(TSX:VIR) (AMEX:REX), a company focused on developing innovative-targeted therapeutic products that offer better quality of life and a renewed hope for living announces that LM Funds Corp., the standby guarantor under its previously announced rights offering, has failed to fulfill its obligation to provide $3,000,000 CA as the Standby Purchaser for the rights offering.

ViRexx Announces Results of Rights Offering and Failure of LM Funds Corp. to Provide Standby Commitment

Edmonton, AB, Canada | Posted on September 10th, 2008

The Company received 13,244,367 valid tenders for common shares from shareholders who exercised their basic subscription privilege and received 834,535 valid tenders for common shares from shareholders who exercised their additional subscription privilege. In total 14,078,902 rights were exercised which provided gross proceeds to the Company of $633,550.59 CA.

LM Funds Corp. failed to meet its obligation to provide the Standby Commitment of $3,000,000 CA and has notified the Company that it will not meet this obligation. Management is working with its advisors to examine the Company's alternatives in order to determine the appropriate course of action and to attempt to find alternative funding.

"Although we are very disappointed by LM Funds Corp.'s inability to meets its obligation we are encouraged by the number of shareholders who participated in the rights offering", said Darrell Elliott, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer of ViRexx. "We will continue to work closely with our advisors to take appropriate actions where necessary in order to meet the Company's strategic objectives."

If alternative, equivalent financing to replace the LM Funds Corp. commitment is not arranged by close of business on September 18, 2008 shareholders who exercised their rights and wish to rescind their participation in the rights offering will have the opportunity to do so once the appropriate rescission process is determined.
