The Depositary for the Offer has informed Galil that as of the expiration of the Offer, approximately 6,263,504 shares of common stock of Perseon have been validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, representing approximately 64% of Perseon's common stock. In addition, as of the expiration of the Offer, approximately 2,119,200 of the publicly traded warrants of Perseon have been validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer, representing approximately 16% of Perseon's publicly traded warrants. As a result, while the Minimum Share Condition, as defined in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 5, 2015 (the "Offer to Purchase") was satisfied, the Minimum Public Warrant Condition, also as defined in the Offer to Purchase, was not satisfied. Additionally, Galil has been unable to obtain financing sufficient to satisfy the Financing Condition, as defined in the Offer to Purchase.

Shares and publicly-traded warrants tendered into the Offer have not been accepted for payment and Galil has instructed the Depositary to promptly return all shares and publicly-traded warrants tendered into the Offer to the tendering stockholders and warrant holders, without any action required on the part of the stockholders or warrant holders.

Galil has also notified Perseon that, because the Offer expired in accordance with its terms without Galil Merger Sub, Inc. having purchased any Shares pursuant to the Offer, Galil and Galil Merger Sub, Inc. have terminated the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 26, 2015, by and among Galil, Galil Merger Sub, Inc. and Perseon.
