Synergetics to sell some surgical equipment assets

O’Fallon-based Synergetics USA Inc. has agreed to sell some of its surgical equipment assets to Michigan-based Stryker Corp. The purchase price was not disclosed.

Synergetics said the agreement calls for it to sell marketing and sales assets relating to the Omni ultrasonic aspirator console products, used in surgery and manufactured by Mutoh Co. Ltd. in Japan. The Omni product line accounted for approximately $3.5 million of Synergetics’ revenue during the 12 months ending Oct. 31, said company President and CEO David M. Hable, in a news release.

The deal also calls for Synergetics to make and supply the instrument tips and other disposable products associated with the Omni line. Those products accounted for $4.1 million of the company’s revenue during the same time period, Hable said.
