Medicinal cannabis company, Rua Bioscience announced it is seeking up to $20 million from investors. The announcement comes ahead of a sharemarket listing later in October. Rua Bioscience was founded in 2016 as a subsidiary of Hikurangi Enterprises, which aims to create economic opportunities for local communities. A portion of the capital raising was a priority offer of $5 million in shares to Tairāwhiti (East Coast) residents, and others closely associated with the business. The remaining $15 million worth of shares were allocated across retail brokers and a small number of institutional investors. Mark Lister, head of private wealth research at Craigs Investment Partners, said the offer was very small, compared with other businesses listed on the NZX.
