The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the Company’s research collaboration with National Research Council Canada; other Lexaria-developed R&D related to the delivery and bioavailability of cannabis, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine; and working capital and general corporate purposes.

“We are elated to have achieved our goals with respect to this financing since, for the first time ever, Lexaria now has sufficient capital to operate and strategically plan for beyond a one-year period,” said Chris Bunka, CEO. “We expect to achieve significant advancement in all aspects of our business in 2017 and 2018 and will provide additional information regarding our plans in the weeks to come.”
