TORONTO, Ontario (November 3, 2020) – PharmaCielo Ltd. (“PharmaCielo” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PCLO, OTCQX: PCLOF) is pleased to announce that, due to high demand, it has increased the size of its previously announced private placement offering from $5.0 million to $10.0 million (the “Upsized Offering”). Pursuant to the Upsized Offering, the Company will issue 20,000,000 units (“Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.50 per Unit.
Each Unit will be comprised of (i) one common share (a “Common Share”) of the Company; and (ii) one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.65 for a period of 24 months.
“The immediate market demand for this issue has been very positive and is a clear statement of confidence in the continued progress of PharmaCielo,” said David Attard, CEO.
Closing of the Upsized Offering is expected to occur on or about November 20, 2020 (the “Closing Date”). Closing of the Upsized Offering is subject to regulatory approval including that of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”).
The Units will be offered by way of private placement in Ontario and such other provinces and territories of Canada and may be offered in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “US Securities Act”), and applicable state securities laws, and certain other jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the Units in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
