BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - August 26, 2015) - Dawson James Securities, Inc. in conjunction with Skyline Medical Inc., (SKLN), announced today the closing of a firm commitment follow-on offering of 1,666,667 Units at $9.00 per Unit for a gross proceeds of $15.0 million. Each unit consists of one share of common stock, one share of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and four Series A Warrants.

"We are pleased to provide Skyline Medical with the capital required to expand their business and deliver on their overall strategic plan," said Robert D. Keyser, Jr., Dawson James' CEO. "The strength of the Skyline Medical story, combined with this unique Unit structure, facilitated a successful transaction in the face of a volatile market environment," Keyser continued. Dawson James provided over 300 additional shareholders by utilizing its proprietary Diversified Investor Offering (DIO) approach including both fundamental institutional investors along with its significant retail and family office network. Keyser also noted "the up-listing from the OTCBB to NASDAQ should help position the Company going forward with increased liquidity as well as attracting new institutional investors."
