PRESS RELEASE

Artaflex Completes Going Private Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO — (Marketwired) — 04/26/13 — Artaflex Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ATF) (“Artaflex”) announced today that it has completed its going private transaction previously announced on March 26, 2013. Artaflex has filed articles of amendment effecting a consolidation of its common shares on the basis of 1 post-consolidated common share for each 2,500,000 pre-consolidated common shares (the “Consolidation”). The Consolidation has resulted in all of the shareholders of Artaflex (except for Artaflex Holdings Inc. (“AHI”)) holding a fractional interest in the post-consolidated common shares of Artaflex. As fractional shares will not be issued, each shareholder of Artaflex will receive $0.05 in cash for each pre-consolidated common share held immediately prior to the Consolidation in lieu of certificates for fractional post-consolidated common shares. AHI is now the sole shareholder of Artaflex holding approximately four common shares.

Artaflex obtained the required shareholder approvals to effect the Consolidation at its recent annual and special meeting of shareholders held on April 23, 2013. It is expected that Artaflex’s common shares will be delisted from TSX Venture Exchange at the close of trading on or about April 29, 2013, and an application will be made to the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities for an order that Artaflex will no longer be a reporting issuer under Canadian securities laws.
