Stryker to acquire surgical equipment company Berchtold for $172M


Stryker (SYK -0.1%) agrees to acquire privately-held surgical equipment company Berchtold for an enterprise value of $172M.

Berchtold, which has operations in Germany and the U.S., generated sales of ~$125M last year; the company’s products include surgical tables, equipment booms and surgical lighting systems.

SYK expects the transaction to be neutral to its 2014 earnings excluding acquisition, integration-related and intangible amortization charges.

    Looks like are Stryker are building quite an empire in operating theatre equipment. The acquisitions seems to be blending well with the existing set-up.
