Proteome Systems raises $10m through a private placement to institutional and professional investors

Proteome Systems announced it has completed a conditional private placement to institutional and professional investors raising approx $10 million at $0.30 per share

The placement is conditional upon shareholder approval, which the Company will seek at an extraordinary general meeting to be convened in October 2005, with notices to be sent to shareholders shortly.

The net proceeds of the placement after broker and selling fees will be approximately $9.75million.
