Branislav Vajdic, PhD, NewCardio's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The successful completion of this transaction, despite the difficult economic conditions and the challenges small companies face in securing additional growth capital, demonstrates the confidence management, our board of directors, and these accredited investors have in NewCardio's platform technology and the opportunities in front of us."

Accordingly, these securities may not be sold by investors in the United States, except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. Transfer and other disposition of the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and warrants are also subject to certain limitations that continue during months 7-12 after issuance, based on the trading price and volume of the Company's publicly traded common shares.

In the last 90 days, NewCardio has experienced a series of successes in adoption by key industry players in the life science market, including a top-five largest pharmaceutical company. The Company has entered into three master services agreements for the integration of QTinno(TM) into product and service offerings of two top-five largest Contract Research Organizations (CROs) as well as a cardiac safety and clinical trials service provider. Management expects to formalize additional agreements as the industry begins to realize the benefits and potential of QTinno(TM) in advancing the current cardiac safety analysis approaches. This expectation is supported by positive feedback from a recent presentation of the QTinno(TM) technology and validation results with the FDA.
