ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. ("ENDRA" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NDRAU), a developer of photo- and thermo-acoustic technology to bring new capabilities to existing ultrasound systems, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 1,680,000 units, each consisting of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase one share of common stock, at an offering price of $5.00 per unit. The common stock and warrants will trade together as units during the first 60 days following the date of the prospectus pursuant to which the offering is being made (unless the underwriters' representative determines that an earlier date is acceptable) and, thereafter, the units will automatically separate and the common stock and warrants will trade separately. Following separation, each warrant will have an exercise price of $6.25 per share of common stock and will expire on the fifth anniversary of the original issuance date. The units are expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on May 9, 2017 under the symbol "NDRAU." Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares of common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbols "NDRA" and "NDRAW," respectively.
The Company has also granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 252,000 units to cover over-allotments, if any, provided that in no event may exercise of this option occur after separation of the units. ENDRA expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the development and regulatory approval and to prepare for the commercialization of the Company's Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Thermo Acoustic Enhanced Ultrasound application in the European Union and for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
The offering is expected to close on or about May 12, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
