(“Guardion” or the “Company”). Accordingly, Guardion is now a public reporting company.
Michael Favish, the founder and CEO of Guardion, commented, “This news brings to a close a year of accomplishment for Guardion.

On November 8, 2016, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued patent number 9,486,136 for our MapcatSF® medical device.”
Mr. Favish continued, “In the upcoming year, we intend to begin the evaluation of potential acquisitions of synergistic and ‘value added’ technologies that may be interested in becoming part of a public company.

We also intend to take steps in 2017 to create a public market for our stock, and we are continuing to interview prospective market makers.”
Mr. Favish concluded, “Our focus will be on age-related eye disease and vision performance in 2017. We believe that Guardion is poised for significant growth, as we continue to address the growing need for early detection and intervention with respect to age-related macular degeneration and other retinal diseases. With the combination of our existing intellectual property portfolio, and strategically selected additional 564505v.2 technologies, Guardion is well-positioned to achieve its immediate and longer term objectives.”
