Titan Medical Inc. Announces Closing of Public Offering

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 29, 2017) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Titan Medical Inc. (the "Company") (TSX: TMD) (OTCQB: TITXF) is pleased to announce that it closed its previously announced public offering (the "Offering") earlier today pursuant to an agency agreement (the "Agency Agreement") dated June 26, 2017 between the Company and Bloom Burton Securities Inc. (the "Agent").

The Company sold 48,388,637 units (each, a "Unit") under the Offering at a price of CDN $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of CDN $7,258,296. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of CDN $0.20 for a period of five years following today's date (the "Closing"). The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund continued development work in connection with the Company's SPORT Surgical System, as well as for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

The Common Shares sold under the Offering will be listed and posted for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TMD at the opening on June 29, 2017.

The Units were qualified for sale by way of a prospectus dated June 26, 2017 (together, the "Prospectus") filed by the Company in the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. The Units were also offered for sale in the United States through United States registered broker-dealers appointed by the Agent as sub-agents pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state laws.

Related Party Transaction

An aggregate of 1,445,973 Units were issued to insiders of the Company under the Offering for gross proceeds of $216,896, which included all of the Company's directors and officers. Each insider subscription constitutes a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61 101 -- Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61 101"). In completing the insider subscriptions, the Company relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61 101 set forth in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61 101, as the aggregate value of the insider subscription does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.

The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering due to the limited time between the launch of the Offering and the Closing.
