Combined with the previously announced acquisition of the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR™) system, Colfax has established a new platform to expand the Company’s leadership in extremities.

“These acquisitions are consistent with our strategy to accelerate the growth of our Medical Technology portfolio through attractive additions in strategic, high-growth and high-margin adjacency businesses,” said Mr. Trerotola. “These transactions are immediately accretive to growth and gross margins, with operating margins projected to rapidly expand with revenue growth over time. Our disciplined acquisition program remains active, and we expect to announce additional transactions this year.”
