Expands Xtant’s Product Offering with the Leading PMA-Approved Intralaminar Stabilization Device
Strengthens Surgalign’s Balance Sheet as it Embarks on its Digital Health Strategy
BELGRADE, Mont. and DEERFIELD, Ill., March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: XTNT), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, and Surgalign Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: SRGA), a global medical technology company focused on elevating the standard of care by driving the evolution of digital surgery, today announced the completion of a transaction between the companies.
On February 28, 2023, Xtant Medical and Surgalign entered into a Definitive Agreement and subsequently closed on the transaction whereby Xtant acquired the Coflex® and Cofix product lines from Surgalign for a total consideration of $17 million.
Coflex is an interlaminar stabilization device used after an open decompression that can be performed in various settings, offering a non-fusion treatment option for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients. The number of patients diagnosed globally with LSS is approximately 2.4 million representing the largest single-growing patient demographic in spine. The Coflex device is the only FDA PMA-approved implant for the treatment of LSS, has been implanted in more than 200,000 patients in over 60 countries, is clinically validated with more than 90 peer reviewed publications and has established Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) reimbursement. Cofix is a supplemental fixation device, which is a minimally invasive system intended for use on all levels of the lumbar spine.
“We are thrilled to acquire the Coflex and Cofix product lines, which will help accelerate our top-line growth and position Xtant to achieve critical mass,” said Sean Browne, President and CEO of Xtant Medical. “Coupled with our less invasive Axle interspinous device and Silex SI Fusion product lines, Coflex augments our offering in the fast-growing segments of ASC and outpatient procedures. Aligning with our key growth pillars, this acquisition expands our footprint by adding new distributors and a significant number of trained surgeons to the Company’s network. We expect these products to add approximately $14 million in annual revenue and attractive margins to enable Xtant to achieve profitability in the near future.”
Terry Rich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Surgalign, stated, “We believe that Coflex and Cofix are great products for patients and with Xtant, we have found the right partner that will continue the legacy and drive value for all customers. This transaction provides us with non-dilutive capital which will be used to advance our leading platform of artificial intelligence products across the entire continuum of care. Moving forward, we are focused on commercializing our HOLO Portal Surgical Guidance System, our soon to be launched HOLO AI Insights for research-use, and further developing our HOLO AI platform, while driving innovation in our remaining product lines to improve patient outcomes.”
UBS Investment Bank served as exclusive financial advisor and DLA Piper LLP served as legal counsel to Surgalign and Fox Rothschild LLP served as legal counsel to Xtant in connection with this transaction.
