AgaMatrix Announces Reorganization, and Formation of WaveForm Technologies Inc.

SALEM, N.H. and WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AgaMatrix, Inc. today announced that it had concluded additional steps of a corporate reorganization, as approved by its shareholders and commenced in December 2016, to separate its business into two operating entities. The announced financing transaction with Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC) ("Prospect") concluded a significant step of the reorganization.

Upon the reorganization, a new holding company, AgaMatrix Holdings, LLC, was formed. AgaMatrix Holdings, LLC owns 100% of the capital stock of two operating businesses, AgaMatrix, Inc. ("AgaMatrix"), and WaveForm Technologies Inc. ("WaveForm"). The completed financing with Prospect enables AgaMatrix Holdings, LLC to facilitate capital plans for and investment in both businesses.

"With the completion of the Prospect transaction, we've initiated the remaining steps to complete the reorganization of our Company," said John Alberico, President and CEO of AgaMatrix Holdings LLC. "These next steps will enable each organization to focus on its strongest competencies and set an appropriate strategic direction. We are excited about the technology, products and services our two companies offer to the diabetes community and their caregivers."

AgaMatrix will continue to focus on its currently marketed blood glucose monitoring ("BGM") products and related technologies. AgaMatrix will manufacture and provide those products on a direct basis, as well as to the Company's major commercial partners. AgaMatrix products and technology include the recently launched Jazz Wireless 2 Bluetooth-enabled BGM product, the AgaMatrix Diabetes Manager software application, and an open source software development kit and HIPAA compliant cloud storage platform designed to facilitate easy and rapid development of Jazz Wireless 2 companion applications. AgaMatrix BGM products incorporate the Company's proprietary WaveSensetm technology. AgaMatrix BGM products have been shown in a number of independently conducted clinical studies to consistently provide more accurate measurements of blood glucose as compared to competing BGM platforms.

WaveForm Technologies to Develop and Commercialize Proprietary Continuous Glucose Monitoring and ?Closed Loop? Insulin Delivery Solutions

WaveForm Technologies will focus on the development of a proprietary continuous glucose monitoring ("CGM") platform, and related product opportunities. WaveForm's CGM technology was acquired in early 2016 from iSense CGM Inc. and Bayer Healthcare. The WaveForm CGM technology includes some of the earliest inventions and intellectual property relating to the continuous measurement of blood glucose, and offers several potential advantages as compared to currently marketed CGMs, including lower cost, longer potential sensor life and easy and painless needle insertion.

Prior to the acquisition, eight human clinical studies had been completed by Bayer Healthcare illustrating the technology's significant potential. WaveForm is currently conducting a series of additional human clinical trials designed to secure approval to market its CGM product candidate. WaveForm's clinical trials to date suggest its CGM technology provides measurements of blood glucose that are consistent with the accuracy and performance of currently marketed CGM products. WaveForm currently expects to receive CE mark approval for its CGM product candidate in the European Union in 2018, and is planning human clinical trials to support a PMA submission to seek approval to market and sell the system in the United States, potentially as early as 2019.
