Medical Imaging Deals Abound

Only half way through October, we’ve seen three transactions targeting a medical imaging company in our Laboratories, MRI & Dialysis sector. That brings to 10 the number of imaging targets in 2015, out of the current total of 39 deals recorded in the sector. It began on October 1, with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA‘s announcement that it was buying Viztek, LLC, a digital software and hardware imaging company, for an undisclosed price. Another optical giant, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation, announced its acquisition of Olea Medical SA, a French medical imaging applications company, for an undisclosed price. The next day, Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) paid $36 million to Platinum Equity for DMS Health Technologies, Inc., a mobile diagnostic imaging company that works with small and regional hospitals. We’ll see what develops in the fourth quarter, and keep you posted.
