Laser-eye developer Q-Vis is due to re-list on the Australian Stock Exchange this week following completion of a $2.4 million capital raising.
The capital raising at 0.8 cents per share was partly underwritten by Paterson Ord Minnett and facilitated by Ascent Capital, a specialist in the reconstruction and recapitalisation of listed companies.
Chairman David Steinepreis said the company had established a joint venture with Paul Van Saarloos and Simon Gordon to evaluate Q-Vis’ intellectual property for future development and possible commercialisation.
Dr Van Starloos and Mr Gordon are former senior executives of the company who subsequently established Balcatta-based CustomVis, which has developed complementary technology.
The two men will hold a 51 per cent stake in the joint venture and CustomVis has an option to acquire that stake.
Q-Vis originally listed on the ASX in July 2000 and was suspended in December 2002 following ongoing losses.
