    Calyx (CYX.V) Majority-Owned Subsidiary, Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., Enters Into Mark

    Calyx (CYX.V) Majority-Owned Subsidiary, Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., Enters Into Marketing and Distribution Agreement With Subsidiary of Paterson Grain

    VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 3, 2013) -Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) is pleased to announce that its majority-owned subsidiary, Agrisoma Biosciences Inc. ("Agrisoma") and PGF Biofuels Inc. ("PGF") have entered into a long term strategic agreement for marketing and distribution.

    PGF is a wholly owned subsidiary of Paterson GlobalFoods Inc. ("Paterson"), owner of Paterson Grain. Paterson is a private family-owned group of companies active in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Founded in 1908 and headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Paterson operates approximately 40 grain handling sites across the Canadian prairies, including nine inland export terminals.

    The new long-term agreement appoints PGF as Agrisoma's exclusive partner for Resonance® carinata, a non-food oilseed crop, in North America and Australia, and establishes a framework through which PGF and Agrisoma will coordinate expansion into additional regions. Under the original agreement in 2012, Paterson was the exclusive contracting partner for the production of Resonance® in Western Canada.

    Paterson played a key role in the commercial production launch of Resonance® in 2012, acting as the contracting partner for 6,000 acres planted and harvested last year at approximately 40 farms in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Fifty acres were planted in 2011. Under the new agreement Paterson will manage the purchase of Resonance® carinata production from growers and the subsequent processing and sale of product. Agrisoma will be paid a royalty on sales generated from Resonance® carinata, which will vary depending on the nature of the end products sold.

    Hugh Notman, president and CEO of Calyx, said, "The agreement is vital to building the value chain from seed through to product sales. Our focus now turns to ramping up carinata production in the coming years."

    "Building a strong partnership between Agrisoma and Paterson strengthens our goals to cover a much broader geographical region," said Dr. Steven Fabijanski, president and CEO of Agrisoma. "As we expand the production of Resonance® carinata, there isn't a better company to work with than Paterson. They have been at the forefront of the grain handling business for more than a century and are leaders in seed sales, relationships with farmers, logistics, transportation, elevation and the sale of grain."

    "We are pleased to expand our relationship with Agrisoma, and pursue the potential of Resonance® at a global scale," said Andrew Paterson, CEO of Paterson GlobalFoods Inc. "We have an unwavering commitment to bold innovation and new opportunities. We highly value our relationships, and Resonance® offers farmers crop rotation flexibility, another source of income and a chance to participate in the flourishing bio-energy sector."

    "PGF provides a very important link in the biofuel value chain," said Dr. Fabijanski. "Paterson's leadership in the grain handling industry expands our ability to scale Resonance® carinata, and allows us to focus on our core competencies as a seed and technology company."

    Resonance® carinata has been specifically developed for production on semi-arid land such as the brown soil zone regions of Western Canada found in southern Saskatchewan and Alberta and other regions. The crop produces oil suited to industrial uses, such as biofuel production, and was the exclusive feedstock for the first 100% biofuel flight flown in October, 2012. The crop is vigorous and hearty, with good resistance to ecosystem stressors. Resonance® carinata showed potential in 2012 by growing well under a variety of conditions that were less than ideal.

    Scientific Study Reveals ReadiDiesel® Meets Petroleum-Based Diesel Specifications Without Blending Fossil Fuels

    Source: http://bit.ly/19kX881

    June 24, 2013 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX-V: CYX) is
    pleased to announce that Resonance® energy feedstock provided by Calyx subsidiary Agrisoma Biosciences, was found to be the most similar to petroleum-derived fuels as compared to other renewable fuels tested in a recent study conducted by the Coordinating Research Council (CRC), a non-profit organization that encourages, promotes and studies various fuels through scientific research.

    The study, Advanced Alternative and Renewable Diesel Fuels: Detailed Characterization of
    Physical and Chemical Properties, confirmed that ReadiDiesel®, made from Agrisoma’s
    Resonance™ energy cairnata feedstock, “looked more like the petroleum-derived fuels than the
    other renewable fuels…” The study compared the results of detailed analyses of the physical and chemical properties of 10 advanced alternative and renewable diesel fuels and four commercial ultra low sulfur diesels.

    A key objective of the blind study was to identify the similarities and differences of alternative
    and renewable fuels as compared to conventional petroleum derived diesel fuels. Samples were
    obtained from select manufacturers who produced diesel on a relatively large scale (from pilot to
    commercial scale) and agreed to participate in the study.

    Highlights of the report include:
    • Referring to RD3 (ReadiDiesel): “…looked more like the petroleum-derived fuels than
    the other renewable fuels…” Page xviii, Executive Summary.

    • ReadiDiesel was the only fuel tested that had the same level of aromatics as petroleumbased diesel fuel, the main reason most alternative fuels require blending with petroleum.

    ReadiDiesel, made by Applied Research Associates (ARA) and Chevron Lummus Global from
    Agrisoma Resonance® energy feedstock, is referred to as "RD3" in the report the report.
    “The CRC report provides a broad view and comprehensive analysis of the slate of alternative
    and renewable diesel fuels at or near commercial scale. Our ReadiDiesel, made from Agrisoma’s Resonance energy feedstock, clearly stands out, meeting D975 specs without blending and having a molecular makeup that is almost indistinguishable from the ultra low sulfur diesels tested in the program,” said Ed Coppola, ARA Fuels Technical Lead.

    “The fact that ReadiDiesel has a density equivalent to petroleum diesels is significant from an
    operational perspective as it equates to extra miles per gallon for a diesel fleet,” said Chuck Red,
    ARA’s Vice President, Fuels Development.

    “The CRC study is one more confirmation that Resonance® carinata can be used as a feedstock
    for fuels that are complete petroleum substitutes, resulting in substantially reduced carbon and
    other harmful emissions without compromising performance,” said Hugh Notman, president and
    CEO of Calyx. “This further supports our efforts to become a leading non-food source of
    biofuels that can be utilized seamlessly in petroleum-fuel powered engines, whether they be in
    planes, ground transportation or other applications.”

    Access to the full CRC Report visit http://www.crcao.org/reports/recentstudies2013/AVFL-19-
    2/CRC%20Project%20AVFL-19-2%20Final%20Report.pdf

    The AVFL-19 Working Group (of the CRC) is comprised of representatives from energy
    companies, U.S. national labs, and a Canadian national lab. The time and testing expenses of the authors were largely funded by their respective organizations. Members of the U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratories used funding from their budgets provided by U.S. DOE Vehicle Technologies Program. Members of National Resources Canada and Canmet ENERGY used funding from their budgets provided by the Government of Canada’s interdepartmental Program of Energy Research and Development, PERD 113 Petroleum Conversion for Cleaner Air.

    Calyx (TSXV: CYX) Provides Corporate Update and Cancels Private Placement Financing

    Calyx (TSXV: CYX) Provides Corporate Update and Cancels Private Placement Financing




    VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 9, 2014) - Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) ("Calyx" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into an agreement with BDC Capital Inc. and Agrisoma Biosciences Inc. ("Agrisoma") pursuant to which Calyx has agreed to waive its pre-emptive right in order to allow a third party to finance Agrisoma. The proposed Agrisoma financing, if it were to proceed as proposed and without Calyx's participation will, upon closing, dilute Calyx's interest in Agrisoma from 49.96% to approximately 29%. Following an evaluation by an Independent Committee of Calyx's board of directors, it was determined that in Calyx's view, Agrisoma's business had not progressed as expected, and no options for financing Agrisoma could be found that would be satisfactory to shareholders of Calyx.

    Additionally, intellectual property ("IP") which was exclusively licensed to Agrisoma by Calyx is no longer under exclusive license to Agrisoma. With the IP reverting to Calyx, Calyx is now able to license and utilize its IP in other agricultural sector opportunities that it is currently investigating. The unique and powerful features of this technology provide clear advantages for the development of plant-based products. Calyx is in discussions and pursuing a number of new business opportunities in the agriculture and agri-pharmaceutical sectors including the MMPR (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) and marijuana biotech where we can bring our depth of agriculture capacities.

    Accordingly, the Calyx board has determined to cancel the dilutive non-brokered private placement for the issuance of up to 35 million units at a price of six cents per unit for cash proceeds of up to $2.1-million previously announced on March 31, 2014.

    About Calyx
