MAQUET Cardiovascular Completes Acquisition of Atrium Medical Corporation
Date:11/7/2011

WAYNE, N.J., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Cardiovascular, a global leading provider of cardiovascular technologies, announced today that it has received U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) approval to acquire Atrium Medical Corporation, a leader in medical device technologies for interventional cardiology and radiology, chest trauma care and thoracic drainage, vascular surgery, and general surgery, and has subsequently closed the previously announced acquisition. Atrium will now operate as an independent, self-contained business unit of MAQUET Cardiovascular and retain its current brand name.

"The rapid approval from the FTC will allow us to leverage Atrium's synergies sooner and immediately provide our customers with an enhanced product offering," said Christian Keller, president and chief executive officer of MAQUET Cardiovascular. "In addition to Atrium's innovative product line, we look forward to leveraging future scientific and technological advances resulting from this acquisition, so that we may continue to deliver ground-breaking solutions to customers and patients worldwide."

The Atrium acquisition is another example of MAQUET's commitment to improving therapies for patients and acquiring the best products and services to better enhance its offerings to customers and patients.

In 2006, MAQUET Cardiovascular had revenues of approximately $70 million, but has grown dramatically over the last five years due to the Company's ability to continuously improve upon and penetrate the cardiovascular market with existing therapies and through mergers and acquisitions. In 2011, the company is expected to generate an estimated $1 billion in revenues in 2011.

In addition to the Atrium acquisition, MAQUET's parent company, the Getinge Group, also completed a $750 million acquisition of Boston Scientific's cardiac surgery and vascular divisions in 2007, and the $841 million purchase of intra-aortic balloon pump maker Datascope in 2008. Both acquisitions are part of the MAQUET Cardiovascular organization today and product revenues from those acquisitions and continued organic growth continue to play a significant role in MAQUET Cardiovascular's dramatic revenue growth.
