CORMEDIX INC. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS AND PROVIDES BUSINESS UPDATE

Conference Call Scheduled for Today at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Berkeley Heights, NJ – November 14, 2019 – CorMedix Inc. (NYSE American: CRMD), a
biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products
for the prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory disease, today announced
financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and provided
an update on recent business developments.

Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Positive responses received from the FDA regarding the Company’s pre-New Drug
    Application, or pre-NDA, meeting questions relating to the preparation of the NDA. The
    FDA agreed that Neutrolin is eligible for priority review, setting a review period goal of 6
    months rather than the standard review period of 10 months. The FDA also agreed that
    the Neutrolin NDA submission is eligible for rolling review and that the Company’s
    proposed submission plan is reasonable. The FDA further agreed that it is appropriate to
    submit a request for approval of Neutrolin under the Limited Population Pathway for
    Antibacterial and Antifungal Drugs (LPAD Pathway) at the time of the NDA submission.
  • The Company completed its interaction with the FDA related to the chemistry,
    manufacturing and controls (CMC) package that will be required to support Neutrolin’s
    NDA. The FDA was supportive of Neutrolin’s proposed manufacturing program, including
    the manufacture of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), the container closure
    and testing, and indicated that it will conduct a thorough review of all of the CMC
    information as well as assess the commercial readiness of the various manufacturing
    facilities at the time of the NDA filing. No further CMC meetings with the FDA are planned
    prior to the NDA submission.
  • The Company believes it is on schedule for NDA submission and potential for approval
    during the second half of 2020.
  • CorMedix is developing the regulatory pathways aimed at additional indications for use
    in catheters for oncology patients and for patients requiring total parenteral nutrition
    (TPN). The Company is first focused on securing the indication for use in hemodialysis
    patients utilizing data from LOCK-IT-100, because it believes this strategy will provide
    greater opportunity for generating the clinical data needed for additional indications for
    use.

Khoso Baluch, CorMedix CEO commented, “We are delighted to have completed the CMC and
pre-NDA meetings with the FDA. I believe we have entered the home stretch towards our goal
of getting Neutrolin approved in the U.S. in the second half of 2020. We are now able to focus
our full attention on submitting the new drug application as quickly as possible. Over the next
several months, we expect to build manufacturing, marketing and medical affairs capabilities in
anticipation of commercial launch either alone or with a partner. This is an exciting time for the
Company and for the staff who have worked so hard to get us where we are today.”

Third Quarter and Nine Month 2019 Financial Highlights

For the third quarter of 2019, CorMedix recorded a net loss attributable to common shareholders
of $32.4 million, or $1.35 per share, compared with a net loss of $10.2 million, or $0.54 per share,
in the third quarter 2018, an increase of $22.2 million. The increase in net loss in the third quarter
2019 compared with the third quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by the deemed dividends
recognized as a result of the exchange agreement and modification of certain warrants
completed in September 2019 totaling $27.1 million. The net loss for the third quarter of 2019
before recognition of the deemed dividends was $5.3 million.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, CorMedix recorded a net loss attributable to
common shareholders of $38.2 million, or $1.62 per share, compared with a net loss of $29.0
million, or $1.73 per share, in the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $9.2 million. The
increase in net loss in the first nine months of 2019 compared with the first nine months of 2018
was driven primarily by the deemed dividends recognized as a result of the exchange agreement
and modification of certain warrants totaling $27.1 million during the first nine months of 2019,
partially offset by decreased clinical trial expense of $16.2 million. The net loss before
recognition of the deemed dividends during the first nine months of 2019 was $11.1 million.
Operating expenses during the third quarter of 2019 were $5.2 million, compared with $10.3
million in the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of approximately 50%. This decrease was due
primarily to a $5.8 million, or 70%, decrease in R&D expense, while SG&A expense increased by
31%. Operating expenses during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019 amounted
to $15.6 million compared with $29.0 million during the comparable period in 2018, a reduction
of $13.4 million, or 46%, due to a 64% reduction in R&D expense partially offset by a 23% increase
in SG&A.

In September 2019, the Company closed an Exchange Agreement with funds managed by Elliott
Management Corporation, its largest investor. In connection with the Exchange Agreement,
Elliott agreed to make a cash payment of $2.0 million and to exchange all of its outstanding
warrants, 10% Senior Secured Convertible Notes (the principal and accrued interest of which
would have amounted to a repayment obligation of approximately $10.1 million or been
convertible into approximately 1.35 million shares if held to maturity), and Series C-2, Series D
and Series F Convertible Preferred Stock for new Series G Convertible Preferred Stock. The new
Series G Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into an aggregate of 5,560,138 shares of
Common Stock, subject to a claw back of up to 139,769 shares of Common Stock, depending
upon the occurrence of certain stock price-related conditions. With the completion of this
exchange, the Company raised additional capital, became debt-free and substantially reduced
the amount of outstanding warrants as well as its classes of outstanding preferred stock.
Also in September 2019, as part of its continuing efforts to simplify its capital structure, the
Company agreed to reduce the exercise price on 1.2 million of its Series B Warrants expiring
August 2022 from the current exercise price of $5.25 to $4.00 in return for their immediate
exercise, which generated cash of $4.9 million.

The Exchange Agreement and warrant strike price reductions along with exercises of warrants
held by other investors during the 2nd quarter of 2019 resulted in the Company receiving gross
proceeds of approximately $10 million during the quarter and reducing its warrant overhang by
approximately 2.9 million shares. Warrants to purchase approximately 345,000 shares are
currently outstanding.

Total cash on hand and short-term investments as of September 30, 2019 amounted to $32.4
million, excluding restricted cash of $0.2 million. The Company believes that, based on the
Company’s cash resources at September 30, 2019, it has sufficient resources to fund operations
into 2021, including the submission of the NDA for Neutrolin and initial preparations for
commercial launch.

About CorMedix
CorMedix Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing
therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases.
The Company is focused on developing its lead product Neutrolin®, a novel, non-antibiotic
antimicrobial solution designed to prevent costly and dangerous bloodstream infections
associated with the use of central venous catheters, currently in Phase 3 development for
patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis. Such infections have significant treatment costs and
lead to increased morbidity and mortality. Neutrolin has FDA Fast Track status and is designated
as a Qualified Infectious Disease Product, which provide the potential for priority review of a
marketing application by FDA and allow for a total of ten years of market exclusivity in the event
of U.S. approval. Neutrolin is already marketed as a CE Marked product in Europe and other
territories. In parallel, CorMedix is leveraging its taurolidine technology to develop a pipeline of
antimicrobial medical devices, with active programs in surgical sutures and meshes, and topical
hydrogels. The company is also working with top-tier researchers to develop taurolidine-based
therapies for rare pediatric cancers. For more information, visit: www.cormedix.com.
