UK safety equipment company Halma, is strengthening its portfolio with a $90 million buyout of US surgical device group TeDan and its subsidiaries.

The cluster of companies that will now be owned by Halma include TeDan Surgical Innovations, Inc., West Coast Surgical, LLC, Axcess Surgical Innovations, LLC, and TeDan Surgical Innovations GmbH.

The takeover, valued at an initial cash consideration of $89.1 million, will be financed from Halma’s existing facilities. Adjusted for tax benefits with a net present value of approximately $9.8 million, the net initial consideration amounts to approximately $79.3 million. An additional earn-out consideration of up to $10.9 million is conditional on TeDan’s performance in the period up to June 2024.

TeDan’s unaudited consolidated revenue for the 12 months from March 31, 2022, and 2023, was valued at $29.2 million.

Currently Halma’s market cap is valued at $9.8 billion and the FTSE-listed company’s shares jumped from $2581.93 (£2,060) to $2630.81 (£2,099) when the announcement was made.

Post-acquisition, TeDan will operate as a standalone company in Halma’s Healthcare sector, with the current management team remaining.
