Stryker to Acquire Sage Products LLC

Stryker Corp. has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Sage Products LLC from Madison Dearborn Partners in an all cash transaction for $2.775 billion. The transaction includes an anticipated future tax benefit that is expected to exceed $500 million and to positively impact cash flows over approximately 15 years. Sage develops, manufactures and distributes disposable products targeted at reducing “Never Events,” primarily in the intensive care unit and MedSurg hospital unit setting. Sage sales for fiscal 2015 totaled $430 million, up 13 percent over the prior year.

“The company’s established leadership team and innovative products that help prevent hospital acquired conditions have driven consistent double-digit sales growth,” stated Kevin A. Lobo, chairman and chief executive officer. “This acquisition aligns with Stryker’s focus on offering products and services that support a mindset of prevention, specifically in the area of ‘Never Events’ such as hospital acquired infections. Today, through our medical division, Stryker offers products that are complementary to those produced by Sage. Sage has a 45-year history of focus on patients and caregivers that is evident in their culture and fits well with our medical division. This business will also provide a consistent disposable revenue stream that will complement our capital equipment offerings. We look forward to welcoming the Sage team to Stryker.”

Founded in 1971 and headquartered in Cary, Illinois, Sage is a developer of products and proprietary solutions designed to help improve outcomes for patients and clinicians, while maximizing efficiency and profitability for health care facilities. Sage’s products include solutions for oral care, skin preparation and protection, patient cleaning and hygiene, turning and positioning devices and heel care boots.
