Nexstim Plc, a medical technology company aiming to improve rehabilitation for stroke patients through the use of non-invasive brain stimulation, today announces that it has selected Sanmina Corporation, to manufacture all systems.

Nexstim's evaluation of primary subcontractors has been conducted in order to better support the Company's long-term growth strategy with increased demand for its Navigated Brain Stimulation (NBS) and Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT®) systems. Sanmina's global presence will provide greater flexibility and the ability to produce systems closer to our customers in key markets. It is also anticipated that Sanmina will be able to provide customer after-sales services.

The transfer of system production from Innokas Medical Oy is not expected to affect delivery capabilities for financial year 2015. The transfer project is expected to be completed within six months. The expenses of this transfer are not estimated to be significant.

Janne Huhtala, Chief Executive of Nexstim, commented: "The selection of Sanmina, a global leader in medical manufacturing signals the strong long-term growth strategy for Nexstim for both our NBS and NBT® systems. We look forward to working with Sanmina as we near the interim data read-out from our Phase III study of NBT® in stroke therapy."

Eeva-Liisa Kylmanen, Vice President and Plant Manager, Sanmina Haukipudas commented: "Sanmina is proud to partner with companies like Nexstim, helping them produce products that improve patient outcomes and quality of life with innovative new treatments for brain stimulation and therapy."
