Bridge to Life, a leading global supplier of organ preservation solutions and organ perfusion technologies, announced the first closing of a growth financing, totaling $56 million, led by Perceptive Advisors.

The capital raise consists of a secured credit facility and a Series A preferred equity investment. Dr. Peter Maag, Executive Chairman of CareDx, participated in the financing and will join Bridge to Life’s Board of Directors.

Bridge to Life intends to use the proceeds from this transaction to further the development and commercialization of its organ perfusion systems and preservation technology portfolio. The Company is currently developing both warm and cold perfusion technologies for the enhanced preservation and transportation of livers, kidneys, lungs and hearts.

“We are pleased and excited to partner with the world–class healthcare investment team at Perceptive, ” said Bridge to Life Chairman and CEO Stevan Schweighardt. “This financing will help accelerate the development of our multi–organ machine perfusion systems platform which will revolutionize the existing organ transplantation landscape.”

“Perceptive is delighted to provide growth capital and insight to support the Bridge to Life mission of improving the standard of care for organ transplantation. This is an exciting time in the Company’s history as it continues to innovate and expand its offerings to address the most significant challenges of organ transplantation,” said Sam Chawla, Portfolio Manager at Perceptive Advisors.

Piper Sandler acted as exclusive financial advisor to Bridge to Life.
