Envoy Medical to Begin Trading October 2nd on NASDAQ with Ticker COCH

Management to Attend Major Medical Conference

White Bear Lake, Minnesota--(Newsfile Corp. - October 2, 2023) - Envoy Medical® Inc (NASDAQ: COCH) ("Envoy Medical"), a hearing health company, today announced that its common stock is now trading on the NASDAQ under the symbol COCH.

Envoy Medical is a medical technology company focused on fully implanted hearing devices. Envoy Medical's primary device is the fully implanted Acclaim® cochlear implant, which is distinct from the partially-implanted, partially-external devices currently available. Acclaim® was granted Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is currently in clinical trials. Envoy Medical intends to target a significantly under-penetrated cochlear implant market, which it believes to be more than $80 billion in the US.

"We are excited to take this significant step as we continue to advance our mission to bring innovative hearing solutions to underserved markets," said Brent Lucas, Envoy Medical's Chief Executive Officer.

"We believe that Envoy Medical is now the leading hearing health company primarily listed on a US stock exchange. For us, NASDAQ was the obvious choice for trading platform. They are home to some of the most successful technology companies improving the world and is the right fit for Envoy Medical." Envoy Medical's primary competitors, such as Cochlear Limited (ASX) and Sonova (SWX), have their primary listings on foreign exchanges.

Additionally, Envoy Medical management will attend this year's American Academy of Otolaryngology conference September 30th-October 4th in Nashville, TN. This conference hosts many of the best and brightest otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons from across the globe. Envoy Medical will be discussing the technological progress and the pathway to its pivotal clinical trial planned for 2024.

"Attending the Academy of Otolaryngology conference provides our team the opportunity to discuss our fully implantable cochlear implant design with leaders in the field of hearing health," said Mr. Lucas. "We believe that keeping these medical professionals current with our progress will help speed market acceptance once clinical trials are complete."

Management will also attend and hold investor meetings at the LD Micro Main Event Conference in Los Angeles on October 4, 2023. Investors interested in meeting with management should contact Envoy Medical's Investor Relations team.

About Envoy Medical

Envoy Medical Inc (NASDAQ: COCH), headquartered in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, is a hearing health company focused on providing innovative medical technologies.

Envoy Medical is dedicated to pushing hearing technology beyond the status quo to provide patients with improved access, usability, independence and quality of life.

About the Fully Implanted Acclaim® Cochlear Implant

We believe the fully implanted Acclaim Cochlear Implant is a first-of-its-kind cochlear implant. Envoy Medical's fully implanted technology includes a sensor designed to leverage the natural anatomy of the ear instead of a microphone to capture sound.

The Acclaim is designed to address severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss that is not adequately addressed by hearing aids. The Acclaim is expected to only be indicated for adults who have been deemed adequate candidates by a qualified physician.

The Acclaim Cochlear Implant received the Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019. We believe the Acclaim was the first hearing-focused device to receive Breakthrough Device Designation and may still be the only hearing focused medical technology to receive the designation.

CAUTION The fully implanted Acclaim Cochlear Implant is an investigational device. Limited by United States law to investigational use.
