Draw Down of Convertible Note Facility
As disclosed in its IPO Prospectus in May 2021, the loan is convertible to shares in VTL at a Loan Conversion Price of $0.20 per share (the issue price for the IPO) subject to approval by VTL shareholders at a general meeting. The interest rate applicable is 8% per annum (to be capitalised and repaid with the principle upon settlement of the loan), the initial period of the loan is for 12 months and VTL may repay the loan at its election prior to the expiry date or extend the repayment period by a further 12 months.
VTL's CEO and Managing Director, Dr Glenn Tong said "We are very appreciative of the strong support that our cornerstone investor, Mr Aiden Jiang, has continued to show the Company. This is a critical stage of our growth when our two nutraceutical products, NE1-Elite(R) and NE1-Heart(R), are being launched in the US and we are expecting to commence our NAFLD/NASH Phase II clinical study in Q4 of 2021 and our Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Phase II clinical study in Q1 of 2022. Mr Jiang's support will accelerate our progress towards some key inflection points such as the first sales of nutraceuticals in the US and Phase II clinical data readouts in the next 18 months."
