  • 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.
