Danaher acquiers Nobel Biocare Holding

US technology and science conglomerate Danaher Corporation, headquartered in Washington D.C., United Sates agreed to acquire Nobel Biocare Holding , Swiss dental implant maker, for about $2.2 billion. Danaher offered to acquire all oustanding shares for 17.10 Swiss francs, or about $18.31,a piece.

“This combination will help us build a strong platform for future growth,” Henk van Duijnhoven, the senior vice president of Danaher’s dental business, said in a news release.

This offer is recommended by Nobel board of directors to accept.

“We view Danaher as the ideal strategic partner for the sustainable development of Nobel Biocare,” Rolf Watter, the Nobel Biocare chairman, said in a news release.

Nobel Biocare offers dental implants, prosthetics and software used in planning dental surgery. Danaher provides technology products and services including health care, consumer goods and pharmaceuticals.

The offer is subject to regulatory approval. The offer is expected to be completed late this year or early in 2015.

 Nobel Biocare’s board of directors was advised by Goldman Sachs.

 Mr. Stakebay says:

Danaher annual sales from the dental industry will approach $3 billion after the purchase, giving it an “unmatched position” in dental implants as Nobel Biocare will expand the company’s presence in the premium segment of the market.
