DENVER, NC / April 15, 2019 / CVR Medical Corp. (CVM.V) (TSXV: CVM) (OTCQB: CRRVF) (“CVR Medical”) a Canadian listed and US based healthcare company in the medical device sector, announced that it is currently in negotiations with Canon Financial Services, Inc.(CFS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., to provide leasing services for CVR Medical’s Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) line of products to the healthcare market. This agreement will expand the relationship between CVR and the Canon group company, Canon Virginia, Inc., which is currently contracted for the manufacturing of the CSS.
The arrangement with CFS would represent an important step in CVR Medical’s progress toward increasing the accessibility of early-stage care for vascular disease. With best-in-class services for end-user financing solutionsand the global strength of the Canon brand, a broad spectrum of clinical professionals, including primary care physicians, would be able to incorporate the CSS into their everyday practices with confidence and financial flexibility.
Peter Bakema, CVR Medical’s Chief Executive Officer, states, “We believe that the future of vascular care lies in the highly-accurate, non-invasive, diagnostic technique that the CSS is designed to offer. It is our intention to not only provide value for large institutional medical providers, but also to make our technology available to office-based clinicians. We are proud to expand our relationship with Canon. We feel that this new financial collaboration will help to significantly increase the CSS’s market entry potential once FDA approval is received and simultaneously enhance the financial strength of our organization.”
“As a true captive leasing company our goal is to provide best in class products and services to our Canon family of products”, stated Dominic Janney Vice President of Sales and Servicing for CFS. We are honored to have been selected by CVR Medical to not only assist with a solution which will lower the total cost of ownership of their product, but to also be a partner in their journey. We look forward to this exciting new opportunity and creating products and programs that will address the changing needs of the customers through innovation and best in class service.
