Teleflex announced on August 22, 2022 that it has reached an agreement to acquire Standard Bariatrics. Teleflex agreed to acquire Standard Bariatrics for a cash payment of $170 million at closing and could pay up to an additional $130M if Standard Bariatrics reaches certain commercial milestones.
Standard Bariatrics is a Cincinnati-based company that makes the Titan SGS® surgical stapler for bariatric surgery, among other products.
Teleflex claims to have a well-developed existing bariatric surgeon call point and a portfolio of surgical devices, including products for interventional cardiology, urology and vascular access. As part of the announcement, Liam Kelly, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Teleflex, stated the following regarding the acquisition:
The acquisition of Standard Bariatrics adds an exciting and differentiated product serving the large and growing sleeve gastrectomy market, which we estimate to be approximately 120,000 procedures annually in the U.S.
The announcement states that the deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022, subject to regulatory approval. Teleflex plans to finance the acquisition at closing through borrowings under its revolving credit facility based on the announcement.
