SEATTLE, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VentriPoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("VentriPoint") is pleased to announce that it intends to complete, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, a private placement of up to 8,000,000 units (the "Units") of VentriPoint to be issued at a price of $0.25 per Unit for aggregate proceeds of $2,000,000.

Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of VentriPoint (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant").

Such compensation will include a cash commission and agents options and/or warrants, subject to receipt of approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

The proceeds of this transaction will be used to complete the development and external testing of VentriPoint's initial release of its VentriPoint Diagnostic system, and support the company through the approval process and the commencement of marketing and selling of the VentriPoint Diagnostic system in Canada and Europe.

The private placement, including any applicable finder's fees, are subject to regulatory acceptance, and the Common Shares and the Warrants to be issued will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of issuance, pursuant to applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
