TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (NEO: MMED) (OTCQB: MMEDF) (DE: MMQ) ("MindMed" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its previously announced offering (the "Offering") on December 14 and December 15, 2020, it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus (the "Preliminary Prospectus") with the securities commissions or similar authorities in each province of Canada, other than Québec. Pursuant to the underwriting agreement among the Company, Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Lead Underwriter") and Eight Capital (together with the Lead Underwriter, the "Underwriters"), the Underwriters have agreed to purchase 18,200,000 units of the Company (the "Units"), on a "bought deal" basis, at a price per Unit of CAD$4.40 (the "Issue Price") for gross proceeds of CAD$80,080,000.
The Company has also granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Units at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering. If this option is exercised in full, an additional CAD$12,012,000 will be raised pursuant to the Offering and the aggregate proceeds of the Offering will be approximately CAD$92,092,000.
Each Unit will be comprised of one subordinate voting share of the Company (a "Subordinate Voting Share") and one-half of one Subordinate Voting Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Subordinate Voting Share at an exercise price of CAD$5.75, for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering. If, at any time following the closing of the Offering, the daily volume weighted average trading price of the Subordinate Voting Shares on the NEO Exchange Inc. is greater than $9.00 per Subordinate Voting Share for the preceding 5 consecutive trading days, the Company may, upon providing written notice to the holders of Warrants, accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is at least 30 days following the date of such written notice.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for investment in its digital medicine division, for further investments in its experiential therapy program for anxiety disorders ("Project Lucy"), its development of a non-hallucinogenic version of the psychedelic ibogaine to address the opioid crisis ("Project Layla"), and its LSD micro-dosing trials for adult ADHD, as well as for general working capital and corporate purposes.
The Offering is scheduled to close on or about January 5, 2020 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Neo Exchange Inc. and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
