Vision-Sciences, Inc. Announces Completion Of $10.5 Million Common Stock Private Placement; $2.7 Million In Revenue For The Third Quarter Of Fiscal 2011

ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Jan. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vision-Sciences, Inc., (Nasdaq:VSCI) (Vision-Sciences), announced today that it entered into common stock purchase agreements with a limited number of private investors for the sale of 7 million shares of Vision-Sciences' Common Stock at a purchase price of $1.50 per share, for a total cash consideration of $10,500,000. Vision-Sciences intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement for general corporate purposes.

Vision-Sciences also announced $2.7 million in net sales for its third quarter of fiscal 2011, ended December 31, 2010, a sequential growth rate of 17%, or $0.4 million, over net sales of $2.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Year-over-year net sales grew $0.1 million, or 4%, from $2.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2010; pro forma for the exclusion of sales to Medtronic, net sales grew $1.1 million, or 66%, from $1.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2010. (Effective April 1, 2010, Medtronic no longer served as distributor of Vision-Sciences' ENT, or "ear, nose and throat," endoscopes). 

Lewis C. Pell, Chairman of Vision-Sciences, stated, "I am extremely pleased that Vision-Sciences was able to raise over $10 million in this market. We believe the success of this private placement demonstrates investor enthusiasm for Vision-Sciences' progress, represented by over 65% growth over last year's third quarter (pro forma for the exclusion of sales to Medtronic) and by the Company's success in selling to leading teaching hospitals and other large accounts."

Vision-Sciences expects to issue results for the third quarter and first nine months of its fiscal year 2011, ended December 31, 2010, during the week of February 7, 2011, at which time the Company plans to host a conference call to discuss these results.
