Trimel Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX:TRL) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that in connection with its previously announced public offering, it has entered into an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by RBC Dominion Securities Inc. and including GMP Securities L.P. (collectively, the "Underwriters") to sell 7,569,000 units ("Units") of the Corporation at a price of $1.75 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $13,245,750. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $2.50 until the date which is 30 months after closing of the offering. All of the Units will be issued by the Company and there will no longer be a secondary offering as previously announced.
The Company has also granted the Underwriters an option to cover over-allotments and for market stabilization purposes (the "Over Allotment Option"), which will allow the Underwriter to purchase up to an additional 1,135,350 Units. The Over Allotment Option may be exercised at any time up to 30 days after the closing of the offering.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of Units to pay for the costs of the clinical trials for its CompleoTRT™ and Tefina™ products and for general corporate purposes.
The Company will file an amended and restated preliminary prospectus in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Quebec, to reflect the announced offering terms. Such prospectus will be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The offering is expected to close on or about July 17, 2012 and is subject to certain customary conditions and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
