TORONTO, March 9, 2021 /CNW/ — Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (NEO: MMED, OTCQB: MMEDF, DE: MMQ) (“MindMed” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal private placement offering (the “Offering”). In connection with the Offering, the Company issued 6.0 million units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price per Unit of CAD $3.25 (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of CAD $19.5 million. The Offering was conducted by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the “Underwriter”) pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated March 9, 2021 between the Company and the Underwriter.
MindMed is a leading psychedelic medicine biotech company that discovers, develops and deploys psychedelic inspired medicines and experiential therapies to address addiction and mental illness. Following the closing of the Offering, the Corporation’s cash on hand has increased to CAD $205.2 million (USD $162.0 million). Since the founding of Mind Medicine, Inc. in May 2019, MindMed has now raised a total of approximately CAD $256.7 million (USD $202.7 million) in investment capital before fundraising and deal expenses, making it one of the leaders in the psychedelic medicine industry in its ability to finance its innovative R&D, a new digital therapeutics division and a growing clinical trial pipeline.
MindMed Co-Founder & CEO, J.R. Rahn said, “As we march forward with our uplisting plans for Nasdaq and the overall advancement of the MindMed portfolio, we saw it as a timely opportunity to bring in a strategic investor to support MindMed’s future growth initiatives. In the years ahead, I believe MindMed will be viewed as much as a digital medicine platform as it is a pharmaceutical drug development company.”
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for further investment in Project Lucy (experiential LSD), the Microdose LSD Program and Project Albert, which is now integrating MindMed’s most recent technology acquisition, HealthMode, to build a comprehensive mental health platform to deploy psychedelics medicines, and for general working capital purposes.
