ATLANTA, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — MiMedx Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MDXG) is pleased to announce today that its $5,000,000 offering of common stock and warrants has been over-subscribed. Common stock in the offering is priced at $.60 per share. For every two shares of common stock purchased, each investor receives a warrant to purchase one share of common stock at a price of $1.50 per share. Details regarding the private placement of these securities will be disclosed in a Form 8-K to be filed by the Company later this week.
The proceeds of the offering will be used to support the Company’s launch of its first product, the Paradis Vaso Shield(TM), to facilitate further development activities related to progressing the Company’s other products through regulatory clearance, as well as provide working capital and for general corporate purposes.
Parker H. “Pete” Petit, Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are grateful to the existing shareholders who participated. I am very pleased that we have also added a distinguished list of new shareholders. I personally participated in the placement along with some other members of our management team. This offering provides the capital to develop our distribution network for our hydrogel spine products and for our future sports medicine collagen fiber products. This financing also will fund additional progress on obtaining regulatory clearances for our other new products. Depending on how rapidly our revenue develops from sales of our Vaso Shield during the first and second quarter of 2010, the Company may need to raise only a few million dollars in additional funding in order to reach our breakeven point.”
