Mergers and Acquisitions in the Medical Device Industry Description:
The medical device industry is highly regulated in the US and EU and is driven by innovation and technological expansion. The level of mergers and acquisitions is high, with a total of 171 deals in 2010. This drive toward increasing consolidation is influenced by several factors, most notably the acquisition of novel technologies and the achievement of sales synergies.

Highlights Aggressive consolidation between mid-market cap device companies reduced the pool of companies in this segment by 2007. Thus, the deals after 2007 primarily consisted of acquisitions by large market players of small companies with an innovative focus. Some of the major trends in medical device deals include an increase in private equity investments, crossborder and cross-sector acquisitions, lower transaction values, a decrease in VC funding, and the increased preference for milestone payments over upfront payments. Although large device firms have abundant cash reserves, the blockbuster acquisitions of the past decade have decreased the risk appetite of large players. As a result, VC-backed firms that have achieved commercialization of their technologies are becoming more attractive targets of acquisitions.
