ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Shuttle Pharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHPH) ("SHPH" or the "Company"), a discovery and development stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on improving the outcomes of cancer patients treated with radiation therapy (RT), along with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Shuttle Diagnostics, Inc., a Maryland corporation ("Diagnostics"), today announced its intent to commence a Rights Offering where it plans to raise up to $4.5 million through the distribution of subscription rights and the exercise thereof, which full rights will entitle existing SHPH stockholders to purchase from the Company units (the "Units"), with each Unit consisting of (i) one share of SHPH common stock, (ii) a warrant to purchase one share of SHPH common stock exercisable at a per share purchase price of $2.35 per share, and (iii) a percentage of equity interest in Diagnostics. The Units will be sold at a per Unit price equal to 90% of the VWAP of SHPH common stock for the five trading days immediately preceding closing.
SHPH has separately entered into a securities purchase agreement with SRO LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, pursuant to which SRO LLC agreed to commit to purchasing from the Company $2.25 million of Units from the Company. In addition, in the event the Company fails to raise a full $4.5 million in the Rights Offering, SRO LLC agreed to a backstop commitment pursuant to which it would have the right to purchase any remaining Units not purchased by existing SHPH stockholders in the Rights Offering, up to an additional $2.25 million.
In conjunction with its entry into the Purchase Agreement, on February 7, 2024, the Company entered into a placement agent and advisory services agreement with Boustead Securities, LLC ("BSL"), pursuant to which BSL and BSL's affiliates will provide the Company with regular and customary financial consulting advice and will act as placement agent, on a best efforts basis, for the Rights Offering.
SHPH intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in order to effect the Rights Offering, which Rights Offering will be made to holders of SHPH common stock, and other security holders having the right to participate, as of a yet-to-be-determined record date. SHPH currently plans to fix a record date following its filing of a registration statement on Form S-1 registering the Rights Offering and after it completes the requisite review process by the Commission's staff. At such time, SHPH stockholders as of the record date will be notified of their right to participate in the Rights Offering.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor will there be any sale of any securities referred to in this press release in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction. The Rights Offering, when commenced, will be made only by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
