And more good news...


Nutrition 21 Receives Commitment from a National Retail Chain for its Chromax(R) Product
Monday April 10, 1:19 pm ET
Food, Drug and Mass Retailer Support Continues to Grow


PURCHASE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 10, 2006--Nutrition 21, Inc., (NASDAQ: NXXI - News) today announced that it has received a purchase order from a national retail chain for the company's Chromax® chromium picolinate product. The Customer has requested that Nutrition 21 not announce its name until the product is available at all of its 5,000 plus stores. The Customer also committed to distribute the Company's Diachrome product.
ADVERTISEMENT


Chromax is a supplement for healthy and pre-diabetic people that promotes insulin health and helps improve blood sugar metabolism and cardiovascular health. Diachrome is a non-prescription nutrient based insulin sensitizer for people with type 2 diabetes.

"We now have commitments from five of the top eight retailers in the United States," said Paul Intlekofer, COO of Nutrition 21. "Their commitment to put Chromax on the shelf is further evidence of the growing public interest in the insulin-related benefits of chromium picolinate. Chromium is to insulin health as calcium is to bone health. Chromium picolinate is one of five featured "Super Nutrients" in the January 16 issue of Newsweek magazine. It was also the focus of a feature story in the April 3 issue of First for Women."

The Company is supporting its strategy for direct retail sales of Chromax and the chromium picolinate category with a comprehensive marketing and communications program. The Company expects revenues from its direct retail sales efforts to commence in the 2nd calendar quarter of 2006.

Nutrition 21 Receives Commitment from WellMed to Purchase Diachrome(R) for Patients with Diabetes
Tuesday April 18, 1:22 pm ET
Diachrome incorporated into clinical guidelines for type 2 diabetes patients


PURCHASE, N.Y. & SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 18, 2006--Nutrition 21, Inc. (NXXI: NASDAQ) and WellMed Medical Management, Inc. today announced an agreement for a five-year program that will provide Diachrome® to people with type 2 diabetes who participate in WellMed's diabetes disease management program in San Antonio, Texas.

WellMed is a physician-owned practice management company which owns ten clinics and provides management services to 18 additional clinics in the San Antonio area. WellMed will purchase Diachrome directly from Nutrition 21 and provide the product to their participants as a daily nutritional support regimen designed specifically for people with diabetes.

"The WellMed commitment results from our strategy of working directly with healthcare provider groups and disease management organizations to incorporate Diachrome into their treatment protocols," said Paul Intlekofer, COO of Nutrition 21. "WellMed appreciated Diachrome's unique value proposition in addressing a healthcare crisis in the United States. Having participated as a study center in our recently completed 447 subject study conducted with XLHealth, a disease management firm, WellMed's first hand experience with Diachrome led them to make a decision to not only recommend the product, but to buy it directly and provide it to their patients."

"Their commitment further heightens awareness of the safety and efficacy of Diachrome as an adjunct therapy for people with diabetes as we begin with our plan to roll-out Diachrome nationally in major drug chains and also continue to work with other managed care organizations," added Intlekofer.

Diachrome is a non-prescription, nutrient-based insulin sensitizer for adults who have type 2 diabetes that has shown a positive dual effect on blood sugar as well as lipid metabolism in clinical studies and practice. It is a patented composition with United States and international patent protection through 2017.

"We are excited about the opportunity to include Diachrome in our treatment regimen for people with diabetes," said George M. Rapier, III, M.D, CEO for WellMed. "We have seen compelling clinical evidence on Diachrome's safety and efficacy. Including this affordable complementary therapy into our current program will offer our diabetes participants another means of controlling their diabetes while substantially lessening the economic burden of the disease."

As part of the agreement, WellMed has included Diachrome in its clinical guidelines for providing care to patients with diabetes. Diachrome will be delivered initially to 1,500 WellMed patients participating in the WellMed diabetes disease management program. This number is expected to grow as more patients with diabetes are identified and moved into the disease management program and as WellMed's service locations expand. Diachrome is currently available at CVS/pharmacy in the Home Diagnostic/Diabetes Care section.

According to the American Diabetes Association, there are 18.2 million people in the United States, or 6.3 percent of the population, who have diabetes. The economic impact of diabetes was estimated at $132 billion in 2002, including direct medical expenditures and the costs of lost productivity. From 1997 to 2002, the per capita annual cost of diabetes rose 30 percent.

News out...confirms deal with WALMART...check middle paragraph.


PURCHASE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 26, 2006--Nutrition 21, Inc., (NASDAQ: NXXI - News) today announced that its Board of Directors has elected Paul Intlekofer as president and chief executive officer. Mr. Intlekofer has been serving as chief financial officer and senior vice president of corporate development since January 2003 and most recently was elected chief operating officer in November 2005.
ADVERTISEMENT


"Paul Intlekofer's proven leadership and strategic vision have been the driving force behind the company's current transition toward becoming a supplier of branded finished products addressing therapeutic markets," said John Gutfreund, Chairman of the Board. "Mr. Intlekofer possesses a unique mix of strategic vision, passion and operational discipline that has served and will continue to serve Nutrition 21 well. The Board is confident that Mr. Intlekofer is the right person to realize the potential of Nutrition 21."

"I am honored to be selected CEO," said Intlekofer. "I know first hand that we have great products that address significant and growing markets. Over the past several years we've made a considerable investment in research to clinically validate our proprietary technologies. We recently built out an experienced and talented sales and marketing team to capitalize on these findings. Their contribution and pace of execution gives me great confidence in the long-term future and growth of the company."

Since January of 2006, the Company has secured distribution for its Chromax® chromium picolinate in Wal-Mart, Rite Aid, Albertsons, Kroger and another major drug chain. The Company expects to have full nationwide distribution in these and over 90 percent of food, drug and mass outlets by the end of the summer. The Company is also working with the retailers to create an Insulin Health end-benefit destination on the shelf for chromium picolinate similar to Bone Health for calcium.

"With an aging baby boomer population and the rise of obesity there are tens of millions of adults concerned with their blood sugar and cholesterol levels and their risk for developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes. As a natural solution for managing insulin, Chromax can become an everyday product similar to calcium. In the U.S. alone, calcium accounts for $1 billion in retail stand-alone sales," added Intlekofer.

Nutrition 21 also recently secured a commitment from CVS/pharmacy for Diachrome, a non-prescription nutrient based insulin sensitizer for people with type 2 diabetes. The Company expects to have full nationwide distribution of Diachrome with the major drug chains by the Fall to coincide with the publication of its recently completed study with XLHealth.

"The key to success for Diachrome is to secure endorsement and recommendation from pharmacists and healthcare providers. We've taken considerable steps to substantiate Diachrome's health benefits and the early results indicate that physicians are impressed with Diachrome's efficacy and safety. We have developed an innovative marketing strategy that will leverage the managed care/disease management information infrastructure to communicate the benefits of Diachrome to the healthcare community," said Intlekofer.

Nutrition 21 Raises $10.0 Million in Private Placements

Friday , May 19, 2006 10:14 ET

PURCHASE, N.Y., May 19, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nutrition 21 (NASDAQ: NXXI), the leading developer and marketer of chromium-based nutritional supplements, today announced that it completed separate private placements of 5,555,556 shares of common stock at $1.80 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of $10.0 million. The Company also issued to the investors 2,222,222 five-year warrants that are exercisable at $2.20 per share. The securities were sold pursuant to separate agreements to a select group of institutional and private investors, including Fort Mason Capital LLC and BETA. C.E. Unterberg Towbin, LLC acted as the primary financial advisor to Nutrition 21 in these placements.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of these securities primarily for marketing and advertising of Chromax(R) and Diachrome(R), the Company's first branded chromium picolinate-based proprietary products. In addition, a portion of the net proceeds will be allocated to continue to aggressively enforce the Company's patent rights.

Paul Intlekofer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nutrition 21, said, "The quality of investors in these private placements reflects the confidence we share in our business strategy, as well as the market potential of our products."

Dr. Mitchell Blutt, CEO of BETA, one of the lead investors in this financing, stated, "As a healthcare focused investment firm, the basis of our interest in Nutrition 21 is the strength of its proprietary science and its market potential."

The securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or applicable state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. Nutrition 21 has agreed pursuant to separate registration rights agreements to file a registration statement covering resales by the investors of the common stock sold to the investors and the common stock issuable on exercise of the warrants.

time to load again....

Slowly walked down to nice support level.

Haven't had news for awhile and jumps very good on it. If you look at gaps between PR releases...they are more than overdue.

Now printing 1.93 while some big investors bought 10M$ at 1.80 with options at 2.20 - they sure won't leave it just a couple pennies up.

Serious analyst put the stocks at 3.30.

Loading now. GL
