Restructuring offers assurance of Rafarma Pharmaceuticals' improved financial future

Rafarma Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: RAFA) is pleased to announce the complete restructuring of its existing € 90,000,000.00 loan with VNeshconombank (VEBank), Russia's premier development bank. Terms and conditions of the restructured loan include a 3-year deferment, or holiday, on all principal and interest payments thus greatly enhancing the financial stability of the company.


Company CEO Dave Anderson stated, "We are gratified that VEBank have arranged this three year deferral and feel this offers a validation of management's progressive plan and meaningful support to Rafarma's stated objective of becoming a leading pharmaceutical company in Europe. This agreement significantly enhances your company's financial prospects."


The original loan from VEB was used in the construction of the company's 270,000 square foot state-of-the-art production facility in Terbuny. The company is in active production, supplying the Russian public health system, Russian military and is various stages of finalization for several private-industry production contracts.


For the last three years, the Russian Government has been highly focused on bolstering the development of the nation's domestic pharmaceutical industry. Rafarma's mission is to work under the auspices of aggressive federal initiatives to fast-track the modernization of Russia's pharmaceutical industry.
