BROSSARD, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- DIAGNOS Inc. ("DIAGNOS") (TSX VENTURE:ADK), a leader in healthcare technical services including, screening, software and algorithm development, data analysis, and image processing, is pleased to announce that the Corporation has signed a binding letter of agreement ("Letter of Agreement") with Warnex Inc. ("WARNEX") (TSX VENTURE:WNX.H) pursuant to which WARNEX will merge with a wholly-owned subsidiary of DIAGNOS (the "Transaction").

Upon the closing of the Transaction, shareholders of WARNEX will receive one common share of DIAGNOS for each common share of WARNEX held. For the purposes of the Transaction, each of the DIAGNOS common shares and the WARNEX common shares have been attributed a value of $0.08 per share. Each shareholder of WARNEX and of DIAGNOS will, upon the closing of the Transaction, also be entitled to receive an additional half-warrant for each WARNEX common share or DIAGNOS common share held. Each whole warrant will be exercisable into one common share of DIAGNOS at an exercise price of $0.10 per share for a period of twelve months following the closing of the Transaction. The current holders of WARNEX warrants will receive one warrant of DIAGNOS for each warrant of WARNEX held.

PCP has a demonstrated track record of operating and growing healthcare businesses and DIAGNOS looks forward to their experience, advice and support," stated Andre Larente, DIAGNOS President.
