Mind Cure Health (CAN:MCUR / US:MCURF) took a major step today in moving up the ranks of publicly listed psychedelic drug companies. Its $10 million bought-deal financing (at a unit price of CAD$0.60) could effectively triple the Company’s overall cash reserves.
Mind Cure has already announced its psychedelics research strategy. It has added the key personnel to drive its psychedelic drug R&D. Now it has the funding in place to aggressively pursue its R&D strategy.
Similarly, MCUR now has more than sufficient funding in place as it puts its first psychedelics-based mental health clinic and training center into operation (scheduled for May 2021).
Not only has Mind Cure raised 2 ½ times as much capital as its previous (oversubscribed) private placement in November, units are priced 33% higher. This indicates the growing institutional support for MCUR’s current operations and longer term objectives.
