The gross proceeds to Bio-Path from the offering are expected to be approximately $1.2 million, before deducting the placement agent’s fees and other offering expenses payable by Bio-Path. Bio-Path currently intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The shares of common stock (or common stock equivalents) offered in the registered direct offering (but excluding the unregistered warrants or the shares of common stock underlying such unregistered warrants) described above are being offered and sold by Bio-Path pursuant to a “shelf” registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-265282), including a base prospectus, previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 27, 2022, and declared effective by the SEC on June 14, 2022. The offering of the shares of common stock (or common stock equivalents) are being made only by means of a prospectus, including a prospectus supplement, forming a part of the effective registration statement. A final prospectus supplement and an accompanying base prospectus relating to, and describing the terms of, the registered direct offering will be filed with the SEC and will be available on the SEC's website located at http://www.sec.gov.

Wainwright & Co., LLC at 430 Park Ave., New York, New York 10022, by telephone at (212) 856-5711, or by email at placements@hcwco.com.

The offer and sale of the unregistered warrants are being made in a transaction not involving a public offering and have not been registered under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated thereunder and, along with the shares of common stock underlying such unregistered warrants, have not been registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the unregistered warrants and the underlying shares of common stock may not be reoffered or resold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such applicable state securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
