(TSX VENTURE:IMM), a Canadian-based company and a leader in the wellness industry (the "Company" or "Immunotec"), is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada in connection with a treasury offering of common shares ("Common Shares") in the capital of the Company (the "Primary Shares") and a secondary offering of Common Shares (the "Secondary Shares" and collectively with the Primary Shares, the "Offered Securities") by two selling shareholders of the Company (the "Selling Shareholders") for gross proceeds of $7 million to $15 million (the "Offering").

The net proceeds from the sale of Primary Shares pursuant to the Offering will be used by the Company primarily (i) to finance future growth opportunities, such as expanding its direct selling network in new markets in Central and South America, (ii) to establish "pick and pack" facilities in Mexico, (iii) to purchase new manufacturing equipment for its existing manufacturing facility located in Blainville, Quebec, Canada, (iv) to improve its information technology and systems infrastructure and (v) for working capital and general corporate purposes.

An underwriting agreement for the Offering will be entered into by the Company, the Selling Shareholders and the Underwriters, at the time of filing of the final short form prospectus.

The Company and the Selling Shareholders expect to grant to the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 15 percent of the number of Offered Securities sold pursuant to the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes.

Final pricing and determination of the number of Primary Shares and Secondary Shares to be sold pursuant to the Offering will occur immediately prior to the filing of the final short form prospectus in respect of the Offering. The Offering is subject to market conditions, and there can be no assurance as to whether or when the Offering may be completed, or as to the actual size or terms of the Offering. The Offering is subject to customary conditions and regulatory approval, including that of the TSX Venture Exchange.

If completed, the closing of the Offering shall take place within 30 days of the date of receipt for the final short form prospectus in respect of the Offering, or on such other date agreed upon by Company and the Lead Underwriter. The Offered Securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), or any state securities laws of the United States. Accordingly, the Offered Securities will not be offered or sold to persons within the United States unless an exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act and applicable state securities laws is available.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities described herein.

Copies of the preliminary short form prospectus will be available once a receipt has been obtained therefor at www.sedar.com and a written copy may be obtained upon request by contacting Canaccord Genuity Corp., Attention: Ron Sedran, Managing Director, Equity Capital Markets, P.O.
