MYOS RENS Technology Announces Approval of $1.2 Million in NJEDA NOL Program Tax Credits
Net Proceeds of $1.1 Million in Non-dilutive Funding Expected
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology Inc. ("MYOS" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a biotherapeutics and bionutrition company and the owner of Fortetropin®, a proprietary bioactive composition derived from fertilized egg yolk that helps build lean muscle, announced today that it has received approval from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority ("NJEDA") to transfer approximately $1.2 million in available tax benefits.
"This non-dilutive funding will be used for general working capital without reducing investor value or adding debt to our balance sheet," said Joseph Mannello, Chief Executive Officer.
MYOS will be able to transfer its tax benefits through the NJEDA New Jersey Technology Business Tax Certificate Transfer Program, which provides a mechanism for approved New Jersey technology and biotechnology companies to sell their unused net operating loss carryovers and research and development tax credits for cash. The Company expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $1.1 million from the sale of the tax benefits by the end of 2018 or in January 2019.
"We appreciate the support of the NJEDA to promote innovation in the State of New Jersey and its commitment to growing businesses in the state. Last year we launched two clinical studies, including one at Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey. As we seek to conduct additional clinical studies, we will continue to look at opportunities in our home state," concluded Mr. Mannello.
