San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - June 1, 2021) - Tryp Therapeutics (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF) (FSE: 8FW) ("Tryp"), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing compounds for diseases with unmet medical needs through accelerated regulatory pathways, announced today that it is presenting at the "Psychedelics in Psychiatry and Beyond" conference sponsored by H.C. Wainwright & Co. The conference will be held virtually on June 17, 2021.

Time: Tryp's presentation will be available to access beginning at 7:00 a.m. EDT
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has adopted a new form of stock option plan (the "New Plan"). The Company's prior option plan (the "Prior Plan") was updated to align with certain U.S. regulatory requirements, including pursuant to the United States Internal Revenue Code. Certain directors and officers of the Company who were granted stock options under the Prior Plan have requested that those options be cancelled and re-issued under the New Plan and the Company, having received the prior approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"), has acquiesced to such request. Consequently, effective June 1, 2021, the Company has: (i) cancelled an aggregate of 6,000,000 options granted under the Prior Plan (the "Cancelled Options"); and (ii) granted an aggregate of 6,000,000 options under the New Plan (the "New Options"). The term and vesting periods of the New Options are identical to the term and vesting periods of the Cancelled Options. The exercise prices of the New Options have been set at the same exercise prices of the Cancelled Options, which are higher than the closing market price of the Company's common Shares on the CSE today such that there is no economic impact to the Company.
