Boston Scientific to Acquire Cameron Health for $150M Up-Front + $150M Upon FDA Approval

Boston Scientific announced the exercise of its option to acquire Cameron Health.  Cameron Health developed the world’s first and only commercially-available subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator – the S-ICD® System that I blogged about a few weeks ago.

The agreement calls for an upfront payment of $150 million, payable upon transaction closing, an additional potential $150 million payment upon FDA approval of the S-ICD System, plus up to an additional $1.050 billion of potential payments upon achievement of specified revenue-based milestones over a six-year period following FDA approval.  Closing of the transaction is subject to customary conditions, including relevant antitrust clearance, and is expected to occur in the second or third quarter of 2012.
