VANCOUVER, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Neovasc Inc. (TSXV: NVC) today announced that it has completed the final tranche of a previously announced non-brokered private placement. The aggregate gross proceeds of the financing totaled $1.537 million through placement of approximately 5.692 million units at a price of $0.27 per unit, comprised of a first tranche of $1.329 million announced January 28, 2010 and this second tranche of $208,000. The proceeds of the offering will be used primarily to fund the COSIRA trial, a multi-center clinical trial intended to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the company's Reducer(TM) product for treating refractory angina. The private placement is subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval. The securities issued pursuant to the offering will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance.

In addition, Neovasc announced today that on February 19, 2010 it granted a total of 1,220,000 options to directors and executive management of the company. These options have an exercise price of $0.355, equivalent to the Neovasc market price of $0.355 at closing on February 18, 2010. Of the issued options, 525,000 vest over a four-year period in accordance with the company's existing stock option plan, 95,000 options vest immediately and 600,000 vest after 12 months upon management achieving certain performance milestones established by the Board of Directors.
