Canadian Investor Grants Warnex Three Months to Repay $500K

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The genetic testing, molecular diagnostics, and lab services company Warnex said today it has been granted a waiver from an investor for the repayment of $500,000 it owes as a quarterly capital investment payment that was due today. 
Warnex said SIPAR, a Montreal-based investment company, has given it until April 1 to make this payment. Warnex also said the agreement is part of a strategy it announced last month to restructure its debts and reorganize its financing in order to stabilize its balance sheet.
Warnex CEO Mark Busgang said the agreement shows SIPAR’s “confidence in our ability to reorganize our financial instruments.”
