FDA approval and working capital

24 December 2020

TruSpine Technologies plc (AQSE: TSP), the medical device company focused on the spinal (vertebral) stabilisation market, announces that the application for FDA clearance for its Cervi-LOK product which it expected to make by Q4 2020 has been delayed for up to three months. The delay is a result of being unable to secure cadaver lab time and testing due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, the Company have been able to computer model the Cervi-LOK product in situ, and this has enabled the Company to make minor modifications to the Cervi-LOK product.

These modifications should see a significant improvement to the current design and enable the Cervi-LOK product suite to be accessible to a wider range of patients once launched.

Cadaver lab time and testing has been booked for February 2021, pending further COVID-19 restrictions.

Further to the announcement on 12 November 2020, the Company continues to be in dialogue with Evrensel Capital Partners Limited (“Evrensel”) and expects Evrensel’s subscription for 694,444 new ordinary shares in the Company at a price of 36 pence per share to complete by 5 January 2021, providing the Company with an additional £250,000 of gross proceeds.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 ("MAR").

The Directors of the Company take responsibility for this announcement.
