Luther Medical Products Inc. said it has completed a private placement of warrants expected to bring $1 million in new capital to the tiny Santa Ana-based maker of catheters and needles over the next year.
The warrants were sold to a Canadian investor who did not want to be identified, said Ron Luther, the company's founder and chairman.
Luther said the warrants convert into one share each of common stock at an exercise price of $1 a share. Luther Medical closed unchanged in over-the-counter trading Wednesday at a bid price of $1.25 a share.
The warrants expire incrementally over the next year, and if exercised, would give the investor a 12% stake in the company, making him its second-largest shareholder, Luther said.
