Implantica Group – Brief Introduction

With over 10 years of extensive research and development work, with operations in the heart of
Switzerland along with subsidiaries in the US and other countries, Implantica has been at the forefront
of disrupting the field of smart medical implants and eHealth technologies with an initial focus on
urology and digestive surgery.

Our vision is to become the world leader in Smart Medical Implants and eHealth technologies providing
the best-in-class clinically effective solutions for patients.

We dare to claim that the results of our more than a decade of hard work and passion for developing
breakthrough technologies that bring advanced technology into the body have brought us a long way
on our path to fulfilling that vision.

Implantica’s group of more than 100 dedicated engineers, scientists, associates, and strategic partners
spread across the world have developed an extensive product portfolio of groundbreaking innovations
in implants, eHealth, and wireless energizing platform technology for powering and recharging remote-
controlled devices.

Our patent portfolio and inventions cover many clinical applications and key markets:

➢ >1,000 patents

➢ >300 individual inventions

➢ >40 products in the pipeline

Our ambition to make a noticeable contribution to mankind is already one step closer to becoming a
reality with the introduction of our first breakthrough technology, RefluxStop™, a paradigm shift in the
treatment of GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) that affects more than 400 million people
worldwide. RefluxStop has received CE mark and is now commercially available in key European
countries and receiving encouraging feedback from regulatory bodies in other key regions where we
are seeking market approval.

In addition to RefluxStop™, Implantica has two prioritized pipeline products – UriControl® and
AppetiteControl™ – for treatment of urinary incontinence and obesity, respectively. In addition to these
products, Implantica has a broad patent portfolio covering 40 different future pipeline implants. The
Company has selected three additional implants from its patent portfolio to be developed and
commercialized once RefluxStop™, UriControl®, and AppetiteControl™ have been successfully
commercialized. The two prioritized pipeline products and the next three in the pipeline are all active
implants and utilize the Company’s proprietary wireless energizing platform and e-InVivo™ eHealth
platform.

medical needs while at the same time offering a unique opportunity for healthcare systems to improve
patient outcomes and save costs for the society-at-large.
