“Retaining a full-service IR firm like Kilmer Lucas to support our continued growth and provide customized communication to investors is a step forward for IntelGenx,” commented Andre Godin, CFO & EVP of IntelGenx. “Kilmer Lucas’ IR and strategic advisory services will tailor the Company’s communications to the investment community and improve investors’ understanding of the pharmaceutical film industry.”
Stephen Kilmer, President of Kilmer Lucas, said, “We believe that a strong investment story is emerging out of the successful execution of its business plan, and we are excited that IntelGenx has chosen us to help tell it. Through the provision of a full range of IR and strategic advisory services, our primary goals will be to assist IntelGenx in achieving a fair and sustainable market valuation and to enhance the reputation that it carries in the minds of its stakeholders, including investors, analysts and members of the media.”
Kilmer Lucas is an arm’s length third party to IntelGenx, and it does not have any interest, directly or indirectly, in IntelGenx, or any right or intent to acquire such an interest. IntelGenx will pay Kilmer Lucas a monthly retainer fee of CA$10,000 for its services.
