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

for at least 90% of the shares of YMI Corporation, subject to confirmation by YMI that it has not entered into any agreement to sell equity securities or incur any indebtedness since the date of its most recently published financial statements, declared any cash dividends nor entered into any commercial or other agreements outside of the ordinary course of business during that period, and that it will not do so going forward.

Andrew Limpert, interim CEO of BBM stated: "We believe a combined BBM and YMI will make a powerful Biotech combination. The scientific synergies and collective management skills, with the recent addition of Dr. Hirschman to BBM, combined with the already impressive team at YMI will create significant value creation for all stake holders involved. We look forward to working with YMI and also on future acquisitions of promising pharmaceuticals." Dr. Shalom Z. Hirschman, consultant to BBM leading its acquisition program, added, "A creative approach to the clinical development of YMI's most promising chemotherapeutic agents can add great benefit to the treatment of particular neoplasms and enhance shareholder value. The science underlying YMI's products meshes very well with the technology recently acquired by BBM."

The full text of the offer letter was filed by BBM in a Form 8-K today.
