NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation Closes $12.5 Million Private Placement with Certain Prominent Institutional Investors, Advances Towards Nasdaq UplistingEDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Jan. 15, 2021 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NMTC; NeuroOne or the Company), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, announces today the closing of a previously announced private placement for the sale of 12,500,000 shares of its common stock and corresponding warrants to purchase 12,500,000 shares of its common stock. Each share of common stock and corresponding warrant is being sold at an aggregate purchase price of $1.00 for gross proceeds of $12,500,000. The exercise price of each warrant is $1.75 per share and are exercisable for a period of five years from the date of issuance.
After deducting the placement agent's fees and other offering expenses to be paid by the Company, the Company received net proceeds of approximately $11,500,000. The Company expects to use the net proceeds to pursue a proposed Nasdaq uplisting, accelerate research and development efforts, potentially advance a second commercial product launch in 2021, pending regulatory clearance, and other general corporate purposes.
Kestrel Merchant Partners LLC acted as the exclusive sponsor and The Benchmark Company, LLC acted as the sole placement agent in connection with the offering.
Dave Rosa, President and CEO, NeuroOne, says, "The completion of this financing led by sophisticated institutional investors with substantial experience investing in medical device technologies represents another major milestone and validation for the Company. We expect that this capital positions the Company well for a potential uplisting to the Nasdaq Stock Market without requiring an additional capital raise while also providing runway into 2022. As previously communicated, this remains a priority for the Company in 2021."
"We also expect that this financing will allow us to complete a submission to the FDA for our Evo sEEG electrode, which would also be distributed by our commercialization partner Zimmer Biomet if they exercise their exclusive distribution rights. We believe we are well-positioned to accelerate development of the therapeutic technologies we have targeted that broaden the application and commercial opportunity for the Company."
NeuroOne received FDA clearance for its Evo cortical technology in November 2019. It plans to submit a second 510(k) application for its sEEG electrode technology in the first half of 2021 to bolster its product portfolio for use in recording, monitoring and stimulating brain tissue for up to 30 days. In addition, the Company continues developing therapeutic electrodes for use in Parkinson's Disease, epilepsy and back pain due to failed back surgery.
In partnership with Mayo Clinic, Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) and other prominent academic medical centers, the Company began developing its cortical electrode technology in 2015. The Company initially focused its efforts on the epilepsy and intraoperative tumor monitoring markets. NeuroOne intends to continue to develop the technology for use in therapeutic applications for Parkinson's disease, epilepsy and pain management due to failed back surgery procedures.
In July 2020, NeuroOne executed a distribution and development agreement with Zimmer Biomet that provides exclusive rights to distribute NeuroOne's current Evo cortical electrodes and its sEEG electrode product line once it has received FDA clearance.
