Use of funds

Funds raised under the placement and associated Share Purchase Plan (SPP) will be used to finance activities related to the Company’s accelerated US market expansion. The market expansion will follow the expected FDA approval to market TechnegasTM.

In particular, the Company will utilise funds to build-up its TechnegasTM Generators assets. These assets would be used as part of the US rollout strategy using CYC’s new Service Model.

CYC notified that the capital raising would support rapid US commercialisation following the FDA approval. The FDA is anticipated to approve TechnegasTM in the second quarter of 2021.

Besides, these funds will support other strategic priorities, including:

  • Expansion of the use of TechnegasTM beyond the pulmonary embolism market such as COPD and Asthma.
  • Ongoing R&D activities.
  • Enhancement of product and systems.
  • Working capital
  • Some of the funds will be utilised to pay the costs of the offer.

Cyclopharm also notified that the US sales strategy would involve the generators’ placement without any capital cost to customers. Further, this will support rapid penetration in the US market, focusing on obtaining high margin recurring consumable revenue.
