proprietary multi-coil rTMS System with pending 510(k) application,
and Multiple Therapeutic Clinical Studies in Neurological Diseases

common stock warrants. Endonovo will also be committed to paying RGN
a 10% royalty on the sale of RGN commercialized products and assuming
its outstanding Senior Secured Debt.
"We believe this acquisition will significantly increase Endonovo's
trajectory as we continue developing our non-invasive treatments for
acute inflammatory conditions in vital organs," stated Endonovo
Chairman and CEO, Alan Collier. "We are impressed with Rio Grande
Neuroscience's scientist team and their collective ability to build a
portfolio of cutting edge treatments utilizing BioElectronics
medicine. The combined company creates greater shareholder value for
both RGN and Endonovo and will further establish Endonovo at the
forefront of bioelectronic medicine."
RGN's portfolio of non-invasive brain stimulation technologies

neuro-inflammatory conditions, including traumatic brain injury,
acute concussion, post concussion syndrome and multiple sclerosis;

Electroceuticals(TM) technology. By combining our industry leading
R&D and clinical development team with Endonovo's technology and
management team to develop both of our non-invasive approaches to the
