London, UK – 29 June 2020 – NetScientific plc (AIM:NSCI), the transatlantic healthcare IP commercialisation group, announces that its venture portfolio company G – Tech Medical (“G – Tech”) today announced the completion of $6.7m Series A financing round led by DigiTx Partners.
NetScientific held a convertible loan note of $250,000, together with accrued interest, that had previously been fully impaired to £Nil. As part of the Series A financing the convertible loan note and interest converted to Series A Preferred Shares and Common Form Convertibles with a fair value, based on the financing round, in excess of £400,000. NetScientific now holds 3.8% of G – Tech’s fully diluted share capital.
G – Tech is developing a wearable medical technology that will be used to measure gastrointestinal motility.
Dr Iliev (Interim CEO of NetScientific) commented:
“This is a further example of the value lying in the NetScientific portfolio following the successful funding rounds in CytoVale, Inc., which in December 2019 raised $15 million in financing, for technology enabling early sepsis detection in the emergency department, valuing NetScientific’s interest, which had previously been written off, at £380,000; and Epibone, Inc., which in January 2020 raised a $8 million series seed round, at which point NetScientific converted a convertible loan note of $250,000 plus interest into an equity investment valued at £324,000.”

About G – Tech Medical, Inc.
G-Tech is developing a wearable medical technology that will be used to measure gastrointestinal (GI) motility. The G-Tech system will consist of wireless, wearable electrode patches that read electrical signals at the skin surface, a smartphone app that collects the raw data from the patches via Bluetooth LE and sends it to a cloud server, and data analysis algorithms that process and quantify the motor activity of the digestive organs. The system is currently under development.
The patches will be conforming, water resistant, thin, light and completely non-invasive. Although wearable and smartphone connected, the G-Tech system will be a medical device that will be used under the supervision of physicians rather than a consumer item.
G-Tech’s Patch System will be focused on meeting market driven and clinical needs to create a new standard of care that both dramatically improves outcomes and reduces costs associated with GI conditions. The system will have the potential to transform care for patients, providers and institutions. For further information see www.gtechmedical.com.
