TORONTO and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProMIS Neurosciences, Inc. (TSX: PMN) (OTCQB: ARFXF) (the “Company”), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of antibody therapeutics targeting toxic oligomers implicated in the development of neurodegenerative diseases, is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus (the “Shelf Prospectus”) with the securities regulators in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, except Quebec.
The Shelf Prospectus, when made final, will allow the Company to make offerings of common shares, warrants, units, debt securities, subscription receipts, convertible securities or any combination thereof for up to an aggregate total of US$50 million during the 25-month period that the Shelf Prospectus is effective. If any securities are offered under the Shelf Prospectus, when made final, the terms of any such securities and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting from such offering would be established at the time of any offering and would be described in a prospectus supplement filed with the applicable Canadian securities regulators at the time of such an offering.
The Company has filed the Shelf Prospectus with the intention that once a receipt has been provided for a final short form base shelf prospectus, it will provide the Company with greater financial flexibility going forward. The Company, however, has not entered into any agreements or arrangements to authorize or offer any securities at this time. The Company ultimately may never issue any securities under this prospectus. The terms of any future securities offer will be made subject to applicable securities laws.
A copy of the Shelf Prospectus can be found under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
