According to its regulatory filing, which can be accessed from the Registrar of Companies, the board of Immuneel Therapeutics has approved a special resolution to issue 10 equity shares and 8,164 Series A1 CCPS at an issue price of Rs.1,22,330 each to raise Rs.100 crore, or $12 million.

According to the filings, the company will use these investments for growth and expansion as determined by the board.
