Cybeats Responds to OTC Markets Request on Recent Promotional Activity

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 19, 2024) – Cybeats Technologies Corp. (CSE: CYBT) (OTCQB: CYBCF) (“Cybeats” or the “Company”) announces that it has been requested by OTC Markets Group Inc. (“OTC Markets“) to issue this statement about promotional activity concerning its common shares (the “Common Shares“) traded on the OTCQB market (operated by OTC Markets).

On Tuesday, April 16, 2024, OTC Markets informed the Company that it became aware of certain promotional activities concerning the Company and its Common Shares traded on the OTCQX Marketplace, including the distribution of promotional newsletter e-mails published by Spartan Trading Inc. discussing the Company, its business, and the global cybersecurity market generally.

On April 2, 2024, the Company entered into a digital marketing and consulting services agreement with Spark Newswire Inc. (“Spark“), an arm’s length party to the Company, whereby Spark, along with its affiliates, would provide investor relations and advertising services to the Company. In addition, on April 2, 2024, the Company entered into an investor relations agreement with Outside The Box Capital Inc. (“Outside The Box” and together with Spark, the “Service Provider“), an arm’s length party to the Company whereby Outside The Box would provide investor relations services to the Company. The nature of the relationship between the Company and each of Spark and Outside the Box, as well as the compensation to be paid to each of Spark and Outside the Box were publicly disclosed in the Company’s news release dated April 12, 2024, which can be found under the Company’s profile on SEDAR+.

The Company provided the Service Providers with publicly available sources of information for the newsletter, and the only editorial control the Company exercised over the materials involved reviewing the materials for accuracy prior to their dissemination. The Company does not believe the statements in the marketing materials and newsletter emails were materially false or misleading. After inquiry of management, other than as disclosed herein, no directors, control persons, officers or controlling shareholders have been involved with the creation, distribution or payment of promotional materials related to the Company and its securities.

The Company understands this promotional activity coincided with increased trading activity in the Common Shares beginning on April 15, 2024. The Company has no opinion as to whether or not and/or the extent to which the promotional activity affected trading activity because of the many factors that affect trading activity generally, which may include promotional activities as well as the volatile nature of the industry in which the Company is involved and the prior issuance of public news releases.

The Company has been advised by OTC Markets, that OTC Markets takes the position that the newsletter email profiling the Company contains promotional content and may encourage investors to purchase its shares. The Company wishes to caution readers that some of the content in the newsletter emails profiling the Company is speculative in nature. For more complete and specific information regarding the Company, its prospects and the risks associated with those prospects, readers should consult the Company’s public filings on SEDAR+, its website and other reliable sources. The Company encourages investors to contact their investment advisers prior to making any investment.

Over the preceding 12 months, in addition to the above disclosed engagements with Spark and Outside the Box, the Company has also worked with the following third party service providers: BullVestor MedienGmBH, Gold Standard LLC, Haywood Securities Inc., North Equities Corp., all of which have provided consulting or digital marketing services, including content creation, distribution and market awareness campaigns.

Other than as previously disclosed by the Company in it’s press release of March 8, 2024 and April 12, 2024, to the best of the Company’s knowledge after due inquiry, no other officers, directors or controlling shareholders of the Company, nor any third party service providers, have purchased or sold securities of the Company within the past 90 days. Investors are reminded that the Company’s officers and directors file insider reports under Canadian securities laws disclosing any transactions in the Company’s Common Shares, and that these reports can be viewed on the SEDI website.

Other than as previously disclosed in the Company’s public filings, the Company has not issued Common Shares or convertible instruments allowing conversion to equity securities at prices constituting a discount to the current market rate at the time of the issuance.

Further information about the Company and its previous financings and filings can be found on the company’s SEDAR+ profile.
