SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Miramar Labs, Inc. (OTCQB:KTLC), announced today its successful completion of a reverse merger with Miramar Technologies, Inc., the manufacturers of the miraDry® system which delivers microwave energy to non-invasively destroy sweat and odor glands in the underarm. The combined entity will trade on the OTC Markets solely focusing on the business of Miramar and has applied for the ticker symbol “MIRA”.
Miramar also announced today that it has completed a private placement with gross proceeds of approximately $9.0 million from the issuance and sale of 1.8 million shares of its common stock.

"With over 55,000 patients already treated with the miraDry® procedure in over 40 countries, we have firmly established that microwave technology is not only an acceptable treatment option, but it has become the treatment of choice in physician’s offices for the reduction of underarm sweat.”
