Result of Placing and Notice of General Meeting

 Funds will accelerate commercialisation of Parsortix system that is currently under FDA substantive review 

 

ANGLE believes that the earliest prospect of FDA clearance is Q2 CY21*

 

ANGLE plc (AIM:AGL OTCQX:ANPCY), a world-leading liquid biopsy company, is pleased to announce that, further to the announcement made earlier today, the Company has successfully raised gross proceeds of £19.6 million by conditionally placing 42,608,695 Placing Shares at a price of 46 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price") with new and existing investors. 

The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 5.15 per cent. to the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share of 48.5 pence on 26 October 2020.

A circular to Shareholders is expected to be posted shortly, including details of the General Meeting and the Resolutions and will be available on the Company's website, www.angleplc.com.

The General Meeting will be held at 10.00 a.m. on 13 November 2020 at the offices of the Company at 10 Nugent Road, The Surrey Research Park, Guildford, Surrey GU2 7AF.

 

* ANGLE is following a De Novo FDA process for Parsortix, as there is no predicate device. Consequently, there is inherent uncertainty over the timing of the process and its ultimate success.

 

ANGLE Founder and Chief Executive, Andrew Newland, commented:

 

"We are grateful for the strong support of existing and new shareholders. As well as strengthening the Company's balance sheet, the proceeds from the Placing will allow us to progress commercialisation of our Parsortix system, whilst it is under substantive review with FDA. ANGLE believes that the earliest prospect of FDA clearance for Parsortix, as a platform that harvests intact circulating tumour cells from patient blood for subsequent analysis, in the first instance for metastatic breast cancer, is Q2 CY21.*"
