Subsequent to quarter-end, we strengthened our balance sheet through the completion of a convertible debenture offering, the net proceeds from which will be used for investments in leasehold improvements and equipment, clinical studies, product development and general working capital requirements.”
Since the start of July, IGX shares have fallen -19%, trading at $1.00 (78¢ US) apiece before the market closed yesterday.
