Newsfile Corp.



Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 29, 2014) - Gemoscan Canada, Inc. (TSXV: GES) (MUN: 1GE) ("Gemoscan" or the "Company"), today reported operational and financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014. In this press release, all dollar amounts are expressed in Canadian currency and results are reported in accordance with International Accounting Standards 34 'Interim Financial Reporting' using account policies consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards.

The current financial results reflect the Company's previously announced acquisition of Physiomed Kennedy Inc., a multidisciplinary paramedical clinic, and consolidate relevant quarterly financial results therefrom. Also included are three months of management fees generated from the previously-announced definitive agreement with the paramedical clinic, Physiomed Yorkdale Inc., to provide operational management services to it.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, total revenues were $675,621, representing an increase of approximately 81% from $373,894, versus the comparative three-month period in fiscal 2014.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014 the Company posted a net loss for the quarter of $268,866. The loss represents an increase of approximately 14% from the comparative-period loss of $235,446. This loss stemmed primarily from weaker than expected clinic performance during the period, compounded by higher service, marketing, and general and administrative costs for the quarter.

The Company further reported an increase to cash used for operating activities for the three months ended June 30, 2014, of $165,702 versus $146,944, for the comparative period in fiscal 2014; driven primarily by the net loss for the current period.

As a further update to the Company's news release of May 28, 2014, the Company has provided the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") with its preliminary submission with respect to its proposed acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding common shares of 2275518 Ontario Inc. and a related company, jointly known as Abira Healthcare; and it continues to undertake due diligence and draft the necessary agreements and disclosure documents pursuant to the same.

Also, in addition to the Company's news release of May 8, 2014, the Company continues to suspend its interest where its prior announced proposed acquisition of a 100% interest in seven of Novo Healthnet's paramedical clinics is concerned.

The Exchange has in no way passed upon the merits of the proposed transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this press release .
