SEATTLE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwired - Aug. 31, 2015) -

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

VentriPoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("VentriPoint" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VPT) announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 54,545,454 units ("Units") at $0.055 per Unit for total gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of Ventripoint ("Common Share") and one quarter of one Common Share warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one half of one additional Common Share at a price of $0.11 per Common Share for a period of 2 years after the issuance of the Warrant, subject to accelerations in certain events.

The Corporation will use the proceeds of the Private Placement for sales and marketing and general working capital purposes.

The Common Shares and the Warrants acquired by the subscribers would be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of closing of the Private Placement except as permitted by applicable securities legislation and the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). The Private Placement is subject to approval by the TSXV.

The Corporation also wishes to correct its news release dated August 26, 2015. In particular, an aggregate of 560,000 Common Shares were issued at a deemed price of $0.057 per Common Share as payment of an aggregate of $31,920 in interest owing by the Corporation pursuant to six outstanding debentures (the "Shares for Debt"). As a result of the Shares for Debt, the Corporation's net debt was reduced by $31,920. The Corporation also reached an agreement with the holder of a separate outstanding debenture to amend the maturity date under such debenture from August 30, 2015 to October 30, 2015 (the "Debenture Amendment").

The TSXV has approved both the Shares for Debt and the Debenture Amendment. The Shares for Debt transaction closed on August 28, 2015.
