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. 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 currently being co-developed with, and under exclusive license by, Shiseido for certain Asian countries. All product candidates are based on RepliCel's innovative technology, utilizing cell populations isolated from a patient's healthy hair follicles. RepliCel has also developed a proprietary injection device, RCI-02, optimized for the administration of its products and licensable for use with other dermatology applications.

The project aims to employ microfluidic technology and advanced materials to develop an innovative platform for larger scale adherent cell culture in small volumetric footprints.

The project will be led by UVic's Dr. Mohsen Akbari, Assistant Professor at the University of Victoria and Director of the Laboratory for Innovations in Microengineering (LiME). Co-leading the project will be RepliCel's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Kevin McElwee who is also Professor of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK.

\"We are very pleased to have NSERC CRD support to work with Dr. Akbari and his team at UVic. He is one of the world's emerging experts on biomedical engineering and the employment of advanced materials and micro-technologies for cell and tissue culture. The collaboration represents a unique opportunity to leverage his expertise and non-dilutive grant funding to innovate around RepliCel's technologies in ways expected to improve the Company's eventual commercial-scale manufacturing,\" stated RepliCel President and CEO, R. Lee Buckler.

The two-year NSCERC CRD funding commitment and collaboration agreement with UVic may result in publications, patents, and/or the development of technologies with potential applications and value broader than RepliCel's immediate uses. New intellectual property arising from the project will be the sole and exclusive property of UVic with a fully paid, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to RepliCel for any commercial purposes. RepliCel has the option to negotiate an exclusive license to such intellectual property from UVic for commercial purposes important to the Company.

This update is intended to provide shareholders with a sense of what this strategic transaction means for RepliCel and an update on our next steps.

Firstly, let's recap the recent news:

For the past eleven months, we have been working toward securing and closing this partnership in Greater China. The valuation at which the upfront investment was made clearly indicates that YOFOTO believes they will help us create considerably more value in the company over the coming months.

YOFOTO has committed to spending a minimum of $7M CDN on RepliCel's programs and related infrastructure over the next 5 years in Greater China. This includes them funding technology transfer, manufacturing, regulatory submissions and clinical trials in Greater China as well as the commercial launch of our dermal injector in Greater China. YOFOTO has told us it expects to spend much more than this minimum. YOFOTO has also committed to over $4.5M CDN in milestone payments, some of which are pre-commercial, and sales royalties.

In addition to funding clinical development and commercialization in Greater China as a licensee, YOFOTO is now a significant investor in RepliCel having invested just over $5M CDN at $0.95 per common share. RepliCel will use the proceeds from this investment to fund its programs in Europe and North America. Additionally, YOFOTO has financing participation rights for two years to maintain their pro-rata ownership position which translates into a likely lead order in any private placement that may be needed in the future.

Near-term Commercial Opportunity

There are two near-term commercial opportunities for RepliCel programs. Firstly, with sufficiently positive data from the RCH-01 clinical study in Japan, Shiseido may be in a position to launch the product in Japan for the treatment of patients with androgenic alopecia. Secondly, YOFOTO is committed to launching the RCI-02 dermal injector in Hong Kong as soon as it is CE-marked. The CE mark also presents a significant new partnering opportunity to secure a commercial partnership for the launch of the device in Europe and other countries recognizing the CE mark approval.

Either or both of these potential commercial launches would transition RepliCel from being a pre-revenue development company to generating revenue as a commercial entity. This is a material transition in the minds of many retail and institutional investors and is expected to help offset our future development costs for other products.

Development Next Steps

RepliCel will focus resources and capacities on three priorities in the near-term:

  1. Finalizing the dermal injector to build the commercial-grade prototypes, test and validate its function, and submit an application for a CE mark to enable its commercial launch;
  2. Engaging in the technology transfer work needed from Europe and Canada to set YOFOTO up in China to prepare for clinical trials there as quickly as possible; and
  3. Preparing for next-stage clinical trials.

Partnership and Business Development Update

Many shareholders have been asking about the status of our relationship with Shiseido. This remains unchanged from the information provided in September 2016. This may or may not change if positive clinical data is announced in the coming weeks from the Japanese clinical study and/or if Shiseido announces an intention to commercially launch the product in Japan. We continue to press for a commercial solution with Shiseido that is mutually beneficial.

With the YOFOTO partnership now in place to begin executing our collaboration, I will be turning attention to other strategic corporate opportunities. I firmly believe we are not done on the deal-making front even in the near-term. We are in active and promising discussions with other potential partners which I look forward to providing more insights on in the coming months.

The next 18 months

RepliCel shareholders should expect to see an exciting stream of activity and updates coming out of China (funded by YOFOTO) in addition to RepliCel activity with particular focus on its device commercialization (funded by this recent transaction).

In January, I laid out an ambitious plan for what shareholders should watch for in 2018. We are, without question, behind schedule on many of these items because of how long it took us to get to an executed agreement with YOFOTO and to close the associated financing transaction. Some of these milestones will clearly slip into 2019; others we will double our efforts on to catch up and deliver yet this year.

Near-term catalysts to watch for over the next 15-18 months include:

  • Anticipated announcement of clinical results from the Shiseido-funded pattern baldness study in Japan
  • Commercial-grade prototypes of the dermal injector built and available for clinical and functional testing
  • Launch of clinical testing of the injector at select clinical sites for limited clinical applications
  • CE-mark of the dermal injector to be followed by a new level of commercial partnership discussions
  • Registration of the RCI-02 CE mark in Hong Kong for a commercial launch of the dermal injector by YOFOTO
  • A decision from Shiseido on if and when it intends to launch of the RCH-01 in Japan
  • Data from the gene marker identification study ongoing at University of British Columbia
  • Receipt of grant funding to fund further product development
  • Completion of YOFOTO's manufacturing facility in Ningbo, China
  • Completion of technology transfer of the two licensed cell therapy programs to YOFOTO
  • Guidance from Chinese regulators on approvals for clinical trials of RCS-01 (skin rejuvenation) and RCT-01 (tendon regeneration) in China
  • A designation from Chinese regulators for the RCI-02 (dermal injector) in mainland China

As resources permit, we will continue planning with leading experts in North America, Europe, and Asia on:

  • establishing a regulatory dialogue with the United States FDA;
  • finalizing plans for phase 2 clinical trials; and
  • additional manufacturing optimization projects as we plan for profitable commercialization.

In summary, we have leveraged our accomplishments in 2017 into a new partnership which brings tremendous value to RepliCel shareholders and puts us on a trajectory for great things to come in the coming year. We have a pipeline of activity and news which I believe will demonstrate significant momentum throughout the remainder of the year as we work to deliver on near-term milestones and catalysts including transitioning into a revenue-generating, commercial-stage Company with the launch of our first products.

I look forward to getting back on the road, as time permits, to meet with many of you. As always, I warmly welcome your emails, phone calls, or meeting requests.

Sincerely,

R. Lee Buckler
RepliCel President and CEO

With a new Asian partnership and 2017 deliverables met, RepliCel is primed and ready for expansion

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – 25 January 2018 – RepliCel Life Sciences Inc. (OTCQB: REPCF) (TSXV: RP) (FRA:P6P2) (“RepliCel” or the “Company”), a company developing next-generation technologies in aesthetics and orthopedics, is pleased to provide an update to shareholders from its President and CEO, Mr. R. Lee Buckler.

Dear Shareholders,

I am very pleased to be providing this 2018 update. The Company had a very successful 2017, which has only paved the way for a successful year as we enter into 2018. We are ramping up for expansion of all our programs and are actively focused on additional partnership discussions to drive the Company towards maturation. These are exciting times and we look forward to sharing more news as RepliCel continues to gain momentum taking its place as a biotech industry leader.

Looking back over the past 24 months, 2016 was about restructuring and refinancing the Company, 2017 was about delivering promised clinical and injector milestones, and now 2018 is about expansion.

With the rebuilding that the Company has accomplished in the past 24 months, RepliCel has now set the stage to execute across multiple fronts over the next 24 months. Armed with clinical data, functioning device prototypes, a new partner committed to financing our programs in Greater China, and significant capital to execute our programs elsewhere through 2019, we have now positioned RepliCel to deliver on its next phase across several platforms at a faster pace.

We have ongoing research programs at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, the Shiseido-funded clinical research in Japan, and our dermal injector development taking place in Europe. Expanding from there, we are laying plans for development programs with lead experts in North America and Europe, phase 2 clinical trials in Europe, new clinical trials in Hong Kong and mainland China, regulatory clarity with the United States FDA, and exploring other deals currently under discussion.

In 2018, shareholders should expect to see:

  • The launch of a European multi-centre, phase 2 clinical trial measuring the impact of RCS-01 injections on aging skin.
  • Completion of commercial-grade prototypes for the RCI-02 dermal injector.
  • Filing of a CE-mark application for our dermal injector seeking the regulatory marketing approval needed to commercially launch the device in Europe and Hong Kong.
  • Preparations for launching the device in Hong Kong by licensing partner, YOFOTO (China) Health Industry Co. Ltd.
  • Data from the clinical research being funded by Shiseido in Japan measuring the benefit of RCH-01 injections in men and women suffering from hair loss due to androgenic alopecia.
  • Data from the research program at UBC identifying different genetic marker expression profiles of various cell populations in the hair follicle with an aim of potentially improving cell selection, manufacturing, and clinical outcomes.
  • The launch of tendon repair (RCT-01) and skin rejuvenation (RCS-01) clinical trial activity in Hong Kong and/or Mainland China funded by YOFOTO.
  • The launch of planned product development projects with various partners intended to add significant value to our programs.
  • A meeting with the FDA reviewing one or more of our programs.
  • Business development activity which may well lead to the execution of other commercial partnerships.

Unlike previous years, not only are we are financed to move through these milestones, we have new, significant non-dilutive funding commitments for much of this expansion, subject to successful closing of the deal with YOFOTO.

The pending investment from and partnership with YOFOTO, announced earlier this month, brings to RepliCel a new major shareholder committed not only to finance the programs licensed for Greater China but also to the overall success of the Company. The dilutive investment upfront will be used to fund our programs outside of Asia. This will be counterbalanced with YOFOTO’s funding of our programs in Greater China which will bring significant value to the Company as they generate clinical data and commercialize products. RepliCel shareholders can also look forward to the Company receiving further non-dilutive milestone and royalty payments as part of the YOFOTO partnership.

With the YOFOTO partnership including the dermal injector, we now have a commercial partner able to launch the device commercially in Hong Kong once we have obtained CE-mark approval. This means we now have commercial partnerships in place not only with the potential for near-term commercial launch of RCH-01 in Japan but also a near-term launch of the injector of the device in Hong Kong.

As I outlined in our September press release, we have leveraged our progress in 2017 into a very exciting pipeline of ongoing partnership discussions. While we have now announced the YOFOTO partnership focused on product development and commercialization in Greater China, we have other deals we are in a position to consider in the months ahead. These potential partnerships offer unique opportunities to position and capitalize the Company on its path to increasing maturity.

(OTCQB: REPCF) (TSXV: RP) (FRA:P6P2) (“RepliCel” or the “Company”), a company developing next-generation technologies in aesthetics and orthopedics, is pleased to announce it has signed a Binding Term Sheet (the “Term Sheet”) with YOFOTO (China) Health Industry Co. Ltd. (\"YOFOTO\") to form a strategic partnership (the “Transaction”) in Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) (the \"Territory\").

The deal reflected in the Term Sheet, involves an up-front investment of USD $6,500,000 and potential pre-commercial, non-dilutive milestones payments of another USD $2,800,000. Additionally, the Term Sheet commits YOFOTO to another USD $1,000,000 in potential post-commercial non-dilutive milestone payments, several million in dedicated program funding in Greater China over the next five years, and future royalty payments calculated on gross product sales in the Territory.

The investment is by way of the purchase of common shares (each, a “Share”) at CDN$0.54 per Share, which is a premium over the 20-day average market price to reflect the accompanying license to YOFOTO in the Term Sheet. The Company has also agreed to issue share purchase warrants (each, a “Warrant”) equal to 10% of the number of Shares issued, which warrants will be exercisable at CDN$0.54 per Share for a period of two years.

YOFOTO has already paid a deposit of USD $650,000 (the “Deposit”) pursuant to the agreement. As part of the Transaction, YOFOTO will receive an exclusive license for RepliCel's tendon regeneration cell therapy (RCT-01) in development, skin rejuvenation cell therapy (RCS-01) in development, and its injection technology in development for dermal applications (RCI-02) (excluding hair-related treatments) for the Territory.

According to sources, the Chinese cosmetic treatment market is growing up to six times faster than the global average by number of treated people with the number of procedures increasing as much as 40% year-on-year. Most experts now agree China now represents the third largest cosmetic treatment market behind only the United States and Brazil but closing in fast.[1]

In 2013, RepliCel executed a co-development and license agreement with Shiseido Company, which covered all of Asia for its product (RCH-01) in development for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. With the completion of the YOFOTO deal, RepliCel's current technologies will be fully licensed in Greater China.

RepliCel's business model is focused on leveraging its expertise in developing assets that can then be licensed to partners for co-development and commercialization. The Company maintains exclusivity over its entire portfolio outside of Asia. The Company is pursuing both its own continued development and commercialization of its assets as well as other collaborative partnerships for its programs in different regions of the world.

\"This is precisely the kind of transformational deal and collaboration we were focused on delivering as we ended 2017,\" stated RepliCel President and CEO, R. Lee Buckler. \"We are very pleased to have secured a partnership with a company committed to bringing novel health products to Greater China and the principle of investing in regenerative medicines,\" he continued. \"YOFOTO has the vision, financial capacity, and infrastructure to be a key part of RepliCel's success overall and certainly capable of exceeding our goals for Greater China.\"

\"YOFOTO is committed to being a leader in China in the commercialization of regenerative medicines which fit into our core values related to beauty and healthy, active lifestyles,\" stated YOFOTO Chairman Mr. Huang Jin Bao. \"RepliCel Life Sciences, with its cell therapy and injection technologies focused on healthy skin and tendon health, fit perfectly with YOFOTO's vision for providing innovative treatments to consumers. As an investor, we are committed to contributing to RepliCel's global success and as a strategic partner in Greater China, we look forward to collaborating with RepliCel on quality product development leading to the launch of several successful product lines.\"

As part of the Transaction, the Company has agreed to grant YOFOTO certain financing participation rights and board seat nominations and YOFOTO has agreed to certain voting and trading restrictions. Closing of the Transaction is subject to execution of definitive agreements for the Transaction, receipt of approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company’s shareholders and other applicable regulatory authorities including but not limited to the reviews and approvals by State Administration of Foreign Exchange of China and other Chinese foreign investment regulatory authorities.
