Stryker Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire the Neurovascular Division of Boston Scientific for $1.5 Billion
Date:10/28/2010

ost innovative sectors in medical technology," said Stephen P. MacMillan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stryker. "Today, through our Instruments, Orthopaedics and Spine divisions, Stryker offers complementary neurosurgery products to many of the same customers called on by Boston Scientific Neurovascular.  Going forward, the proposed acquisition allows us to substantially broaden our product offerings and relevance to these customers and over time, we believe will afford us with a unique competitive advantage. We are highly enthusiastic regarding the prospects for Boston Scientific Neurovascular's next generation portfolio of coils and other diagnostic and therapeutic devices, which are expected to provide the opportunity to regain momentum and return to market leading growth."

Boston Scientific Neurovascular sells products through a direct sales force in the U.S. and a combination of direct sales force and distributors outside the U.S.  From 1997 to 2005, Boston Scientific Neurovascular expanded its core hemorrhagic stroke device offerings to include new detachable coils in the GDC® family as well as a new family of Matrix® detachable coils. Additionally, Boston Scientific Neurovascular entered the developing ischemic stroke market with stent and balloon catheter launches. Looking ahead, Stryker is excited about the pending launch of a series of next generation neurovascular products with enhanced features and benefits which are expected to drive accelerating top line growth.

According to the American Heart Association's 2010 Heart Disease & Stroke Statistics, stroke is the third most common cause of death and a leading cause of serious, long-term adult disability in the U.S. Each year, approximately 795,000 people in the U.S. experience a stroke. The majority of victims (87%) have an ischemic stroke, which occurs when arteries are blocked by blood clots or other deposits or narrowed due to atherosclerosis
