compensation or held, directly or indirectly, by an officer or director.
Compensation Governance
In order to assist the Cybin Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to compensation matters, the Board has established the Compensation Committee and has reviewed and approved the Compensation Committee’s Charter. The Compensation Committee is composed of Eric So, Mark Lawson and Grant Froese. Mr. So is not considered “independent”, as such term is defined in NI 58-101.
The Compensation Committee meets on compensation matters as and when required with respect to executive compensation. The primary goal of the Compensation Committee as it relates to compensation matters is to ensure that the compensation provided to the Named Executive Officers and Cybin’s other executive officers is determined with regard to Cybin’s business strategies and objectives, such that the financial interest of the executive officers is aligned with the financial interest of shareholders, and to ensure that their compensation is fair and reasonable and sufficient to attract and retain qualified and experienced executives. The Compensation Committee is given the authority to engage and compensate any outside advisor that it determines to be necessary to carry out its duties.
72


As a whole, the members of the Compensation Committee have direct experience and skills relevant to their responsibilities in executive compensation, including with respect to enabling the Compensation Committee in making informed decisions on the suitability of Cybin’s compensation policies and practices. All three members have experience on the board of directors and related committees of other public companies, as described under “Other Matters to be Acted UponElection of Directors” in this Circular.
Compensation Governance
The Cybin Board has adopted a Clawback Policy, which provides that the Cybin Board may seek recovery of erroneously awarded Awards received by certain executive officers on a full or partial basis in situations where Cybin is required to prepare an accounting restatement of its financial statements due to Cybin’s material non-compliance with any financial reporting requirements under applicable Securities Laws.
Performance Graph
The following graph compares the percentage change in the cumulative Cybin Shareholder return on the Cybin Shares compared to the cumulative total return of the S&P/TSX Composite Index for the period commencing on December 31, 2018 to March 31, 2023 based on the price of the Cybin Shares, assuming a $100 investment on December 31, 2018 and reinvestment of dividends. From December 31, 2018 to June 29, 2020 (the date the Cybin Shares were halted in connection with the announcement of the RTO Transaction), the performance reflected is that of Clarmin Explorations Inc., Cybin’s predecessor business, and is not reflective of Cybin’s business or performance since the completion of the RTO Transaction on November 5, 2020 and the listing of its Cybin Shares on the Cboe Canada on November 10, 2020.
image_7.jpg
Cybin’s total shareholder return for the period from the completion of the RTO Transaction to March 31, 2023 was -44%. Between 2020 and 2023, Cybin completed a series of financings that provided it with a net cash position as at March 31, 2023 of $16.6 million. The Cybin Board has not, as of the date of the Circular, determined any incentive payments based on Cybin’s results for 2023, including its total shareholders’ return, but it is anticipated that as part of the compensation and governance review, the Cybin Board will consider and approve incentive payments that take into account these factors. As the completion of the RTO Transaction marked the beginning of the current business of Cybin, Cybin considers its share performance since completion of the RTO Transaction to be pertinent to its Cybin Shareholders. Therefore, the next graph compares the percentage change in the cumulative Shareholder return on the Cybin Shares commencing with the listing of the Cybin Shares on the Cboe Canada on November 10, 2020 to March 31, 2023, compared to the cumulative total return of the S&P/TSX Composite Index for the same period, assuming a $100 investment on November 10, 2020 and reinvestment of dividends.

Any such certificate formerly representing Target Shares not duly surrendered on or before the sixth (6th) anniversary of the Effective Date shall cease to represent a claim by or interest of any former holder of Target Shares of any kind or nature against or in the Target or the Buyer.

(f)    No holder of Target Shares or In-the-Money Target Options shall be entitled to receive any Share Consideration with respect to Target Shares other than the Share Consideration which such holder is entitled to receive in accordance with Section 3.01(d) and this Section 5.01 and, for greater certainty, no such holder will be entitled to receive any interest, dividends, premium or other payment in connection therewith other than, in respect of Target Shares, any declared but unpaid dividends with a record date prior to the Effective Date. No dividend or other distribution declared or made after the Effective Time with respect to any securities of the Target with a record date on or after the Effective Date shall be delivered to the holder of any unsurrendered certificate which, immediately prior to the Effective Date, represented outstanding Target Shares that were transferred pursuant to Section 3.01.

When authorizing such issuance of Share Consideration in exchange for any lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, the person to whom such Share Consideration is to be delivered shall, as a condition precedent to the delivery of such Share Consideration, give a bond satisfactory to the Buyer and the Depositary (each acting reasonably) in such sum as the Buyer may direct (acting reasonably), or otherwise indemnify the Buyer and the Target in a manner satisfactory to the Buyer, acting reasonably, against any claim that may be made against the Buyer and the Target with respect to the certificate alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

Each of the Buyer, the Target or the Depositary that delivers Share Consideration to any Former Target Shareholder under this Plan of Arrangement shall be authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such portion of Buyer Shares otherwise issuable to such Former Target Shareholder (if any) as is necessary to provide sufficient funds to enable it to comply with its deducting or withholding requirements and such Party shall notify the applicable Target Shareholder and remit any unapplied balance of the net proceeds of such sale to such Former Target Shareholder (after deduction for (x) the amounts required to satisfy the required withholding under the Plan of Arrangement in respect of such person, (y) reasonable commissions payable to the broker effecting the sale of Buyer Shares on the instruction of the Buyer, the Target or the Depositary, and (z) other reasonable costs and expenses). None of the Buyer, the Target or the Depositary will be liable for any loss arising out of any sale of such Buyer Shares, including any loss relating to the manner or timing of such sales, the prices at which the Buyer Shares are sold or otherwise.
Section 5.04    Limitation and Proscription
To the extent that a Former Target Shareholder shall not have complied with the provisions of Section 5.01 or Section 5.02 on or before the date that is six years after the Effective Date (the “final proscription date”), then the Share Consideration that such Former Target Shareholder was entitled to receive shall be automatically cancelled without any repayment of capital in respect thereof and the interest of the Former Target Shareholder in such Share Consideration to which it was entitled shall be terminated as of such final proscription date.
