VANCOUVER, BC, June 19, 2020 /CNW/ - InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. ("InMed" or the "Company") (TSX: IN) (OTCQX: IMLFF), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing medications targeting diseases with high unmet medical need and leading the way in the clinical development of cannabinol ("CBN"), today announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with a proposed offering of up to US$12 million of common shares (the "Offering"). In connection with the proposed Offering, InMed has also applied to list its common shares on the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq"). The number of shares to be offered and the offering price for the proposed Offering have not yet been determined. The offering is subject to market conditions and approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), and there can be no assurance as to whether or when the offering may be completed, as to the actual size or terms of the offering, or whether the common shares will be accepted for trading on Nasdaq.
In addition to, and in preparation for, this new listing and subject to approval by the TSX, the Company will proceed with a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation share for every thirty-three (33) pre-consolidation shares (the "Consolidation"). The Consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares of the Company being reduced from 172.3 million to approximately 5.23 million on a non-diluted basis, and each shareholder will hold the same percentage of common shares outstanding immediately after the Consolidation as such shareholder held immediately prior to the Consolidation.
The exercise price and number of common shares of the Company issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Consolidation in accordance with the terms of such securities. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Per the requirements of the British Columbia Business Corporations Act, under which the Company is regulated, if fractional shares are to be converted into whole shares, each fractional share remaining after consolidation that is less than 1/2 of a share must be cancelled and each fractional share that is at least 1/2 of a share must be rounded up to one whole share. The Company's name and trading symbol will remain unchanged on the TSX and OTCQX Best Markets as a consequence of the Consolidation. The Company will issue a further news release confirming the effective date for the Consolidation, including the new CUSIP number for its common shares, when such information is available. Letters of transmittal describing the details of the share consolidation will be mailed to InMed's registered shareholders.
A registration statement relating to the common shares to be offered in the Offering has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. Such common shares may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. A copy of the prospectus for the offering may be obtained upon request from: Roth Capital Partners, LLC, 888 San Clemente, Suite 400, Newport Beach, CA 92660, (800) 678-9147 or by accessing the SEC's website, www.sec.gov.
The common shares of the proposed Offering referenced above are not being offered to residents of Canada or persons in Canada. The common shares are being sold on the basis of prospectus exemptions under applicable Canadian securities laws on the basis that the securities will not be distributed back into Canada.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.
