(“Company”), announced that it has entered into a Share Subscription Agreement (“Agreement”) for a private placement (“Private Placement”) of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), with an accredited investor (“Investor”). The Private Placement closed with respect to the Investor on January 21, 2020.

In addition, there was no general solicitation conducted in connection with the offer and sale of the Common Stock.

Dear Mr. Waggoner:
The undersigned (“Subscriber”) hereby subscribes for thirty million (30,000,000) shares of restricted common stock (“Shares”), par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), of PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Company”), at a cash purchase price per share of $0.005 (“Purchase Price”).

The Subscriber agrees that it will have no rights as a holder of Common Stock until the Payment is received by the Company.
2. Subscription Compliance. The Subscriber agrees that this subscription is subject to the following terms and conditions:
The Company shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to: (i) accept or reject this subscription; (ii) determine whether this Share Subscription Agreement (“Agreement”) has been properly completed by the Subscriber; and (iii) determine whether the Subscriber has met all of the Company’s requirements for investment in the Shares. If the Company deems this subscription to be defective, deficient or otherwise non-compliant with the terms of this offering, the Subscriber’s funds will be returned promptly to the Subscriber without interest or deduction.

The Subscriber has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be able to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the Company.
b. The Subscriber has had the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares by the Company and to obtain any additional information the Subscriber has requested which is necessary to verify the accuracy of the information furnished to the Subscriber concerning the Company and such offering.
4. Representations and Warranties of Company. In connection with the Sale of the Shares, the Company hereby represents and warrants to the Subscriber as follows:
a. The Company has all requisite power and authority to execute, deliver, and perform its obligations under this Agreement, and, when executed and delivered by the Subscriber, shall constitute a valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent conveyance, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights and remedies generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity);
b. The Shares have been duly authorized and, when conveyed by the Company to the Subscriber on the Payment Date, all in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable;
c. Neither the execution or delivery of this Agreement, nor any other documents required to be executed and delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, nor the consummation of the transaction contemplated hereby: (i) conflicts with or constitutes any violation or breach; or (ii) gives any other person any rights (including, but not limited to, any legal rights to acceleration, termination, cancellation or recession) under any document or agreement to which the Company is a party. Neither the Company’s entry into this Agreement, nor the Company’s representations made in this Agreement, constitute a violation of any order or applicable law that the Company or to which the Company’s assets are bound by or subject; and
d. The Company is a corporation validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Nevada.
5. Representations of Subscriber. In connection with the purchase of the Shares, the Subscriber hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
a. The Subscriber is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”);
b. The Shares are being purchased for the Subscriber’s own account without the participation of any other person, with the intent of holding the Shares for investment and without the intent of participating, directly or indirectly, in a distribution of the Shares and not with a view to, or for a resale in connection with, any distribution of the Shares or any portion thereof, nor is the Subscriber aware of the existence of any distribution of the Company’s securities. Furthermore, the Subscriber has no present intention of dividing the Shares with others or reselling or otherwise disposing of any portion of the Shares, either currently or after the passage of a fixed or predeterminable period of time, or upon the occurrence or nonoccurrence of any predetermined event or circumstance;
c. The Subscriber has no need for liquidity with respect to its purchase of the Shares and is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares for an indefinite period of time and is further able to afford a complete loss of such investment;
d. The Subscriber recognizes that the Shares will be sold to the Subscriber without registration under any United States federal or other law relating to the registration of securities for sale;
e. The Subscriber is aware that any resale of the Shares cannot be made except in accordance with the registration requirements of the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom;
f. The Subscriber represents and warrants that all offers and sales of the Shares shall be made pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Securities Act or pursuant to registration under the Securities Act, and the Subscriber will not engage in any hedging or short selling transactions with regard to the Shares;
g. The Subscriber is not acquiring the Shares based upon any representation, oral or written, by any person with respect to the future value of, or income from, the Shares but rather upon an independent examination and judgment as to the prospects of the Company;
h. The Subscriber understands that the Company has had a limited operating history, and, as a result, its operations have produced no revenues from its products and that the Company has incurred expenses and has sustained losses. The Subscriber further understands that the Company’s operations are subject to all the risks inherent in the establishment of a biotechnology company. The Subscriber appreciates and understands the risks involved with investing in a Company with a limited operating history and has read and understands the risk factors and other information set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on August 13, 2019 (“Annual Report”). The Annual Report and any future filings made with the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), can be obtained by visiting the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. The Subscriber agrees that it is not relying on any other written information which may have been provided by the Company;
i. The Subscriber represents, warrants and agrees that it will not sell or otherwise transfer the Shares without registration under the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and fully understands and agrees that the Subscriber must bear the economic risk of its purchase because, among other reasons, the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act or under the securities laws of any state and, therefore, cannot be resold, pledged, assigned or otherwise disposed of unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and under the applicable securities laws of such states, or an exemption from such registration is available. In particular, the Subscriber is aware that the Shares are “restricted securities,” as such term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), and they may not be sold pursuant to Rule 144 unless all of the conditions of Rule 144 are met by the Subscriber;
j. The Company has made no representations or warranties as to the suitability of the Subscriber’s investment in the Company, the length of time the undersigned will be required to own the Shares or the profit to be realized, if any, as a result of investment in the Company. Neither the Company nor its counsel has made an independent investigation on behalf of the Subscriber, nor has the Company, by and through itself and counsel, acted in any advisory capacity to the Subscriber;
k. The Shares were not offered to the Subscriber by means of publicly disseminated advertisement or sales literature, nor is the Subscriber aware of any offers made to other persons by such means; and
l. All information which the Subscriber has provided to the Company concerning the Subscriber is correct and complete as of the date set forth at the end of this Agreement, and if there should be any material adverse change in such information prior to receiving notification that this subscription has been accepted, the Subscriber will immediately provide the Company with such information.

c. The Company is under no obligation to register the Shares or to comply with any exemption available for sale of the Shares without registration, and the information necessary to permit routine sales of securities of the Company under Rule 144 of the Securities Act may not be available when the Subscriber desires to resell them pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act. The Company is under no obligation to act in any manner so as to make Rule 144 available with respect to the Shares;
d. The Company may, if it so desires, refuse to permit the transfer of the Shares unless the request for transfer is accompanied by an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Company to the effect that neither the sale nor the proposed transfer will result in any violation of the Securities Act or the applicable securities laws of any other jurisdiction; and
e. A legend indicating that the Shares have not been registered under such securities laws and referring to the restrictions and transferability of the Shares may be placed on the stock certificates delivered to the Subscriber or any substitutes thereof and any transfer agent of the Company may be instructed to require compliance therewith.
