KFAR SABA, Israel -- April 23, 2013

NLT SPINE, a developer of less invasive spine procedures, was selected as a
Red Herring Top 100 award winner. The list of winners represents Europe’s
leading private companies and startups, with innovative technologies across
their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for
identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors
were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter,
Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way
we live and work.

“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is
never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at
hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after
much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each
year, the competition gets tougher but we believe NLT SPINE demonstrates the
vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring winner.”

NLT SPINE has developed the “non-linear” technology platform enabling
implantation of large spinal implants and instruments through small incisions
for the treatment of degenerative conditions of the spine. With the
“non-linear” technology platform, which is applicable to a wide variety of
surgical spine procedures, implant and instrument size is not limited by the
incision size.

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and
qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation,
management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This
assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of
similar startups in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to see past the
“buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for
the most promising new business models in Europe.
