Hemostemix Voids Taiwanese Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 29, 2016) - Hemostemix Inc. ("Hemostemix" or the "Company) (TSX VENTURE:HEM) (OTCQX:HMTXF), a clinical-stage autologous cell-therapy company, announced today that it has voided a strategic alliance agreement with Hemostemix Asia, Inc. ("HEMA"), a private, independent company based in Taipei, Taiwan.

The agreement covered a manufacturing and commercial license of the Hemostemix ACP-01 technology to HEMA for treating critical limb ischemia (CLI) patients in Taiwan, China, and South Korea. According to the agreement, HEMA was supposed to raise US$5 million toward the implementation of their business plan and contribute up to 20 participants from three to five clinical sites in Taiwan to the ongoing Hemostemix phase-2 clinical trial for treating CLI. The agreement further designated Hemostemix as an equity partner with 35% ownership in HEMA. These obligations where not met as required.

The Company's progress and commercial viability is not at all dependent, on its agreement with HEMA.

(Hemostemix Inc. and Hemostemix Asia, Inc. are separate, unrelated, independent companies even though they have similar names.)
