SEATTLE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwired - Dec. 7, 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) is pleased to announce that, effective today, the Corporation has consolidated its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated common Share for every ten (10) pre-consolidated Shares (the "Reverse Split"). The Reverse Split was approved by the shareholders at the last Annual General Meeting and Corporation's Board of Directors in accordance with the Corporation's Articles, and has received the approval from the TSX Venture Exchange. Proportional adjustments will be made to the Corporation's authorized shares, outstanding options, warrants and conversion terms in convertible debentures.

Corporate Update

The Corporation also announces the installation of the VMS™ heart analysis system in a leading hospital in Shanghai. In addition, a team of cardiologists at the hospital has been trained to use the VMS and is ready to study patients as part of a research and evaluation program.

"I am pleased to have an operating VMS in a major cardiovascular hospital in China to allow the senior cardiologists to evaluate our product," stated Dr. George Adams, CEO of Ventripoint. "VentriSound, our shareholder and partner in China, was instrumental in selecting this prestigious hospital and we look forward to other installations in China, shortly."

This installation is a key milestone to establish the significance of the VMS as a unique diagnostic tool in China. VentriSound continues to work towards establishing a joint venture and will make an additional investment into Ventripoint of $2,250,000 within the context of market conditions at that time. After the investment, Ventrisound would hold more than 10% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Corporation, and would be granted the right to nominate one director to the board of directors of the Corporation.

A second VMS machine is in China and is being sent to another leading hospital in China.

The Corporation also announces it has progressed on the development of the additional catalogues for the left atrium and right atrium for the four-chamber heart analysis system. It has completed the review of its image database and determined it has sufficient images to build the catalogues. It has begun the construction of the catalogues, which is expected to take a few months to complete.
