Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Second Arrangement Agreement, all holders of outstanding Common Shares of Reunion (the "Shareholders") will be entitled to receive US$1.12 in cash for each Common Share held immediately prior to the effective time of the Second Arrangement. Completion of the Second Arrangement will, among other things, require the approval by at least two-thirds (66⅔ percent) of the votes cast by the Shareholders at a special meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting"). Certain founding Shareholders, and all of the Company's officers and directors, representing in aggregate approximately 34% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, have entered into support and voting agreements with MPM pursuant to which they have agreed to, among other things, support and vote in favour of the Second Arrangement. 11 Completion of the Second Arrangement remains subject to the satisfaction (or waiver) of a number of conditions precedent, including, but not limited to the following material conditions: · · obtaining all applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the "Court") of the Second Arrangement; · the net cash held by the Company being equal to or greater than US$8,000,000 as of the close of business on the third business day immediately prior to closing of the Second Arrangement (subject to reduction under certain circumstances); and · the performance or completion in all material respects with all obligations required to be performed by the Company and MPM under the Second Arrangement Agreement. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent for completion of the Second Arrangement, the Second Arrangement is expected to close in the calendar third quarter of 2023. Upon completion of the transaction, the Common Shares will no longer be traded or listed on any public securities exchange and Reunion will be wholly-owned by affiliates of MPM. In the event of a termination of the Second Arrangement in certain circumstances, Reunion has agreed to pay to an affiliate of MPM (a) a termination payment of US$800,000 in cash (the "Termination Payment") and (b) an expense reimbursement payment for transaction expenses incurred by MPM in connection with the Second Arrangement in an amount not to exceed US$1,500,000 (the "Expense Reimbursement"). The Termination Payment and the Expense Reimbursement are credited against each other, whereby the maximum amount that Reunion must pay the affiliate of MPM for the Termination Payment and the Expense Reimbursement shall not exceed US $1,500,000 in the aggregate. The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by the provisions of the respective documents. Reunion has filed a material change report in respect of the Second Arrangement, and copies of the Second Arrangement Agreement, the plan of arrangement and the support and voting agreements have been filed with the applicable Canadian securities regulators and are available for review on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. For additional information regarding the Second Arrangement, please refer to the management information circular from Reunion that was filed on SEDAR and mailed to Shareholders on or about June 19, 2023.

A summary of the history of the drug development business is below. For a summary on the history of the Clinics Business, see the following sections of the Circular available on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com: (i) SpinCo - Name and Incorporation; (ii) SpinCo - General Description of the Business; (iii) SpinCo - Intercorporate Relationships; (iv) SpinCo - General Development of the Business; (v) SpinCo - Trends; (vi) SpinCo - Description of the Business; (vii) SpinCo - Controlled Substances; (viii) SpinCo - Compliance Program; and (ix) SpinCo - Concurrent Financing. In April 2020, Reunion launched a new research and drug development business segment, entitled Field Trip Discovery ("FT Discovery"), which is now the sole business operation of the Company. FT Discovery was an umbrella term used by the Company to divide its personnel between those involved with the former Clinic Business of the Company ("FT Health") and those involved in the pharmaceutical research and drug development operations of the Company. Reunion is developing a molecule called RE104 (formerly FT-104, "RE104"). On June 30, 2020, the company filed an initial provisional (Appl 63,045,901) to cover certain aspects to RE104. On November 3, 2020, an additional provisional patent (Appl 63,109,095) was filed with the USPTO, wherein certain provisional examples were updated with real examples and new information relating to pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of RE104. On October 29, 2020, the Company announced certain results of the development of RE104. The experiments indicated that: (i) RE104 is efficiently and completely converted to the pharmacologically active substance, 4-OH-DiPT, in in vitro plasma tests; (ii) the active molecule is a near equipotent 5HT2A receptor agonist to psilocin, the active substance from psilocybin, that can be delivered with high bioavailability; and (iii) RE104 will likely produce a reliably short-duration of psychedelic experience in the range of two to four hours, which is approximately half the duration of psilocybin. 12 On November 15, 2021, the Company announced: (i) its intention to move to Phase 1 clinical trials of RE104 in the first half of calendar 2022; (ii) the discovery of a novel molecule that, based on in vivo assay details, has the structure of classical psychedelics and has demonstrated imposed selectively for the target serotonin 2A receptors; (iii) the expansion of the scope of its development pipeline to focus on a new group of molecules, termed RE200; and (iv) that it had engaged Bloom Burton Securities Inc. as its financial advisor in connection with a strategic review of the Company (the "Strategic Review") in order to ensure that each operating unit of the Company is best positioned, optimally resourced and focused to provide maximum long-term value to stakeholders. On January 11, 2022, Reunion announced that the USPTO issued a Notice of Allowance for the Company's patent application No. 17/364,047 for claims related to RE104. Claims in the allowed patent application titled, "Tryptamine Prodrugs", cover composition of matter, use and manufacturing of a family of hemi-ester compounds of hydroxytryptamines, including RE104. On April 5, 2022, the USPTO granted Reunion a patent (US 11,292,765) for claims related to RE104 (as described above). The patent provides protection until 2041.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS Reunion is a clinical-stage, pharmaceutical company with a mission to develop innovative therapeutic solutions for underserved mental health conditions. The Company's lead asset, RE104, is a patented, clinical-stage serotonergic psychedelic therapeutic designed as a single-dose, fast-acting and durable antidepressant. The Company recently completed a Phase 1 clinical study where RE104 was shown to be generally safe and well tolerated at the dose recommended for its planned Phase 2 clinical study to evaluate as a potential treatment for patients who suffer from postpartum depression. Reunion also plans to potentially evaluate RE104 in additional indications, including treatment resistant depression (TRD) and other mental health conditions. Reunion is also developing the RE200 series, which are molecules structurally similar to classical psychedelics with selective potency at the target serotonin 2A receptor (5HT2A) and designed to be devoid of 5HT2B receptor agonism. Since 5HT2B activation acts detrimentally on the cardiovascular system, the RE200 series could provide for potentially safer medications, which could eventually find use in chronic treatments, in broader patient populations and/or in a wider set of indications. Advantages of Serotonergic Psychedelics Synthetic and natural serotonergic psychedelics act to stimulate 5HT2A receptors in the brain resulting in acute and long-term effects. In a first, acute phase, which can last for minutes to hours, there is a profound alteration of normal brain signaling and processing, creating what is generally referred to as a "psychedelic experience" or an "altered state of consciousness." Under psychedelics, the brain "escapes" from its usual tightly constrained and predictable patterns of operation, with a global increase in connectivity of brain regions and brain networks. Often, this can allow patients new introspective insights about their past behavior, memories, actions, feelings and beliefs. In a second extended phase, believed to extend from hours to days after a dose, the biochemistry downstream of the 5HT2A receptor can lead to changes in neuronal structure with the strengthening of connections associated with other more positive thought patterns, changes that are grouped under the term neuroplasticity. A psychedelic experience induced by 5HT2A activation is a good and accepted biomarker for potential clinical effects. We believe psychedelic drug administration properly supported by trained healthcare providers may maximize improvements in mental health treatments, including in depression, anxiety and addiction. RE104 Our lead candidate, RE104, is a patented, clinical-stage serotonergic psychedelic therapeutic intended to provide a fast-acting and durable antidepressant effect after a single dose which induces a brief psychedelic experience. RE104 aims to reduce treatment burden and provide a safe and effective new therapeutic option for the large population of underserved patients suffering from postpartum depression and potentially other mental health indications. We have completed our Phase 1 clinical trial with RE104, a unique 4OH-DiPT (4hydroxy-N,N-diisopropyltryptamine) prodrug. The study included 48 healthy volunteers across six ascending dose cohorts with doses of 5, 10, 20, 30, 35.5, and 40 mg of RE104 (RE104 HCl 5.5, 11, 22, 33, 38 and 44 mg). In each cohort, two of the eight subjects received placebo and were later grouped to create a placebo cohort. After administration, RE104 was efficiently converted to 4-OH-DiPT, which produced dose-proportional responses in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and adverse events. 15 Generally, RE104 was shown to be safe and well tolerated, with no serious adverse events. Adverse events were generally dose-proportional and included transient effects typical of classical serotonergic psychedelics, including of nausea, sinus tachycardia (asymptomatic at a maximum recorded value of 115 beats per minute), restlessness, and headache, as well as 2 severe cases of anxiety (one each at doses of 35.5 and 40 mg) which resolved with the administration of midazolam (anxiolytic). The pharmacokinetics demonstrated a peak plasma concentration typically at 65min post administration, with average elimination half-life in the range of 2.5-3.8 h over the range of doses. Intensity of the drug experience over time was measured with the Drug Effect Questionnaire (DEQ). Peak effects were recorded at approximately 1 hour post dose, consistent with peak plasma levels, however the drug effect appeared to dissipate between 2-4 hours, slightly ahead of the plasma profile. The "quality" of the psychedelic experience was assessed using the Mystical Experience Questionnaire (MEQ30), a 30-item tool administered once at 2 hours post-dose. The MEQ30 is a validated and commonly used questionnaire that has been correlated to positive outcomes with psychedelic administration in patients as depression, anxiety and smoking cessation. Using the MEQ30, it was observed that the 5mg dose produced an effect indistinguishable from placebo, there was again a consistent dose-proportional effect from 11 to 40mg on the magnitude of response on the MEQ. At the 30mg dose level, the participants receiving a single administration of RE104 achieved a "complete mystical experience" defined as a score of at least 60 percent of the maximum value in all four domains of the questionnaire, as well as on the total score. Based on the dose response for safety, tolerability and the achievement of a complete mystical experience, the 30mg dose was selected as the optimum dose for Phase 2 studies. At this dose the drug exhibited a 3.7 hour trip duration. Plans are underway to start a Phase 2 clinical trial in postpartum depression ("PPD"). In the future, we may evaluate RE104 in TRD and/or other mental health indications. RE104 is protected under US Patent No. 11,292,765 issued on April 5, 2022 (priority June 30, 2020) Reunion Patent with claims for composition of matter, methods of manufacturing, formulations and methods of use for a genus of hemi-ester tryptamines, including RE104, which could provide protection out to June 30, 2041. RE104 is also covered under the international PCT application (PCT/CA/2021050907) filed June 30, 2021. Reunion intends to enter other major countries via the PCT application process to protect RE104 in major markets where Reunion may eventually pursue commercialization of RE104 in the future. The PCT application provides Reunion with deferred patent filing rights in 150+ countries. The Reunion Patent provides protection to RE104 in the United States until 2041 unless extended. In a letter to Reunion dated January 20, 2023, Mindset Pharma Inc. Mindset stated that the USPTO has issued a Notice of Allowance in US Patent Application No. 17/833,341 and that such application includes claims that Mindset alleges cover Reunion's RE104 compound and asserts a priority date of February 4, 2020. Reunion is investigating US Patent Application No. 17/833,341 including potential offensive strategies with respect to the Mindset patent. Reunion's RE104 compound is specifically disclosed in and protected by the Reunion U.S. Patent No. 11,292,765, which includes claims directed to the RE104 composition of matter, use and manufacturing. RE104 is a clinical-stage asset and not commercialized, and as such, under the Hatch-Waxman Act "safe harbor" provisions, Reunion is not infringing - and could not be infringing - any U.S. patent, including any U.S. patent issued to Mindset. On June 23, 2023, Mindset filed a motion to dismiss in response to the Reunion claims, seeking dismissal of the lawsuit for lack of personal jurisdiction and failure to state a claim. The case remains pending. RE200 Series Our RE200 series of drug discovery candidates are being researched for their potential to exhibit improved cardiovascular safety. Potent 5HT2A agonists with reduced psychoactivity and improved functional selectivity would be preferred candidates. These compounds could provide improved safety and convenience. Candidates in the RE200 series are all in discovery phase with preliminary results in in-vitro and in-vivo pharmacology. We plan to nominate a first lead clinical candidate from the RE200 series in 2023. Based on in vitro receptor binding assay details, we have identified at least one family of structurally- related molecules with improved selectivity for the 5HT2A receptor versus the off-target serotonin receptor 5HT2B. We filed two provisional patents with the USPTO relating to candidates which are 5HT2A agonists and 5HT2B antagonists (US Application Nos. 63/273,720 and 63/334,443). On October 31, 2022, these filings were combined into pending USPTO (App 17/977398) and PCT applications (CA2022051608) to protect the compositions, as well as potential formulations and uses of the molecules. The US application published on May 11, 2023 (US 20230144974). 16 On-going work includes investigating the structural features that define this class of NCE molecules and their properties in in vitro assays, as well as their potential use as therapeutics by performing preclinical testing. Further work is in progress to expand and strengthen our IP portfolio around other novel structures meeting selection criteria for the RE200 series, and by seeking to optimize and synthesize candidates for eventual preclinical development. REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT Reunion operates in a highly regulated industry and in multiple jurisdictions. Below is a summary of key elements of the regulatory environment in which the Company operates. Please refer to the AIF for further information related to the regulatory environment of the Clinic Operations, its discontinued operations. The Company relies on a variety of researchers, medical professionals, suppliers, manufacturers and other service providers for the conduct of its operations. The Company's research and development activities rely on the following relationships with third parties, including (1) engagement by the Company of contract research organizations ("CRO") regarding RE104 preclinical and clinical experimentation, and (2) service agreements with the Company's contract manufacturing organizations ("CMO") in respect of RE104. In addition, the Company has entered into service agreements or statements of work with CMO and CROs which we believe are appropriately negotiated with customary intellectual property and confidentiality provisions. In order to develop regulated medicines, including RE104, the Company's processes must be conducted in strict compliance with the regulations of Health Canada, the FDA/DEA and other applicable federal, state, local and regulatory agencies. RE104 is currently not classified as a federal controlled substance and therefore does not currently require federal controlled substance registrations, licenses, permits or specific approvals. Several states in the US, including West Virginia, Minnesota, North Dakota, Illinois, Nebraska, Alabama, South Dakota, Florida, Virginia, Oklahoma, and Louisiana, as well as the District of Columbia, have, however, scheduled 4-OH-DiPT as a Schedule I controlled substance. Any activities in these states must comply with the state level-controlled substance laws and regulations, including registration and licensing. The Company does not currently have operations in these states. While for the moment, no other jurisdiction has scheduled 4-OH-DiPT, the Company remains vigilant of this potential risk when selecting CMOs and CROs. In January 2022, upon the recommendation of the US Department of Health and Human Services, the DEA proposed to place five tryptamine substances on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, based upon the actual or relative potential for the substances to be abused. These substances included 4-hydroxy-diisopropyltryptamine (4-OH-DiPT), the active substance contained in RE104. According to DEA, the substance has effects that are like those of other Schedule I hallucinogens and that "it is reasonable to assume that this substance has a substantial capability to cause a hazard to public health, both to the user and to the community." Following publication of its scheduling proposal, the DEA received many comments from the public, including comments submitted by Reunion. On July 22, 2022, after consideration of this proposal and the public comments, the DEA announced its withdrawal of the proposed rule and determined that it is appropriate to submit a new request to HHS for an updated scientific and medical evaluation and scheduling recommendation for these substances (Federal register 2022, 87 (143), 45076). As stated above, the Company is monitoring future developments in this area and is mindful of potential scheduling actions when selecting third party vendors and suppliers that could, in the future, require DEA registration. If RE104 or our other product candidates gain approval, they will likely need to be assessed for their potential for abuse and controlled substance scheduling. Specifically, during the review of Investigational New Drug ("IND") applications for drugs that influence the central nervous system and that need to be assessed for the extent to which the drug has a stimulant, depressant, or hallucinogenic effect, FDA will determine whether the drug requires additional nonclinical or clinical studies to address questions regarding abuse potential. Based upon these studies and upon submission of an NDA, FDA may require certain drug abuse and dependence labeling statements in the approved product label and may make recommendations to DEA regarding whether a drug warrants control under the Controlled Substance Act as well as with respect to drug scheduling. Based upon these recommendations, DEA makes a drug scheduling determination within statutorily specified timeframes. The Company will work with the FDA and DEA to obtain appropriate scheduling of RE104 and any other product candidates for use in the marketplace. If it is determined that RE104 or any other product candidate is a controlled substance, we and our manufacturers, distributors, researchers, prescribers, and dispensers will need to obtain DEA controlled substance registrations and will need to follow DEA's extensive controlled substance laws and regulations, which, depending on the ultimate schedule within which a product is placed, may require significant security, recordkeeping, tracking, and reporting measures. 17 The Company relies on third party CMOs for the manufacture of our product candidates, including RE104, and their active ingredients, and third party CROs for the conduct of preclinical and clinical testing. These third parties have been qualified by the Company, which is intended to confirm that these third parties are able to meet the applicable regulatory requirements, including current Good Manufacturing Practices ("cGMPs") that are appropriate and commensurate with our product candidates' stage of development, Good Laboratory Practices ("GLP"), and Good Clinical Practices ("GCP"), as well as regulatory authorization requirements. Our third party CMOs and CROs, in turn, are also reliant on suppliers. For instance, our CMO is reliant on suppliers for starting materials to produce RE104. The preclinical CRO is also reliant on suppliers to carry out in-vitro and in-vivo assays, such as analytical kits, biological reagents, and animal models. The Phase 1 study clinical CRO is further reliant upon and subcontracts to a Principal Investigator ("PI") and a clinical research site who host and oversee the dosing of participants in the Phase 1 study, as well as bioanalytical and laboratory service providers for screening assays for inclusion/exclusion, as well as the analysis of blood samples after dosing of RE104, in addition to several other contractors responsible for the proper conduct of the study. Depending on the materials and services, these suppliers must meet certain regulatory standards and requirements. With respect to our CMOs and CROs, we have implemented various compliance safeguards to confirm their regulatory compliance including the conduct of quality audits and regular meetings. A third-party regulatory group has also been engaged to assist in the development of the regulatory strategies and prepare the necessary regulatory documentation required at each stage of the development program. The Company is making preparations for RE104 to enter Phase 2 clinical development and, as such, ongoing activities include: (1) continual optimization and standardization of Chemistry-Manufacturing and Controls ("CMC") by our CMO partners, including additional chemical characterization, synthesis, process optimization, process scale-up stability, and development of analytical methodology to ensure and improve upon drug product quality, and (2) continual and ongoing non-clinical (same as preclinical) activities ("NCA") by certain CRO partners that measure performance (pharmacokinetics) and safety (toxicology; safety pharmacology, genotoxicity) using a variety of in-vitro and in-vivo experimental assays and tests and (3) clinical activities with our CRO partners wherein the objectives are to understand the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and efficacy of RE104. Reunion is also reliant on CMOs for various chemistry and analytical activities including the preparation of initial quantities of test compounds in the RE200 series of drug candidates. The Company will rely on third parties to help assess the relevant properties of these compounds in a variety of in-vitro and in-vivo assays. We will consider the study results from these assays in determining the potential lead compounds for development from the RE200 series of drug candidates. The Company will follow a similar path as with RE104 to develop the requisite CMC and preclinical results with partners before initiating clinical studies. No material engagements have been made at this date with respect to the RE200 series of drug candidates, as it is still in the laboratory/discovery phase of research. Pharmaceutical Development and Approval Requirements - Canada Before a prescription drug product candidate may be marketed in Canada, the process required generally involves: · Chemical and Biological Research - Laboratory tests are carried out on tissue cultures and with a variety of small animals to determine the effects of the drug. If the results are promising, the manufacturer will proceed to the next step of development. · Preclinical Development - A combination of in-vitro and in-vivo studies assess the effects of the drug in varying amounts over differing periods of time. If it can be shown that the drug causes no serious or unexpected harm at the doses required to have an effect, the manufacturer will proceed to clinical trials. · Clinical Trials - Phase 1 - The first administration in humans is to test if people can tolerate the drug. If this testing is to take place in Canada, the manufacturer must prepare a clinical trial application for the Pharmaceutical Drugs Directorate (formerly the Therapeutic Products Directorate of Health Canada (the "TPD"). This includes the results of the first two steps and a proposal for testing in humans. If the information is sufficient, the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada (the "HPFB") grants permission to start testing the drug, generally first on healthy volunteers. · Clinical Trials - Phase 2 - Phase 2 trials are carried out on people with the target condition (patients), who are usually otherwise healthy, with no other medical condition. Trials carried out in Canada must be approved by the TPD. In Phase 2, the objectives of the trials are to continue to gather information on the safety of the drug and begin to determine its effectiveness. · Clinical Trials- Phase 3 - If the results from Phase 2 show promise, the manufacturer provides an updated clinical trial application to the TPD for Phase 3 trials. The objectives of Phase 3 include determining whether the drug can be shown to be effective, and have an acceptable side effect profile, in people who better represent the general population. Further information will also be obtained on how the drug should be used, the optimal dosage regimen and the possible side effects. · New Drug Submission - If the results from Phase 3 continue to be favorable, the drug manufacturer can submit a new drug submission ("NDS") to the TPD. A drug manufacturer can submit an NDS regardless of whether the clinical trials were carried out in Canada. The TPD reviews all the information gathered during the development of the drug and assesses the risks and benefits of the drug. If it is judged that, for a specific patient population and specific conditions of use, the benefits of the drug outweigh the known risks, the HPFB will approve the drug by issuing a notice of compliance. 18 · Scheduling - Most classical psychedelics and synthetic 5HT2A agonists, such as RE104 and molecules in the RE200 series, are psychoactive substances with the potential for abuse. If either of RE104 or the RE200 series of development candidates are approved as drugs, we will need to hold discussions with Health Canada to determine a risk management plan to protect against potential diversion and misuse by patients, as well as to schedule its removal from Category III (no known medical utility) to another category based on data acquired during development and based on the drug's adverse properties, if any, related to potential abuse and addiction. Pharmaceutical Development and Approval Requirements - United States Prescription drugs in the United States are regulated by the FDA, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act ("FDCA") and its implementing regulations. Before a prescription drug product candidate may be marketed in the United States it must undergo extensive research, clinical trials, and manufacturing development, and must be approved by FDA and, as appropriate, scheduled by DEA. The testing and approval process of product candidates requires substantial time, effort, and financial resources. Satisfaction of FDA pre-market approval requirements typically takes many years and the actual time required may vary substantially based upon the type, complexity, and novelty of the product or disease. The process required generally involves: · completion of extensive nonclinical laboratory tests, animal studies and formulation studies, all performed in accordance with the FDA's GLP regulations; · submission to the FDA of an investigational new drug application, which must become effective before human clinical trials in the US may begin; · performance of adequate and well-controlled human clinical trials in accordance with the FDA's regulations, including good clinical practices, to establish the safety and efficacy of the product candidate for each proposed indication; · submission to, and review and approval by, the FDA of a new drug application prior to any commercial marketing, sale or shipment of the drug; and · scheduling in collaboration with the DEA based on the drug's potential for abuse and dependence. Prior to commencing the first clinical trial at a United States site, drug sponsors must complete certain preclinical laboratory and animal evaluations in accordance with GLPs. The results from these studies, together with literature, manufacturing information, analytical data, and prop
