Miraculins Signs Letter of Intent for PreVu(R) Distribution in India With $4 Million USD in Minimum Sales Revenues Projected Over Term

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Miraculins Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MOM) ("Miraculins" or the "Company"), a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and commercializing diagnostic tests and risk assessment technologies for unmet clinical needs, today announces that it has executed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Citizen Doctor Pvt. Ltd. ("CDPL"), an Indian healthcare services company, to appoint CDPL as the exclusive distributor for the PreVu® Non-invasive Skin Cholesterol Point-of-Care (POC) Test in India. The LOI also provides for the assignment of non-exclusive distribution rights for PreVu® POC to CDPL in certain other Asian countries.

The non-binding LOI has established the principal terms and conditions of the proposed distribution agreement (the "Agreement") between Miraculins and CDPL, exclusively for India and non-exclusively for certain other Asian countries, including PreVu® POC Spectrophotometer and Reagent Kit pricing, upfront and milestone payments, product ordering and diligence requirements, and ongoing responsibilities of the parties. In addition, CDPL would place a guaranteed first order for 20,000 PreVu® POC tests on signing of the Agreement, which would be activated upon Indian regulatory clearance. The LOI provides the parties with a period of 90 days within which to finalize definitive documentation for the Agreement.

The term of the Agreement would extend for five years from the date of Indian regulatory clearance, subject to minimum annual order quantities by CDPL. If minimum orders were met, this would represent a total order value of approximately $4 Million USD in projected PreVu® Spectrophotometer and Reagent Kit sales over the length of the term. Miraculins would be responsible for leading the Indian regulatory clearance process, with its related costs being the responsibility of CDPL. Guidance and support for the regulatory process would be provided by CDPL as necessary.

With India being a country that relies heavily on predicate country regulatory clearances as regards healthcare products, it is anticipated that the regulatory clearances PreVu® POC has already received in Canada, the European Union, and the U.S., will be advantageous to the process.

Upon clearance of the PreVu® POC in India, CDPL would be responsible for all sales and marketing costs. Miraculins would provide sales and marketing guidance and training support as required. Miraculins would retain the right to establish programs for ongoing device servicing and maintenance once the PreVu® POC devices begin to be sold into the field.

"This is a very important development in the continuing effort to establish PreVu® POC as a new clinical tool to assist with coronary artery disease risk assessment worldwide," stated Paul Moreau, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing for Miraculins. "CDPL is changing how risk assessment is delivered throughout India, and the recognition of PreVu's value by medical professionals in that country where cardiovascular disease is a leading killer, is extremely significant".

According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases will be the largest cause of death and disability in India by 2020. India has a present population of 1.237 billion.
