Axis Wake Research Unveils All-New T22 Watersports Towboat for 2018

LOUDON, TN—(Marketwired – August 17, 2017) – Axis Wake Research has launched the 2018 T22, debuting an all–new hull, innovative styling and multiple cabin upgrades. Plus, for the first time ever, the patented and transformational Power Wedge II is now available for all Axis boats.

Manufactured in Tennessee, Axis boats deliver cutting–edge technology and unparalleled American engineering and craftsmanship.

One of two traditional–bow Axis models, the 2018 T22 features a new hull design for optimal handling and agility on the water while delivering increased storage capacity. In addition, enhanced badging and styling give the T22 an aggressive, eye–catching look.

Meanwhile, a new rear–facing, multi–position Sliding Skybox Seat™ gives passengers an ideal view of the rider without sacrificing comfort.

Ultimate Wave & Wake Creation with Power Wedge II

The state–of–the–art Power Wedge II enhances the internal ballast system and can instantly add up to 1,500 pounds of additional wave and wake–creating capability.

For the first time, Power Wedge II is an available option on all 2018 Axis boats as part of the Performance Surf Package™ (P.S.P.), which also includes Surf Gate™ and Surf Band™.

P.S.P. is a comprehensive system of wake and wave–making technologies that enables customers to adjust the size, length and shape of the wakeboard wake and surf wave for each rider with the touch of a button. While Power Wedge II and Surf Gate offer unprecedented wake and wake–making capabilities, the Surf Band delivers best–in–class control that enables riders to manage all surf–related settings, boat speed and tower speaker volume while on the water.

“Our engineers loaded the 2018 T22 with an abundance of performance, style and comfort–driven features,” said Eric Bondy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Malibu Boats and Axis Wake Research. “And with the addition of Power Wedge II, Axis customers can now enjoy limitless wake and wave creation capabilities.”

The T22 audio system includes MultiZone Control for premium audio performance and customized sound profiles.

An intuitive cockpit layout in the T22 features conveniently–positioned dash panels with soft–key switches, vibrant 3–in–1 gauges and an electronic throttle system. Meanwhile, the standard 6.0 liter Monsoon engine generates 409 ft–lbs. of torque.

The new 2018 T22 comes built to make waves, and it's available now at Axis retailers worldwide.

Medovex Corporation Names Charlie Farrahar Chief Financial Officer

ATLANTA, GA—(Marketwired – Aug 17, 2017) – Medovex Corp. (NASDAQ: MDVX) (“Medovex” or the “Company”), the developer of the DenerveX™ System, a new and novel device designed for enduring relief of Facet Joint Syndrome related to back pain, today reported it has named Charlie Farrahar as its Chief Financial Officer.

Charlie Farrahar is a Certified Public Accountant with over 30 years of managerial finance, administration, human resource and risk management experience in the public, private and non–profit sectors. Mr. Farrahar was the first Chief Financial officer of the Company from its inception through IPO. He remained with the Company as its Secretary only from January 2015 until August 2017, when he agreed to resume the CFO role.

Mr. Farrahar currently serves as Chief Financial Officer for several small private biotech companies in the research and development stage. In 2003 he joined a private governmental assistance startup as it's CFO and Director of Human Resources, helping with the sale of that company to a private entity in 2011 after it had grown to a multi–state operation with over 400 employees. In the late 1990's he was CFO of Credit Depot Corp. (Nasdaq).

At its August 16, 2017 quarterly Board meeting, the Board asked Charlie Farrahar, Company Secretary, to become Chief Financial Officer, a role he held from the inception of the Company through its initial public offering. Jeffery Wright, the former CFO, agreed to become the Company's first Controller.

Jarrett Gorlin, Medovex Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We're excited by the enthusiastic reception we've seen thus far to the Denervex product and realize that we have to properly support sustained revenue growth. One area affected by this growth is the financial/accounting function. With the addition of overseas sales and all the administration that entails, we were no longer able to have just one full–time person in the finance area.”

Gorlin continued, “We asked Charlie Farrahar to become CFO so Jeff Wright could focus on assisting our sales and distribution efforts as we expand sales into multiple countries. They have complementary skill sets and work well together. Their combined experience should allow us to properly steward anticipated growth associated with the launch of a successful new product targeting a broad audience.”

The Company's DenerveX System recently received CE Mark approval and clearance for commercialization in the European countries and offers a unique way to perform a Facet Joint Syndrome treatment.

Facet Joint Syndrome (FJS), also known as spinal osteoarthritis, spinal arthritis, or facet joint osteoarthritis, is a significant health and economic problem in the United States and other countries in the EU and Rest of World affecting millions each year. Current treatment options are generally temporary and there is no proven long–lasting option for FJS.

The DenerveX System is a highly differentiated technology. It denervates and removes capsular tissue from the Facet Joint in one single procedure. Treatment results from the combined effect of a deburring or polishing action and RF ablation treatment on the Facet Joint. Using this new technique, the slowly rotating burr removes the targeted facet joint synovial membrane and joint surface while the heat ablation destroys tissue and denudes any residual nervous and synovial membrane overlying the joint, removing the end point sensory tissue of the joint.

The DenerveX System consists of the DenerveX Kit which contains the DenerveX Device, a single use medical device and the DenerveX Pro–40 Power Generator. DenerveX system is not yet FDA cleared.

About Medovex
Medovex was formed to acquire and develop a diversified portfolio of potentially ground breaking medical technology products. Criteria for selection include those products with potential for significant improvement in the quality of patient care combined with cost effectiveness. The Company's first pipeline product, the DenerveX device, is intended to provide long lasting relief from pain associated with facet joint syndrome at significantly less cost than currently available options.
