Generex Biotechnology Corporation (www.generex.com) (OTCQB: GNBT) (http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GNBT/quote) today announced that the company has scheduled an investor conference call for May 15, 2019 with Joseph Moscato, President & Chief Executive Officer of Generex who will present an organizational roadmap outlining Generex Biotechnology's operational, strategic and financial plans, as outlined herein.
Generex is pleased to announce that in the coming week, the company will finalize a financing commitment to advance the strategic goals of the company. The financing will be used to fund manufacturing of commercial products, launch a clinical trial of Regentys ECMH in ulcerative colitis, complete the acquisitions of revenue generating companies, and to launch new service lines for the NuGenerex Distribution Solutions MSO network.
On a commercial front, Generex is pleased to report that the first orders of ExcellagenÒ wound conforming collagen matrix from the company's subsidiary Olaregen Therapeutix has been delivered, and the product has begun to generate revenues. ExcellagenÒ is FDA cleared for the management of wounds, including surgical wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and post-MOHS surgery, among other types of dermal wounds.
As previously reported, Generex has agreements to acquire Fuse Medical, Pantheon Medical, and MediSource Partners in all-stock transactions using the Generex Pool Shares priced at $2.50 per share. The Pool Shares are already accounted for in the total outstanding shares and no new shares will be issued for these transactions. The Pantheon and MediSource acquisitions are expected to be completed shortly after the close of this fiscal quarter (April 30), followed by the acquisition of Fuse Medical, which will take additional time to close. These profitable, innovative, and growing companies in the medical, surgical, and biologic manufacturing and distribution business will add significant revenue and EBITDA to the Generex balance sheet.
Fuse is a manufacturer and national distributor of medical devices, providing a broad portfolio of Orthopedic Implants and a wide array of osteobiologics, regenerative tissues, and amniotic tissue, including human allografts, substitute bone materials and tendons, and regenerative tissues and fluids ('Biologics').
Pantheon manufactures integrated surgical kits that include plates, screws, and tools required for orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists to perform foot and ankle surgeries. MediSource Partners is a 10-year-old private company, currently contracted with over 25 vendors (including Pantheon Medical) for nationwide distribution of implants and devices for spine, hips, knees, foot, ankle, hand, and wrist surgeries. Additional product lines include biologics (blood, bone, tissue, and stem cells), durable medical equipment, and soft goods. The company also supplies kits to process bone marrow aspirates and platelet rich plasma biologics at the time of surgery. Fuse Medical is a publicly-traded manufacturer and supplier of a broad portfolio of specialty surgical products, including orthopedic implants, and a complete line of regenerative medicine products and biologics.
The acquisitions of Patheon, MediSource, and Fuse demonstrate the synergies among the NuGenerex family of subsidiary companies in advancing the Generex mission to deliver innovative end-to-end solutions to our healthcare partners, physicians, and patients. These companies' products will also be distributed through the NuGenerex Distribution Solutions MSO. Additionally, Anthony J. Dolisi, President & Chief Executive Officer of Olaregen, and Generex Chief Commercial Officer is working with renowned surgeons and wound care experts at a major medical center who are advisors on ExcellagenÒ. The advisors have developed a robotic surgical supply cabinet, and Mr. Dolisi is working with the NuGenerex partner companies to equip the cabinet with surgical plates, screws and tools for distribution as an integrated, computerized inventory management system for the operating room. The companies are also working on the development and distribution of new Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) products combining ExcellagenÒ with stem cells and exosomes.
Joe Moscato stated, "For the last two and a half years, our management team has worked diligently to transform Generex with a new vision for healthcare. We have been successful in building value for our investors, as clearly demonstrated by our recently reported financials, as well as by projections for the soon to close acquisitions, which when incorporated under Generex, will yield an estimated total of $98 million in shareholder equity. Following the end of this quarter, we plan to finalize the financing, complete the previously announced acquisitions of Pantheon Medical and MediSource Partners, followed by Fuse Medical in all-stock transactions, file an S1 Registration statement with the SEC, and file a request for up-list to a national exchange. It is also important to point out that the Fuse Medical acquisition will provide Generex with a public vehicle for the spin-out of our wholly-owned subsidiary NuGenerex Immuno-Oncology (previously Antigen Express). We are proud of the progress we have made to get Generex back on a national exchange, and we are excited about our future opportunities as we continue to execute on our commercial operations, growth plans, and strategic initiatives, as outlined in this announcement. I look forward to speaking with our investors on May 15."
