This News Release contains certain forward-looking statements and information regarding Helix BioPharma Corp. ("Helix" or the "Company"), its proposed use of proceeds of the private placement, its estimated net proceeds of the placement, and its clinical trial and development initiatives, which statements and information can be identified by the use of forward looking terminology such as "will", "estimated", "expanding", and "developing". Helix's actual results could differ materially from these forward-looking statements and information as a result of numerous risk factors, including without limitation, the risk that that the net proceeds of the placement may be different than estimated and may be used for purposes other than those currently intended; research & development risks, which may result in material changes to, or the termination of, the Company's clinical trial and development initiatives; and Helix's continuing need for additional future capital to carry on its business, which may not be available. The latter two risks and uncertainties, and others affecting the Company, are more fully described in the Company's latest MD&A, Form 20-F, and other reports filed with the Canadian Securities Regulatory Authorities and the U.S. S.E.C. from time to time at www.sedar.com, and www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml, respectively.
