KIRKLAND, QC, Oct. 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Ortho Regenerative Technologies Inc. (CSE: ORTH.CN) ("Ortho RTi" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has issued a total of 1,810,000 units (the "Units") pursuant to its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"). The Units were sold at price per Unit of $0.50, for total gross proceeds to the Corporation of $905,000.
Each Unit issued pursuant to the Private Placement consists of one Class "A" common share of the Corporation (the "Share") and one-half (½) of one non-transferable Share purchase warrant (each whole Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") of the Corporation. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.70 per Share at any time on or before the close of business on a date that is eighteen (18) months from the Closing Date (as hereinafter defined). If, during the eighteen (18) months after the Closing Date, the Corporation's weighted average Share price for 30 consecutive trading days equals or exceeds $1.00, the Corporation may give notice to the Warrant holders that they must exercise their remaining Warrants within a period of 30-days from the date of receipt of the notice.
"In total, OrthoRTi has now raised approximately $2,7 million in recent financings," said Ortho RTi's Executive Chairman and CEO, Dr. Brent Norton. "This, combined with the operational and other changes that we have made to improve our overall cost structure, positions us well to expediently move towards achieving our goals of creating a best-in-class product and moving it into the clinic."
The Corporation paid cash commissions of $30,000 and issued 60,000 non-transferable share purchase warrants (the "Finder Warrants") to registered dealers who acted as finders. The Finder Warrants are subject to the same terms and conditions as the Warrants.
The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to fund research and development costs and for general corporate purposes of the Corporation.
