AquaBounty Technologies, Inc.

Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017

MAYNARD, Massachusetts, May 9, 2017 - AquaBounty Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AQB; AIM: ABTU) ("AquaBounty" or the "Company"), a biotechnology company focused on enhancing productivity in the aquaculture market and a majority-owned subsidiary of Intrexon Corporation (NYSE: XON), announces the Company's financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Financial and Operational Summary:

   --     Completed a US$25.0 million equity subscription with Intrexon Corporation 

-- Implemented a 1-for-30 reverse share split and completed the listing of the Company's common shares on the NASDAQ Capital Market

-- Continued to progress the Company's renovation plans at Rollo Bay and submitted a follow-on request to authorities to construct a broodstock facility and a grow-out facility on the site

   --     Seeking shareholder approval to de-list the Company's common shares from trading on AIM 

Ronald Stotish, Chief Executive Officer of AquaBounty, stated: "We are pleased by the progress we've made during the first quarter on our 2017 goals. We completed the listing of our common shares on the NASDAQ Capital Market, aided by the infusion of $25.0 million in new equity from Intrexon. This has allowed us to continue with, and expand upon, our plans to renovate the former Atlantic Sea Smolt plant in Rollo Bay on Prince Edward Island. We have submitted an application to the provincial regulatory authorities for the construction of a broodstock facility to house our non-transgenic Atlantic salmon stock and a 250 metric ton recirculating aquaculture system ("RAS") facility to grow out our AquAdvantage(R) Salmon. We see this as the first step in our commercialization plan. We are also continuing to search for sites to establish our first RAS grow-out facility in the United States, and we expect to complete this process this year."
