Rosetta Genomics Reaches Settlement Agreement with Sanra Laboratories in Connection with Previous Sale of Parkway Clinical Laboratories
Date:4/18/2013

PHILADELPHIA and REHOVOT, Israel, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosetta Genomics Ltd. (NASDAQ: ROSG), a leading developer and provider of microRNA-based molecular diagnostics, today announced that the Company has negotiated a settlement with Sanra Laboratories ("Sanra") in connection with the previous sale of Parkway Clinical Laboratories ("Parkway") by Rosetta Genomics to Sanra.  Under the agreement, Sanra will undertake their best efforts to pay Rosetta Genomics $625,000, in addition to all sums previously paid by them, for total consideration of all their obligations according to the stock purchase agreement entered into in May 2009, of which amount Sanra has already paid $10,000 as an upfront payment. 

On July 22, 2008, through Rosetta Genomics Inc., the Company purchased all of the shares of Parkway Clinical Laboratories, Inc., a privately held Pennsylvania corporation owning a CLIA-certified laboratory.  With its CLIA certification, Parkway helped Rosetta Genomics to obtain CLIA certification for its laboratory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Parkway remained an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary until May 18, 2009, when the Company sold Parkway to Sanra for up to $2.5 million, to be paid as a fixed percentage from the revenues over six years. 

About miRview® Testing Services
miRview® assays are a series of microRNA-based diagnostic testing services offered by Rosetta Genomics. miRview® mets² accurately identifies the primary tumor type in primary and metastatic cancer including cancer of unknown or uncertain primary (CUP). miRview® meso diagnoses mesothelioma, a cancer connected to asbestos exposure.  miRview® lung accurately identifies the four main subtypes of lung cancer using small amounts of tumor cells. miRview® kidney accurately classifies the four most common kidney tumors: clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC), papillary RCC, chromophobe RCC and oncocytoma.  miRview® assays are designed to provide objective diagnostic data; it is the treating physician's responsibility to diagnose and administer the appropriate treatment.  In the U.S. alone, Rosetta Genomics estimates that 200,000 patients a year may benefit from the miRview® mets² assay, 60,000 from miRview® meso, 65,000 from miRview® kidney and 226,000 patients from miRview® lung. The Company's assays are offered directly by Rosetta Genomics in the U.S., and through distributors around the world. For more information, please visit www.mirviewdx.com.
