NASDAQ: CORV TSX: CORV
VANCOUVER, Jan. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Correvio Pharma Corp. (NASDAQ: CORV) (TSX: CORV), a revenue-generating, specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing hospital drugs, today announced the completion of sales of all common shares qualified under its ATM Prospectus Supplement (defined below). The Company's at-the-market sales issuance agreement, dated July 10, 2018, between the Company and B.Riley FBR, Inc., as agent, continues in force. However, the Company has no present intention to file a new prospectus supplement to qualify the sale of additional common shares pursuant to the sales agreement.
The common shares were sold by way of a prospectus supplement (the "ATM Prospectus Supplement") to the Company's Canadian final base shelf prospectus and U.S. final base shelf prospectus, filed under a registration statement on Form F-10, each dated July 5, 2018 (together, the "Base Shelf Prospectuses"). The approximately 4.3 million common shares were sold at an average price of US$2.71 per share, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of approximately US$11.5 million. Based on its current operating plan, the Company expects that the net proceeds, combined with its existing cash, provides it with sufficient capital to operate its business through the submission and U.S. Food and Drug Administration review of the Brinavess® new drug application filing. Copies of the ATM prospectus supplements (together with the related Base Shelf Prospectuses) may be obtained from Correvio by submitting a request to Correvio Investor Relations at 1441 Creekside Drive, 6th Floor, Vancouver, BC Canada, V6J 4S7 or under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com or on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale, of the Company's common shares in any jurisdiction in which an offer solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
