Final price in IRRAS initial public offering set – trading on Nasdaq First North Premier commences today

IRRAS AB (“IRRAS” or the “Company”) hereby announces the outcome of the offering of newly issued shares in the Company (“the Offering”) and its listing on Nasdaq First North Premier.


IRRAS is a commercial stage medical technology company focused on designing, developing and commercializing innovative solutions for various brain pathologies, with a goal of dramatically improving patient outcomes, reducing patient-time in the intensive care unit and medical ward, and providing significant health economic benefits to hospitals and healthcare providers.

The Company’s initial product focus is on intracranial fluid management solutions that utilize its proprietary platform technology, IRRAflow™, which is a CE-marked, fully integrated, closed-circuit medical device system that enables intelligent intracranial fluid management as well as accurate, real-time monitoring of intracranial pressure.

Kleanthis G. Xanthopoulos, Ph.D, President and CEO of IRRAS:

“We are happy and proud of the strong support and trust from specialists and generalists, as well as existing and new investors in our IPO, from both Sweden and internationally. The support confirms the large potential in the flagship commercial platform technology IRRAflowTM. The technology meets much needed demand of innovation in the neurosurgical field and brings clear benefits to patients, physicians and payors alike. The IPO will provide us with the necessary capital to grow sales of IRRAflowTM in the EU, and if approved by the FDA, we expect to launch the product in the US. In addition, we aim to expand our core technology into new applications in neurosurgery, body pathologies and drug delivery, which we believe will create significant long-term value for existing and new shareholders.”
