Kelowna, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 17, 2024) - Tryp Therapeutics, Inc. (CSE: TRYP) ("Tryp" or the "Company") announces, that it has filed amended financial statements for the six months ended February 29, 2024 (the "Financial Statements"), along with the corresponding Management Discussion & Analysis (the "MD&A"). The amendments to the financial statements resulted from a review of the financial statements conducted in May 2024 by the Company's auditors.

Amendments to the Financial Statements are summarized in the following table:

  1. The share based compensation expense change primarily related to a changing the stock option valuation model to a Monte Carlo simulation model that better reflects vesting terms based on the probabiliies of completing a minimum financing amount and of achieving multiple share price appreciation thresholds.
  2. The convertible debenture liability and related expenses were overstated, which resulted in the amendment to reduce the liability and expense by $189,845.
  3. Additional accrued expenses resulted from an increase in the estimated FY2023 audit fees and the Q2 review fees not previously anticipated ($28,592) and the correction for three vendor invoices previously omitted.

The notes to the Financial Statements and the MD&A have been updated to reflect the amendments noted above. The Company's accounting and internal review processes will be modified to improve future financial reporting.
