Mindray Medical Completes Acquisition of Datascope's Patient Monitoring Business

SHENZHEN, China, May 15 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), a leading China-based developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Datascope Corporation's patient monitoring device business pursuant to the terms of the definitive agreement entered into on March 11, 2008.

The combined business benefits from Mindray's integrated engineering and manufacturing platforms, Datascope's established brands, reputable products and services and extensive direct sales and service capabilities in the United States and Western Europe.

''We are pleased to complete this acquisition, which represents a significant milestone on our path to becoming a leading global medical device company,'' said Xu Hang, Mindray's chairman and co-chief executive officer. ''This transaction ensures sustainable high growth for our international business and gives us immediate access to an established network of hospital customers in the U.S., the world's single largest healthcare market. We're optimistic about the growth potential of our combined business and believe we are now even better positioned to address the growing trend of cost-conscious healthcare spending worldwide.''

Under the agreement, Mindray has acquired Datascope's patient monitoring device business for a total purchase price of US$209 million in cash, as adjusted for working capital at the closing date.
