BioSig Technologies Files Application to Uplist to the NASDAQ
Listing to Support Institutional Outreach Ahead of Commercialization
Santa Monica, CA, Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (BSGM), a medical device company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to address an unmet technology need for the $4.6 billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, announced that it has applied to list the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market. Once accepted, the common shares will begin trading on the Nasdaq exchange. This is the Company’s second significant milestone this year after submitting FDA 510(k) application for its PURE EP™ System in March.
“We are extremely pleased to be underway with the process of uplisting from the OTC Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market,” stated Mr. Kenneth Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies. "NASDAQ has proven to provide the best capital formation support to technology companies worldwide. The commitment of capital from shareholders and institutional investors has helped advance us towards meeting other criteria for uplisting to the Nasdaq. Management believes that listing on the NASDAQ will help to broaden our shareholder base, increase appeal to institutional investors, provide shareholders with better liquidity and, ultimately increase shareholder value as we advance through the 510(k) process with the FDA.”
The Company’s application for uplisting is subject to approval based on the ability to meet Nasdaq requirements. During the Nasdaq review process, the Company's common stock will continue to trade on the OTC Market under its current symbol, BSGM.
Analysts forecast the global market for EP devices will grow at a 12.1 percent compound annual growth rate to $5.5 billion by 2019, making it one of the fastest growing medical device segments. In the United States alone, the number of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) arrhythmia ablations is forecast to grow at 10.5 percent from 2012 to 2017.
