SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 2019 – US Capital Global Securities, an affiliate of US Capital Global, is offering to accredited investors a $15 million preferred equity investment in the privately held pharmaceutical company, S1 Biopharma (“S1”).
S1 has a pipeline of drugs targeted at sexual dysfunction. Its leading drug, Lorexys, is targeted at female hypoactive sexual dysfunction disorder and is ready to begin phase 2b trials.

“It has been a pleasure serving S1 as its lead financial advisor,” said Charles Towle, CEO at US Capital Global Securities. “Our shared enthusiasm for Lorexys’ strong phase 2a data was a key determinant in accepting this engagement. With US Capital Global Securities’ financial advisory and capital raise services, S1 is in a good position to advance its clinical trials.
