Vancouver, Canada-based Neovasc entered into definitive agreements with “certain healthcare-focused institutional investors,” according to a news release, for the offering that is expected to close on Aug. 12, according to a news release.
The offering includes an aggregate of more than 4.5 million shares of common stock at a purchase price of $2.77575 per share under the Nasdaq rules, totaling the $12.6 million Neovasc expects before deducting placement agents’ fees and the estimated expenses.
