VANCOUVER, BC, March 15, 2022 /CNW/ – Nova Mentis Life Science Corp. (CSE: NOVA) (FSE: HN3Q) (OTCQB: NMLSF) (“NOVA” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company and global leader in first-in-class psilocybin-based therapeutics and complementary diagnostics for neuroinflammatory disorders, is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered private placement financing for total gross proceeds of $1,483,500 (the “Placement”).
The Company has issued 29,670,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of CAD $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of eighteen months at a price of CAD $0.075 per share.
The Company will use the proceeds from the Placement towards the launch of its autism spectrum disorder (ASD) North America Observational Study, Health Canada Phase 2A fragile X syndrome (FXS) clinical study and general working capital. All securities issued under the Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
“On behalf of our management and scientific leadership team, we want to thank our shareholders for investing in our vision and supporting NOVA’s research and drug development work. We are proud of the progress we have been able to achieve and look forward to the launch of our FXS human clinical trials,” says Will Rascan, NOVA’s CEO & President.
“We are very encouraged by the positive results of NOVA’s preclinical studies which confirmed the potential application of the Company’s psilocybin microdose formulation(s) in the treatment of ASD and FXS,” stated Dr. Marvin S. Hausman MD, Chairman of NOVA’s Scientific Advisory Board. “We are finalizing the Health Canada application for a phase 2A clinical study of psilocybin for the treatment of FXS, with plans to submit applications for similar studies in the U.S. and Europe later this year. The continued support from NOVA’s shareholders and the investment community helps accelerate our efforts as we proceed on the pathway to drug approval and commercialization.”
A portion of the Placement constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) adopted in the Policy. The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation in the Placement.
