Recent News; Boston Scientific Agrees to Sell Neurovascular Business to Stryker

“Boston Scientific Corporation today announced the execution of a definitive agreement under which Stryker Corporation will acquire Boston Scientific's Neurovascular business. The purchase price is $1.5 billion, payable in cash, of which $1.4 billion is payable at closing and $100 million will be payable following the closing and upon the occurrence of the commercialization of the next-generation Target™ Detachable Coils and the transfer or separation of certain manufacturing facilities, which is anticipated to occur over a period of approximately 24 months. The Company expects to record a gain upon closing in excess of $500 million, excluding any impact of the receipt of future milestone payments. Total after-tax proceeds, assuming the achievement of these milestones, are expected to be approximately $1.2 billion. The Company expects to allocate approximately half of the net proceeds to acquisitions and the remainder to the retirement of pre-payable debt. The transaction is expected to close before the end of the year, subject to receipt of regulatory clearances and satisfaction of other customary conditions. As a result of the divestiture, the Company expects 2011 earnings per share to be diluted by approximately four to six cents on both a GAAP and adjusted basis.”
