Press Release: Miraculins : Luminor Medical Provides Corporate Update

MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / June 22, 2016 / Luminor Medical Technologies Inc. (TSXV: LMT) (the "Company" or "Luminor Medical") (formerly Miraculins Inc.) announces a corporate update which includes the plan for additional revenue streams in the diabetes sector, the amendment of its secured loans and the addition of Chief Executive Officer, Christian Sauvageau to the Board of Directors.The Company, through its newly formed subsidiary, MedPath Vitality Corp. ("MedPath Vitality®"), plans to launch a new program that will help overweight consumers with chronic disease risk such as diabetes to improve their overall health and wellness. The MedPath Vitality program is an evolving Health Management program, which offers timely, respectful, caring and personalized solutions to consumers seeking a path to a healthier life. Individuals who have been identified with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes through the Scout DS® device are potential candidates for the MedPath Vitality program. Launching of the MedPath Vitality program will depend upon the completion of an equity and or debt financing.The Company's Chief Executive Officer, Christian Sauvageau, who has also joined the Board of Directors of the Company, said, "MedPath Vitality® will offer overweight people suffering from type 2 diabetes an evidence-based, non-pharmacological, end-to-end solution. With the launch of MedPath Vitality® planned for the second half of 2016, the Company believes this initiative will play an important role in driving organic growth and shareholder value."As a part of the corporate restructure, the Company entered into a license agreement with its newly formed wholly owned subsidiary, Scout Assessment Corp. ("Scout Corp"), whereby all revenue related to the Company's Scout DS® diabetes screening device and the PreVu® assets including current contracts and future contracts will flow through Scout Corp. The Company has entered into amending agreements to transfer its CDN$1,611,334 in secured loans (the "Loans") from Luminor Medical to Scout Corp. The Loans are secured through a general security agreement against Scout Corp. and the security interest against Luminor Medical has been discharged. The maturity date has been extended from a current obligation to $300,000 due on December 31, 2018, $400,000 due on December 31, 2019, $600,000 due on December 31, 2020 and $311,334 plus all accrued interest and any other amounts due on December 31, 2021. The principal and interest payments will be accelerated based on payments of ten percent (10%) of all gross sales on Scout Corp Assets."The corporate restructure allows Luminor Medical to segregate its current debt and assets in a subsidiary where the Company plans to reduce the costs of building the Scout DS® and will look for partners or strategic investors to develop and expand its international sales. More than 387 million people globally are affected by diabetes and it is estimated that more than 40% are undiagnosed. In addition, 1.1 billion people are estimated to be pre-diabetic, with approximately 90% completely unaware. Scout DS® represents an opportunity to introduce the first non-invasive diabetes screening device in developing country such as China, India, Africa, and Latin America countries where a point-of-care device is needed," said Luminor Medical CEO, Christian Sauvageau.About Luminor Medical TechnologiesLuminor Medical Technologies is a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and commercializing non-invasive technologies for unmet clinical needs.
