Established in 2004, Collplant develops and manufactures collagen-based regenerative medical treatments and bio-ink used in 3D printing of tissues and organs. The company combined human genes and tobacco plant DNA to create plants from which human collagen can be harvested.
In September 2017 Collplant announced a $5 million private investment agreement with Lichtenstein-based Alpha Capital Anstalt, a hedge fund controlled by Austrian business magnet Martin Schlaff. As part of the agreement, CollPlant has agreed to list on Nasdaq and has submitted several registration statements to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission since November.
Collplant will remain registered on the Tel Aviv Stock exchange under the ticker CLPT. On Nasdaq, the company will offer American Depositary Shares (ADSs), each representing 50 of the company's ordinary shares.
CollPlant’s listing on Nasdaq will increase the company’s global exposure with the potential of facilitating collaborations and increasing its business operations, CollPlant’s CEO Yehiel Tal said in a statement.
