LYON, France & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Medicrea Group (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0004178572 – ALMED), pioneering the transformation of spinal surgeries through Artificial Intelligence, predictive modeling and patient specific implants with its UNiD ASI™ technologies, announced today that the Company will begin trading on the OTCQX Best Market under the tickers “MRNTY” and “MRNTF” on Tuesday, the 28th of August, 2018.
“Being qualified to trade on the OTCQX Best Market in the U.S. is a great opportunity for Medicrea as well as for institutional and individual investors looking for a transformational medical device company. We believe that our proprietary patient-specific UNiD ASI™ (Adaptive Spine Intelligence) technology will become standard of care across the spine industry over the coming years and that it will replace the current approach, which requires manual implant manipulation and selection from a limited range that is not tailored to individual patients or surgeons,” stated Denys Sournac, Chief Executive Officer of Medicrea.
“The U.S. is an important market for Medicrea’s UNiD ASI™ platform as it represents the largest global market for spinal surgery and represents a key growth area with the Company’s largest subsidiary based in New York City. As we continue to drive Medicrea’s technology adoption in the U.S., we want U.S. investors to have a simple and efficient way to invest in Medicrea. Joining OTCQX will complement our European listing on EURONEXT Growth – Paris, providing additional opportunities for liquidity to the global investment community,” expanded Mr. Sournac.
The Company will trade under two separate tickers, MRNTY, which will represent the Company’s American Depository Receipts (“ADR”) and MRNTF, which will represent the Company’s ordinary shares. Each ADR represents one share of the Company’s ordinary shares. Investors will have the opportunity to purchase in dollars either ADR or ordinary shares.
“We are excited to welcome Medicrea to the OTCQX Best Market,” said Jason Paltrowitz, Executive Vice President of Corporate Services at OTC Markets Group. “Trading on the OTCQX Market will give Medicrea the opportunity to increase visibility within the U.S. and grow its investor base. Historically, international companies who trade on OTCQX have both increased the number of U.S.-based investors and improved trading volume in their home market, providing a benefit for investors in the U.S. and in their domestic markets.”
