Scancell Holdings Plc, (PLUS:SCLP), the developer of therapeutic cancer vaccines, today announces an Open Offer of 5,137,775 New Ordinary Shares at a price of 45 pence per New Ordinary Share to raise approximately £2.31 million, before expenses, to fund the working capital requirements of the Company.

An Open Offer Document containing details of the Open Offer is being posted to shareholders later today and will be available on this website.
David Evans, Chairman of Scancell, commented:
“We are pleased to be able to offer existing shareholders the opportunity to participate in this fully underwritten fundraising. The net proceeds of the Open Offer, together with the existing funds held by or available to the Group, will be used to build on the progress achieved since the Company’s admission to PLUS and will be sufficient to allow completion of the Phase I and Phase IIa Clinical Trial of Scancell’s lead melanoma vaccine, SC1B1.”
The Directors of the issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
