Mirus Capital Advisors announced today that it has provided a fairness opinion to the board of RedPath Integrated Pathology, Inc.

RedPath, a molecular diagnostics company, recently announced  its acquisition by PDI, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDII). The acquisition immediately expands the oncology diagnostic product portfolio for PDI, Inc. subsidiary, Interpace Diagnostics, with a test currently generating approximately $10 million in revenue that is marketed for determining pancreatic cancer risk from pancreatic cysts, as well as tests in late-stage development for assessing cancer risk for Barrett’s esophagus and in the biliary tract.

PDI acquired all of the outstanding shares of RedPath. Terms of the deal include a $12 million upfront payment, future milestone-based payments, future revenue-based payments, an $11 million non-interest bearing four-year subordinated note to the shareholders of RedPath, and up to one million PDI shares issuable upon the successful introduction of the Barrett’s esophagus test. In connection with the acquisition of RedPath, PDI secured a $20 million, six-year term loan from SWK Holdings Corporation.

“PDI represents an important investment opportunity for SWK. We are very excited to support the company’s efforts to build the Interpace Diagnostics business with a flexible, non-dilutive financing solution,” said Brett Pope, Chief Executive Officer of SWK.
