MGC Pharmaceuticals has completed the consolidation of its total issued capital on a 1:1,000 basis following shareholder approval along with the settlement of a US$7.9 million share placement announced last week.

Managing director and CEO Roby Zomer said: “I am delighted to announce that the company has successfully concluded its full capital restructuring and refinancing, thanks to the backing of a number of strategic, high net-worth investors from the US and Europe.

“These individuals fully understand the company’s long-term potential and are committed to supporting its operations, execution of the business plan to maximise the MGC Pharma enterprise value and shareholder returns. 

“As of today, our company is now fully funded and well-positioned to proceed with the execution of its pharmaceutical work plan for 2024.”

In September, the firm flagged a restructure in a bid to secure its future in the face of “dire alternatives”.
