VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 29, 2013) - Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT) (the "Company") today announced that it has reached agreement with MDR Specialty Distribution Corporation ("MDR") to convert an amount of CDN$598,057.23 (being the equivalent of US$588,118.04, as calculated at the Bank of Canada closing exchange rate on April 26, 2013 of 1.0169 CDN$/US$) owed by the Company to MDR into common shares at a price of $0.09 per common share, subject to disinterested shareholder approval and TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") acceptance (the "Shares for Debt Transaction").

MDR and Excelera Corporation ("Excelera"), the Company's largest shareholder holding approximately 17.71% of the Company's outstanding common shares, are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Venuity Corporation. Herbert A. Toms III, a director of the Company, is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Venuity Corporation, and owns 80% of the shares of Venuity Corporation.

Pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transaction, a total of 6,645,080 common shares will be issued to MDR in settlement of the debt owing. Following the completion of the Shares for Debt Transaction and the Private Placement (as defined below), MDR will own 6,645,080 common shares, being approximately 25.20% of the 26,365,273 common shares of the Company that would then be outstanding.

Concurrently with the completion of the Shares for Debt Transaction, Excelera will subscribe for 2,777,777 units of the Company (the "Units") by way of a private placement at a price of $0.09 per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of approximately CDN$250,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle Excelera to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.1125 per share for a period of four years from the date of issue.

Following the completion of the Shares for Debt Transaction and the Private Placement, Excelera will own 5,777,777 common shares, being approximately 21.91% of the 26,365,273 common shares of the Company that would then be outstanding.

Upon exercise of the Warrants, MDR and Excelera will own a combined 49.76% of the Company's common shares then outstanding. The completion of the Private Placement is subject to disinterested shareholder approval and TSX-V acceptance.

The issuance of securities to MDR and Excelera are considered related party transactions within the meaning of TSX-V Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on the exemption from the formal valuation requirement of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 in connection with such issuance. The Company will be seeking disinterested shareholder approval of the related party transactions in connection with MI 61-101 and TSX-V Policy.
