expenditures, the procurement of raw material supply and for future

research and development of new product hardware and new imaging

About Novadaq Technologies Inc.

Novadaq primarily develops, manufactures and markets real-time

fluorescence imaging products that are designed for use by surgeons in

the operating room and other clinical settings where open, minimally

invasive or interventional surgical procedures are performed. The

Company's SPY@ Imaging core technology enables surgeons to visualize

blood flow in vessels, co-joined vessels and micro-vessels, and to

assess the quality of blood perfusion in tissue, without exposing the

patient to radiation. More than 50 peer-reviewed publications

demonstrate that the use of SPY Imaging during complex surgery leads

to fewer post-operative complications and lower hospital costs. The

SPY Imaging System is United States Food and Drug Administration

("FDA") 510(k) cleared for use during a variety of open surgical

applications. The endoscopic version of SPY, which is branded

PINPOINT, combines the capabilities of SPY Imaging with high

definition ("HD") visible light visualization offered by conventional

endoscopes. The majority of Novadaq's current revenues come from

alliances formed with leading companies in relevant markets in which

SPY technology has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcomes in

open, minimally invasive and robotic surgery applications. Novadaq's

first alliance integrates SPY Imaging into the 3-D HD imaging

capabilities of the da Vinci@ Surgical Robotic System offered by

Intuitive Surgical@, Inc. The integrated system received FDA 510(k)

clearance in February 2011. In September 2010, Novadaq entered into an

exclusive North American sales and marketing alliance with LifeCell

Corporation, for SPY in open plastic and reconstructive,

gastrointestinal and head and neck surgeries. In November 30, 2011,

Novadaq signed exclusive, multi-year sales and marketing agreements

with Kinetic Concepts, Inc., for wound care applications and extended

its agreement with LifeCell for the commercialization of the SPY

System into vascular surgery. In addition, the SPY Imaging System for

cardiac applications is marketed directly, whereas the CO2 Heart

Laser for TMR is distributed by MAQUET Cardiovascular. For more
