We were proud to announce the FDA clearance of our OneRF Ablation System, the Company’s first device that has an indication for both recording electrical activity as well as ablation of nervous tissue and the first device with an FDA clearance. We believe this device has the capability to create a paradigm shift in neurosurgical procedures. We expect to commercially launch this product either directly or with a strategic partner in the first half of 2024. This represents the third FDA clearance in the Company’s history and a monumental achievement. In addition, Zimmer Biomet continues to expand the commercial launch of our Evo sEEG electrode as centers receive approval from their respective product committees to trial the technology. We continue to be bullish on the opportunity to deliver drugs or gene therapies and record the impact of these therapies using our sEEG electrode. We have already held discussions with a Company that has strong interest in using our electrode in their clinical trial to evaluate the performance of their therapy. The Company has made great strides in all areas, and I look forward to continuing to lead the Company as we execute our strategic plan.”
