What were the updates?
As an industry leader in carotid stenting, InspireMD seeks to use MicroNet technology to offer outstanding acute results and durable, stroke-free outcomes. The NSPR also provides the CGuard Embolic Prevention System (EPS) for reducing stroke risk sustained during treatment of Carotid Artery Disease (CAD).
A recent update on corporate developments was provided by InspireMD last week.
- The shareholders of NSPR voted to reverse the stock split in the ratio of 1:15, which will reduce their outstanding stock from 118 million shares down to 7.9 million shares after the close of trading on April 26, 2021.
- NSPR is also applying for inclusion on the Nasdaq Capital Market, which the Company believes would attract a broader range of investors than its current listing.
- A capital raise of $20.7M has confirmed NSPR’s position to conduct its C-Guardian FDA clinical trial while providing sufficient operating capital to meet its growth and product development objectives, as well as establish CGuard EPS as a leading product in its field.
A combination of InspireMD (NSPR)’s business model, superior technology platform, and timing matched with stenting’s rapid growth leads to CGuard’s position as a market leader in carotid stenting.
