What’s up with the Avita Medical share price today?

There has been no market-sensitive information released by the company today. However, Avita did release an announcement that explained its management will “participate” in the Lake Street 2021 BIG 5 Conference. The conference is available for virtual attendance on Tuesday 14 September.

The Best Ideas Growth Conference, shortened as the “BIG 5” Conference, is “an invitation-only event, featuring over 100 dynamic, small-cap companies interacting with top institutional investors”.

Avita joins an extensive list of small-cap companies listed on various exchanges. Each name will be either attending and/or participating in the event, sharing their technology or innovative differences.

The companies range across several sectors, including life sciences, semiconductors, 3D printing, and consumer discretionary to name a few.

It is unclear what Avita will be presenting at the event although it may showcase its “point of care autologous skin restoration” technology, known as RECELL. The RECELL technology regenerates damaged skin by using a person’s own skin cells to do so.

Investors seem to have favoured the news and are pushing the Avita Medical share price higher on the day.
