CardioNet, Inc. To Acquire CardioCORE Lab, Inc. For $23.5 Million

CardioNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:BEAT), a leading wireless medical technology company with an initial focus on the diagnosis and monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias, announced today that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with cardioCORE Lab, Inc., a leading centralized cardiac testing laboratory with locations near Washington, D.C., San Francisco, CA and London, UK.

The total consideration to be paid by CardioNet will be $23.5 million. At its option, CardioNet may pay up to $3.5 million of the total consideration in the form of common stock. The transaction, subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2012.

Joseph Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of CardioNet, commented: “The acquisition of cardioCORE is an important step toward achieving our previously announced strategic objectives. We are now in an excellent position to leverage our current technology and monitoring infrastructure into a large and growing adjacent market. Additionally, this acquisition goes a long way in mitigating some of our revenue concentration and reimbursement risk. We are truly becoming a full-service cardiac monitoring company.”

Jennifer Cotteleer, President and Chief Executive Officer of cardioCORE, commented: “We are looking forward to joining forces with CardioNet to continue the development of products and services that support excellence in cardiac monitoring for clinical research and patient care. The combined strength of the companies creates the platform to produce ongoing innovation in support of this goal.”

cardioCORE is expected to generate $19.0 to $20.0 million in revenue and $3.5 to $4.0 million in EBITDA for the full year 2012. CardioNet will provide additional information regarding the expected financial impact of the transaction on its second half results during its earnings conference call scheduled for August 8, 2012.
