CAESAREA, Israel, June 7, 2021 — IceCure Medical Ltd. (TASE: ICCM) (“IceCure” or the “Company”), developer of the next generation minimally invasive cryoablation technology that destroys tumors by freezing, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with KTRFIOS IMPORTACAO E EXPORTACAO LTDA (the “Distributor”) to sell the Company’s ProSense™ Cryoablation System in Brazil, with the largest population in Latin America.
The agreement carries a duration of five years from the time ProSense™ receives regulatory approval in Brazil no later than 18 months from signing, includes a guarantee of at least $6.6 million in total sales, and can be extended for an additional five years.
“We are excited to expand our global reach into Brazil, which represents our first entry into the critically important Latin American market,” commented Tlalit Bussi Tel Tzure, IceCure’s Vice President of Business Development and Marketing.
This agreement follows similar agreements signed by IceCure in the United Arab Emirates, India, Thailand, and other countries, provides further validation for the ProSense™ cryoablation technology and continues the Company’s mission to bring this technology to all geographies and thus increase sales.
With a total population of more than 200 million, more than 500,000 new cancer cases and more than 250,000 cancer deaths each year1, Brazil has an urgent need for minimally invasive cancer treatments. Bussi Tel Tzure stated, “we are confident that ProSense™, upon regulatory approval, can provide the people of Brazil with a cost-effective, simple procedure (compared to traditional surgical interventions), to save cancer patients time and resources with excellent outcomes”.
