Inspira Technologies Signs a Strategic Agreement in the U.S. to Target $212 Million for Inspira Over a 7-Year Period, Subject to Regulatory Approvals
The agreement is with U.S. based Glo-Med Networks for the potential deployment of 2,121 ART Systems in 6 U.S. States
Ra’anana, Israel, January 31, 2022 – Inspira Technologies OXY B.H.N. Ltd. (Nasdaq: IINN, IINNW) (the “Company” or “Inspira Technologies”), a groundbreaking respiratory support technology company, announced today that it has signed an exclusive summary distribution agreement with Glo-Med Networks Inc. (“Glo-Med”), for distribution across 6 states in the United States (Texas, New Jersey, New York, Florida, North Carlina and South Carolina).
Glo-Med targets to meet the growing demand for innovative medical devices and related products in domestic and international markets. Glo-Med maintains extensive access to next-generation medical products globally via long-term partnerships and relationships with medical providers, as well as through their sister company, Med-Stat Consulting Services, Inc.
The summary distribution agreement will be followed by a more comprehensive agreement. The agreement with Glo-Med follows the distribution agreements signed in the last quarter of 2021 targeting approximately $174 million in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, and Slovakia) subject to regulatory approvals. The agreement with Glo-Med has an initial term of 7 years, subject to the completion of product development and relevant regulatory approval. The parties will collaborate on the marketing and deployment of the ART system, designed to treat deteriorating respiratory failure patients, while they are awake and spontaneously breathing. The ART, an early extracorporeal respiratory support system, has the potential to minimize the need for invasive mechanical ventilation.
Pursuant to the agreement, and in order to maintain exclusivity in the territory, Glo-Med Networks has committed to purchase a minimum order of 2,121 ART systems and 131,413 disposable units for deployment at hospitals and medical centers, subject to regulatory approvals for the sale and marketing of the ART systems in the 6 states in the United States as mentioned above.
Joe Hayon, Inspira Technologies’ Co-Founder, President and Chief Financial Officer, stated: “It is an important milestone in the Company’s strategy to setup the infrastructure to penetrate the U.S. market. It’s an honor for us to work with Glo-Med Networks, and we are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration that may benefit the patient population to improve patient’s outcome. Upon approval of our ART by relevant regulatory authorities, the U.S. market size can provide Inspira Technologies a potential for the deployment of the ART. The Company is developing further infrastructure to penetrate the remaining U.S. states to adopt the ART system.”
Matus Knoblich, Glo-Med’s CEO, stated: “The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the effectiveness of extracorporeal respiratory systems, which have been difficult to access due to their high cost and the large human resources they are required to operate. The ART system is designed to address these challenges and has the potential to meet the unmet need of the medical community and the large patient population with acute respiratory failure. The ART system may become a game changer for the industry, and we are excited and honored to be a strategic and exclusive distributor for Inspira Technologies in the United States.”
