Background to the Offer
OssDsign is a Swedish medical technology company that develops and markets innovative implants for improved healing and treatment of bone defects. The foundation of the Company is a patented bioceramic material which during the healing process is transformed into bone tissue. OssDsign designs, manufactures and sells patient-specific implants for treating injuries and defects in the skull and face.
OssDsign has executed successful market launches and noted a significant interest in the Company's products, which is manifested in rapidly rising sales over the past few years. OssDsign believes that there are promising prerequisites for establishing the Company's patient-specific implants as a standard treatment for cranial and facial interventions following trauma, radiation therapy, tumors, stroke or congenital defects
In order to achieve the Company's objectives, significant market investments need to be carried out in the coming years and in order to finance these, OssDsign has decided to implement the forthcoming Offer which, upon full subscription, raises SEK 139M after transaction costs. The imminent Offer and subsequent listing on Nasdaq First North create the prerequisites for OssDsign to utilize the growth opportunities that the Company possesses and thereby build significant shareholder value over time.
Comment from the CEO of OssDsign, Anders Lundqvist
“OssDsign was founded with the ambition to improve the conditions for patients with complicated bone defects. Initially, we have chosen to focus on healing skeletal injuries in the skull and face where we identified a particularly vulnerable patient group where competing products are deficient and have a high complication rate. We have seen that our implants make a big difference for this patient group through, among other things, significantly lower complication rates and the unique ability of the implants to be transformed into the patient's own bone over time. We are currently in an exciting growth phase with continued establishment in key markets in Europe, the US and Asia ahead of us. Furthermore, we see good opportunities to broaden the use of our technology to other application areas and patient groups in need of better implants. Through the forthcoming new share issue, we will be provided long-term strategic owners and significant capital to carry out investments that make us well positioned for continued strong growth. I hope we get your confidence and the opportunity to welcome you as a new shareholder in OssDsign.”
