NEW YORK, November 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Q BioMed Inc. (OTCQB: QBIO), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Yorkville Advisors Global ("Yorkville") for up to $4,000,000 of convertible debentures. We have closed on the initial tranche of $1,500,000 and expect to close on the balance pending the effective registration of the underlying shares.
The conversion of the Yorkville debentures shall be at the lower of $4.00 or a 7% discount to market, with a floor price of $2.00. Please see our 8-K filing today for further details.
Q BioMed Inc. CEO, Denis Corin said, "We are very pleased to partner with Yorkville at this very exciting time in our evolution. Having a revenue ready drug in hand with the capital to execute on the production, manufacturing and roll out of the drug provides a real catalyst for Q BioMed. In addition to the near term revenue, we see significant upside in both the treatment of metastatic bone cancer (palliation) with our Strontium Chloride 89 radiopharmaceutical ("SR89") as well as the continued development of the Man-01 glaucoma drug."
SR89 is indicated for the treatment of pain associated with metastatic bone cancer. The generic radiopharmaceutical provides long lasting relief for patients suffering from debilitating bone pain due to metastatic cancer, typically caused by advanced-stage breast, prostate or lung cancer. It has been proven to provide a long-term effect resulting in non--narcotic cancer pain relief and enhanced quality of life.
There are approximately 350,000 cases of patients living with bone metastases in the US alone. An additional 380,000 new diagnoses of patients with breast and lung cancer per year and approximately 1 in 3 of those will develop bone metastases. Approximately 80% of patients using SR89 have reported experiencing a substantial decrease in pain, an increase in physical activity and a reduction in the need for opiate analgesics, such as morphine. This represents a very significant market and an opportunity to bring an effective and much needed product to many patients in need.
