The company said its current cash position will enable it to continue to advance its clinical trial pipeline of psychedelic-inspired medicines and experiential therapies.
The October bought-deal equity financing saw the company issue 23,810,000 shares at a price C$1.05 per share. MindMed said part of the proceeds will help fund ongoing research and development work on psilocybin in collaboration with the University Hospital Basel's Liechti Lab in Switzerland to better understand and compare the altered states of consciousness induced by psilocybin and LSD. It added that the funds will also go towards the development of 18-MC, a non-hallucinogenic molecule derivative of ibogaine from the African plant iboga, as a way to treat opioid use disorder.
