Share:

OmniGuide Holdings, Inc., a leader in patient-safety focused advanced
surgical energy tools, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire
Lisa Laser Products OGH, a surgical laser company based in
Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany, with a core competency of developing lasers
for urological applications. Additional terms of the acquisition were
not disclosed.

According to the American Urological Association, over 50% of men will
suffer from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) by the age of 60, a
condition that affects the quality of life of 30 million men in the USA
alone. Since 1989, Lisa Laser has developed market-leading surgical
laser technologies, consisting of both Thulium and Holmium lasers, to
address the growing BPH trend, as well as other urological and
soft-tissue related conditions which require minimally invasive surgery.
Lisa Laser's product portfolio, which consists of laser hardware units,
laser fibers, endoscopes and other accessories for laser assisted
surgery, is renowned for its clinical efficacy and patient-safety
oriented properties. Lisa Laser's technologies have positively impacted
surgeons and their patients alike through their proven abilities to
improve surgical outcomes such as the reduction of bleeding and the
preservation of healthy tissue.

"Patient safety and positive surgical outcomes remain our top priority.
Lisa Laser's portfolio of electrically-silent, precision based surgical
therapies directly aligns with OmniGuide's goal of benefiting patients
through the preservation of healthy tissue during surgery, " said John
T. Buhler CEO of OmniGuide, Inc.

"We are pleased to be joining the OmniGuide team as we combine both our
Thulium and Holmium laser technologies with OmniGuide's market leading
CO2 lasers and enhanced-safety flexible fibers," said Dr. Heinrich-Otto
Teichmann, Managing Partner with Lisa Laser. "As we strive to make
tissue-sparing laser technology the global standard of care, we look
forward to the innovation synergies presented by our combined
capabilities."

Based on the expected completion of the acquisition within Q3 2018,
OmniGuide, Inc. anticipates integrating Lisa Laser Products OGH through
its Strategic Business Unit (SBU) approach, whereby it would complement
existing SBU's OmniGuide Surgical and Domain Surgical.
