NFL Biosciences is going public in order to finance its phase II/III study, that has already been approved, on smoking cessation, and to develop treatments for other addictions such as alcohol and cannabis.

NFL Biosciences was listed through the admission to trading of the 5,234,612 shares making up its equity, of which 1,315,842 new shares were issued under a Global Offering[1], after the partial exercise of the extension option.

The admission and issue price of NFL Biosciences shares was set at €3.80 per share. Market capitalisation was €20 million on the day of listing. The offering raised about €5 million altogether.

Ignacio Faus, CEO of NFL Biosciences, said: “We would like to thank all the shareholders, both institutional and individual, who have supported us in this rights issue. We will be able to strengthen our company with new staff to support the progress of the NFL-101 clinical study, and initiate the development of the NFL-201 and NFL-301 programmes for the treatment of cannabis addiction and the reduction of alcohol consumption.
