Nanosphere Announces $2.25 Million Financing for Rapid Expansion of Cannabis Product Line
DENVER (November 16, 2018)– NanoSphere Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: NSHS) (OTC: NSHSF) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to CAD $2,250,000. The proceeds will be used to expand our award-winning Evolve Formulas cannabis products into more markets in the US, Canada, and outside of North America. Funds will also be used to develop new products, increase production in the states that Evolve Products are available in, as well as for general working capital.
“We only received our worldwide patent for our cannabis delivery system in June this year, and already the Company is expanding into the US with our Evolve Formulas brand,” said Nanosphere CEO Robert Sutton. “We’re now in the favourable position of financing that expansion so we can quickly drive increased revenues.”
Nanosphere has developed and patented a radically improved delivery system for cannabinoids that allows for precise dosage, faster onset of therapeutic effects, and exponentially higher bioavailability.
Nanosphere announced on November 8, 2018 the formation of a wholly owned subsidiary, Nanosphere Cannabis International Inc. (NCI), which is tasked with licensing Nanosphere’s ground-breaking technology in countries outside the United States where medical and/or recreational cannabis is legal.
“We are already seeing strong demand for our Evolve products in several countries where cannabis is legal, such as Germany and Canada, but also in countries where legalization is currently underway,” said NCI President Gary Symons. “We expect our growth internationally will be just as rapid as we’ve already seen in the United States.”
The Company is also releasing two new product lines, those being an intraoral cannabis product and an intranasal cannabis spray that can replace the need to smoke or vape cannabis. Both have applications in the medical and recreational cannabis markets.
The private placement will consist of $0.35 units, with each unit comprised of a common share and a full purchase warrant exercisable to purchase a further common share at a price of $0.50 cents for a period of 24 months, subject to accelerated expiry if the company’s shares trade at or above $0.75 for 15 consecutive days. The Company may pay certain finder fees in connection with the financing, subject to the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Company further announces it has granted 500,000 stock options to consultants exercisable at a price of $0.52 per share, and that it will issue 206,330 common shares in exchange for media relations and other consulting services at an average price of $0.36 per share. All securities issuances are subject to the approval of the Exchange, and will have a four month statutory hold period from the date of issuance.For more information on Nanosphere Health Sciences, Inc. or to schedule an interview, please contact Gabrielle Wesseldyk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-255-0945.
