Corum Group has executed agreements to raise $3.66 million though the placement of 146.4 million new ordinary shares to sophisticated and professional investors.

Corum is a software company and hardware reseller. It has over 25 years of experience developing and selling Point-Of-Sale, dispensing, and managing software to pharmacies and associated businesses in Australia.

The capital raising has inspired support from Alchemy Healthcare. Alchemy will invest $1.5 million in Corum through related entities of its directors.

“It is particularly rewarding that a team of the calibre of Alchemy Healthcare has chosen to become strategic investors,” Corum Group CEO David Clarke said.

“They will add a depth of relationship and expertise in Australian healthcare that will contribute enormously as we adapt to a changing market and pursue broader opportunities,” David continued.

The company is now well positioned to capitalise on growth opportunities within its core pharmacy software and adjacent markets.

Corum dabbles within the health care and e-commerce industries and the capital raising is intended to support the growth of these businesses.

With its “Corum Clear Dispense” product solution and the recently announced Head Office platform forming the basis of next generation cloud-enabled solutions, Corum has a clear focus on independently delivering innovative solutions to its customers.

“Corum is a longstanding pillar of the industry, providing high quality software solutions to Australian community pharmacies. We are excited to assist in the exploration of potential growth options that leverage Corum’s strong market position,” Alchemy Healthcare Executive Director Nick England said.

As part of the transaction, Nick will be invited to join the Corum Board as a non-executive director. He has an extensive career and broad relationships across the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector in Australia and internationally.

The placement is conditional upon shareholder approval which Corum intends to seek at the upcoming Annual General Meeting.
