TearLab Corporation (OTCQB: TEAR), a leader in Ocular Surface Diagnostics, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which Accelmed Partners II (AP-II) will acquire TearLab. In connection with the acquisition, AP-II has agreed to an investment of $25 million over two tranches that will occur in conjunction with the company delisting from the "over the counter" OTCQB market and TearLab and its senior secured lender, CR Group, has agreed to restructure the terms of the company's outstanding senior secured indebtedness. Post transaction, TearLab will be a private company and AP-II will be the controlling shareholder. Proceeds from the AP-II investment will be used to pay down a portion of TearLab's existing debt, and fund both organic and inorganic growth opportunities.
Any transaction would be subject to the approval of TearLab’s board of directors and stockholders, as well as other customary conditions contained in a definitive agreement. TearLab cautioned that no agreement has been reached. TearLab also noted that there cannot be any assurance that an agreement will be reached or, if an agreement is reached, that a transaction will be completed.
The submission covers the TearLab Discovery™ Platform and its single-use, disposable Test Card measuring the inflammatory biomarker, matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9). TearLab Discovery™ will also be capable of performing the Company’s current FDA cleared tear osmolarity test.
