Exactech (Nasdaq: EXAC)
Exactech (Nasdaq: EXAC), a leading developer and producer of orthopaedic implant devices and surgical instrumentation for extremities and large joints, today announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement under which TPG Capital, the global private equity platform of alternative asset firm TPG, will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Exactech common stock. Exactech’s board of directors approved the agreement which provides for the payment of $42.00 per share in cash to all holders of Exactech common stock other than certain management stockholders who have agreed to exchange a portion of their shares for new equity securities in the transaction. Exactech founders Dr. Bill Petty and Betty Petty and CEO David Petty have agreed with TPG to vote all of their shares in favor of the merger and to exchange a significant portion of their shares for new shares in the parent entity immediately following the merger. Such share exchange will be made at the same $42.00 value being paid in cash to Exactech’s shareholders. The transaction values Exactech at $625 million and the cash purchase price represents a premium of approximately 31% over Exactech’s closing stock price on October 20, 2017.
Upon completion of the transaction, Exactech will be a privately-held company headquartered in Gainesville, Florida, and Exactech’s common shares will no longer be listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018, subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by Exactech’s shareholders and termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976
