RAMAT POLEG, Israel, May 19, 2011 - Premia Spine, Ltd. announced today that the company acquired
Impliant, Ltd. assets, which include 16 worldwide patents. Premia intends to
commercially launch the TOPS(TM) System and its adjunct Versalink(TM)
Fixation System in third quarter of 2011.

clinically-proven, superior solution to lumbar fusion," stated Ron Sacher,
CEO of Premia Spine. "The TOPS(TM) System has demonstrated its immediate and
sustained benefit for patients suffering from moderate to severe spinal

The TOPS(TM) System was developed in 2004 by Impliant Ltd. and over $50
have been invested in laboratory testing and clinical work to perfect
the implant, the instrumentation, and the surgical technique. The TOPS(TM)
System aims to revolutionize the spinal implant market in much the same way
that total hip and total knee replacement systems displaced hip and knee
fusions. Premia Spine's singular focus today is to provide patients and
surgeons with a clinically-proven superior solution to lumbar fusion surgery.

"We have conducted cases for several years with the TOPS(TM) System
family of products, including single level and multi-level procedures," Bart
