“With the placement and institutional entitlement offer successfully completed and our upcoming retail entitlement offer fully underwritten, the raise has been very successful and our company will have the runaway it needs to execute on its forward plan,” he added.

FirstWave will now undertake the retail component of the entitlement offer to raise an additional $9 million. Shares will also be priced at 4.5 cents each.
