"We are excited at the high level of confidence our investors have in our transforming technology and market potential," said Dr. Waleed Hassanein, President and CEO of TransMedics, Inc.  "This financing enables us, over the next two years, to expand our commercial presence into the US market with our heart OCS™ device and to globally launch the OCS™ lung device."

"All of us at Foundation are thrilled to be part of such a high quality company and investor syndicate.  TransMedics' OCS™ system can positively impact the quality of life for thousands of people each year, and will fundamentally change the way society thinks about organ transplantation.  We are proud to play a small role in their team's road to commercial success," said Mr. Adam Grosser, General Partner, Foundation Capital.  

"The field of solid organ transplantation is undergoing revolutionary advances, and TransMedics is positioned to emerge as the world leader in the field.  We at Kleiner Perkins are extremely motivated to invest in companies that matter, that improve peoples lives in a significant way -- TransMedics clearly meets that criteria," said Mr. Joe Lacob, Partner, KPCB.
