Numinus has announced a $10 million at-the-market equity offering program that allows the company to issue and sell up to $10,000,000 (CAD) of common shares. At-the-market allows companies to issue shares and raise capital from time to time, at the company’s discretion.
Despite increased revenue and a decent balance sheet, the company’s cash position was $13.0 million as of May 31, 2023 (according to their last results) — likely motivating this capital-raising move. See the full press release below.
This news follows Numinus’ recent announcement that it was ceasing operating activities at Numinus Bioscience – its non-revenue producing research lab — and is consolidating certain of its clinic operations.

Numinus Wellness Inc. Announces At-The-Market Offering Equity Program
VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 25, 2023 /CNW/ – Numinus Wellness Inc. (“Numinus” or the “Company”) (TSX: NUMI) (OTCQX: NUMIF), is pleased to announce that it has established an at-the-market equity offering program (the “ATM Program”) that allows the Company to issue and sell up to C$10,000,000 of common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Common Shares”) from time to time, at the Company’s discretion and subject to regulatory requirements. All Common Shares issued under the ATM Program will be sold in transactions that are deemed to be “at-the-market” distributions as defined in National Instrument 44-102 – Shelf Distributions. All Common Shares sold under the ATM Program will be sold through the Toronto Stock Exchange upon which the Common Shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded, at the prevailing market price at the time of sale. As Common Shares distributed under the ATM Program will be issued and sold at the prevailing market prices at the time of their sale, prices may vary among purchasers and during the period of distribution.
The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program, if any, will be determined in the Company’s sole discretion and in accordance with the terms and conditions of an equity distribution agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) dated September 25, 2023 between the Company and Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc. (the “Agent”). The ATM Program provides the Company with enhanced flexibility should future additional financing be required, and it may be activated if and as deemed appropriate. The Company currently intends to use the net proceeds from the ATM Program, to the extent raised, principally for general corporate purposes (including funding ongoing operations and/or working capital requirements), to repay indebtedness outstanding from time to time, discretionary capital programs and potential future acquisitions.
Distributions of the Common Shares under the ATM Program, if any, will be made pursuant to the terms of the Distribution Agreement. The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Common Shares under the ATM Program and, as at the date hereof, no Common Shares have been distributed by the Company pursuant to the Distribution Agreement. Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, the ATM Program will terminate upon the earlier of: (i) July 27, 2025, (ii) the issuance and sale of all of the Common Shares subject to the Distribution Agreement, or (iii) the termination of the Distribution Agreement.
The offering of Common Shares under the ATM Program is qualified by a prospectus supplement dated September 25, 2023 (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to the Company’s final short form base shelf prospectus filed in all of the provinces and territories of Canada, dated June 27, 2023 (the “Shelf Prospectus”). Copies of the Distribution Agreement, the Prospectus Supplement and the Shelf Prospectus are available on the Company’s profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca. Alternatively, the Agent will send copies of the Distribution Agreement, the Prospectus Supplement and the Shelf Prospectus, upon request only, by contacting the Agent at: 161 Bay Street, Suite 3800, Toronto, Ontario M5J 2S1 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
