The round was led by Sofinnova Partners, with continued participation from existing round B investors Bpifrance, the French sovereign investment bank, and Balestier, a Singaporean family fund.

Proceeds from the Series C financing will fund the company’s major strategic initiatives through the second half of 2020, including completion of a U.S. pivotal trial for the LimFlow Percutaneous Deep Vein Arterialization System (pDVA), which will be submitted to the FDA as part of the approval process, and execution of its international commercialization strategy.
Based in Paris, LimFlow was founded in late 2012 by Dr. Martin Rothman, a world-renowned interventional cardiologist, and MD Start, a European Incubator dedicated to healthcare. The company’s proprietary and CE marked technology is a novel and purely percutaneous therapy for “no-option” CLI patients when all other revascularization efforts have been exhausted and a patient is facing a major amputation.
In the past 18 months, the company has achieved a number of key milestones, including CE Mark and acceptance into the FDA Breakthrough Devices Program. Enrollment is also currently underway in both a U.S. feasibility study of the LimFlow technology (PROMISE I) and an international post-market study (PROMISE International).
“We are gratified with the support we have received from Sofinnova Partners, a leading European venture capital firm and one of the most respected and specialized global Life Sciences investors. We are equally appreciative of the continued strong commitment from our existing investors. The new funds will enable us to continue our mission to save patients from amputation, and ultimately, save lives that might otherwise be lost,” said LimFlow CEO Dan Rose.
“LimFlow is an excellent fit for our healthcare Crossover I fund, where we seek investments in companies with game-changing technologies that address important clinical unmet needs and are led by experienced and passionate management teams,” said Dr. Hong.
CAUTION: The LimFlow technology is approved for investigational use only in the United States. The LimFlow System received the CE Mark in October 2016 and is currently available commercially in Europe. The LimFlow System has not been approved for sale in the USA, Canada, or Japan.

Litigation Researchers Believe - Dutch Court Ruling - Big Blow to Petrobras’ Arbitration Strategy19.9.2018 22:34 | Pressemelding
Battea Global Litigation Research, Inc. believes today was a big milestone win for a large group of international investors supporting a coalition of law firms and the Dutch Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation (“SPCF” or “Foundation”) in the Netherlands, in their litigation over losses relating to the Petrobras “Lavo Jato” or “Operation Car Wash” scandal. The Rotterdam District Court ruled on whether the Foundation representing investors, who purchased securities outside of the United States, has the right to sue Petrobras in Dutch courts. Petrobras has been fighting investors both in the U.S. and internationally and has sought to drag investors to arbitration in Brazil. However, on January 3, 2018, Petrobras announced that in connection with the losses investors suffered from the “Lavo Jato” bribery scandal, it had agreed to a USD $3 billion settlement with investors who purchased ADRs (American Depository Receipts/American Depository Shares) and USD denominated bonds in the U

District Court in Rotterdam (Netherlands), Accepts Jurisdiction in Securities Fraud Litigation against Petrobras19.9.2018 15:11 | Pressemelding
On January 23, 2017, Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation (the “Foundation”) initiated an international collective action for Petrobras investors who purchased Petrobras securities outside of the United States and have suffered damages as a consequence of fraud that was uncovered by the “Lavo Jato” or “Operation Car Wash” investigations at the Brazilian petrochemical company that was once the 5th largest company in the world. Petrobras has structured a significant part of its assets through the Netherlands and one of the entities issuing Petrobras securities (Petrobras Global Finance B.V.) is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Moreover Petrobras is benefiting from the Dutch tax environment and Dutch investment protection treaties.
