Units Issued in CorMedix (CRMD) IPO to Separate on May 13, 2010


5/10/2010 7:27:21 AM

BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CorMedix Inc., a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the treatment of cardiorenal disease, today announced that the units issued in CorMedix’s recent initial public offering will separate on May 13, 2010 instead of the currently scheduled separation date of May 23, 2010 following the determination by Maxim Group LLC, the representative of the underwriters of CorMedix’s initial public offering, that the earlier separation date is acceptable. Each unit consists of two shares of CorMedix’s common stock and a warrant to purchase one share of common stock.

Upon the commencement of trading on May 13, 2010, each unit will automatically separate into its underlying two shares of common stock and one warrant and the common stock and warrants will trade separately on NYSE Amex under the symbols “CRMD” and “CRMD.WS,” respectively. The units, which are currently traded under the symbol “CRMD.U”, will no longer be listed on NYSE Amex following the separation.
