SAN DIEGO, CA, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emerald Health Pharmaceuticals Inc. (EHP), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a new class of medicines to treat diseases with unmet medical needs, has announced a closing date for its current Regulation A (“Reg A”) offering round following the strong demand for its capital raise to date. The financing round is anticipated to close on or before October 30th  as we are nearing the maximum raise of $50 million qualified under our current Offering Statement (as of October 18, 2020, EHP had received investment commitments of approximately $48 million under its Reg A offering).

EHP is currently offering shares of Common Stock at $6.00 per share to both accredited and non-accredited investors. The minimum investment is 500 shares, or $3,000. The Company’s Offering Circular, which was qualified by the SEC on July 14, 2020, can be viewed at www.emeraldpharama.life. EHP will stop accepting subscription agreements as of 11:59 PM PT on October 30, 2020, or once the maximum of $50 million is reached, whichever comes first. Investors interested in purchasing shares are encouraged to read the Offering Circular and exhibits and consult with their tax, legal, or financial professional prior to investing.

Since the initial Reg A qualification in 2018, the Company has made significant progress in its financing, clinical and corporate development efforts, including most notably the successful initiation of its Phase 2a study of EHP-101 for the treatment of systemic sclerosis.

Proceeds from this offering are being used primarily to complete EHP’s current Phase 2a clinical study of EHP-101 in systemic sclerosis, initiate preparations for EHP’s planned Phase 2 study for multiple sclerosis and continue preclinical development of EHP-102 for the treatment of Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease.

About Regulation A

In the United States under the Securities Act of 1933, any offer to sell securities must either be registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or meet certain qualifications to exempt it from such registration. Regulation A (or Reg A) contains rules providing exemptions from the registration requirements, allowing some companies to use public solicitations to offer and sell their securities without having to register the securities with the SEC. Regulation A offerings are intended to make access to capital possible for small and medium-sized companies and to allow non-accredited investors to participate in the offering. The regulation is found under Title 17 of the Code of Federal Regulations, chapter 2, part 230.
