MENLO PARK, CA, November 15, 2021– Tivic Health Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: TIVC) (“Tivic” or the “Company”), a commercial-phase bioelectronic medicine company, today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 3,000,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $5.00 per share for gross proceeds of $15,000,000 before deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses. In addition, the Company has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 450,000 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments at the initial public offering price, less the underwriting discount.
The Company intends to use the proceeds for initiatives to grow sales of its ClearUP® Sinus Relief (“ClearUP”) device, including expanding advertising and public relations, growing social media presence, upgrading and optimizing ecommerce infrastructure, online/website design and branding, and other programs to grow awareness of ClearUP. To continue to position Tivic as a trusted brand for evidence-based therapies based on bioelectronic medicine, the Company also plans to expand its clinical research and development activities to identify and validate new product candidates, move them through pre-clinical and clinical development, and develop go-to-market strategies. Additionally, the Company intends to use proceeds to support the launch of the next generation of ClearUP, ClearUP Gen 2, and plans to use the balance for general working capital. Although the Company, from time to time, evaluates potential strategic investments and acquisitions, it does not have any definitive agreements in place to make any such acquisitions at this current time.
