About publication of circulars Bioasis Proposed Acquisition, US$9.6 Million Equity Raise, Name Change and Notice of Shareholders Meeting
Abingdon, UK / Accesswire / 6 January 2023 / Midatech Pharma PLC (AIM:MTPH.L) (Nasdaq:MTP), a drug delivery technology company focused on improving the biodelivery and biodistribution of pharmaceuticals, announced on December 13 and December 19, 2022 In addition to the company’s announcement, a circular (“Circular”) and a shareholder meeting notice were posted to shareholders yesterday.
The notice contains the following details: Above allthe Company’s proposed acquisition of Bioasis Technologies Inc. (“Bioasis”), a US$9.6 million equity raising, and a name change. Above all, approval by the shareholders at the shareholders’ meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to read the entire circular, including the risk factors described in Part 2.
The General Assembly was convened at 10:00 am (GMT) on January 23, 2023 at the Company’s offices at 1 Caspian Point, Caspian Way, Cardiff CF10 4DQ. Although the Company holds its general meeting of shareholders in its office, there may be times when a shareholder does not wish to attend the general meeting of shareholders in person and instead wishes to be represented by the chairman of the general meeting of shareholders. Details on how to vote by proxy can be found in the Notice of General Meeting.
These documents are also available in the “Investors” section of the Company’s website at https://www.midatechpharma.com/investors/shareholder-information.
Shareholders should be aware that if the resolution is not approved at the shareholders’ meeting, the Proposal will not be made and no net proceeds from the private placement will be received by the Company. Should this occur, Midatech Group will only have sufficient working capital to conduct the transaction until around mid-March 2023, barring substantial licensing fees and/or additional funding.
Therefore, if the Private Placement is not expected to be completed, the Company urgently needs another source of funding. There is no assurance that we will be able to find alternative sources of potential funding. This may or may not be on similar commercial terms and may not be obtained in a timely manner or at all. If we are unable to proceed with the private placement, we may not be able to continue to develop and commercialize our assets and may not continue as a going concern. If alternative potential sources of funding are not available, the Directors believe that the Company will likely be forced to administer.
Existing shareholders are therefore encouraged to vote in favor of the proposal as it is intended for directors to do with respect to their shareholdings at the time of the shareholders’ meeting.
Capitalized terms not defined in this announcement have the same meaning as defined in the Circular.
