The SweetSpot platform is currently deployed in the U.S. on a limited basis and, in addition to building out our data management platform, SweetSpot will continue to pursue its pre-acquisition business strategy, marketing the data management service directly to clinics and other customers, including leading academic research centers and integrated delivery networks, such as the VA Medical System. SweetSpot will operate largely independently from DexCom. SweetSpot’s offices and employees will remain in Portland, Oregon and will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of DexCom. We expect the acquisition will close within the next several weeks.
