MRI Interventions, Inc. To Change Corporate Name to ClearPoint Neuro, Inc.
Company to Trade Under New Name and Ticker Symbol on February 14, 2020
IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRIC) (the “Company”), a leading platform neurosurgery company, today announced plans to change its corporate name to ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. As part of the name change, the Company will release a new logo and launch a new website at www.clearpointneuro.com, and its common stock will commence trading under the symbol “CLPT” upon completion of the name change, which is expected to occur on February 14, 2020. The new name was chosen to better reflect the Company’s expanded strategic focus as the medical device extension of its biologics and drug delivery partners.
Joe Burnett, the Company’s President and CEO commented, “Over the past two years we have worked tirelessly as a team to evolve our portfolio of products and services from a neuro navigation system to a neuro therapy enabling platform. The name ClearPoint reflects our success in those efforts and leverages our proven ClearPoint® System already present in more than 60 active clinical sites in the United States. Additionally, ClearPoint Neuro underlines our commitment and focus to treat the most complex neurological disorders. As our portfolio and the procedures our clinical team support expand beyond the MRI suite, the name MRI Interventions is limiting and simply does not capture the vision or value that we will offer moving forward.”
Nasdaq Bell-Ringing Ceremony and Analyst Day
MRI Interventions / ClearPoint Neuro is scheduled to ring the Closing Bell of the Nasdaq Stock Market on February 14, 2020. Earlier that day, the Company will host its first ever Analyst Day at the Nasdaq Market Center at noon Eastern Time, which will include product and clinical roadmap presentations, the opportunity to meet with executives and surgeons experienced in using the ClearPoint System, and hands-on demonstrations from the Company’s product development and clinical specialist team members.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Nasdaq on this important milestone and educational event,” continued Mr. Burnett. “This is an exciting time for the Company, and we believe the meetings and presentations will be valuable for investors and analysts to see not only our portfolio, but also the excitement and dedication of our team members to improve and restore quality of life for patients and their families.”
