Dermatology drug developer Azitra (AZTR) has slightly upsized its proposed initial public offering to $20M.
Azitra said in a filing that it was now looking to offer 2.4M shares priced at $5 per share, a figure that could likely change. Underwriters would be granted a 45-day option to buy up to 360K additional shares to cover over-allotments.
Last month, the biotech company indicated in an S-1 filing that it was seeking to raise around $17M.
Azitra intends to list its shares on NYSE under the symbol AZTR. Think Equity is serving as lead underwriter.
Based in Connecticut, Azitra is a developer of bioengineered therapies for the treatment of dermatological diseases and disorders. The company’s lead product is a genetically modified bacteria called ATR-12 for the treatment of a rare disease called Netherton Syndrome. The product is in Phase I testing.
Earlier Monday, neurostimulation device maker Cortigent (CRGT) filed for a $17M IPO. The company is developing devices to help restore vision in profoundly blind people and movement in the arms and hands of stroke patients.
