Stryker announced this week a definitive agreement to acquire Wright Medical Group for a total equity value of approximately $4.0 billion and a total enterprise value of approximately $5.4 billion Wright Medical, which was founded in 1950, is a global medical device company focused on extremities and biologics. The acquisition of Wright Medical is expected to close in the second half of 2020.

Wright Medical brings a highly complementary product portfolio and customer base to Stryker’s trauma and extremities business. With global sales approaching $1 billion, Wright Medical is a recognised leader in the upper extremities (shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand), lower extremities (foot and ankle) and biologics markets, which are among the fastest growing segments in orthopaedics.

Wright Medical’s leading upper extremity portfolio and advanced preoperative planning technology will significantly add to Stryker’s offering. Additionally, Wright Medical’s lower extremity and biologics will complement Stryker’s portfolio and strengthen the company’s position in this high-growth segment.

“This acquisition enhances our global market position in trauma & extremities, providing significant opportunities to advance innovation, improve outcomes and reach more patients,” said Kevin Lobo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stryker. “Wright Medical has built a successful business, and we look forward to welcoming their team to Stryker.”

“We believe this transaction will provide truly unique opportunities and will create significant value for our shareholders, customers and employees,” said Robert Palmisano, Executive Director, Chief Executive Officer and President of Wright Medical. “By merging our complementary strengths and collective resources, we will be able to advance our broad platform of extremities and biologics technologies with one of the world’s leading medical technology companies that shares our vision of delivering breakthrough and innovative solutions to improve patient outcomes.”
