Paris, 23 January 2012 – EOS imaging announces today the registration of its “document de base” by the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) under No. I.12-002 dated 19 January 2012.
EOS imaging designs, develops and markets EOS, a medical imaging system revolutionising the treatment chain of the main osteoarticular diseases (hips, knees, back) and related orthopedic surgery. Based upon the work of Physics Nobel Prize Winner Georges Charpak, the EOS system is the first imaging solution capable of producing, in one step, a 2D and 3D image of the uprightskeleton with a very low radiation dose. EOS 2D/3D images are produced in the patient's natural functional position, raising the accuracy of diagnosis, surgery and osteoarticular pathological follow-up.
The EOS imaging group has obtained marketing authorisations in 30 countries including the United States (FDA), Canada, Australia and the European Union (CE). With a workforce of 57 employees, including an R&D team of 21 engineers, the EOS imaging group posted sales of €4.8 million in 2010.
EOS imaging aspires to turn into the key player in orthopeadic medical imaging and aims more specifically at:
• increasing international marketing activities on existing markets and to develop in new geographical areas;
• expanding the offer of services and innovative applications to address specific clinical requirements;
• pursuing the expansion of technological innovations based on the EOS platform.
Registration of the document de base is the first step towards EOS imaging's initial public offering on the regulated market of NYSE Euronext in Paris. The IPO should take place in 2012, subject to market conditions and to the AMF approval of the IPO prospectus.
The Initial Public Offering (IPO) of EOS imaging aims at allowing the company to pursue its development until profitability.
