CryoLife Makes Equity Investment in ValveXchange® Inc.
Date:7/7/2011

ATLANTA, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CryoLife, Inc. (NYSE: CRY), a leading tissue processing and medical device Company focused on cardiac and vascular surgery, announced today a $3.5 million equity investment in ValveXchange® Inc. ValveXchange is a private medical device company that was spun-off out of Cleveland Clinic to develop a lifetime heart valve replacement technology platform featuring exchangeable bioprosthetic leaflets.

Under the agreement, CryoLife will receive an approximate 19% initial equity ownership in ValveXchange as well as the right of first refusal to acquire ValveXchange during a period that extends through the completion of initial commercialization milestones, as well as the right to negotiate with ValveXchange for European distribution rights.  Further, CryoLife will make available up to $2.0 million to ValveXchange in additional debt financing through a revolving credit facility.

Steven G. Anderson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CryoLife, said, "We believe that the ValveXchange technology is an extremely compelling next generation heart valve approach. Its unique replaceable bioprosthetic leaflet design has the potential to eliminate repeat open heart surgeries from the long-term wear complications associated with current biological valves.  We believe that the system may resolve the long standing compromises between conventional mechanical and biological heart valves, potentially making this platform applicable to patients of all ages. This investment is well in-line with our strategy to focus on innovative products that could further leverage our direct sales force and their relationships with cardiac surgeons."

Larry Blankenship, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ValveXchange, said, "We are truly excited to have CryoLife as an investor in our company.  We believe this investment
