SHANGHAI, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co., Ltd ("Nisun" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: NISN), a provider of innovative comprehensive solutions through an integration of technology, industry, and finance, today announced updates on its use of proceeds from its December 2021 underwritten public offering of approximately $77 million of its Class A common shares and pre-funded warrants to purchase Class A common shares ("Offering").
Since the completion of the Offering, the Company has invested approximately $32 million of the net proceeds into its two subsidiaries, NiSun Ocean (Qingdao) Supply Chain Investment Co., Ltd. ("Nisun Ocean") and Zhumadian NiSun Supply Chain Management Co., Ltd. ("Nisun ZMD") for general corporate purposes, repaid approximately $1 million of related party debt, paid approximately $0.5 million in professional fees and held the remainder in its accounts for potential business and operational opportunities. More detailed allocations are as follows:
- Nisun Ocean has received investments of approximately $25 million and has used approximately $3 million primarily in electronics purchases under its strategic cooperation with Shanghai Bailian Group("Bailian").
