“The closing of this public offering is a key milestone for the company, enabling us to further progress with our plan to commercialize C-Scan, which we believe to be an innovative, patient friendly and compelling alternative for pre-cancerous polyps screening in the colon. We look forward to executing the plan and providing timely updates,” CEO Alex Ovadia said in a prepared statement.
Last month, Check-Cap said it initiated a 1-for-12 reverse stock split as it looked to regain compliance with the NASDAQ stock market’s minimum bid pricing requirement.
