PRESS RELEASE

Obalon Enters into a Distribution Agreement for Qatar

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:OBLN), a vertically integrated weight loss solutions company with the first and only FDA-approved swallowable, gas-filled intragastric balloon system for the treatment of obesity, announces that it has entered into a one-year agreement with Al Danah Medical Company (“Al Danah”) for distribution of the Obalon Navigation Balloon System in Qatar.  Obalon has terminated its agreement with Bader Sultan and Bros. Company for distribution of its prior-generation balloons, which was set to expire on December 31, 2019.

Obalon’s President and CEO, Bill Plovanic commented, “While our primary focus is on the development and operation of Company-owned retail treatment centers in the U.S., we recognize that obesity remains a global epidemic. We believe the agreement with Al Danah makes clinical and economic sense and allows us to take a small step forward internationally, without distracting us from our primary commercial strategy in the United States.”
