                              LIMITLESS EARTH PLC 
 
                        ("Limitless" or the "Company") 
 
                     Chronix Biomedical Investment Update 
 
Limitless Earth plc, an AIM quoted investing company, provides an update in 
relation to Chronix Biomedical ("Chronix"), a molecular diagnostics company 
designing laboratory developed tests for cancer and organ transplants and 
investee company of Limitless. 
 
The Company has been advised that Chronix has entered into an agreement with 
Oncocyte Corporation Inc. ("Oncocyte"), a listed US based molecular diagnostics 
company, for its acquisition for cash, equity and a future revenue share 
consideration.  The agreement, which is subject to a number of conditions, has 
been approved by Chronix shareholders and is expected to be completed by 30 
April 2021 ("Completion"). 
 
As part of the acquisition, Oncocyte will acquire the intellectual property and 
technology for Chronix's TheraSureT-CNI Monitor, a patented, blood-based test 
for immune-therapy monitoring, as well as the intellectual property for 
Chronix's organ transplant technology. It is expected that Chronix's 
development and its business team will become part of the Oncocyte R&D Team and 
will maintain lab operations in Germany to support the continued development 
and commercial launch of the monitoring tests. 
 
Upon Completion, consideration for the merger will comprise $2.675 million in 
cash and $1.5 million of Oncocyte common stock (or approximately 295,000 
shares) and Oncocyte will assume liabilities not to exceed $5.5 million. The 
agreement also provides for Oncocyte to pay a revenue share on the net 
collected revenues for certain tests and services for specific periods, and to 
pay a combination of cash or Oncocyte common stock of up to $14 million if 
certain milestones are achieved. Net acquisition proceeds and any milestone 
revenue receipts are expected to be returned to Chronix's shareholders based on 
the order of the investment rounds in which they invested. 
 
Limitless holds 0.72 per cent. of Chronix's issued share capital on a fully 
diluted basis. Limitless also previously announced on 20 September 2019 a 
further investment of $100,000 by way of an unsecured Convertible Promissory 
Note ("Note") with an interest rate of six percent per annum. The merger will 
not trigger the conversion of the Note, and the Company expects that the Note 
will be repaid in full following Completion. 
 
A further announcement will be made in due course.
