SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ReShape Lifesciences Inc. (Nasdaq: RSLS), the premier physician-led weight loss and metabolic health solutions company, today announced the closing of its upsized underwritten public offering of 1,275,000 units, with each unit consisting of one share of its common stock, or one pre-funded warrant to purchase one share of its common stock, and one warrant to purchase one and one-half shares of its common stock. Each unit was sold at a public offering price of $8.00. The warrants in the units are immediately exercisable at a price of $8.00 per share and expire five years from the date of issuance. Alternatively, each warrant will become exercisable for 0.75 shares of common stock under the cashless exercise provision included in the common warrants rather than the 1.5 shares of common stock under the cash exercise provision. The shares of common stock (or pre-funded warrants in lieu thereof) and accompanying warrants were only purchasable together in this offering, but were issued separately and immediately separable upon issuance.
Gross proceeds, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses, are approximately $10.2 million. The company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to continue implementation of its growth strategies, for working capital and general corporate purposes.
