The total cash consideration for the transaction was approximately $3.9 billion USD. The transaction was financed through a combination of cash generated from overseas operations and debt issuances. The impact of the acquisition was included in Baxter’s third quarter and full-year 2013 guidance.
Baxter International Inc., through its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures and markets products that save and sustain the lives of people with hemophilia, immune disorders, infectious diseases, kidney disease, trauma, and other chronic and acute medical conditions. As a global, diversified healthcare company, Baxter applies a unique combination of expertise in medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology to create products that advance patient care worldwide.
This release includes forward-looking statements concerning Baxter’s
acquisition of Gambro AB and outlook for 2013.
The statements are
based on assumptions about many important factors, including the
following, which could cause actual results to differ materially from
those in the forward-looking statements: the company’s ability to
successfully integrate Gambro, realize the anticipated benefits from the
acquisition in the amounts and at the times expected and generate the
sales included in the company’s outlook for 2013; demand for and market
acceptance of new and existing products; actions of regulatory bodies
and other governmental authorities; changes to applicable laws and
regulations; product development risks; product quality or patient
safety concerns; the impact of global economic conditions on the company
and its customers and suppliers; and other risks identified in Baxter’s
most recent filing on Form 10-K and other SEC filings, all of which are
available on Baxter’s website.
Baxter does not undertake to
update its forward-looking statements.
