Item 1.0Conclusion of a significant definitive agreement

On August 12, 2022, Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (the “Company”) has entered into a stock distribution agreement (the “Agreement”) with Maxim Group LLC (the “Distribution Agent”) pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell, at any time at any time through the Distribution Agent, in its sole discretion, shares of its common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate offering price of up to reach $5,925,000. The issuance and sale, if any, of common stock by the Company pursuant to the Agreement will be pursuant to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-262402) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and declared effective on February 4, 2022 (the “Registration Statement”), the prospectus supplement relating to the offering filed with the SEC on August 12, 2022, and any applicable supplemental prospectus supplement relating to the offering that forms part of the Registration Statement.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, the Distribution Agent may sell the Common Shares by any method permitted by law as a “market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Distribution Agent will use commercially reasonable efforts within its normal business and sales practices to sell the Common Shares from time to time based on the Company’s instructions (including price, time or size or other customary parameters or conditions that the company may impose). The Company will pay the Distribution Agent a commission of up to three percent (3%) of the gross proceeds from the sale of any Common Shares sold through the Distribution Agent under the Agreement, and has also provided the Distribution Agent with certain indemnification rights. The Company will also reimburse the Distribution Agent for certain specified expenses in connection with entering into the Agreement. The Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and the terms of sale of the Ordinary Shares thereunder.

Under the terms of the Agreement, in no event will the Company issue or sell through the Distribution Agent a number or dollar amount of Ordinary Shares which (i) exceeds the number or amount in dollars of Common Shares registered and available on the Registration Statement, (ii) exceed the number of common shares authorized but not issued, (iii) exceed the number or dollar amount of common shares authorized to be sold in under Form S-3 (including Companion Instruction IB6 therein, if any), or (iv) exceed the number or dollar amount of Common Shares for which the Company has filed a Prospectus Supplement to the registration statement.

The Company is not obligated to effect sales of Ordinary Shares under the Agreement. The offering of Common Stock under the Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all Common Stock subject to the Agreement or (ii) the termination of the Agreement in accordance with its terms.
