Agile Therapeutics

Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGRX ), a women's healthcare company, announced today a partnership with U.S. Women’s Soccer legend, Carli Lloyd. The partnership with Agile will focus on bringing awareness to women’s health topics, and Agile’s commitment to elevating women’s healthcare. Lloyd, who will play her final game for the U.S. Women’s National Team on October 26 th against South Korea, was attracted to the company’s mission of addressing the healthcare needs of today’s women. “I’m excited to be partnering with a company solely dedicated to women’s health,” said Lloyd. “I aim to work with organizations that focus on things I care about, and staying healthy has been a priority for my career on the field and will continue to be so as I look ahead to my next chapter. Agile’s focus on bringing women options and knowledge when it comes to their healthcare decisions is a mission I’m proud to be part of. And the fact that I’m a Jersey girl, representing a New Jersey company makes it even better.” Agile has built its brand around a commitment to addressing women’s health needs. It received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February 2020 for its first product, Twirla ® (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol) transdermal system, a weekly contraceptive patch. It currently has four additional contraceptive products in its pipeline. “Carli’s ‘ always believe and never quit ’ attitude fits what Agile Therapeutics believes as a company,” said Al Altomari, CEO of Agile Therapeutics. “We’ve been selective about aligning with the right partners at the right time, and Carli is someone who seamlessly fits our corporate culture, aligns with our values, and understands the importance of empowering women, especially young women, to reach beyond their limits, believe in themselves, and never compromise, especially with their healthcare.” As a growing company, Agile sees this partnership as an opportunity to help further develop its culture and corporate brand by partnering with leaders who share the company’s values and mission.. “Our short-term goal is to establish Twirla in the contraceptive market, and our long-term mission remains the same: Build a robust women’s health franchise, and Carli is a critical piece of that puzzle,” said Altomari. “She’s been a vocal advocate for women, and her voice is an important one in the national conversation about women’s health and healthcare needs. We want to be sure we communicate our message and commitment to women’s health in an authentic and relatable way. This is a mission we share with Carli, and we are proud to welcome her to our team.” About Agile Therapeutics, Inc. Agile Therapeutics is a women's healthcare company dedicated to fulfilling the unmet health needs of today’s women. Our product and product candidates are designed to provide women with contraceptive options that offer freedom from taking a daily pill, without committing to a longer-acting method. Our initial product, Twirla®, (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol), a transdermal system, is a non-daily prescription contraceptive. Twirla is based on our proprietary transdermal patch technology, called Skinfusion®, which is designed to allow drug delivery through the skin. For more information, please visit the company website at www.agiletherapeutics.com. The Company may occasionally disseminate material, nonpublic information on the Company’s website. About Twirla® Twirla (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol) transdermal system is a once-weekly combined hormonal contraceptive (CHC) patch that contains the active ingredients levonorgestrel (LNG), a type of progestin, and ethinyl estradiol (EE), a type of estrogen. Twirla is indicated for use as a method of contraception by women of reproductive potential with a body mass index (BMI) < 30 kg/m2 for whom a combined hormonal contraceptive is appropriate. Healthcare providers (HCPs) are encouraged to consider Twirla’s reduced efficacy in women with a BMI ≥ 25 to <30 kg/m2 before prescribing. Twirla is contraindicated in women with a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. Twirla is contraindicated in women over 35 years old who smoke. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious cardiovascular events from CHC use. Twirla is designed to be applied once weekly for three weeks, followed by a week without a patch.

The State of Our Schools: The Nation’s Public School Facilities in Crisis

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/g7dJiz_7fRI Living through a pandemic has heightened the awareness for many parents around the issues of health and safety in the schools their children attend. As school districts across the U.S. prepare for and begin a new academic year, the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), along with 21 st Century School Fund and the National Council on School Facilities, is releasing a new report that takes a comprehensive look into the current state of our nation’s school facilities funding and draws attention to the disparity across the U.S. in funding efforts. Ending disparities in facilities conditions and quality by income, locale and race, must be prioritized as these gaps will not be closed without an aggressive and an intentional plan to eliminate them. IWBI is working to ensure the health, safety, education suitability, and environmental sustainability and resilience for our students, teachers and staff now and for the future. The 2021 State of Our Schools Report puts a white-hot spotlight on the fact that severe and chronic underinvestment – to the tune of $85 billion a year – is eroding the country’s ability to provide safe, healthy and sustainable schools. Every day, nearly 60 million people—students, teachers and staff—walk through the doors of our country’s nearly 100,000 PK-12 public schools, which represent the second largest sector of U.S. public infrastructure spending after highways. States and local school districts do their best to increase their efforts to maintain and invest in their school facilities when funding is available, but they are falling further and further behind. For more information visit: wellcertified.com About The International WELL Building Institute: The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is a public benefit corporation and the world’s leading organization focused on deploying people first places to advance a global culture of health.

National Land Realty Sees 155% Jump in Rural Land Sales This Year

National Land Realty

National Land Realty, the nation’s fastest growing real estate land brokerage company specializing in farm, ranch, country estates, timber, recreational, and commercial development properties, today announced that for the first half of 2021, the company saw a 155.53% increase in land sales as compared to the same period last year. From January 1 to June 30, 2021, National Land Realty sold $678,166,278 worth of land, compared to $265,389,196 in the same timeframe in 2020. “National Land Realty is currently active in 40 states having recently added Maryland and New Jersey, and we’re getting ready to expand into New York and Delaware,” said CEO Jason Walter. “We have 348 active field team members and are continuing to add two new members on average each week, which means we’ll eclipse 400 very soon.” With 1,426 unique transactions year-to-date, National Land Realty has sold 167,493 acres of property worth more than $850 million. “We are well on our way to surpassing $1 billion in sales volume for 2021,” said Jason Burbage, President of National Land Realty. “Part of the reason for our rapid growth and success is that we’ve made heavy investments in land touring and mapping technology, such as Land Tour 360 ® and LandBase™, which gives our agents and brokers a big advantage over the competition.” National Land Realty recently released an updated version of Land Tour 360 ®, a revolutionary new way for buyers to view and navigate land parcels online. The unique mapping technology allows visitors to the company's website to view listings three dimensionally and explore rural land in ways previously unattainable. "Instead of showing a prospective buyer a video of a property where the agent technically remains in control, the Land Tour 360® interactive experience puts the controls into the hands of the buyer allowing them to view the property at their own desired pace and level of detail," said Aaron Graham, Chief Innovation Officer for National Land Realty. "Giving buyers this kind of self-guided shopping experience has proven to be extremely effective in the residential brokerage world through technology such as Matterport. We've been able to integrate Matterport's technology into our Land Tour 360® platform, so users are not only able to view the land in 3D, but they can also view the inside of buildings or structures in 3D." About National Land Realty National Land Realty (NLR) is the nation’s fastest growing real estate land brokerage company specializing in farm, ranch, country estates, timber, recreational, and commercial development properties. Highly regarded for its proprietary land touring technology, Land Tour 360 ®, as well as its GIS land mapping system, LandBase™, which catalogs land data in extremely detailed ways, the company makes it easy to view and zero in on the right property in the right place.
