Botanix Pharma & Argonaut
Argonaut acted as Joint Lead Manager to successfully raise $40 million Placement for Botanix Pharmaceuticals in 2019 to continue the execution of its key clinical development programs and to accelerate its broader commercialisation strategy. Previous transactions included an $8 million Placement in 2018 and a $15 million Placement early that year to further explore the commercial potential of the Permetrex TM technology. Argonaut also served as a Sale Lead Manager in raising A$7 million to advance the clinical development of Botanix Pharmaceuticals’ dermatological products. All Placements were strongly supported by Australian and international-based sophisticated investors, which resulted in the Placements being significantly oversubscribed.
