NYSE Euronext accueille EOS imaging sur son marché européen

Back

Paris, 16 February 2012– EOS imaging (FR0011191766 – EOSI), the pioneer in 2D/3D orthopaedic medical imaging, today celebrated its listing on NYSE Euronext in Paris.

The EOS imaging group designs, develops and markets EOS®, a medical imaging system that has revolutionised the care and treatment chain for major bone and joint diseases (hip, knee, spine) and related orthopaedic surgery. Based on the research of Nobel Physics laureate George Charpak, EOS® is the first imaging solution to capture whole-body 2D and 3D images of standing patients using a very low dose of radiation. The group has been authorised to market its system in 30 countries, including the United States (FDA), Canada, Australia and the European Union. Sales totalled €6.9 million in 2011.

EOS imaging was listed through the admission to trading of 11,882,429[1]existing shares and 5,520,000 new shares issued under a Global Offering,[2] including full exercise of the extension clause. The Global Offering raised a total of €37.9 million, which could rise to €41 million if the greenshoe option is fully exercised.

The admission and issue price of EOS imaging shares was set at €6.87, at the high end of the indicative spread. Market capitalisation stood at around €120 million on the day of listing.

“We are delighted to welcome the EOS imaging group to our European market and, in so doing, play an active role in developing its innovative business. This signals the reopening of listings on the Paris market and illustrates our efforts in the past two years to facilitate financing for businesses, particularly the SMEs that create value and jobs,” said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Coverage at NYSE Euronext.

Medical technology is one of the world’s fastest growing sectors and offers huge scope for expansion – as investors are well aware. Listing will enable EOS imaging to benefit from the excellent services that NYSE Euronext offers the financial community, and also to diversify its sources of financing as it expands in new geographical regions,” he added.

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, added:“We are very pleased with the success of our public offering. Through listing we have raised the capital we need to step up our international marketing and sales effort and to develop innovative solutions based on the EOS® platform.”



[1]Includes 278,870 new shares created by the redemption in shares, today, at the admission price, of bonds redeemable in shares issued by EOS imaging.

[2]The Global Offering was made up of an Open Price Public Offering and a Global Placement with institutional investors in France and other countries.
