AdAlta is delighted to offer Eligible Shareholders the opportunity to participate in our on-renounceable rights offer (Offer or Entitlement Offer), as announced to the ASX on Tuesday, August 11.
The Offer allows Eligible Shareholders to acquire one (1) new share for every four (4) shares held at 7.00pm (AEDT) on 14 August 2020 (Record Date) at a price of $0.10 per share to raise up to $4.1 million before costs.
The Offer is being conducted in conjunction with a Placement announced on 11 August 2020 which raised $4 million (Placement) to raise a total of up to $8.1 million.
This capital raising comes at a time when AdAlta is making significant progress with the clinical development of its lead candidate, AD-214, with Phase 1 clinical trials commencing in June and the first participants successfully treated in July.
AdAlta Chair, Dr Paul MacLeman commented: “Commencing clinical trials of lead product candidate, AD-214, is a key validation of our i-body platform and provides the catalyst to progress the growth strategy we outlined earlier this year. We are grateful for, and encouraged by, the support received from our major shareholders and new investors during the Placement. We are pleased to now enable all our existing shareholders the opportunity to maintain or increase their investment through the Offer as we work to realise the full potential of AD-214, our pipeline and the i-body platform.”

The Offer will include a Top-Up Facility enabling Eligible Shareholders to apply for Additional Shares (shares not subscribed for by other Eligible Shareholders) and a Shortfall Facility enabling the Directors the discretion to place any shares not taken up by Eligible Shareholders under the Entitlement Offer or allocated under the Top-Up Facility for a period of three months from the close of the Offer at a price no less than the Offer price.
