Neoleukin Therapeutics Inc. seeks to raise about $75 million in gross proceeds from a public offering of its common stock.
The Seattle-based biotechnology company is offering 8,925,000 shares for $8.40 each. Underwriters have also been given an option to buy up to an additional 1,338,750 common shares, Neoleukin Therapeutics said in a Dec. 17 press release.
The offering is expected to close Dec. 20, the company added.
Net proceeds will primarily be used to advance the clinical development of the company's experimental treatment NL-201. The company will also use the proceeds to develop its preclinical pipeline and to fund working capital and for general corporate purposes, including capital improvements to properties it leases.
