Nexstim
Helsinki, Finland

Nexstim is a targeted neuro-modulation company that has developed a proprietary navigated rTMS platform for use in diagnostics (NBS) and therapeutics (NBT). NBS is used in planning brain surgery while NBT is focused on depression and chronic pain. FDA approval for depression was given in 2017, and the focus is on commercial roll out in the US, Europe and Asia.

Investment Perspective

Nexstim has reported encouraging H118 results. The main operational highlight is the first US shipment of an NBT system for use in Major Depression, with further deliveries since the period end. However, the key news is confirmation that the top-line results of the E-FIT stroke trial are expected within three weeks. A positive outcome should lead to the FDA approving Nexstim’s proprietary rTMS platform for the rehabilitation of stroke patients. A comprehensive commercialisation plan has been prepared and a sizeable equity raise to implement this, and fund further clinical development, is planned for later in H218. We value Nexstim at €120m, equivalent to €0.97 per share (fully diluted).
