The company’s new KT009 development program is well defined and aims within three years for a clinical study. Medigard foresees further capital raisings to fund KT009 program. The company envisages raising capital in the near term as Medigard has limited cash on hand and a convertible note obligation. The finalisation of the convertible note is presently under discussion.
The company is considering a range of alternatives at this stage. In the near term the company will need to raise further capital and further capital in tranches to fund the KT009 Development Program and corporate costs. Through some combination of placement under the existing capacity funds can be raised to issue further shares, a share purchase plan or further placements subject to shareholder approval.
To raise around $800,000 placement under the existing capacity would enable Medigard, depending upon the then present share price and the actual discount offered. Well supported by shareholders Medigard conducted a SPP in December 2017. A further share purchase plan would enable existing shareholders to purchase shares at a discount, with the KT009 program in hand, to the then present share price and participate in a capital raising.
Estimated to be at around $15 million if the program is taken into larger Phase II trials with GMP KT009 activities for further stages of the KT009 program will require further funding. With experience in the Life Sciences/Biotechnology sectors the company is seeking to engage with a Share Broker and the recent positive view on the KT009 program is likely to support this endeavour. However, at this time it should be stressed that no fund activities have been initiated so far at this time.
