Milestone Scientific Announces Appointment of Leslie Bernhard as Interim CEO

LIVINGSTON, NJ--(Marketwired - October 05, 2017) - Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE American: MLSS) (NYSE MKT: MLSS), a developer of painless and precise computerized drug delivery instruments, today announced the appointment of Leslie Bernhard, the Company's current Chairman of the Board, as Interim Chief Executive Officer. The appointment follows the resignation of Daniel Goldberger as President and Chief Executive Officer effective October 2, 2017. A formal search has commenced for a new CEO to focus on the medical opportunity. At the same time, the Board of Directors is also evaluating a variety of strategic options in the medical field in light of the Company's recent 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the CompuFlo® Epidural System.

Leslie Bernhard stated, "Following our recent 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), we have received extremely positive industry feedback regarding our CompuFlo® Epidural System. Both the board and senior management are laser focused on building a cost-effective global distribution network, which may include strategic partnerships, distribution agreements and/or licensing opportunities. Based on the outcome of these discussions, we will direct resources towards those opportunities that we believe provide the greatest value and return on capital for shareholders. I am fully confident in the ability of the current senior management team to execute on our near-term goals, and longer-term strategic vision to establish CompuFlo® as the standard-of-care in painless and precise drug delivery across the U.S., Europe and around the world."

Leonard Osser, Board Member, Founder and Director of China Operations, commented, "As Chairman of the company, Leslie has overseen the strategic direction of the company. She brings an impressive background and vision that is closely aligned with the objectives of the board. I am 100% confident in both her leadership abilities, as well as the near and long-term outlook for the business. This is a very exciting time for Milestone and we look forward to providing additional details on our ongoing strategic initiatives in the coming months."
