Recent Operating Highlights:

  • On July 6, 2021, the Company announced completion of enrollment of the observational clinical study combining nCLE and robotic-assisted bronchoscopy, using both Cellvizio and the Monarch® Platform from Auris Health, Inc., part of Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, for the diagnosis of peripheral lung nodules (Clinicaltrials.gov: NCT04441749).
  • On August 24, 2021, the Company announced that it received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its next-generation Cellvizio® platform and all associated Confocal Miniprobes™ for a new clinical indication for visualization of blood flow when used in conjunction with a fluorescent dye, fluorescein, as a drug-device combination (K212322). This marked the 19th U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance of the Cellvizio® p/nCLE platform.
  • On September 20, 2021, the Company announced that it entered into a new research collaboration agreement with the Lung Cancer Initiative (“LCI”) at Johnson & Johnson1 to advance the validation of Cellvizio as a real-time biopsy guidance tool during robotic-assisted bronchoscopy to potentially reduce the near-miss rate of peripheral lung cancer.
  • On September 20, 2021, the Company announced the execution of equity subscription agreements with Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JJDC, Inc. (JJDC), one of the Company’s existing shareholders, and a leading US-based healthcare fund, Armistice Capital Master Fund Ltd. The net proceeds from this offering are expected to be approximately €11.5 million. The Company estimates that the net proceeds of the offering, as well as any additional drawings on the equity line that the company has with Kepler Cheuvreux, as the case may be, will enable it to finance its activities and strategy until the end of the third quarter of 2022.

Management Commentary:

“Our first half of 2021 financial results reflect solid execution and improvement in the global operating environment,” stated Robert L. Gershon, Chief Executive Officer of Mauna Kea Technologies. Our new targeting strategy in the U.S. GI market focused on high-volume upper GI clinicians continues to result higher utilization per system and we continue to support our GI customers in our primary global markets outside the U.S.”

“We were pleased to announce an important new clinical study and an expanded agreement as part of our collaboration with the Lung Cancer Initiative at Johnson & Johnson and we believe these announcements reflect the progress we have made in our strategic collaboration with LCI and the potential impact of real-time in vivo cellular imaging with Cellvizio, combined with the Monarch Platform, particularly as it relates to using Cellvizio for real-time tool-in-lesion confirmation during robotic-assisted bronchoscopy procedures. We were also pleased to announce the execution of equity subscription agreements with JJDC, our largest existing shareholder, and a new investor, Armistice Capital Master Fund Ltd. The proceeds from this offering will help us execute our strategic growth initiatives, including the expansion of our Cellvizio® real-time in vivo cellular imaging platform, and our goal of improving patient care in the years to come.”
