“Direct listings – where a company starts selling its stock on the public markets without raising money at the same time – are not new, but they’re extremely rare,” said Nexeon Chairman and CEO Will Rosellini. “We are fortunate to have a strong group of strategic investors, doctors, and scientists who understand our vision and took the chance on an unconventional path to the public markets.”
The Company is in final stages of product development prior to European regulatory approval submission for its deep brain neurostimulation system for the treatment of symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. The Company has previously identified a 2018 European commercial launch of this product with a US PMA trial working in parallel.
