Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 10, 2024) - NuGen Medical Devices Inc. (TSXV: NGMD) (the "Company" or "NuGen") a leading developer of needle-free devices to administer therapeutics subcutaneously, is pleased to announce its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to $10,000,000 principal amount secured convertible debentures (the "Convertible Debentures"). The Convertible Debentures shall mature on the date that is five (5) years from the closing of the Offering (the "Maturity Date") and shall bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum payable on the Maturity Date in arrears. The Convertible Debentures will be secured by a first ranking security interest in all of the present and after-acquired property and assets of the Company pursuant to a general security agreement which shall include standard default conditions customary for a transaction of this nature.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Offering for working capital purposes, expansion of production and fulfillment of increasing sale purchase orders globally.

At any time prior to the close of business on the last business day immediately preceding the Maturity Date, the holder shall have the right, at the holder's option, to convert all or a portion of the outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Debentures into units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.075 per Unit. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $0.12 per Common Share for a period of five years from the closing of the Offering.

The issuance of the Convertible Debentures pursuant to the Offering will be (and, if applicable, the issuance of the underlying Units upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures shall be) completed on a private placement and prospectus exempt basis.

Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance and the resale rules of applicable securities legislation.

It is anticipated that Sol-Millennium Medical Group or its affiliates ("Sol-M") will purchase that number of Convertible Debentures that, if and when converted into Units, would result in Sol-M holding greater than 20% of the then issued and outstanding Common Shares thereby making Sol-M a new Control Person (as defined in the policies of the TSXV) of the Company under applicable securities laws. Pursuant to the policies of the TSXV, the creation of a new Control Person of the Company requires shareholder approval. Consequently, the Company intends to obtain shareholder approval at its upcoming annual and special meeting of its shareholders to be held on August 20, 2024.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
