VANCOUVER, BC – August 10, 2020 – Replicel Life Sciences Inc. (the "Company" or "Replicel") announces that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) has granted a thirty (30) day extension to the Company for completion of its non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”), previously announced in its News Release of June 19, 2020.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). One Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $0.36 per Share for a period of three years from closing of the Offering, subject to an acceleration provision such that in the event that the Shares have a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) of greater than $0.45 per Share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days at any time after four months and one day from the closing of the Offering, RepliCel may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and, in such case, the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given to the holder. Insiders may participate in the Offering. On July 15, 2020, the Company closed a first tranche of the Offering pursuant to which it sold an aggregate of 3,649,110 Units for gross proceeds of $656,839.80.
Finder’s fees or brokers’ commissions may be paid in accordance with Exchange policies.
All securities will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date. The Offering is subject to Exchange approval.
The aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the Offering will be used for general working capital.
None of the securities sold in connection with the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
About RepliCel Life Sciences
RepliCel is a regenerative medicine company focused on developing cell therapies for aesthetic and orthopedic conditions affecting what the Company believes is approximately one in three people in industrialized nations, including aging/sun‐damaged skin, pattern baldness, and chronic tendon degeneration. These conditions, often associated with aging, are caused by a deficit of healthy cells required for normal tissue healing and function. These cell therapy product candidates are based on RepliCel’s innovative technology, utilizing cell populations isolated from a patient’s healthy hair follicles.
The Company’s product pipeline is comprised of RCT-‐01 for tendon repair, RCS-‐01 for skin rejuvenation, and RCH-‐01 for hair restoration. RCH-‐01 is exclusively licensed in Asia to Shiseido Company and Shiseido is currently testing the product in Japan. RepliCel maintains the rights to RCH-‐01 for the rest of the world. RCT-‐01 and RCS-‐01 are exclusively licensed in Greater China to YOFOTO (China) Health Company. RepliCel and YOFOTO are currently co‐developing these products in China. RepliCel maintains the rights to these products outside of Greater China.
RepliCel has also developed a proprietary injection device, RCI-‐02, and related consumables, which is expected to improve the administration of its cell therapy products and certain other injectables. YOFOTO has exclusively licensed the commercial rights for the RCI-‐02 device and consumables in Greater China for dermatology applications and is expected to first launch the product in Hong Kong upon it being CE marked.
