BioForce Nanosciences Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:BFNH) announced today that it received forgiveness on its $150,000 loan from the State of Iowa Department of Economic Development. The State of Iowa granted forgiveness for the loan, which BioForce received in 2005 to aid with the costs of developing its offices in Ames, Iowa, because the company met specified criteria regarding the acquisition of additional capital and growth in employment.
BioForce's Ames facility includes production space for its Nano eNabler(tm) molecular printing system, which is used by elite academic institutions around the world, including Harvard Medical School and Johns Hopkins University, for research and development of novel bionanotechnology applications. The Ames facility is also the location where BioForce uses the Nano eNabler(tm) system to develop its own proprietary bionanotechnology applications, including the ViriChip(tm) virus detection system and Chip-on-a-Tip(tm) ultra-miniaturized diagnostic tests.
BioForce's CFO, Greg Brown, said, "We appreciate this support from the State of Iowa. The funding was one of the building blocks that enabled BioForce to develop into a commercial entity, with sales and installations having been achieved on a worldwide basis. The forgiveness of this loan is an important part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen our balance sheet. Being able to utilize capital sources such as the state, thereby reducing our dependence upon relatively high cost equity capital, is important for young, growing companies such as BioForce."
