Spectranetics completes acquisition of AngioScore


The Spectranetics Corporation has announced that it has completed the acquisition of AngioScore, a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of cardiovascular, specialty balloons, for US$230 million in cash, along with additional contingent commercial and regulatory milestone payments.

“We are very excited to complete this important transaction,” says Scott Drake, president and chief executive officer of Spectranetics. “AngioScore meets our criteria with an exceptional strategic fit, leverageable call points, differentiated technology and clear operating efficiencies. With AngioScore now a part of our company, we have a meaningfully expanded market opportunity and a compelling product portfolio.”

AngioScore’s product and distribution platforms diversify Spectranetics’ portfolio while expanding physicians’ options to treat critical limb ischaemia, in-stent restenosis, calcified lesions and chronic total occlusions.
