- Funding in place to meet next regulatory milestone

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, June 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIOXYTRAN, INC. (BIXT), (the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing anti-viral oral drugs to treat retroviruses like SARS-CoV-2 which cause COVID-19 and other viral diseases, announced that it has entered into a common stock purchase agreement with TRITON FUNDS LP for $500,000. The proceeds will help kickstart the dosage optimization study for mild to moderate COVID-19, which has already received the regulatory approval to proceed with dosing. TRITON FUNDS is the second institutional investor aligning its investment strategy with the lead institutional investor Walleye Capital, LLC which was founded in 2005 and now has $5 billion plus of assets under management.

The funding is sufficient to reach the next milestone of a submission of a Phase 3 regulatory trial in India for mild to moderate COVID-19. Bioxytran’s Clinical Research Organization (CRO) has indicated that dosing in the 40-patient trial is expected to commence within the month now that the funding is in place.

"As a cornerstone of our investment portfolio, TRITON FUNDS has been meticulously and strategically trying to build a robust position in Bioxytran over the past year”, said Axel Olson, Equity Analyst and Entrepreneur in Residence at TRITON FUNDS. “Our investment not only serves to solidify our cost basis but, more importantly, empowers Bioxytran with the necessary capital infusion to propel them towards their impending milestone.”

He added, “Having observed the company's trajectory for well over a year, we've been profoundly inspired by the tenacity and resilience of the management team, who have navigated with aplomb amidst a challenging regulatory and financial terrain. We are firm believers in the transformational potential of Bioxytran's technological prowess, a promising beacon that could drastically alter the treatment landscape for viral diseases. This investment represents our steadfast confidence in Bioxytran's capacity to usher in a new era in medical science."
