TORONTO, Feb. 6, 2020 – – Canntab Therapeutics Limited (CSE:PILL.CN)(OTCQB:CTABF) (FRA:TBF1.F) (the “Company” or “Canntab“), the leading innovator in cannabinoid and terpene blends in hard pill form for therapeutic application, is pleased to announce that it is launching a private placement (the “Private Placement“) of up to $2.5 million of units (“Units“), subject to the Company’s over-allotment option to increase the size of the Private Placement by up to an additional $1.5 million, at a price of $0.50 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share and one full warrant to acquire an additional common share at a price of $0.75 per share for a period of two years. Canntab expects to close the Private Placement on or before February 20th, 2020.
The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for:
- Canntab’s expansion through its wholly owned US subsidiary Canntab USA, Inc. into the State of Florida jointly with Exactus Inc. for the manufacture of a CBD hard pill (non-THC) in formulations for sale and distribution across the United States.
- A trial with the University of British Columbia to research the effect of opioid sparing high formulation with Canntab’s bi-layered CBD/THC controlled release formulations for post-operative pain care.
- Clinical 3-way crossover blood level study to further the Company’s research of its solid oral dose formulations, including extended release, immediate release, and multi-particulate formulations.
- Expansion of the Company’s facility in Markham, Ontario Canada.
- Chemistry analysis and third-party testing of products for New Cannabis Product applications for Health Canada.
- Manufacturing inputs needed to build inventory of products for sale and distribution.
- General working capital purposes.
“We accomplished the goals that we set out for ourselves almost 2 years ago, and we are now at the doorstep for the full-scale manufacturing and distribution of our innovative medical cannabis solutions. The proceeds from this private placement will strengthen our balance sheet (which remains without any long term debt) and will allow us to take advantage of the opportunities we’ve cultivated, and will establish Canntab as the premiere solution for medical cannabis in Canada, and across the world”, said Jeffrey Renwick, CEO of Canntab.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company may pay finder fees of up to 7% of the gross proceeds and issue finder warrants of up to 7% of the Units sold, and each being exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.50 for a period of two years.
About Canntab Therapeutics
On December 23rd, Health Canada confirmed receipt of Canntab’s Site Evidence Package, to begin the final process for Canntab to obtain LP Status for its Markham, Ontario Facility.
Canntab Therapeutics Ltd. is a Canadian company with operations in Canada and shortly also in the United States. Upon our receipt of LP Status from Health Canada, Canntab will begin full-scale manufacturing of its suite of precision oral dose products that are unavailable elsewhere in the marketplace, namely, formulations in multiple doses and time release combinations. Canntab has established a wholly owned American subsidiary which will operate Canntab’s manufacturing and distribution business in the United States. Canntab’s proprietary hard pill medical cannabis formulations will provide doctors, patients and consumers with medical grade solutions which incorporate all the features one would expect from any prescription or over the counter medication sold in Canadian pharmacies.
Additionally, Canntab has applied for its Cannabis Research Licence in Canada. The research licence will likely be acquired before Canntab obtains Licensed Producer status and will allow Canntab to receive oil, and to begin preparing product submissions to Health Canada, and to purchase machines for full scale manufacturing.
Canntab trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the symbol PILL, on the OTCQB under the symbol CTABF, and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol TBF1.
