Added Funds to support global commercialization of cancer
detection capability and cancer therapy technology
N.H., December 20, 2018 — iCAD, Inc.
(NASDAQ: ICAD), a global medical
technology company providing innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions,
today announced that it has entered into definitive agreements to sell
unsecured subordinated convertible debentures, due three years following
issuance, to certain institutional and accredited investors, including participation
by all directors and executive officers of iCAD, in a private placement with
gross proceeds of approximately $7.0 million.
iCAD expects to close the sale of the debentures on or about December
21, 2018, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
With the recent U.S. FDA clearance of ProFound AI for
mammography, a high-performance, cancer detection AI technology, the company
will have added funds to bolster its commercial capability in what is a
substantial addressable market. Improved detection, along a significant
reduction in reading time, makes iCAD’s newly cleared offering a beneficial
addition to advanced 3D Tomosynthesis mammography systems.
Added funds will also bolster the company’s momentum in the
area of intra-operative radiation therapy (IORT). A number of recently
published studies have indicated that Xoft’s non-shielded room, less than 15
minute electronic brachytherapy solution, achieves equivalent recurrence rates
to that of 5 to 7 weeks of external beam radiation therapy.
With core technologies in both imaging artificial
intelligence and intra-operative radiation therapy, the company possesses two scalable
technology platforms. The $7.0 Million funding will allow for the addition of
incremental sales personnel as well as additive service and technical support
personnel for both businesses.
specifics of the financing are as follows. Interest on the debentures will be
payable semi-annually in cash, at a rate per annum of 5%. At any time prior to
maturity, the debentures are convertible into shares of iCAD common stock at a
conversion price of $4.00 per share, subject to adjustment. Upon the
satisfaction of price and other conditions, iCAD has the right to force the
conversion of the debentures. In
connection with such forced conversion only, iCAD is required to pay additional
interest on the debentures, equal to the interest payable to the holder through
the maturity date, which may be paid by iCAD in shares of common stock, subject
to the satisfaction of certain conditions. The debentures are unsecured and
subordinate to iCAD’s existing indebtedness. The outstanding principal and
accrued interest on the debentures will be due and payable on the three-year
anniversary of the issuance date. The debentures will be guaranteed by iCAD’s
subsidiaries. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the sale of
debentures for general corporate purposes.
Capital Group is acting as exclusive placement agent in connection with this
securities issued in this offering will not be registered under the Securities
