Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 5, 2024, Promis Neurosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an At The Market Offering Agreement (the “Agreement”) with BTIG, LLC, serving as agent (the “Agent”) with respect to an at-the-market offering program under which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time at its sole discretion, its common shares, no par value (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate offering price of up to $25.0 million (the “Shares”) through the Agent (the “Offering”). Any Shares offered and sold in the Offering will be issued pursuant to the Company’s shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-274658) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 22, 2023, in the form in which it became effective on September 29, 2023, the related prospectus contained therein, and the prospectus supplement relating to the Offering filed with the SEC on January 5, 2024 and any applicable additional prospectus supplements related to the Offering that form a part of the Registration Statement.

The Agent may sell the Shares by any method permitted by law deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including, without limitation, sales made through The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) or on any other existing trading market for the Common Stock. The Agent will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Shares from time to time consistent with its normal sales practices and applicable federal rules, regulations and Nasdaq rules, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). The Company will pay the Agent a commission equal to up to three percent (3%) of the gross sales proceeds of any Shares sold through the Agent under the Agreement, and also has provided the Agent with customary indemnification and contribution rights.

The Agent is not required to sell any specific number or dollar amount of securities, but will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell, on behalf of the Company, all of the shares of common stock requested to be sold by the Company, consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between the Agent and the Company. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in any escrow, trust or similar arrangement.

The foregoing description of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the opinion of McMillan LLP relating to the legality of the issuance and sale of the shares in the Offering is attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation, or sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
