ATEC acquires robot system from Accelus for $55M cash.

TAKE HOME MESSAGE: ATEC has leveraged their all time high stock price, sold $66M in stock and paid $55M to acquire the REMI Robotic Navigation System from Accelus.

Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATEC), a provider of innovative solutions dedicated to revolutionizing the approach to spine surgery, announced today that it has acquired all assets related to the REMI Robotic Navigation System from Fusion Robotics, LLC, a privately held medical technology company, for a purchase price of $55 million.

The REMI (Robotic-Enabled Minimally Invasive) System is an intra-operative platform developed by spine experts with deep navigation and robotics know-how that integrates navigation and robotics into spine procedures utilizing either a 3D imaging scan or 2D fluoroscopic images of the patient. REMI’s small, table-mounted navigation system guides instrumentation and implants to a precise destination during surgery. The incorporation of REMI into ATEC’s procedural strategy will improve surgical predictability, reduce radiation exposure and enhance intra-operative precision.
