Cleveland, Ohio – February 1, 2024 – SPR Therapeutics, a private medical device company focused on treating pain and improving the quality of life for patients managing acute or chronic pain, today announced that it has secured $85 million in financing including $25 million in Series D-1 insider equity and a $60 million debt facility. The equity financing was led by Revelation Partners, SPR’s lead investor of the Series D equity financing, and incumbent investors, RC Capital and Mutual Capital Partners. The debt facility is provided by SLR Capital Partners and Armentum Partners served as the Company’s financial advisor.
The funds will be used to capitalize on commercial momentum, customer demand, and market opportunity to expand SPR sales representation in additional U.S. sales territories. “We thank our financing partners and are pleased to raise additional capital to support and accelerate our already significant growth,” said Maria Bennett, President, CEO and Founder of SPR Therapeutics. “We have seen strong adoption of the SPRINT System in the last two years resulting in nearly 200 percent growth of our team, and tremendous year-over-year revenue growth of more than 50 percent from 2022 to 2023.”
In addition to sales expansion, proceeds will support continued product development and build upon the largest set of peer-reviewed published PNS data in the industry. “Supporting the effectiveness of SPRINT as a short-term, 60-day treatment with long-lasting results across multiple areas of pain including low back, shoulder, knee, as well as head and neck is at the core of our commitment to patients. We have recently shared economic assessments highlighting the efficiency and savings potential of SPRINT PNS versus traditional approaches and will continue to advance access to care,” added Bennett.
“We are excited to lead this financing and continue our support of a high-growth MedTech company that is transforming the lives of those living with pain,” said Scott Halsted, Managing Partner at Revelation Partners. “We focus on investments in rapidly growing healthcare companies that are successfully addressing an unmet need, and SPR Therapeutics is a strong example of that given the accelerating adoption within the marketplace.”
About the SPRINT PNS System
The SPRINT® PNS System, by SPR® Therapeutics, marks an innovative shift in the treatment of pain. Our breakthrough, 60-day treatment is a First-Line PNS™ option uniquely proposed to recondition the central nervous system to provide significant and sustained relief from chronic pain — without a permanent implant, nerve destruction or the risk of addiction. The system has been studied extensively for low back pain, shoulder pain, post-amputation pain, and chronic and acute post-operative pain, is cleared for use up to 60 days, and is recognized by leading pain management centers. Market research indicates that this breakthrough neuromodulation treatment is a patient-preferred alternative to more invasive options.
The SPRINT PNS System is indicated for up to 60 days for: Symptomatic relief of chronic, intractable pain, post-surgical and post-traumatic acute pain; symptomatic relief of post traumatic pain; symptomatic relief of post-operative pain. The SPRINT PNS System is not intended to be placed in the region innervated by the cranial and facial nerves.
