ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Zomedica Pharmaceuticals Corp. (NYSE American: ZOM) (TSX-V: ZOM) (“Zomedica” or “Company”), a veterinary diagnostic and pharmaceutical company, today announced that it has completed its second tranche closing of Series 1 Preferred Shares with the issuance of 7 Series 1 Preferred Shares to an accredited investor under a private placement at a purchase price of $1,000,000 per Series 1 Preferred Share for a total purchase price of $7,000,000.
