InMed Pharmaceuticals Announces $5 Million Registered Direct and Private Placement Offerings Priced At-The-Market Under Nasdaq Rules
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“InMed” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INM), a leader in the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of rare cannabinoids, today announced that it has entered into securities purchase agreements with a single healthcare-focused institutional investor for the issuance and sale of 4,079,256 of its common shares at a purchase price of $0.858 per share (or pre-funded warrant in lieu thereof) in a registered direct offering priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules. In a concurrent private placement, InMed has also agreed to issue and sell to the investor 1,748,250 common shares (or pre-funded warrant in lieu thereto) at the same purchase price as in the registered direct offering. In addition, the Company has agreed to issue to the investor in the offerings unregistered preferred investment options (the “investment options”) to purchase up to an aggregate of 5,827,506 common shares. The aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of both offerings are expected to be approximately $5 million. The offerings are expected to close on or about June 6, 2022, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offerings to continue pipeline development, advance commercial activities and for general working capital purposes.
H.C. Wainwright & Co. is acting as the exclusive placement agent for the offerings.
The unregistered investment options to be issued in the offerings will be exercisable immediately upon issuance at an exercise price of $0.74 per share and will expire six and one-half years from the date of issuance.
The Company also has agreed that certain existing warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 4,480,771 common shares of the Company that were previously issued to the investor, with exercise prices ranging from $2.848 to $5.11 per share and expiration dates ranging from July 2, 2026 to November 16, 2026, will be amended effective upon the closing of the registered direct offering so that the amended warrants will have a reduced exercise price of $0.74 per share, will not be exercisable until six months following the closing of the registered direct offering and will expire seven years following the closing of the registered direct offering.
The common shares, pre-funded warrants and common shares underlying the pre-funded warrants (but excluding the common shares and pre-funded warrants sold in the private placement and the investment options and the common shares underlying the investment options sold in the offerings) are being offered and sold by InMed pursuant to a “shelf” registration statement on Form S-3 (333-262532), including a base prospectus, previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 4, 2022 and declared effective by the SEC on February 11, 2022. The offering of the common shares and the pre-funded warrants to be issued in the registered direct offering are being made only by means of a prospectus supplement that forms a part of the registration statement. A final prospectus supplement and an accompanying base prospectus relating to the registered direct offering will be filed with the SEC and will be available at the SEC’s website located at http://www.sec.gov. Electronic copies of the prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus may also be obtained from H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC at 430 Park Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, New York 10022, by phone at (212) 856-5711 or e-mail at email@example.com.
The unregistered common shares, pre-funded warrants and investment options sold in the offerings described above were offered in a private placement under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) and Regulation D promulgated thereunder and, along with the common shares underlying the pre-funded warrants and investment options, have not been registered under the Act or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the common shares, the pre-funded warrants, the investment options and the common shares underlying the pre-funded warrants and investment options may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the SEC or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements. The securities were offered only to an accredited investor. Pursuant to a registration rights agreement with the investor, the Company has agreed to file one or more registration statements with the SEC covering the resale of the unregistered common shares and the shares issuable upon exercise of the unregistered pre-funded warrants and investment options.
