Kintara Therapeutics Inc KTRA shares are trading higher by 76.8% to $0.31 Wednesday morning after the company entered into an equity purchase agreement with Lincoln Park Capital for up to $20 million.

What Happened?

Kintara Therapeutics says the company expects this commitment from LPC will provide financial flexibility and is aligned with Kintara's long-term strategy for value creation.
