RICHLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/13 -- IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR), specializing in the development, manufacture, and sale of isotope-based medical products and devices for the treatment of cancer and other malignant diseases primarily in the United States, today announced the re-pricing of an underwritten offering of units of its common shares, convertible preferred shares and short-term "greenshoe" warrants. Gross proceeds in connection with the revised offering amount to approximately $3.7 million. The offering is being anchored by a healthcare focused institutional investor. The offering is expected to close on or before August 30, 2013.

In connection with the offering, the Company will be issuing approximately 3.8 million shares of common stock at a price of $0.535 per share and shares of preferred stock convertible into approximately 3.1 million shares common stock with a conversion price of $0.535. The Company will also be issuing "greenshoe" warrants to purchase approximately 5.6 million shares of common stock. The greenshoe warrants shall have a term of two years, have an exercise price equal to $0.72, and will be exercisable six months after closing of the offering. Additional funding of approximately $4.1 million will occur if all warrants are exercised at $0.72 per share.

The terms of the "greenshoe" warrants have been re-priced from an exercise price of $0.55 per share to $0.72 per share (the closing price of the Company's common stock on August 27, 2013), their exercise extended by six months, and require the Company to submit to shareholders within the next six months a proposal to decrease the term of the warrants to a total of eighteen months and decrease the exercise price from $0.72 to $0.535. In exchange for this concession, the Company agreed to decrease the price of the common units from $0.55 to $0.535 resulting in a decrease in gross proceeds of approximately $100,000, from approximately $3.8 million to $3.7 million.

Dwight Babcock, CEO, clarified that the re-priced deal now allows the shareholders at IsoRay's upcoming annual meeting to decide whether it is better to shorten the life of the warrants by six months in exchange for a decrease in exercise price.

Maxim Group LLC is acting as Sole Book Runner in connection with the offering.
