Medical device company SANUWAVE Health has signed a definitive merger agreement with special purpose acquisition company SEP Acquisition (SEPA).
The proposed deal values the combined entity at an enterprise value of $127.5m.
The merged company is anticipated to run under the name SANUWAVE after the intended transaction is concluded.
SANUWAVE’s investors are expected to hold roughly 69.6% of the new company’s equity if the combined entity receives approximately $13m in gross proceeds upon completion.
SANUWAVE CEO Morgan Frank said: “SEPA is a strong, value-add partner and this transaction will allow SANUWAVE to simplify its capital structure and gain a listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market while funding the company for the exciting growth ahead.
“This is the next step in putting the company on sound footing that will allow us to focus on rapid, profitable growth and to garner an equity valuation commensurate with our performance.”
