Boustead Securities Client Know Labs (KNWN) Conducts Initial $2.6M Private Placement Closing
Boustead Securities, LLC (“Boustead”) client Know Labs, Inc. (“Know Labs” or the “Company”) (OTC: KNWN), an emerging leader in non-invasive medical diagnostics, announced an initial closing of $2,632,500 in a private placement to 36 accredited investors through a Regulation D 506(c) subordinated convertible note offering.
The private placement consisted of convertible notes that bear annual interest of 8% and will be automatically converted to Common Stock at the lower of $1.00 per share on the one year anniversary or at a 25% discount to a Qualified Financing plus Warrants that were granted on a 1 to 0.5 basis (one-half Warrant for each full share of Common Stock into which the Convertible Notes are convertible). The Warrants have a five-year term and an exercise price equal to 120% of the per share conversion price of the Qualified Financing or other mandatory conversion.
The Company may continue offering additional Convertible Notes and Warrants on substantially the same terms until June 30, 2020 (unless extended at the discretion of the Company) or until the Company has raised a maximum of $5 million (unless increased at the discretion of the Company) in gross proceeds (or such other amount determined by the Company in its discretion).
Know Labs aims to create non-invasive biosensors capable of detecting and measuring biomolecules continuously. This has applications for a new area of personal health and medicine that may allow issues derived from abnormal blood glucose, hormone, medications, and metabolite levels to be discovered in real time. Know Labs has a foundational IP portfolio of 14 issued and 24 pending patents with an aggressive IP development plan in place.
In early April, Know Labs was granted a patent on its Bio-RFID™ technology, entitled “Health Related Diagnostics Employing Spectroscopy in Radio/Microwave Frequency Band.” Know Labs’ first focus with its Bio-RFID™ technology is the wearable non-invasive continuous monitoring of blood glucose levels, an important breakthrough for the diabetes community. The Company is making progress engineering the UBAND Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) into its market ready form for clinical trials later this year, the results of which will be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration for approval.
Know Labs plans to initially enter the diabetic Continuous Glucose Monitoring (GDM) market with its UBAND non-invasive CGM product and to later enter the other clinical monitoring markets for continuous, non-invasive hormone, metabolite, and biomolecular monitoring. Each of these markets has eligible patent ranges in the millions, several potentially translating into significant market opportunities.
