Palm Beach, FL; September 10, 2020 – Q2Earth Inc. (OTCQB: QPWRD) announced today that it has filed an amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation and has received FINRA approval to change the company’s name to QSAM Biosciences, Inc., and will commence trading under the new stock symbol QSAM within 20 business days. The company has also enacted a 25:1 reverse stock split effective today and increased its authorized common stock to 300 million shares, as approved by its stockholders in January 2020.
The name change to QSAM Biosciences is meant to reflect the new direction of the company, after securing the exclusive, worldwide rights to a clinical stage novel radiopharmaceutical called CycloSam® which is meant to treat different types of bone cancer and related diseases. This nuclear technology was developed by ISO Therapeutics Group, LLC, whose founders created Quadramet®, one of the first FDA approved and commercially available radiopharmaceuticals. CycloSam is expected to go into Phase 1 clinical trials in Q1 2021, and has already been used successfully in one human trial this past summer.
“The next several months for QSAM will be very exciting as we prepare for and expect to commence human trials of CycloSam, including treatment of a rare and devastating form of pediatric bone cancer called osteosarcoma. We look forward to securing additional strategic partnerships, building our team and expanding our test sites as we push towards clinical trials early next year. QSAM Biosciences is more than just a new name, but a whole new mission for this company in the treatment of cancer,” stated Douglas Baum, a company Director and President and CEO of the company’s wholly subsidiary QSAM Therapeutics.
Stockholders will not need to do anything in connection with the reverse stock split. Any fractional share has been rounded up to the nearest whole share. The company plans to transfer its remaining compost and soil technology assets over the following month in exchange for the elimination of a material portion of its debt.
