Medizone International Announces a Retirement from the Board of Directors

June 21, 2017 – Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI) (Kalamazoo, MI) the developer of AsepticSure, a revolutionary disinfection technology that combines ozone and hydrogen peroxide to achieve unprecedented kill rates of bacteria and viral pathogens in a wide range of commercial applications including healthcare, biodefense, and public health preparedness, announced today that Daniel D. Hoyt has retired from the Board of Directors.

Effective June 21, 2017, Daniel D. Hoyt will retire from the Board and all positions within the company.

“On behalf of our employees, the board, and shareholders, I want to thank Dan for his leadership and commitment to the Company. Since January 2002, Dan has been an active member of the board and he has given a full measure to support our business and our people through the amazing journey of the company,” commented David Esposito. “We wish Dan all the best as he moves into this next chapter of life with his family.”

Medizone continues to execute on plans to establish AsepticSure as a superior solution worldwide to achieve unprecedented kill rates of bacteria and viral pathogens in a wide range of commercial applications including healthcare, biodefense, and public health preparedness. The near term priority market is the United States while the Company continues to support sales and distribution channels in several other markets across the globe.

About Medizone International, Inc.

Founded initially in 1986 to develop treatments for lipid-enveloped viruses, Medizone International, Inc. shifted focus in 2007 to develop a superior disinfectant technology. The company developed the AsepticSure system to combine oxidative compounds (O3 and H202) to produce a unique mixture of free radicals (H2O3 known as trioxidane) with much higher oxidative potential than ozone or hydrogen peroxide alone. After securing broad IP protection for the use of trioxidane for both healthcare facility disinfecting systems and bioterrorism applications, the company released its AsepticSure system for use in Canada, and several other global markets.

Medizone International Announces Next Steps on AsepticSure®

Medizone International prepares plans to submit AsepticSure for FDA approval as a medical device

Kalamazoo, Michigan, Friday, April 7, 2017 — Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI) announced that in a scheduled conference call late Thursday, April 6, 2017, with representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), the FDA had advised the Company that they believed AsepticSure should be classified as a medical device.  The FDA representatives recommended that the Company submit a Premarket Notification (“PMN” or “510(k)”) to the FDA and invited Company representatives to schedule follow up meetings to discuss the best approach for introduction of the AsepticSure technology into the U.S. market.  Section 510(k) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) requires device manufacturers who must register, to notify FDA of their intent to market a medical device at least 90 days in advance. This is known as Premarket Notification – also called PMN or 510(k). This allows FDA to determine whether the device is equivalent to a device already placed into one of the three classification categories.  Specifically, medical device manufacturers are required to submit a premarket notification if they intend to introduce a device into commercial distribution for the first time or reintroduce a device that will be significantly changed or modified to the extent that its safety or effectiveness could be affected. Such change or modification could relate to the design, material, chemical composition, energy source, manufacturing process, or intended use.

In November 2016, Medizone received clearance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) (Reg. No. 90607-3) to market AsepticSure ozone disinfectant formula for use for disinfection of non-porous surfaces in hospitals, clinics, hotels, sporting venues and in the food industry, long-term care facilities, and other critical infrastructures.  However, the FDA has indicated that it also believes it has jurisdiction over AsepticSure as a “medical device”.  The Company does not agree with the FDA’s position, however the Company has determined to work with its advisors on a response to the FDA to establish the most efficient route to gain regulatory approval of AsepticSure as a medical device under the FDCA.

The Company has informed the FDA that it will not market AsepticSure in the US under the previously announced EPA clearance until it has also obtained 510(k) clearance or other appropriate approvals from the FDA.

Medizone will continue to support commercial operations in markets outside the United States, which are not affected by this decision.  In addition to the EPA clearance, the AsepticSure technology has received market approval from regulators for use and distribution in Canada, New Zealand, and Chile, and is currently seeking approvals in other countries in South America, Europe and Asia.

This Press Release may contain certain forward looking statements that could involve substantial risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the results of ongoing clinical studies, economic conditions, product and technology development, production efficiencies, product demand, competitive products, competitive environment, successful testing and government regulatory issues. Additional risks are identified in the company’s filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

AsepticSure Hospital Disinfection System Achieves EPA Approval For US Market Entry

screen-shot-2016-11-18-at-10-08-25-amSan Francisco, California, November 21, 2016 – Medizone International, Inc. (The Company) (OTCQB: MZEI) is pleased to announce that its unprecedented hospital room disinfection technology, AsepticSure®, has been given a green light for US market entry by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

In August, Medizone announced that Cogmedix Inc., the Company’s manufacturing partner, had obtained EPA company and establishment numbers to serve as a manufacturer for the AsepticSure System. Cogmedix already held FDA medical device manufacturing status. That EPA Registration allows Cogmedix to ship AsepticSure systems to hospitals and other users in the United States. Today, we are pleased to announce that EPA has granted a Registration number for the AsepticSure specific hydrogen peroxide catalyst used in the system. The AsepticSure Oxidative Catalyst is EPA approved for use in hospitals, clinics, food industry, sporting venues, and hotels to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces at a 1.4% concentration.

Following the Christmas holiday period, Medizone anticipates entering into a brief trial/demonstration period in a major US hospital to confirm the disinfection results previously achieved in Canada are easily repeatable.

The Company is very optimistic that EPA approval for US market entry signals a turning point for our commercial development program as we move into 2017.`

Medizone International, Manufacturer of AsepticSure, Closes Additional Investment

San Francisco, CA October 27, 2016. Medizone International, Inc. (The Company) (OTCQB: MZEI) manufacturers of the un-paralleled AsepticSure® Hospital Disinfection System, announces its South American distribution partner and investment group GYD S.A. operating in South America under the name BioAsepsisCorp., have completed a second investment of $1 million dollars. In November of 2015 GYD invested an initial $1 million dollars for Medizone stock with a one-year lock up. Warrants were issued for the purchase of additional shares under that agreement. The warrants have now been exercised to complete the second million-dollar investment in the Company by GYD S.A.

GYD currently holds AsepticSure distribution and service rights for Chile where they have recently achieved regulatory approval and are now commencing operations. Additional countries GYD holds rights to and expects to expand service into as regulatory approvals are achieved include Peru, Colombia, Brazil and Argentina.

Argentina is a new addition to the original distribution agreement. GYD also obtained additional warrants to purchase a third one-million dollars of Company stock, restricted under SEC Rule 144. The newly issued warrants may not be exercised prior to January 31, 2017 and have a one-year window to exercise from that date, with an expiration of January 30, 2018. Additional details of the investment may be found in the Company’s filing on SEC Form 8K.

Medizone Progress Report

South American and US milestone regulatory events achieved
Additional patents granted
Shareholder Meeting delay due to minority shareholder proxy proposals

 

IMG_1778

August 25, 2016

Dear Shareholders,
I would like shareholders to know that management with support from our entire Board of Directors has been working diligently and faithfully to achieve the final steps necessary to see Medizone’s AsepticSure® system achieve not only regulatory approval, but successful US market acceptance.

Regulatory Approvals

Our distribution partners in South America, GYD, S.A. have recently confirmed they have now achieved ISP regulatory approval for AsepticSure into Chile, their first country of entry in S.A. ISP is the Chilean equivalent to EPA. Of the three initial systems purchased by the distributor, two are in their possession and the third is scheduled to be shipped the end of this week.

In the US, the EPA approval process has also been progressing. Cogmedix, Medizone International’s contract manufacturing partner, has obtained EPA company and establishment numbers to serve as a manufacturer for the AsepticSure delivery systems. Cogmedix already held FDA medical device manufacturing status. These numbers allow EPA to track the AsepticSure delivery system from the manufacturer to the user facility and allow Cogmedix to ship AsepticSure systems directly to hospitals in the US. This is an important step closer to market entry in the US.

Medizone’s hydrogen peroxide supplier also has an EPA registration that allows them to ship the product to users.

IMG_1780These recently achieved milestone events signal the beginning of US market entry for AsepticSure. In-hospital trials designed to replicate the success AsepticSure obtained at Trenton Memorial Hospital and Bellville General Hospital in eliminating new HAI cases for significant periods of time from AsepticSure disinfected Isolation rooms, will signal the beginning of what we believe will prove to be the successful commercial ascendance of AsepticSure in the United States. The vastly superior efficacy of AsepticSure over any competing technology, demonstrated in a highly prestigious US hospital, should signal a commercial turning point for AsepticSure leading to product acceptance and profitability for Medizone International.

 

EU Patents

On the patent front, the Company also continues its history of success. The EU patent office has granted our Health Care Patent Application. The Company is now registering coverage under the EU treaty for Germany, France and the United Kingdom. This EU patent grant follows the recent issuance of patent coverage in the EU for our bio-terrorism counter measures application, which has been registered in the same countries.

 

Annual General Meeting of Shareholders

As disclosed by the Company in its current report on Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on August 19, 2016, the Company has moved the scheduled date of its Annual Meeting of Shareholders from September 15th to December 15th.

The Board has established December 15, 2016 as the new date for the Annual Meeting, and established September 30, 2016 as the record date for stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the meeting.

The decision to postpone the Annual Meeting follows receipt by the Company of certain stockholder requests to include additional proposals for vote at the meeting. The stockholder proposals were received by the Company after the filing of the Company’s preliminary proxy materials with the SEC, and just prior to the mailing of the Company’s Notice of the Annual Meeting for September 15, 2016.

Pursuant to regulations of the SEC, the Company is corresponding with the stockholder proponents, and with the SEC, regarding the proposals, including with respect to issues of legality of the proposals and the Company’s alternatives for inclusion, exclusion, or revision of the proposals. In light of the proposals received, the postponement of the Annual Meeting is necessary to ensure the Company can meet applicable meeting notice deadlines and allow the Board and the proponents adequate time to evaluate the proposals and correspond with the SEC. While the Company considers the delay caused by the stockholder proposal issues unfortunate, the Company expects to be in a position to file, and mail or post to the Internet, updated proxy materials for the benefit of all Company stockholders, as required, for the December 15, 2016 meeting date.

The Company’s proxy statement filed with the SEC included a request to increase the authorized common stock vault from 395M authorized to 500M authorized in order to be assured there are shares available to secure the capital funding required to complete US market entry, initiate an increase in production and see AsepticSure through as not only the finest room disinfection system in the world, but one that is commercially profitable. Although the meeting originally scheduled on September 15 to consider that proposal has been postponed to December 15, 2016, the Company anticipates that the same proposal to increase its shares of common stock will remain in the proxy materials to be circulated for the December 15 meeting.

Under the business corporation statues of the State of Nevada applicable to the Company, the Company must obtain greater than 50% approval of all issued and outstanding shares in order to amend its Articles of Incorporation to increase the vault. The ability of the Company to fund operations and increase production is considered vital by our management team and Board of Directors. Without an increase in available shares to achieve the necessary funding to achieve these goals, the Company’s options become extremely limited. When a new proxy statement is circulated to the Company’s shareholders in connection with the December 15th meeting, it will still contain this Company proposal for an increase in share authorization to enable the adequate funding of the Company through full commercialization. We strongly urge shareholders to support this increase.

Best regards,

Edwin G. Marshall
Chairman of the Board
Chief Executive Officer

About Medizone

Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI) is a provider of patented low dose ozone based disinfection systems. The AsepticSure® hospital disinfection system, which is used in disinfecting hospital isolation rooms, surgical suites, emergency rooms, and intensive care units, as well as other enclosed spaces, such as gym locker rooms, laboratories, and veterinary clinics, establishes a new gold standard in disinfection technology by completely eliminating infective pathogens from the entire space treated. By eliminating the reservoir of infective pathogen, the treated space then remains safe until another infective pathogen is reintroduced from the outside. This breaks the chain of reinfection that hospitals globally continue to suffer through today. AsepticSure greatly reduces operational costs through the savings associated with treating far fewer HAIs.
