Of the final sum, Koch Industries invested $100 million. The entire Series E stock issued by InSightec equals 29.1% of its outstanding share capital. After the placement, Elbit Medical holds 19.8% (16.7% on a fully-diluted basis) of InSightec's stock.


Founded in 1999, InSightec develops MRI-guided ultrasound devices for targeted surgery. The company previously raised $140 in equity funding, according to Crunchbase data, from Elbit Imaging, York Capital, Exigent Capital Group, GE Healthcare, China-Israel fund GEOC, and Meditech Advisors LLP.

InSightec plans to use the funding towards marketing and commercializing its devices, and for continuing research and development to address neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer, the company said in a statement.


The placement reflects a valuation of $460 million for InSightec, according to Elbit Imaging's December SEC filing.
