05:20 EDTDHRDanaher to acquire Nobel Biocare Holding for CHF 17.10 per share
Danaher has entered into a definitive transaction agreement with Nobel Biocare Holding AG pursuant to which Danaher or one of its direct or indirect subsidiaries will commence a tender offer for all publicly held registered shares of Nobel Biocare in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $2.2B. The deal is expected to widen Danaher's market presence in the global dental industry and allow Nobel Biocare to accelerate its strategic objectives and future growth. Under the terms of the transaction agreement, Danaher will commence a voluntary all-cash public tender offer of CHF 17.10 per Nobel Biocare share to purchase all of Nobel Biocare's publicly held registered shares. The pre-announcement of the public tender offer is published today. The offer prospectus is expected to be published on or around October 1 and the offer period during which Nobel Biocare shareholders may tender their registered shares is expected to start on or around October 16. In 2013, Nobel Biocare generated annual revenues of approximately $750M. Nobel Biocare would become part of Danaher's $2.2B Dental segment and complements Danaher's position in the implant industry. The Nobel Biocare board has recommended that Nobel Biocare shareholders accept and tender their shares into the offer, which represents a premium of approximately 23% to Nobel Biocare's closing price on July 28, the day before market speculation began regarding a potential sale of the company, or 28% on the basis of the 60 day volume-weighted average price on that date. The offer is expected to be completed in late 2014 or early 2015.
