TITAN MEDICAL ENDS NEGOTIATIONS WITH LONGTAI MEDICAL FOR
DISTRIBUTION IN ASIA PACIFIC
TORONTO (April 28, 2017) Titan Medical Inc. (TSX: TMD) (OTCQX: TITXF) (Titan), a medical device company focused on the design, development and commercialization of a robotic surgical system for application in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), announces it has terminated its negotiations with Longtai Medical, Inc. (Longtai), a Canadian subsidiary of Ningbo Long Hengtai International Trade Co. Ltd., for distribution of the SPORT single port surgical system in the Asia Pacific region. Titan has determined to focus on execution for initial commercialization in the United States and the European Union, and will return a $2 million deposit to Longtai.
David McNally, Chief Executive Officer of Titan Medical, said, We are focused on our largest target markets in the United States and Europe. It is worth noting that lengthy discussions with Longtai began in October 2015 and included a good faith $2 million deposit and two term extensions, but with initial priority the United States and Europe, other partnering opportunities and our commitment to focus the contemplated distribution agreement is not in the best interests of Titan. We part ways with Longtai amicably and look forward to reporting on additional milestone progress in the near-term.
