Sofinnova Partners Leads SafeHeal’s €6 Million Series a Financing Round23.3.2018 10:00Tiedote

SafeHeal, an early-stage medtech company specialized in digestive surgery and focused on the development of the Colovac device, announces today that it has closed a €6 million Series A financing round led by Sofinnova Partners. Based in Paris, SafeHeal develops an innovative digestive anastomosis protection device, called Colovac, designed to reduce complications and obviate the need for ostomies for colectomy patients. This technology consists of a minimally invasive and fully reversible implant that remains in place until the body’s natural healing and tissue repair processes are complete, for approximately two weeks, after which it is removed. SafeHeal’s device has the potential to radically transform the market while significantly improve patients’ quality of life by enabling them to resume their normal life without having to bear an artificial anus and wear ostomy pouches for several months. About 270,000 colectomy patients receive an ostomy every year in Europe and the USA, repre

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 10:00Tiedote

Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.
