Analogic Completes Acquisition Of Ultrasonix

PEABODY, Mass., March 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Ultrasonix Medical Corporation for a purchase price of approximately $83 million, subject to a final adjustment as provided in the purchase agreement.

Jim Green, Analogic president and CEO, commented, "Now that the acquisition is complete, the combination of the Ultrasonix and BK Medical brands will make our Global Ultrasound Group even stronger. With Ultrasonix's point-of-care and general imaging products and established sales channel, we plan to accelerate our expansion into the fast growing, $500 million point-of-care market, making Analogic a preeminent supplier of procedure-driven, mobile ultrasound solutions."

"I am very pleased to welcome the Ultrasonix team to Analogic," commented Farley Peechatka, senior vice president and general manager of Analogic's Global Ultrasound Business.

We are committed to a smooth integration and look forward to delivering on the growth opportunities that result from this business combination."
