Vancouver, British Columbia and San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - May 29, 2020) -  Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA) (OTCQX: PHVAF) ("Phivida" or the "Company") announces that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Company intends to rely on the temporary blanket relief (the "Relief") for market participants published by the Canadian Securities Administrators, which Relief provides reporting issuers with a 45-day extension for filings required on or before June 1, 2020.

Pursuant to the Relief, the Company intends to file the Interim Filings on or prior to the extended filing deadline of July 16, 2020.

Until the Interim Filings are filed, management and other insiders of the Company are subject to trading black-outs that reflect the principles in Section 9 of National Policy 11-207 - Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions. The Company confirms that, since the filing of its condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended December 31, 2019, there have been no material business developments.
