Axonics Modulation Technologies (NSDQ:AXNX) said today that the underwriters behinds its $120 million initial public offering exercised their over-allotment option, adding another $18 million to its coffers.
Irvine, Calif.-based Axonics, which makes the r-SNM device sacral neuromodulation system for treating overactive bladder, fecal incontinence and urinary retention, said the underwriters picked up 1.2 million shares at $15 each, taking gross proceeds from the flotation to $138 million.
Axonics closed the IPO Nov. 2, after first setting a range of $93.3 million to $106.7 million which it later increased to $120 million.

In its initial IPO filing, Axonics said it expects to file a pre-market approval bid with the FDA during the first quarter next year.
BofA Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley were joint book-runners, with Wells Fargo Securities as lead manager and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey as co-manager, Axonics said.
