PaxMedica (NASDAQ:PXMD) stock is climbing higher on Wednesday after the company completed a public offering for its shares.

According to a press release from the company, it’s offering 5.38 million shares of PXMD stock at a price of $1.30 per share. Each of the shares also comes with a warrant to purchase an additional share. These warrants have an exercise price that matches the stock price in the offering.

The pricing of the stock offering was announced earlier this week and is set to close today. This has shares of PXMD stock rebounding after falling during the initial pricing of its shares. That makes sense as the $1.30 per share offering price was below its closing price of $1.75 per share when the offering began.

PaxMedica expects to raise $7 million from this stock offering. It also intends to use roughly $200,000 of these funds to pay back the convertible promissory note held by Lind Global Fund II LP. The rest will be used for development programs and general corporate purposes.
