Lattice Biologics Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: LBL) (OTCBB: BLVKF) ("Lattice Biologics" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously announced (September 13, 2016) non-brokered private placement of Units from US$750,000 to US$1,500,000 (the "Private Placement") due to investor demand. The Company has also extended the Private Placement for a period of 30 days.
In a show of continued investor confidence, Lattice Biologics has closed the third tranche of the Private Placement of Units of the Company (the "Units"). The Company issued 2,556,235 Units at a price of Can$0.20 per Unit, representing aggregate gross proceeds of US$390,000.
Each "Unit" consists of one common share in the capital stock of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is exercisable into an additional common share at a price of Can$0.265 per share for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
The common shares to be issued, and any common shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants will be subject to a hold period expiring on February 25, 2017.
Lattice Biologics has received conditional approval for the Private Placement from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV").
This latest tranche brings the total investor funding raised as part of this Private Placement (including amounts announced on September 15, 2016 and October 18, 2016) to US$690,000.
Net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for general working capital, including production of Lattice Biologics' newly launched amniotic fluid for regenerative use, AmnioVisc™, introduced on October 11, 2016, as well as the Company's other recently announced products -- such as the Schulman Cortical Bone Pin for podiatry applications -- and support for its personalized chemotherapy diagnostic service trial for cancer patients.
