Trading of Consolidated Shares on TSX Expected to Begin on July 3rd, 2020
VANCOUVER, BC, June 30, 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"), is pleased to announce, further to its press release dated June 19th, 2020, that in conjunction with its application to list its common shares on the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq"), the Company has completed the consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of thirty-three (33) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share (the "Consolidation").
Subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), the Company's common shares are expected to commence trading on a post-consolidated basis on the TSX (ticker symbol: IN) on July 3rd, 2020 and, due to the observation on July 3, 2020 of the US Independence Day, trading on the OTCQX Best Market (ticker symbol: IMLFF) beginning July 6th, 2020 under the same trading symbols and with new CUSIP number 457637502 and ISIN number CA4576375022.
The Consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding common shares of the Company being reduced from 172.3 million to approximately 5.22 million on a non-diluted basis. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Each fractional share remaining after consolidation that is less than 1/2 of a share will be cancelled and each fractional share that is at least 1/2 of a share will be rounded up to one whole share. Each shareholder will hold the same percentage of common shares outstanding immediately after the Consolidation as such shareholder held immediately prior to the Consolidation.
Registered shareholders holding physical share certificates will receive by mail a letter of transmittal advising of the Consolidation and containing instructions. Holders of common shares of the Company who hold uncertificated common shares (i.e., common shares held in book-entry form and not represented by a physical share certificate), either as registered holders or beneficial owners, will have their existing book-entry account(s) electronically adjusted by the Company's transfer agent or, for beneficial shareholders, by their brokerage firms, banks, trusts or other nominees that hold in "street name" for their benefit. Such holders do not need to take any additional actions to exchange their pre-Consolidation common shares for post-Consolidation common shares.
