invendo medical clôture un financement par capitaux propres de 20 millions d'euros dirigé par Xeraya Capital

-- Ce financement considérable accélérera l'industrialisation et la commercialisation du coloscope à usage unique d'invendo

KISSING, Allemagne et GARDEN CITY, New York, 21 mars 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- invendo medical, fabricant et distributeur du système de coloscopie à usage unique assisté par ordinateur, a annoncé aujourd'hui la clôture d'un tour de financement de 20,3 millions d'euros (28 millions $) dirigé par son nouvel investisseur Xeraya Capital Sdn Bhd (« Xeraya Capital »), qui a investi par le biais d'une société affiliée. Un bureau de gestion du patrimoine allemand s'est également joint comme nouvel investisseur, et les investisseurs existants TVM Capital, Wellington Partner et 360° Capital ainsi que les fondateurs de la société y ont aussi participé. Ce nouvel investissement permettra à invendo de lancer ses efforts l'industrialisation du système invendoscopy™ homologué par la FDA.

invendoscope™ SC20 présente plusieurs caractéristiques inédites dans le domaine de la coloscopie :

  • il s'agit du seul coloscope à usage unique autorisé sur le marché
  • il utilise une technologie de mouvement délicat assistée par ordinateur (« robotique ») et n'a donc pas besoin d'être poussé ni tiré
  • les fonctions endoscopiques sont effectuées au moyen d'un dispositif portatif et
  • il réduit la pression sur les parois du côlon.

Tout comme d'autres endoscopes, l'invendoscope™ permet d'effectuer des interventions intraprocéduraux à l'aide d'un canal opérateur.

« Nous sommes très contents du nouveau financement offert par Xeraya Capital et par nos autres investisseurs. Ce soutien financier arrive à point nommé alors que nous construisons les premiers sites et implantons les premiers usages aux États-Unis. La coloscopie représente déjà un important marché, avec quelque 16 millions d'interventions pratiquées par an rien qu'aux États-Unis, bien que le taux d'observance reste insuffisant. Nous anticipons que l'invendoscope™ jouera un rôle essentiel dans l'adoption du dépistage du cancer colorectal, car il permet d'éliminer certaines des principales craintes des patients qui subissent cet examen. Équipé d'une composante robotique, ce système constitue une première et offre aux patients une alternative assistée par ordinateur qui rend l'examen moins désagréable. Dernier point, mais non le moindre, les dispositifs à usage unique ont fini par s'imposer dans beaucoup de domaines médicaux, et l'invendoscope™ est l'unique système du genre en ce moment », a déclaré Berthold Hackl, PDG d'invendo medical.

« Xeraya Capital exerce des activités de gestion des services de placement relatives au capital-risque et au capital-investissement dans le domaine des sciences de la vie. Sa stratégie consiste à investir dans des fabricants de technologies révolutionnaires, et les technologies médicales figurent parmi les principaux domaines ciblés. invendo medical répond aux exigences d'un important marché en plein essor et propose un produit exclusif susceptible d'augmenter le nombre d'interventions visant à prévenir le cancer colorectal, soit la deuxième cause de mortalité par cancer. Xeraya Capital nous aidera à franchir une nouvelle étape », a rajouté Timo Hercegfi, directeur financier chez invendo.

Les fonds récemment obtenus serviront à la mise en place d'infrastructures de services et de marketing aux États-Unis dans le but d'accroître la capacité de production du dispositif et de soutenir les projets de développement en cours portant, entre autres, sur l'optique et la convivialité de l'appareil.
