Miraculins Announces Closing of Third Tranche of Non-Convertible Secured Loan

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Miraculins Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MOM) ("Miraculins" or the "Company") a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and commercializing diagnostic and risk assessment technologies for unmet clinical needs, announces that it has closed the third tranche under the non-convertible secured loan with a third party lender (the "Lender") as previously announced on December 23, 2013 (the "Loan"), receiving an advance of CDN$150,000 from the Lender.

Under the third tranche of the Loan, the Lender purchased a promissory note with a principal amount of CDN$166,667 for a purchase price of CDN$150,000. Miraculins will have the option to request the Lender to advance additional tranches under the Loan, which the Lender may approve or reject in its sole discretion. All amounts owing under the Loan will be due and payable on December 31, 2014 and will bear interest of 12% per annum, payable quarterly. In addition, any overdue payment will bear additional interest at a rate of 6% per annum, for a combined interest rate of 18% per annum on any overdue payment. Subject to regulatory approval, interest payable on the Loan may be satisfied in common shares of Miraculins in certain circumstances.

As consideration for providing the third tranche of the Loan, Miraculins issued 75,758 common shares to the Lender. To correct a prior miscalculation, an additional 17,172 common shares were also issued in connection with the second tranche of the Loan, previously announced on February 10, 2014. The common shares are subject to resale restrictions for a period of four months from the date of issuance under applicable securities legislation.

The proceeds of the Loan will be used for general operating, ongoing product development, inventory and sales and marketing related costs.

About Miraculins Inc.

Miraculins is a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and commercializing non-invasive technologies for unmet clinical needs. A significant number of promising diagnostic opportunities remain un-commercialized because of the sizable gap between the discovery stage, when research institutions are typically involved, and the commercialization stage, when the larger commercial enterprises become interested. Miraculins has direct experience in bridging this gap. The Company's Scout DS® system is the first non-invasive diabetes testing system designed to provide a highly sensitive and convenient method for measuring diabetes related biomarkers in the skin, the accumulation of which are accelerated by abnormal blood sugar levels and oxidative stress. Unlike current testing methods, a Scout DS® test requires no blood draw, no fasting, and no waiting for a lab result. The product has been used and validated in thousands of patients around the world. The Company's PreVu® POC Test is a revolutionary new coronary artery disease risk assessment technology that measures cholesterol levels in a patient's skin non-invasively, painlessly and without the need for fasting.
