LOS ANGELES, California and SAN DIEGO, California – (NewMediaWire) – August 26, 2020 – Reign
Resources Corporation (“Reign”) (OTC: RGNPD) and Sigyn Therapeutics, Inc.
(“Sigyn”), a privately held medical technology company focused on the treatment
of life-threatening inflammatory conditions, today announced that the companies
have entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Reign will acquire
all of the outstanding capital stock of Sigyn in exchange for shares of Reign
common stock representing approximately 75 percent of Reign’s outstanding
common stock. Upon completion of the merger transaction, Reign will be renamed
Sigyn Therapeutics, Inc. and will be led by Sigyn co-founder Jim Joyce, who
will serve as Chairman and CEO of the combined company. Additional
announcements regarding the combined company’s management structure, Board of
Directors and Science Advisory Board will be forthcoming.

Upon completion of the merger,
Sigyn Therapeutics will be focused on addressing a significant unmet need in
global health; the treatment of life-threatening inflammatory conditions that
are precipitated by Cytokine Storm Syndrome (“The Cytokine Storm” or “CSS”) and
not addressed with an approved therapy. The annual market opportunity for a
therapeutic strategy to prevent or mitigate CSS has been reported to exceed $20
billion.

Sigyn Therapy™ is a
development-stage blood purification technology designed to overcome the
limitations of previous drugs and devices to treat life-threatening
inflammatory conditions, including sepsis, which is the #1 cause of hospital
deaths.  The mechanism of Sigyn Therapy allows for a broad-spectrum of
inflammatory targets to be depleted from the bloodstream.  Among the
targets are inflammatory cytokines, cytokine aggregates, endotoxin and
CytoVesicles that transport cytokines and other inflammatory cargos.

Beyond sepsis, Cytokine Storm
related therapeutic opportunities include, but are not limited to virus induced
Cytokine Storm (a leading cause of COVID-19 deaths), bacteria induced Cytokine
Storm, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute forms of liver
failure, including hepatic encephalopathy.  Sigyn Therapy may also be a
candidate to stabilize or extend the life of patients waiting for the
identification of a matched liver for transplantation.  In such a
scenario, Sigyn Therapy™ would serve as a bridge-to-liver transplant. Cytokine
Storm Syndrome can also result from trauma, severe burns, acute pancreatitis,
adverse drug reactions, cancer immunotherapies, cancer cachexia, acute kidney
injury (AKI) and severe pneumonia.

Other Corporate Highlights

–       
Sigyn’s co-founders have 50+ years of experience in the medical technology
field and played instrumental roles in the development of three technologies
that have been cleared by the FDA to treat COVID-19 infected individuals.

–       
Jim Joyce, the Chairman and CEO of Sigyn Therapeutics, has two decades of
public company CEO and Board leadership experience.  Specific to
therapeutic blood purification, Mr. Joyce was the founder, Chairman and CEO of
Aethlon Medical, a company that he navigated from a single shareholder start-up
to Nasdaq-traded Company with 8000+ shareholders.

–       
Sigyn Therapy aligns with U.S. government initiatives to support broad-spectrum
treatment countermeasures that mitigate life-threatening conditions resulting
from pandemic outbreaks such as COVID-19.

–       
A deep pipeline of pre-clinical, clinical and regulatory milestones are planned
over the next 12-18 months.
