NASDAQ, TSX: NVCN

VANCOUVER, July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Neovasc Inc. ("Neovasc" or the "Company") (NASDAQ,

TSX: NVCN) announced today that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with securities regulatory authorities in Canada, other than Quebec, and a corresponding shelf
registration statement on Form F-10 (the "Registration Statement") with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") under the U.S./Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System.

"This new base shelf prospectus will replace our existing base shelf prospectus that expires on July 9, 2018," commented Chris Clark, Neovasc's Chief Financial Officer. "The renewal of a base shelf prospectus is a routine filing that enables us to more easily access the capital markets in the future, but we are not actively raising new capital at the moment."

The base shelf prospectus and the Registration Statement, once clear and effective, respectively, will allow Neovasc to offer up to U.S.$100,000,000 of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, units and warrants from time to time over a 25-month period after Canadian securities regulatory authorities have issued a receipt for the final short form base shelf prospectus. The terms of such future offerings, if any, will be established at the time of such offerings and will be set forth in a prospectus supplement to the base shelf prospectus filed with applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities and with the SEC.

The Registration Statement filed today with the SEC has not yet become effective. No securities may be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

A copy of the Registration Statement, including the related prospectus, may be obtained by submitting a request to Chris Clark, Chief Financial Officer, at Neovasc's address at 5138-13562 Maycrest Way, Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, V6V 2J7. A copy of the preliminary short form base shelf prospectus can also be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, and a copy of the Registration Statement can be found on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
