12/21/2010 6:42:19 AM

SAN DIEGO and SYDNEY, Australia, Dec. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- REVA Medical, Inc. (ASX:RVA - News) ("REVA" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its Initial Public Offering (the Offer) has closed and that the Company has raised A$85,000,003.

The Lead Manager to the Offer was boutique Sydney based Investment Bank, Inteq Limited. Southern Cross Securities Limited and Taylor Collison Limited acted as Lead Brokers.

The Offer was conducted by way of a US Prospectus filed with the United States Securities & Exchange Commission and an Australian Prospectus and Supplementary filed with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission.

REVA issued 7,727,273 new shares of common stock representing 77,272,730 CHESS Depositary Interests, or CDIs, priced at A$1.10 per CDI. The ratio of CDIs to common stock is 10:1.

REVA is also pleased to confirm that the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) has granted approval, subject to certain conditions, for REVA to list on the ASX and have its CDIs start trading from 11.30am on Thursday 23 December 2010 (AEDT). The ASX stock code is "RVA".

About REVA

REVA is a development stage medical device company focused on the development and eventual commercialisation of its proprietary, bioresorbable stent products. REVA's lead product, the ReZolve(TM) stent, combines REVA's proprietary stent design, with a proprietary polymer that is metabolised and cleared from the body. The ReZolve(TM) stent is designed to offer full x-ray visibility, clinically relevant sizing and a controlled and safe resorption rate. In addition, by early encapsulation of the stent in the artery tissue coupled with the loss of stent structure over time, the ReZolve(TM) stent may reduce the incidence of late forming blood clots, or thrombosis, a rare but serious problem associated with drug-eluting metal stents currently on the market. REVA is in the process of finalising the design of its ReZolve(TM) stent and intends to initiate a pilot human clinical trial in the second quarter of 2011.
