MiMedx Completes Divestiture Of Its Stability Biologics Subsidiary

Tuesday, October 03, 2017

MiMedx Group, Inc., the leading biopharmaceutical company developing and marketing regenerative and therapeutic biologics utilizing human placental tissue allografts and patent-protected processes for multiple sectors of healthcare, announced today that it has completed the previously communicated divestiture of the Company's subsidiary, Stability Biologics LLC (f/k/a Stability Inc.), back to the former stockholders of Stability Inc.

The transaction closed on September 30, 2017.  In the Company's press release of August 18, 2017, MiMedx reported that the consideration included a promissory note issued by Stability Biologics in the principal amount of $3.5 million in favor of MiMedx and a waiver by the former stockholders of Stability Inc. of all claims and rights to any Earn-Out consideration. In that release, the Company also reported that it expects to book a one-time gain on this transaction. The amount of the gain will be disclosed in the Company's third quarter of 2017 earnings release.

Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, "When we signed the definitive agreement for the divestiture, we communicated that if the transaction closed in the third quarter, we would maintain our full year revenue guidance, and even without the Stability Biologics revenue contribution in the fourth quarter, we were confident in our ability to meet our revenue guidance for the year. With the transaction's closing completed within our projected timeline, we remain very confident in that guidance."

Bill Taylor, President and COO, commented, "Our new 'private label' distribution agreement with Stability Biologics whereby we have retained the Stability Biologics key sales relationships for the spine and orthopedics areas of our surgical business, will also be an asset to the Company in our exclusive focus on our biopharma strategy. We are dedicating our efforts to continuing down the Investigational New Drug/Biologics License Application (IND/BLA) regulatory pathways for numerous new therapeutic applications of our human placental-based technology."
