CorMedix Inc. (“CorMedix”) (NYSE Amex: CRMD), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of cardiorenal disease, today announced its year end update and recent accomplishments.
CorMedix has been approved to receive approximately $500K of non-dilutive funding through the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s (“NJEDA”) tax credit transfer program from the sale of its New Jersey state tax losses. We expect to receive these funds in January 2012. We received approximately $300K of non-dilutive funding through this program in January 2011.
CorMedix continues to make progress towards CE marking approval for its Neutrolin ® product candidate. During the fourth quarter 2011, the Company successfully completed the stage 1 audit review process of its quality management system with TUV. TUV is an international certification body that specializes in the certification of quality systems. A stage 2 audit is scheduled for the first quarter of 2012. The stage 2 audit involves rigorous internal quality and compliance review of the Company’s quality management system by TUV.
“We are very pleased with our successful results and completion of our stage 1 audit by TUV as we continue to make progress in potentially achieving CE marking for Neutrolin ®. Additionally, our expected cash infusion of approximately $500K of non-dilutive funding, attributed to the NJEDA tax program from the sale of our New Jersey state tax losses will supplement our current cash balance,” stated, Richard M. Cohen, Executive Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer.Forward-Looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are subject to risks and uncertainties.
