Tekcapital plc



Acquisition of Medical Device Licence


Tekcapital plc (AIM: TEK), an international provider of technology and intellectual property services, announces that Belluscura Limited ("Belluscura"), has acquired the exclusive licence and related manufacturing assets for the distribution and sale of the Wire CaddyTM, a proprietary medical device, from Stryker Corporation.


The Wire Caddy is an innovative wire management system that provides lubrication and organization during multi-wire, multi-exchange operating room cases such as cardiology interventions, uterine fibroid embolizations and tibial angioplasties.


The Wire Caddy provides unobtrusive positioning around the patient, allowing immediate access to wires when needed, but keeping them out of the way when not in use. The patented system was developed by a leading interventional radiologist. The device is cleared for sale in the U.S. and previously achieved commercial sales in over 100 hospitals. The consideration for the licence acquisition includes a modest up-front cash payment and the agreement for Belluscura to pay royalties on future product sales.  The product is protected by two issued patents.


Tekcapital holds 74.44% of the share capital of Belluscura.



Dr. Clifford M. Gross, Executive Chairman of Tekcapital, commented: "We are very pleased to announce that Belluscura has acquired the exclusive licence to the Wire Caddy and is executing its model to acquire and market unique medical devices. Belluscura's mission is to provide premium, proprietary medical devices at affordable prices."
