ChroMedX Corp. Closes Oversubscribed Private Placement

Toronto, Ontario
September 22, 2014

ChroMedX Corp. (the “Company”) (CSE: CHX) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of CDN$614,500 through the issuance of 6,145,000 units (each a “Unit”) at a price of CDN$0.10 per Unit.  As a result of the Offering being oversubscribed, the board of directors increased the private placement offering from CDN$500,000 to CDN$650,000.  Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.25 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the closing date.

In connection with the Offering, the Company has paid an aggregate of $10,000 in cash commissions and has issued 100,000 broker warrants (“Broker Warrants”) to certain parties for introducing purchasers to the Company.  Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of CDN$0.10 for a period of 18 months from the closing date.

The securities issued in connection with the Offering will have a four month and one day hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws.

Use of Proceeds 

Proceeds will be used to continue the prototype development of the Company’s HemoPalmTM blood analysis system. 

HemoPalmTM is a blood analysis system consisting of a handheld analyser and a suite of disposable single use cartridges.  It provides a complete assessment of blood oxygenation and acid-base status replacing the blood analysis currently done in central laboratories with bench top units. The HemoPalm uses a combination of spectroscopy (light analysis) and electrochemical measurements similar to those used by bench top units thereby providing the same analytical capabilities.  In addition, the blood sample collection may optionally be taken from a finger prick as an alternative to an arterial sample taken with a syringe, which makes the technology applicable in markets outside of a clinical setting.

ChroMedX Corp. has retained Trapeze Capital Corp. to provide market-making services in accordance with Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE“) policies. Under the terms of the agreement between the Company and Trapeze dated September 22, 2014 (the “Agreement“), Trapeze will receive compensation of $5,000 per month plus HST and will not receive any Common Shares or options of the Company as compensation.

The security symbol, MNLIF, is part of the OTC Grey Market, where Monarch does not provide any reports and has no obligation to do so. There are no market makers under this symbol of this security. It is not listed, traded or quoted on any U.S. stock exchange or the OTC Markets. Trades in grey market stocks are reported by broker-dealers to their Self Regulatory Organization (SRO) and the SRO distributes the trade data to market data vendors and financial websites so investors can track price and volume. Since grey market securities are not traded or quoted on an exchange or interdealer quotation system, investor's bids and offers are not collected in a central spot so market transparency is diminished and best execution of orders is difficult.
