AgaMatrix Completes $32 Million Financing Transaction with Prospect Capital



SALEM, N.H., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AgaMatrix, Inc. ("AgaMatrix"), a wholly owned subsidiary of AgaMatrix Holdings LLC, today announced it had entered a $32 million senior term loan facility with Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC) ("Prospect").

"The completion of this transaction with Prospect represents the next step in moving both companies forward," said John Alberico, President and CEO of AgaMatrix Holdings LLC. "We believe this transaction offers us the opportunity to more actively explore increased investment in both AgaMatrix and WaveForm over the next several years."

"There is great opportunity for our accurate, low cost AgaMatrix BGM technology to capture significant market share with the additional investment afforded by the Prospect transaction," said Thomas Bailey, CFO of AgaMatrix Holdings LLC. "We are also excited by the results of recent clinical trials supporting the development of WaveForm's novel continuous glucose monitoring technology, and are eager to pursue the tremendous market opportunity for WaveForm's product candidates as a fully independent company."

The completion of the senior term loan facility with Prospect represents the next step in the reorganization of AgaMatrix, Inc. into two separate businesses. AgaMatrix commenced steps to reorganize the Company in late 2016, in order to expand the range of strategic and financing opportunities available for its wide range of technologies and products.

Covington Associates LLC served as financial advisor with respect to the transaction, and Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian, LLP served as legal counsel.
