MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2015 / Propanc Health Group Corporation (PPCH) (“Propanc” or “the Company”), an emerging healthcare company focusing on development of new and proprietary treatments for cancer patients suffering from pancreatic and colorectal cancers, today announced the Company recently commenced trading on the OTCQB Marketplace, and confirms it continues to file periodic reports under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act.
Companies approved for upgrading are current in their reporting and undergo an annual verification and management certification process by the OTC Markets Group. Investors can find Real-Time Level 2 Quotes displayed and market information for the Company on the OTC Markets Group website.
Further, the Company recently reduced the number of authorized shares of common stock by 80%, down from 10 billion to 2 billion shares of common stock, by filing a Certificate of Amendment with the State of Delaware. The number of authorized shares of preferred stock remains the same at 10 million.
“Propanc has always been a fully reporting Company, and was audited from inception when we first filed our registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We felt it was important to reflect this by maintaining the appropriate certification,” said James Nathanielsz, Propanc’s Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, we sought to reduce our number of authorized shares because it more accurately reflects our intention to build value in our share price and in our Company, long term, as evidenced by the many re-purchases of convertible debt the company has held on its books.”
The Company continues to work with its investment banking advisors on avenues for financing, as management looks to secure the funds necessary to progress its lead cancer treatment, PRP, into early stage clinical trials.
The Company also advises that its research and development activities for PRP and its POP1 research program are progressing well, as it seeks to complete several important upcoming milestones later this year and into the new year, including scheduling meetings with regulatory health agencies in Europe and the US to discuss the non-clinical and clinical development pathway for PRP, as well as ongoing patent filings and prosecutions in order to build and protect the Company’s intellectual property portfolio.
“As we progress each of these activities and achieve certain milestones, we will continue to report these important events to shareholders,” said James Nathanielsz. “We hope to be in a position to disclose further information in coming weeks.”
