TORONTO, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraken Robotics Inc. (“Kraken” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PNG) is pleased to announce today that it has closed its previously announced “bought deal” short form prospectus offering (the “Offering”) of common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”). A total of 21,185,300 Common Shares were sold at a price of $0.95 per Common Share for gross proceeds of $20,126,035, inclusive of the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the Underwriters (as defined below).
