Amendment Description Subsequent to filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2013 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 10, 2013, MRI Interventions, Inc. (the “Company”) determined that it should have used derivative liability accounting to account for the fair value of the warrants issued by the Company in its July 2012 equity private placement (the “July 2012 PIPE Financing”) in recording the net proceeds received from that transaction, due to the anti-dilution provision associated with the exercise price of the warrants. The Company previously recorded all of the net proceeds from the July 2012 PIPE Financing as equity. In accounting for the Company’s January 2013 equity private placement (the “January 2013 Financing”), the Company applied derivative liability accounting for the warrants issued in that transaction. However, the Company only considered the net cash settlement feature which gives the warrant holder the right to net cash settlement in the event certain transactions occur. The Company has determined that it should have considered other scenarios that do not result in application of the net cash settlement feature, in accordance with standards for derivative liability accounting. As a result, to correct those non-cash accounting errors, the Company is filing this Amendment No. 1 to the Form 10-Q (“Amendment No. 1”) for the purpose of restating its condensed financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2013 included in Part I, “Item 1. Financial Statements.” See Note 6 to the condensed financial statements included in this Amendment No. 1 for further information relating to the restatements. Conforming changes have been made to Part I, “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” In addition, Part I, “Item 4. Controls and Procedures” has been revised to reflect management’s re-evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2013. Part II, “Item 6. Exhibits” has been amended to include new certifications, as reflected in Exhibits 31.1, 31.2 and 32. Items 1, 2 and 4 of Part I and Item 6 of Part II of the Form 10-Q are the only portions of the Form 10-Q being amended and restated by this Amendment No. 1. The Company has not modified or updated disclosures presented in the Form 10-Q, except to reflect the effects of the restatements. This Amendment No. 1 does not reflect events occurring after the original filing date of the Form 10-Q on May 10, 2013, and does not modify or update those disclosures affected by subsequent events, except as specifically referenced herein with respect to the restatements. Information not affected by the restatements is unchanged and reflects the disclosures made at the time of the original filing of the Form 10-Q. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 should be read in conjunction with the Form 10-Q and the Company’s filings with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Form 10-Q on May 10, 2013.
