Cambridge Cognition has announced that it has raised total gross proceeds of £2.5 million through an oversubscribed placing of 3,437,500 new ordinary shares (“Placing Shares”) of 1 pence each in the capital of the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) at a price of 72 pence per Ordinary Share (the “Issue Price”); and a subscription for 34,723 Ordinary Shares (the “Subscription Shares”) also at the Issue Price (the “Subscription”) (the Subscription and the Placing together, the “Fundraising”).

finnCap Ltd and Dowgate Capital Limited acted as joint bookrunners to the Company (the “Bookrunners”).

Highlights

  • The Fundraising has raised gross proceeds of £2.5 million at the Issue Price

  • Application has been made for the Placing Shares and the Subscription Shares (together, the “Fundraising Shares”) to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”). It is expected that that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on 12 March 2019 and that dealings in the Fundraising Shares will commence at that time
