CTD Holdings Closes $1.725 Million Private Placement

Investment Builds Company Strength in Preparation for Clinical Trials

ALACHUA, FL--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - CTD Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: CTDH), a manufacturer and distributor of cyclodextrins for the pharmaceutical, medical device, cosmetics, and other markets, announced today that it has closed on a Private Placement with a group of qualified private investors led by Novit L.P., an investment arm of U.S. Pharmacia. 

The transaction involved the signing of a Securities Purchase Agreement under which CTD Holdings issued 1,725,000 shares of Common Stock at a price per share of $1.00, resulting in a $1,725,000 capital infusion to the Company. There were no other conditions connected to the issuance of the shares.

Scarsdale Equities, LLC acted as financial advisor and exclusive placement agent of the Company in connection with the Securities Purchase Agreement.

A complete description of the transaction can be found in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with this transaction.

"This vote of confidence from our existing shareholders is especially gratifying," said Dr. Jeffrey Tate, President and CEO. "They share our vision for saving the lives of children with Niemann-Pick Type C by developing this treatment we believe will prove effective against this devastating fatal disease. It continues to build the strength needed for the challenge of clinical trials ahead."

In 2010 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration designated Trappsol® Cyclo™ as an orphan drug for the treatment of Niemann-Pick Type C disease, a rare and fatal genetic condition that typically develops in children under 10 years of age. In the U.S. treatment with Trappsol® Cyclo™ is supervised by a physician holding an approved Investigational New Drug Protocol.

The proceeds of the transaction will be used primarily for the development of the Trappsol® Cyclo™ orphan drug, including filing the Drug Master File with U.S. FDA, planning for clinical trials in Europe and the U.S., and development of the third-generation product.
