TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF What Do We Do – Our Proprietary Technology Under normal circumstances the bonds between carbohydrate atoms are unstable and break down in the presence of enzymes. The natural instability in carbohydrates can cause: Decreased efficacy Toxicity and safety issues Rapid pharmacokinetics requiring multiple daily doses and inconvenience for patients Decreased shelf life for compound storage Sirona Biochem has developed a proprietary technology that strengthens the bonds between these atoms using fluorine chemistry. The resulting increase in stability can cause: Greater efficacy Minimized or eliminated toxicity and safety issues Slower-acting pharmacokinetics, fewer doses, increased profitability, increased patient compliance Longer shelf life and cheaper storage costs Molecule
TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Fluorination - Background Approximately 15% of drugs since 1960 have been fluorinated. In 2012, Sigma Aldrich reports that 8 of 39 FDA approved drugs were fluorinated. Blockbuster Examples of Fluorinated Pharmaceutical Compounds: Lipitor (Pfizer) –Best selling pharmaceutical compound over the past decade Ciprofloxacin (Bayer) – 5 th most prescribed antibacterial in USA Lipitor Ciprofloxacin
TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Competition Sirona Biochem’s competition exists in the following areas: o Academic Institutions o They do not focus on commercial potential o They prefer to publish their results, compromising commercial opportunity o These laboratories cannot be acquired o In-house laboratories of pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies o These scientists are generalists, focusing on all areas of chemistry. They are not specialists with careers focused only in fluorination chemistry. o We have sat across the table from the Head Scientists of some of the world’s largest companies and we consistently hear: “we can’t wait to learn how you do this” o Direct Competitors o We are not aware of any direct competitors, this is a very difficult science o There are other fluorination laboratories but they do not focus on carbohydrate stabilization An example of Sirona’s technical ability: Since its discovery in 1969, scientists have been trying to synthesize the glycoprotein found in fish living under the Antarctic ice caps. o Almost 45 years later, Sirona is still the only company to synthesize this glycoprotein, successfully stabilizing it for human use.

TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Private Placement – Terms and Use of Funds Terms of the Private Placement Private Placement: $5.3M CDN Share price: $.16 CDN Warrant Offering: ½ Warrant at $.27 CDN Valid for 3 years 8% Finder’s Fees and 8% Finder’s Warrants Use of Funds To more than double the size of TFChem’s building To hire 28 new scientists, operational and administrative staff in TFChem To hire additional business development support for Sirona Biochem To secure 2 years of operating capital for Sirona Biochem and TFChem Net Benefit to Shareholder Sirona Biochem’s revenue potential and net value increases directly in proportion to the number of new compounds we transact. More compounds created equal more potential licensing fees, milestone payments and royalty payments If being valued as an acquisition, a multiple will be applied against current revenue and predictable milestone and royalty revenue. We need to grow as quickly as possible to maximize an early acquisition valuation.
TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Why Invest – Near Term Potential We are working to finalize our next partnership with the French Government o Building on the success of our skin lightening grant from the French Government and European Union: o We have requested support from the French Government to grow TFChem; tripling the size of the building and hiring 28 new employees to support new compound development. o Sirona’s business growth will be driven by increasing the number of licensing transactions it completes. More compounds equal more licensing fees, milestone payments and royalty streams.
TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Why Invest – Mid Term Potential Past 15 month’s performance as a predictor of next 15 months o Sirona Biochem has accomplished the following: o Turned around a declining share price from a low of $.035 per share to current price of $.175 per share o Grown the market cap from $2.7M to $19M o Raised $3.5M including the last private placement, a $1M bridge that was oversubscribed in less than a day o Sirona has signed LOI’s to license the compounds that are ready for transaction. These agreements will complete the transition from Sirona being a speculative pre-revenue company into an revenue generating business engaged with some of the most credible global brands in the world o Sirona has already got a Letter of Interest for it’s next compound and it is not yet completed. Work should begin shortly on the collaboration with CCHMC to create a leading anti-aging cosmetic cream. The project has already been in the news in multiple US, Canada and European publications. The potential for this compound to be licensed in 2014 is real. o Sirona has secured a Joint Venture with Bloom Burton, Canada’s leading healthcare investment bank, where Sirona will endeavor to create seven new compounds in the anti-infective and anti-inflammation therapeutic areas. Once the compounds are created, Bloom Burton will be responsible for all financing, clinical development, regulatory requirements and transactions. Sirona and Bloom Burton have an un-dilutable share structure in the Joint Venture for dispursement of all transaction revenue. o As Sirona grows its share price and market cap as a revenue generating company, we are working towards uplisting to a senior exchange in the US to support new investment and increased trading volume. Graduating to a new exchange should be a material event in our growth. o As Sirona continues to successfully create commercial products for cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications, there will be an increasing amount of focus on Sirona as a target for acquisition by major drug and cosmetic companies trying to secure new product pipelines. There is an ongoing history of these acquisitions taking place in each of our target industries.
TSX-V: SBM OTCQX: SRBCF Why Invest – Long Term Potential We are setting ourselves up to be acquired o Sirona is building a high margin, managed-risk business model in two extremely lucrative marketplaces. o Not only will we be attractive as an acquisition by a cosmetic or pharmaceutical company looking to increase its bottom line, Sirona as a drug and ingredient discovery company represents a future pipeline of products for any acquiring company. We believe this is the more likely catalyst for Sirona being acquired and there is a history of acquisitions supporting this model: o The royalty fees from our skin lightening compound should become active in early 2015 and we will be receiving milestone payments during the development of our SGLT2 Inhibitor. The opportunity of fee-for-service chemistry for big pharma companies and new product transactions in anti-aging cosmetics are very possible. The expansion of TFChem will enable us to take on more projects, finish them more quickly, and transact them earlier. The long term potential of 10+ new products being created and licensed per year is realistic. o We have already had our first conversation about being acquired. The more time we are given to grow, the more attractive we will become. Successful Transactions – Indicators of Potential Value o 2013 Optimer Pharmaceuticals Inc. acquired by Cubist for an aggregate upfront cash consideration of $551 Million. o 2011 GlycoMimetics’ entered into partnership with Pfizer. The agreement provides potential value to GlycoMimetics of over $340 Million, plus tiered, double-digit royalties. o 2005 Glycart acquired by Roche. Roche trading at CHF ($280 USD) as of Jan 8, 4:00 PM EST
