(“Biosensors”) and Shandong Weigao Group Medical Polymer Company Limited (“Weigao”) announced the restructuring of the shareholding in JW Medical Systems Ltd (“JWMS”) whereby Biosensors acquires the remaining 50% of JWMS from Weigao. After completing this transaction, JWMS will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Biosensors.

Mr. Yoh-Chie Lu, Chairman of Biosensors said, “Since commercialization of its drug-eluting stents (“DES”) in early 2006, JWMS has become one of the top suppliers of the local DES market in China. This acquisition demonstrates a joint dedication between Biosensors and Weigao to foster stronger relationships as long-term strategic partners. The market for DES continues to grow rapidly in China and obtaining full ownership of JWMS,

Biosensors will instantaneously become a stronger player in this vital market. At the same time, with Weigao as a strategic shareholder of Biosensors and our unique proprietary drug and polymer technologies, we are set to become a major DES supplier in China for many years to come.“
