MiMedx Completes Acquisition of Surgical Biologics

MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MiMedx Group, Inc.  (OTC Bulletin Board: MDXG), an integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of patent protected biomaterial-based products, announced today the completion of the purchase of Surgical Biologics, a leader in the development of tissue processing techniques for creating implants for a variety of surgical indications from amnion membranes. The deal was originally announced on December 21, 2010.

This transaction expands MiMedx' innovative biomaterial offerings. "Now, we have three biomaterial platforms to offer to physicians and our distribution networks. The Surgical Biologics' proprietary tissue processing technology, Purion®, is a perfect complement to our existing HydroFix™ and CollaFix™ platform technologies. With this transaction, the Surgical Biologics tissue implants are now available to our sales reps and distributors. Combined with our HydroFix™ Vaso Shield and HydroFix™ Spine Shield products, the Surgical Biologics tissue implants give MiMedx a broader portfolio that immediately serves the demands and surgical preferences of practicing physicians," said Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO of MiMedx.

Surgical Biologics, which will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of MiMedx Group, is a pioneer in the development of the latest advances in processing amniotic membrane tissues that provide safe, reliable and effective implants. The Purion® tissue processing technology produces an implant that is minimally manipulated, and its tissues are in over 30,000 implants. The Purion® process follows strict guidelines for allograft processing established by the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") and the American Association of Tissue Banks ("AATB").

"As our CollaFix™ products receive their initial clearances from the FDA, and our HydroFix™ products continue to receive additional clearances and certifications, the combination of the Purion® tissue processing technology for soft tissue repair could give us offerings that are extremely complementary to our planned CollaFix™ and HydroFix™ products," added Petit.

MiMedx affirmed its previously announced expectations for the transaction will be accretive in 2011. MiMedx continues to project the 2011 revenues to be generated from the Surgical Biologics processed tissue to be in the range of $7 million.

About MiMedx

MiMedx is an integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of patent protected biomaterial-based products. The Company is successfully emerging from a development-focused start-up into a fully integrated operating company with an experienced team poised to capitalize on its science and technology to generate rapid sales growth and profitability.  Our mantra is "Repair, don't replace" because our biochemists, engineers, designers and physicians believe it is better to augment repair when possible rather than replace traumatized, but otherwise healthy tissues and structures.  Our platform technologies, HydroFix™ and CollaFix™, have a vast number of potential applications in treating traumatized tissue and structures and we are focused on commercializing multiple applications of both technologies. In parallel, we are seeking strategic relationships, in selective categories, to more rapidly commercialize our technologies.  HydroFix™ and CollaFix™ are trademarks of MiMedx Group, Inc.
