“We would like to welcome our new investors to joining our fight in changing the face of cancer globally. We are excited to forge ahead with our expansions plans ensuring cancer patients globally have access to this important treatment.”, says Richard Paxman, CEO
The subscription price per share corresponds to the closing price of the Company’s share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market on 2 February 2021, and has been determined based on negotiations with institutional investors. The Company’s board of directors hence assesses that the subscription price fairly reflects the current market conditions and demand.
The Share Issue was directed to the well reputable institutional investors Creades AB (publ) and Alcur Fonder.

- general corporate purposes and financial redispositions.
