New branding reflects Company's vision to be the leader in the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence in Women

Completion of PURSUIT follow-up visits anticipated by the end of 2022 with topline results expected shortly thereafter

ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2022 / Viveve Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIVE), a medical technology company focused on women's health and the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI), today announced the launch of a company-wide rebranding initiative that will include content and new graphic elements related to the treatment of SUI in women. The rebranding is being completed in advance of the planned reporting of topline results from Viveve's pivotal U.S. PURSUIT clinical trial in early 2023.

"As a company, Viveve has been dedicated to advancing innovative treatments that can improve women's health and quality of life. This rebranding effort strongly reinforces our commitment to bringing a new treatment option to the millions of women around the world who are living with SUI," said Scott Durbin, Viveve's chief executive officer. "As we plan for the completion of the landmark PURSUIT clinical trial and presentation of data in early 2023, we are also dedicated to bringing both clinicians and patients the information they need to make informed treatment decisions and to demonstrate our support for the SUI community in all of our communications materials and efforts."

The Viveve rebranding effort premiers a new corporate website that includes content addressing the prevalence of SUI in women and the current unmet need for a noninvasive treatment option. Stylish new design elements include vibrant color palettes, updated graphic elements and new layout for easy access to information for clinicians, investors, patients, and other audiences. The new brand designs will be carried through all customer and public-facing communications from Viveve including presentations, educational materials in both print and digital media, and the Company's social media channels.

"The past three years have been transformational for the Company, with our entire organization working diligently to advance our SUI clinical development program, building on our foundation of strong clinical evidence," continued Mr. Durbin. "With this rebranding effort, all communications from Viveve will demonstrate our vision of a brighter future for the millions of women in the U.S. alone, with SUI, who may benefit from a noninvasive, safe and durable, single-session SUI treatment option."

About Viveve

Based in Englewood, Colorado, the Company is conducting a pivotal U.S. clinical trial called PURSUIT, using its novel, dual-energy treatment for SUI in women. The internationally patented Viveve® System incorporates Cryogen-cooled Monopolar Radiofrequency technology to uniformly provide an endovaginal treatment that is non-ablative. In the U.

Viveve received FDA approval of its Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application to conduct the multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, sham-controlled PURSUIT trial for improvement of SUI in women in July 2020, and FDA approval of its requested IDE protocol amendments in December 2020. The clinical trial was initiated in January 2021, and completion of subject enrollment was announced on December 14, 2021. Completion of subject follow-up visits is anticipated by the end of 2022, and topline results will be reported shortly thereafter. If positive, results from the PURSUIT clinical trial may support a new SUI indication in the U.S.
