Axonics® Announces $40 Million Financing

Del

Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc., a privately-held developer of the first rechargeable Sacral Neuromodulation (r-SNM™) system for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, announced today that it has completed a $40.1 million financing that combines $20.1 million in equity and a $20 million credit facility.

The equity financing was led by Longitude Capital and included participation from existing investor Gilde Healthcare. The secured credit facility was provided by Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). Concurrent with the financing, Juliet Bakker, co-founder and Managing Director of Longitude, will join the Axonics Board of Directors.

Ms. Bakker commented, “Given the quality of the Axonics r-SNM system and the caliber of its management team, Longitude is confident that Axonics is well positioned to address the needs of patients with urinary and bowel dysfunction and disrupt the worldwide market for sacral neuromodulation.”

Axonics intends to use the proceeds from the financing to launch its r-SNM system in Europe and in the U.S. following FDA approval. Axonics is currently conducting a pivotal study in select medical centers in the U.S. and Europe and expects to complete the study in late 2018. The Axonics r-SNM system is approved in Europe, Canada and Australia.

“On behalf of all the stakeholders in Axonics, I extend a warm welcome to Longitude as a new investor and Ms. Bakker as a new board member,” said Raymond W. Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Axonics. “Axonics has created an innovative and highly competitive sacral neuromodulation system, and as a result, we have been able to attract a significant amount of investment capital from world-class investors in Europe, the U.S. and China. With this new equity and the credit facility from SVB, we now have the necessary capital to successfully commercialize the r-SNM system.”
