Medtronic has completed the acquisition of Kyphon

Medtronic : 02 November, 2007  (New Product)
The total value of the transaction, including payment of Kyphon debt, was approximately $4.2 billion.
“The product lines and the geographic presence of these two companies are highly complementary,” said Bill Hawkins, president and chief executive officer of Medtronic. “We expect this acquisition to help accelerate the growth of Medtronic’s existing spinal business by extending our product offerings into some of the fastest growing product segments and enabling us to provide physicians with a broader range of therapies for use at all stages of the care continuum.”

Richard Mott, president and chief executive officer of Kyphon, said, “We are pleased that we were able to deliver outstanding value to our shareholders that fully reflects Kyphon’s innovation and growth potential. Combining our business with Medtronic’s Spinal business is also advantageous for our customers, their patients and our employees. As a part of the Medtronic organization, we will increase our ability to meet the needs of our clinician customers and the patients they serve with our technologies, and our employees will have the opportunity to become part of a larger organization with a shared vision as well as additional career and advancement opportunities.”

Medtronic also announced that Kyphon has completed its acquisition of the non-vertebroplasty assets of Disc-O-Tech Medical Technologies, and has entered into a definitive agreement to divest substantially all of the assets relating to the Disc-O-Tech Confidence product line.
