the stigologist: So he had 10% of 5.5m i.e. 550k Went to 2.98% of 14.6m i.e. 430k so sold 120k ish however this LATE notification is contrary to AIM rules so basically McDaid deliberately/accidentally failed to make adequate notification you can make your own inference but mine would be that if you're a big seller you'd want to do it quietly so as not to cause a buyer's strike tanking the share price as you sell down to ZERO my assumption would be McDaid was the seller who has been capping the share price rises and is probably at or close to ZERO now good we have got rid of such an overhang

coolhandfluke: Sorry I wasn't very lucid yesterday evening. I was referring to the share price. I felt the update was very positive and a great step forward and was disappointed the update wasn't reflected in the closing price.Hopeful now the share price will be onwards and upwards.

bones: You all see the video in the header? That was in 2002. See Stig's 20 year share price chart just above?The IP is the same. The heart valve objective is the same (except we have cutting edge 21st century 3D+ modelling tools that were not available then).In effect, our scenario now is probably superior to what it was then. The need for the product is probably stronger now than it was then.Look what speculation did to the share price in 2002.

bones: INTRODUCTION AorTech International plc holds patents, know-how and trade secrets relating to a family of bio-compatible materials. A large range of polymers has been developed within the Elast-Eon(TM) family with different mechanical properties, such as hardness and elasticity. With several million implants and seven years of successful clinical use, AorTech polymers are being developed and used in cardiology and urological applications, including pacing leads, cardiac cannulae, stents and neuro stimulation devices. Devices manufactured from AorTech polymers have numerous US FDA PMA approvals, 510ks, CE Marks, Australian TGA and Japanese Ministry of Health approvals. COMPANY WEBSITE: hTTps://www.aortech.net/ BACKGROUND After several years of under-performance, containing more than its fair share of failed strategies and legal disputes with customers, partners and an ex-CEO (settled amicably in December 2017 for an undisclosed sum paid to AOR), Aortech is finally clear for take off! A new strategy for the company, incorporating the benefits of its long held, valuable IP assets, has finally been revealed (in May 2018); new investors have been rounded up to join the patient ones and top personnel have been recruited. Fresh money is in the bank ready to exploit the new frontiers in cardiovascular medical devices and cosmetic implants. SOME STATS Market capitalisation (June 18) = £6 MILLION Cash in bank (June 18) = £3 MILLION Invested in current proven technology to date = £60 MILLION (including £30 MILLION in heart valve R&D) STRATEGY Aortech is now seeking to maximise value from its IP portfolio by developing certain products while maintaining what the directors believe to be a low cost/risk business model. As part of this strategy, the company is entering into a development and manufacturing agreement with RUA Medical - click here hTTp://www.ruamedical.com - a medical textiles manufacturer, and a development contract with Vascular Flow Technologies - click here hTTp://vascular-flow.com - a medical device development company. If successfully developed and approved by the relevant regulatory authorities, the company proposes to employ a lean sales and marketing strategy for its products, a distribution model to provide access to hospital markets and OEM sales of devices to other medical device companies. Initial product pipeline is to be: 1. Cardiovascular and soft tissue patches 2. Large bore grafts 3. Synthetic heart valve Three new non-executive directors have been recruited, two of whom are from the highest echelons of the cardiovascular world! John Ely (NED - Heart Valve Expert) Geoffrey Berg (NED - Cardiovascular Expert) See this RNS and Offer document for all the details about these products and new directors: hTTps://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/aortech-AOR/share-news/AorTech-International-PLC-Conditional-Placing-and/77473499 hTTps://www.aortech.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/249297-Project-Amplify-Circular-WEB.pdf AORTECH IN THE PRESS Essential introduction here (Scottish Herald 7th July 2018): hTTp://www.heraldscotland.com/business_hq/16339604.heart-valve-pioneer-aortech-international-returns-to-its-scottish-roots/ INTRO VIDEO ABOUT AORTECH'S HEART VALVE Aortech acquired the original IP from CSIRO in the early 2000's - click this link hTTps://csiropedia.csiro.au/elast-eon-biocompatible-polyurethane/. Now AOR is finally funded to complete stage one of the quest to commercialise the holy grail that is the synthetic heart valve. This video is the basic introduction to the technology (note the reference to Aortech in it). !YOUTUBEVIDEO:qfzXvuh2xxc: RNS UPDATE 19th JUNE 2018 Development Agreement signed with Vascular Flow Technologies Limited ("VFT") Excerpt: Bill Brown, Chairman of AorTech, said: "In partnering with the team at VFT, AorTech now has access to Europe's leading experts in the combined field of medical imaging, guided Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics. Combining the design history with this ground breaking imaging analysis should much improve the quality of the product design, reliability and performance." Craig Dunlop, General Manager and Director of VFT, said: "The team at VFT has been very impressed with the quantity and quality of data that AorTech has been able to demonstrate to us. We are very excited to be a key partner in the development of the next generation of prosthetic heart valves which should represent not only a step change in performance, but dramatically reduce the cost to manufacture these life enhancing devices." RNS UPDATE 26th JUNE 2018 New Patent Issued Excerpt: AorTech is pleased to announce that the US Patent Office has recently granted Patent Number 9,994,668 entitled "BIOSTABLE POLYURETHANES". The invention relates to polyurethanes and processes for their preparation. The polyurethanes are biostable, creep resistant, acid resistant and abrasion resistant which makes them useful in the manufacture of biomaterials and medical devices, articles or implants, in particular, long term implantable medical devices in the fields of cardiology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery and gastroenterology. Bill Brown, Chairman of AorTech said: "We are delighted that this US Patent has been issued extending further AorTech's world class portfolio of biostable polymers for medical device use." RNS UPDATE 28th JUNE 2018 Development and Supply Agreement with RUA Medical Excerpt: AorTech has appointed RUA Medical as its development and manufacturing partner to bring the immediate opportunities from this platform technology to market. Bill Brown, Chairman of AorTech said: "In anticipation of entering into this agreement, the AorTech and RUA Medical teams have gone through a detailed project planning process. This process has confirmed to AorTech that RUA Medical is the ideal partner for this project and that its unique combination of R&D, project management, regulatory and manufacturing expertise should help us deliver the soft tissue pericardial patches and large bore grafts to market in a highly efficient manner." Caroline Stretton, Chief Executive Officer of RUA Medical said: "The team at RUA Medical is delighted to be partnering with AorTech on the development and supply of their transformational devices. Superior safety and performance, in conjunction with secure supply, will afford spectacular improvements to the quality of life of end users.

harrogate: Isn't the fact though that this company will never be valued on profits based on its current strategy - it is going to be lossmaking now for the foreseeable future as the money raised gets spent on both the developments and the increased corporate costs The share price will react to any positive news on developments around the heart valve. Given it is years away from any commercial revenue it is all about technical progress and the licensing deal that will be struck if that progress is exciting. The nature of that deal and the name of the licensee(s) will be what drives the value. That might be very exciting indeed but it will not be a slam dunk and I would have thought further funds will need to be raised. I see no reason to think that there is going to be a sudden and imminent large increase in the share price now.

4x4guru: I for one are now more cautious about this stock, plus its my largest holding, it has a great potential in share price but recent activity and financials makes me think the share price could drop a bit lower due to increase risk. I can't work out how much money they are burning and what rate...?

the stigologist: These are another set of notes I wrote after previous RNSes. Just FYI FWIW for any newbies getting up to speed. So the basics on this are that they developed this Elast-eon technology about 17 years ago. Failed to become a device manufacturer themselves. Licensed the materials tech unsuccessfully initially and on bad terms to much bigger players. Got into loads of litigation to try to protect their Intellectual Property etc. Finally seem to have drawn a line under previous litigation and found a licensing partner Biomerics who is delivering. Reckon that having learnt from previous experiences they can licence their tech successfully for some other devices e.g. Breast implants and Heart Valves. Their current valuation is totally out of sync with what even Private Start-ups are valued at (e.g. Edwards buying Harpoon a couple of weeks ago for $100-250m) which don't have the track record of successful clinical use or FDA approvals. AOR AorTech Share Price : 50p Market Cap : £2.8m AorTech has developed biostable, implantable polymers, including Elast-Eon™ and ECSil™ the world's leading long-term implantable co-polymers, now manufactured on their behalf by Biomerics LLC in Utah, USA. With several million implants and seven years of successful clinical use, AorTech polymers are being developed and used in cardiology and urological applications, including pacing leads, cardiac cannulae, stents and neuro stimulation devices. Devices manufactured from AorTech polymers have numerous US FDA PMA approvals, 510k's, CE Marks, Australian TGA and Japanese Ministry of Health approvals. Elast-Eon™ and ECSil™'s biostability is comparable to silicone while exhibiting excellent mechanical, blood contacting and flex-fatigue properties. These polymers can be processed using conventional thermoplastic extrusion and moulding techniques. A range of materials in a variety of application-specific formulations for use in medical devices and components are available. Valuation comparitors :- Major licensee is Biomerics. Private Company. Recently spent $38m on a HQ building alone. hTtp://biomerics.com/elast-eon-bringing-quality-value-medical-device-project/ Edwards Lifesciences bought Harpoon Medical for $100-250m (December 6th 2017) hxxp://www.edwards.com/ns20171206 "The HARPOON system is designed to facilitate echo-guided repair of mitral valve regurgitation, by stabilizing the prolapsed mitral valve leaflet to restore proper coaptation and valve function" Xeltis achieved largest private equity funding round for a medical device in Europe of $52m in 2017 (November 15th 2017) hTtp://www.xeltis.com/news/xeltis-closes-e45-million-series-c-financing/ AorTech comments :- General licenses :- "Significant funding has been achieved by AorTech licencees in developing and commercialising their products with AorTech's Elast-Eon™ seen as critical to their success. In one instance, funds in excess of $100 million have been raised to achieve successful commercialisation." On their Heart Valve Project :- "We have previously announced a potential transaction with a new business established to commercialise the AorTech heart valve technology. Fund raising for the new project is continuing but is not yet finalised and any license will be dependent upon the new business being fully funded. The package of data and information that AorTech is able to deliver to the project is substantial. This ranges from specific manufacturing know how and trade secrets for the precise polymer best suited to a heart valve, detailed design files for a polymer valve with a stress/strain profile substantially less than the material mechanical properties, together with a fully documented manufacturing process that allows a clinical quality valve to be made on a repeatable basis. All of these processes have been developed over a number of years of trial and error and experimentation at considerable investment by AorTech."
