Esposito, Chairman of the Board and interim CEO of Medizone International. “As we execute on our commercial plans to establish the AsepticSure system as the new gold standard for disinfection across a wide range of commercial applications, we are pleased to announce that Steve Meyer has joined our Board of Directors.

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 anti-oxidant gases (O3 and H202) to produce unique free radicals (H2O3 known as trioxidane) with higher anti-oxidant 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 Agreement Retaining EMA Partners as Advisor and Investment Bank

KALAMAZOO, MICH. March 1, 2017 – Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI), the developer of AsepticSure®, the only EPA cleared hospital room disinfection technology that combines ozone and hydrogen peroxide to achieve unprecedented disinfection of bacteria and viral pathogens, announced today that the Company has entered into a definitive agreement with EMA Partners retaining them as the Company’s advisor for financing and investment banking matters.

In late 2016, AsepticSure was cleared by the US Environmental Protection Agency for entry into the United States market.  The Company has been preparing for entry into a significant market that has a growing need for effective technologies that are capable of breaking the hospital acquired infection cycle.

“We are very pleased to announce that Medizone International has reached an agreement to have EMA Partners serve as our advisor and investment bank. EMA Partners and its elite group of partners and life-science advisors have a remarkable track record of helping to create shareholder value in promising life-science companies,” said David Esposito, Chairman and CEO of Medizone International. “As our team has completed several key milestones in the development of AsepticSure, we are preparing to scale our commercial operations in the United States and beyond.  We look forward to EMA Partners helping us realize the full potential of our business.”

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

AsepticSure’s South American Distributor Places Order

San Francisco, California, June 20, 2016: Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI). GYD S.A., Medizone’s exclusive distributor for our AsepticSure® hospital disinfection system in Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Peru, intends to offer both a service model and sales model for AsepticSure distribution. They are leading the regulatory approval process in their Territory. Exclusive distribution rights will be expanded to other countries in South America on a country-by-country basis as GYD S.A. achieves regulatory approvals and establishes channels of distribution.

With regulatory approval progressing, GYD S.A. has placed an initial order for the first three Generation III AsepticSure systems. Delivery is scheduled for early July.

While the roll out of AsepticSure distribution throughout South America will be gradual, the principals of GYD S.A. have been successful twice before using the same business model in establishing distribution channels throughout the continent. Given the acute need to address major hospital based infection issues on the continent, including evidence of super bugs in Rio with the up-coming Olympic Games, the ability to greatly reduce these infection threats in the health care community is gaining attention. Medizone believes GYD S.A.’s proven business model will be successful again.

AsepticSure Receives EU Patent Approval For its Bio-Terrorism Counter Measures Application

San Francisco, California, June 13, 2016 – Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB: MZEI) is pleased to announce that its unprecedented room disinfection technology, AsepticSure®, has been granted patent protection by the European Union Patent and Trademark Office (EU) for its patent application Bio-Terrorism Counter Measures Using Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide. The European Patent Office awarded patent number 252583B to this application, which provides a government counter measures response to a biological attack.

Recently, Acinetobacter baumannii, another highly infective pathogen of concern to certain US government interests as well as the government of South Africa, has been defeated by AsepticSure. To date, our AsepticSure technology has defeated every infective pathogen – viral or bacterial – that it has been tested against. Eliminating all infective pathogens from a disinfected space eliminates the infective reservoir, thus rendering the treated space harmless and safe.

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.

The AsepticSure® Hospital Disinfection System Introduced to South America

AsepticSure®, the only hospital disinfection system in the world that disinfection, dramatically reducing new rates of hospital acquired infections in the rooms treated, will be distributed in South America by GYD S.A.

asepticsure-aSantiago, Chile and San Francisco, California, November 17, 2015. Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB:MZEI) or Medizone, manufacturer of the AsepticSure® Hospital Disinfection System, and GYD S.A. today announced that they have entered into an agreement for the introduction and distribution of AsepticSure® in South America (the “Distribution Agreement”). Medizone granted GYD S.A exclusive distribution rights for the AsepticSure® system in Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Peru. GYD S.A. will lead the regulatory approval process throughout South America and exclusive distribution rights will be expanded to other countries in South America on a country-by-country basis as GYD S.A. achieves regulatory approvals and establishes channels of distribution.

GYD S.A. Investment in Medizone International

In connection with the negotiation and execution of the Distribution Agreement, GYD S.A. and three other investors in Chile have invested $1 million in Medizone. The funding included the sale of 10,000,000 shares of Medizone common stock at a price of $0.10 per share. In addition, the investors acquired stock purchase warrants exercisable for one year to purchase an additional $1 million of common stock. The exercise price of the warrant shares is fixed at a 40% discount to market at the time of the exercise, however, in the event the warrants are exercised on or before March 30, 2016, the exercise price per share will be capped at the lesser of 40% discount to market or $0.25 per share. There is a one-year lock up on the shares acquired in the initial stock purchase.

Medizone’s CEO, Edwin Marshall commented, “GYD S.A.’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Gerardo Guzman Hargous, is a graduate of Pontificia Universidad Catolica and holds an MBA from the University of Chicago. Mr. Hargous has a successful history of starting businesses in Chile and expanding them throughout South America. For example, he is the founder of GMS Productos Gráficos Ltda. (“GMS”), a graphics business in Chile. After building the business successfully for 20 years, in 2003 Mr. Hargous sold GMS to Antalis Group. GMS also had the representation of Fuji S.A. a division of Fuji, Japan. Later, he founded and expanded Best Way Group, a pest control company, which he sold in 2014 to Rentokil Initial plc, traded on the London Stock Exchange. In addition to his entrepreneurial activity in South America, Mr. Hargous also taught options trading at the University of Chile in Santiago.

“In addition to GYD providing Medizone International a single point of contact for regulatory approval and distribution in South America, Mr. Hargous will add to the company’s global strategic strength by assuming an advisory role to our board of directors. Medizone welcomes him as a strategic partner to its global AsepticSure distribution plan,” added Mr. Marshall.

AsepticSure Update: June 25, 2015

Screenshot 2015-06-24 19.51.36

What has proven to be a long and challenging regulatory journey appears to be approaching its final destination as Medizone has filed what is expected to be its final EPA submission.

What places AsepticSure® in a league by itself lies not only in its ability to achieve remarkable levels of room disinfection within a busy time-sensitive hospital environment, but the fact that it utilizes a new “green” technology that meets all international safety standards without damaging the environment or leaving residual chemicals behind. It achieves this in both a time and cost-effective manner. The fact that AsepticSure comfortably meets the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limit TWA (PEL-TWA), the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) Threshold Limit Value TWA (TLV®-TWA), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) is noteworthy. The ultimate approval by the EPA as a room disinfectant will bring this system through the gates to continent-wide commercial success. AsepticSure establishes a previously unobtainable level of disinfection efficacy and is proving to be a time efficient technology inside hospital workflows. Data to date demonstrates significantly reduced new infection rates, resulting in economic savings to the medical system through avoidance of the treatment costs associated with hospital acquired infections (HAI).

Working in conjunction with highly experienced regulatory advisors from Washington and Virginia, our team at Innovation Park, Queen’s University believe we have successfully met all of the registration requirements of the agency, including those challenges referred to in the May 6th shareholder communication posted on our website.

EPA now has 21 days to conduct a preliminary review for any possible deficiencies, after which the formal review will commence.

The Canadian National Infection Prevention and Control Conference

The Canadian National Infection Prevention and Control Conference

June 14 – 17 held in Victoria, BC

Dr. Michael Shannon telephoned me this past Monday evening from the dinner sponsored by Medizone in Victoria at the Canadian National Infection Prevention and Control Conference.  Dr. Shannon reported that the two presentations given earlier that day by Dr. Dick Zoutman, the first on AsepticSure’s success in eradicating C.difficile at Trenton Memorial Hospital and the second on the National Research Council Canada’s confirmation of AsepticSure success in defeating viral pathogens, were both exceptionally well received.

The dinner that followed was attended by 21 senior leaders in infection control from across Canada and in keeping with the Conference theme, “Surfing the Waves of Change”, AsepticSure® was presented as a potential tsunami in the battle against Hospital Acquired Infection.

Senior infection control experts from provincial ministries, hospitals, provincial ambulance organizations and several well-known universities were present.  

Drs. Michael Shannon and Dick Zoutman both spoke at the dinner.  Never before have so many key health care professionals gathered in the same room to learn about the breakthroughs AsepticSure continues to demonstrate.

We are convinced that AsepticSure is creating, what Thomas Kuhn in his book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, described as a paradigm shift in scientific understanding. In this instance, revolutionizing the understanding of what is possible in hospital disinfection. Like all other “disruptive innovations”, a tidal wave of associated changes must be accepted as new systems and approaches take hold to realize the overall goal of a safer pathogen free hospital environment.

Until very recently, those in the world of science and medicine believed that they were doing everything possible to clean the health care environment. Best practices, including double cleanings, the newest wipes and solutions, have all become common place in most hospitals, yet infection rates have either remained the same or continued to increase while treatment has continued to become more problematic as antibiotic resistance increased.

Health care professionals in Canada are now realizing that for the first time a pathogen free room can be a reality, courtesy of AsepticSure.
