SeQual Technologies to be Acquired by Chart Industries

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- SeQual Technologies, Inc., a pioneer in portable oxygen technology, has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Chart Industries' wholly owned subsidiary, CAIRE Inc., a leading respiratory care products provider for the home health care market. SeQual has built a strong reputation based on engineering experience and a clinical patient focus. As a leader in portable oxygen concentrators, SeQual will complement and broaden CAIRE'S respiratory portfolio—creating a one-stop-shop for a provider's oxygen needs.

COPD is a leading cause of death and it's imperative to find innovative respiratory solutions for this global need, not only in clinical product offerings, but in programs and patient support as well."

"This transaction combines SeQual's technology and patient-focused product development capabilities with our global marketing, distribution and operating expertise," stated Steve Shaw, President of Chart BioMedical. "We expect to integrate the majority of SeQual's operations during 2011."
