    Healthcare Real Estate Fund 1 SP – to acquire and develop co-working
    space and incubator facilities for the life sciences sector in the
    United States;

Aeneas Capital Limited (“ACL”) and Pyrinas Real Estate Management
Limited (“Pyrinas”), based in Hong Kong, is launching a US$120m
innovative closed-ended property fund – Pyrinas US Healthcare Real
Estate Fund 1 SP – with a geographical focus on selected cities across
North America. Supported by the ecosystem of its affiliated company,
Aptorum Group (Nasdaq: APM), the fund’s key investment objective is to
acquire and redevelop real estate into shared laboratories and incubator
facilities for life science sector start-ups, one of the most vibrant
sectors in North America. The fund will focus its investments in
primarily four North America mandated cities (namely Cambridge, Boston,
Houston, and San Francisco in the United States and Toronto in Canada).


Mr. Matthew Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Pyrinas, commented,
“These cities have been selected in view of several crucial factors that
we believe are best positioned to take advantage of the robust growth in
the life science industry. The fund will focus on acquisition and
development of real estate suitable for the healthcare and life science
sector, particularly in operating laboratories with a co-working space
model. We are seeing increasingly robust demand for space by life
science companies and start-ups, who are encouraged by the rapidly
growing venture capital investment market in North America.”

The fund is targeting a launch size of up to US$120 million with a
targeted return of 15-19% per annum (Net IRR) over a period of four
years with one-year extension. Pyrinas is currently in discussions with
a number of institutional investors and collaborative partners.

Together with its affiliated company Aptorum Group Limited (Nasdaq: APM)
and Aeneas Capital, the fund also aims to nurture medical research, the
development of intellectual property, and collaboration between
scientists, researchers, investors, and industry participants; while
providing real estate solutions that foster an ecosystem for collegial
interactions among industry, investors, government and academia.
