San Diego, CA September 17, 2015 – Nascent Biotech, Inc, (“Nascent” or “the Company”) (PINK.BB: NBIO) is pleased to announce that it has retired the $ 60,000 convertible debenture effective yesterday. The convertible debt could have potentially been converted into 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, thus diluting all the shareholders by nearly 30%. Company management felt that the debenture was a toxic debt and that repaying it was best for the Company and its shareholders.
“Because of this enormous dilution potential, we felt it was in the best interest of the shareholders that the Company retire the debt which was a remnant from the merger with the public entity last year,” stated Sean Carrick, President and CEO of Nascent. Carrick further stated, “the Company has advanced its science and is moving towards application of its IND so it can commence clinical trials in the near future.”
