  • DJO Glo­bal, a sub­si­diary of US-based Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion, fully acqui­res Aus­trian Ortho­med Mediz­in­tech­nik GmbH
  • With this verti­cal inte­g­ra­tion, DJO Glo­bal gains a recog­ni­sed team of experts to incor­po­rate acti­vi­ties of its long­stan­ding dis­tri­bu­tion part­ner in Aus­tria in the course of suc­ces­sion plan­ning
  • Ebner Stolz advi­sed Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion in the con­text of finan­cial and tax due dili­gence
Stutt­gart, January 11, 2021 – The audi­ting and con­sul­ting firm Ebner Stolz has advi­sed Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion and its sub­si­diary DJO Glo­bal, the inter­na­tio­nal mar­ket lea­der in reco­very sci­en­ces, on the full acqui­si­tion Ortho­med Mediz­in­tech­nik GmbH.

US-based Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion is a lea­ding diver­si­fied tech­no­logy com­pany lis­ted on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). In the first quar­ter of 2019, Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion acqui­red DJO as an inau­gu­ral invest­ment in its new stra­te­gic growth plat­form in the medi­cal tech­no­logy area from an inves­tor group for USD 3.15 bil­lion.

DJO is a glo­bal pro­vi­der of high-qua­lity medi­cal devices that deli­vers pro­ven solu­ti­ons for mus­cu­los­ke­le­tal health, joint recon­struc­tion, vas­cu­lar health, and pain mana­ge­ment. DJO offers health­care pro­vi­ders and pati­ents a com­p­lete Ortho­pe­dic Con­ti­nuum of Care, from per­for­mance and mobi­lity to sur­gi­cal inter­ven­tion and pos­tope­ra­tive reha­bi­li­ta­tion.

Ortho­med Mediz­in­tech­nik GmbH is the long­stan­ding exclu­sive dis­tri­bu­tion part­ner of DJO Glo­bal for Con­ti­nues Pas­sive Motion (CPM) devices in Aus­tria. CPM devices are used during the first phase of reha­bi­li­ta­tion fol­lo­wing a soft tis­sue sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure or trauma. In the course of the envi­sa­ged reti­re­ment of the cur­rent share­hol­ders, DJO Glo­bal steps in as natu­ral suc­ces­sor.

With the acqui­si­tion of Ortho­med Mediz­in­tech­nik GmbH, DJO Glo­bal gains a recog­ni­sed team of experts. The team has com­pre­hen­sive know-how in local health care pro­ces­ses and an excel­lent net­work inclu­ding rele­vant insti­tu­ti­ons and indi­vi­duals. While Ortho­med Mediz­in­tech­nik GmbH will bene­fit from know­ledge trans­fer and syn­ergy effects in the future, DJO Glo­bal will be able to furt­her acce­le­rate its growth and inter­na­tio­na­li­sa­tion.

Ebner Stolz pro­vi­ded com­pre­hen­sive tran­sac­tion sup­port to Col­fax Cor­po­ra­tion via finan­cial and tax due dili­gence as well as SPA sup­port in coope­ra­tion with the inter­na­tio­nal Nexia net­work.
