Cohera Medical Secures $16.1 Million in Series B Financing
Date:10/17/2008

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Cohera Medical Inc. today announced it has secured $16.1 million in a Series B financing for the ongoing development of TissuGlu(R), a novel surgical adhesive for application in plastic surgery.

The financing, which was led by Bradford Capital Partners, included participation from existing investors led by Kern Whelan Capital, LLC. The angel financing provides the company with sufficient capital to advance TissuGlu into clinical trials, which are expected to begin early next year.

"Kern Whelan Capital is delighted to support this second round of financing by doubling our initial investment," said Jay Kern, operating partner. "We believe there is a huge market potential in many applications for Cohera's products."

"TissuGlu has great promise in tummy tuck and other plastic surgery indications," said Marty Calihan, partner, Bradford Capital Partners. "Moreover, the company's core technology has significant potential for other uses, including mesh fixation and orthopedic applications. We view Cohera Medical's unique lead product and technology chassis as having tremendous potential to meet multiple needs of surgeons and their patients for which there are few options today."

Patrick Daly, chief executive officer of Cohera Medical, said "Our closing of this significant angel financing round in the current economic environment is a testament to the potential of our surgical adhesive technology. The financing gives us the capital to move forward with our clinical program for TissuGlu and affords us the opportunity to continue development of our other products."
