Stocks in this article: INNV

LA JOLLA, Calif., March 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., ("Innovus Pharma") www.innovuspharma.com (OTCBB:INNV) today announced that it received a $0.5M funding commitment from its President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Bassam Damaj.

In connection with this commitment, the Company's independent registered public accounting firm has issued its audit opinion on the Company's 2012 and 2011 financial statements free of a "going concern" qualification.

Damaj stated, "This financing commitment is an important step in the execution of the Company's growth plans. It represents my personal belief in the Company's growing pipeline of products and its future. I believe potential commercial partners will respond favorably to this commitment and to the associated removal of the "going concern" qualification from our audit opinion."

The funding commitment takes the form of an amendment to the convertible debenture previously entered into between Dr. Damaj and the Company. Under the amendment, Dr. Damaj agrees to provide up to $0.5M to the Company (including amounts previously provided) if the Company has insufficient liquidity from other sources to meet payment obligations arising in the ordinary course of business. The funding commitment terminates January 1, 2014 or earlier if the Company raises net proceeds of at least $500,000 in other financing transactions. For more information, please see the Company's Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 19, 2013.
