OTTAWA, Dec. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Biovest Corp. I ("Biovest") (TSXV: BVC.P), is pleased to announce that, in connection with its proposed Qualifying Transaction with Magor Communications Corp. ("Magor"), Biovest intends to advance, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and subject to the approval of the Exchange, up to $200,000 to Magor, on an interest free basis, by way of secured promissory note (the "Loan").  The Loan will be secured by a general security agreement against all of the assets of Magor.  In the event that the Qualifying Transaction is not completed, the Loan will mature 90 days following the date that the Amalgamation Agreement between Biovest and Magor, dated November 7, 2012, has been formally terminated.
