Synaptogenix, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPX), an emerging biopharmaceutical company focused on developing therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, today announced that it has executed securities purchase agreements to raise gross proceeds of approximately $12.5 million in a private placement financing of common stock and warrants (“Units”). The financing was led primarily by existing institutional shareholders.
Synaptogenix intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement to support the ongoing development of Bryostatin-1, which is currently in a Phase 2b National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) sponsored Alzheimer’s disease (“AD”) trial, as well as additional research and development for new indications.

The warrants will be exercisable for five years at a price of $8.51 per share of common stock. The private placement is expected to close on or about June 16, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
Alan Tuchman, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are appreciative of the continued support from our existing shareholder base who led this financing, and we look forward to continuing to update investors on our NIH sponsored Phase 2 AD trial, as well as discussions with strategic partners on other central nervous system indications.”

The Company has agreed to file one or more registration statements with the SEC registering the resale of the shares of common stock and the shares of common stock underlying the warrants purchased in the private placement.
