  • The Issue Price equates to the closing mid-market price of 8.5 pence on 23 November 2018, being the last trading date prior to announcement of the proposed Transaction
  • The net proceeds of the Transaction will be used to develop the AI based products, ScanNav AutoCapture and ScanNav AnatomyGuide, to submit them for regulatory approval and for general working capital purposes
  • Proposed name change to Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc to reflect the Group’s expansion into the development of AI software for use in clinical ultrasound

The Transaction is conditional, inter alia, upon Shareholder approval at the General Meeting of the Company which is expected to be held at the offices of Memery Crystal LLP, 165 Fleet Street, London, EC4A 2DY at 11.00 a.m. on 12 December 2018.

Stuart Gall, CEO at MedaPhor, said: This is an important fundraise for the Group that will enable us to continue the development of our range of AI based ultrasound software tools in this new and exciting market. 2019 will be an important year as we look to secure an OEM agreement for ScanNav AutoCapture in the global obstetrics market and  submit ScanNav AnatomyGuide for regulatory approval. We would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support and look forward to a successful year under our new Intelligent Ultrasound name.”
