VALENCIA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2014) - Zenosense, Inc. (OTCQB: ZENO) (the "Company"), a healthcare technology company focused on developing and marketing a device for use in hospitals and other healthcare settings to detect the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) "Super-Bug," is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a securities purchase agreement ("Agreement") for the sales of shares to an accredited investor ("Investor") under the provisions of Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Under the terms of the Agreement, Zenosense will make an initial sale of 55,556 shares of common stock at a gross sale price of $25,000. Furthermore, the Investor has committed to purchase an additional 900,000 shares of common stock in four tranches ("Additional Purchases") for a purchase price of $450,000, subject to certain conditions.
The Investor is committed to make the Additional Purchases subject to the success of Stage One development: the production of a prototype MRSA/SA sensor, which has the capacity to detect MRSA and/or SA contamination ("Additional Purchase Condition"). Once the Additional Purchase Condition is met, the Investor will first purchase 300,000 shares of Common Stock for a purchase price of $150,000 (the "First Tranche Purchase").

Approximately 85% of the payments for the Additional Purchases will be applied to the stage two product development, which has the goal of producing and successfully conducting laboratory testing of 20 beta versions of the MRSA/SA sensor.
In addition, Zenosense will be required to maintain the continuing listing, without interruption, of its common stock on at least one of the OTCQB, OTCQX or equivalent replacement exchange such as the Nasdaq National Market, the Nasdaq SmallCap Market, the New York Stock Exchange or the American Stock Exchange. If at any point the Company fails to meet this listing requirement, the Investor in its sole discretion may terminate any balance due under the Additional Purchases.
To date, the Company has met its Stage One financial obligations in full, having provided in excess of $520,000 in development funding since the beginning of December 2013 to its development partner.
