Cheetah Medical Runs Fast to Raise $14.5 million

 / By Clive Minchom /
Cheetah Medical Ltd, an Israeli company with offices in Israel and the United States,  made a Form D Filing with the United States Securities And Exchange Commission notifying the SEC of a US$14.5 million round of equity financing which it has sold as an exempt offering under rule 506 of the SEC’s regulations.  The filing also indicated the sale was part of an intended US$24 million total financing round, leaving US$9.5 million still to be sold.  Earlier on March 15th 2013 a press release had indicated that US$20 million had been sold, so this stands as a correction until possible final partners for the new financing are completely organized.
