SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2021 / Modular Medical, Inc. (OTCQB:MODD), a medical device company focused on next generation insulin delivery technologies to widen the accessibility of insulin pumps to a greater share of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, announced today that it has entered into definitive agreements for a private placement of $6.6 million of convertible promissory notes.
The company intends to use the net proceeds to complete the software and firmware development for its MODD Pivot™ product and the third-party testing required for its anticipated 510k submission to the FDA later in 2021. The remainder of the proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including funding operations and working capital.
The convertible notes are unsecured and carry a 12% annual interest rate and will automatically convert into shares of the company's common stock upon the consummation of a future financing with gross proceeds in excess of $12 million.
Existing investors constituted over 50% of the financing, while company insiders, including members of management and the board of directors, purchased 20%.
"We are pleased to see such a strong response from our existing investors, institutional and individual alike, as well as to welcome several new ones to the Modular Medical family," said CEO Paul Diperna. "This new and ongoing support for our mission to expand access to the most effective forms of treatment for people with diabetes means a great deal to the company and our mission. We look forward to working with all of you going forward."
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
The securities sold in the placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
