BEIJING, July 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:MDCE), a growing American company providing Western healthcare products distribution and children's healthcare services in China, is pleased to announce, in conjunction with its Hong Kong subsidiary, has secured over $800,000 in additional financing for further securitization of its Shenzhen health center project and general working capital.
Funding participation included the Company's joint venture partner, Ocean Wise International Industrial Limited ("Ocean Wise"), existing shareholders and new accredited investors. These financings were completed on significantly better terms for the Company than prior financings and included strong participation from loyal shareholders. A large portion of the funds will be maintained in a controlled account as part of the security bond for the Shenzhen location license. Additional financing for construction is currently being negotiated.
Luis Kuo, Chief Operations Officer, stated, "Securing such substantial funding validates our underlying direction with children's healthcare in China. We greatly appreciate the vote of confidence from our partners and shareholders in providing this funding which will enable us to make more concerted progress with the Shenzhen location."
The Company continues to attract strong investment and funding interest. Last week, a 6-month 10% convertible promissory note was issued in the amount of $29,500 to a current funding partner and $15,000 was raised through a securities purchase agreement from a new investor. Further equity financing is expected to continue in order to secure additional funding for general working capital purposes. The Company is committed to filing a registration statement to register the underlying shares purchased through securities purchase agreements as soon as practicable.
Over the past 60 days, steps have been taken to stabilize the balance sheet, reduce debt and expand healthcare activities. In the midst of a breakthrough that began last summer, a turnaround is being fueled by funding that previously was not available. Since the June 25th news release, which announced a reduction of debt of $325,000 and note re-negotiations of $155,000, a further reduction in debt in the amount of $90,250 and re-negotiated notes totaling $15,000 have occurred.
"We believe that these ongoing sustaining initiatives that we've implemented to reduce our debt and strengthen our balance sheet will improve our bottom line to provide financial stability, demonstrating that our strategic plan – which includes investments to build Western-style, state-of-the-art health facilities in China – have and will continue to produce positive results," stated Ning Wu, President of Medical Care Technologies Inc.
