PROPOSED BUSINESS COMBINATION: Rockley Photonics
ENTERPRISE VALUE: $1.2 billion
ANTICIPATED SYMBOL: RKLY
SC Health Corporation proposes to combine with Rockley Photonics, a leading integrated photonics chipset developer and module supplier for high-volume sensor and communication products. Formed in 2013, Rockley is led by Dr. Andrew Rickman, the founder of the first commercial silicon photonics company, Bookham Technology. Built to address multiple markets, including health monitoring in consumer devices, data communications and machine vision.
Rockley’s “clinic-on-the-wrist” technology is significantly more accurate than LED sensors commonly used today in wearables such as smart watches and fitness bands and allows for continuous monitoring of key vitals in a way that was previously possible only with clinical machines. By bringing laboratory precision diagnostics to wearables, Rockley will enable consumers to detect diseases earlier, better manage nutrition, and focus on preventive healthcare so they can live better and healthier lives.
Rockley has also applied its integrated photonics technology to deliver best-in-class chipsets for high-speed data communications and machine vision applications, including LiDAR. Its technology is protected by over 120 patents and the Company has raised $390 million in funding from over seven years of product development from non-recurring engineering, investors, government grants, subsidies and a range of world-class health-tech and technology VCs, strategic investors, and financial institutions.
Rockley will become a publicly traded company on the NYSE under the symbol RKLY and the Company is valued at a pro forma enterprise value of $1.2 billion.
