TORONTO, March 3 /CNW/ - Bradmer Pharmaceuticals Inc. (TSX:BMR) ("Bradmer" or the "Corporation") announced today that it intends to complete a private placement of up to 10,526,315 common shares, at a price of $0.095 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation of up to $1,000,000 (the "Offering").
The proceeds of the Offering will be used primarily for working capital and general corporate purposes.

It is anticipated that the closing of the Offering will occur on or before March 26, 2010.
As set out in a news release issued by the TSX on February 5, 2010, the TSX has determined to delist the common shares of Bradmer at the close of market on March 5, 2010 for failure by Bradmer to meet the continued listing requirements of TSX. The TSX has granted an extension of this delisting deadline to March 26, 2010, in order to permit Bradmer to complete the Offering. Application has been made by Bradmer for a listing of its common shares on the NEX Board of the TSX Venture Exchange, such listing to be effective following delisting from the TSX.
The securities offered have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
