"Delisting from the TASE is the next step in Collplant's development as the company becomes more U.S. facing," said Collplant CEO Yehiel Tal in a statement.


Collpant registered on Nasdaq following a September investment agreement with Martin Schlaff's Lichtenstein-based hedge fund, Alpha Capital Anstalt. The private investment agreement netted Collplant $5 million. The company is offering American Depositary Shares (ADS) on Nasdaq under the ticker CLGN.
