The Company intends to use the funds from the private placement to fund the pharmacokinetic trials required before it can begin Phase III trials on its three investigational new drugs ("INDs") that were submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"). These drug development candidates are for menopause symptom relief, and two of the three submitted INDs have been accepted by the FDA. The accepted INDs are for a progestin product and an estrogen product, while the third drug will be a product that is a combination of progestin and estrogen. The Company's strategy is to begin its Phase III trials as early as the first quarter of 2013.
