Deltex Medical Group plc (AIM: DEMG), the global leader in Oesophageal Doppler Monitoring ("ODM"), today announces that it has raised £550,000 by means of a placing of 16,296,296 new Ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") (the "Placing") with existing and new private shareholders.

 

Highlights

 

·      The Placing of 16,296,296 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 3.375 pence per share, a discount of 10% from the closing mid-market price on 20 July, raising £550,000

·      The Placing proceeds will be applied to working capital

·      The Company released today a trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2017 showing a return to growth with revenues 7% ahead of the first half of 2016

·      In the last year, the Company has significantly reduced its rate of cash consumption and enters the second half of the year with traction in export markets driving overall sales growth, higher margins and lower costs

·      The Company is also positioned for incremental returns from investments made or substantially complete in new product development. Two new products were released in the first half of 2017.

 

Application will be made for the 16,296,296 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. The new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing issued shares of the Company and dealings are expected to commence on 27 July 2017.

Deltex Medical's Chairman, Nigel Keen, commented:

"This fundraising will provide the Company with additional working capital as it moves to the operating cash break-even point.

 

Over the last year, the Company has made substantial progress towards moving the business through the operating cash break-even point. Sales traction in the USA and other export markets have pulled the Company back into growth after a challenging period in the UK market. We are benefiting from investments made over the last three years in manufacturing efficiencies, US expansion and new product development.

 

We are positioned to benefit further going forward from substantially complete investments in further new product developments which will complete our transition from a single technology business to a provider of high quality, multi-technology platforms."

Notes for Editors

 

Deltex Medical manufactures and markets haemodynamic monitoring technologies. Deltex Medical's proprietary ODM is the only technology to measure blood flow in the central circulation in real time. Minimally invasive, easy to set up and quick to focus, the technology generates a low-frequency ultrasound signal, which is highly sensitive to changes in flow and measures them immediately. Deltex has been the only company in the enhanced haemodynamic space to build a robust and credible evidence base proving the clinical and economic benefits of its core technology, ODM which is proven to reduce complications suffered by patients after surgery and save hospitals the costs of treating those complications.

 

Deltex Medical's CardioQ-ODM+ platform also now provides clinicians with two further advanced haemodynamic monitoring technologies. High Definition Impedance Cardiography is an entirely non-invasive monitoring technology which creates an electrical field across the chest and measures the disruption to this field when the heart pumps blood. Pulse Pressure Waveform Analysis uses peripheral blood pressure signal analysis to give doctors information on changes in the circulation and is particularly suited to monitoring lower risk or haemodynamically stable patients.

 

Company goal

 

Haemodynamic management is now becoming widely accepted as an important major new medical modality. Consequently, the Company's focus is on maximising value from the opportunities presented as enhanced haemodynamic management is adopted into routine clinical practice around the world. The Company aims to provide clinicians with a single platform, a 'haemodynamic workstation', which offers them a range of technologies from simple to sophisticated to be deployed according to the patient's condition and skill and expertise of the user. Doing this will enable the Company to partner healthcare providers to support modern haemodynamic management across the whole hospital.

 

The Company is currently in the implementation phase of achieving this goal in a number of territories worldwide, operating directly in the UK, USA, Spain and Canada and through distribution arrangements in a further 30 countries.

 

There are over 3,400 monitors installed in hospitals around the world and around 700,000 patients have been treated to date using Deltex Medical's single patient disposable products.
