Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG; AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of The Spectranetics Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNC), a U.S.-based global leader in vascular intervention and lead management solutions. Spectranetics’ financial results will be consolidated as part of Philips’ Image-Guided Therapy business group as of August 9, 2017. Spectranetics is currently growing double-digits and projects 2017 sales to be approximately USD 300 million. The company employs over 900 employees. The acquisition is expected to be revenue growth, adjusted EBITA [1] margin and adjusted EPS [2] accretive for Philips by 2018.

“Spectranetics is a highly complementary addition to our Image-Guided Therapy business group and will strengthen its position in a EUR 6+ billion growth market,” said Frans van Houten, CEO of Royal Philips. “The completion of this acquisition will accelerate the realization of our strategic expansion into therapy devices. The combination of Spectranetics’ highly competitive product range and our leading portfolio of interventional imaging systems, devices, software and services will deliver enhanced care for patients by enabling clinicians to decide, guide, treat and confirm the appropriate cardiac and peripheral vascular treatment. ”

Spectranetics' device portfolio includes a range of catheters to treat coronary and peripheral artery disease, and the removal of implanted pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator leads. The Stellarex drug-coated balloon is a key growth driver in this portfolio. It is a next generation drug-coated balloon that provides proven peripheral artery disease treatment and is backed by robust clinical evidence. The Stellarex drug-coated balloon is CE-marked and recently obtained U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Pre-Market Approval (PMA).

The acquisition of Spectranetics was structured as a merger under Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware following the successful completion of Philips’ previously announced tender offer to purchase all outstanding shares of common stock of Spectranetics for USD 38.50 per share in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes.

As a result of the merger, all remaining Spectranetics shares were converted into the right to receive USD 38.50 per share in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes.

Spectranetics has requested that NASDAQ files a Form 25 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission causing the delisting of Spectranetics’ common stock from NASDAQ. Spectranetics’ common stock will cease trading as of the close of trading on August 9, 2017.
