Invacare to Sell Medical Supplies Unit to Assuramed for $150M
Invacare Corporation (NYSE: IVC) and AssuraMed announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement under which Invacare will sell Invacare Supply Group (ISG), its domestic medical supplies business, to AssuraMed for $150 million, subject to certain closing adjustments. This divestiture is consistent with Invacare's focus on its globalization strategy to harmonize core global product lines and reduce complexity within its business. For AssuraMed, a leader in wholesale and home-delivered medical supplies across the United States, this strategic purchase allows the company to strengthen its position as a leader in the medical supplies industry.
The transaction, which is expected to close in early 2013, is subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions.
