Datascope Acquires Peripheral Vascular Stent Business of the Sorin Group

July 10, 2008 - Datascope Corp. said today it exercised its option to acquire the Peripheral Vascular Stent business of the Sorin Group of Milan.

The acquisition follows Datascope’s successful experience as exclusive distributor of the Sorin peripheral stent product line in Europe, in which sales have grown rapidly since the product launch in January 2007. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, sales are expected to rise 27 percent above last year to an annualized level of $6.6 million. With the acquisition, Datascope now gains the opportunity to market the product line throughout the world. Datascope estimates the worldwide market at $800 million annually, of which $200 million is in Europe, $500 million in the U.S. and $40 million in Japan.

Sorin's innovative vascular peripheral products are used by vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease. Unlike competitive bare metal stents, the Sorin stents incorporate Carbofilm Technology, which has long been a standard for treating the surface of mechanical heart valves. As part of its acquisition, Datascope has also received exclusive, worldwide rights to use the Carbofilm Technology and other intellectual property within the endovascular field of use. The product line includes balloon-expandable and self-expanding stent systems, as well as balloon systems for use in Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA).
