The elementary quadratic plus inverse sextic interaction V (x) = x2 + g2/x6 containing a strongly singular repulsive core in the origin is made regular by a complex shift of coordinate x = s −iε. The shift ε > 0 is fixed while the value of s is kept real and potentially observable, s ∈ (−∞, ∞). The low-lying energies of bound states are found in closed form for the large couplings g ≫ 1. Within the asymptotically vanishing 𝒪(g−1/4) error bars these energies are real so that the time-evolution of the system may be expected unitary in an ad hoc physical Hilbert space.
