Bio-Gene Technology Limited (ASX: BGT, Bio-Gene or the Company) , an agtech development company enabling the next generation of novel insecticides to address insecticide resistance, announced the launch of a placement and SPP on 1 September 2023. On 5 September 2023 Bio-Gene announced that it had received commitments to raise $1.4 million via a share placement to sophisticated and professional investors. Today the Company announces that it has received a further amount of $500,000 as part of the placement.

  • Total amount raised under the placement has increased to $1.9 million.
  • The Share Purchase Plan forms part of the capital raising initiative announced on 1 September 2023.
  • Eligible shareholders are offered shares under the SPP at the same price of $0.084 (8.4 cents) as was offered to sophisticated and professional investors, up to a maximum of $10,000 per eligible shareholder.
  • Funds for the production of FLAVOCIDE ® active constituent and the conduct of key studies required for regulatory approval application in Australia.
