Delcath Systems Inc. plans to raise about $9.5 million in a private placement of company units.
Each unit under the placement will be sold at $1,000 each and will include one preferred share initially convertible into 16,667 common shares — at an initial price of 6 cents per share — and a common-stock purchase warrant.
Each warrant entitles the holder to buy one common share at an initial exercise price of 6 cents for a period of five years from the date of an anticipated reverse stock split at Delcath.
The placement is expected to close on Aug. 19.
Roth Capital Partners is acting as the sole placement agent for the transaction.
