BBM Announces Offer to Acquire YM BioSciences Inc.
Date:11/13/2008

NEW YORK, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BBM Holdings (OTC Bulletin Board: BBMO) announced today that it has made an offer to acquire YM BioSciences Inc. (Amex: YMI) by a letter to YMI's Chief Executive Officer, Dr. David Allan.

Under BBM's proposal, BBM would acquire in a merger all of the outstanding shares of YMI common stock for consideration per share of $0.50 in cash plus 0.375 share of BBM common stock (aggregating for all YMI stockholders approximately 45% of the combined company's outstanding stock after giving effect to the merger). All options from YMI will be replaced with equivalent options and the options of the YMI board members and management will be replaced with BBM options at the most recent BBM closing price prior to announcement of the final agreement on the merger. The offer is subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements, approval of the agreement by our respective boards of directors, completion of limited confirmatory due diligence, approval of the merger by your shareholders and regulatory approval. BBM anticipates funding the cash portion of this transaction through short-term debt financing with affiliates of BBM stockholders, subject to final negotiation.

The cash portion of BBM's proposal represents a premium of 84.5% above the closing price of YMI common stock of $0.271 on November 12, 2008 (and a substantially greater premium taking into account the value of the BBM stock issued in the merger). BBM is pursuing a new acquisition strategy to create a large rollup of small biotechnology companies.

Alternatively, if YMI's board of directors prefers not to negotiate a merger as proposed, BBM is willing to undertake a tender offer at a cash price of U.S. $0.60 per share
