Third Quarter and Recent Business Updates

  • Zimmer Biomet agreed to an accelerated $3.5M milestone payment for Evo® sEEG electrode; Zimmer received a warrant to purchase 350,000 shares of NeuroOne's common stock at $3.00 per share.

  • Re-submitted special 510(k) to FDA for <30 day use for the Evo sEEG electrode.

  • Completed ablation system prototypes, including RF generator from RBC Medical and NeuroOne's electrodes and accessories, ahead of schedule and successfully tested the first fully integrated sEEG/RF ablation system.

  • Achieved major milestone with first sEEG electrode case for intraoperative brain mapping at the subsurface level of the brain performed at Emory University.

  • Qualified second source for manufacturing for both the Evo cortical and sEEG electrodes.

  • Completed validation and placed orders for a new cable assembly which will provide significant cost reduction.

  • Established advisory board of leading anesthesiologists and neurosurgeons for spinal cord stimulation program.

  • Completed design verification to extend shelf life for Evo cortical electrodes to three years.

  • Presented at the HC Wainwright Global Investment Conference and the NobleCon 18 Investor Conference.

  • Exhibited the Evo Cortical electrode family in partnership with Zimmer Biomet at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting and the American Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery Biennial Meeting.

  • The first peered-reviewed paper presenting the biocompatibility results for NeuroOne subdural thin film electrodes was  published in the Frontiers of Neuroscience journal on April 29, 2022.

  • The Company's Evo sEEG implantation accuracy study was accepted as a podium presentation at the Biennial Meeting of the World Society for Stereotactic & Functional Neurosurgery, to be held in South Korea September 4-7 2022.

Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne commented, "The Company made great strides in the third fiscal quarter of 2022 and subsequent six weeks. Significant progress was made in testing our Evo sEEG electrode and on August 9th we re-submitted to the FDA a special 510(k) seeking clearance for <30 day use. In addition, we were excited to have the first Evo sEEG case performed by Dr. Robert Gross of Emory University for less than 24 hour use. We were also successful in reducing costs by completing validation of a new cable assembly and extending shelf life of the Evo Cortical electrode product lines. A backup supplier for our electrodes was also qualified providing additional insurance for our supply chain. Regarding our ablation system which we have named OneRF™ we successfully completed bench top testing for the entire system.

Finally, we are excited that Zimmer Biomet agreed to an accelerated $3.5M milestone payment for the Evo® sEEG electrode." Rosa continued, "This amendment to our agreement provides NeuroOne with near term capital without the need for a highly dilutive financing and reinforces our ongoing partnership with Zimmer Biomet."

Upcoming Targeted Milestones

  • Evo sEEG Depth Diagnostic Electrode

  • OneRF(RF ablation system)

  • Partner with a research organization to develop electrode for new clinical indication.

  • Chronic Use Electrode
