Inverness becomes Alere

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Inverness Medical Innovations plans to change its name to Alere as part of a strategy to leverage its combined offerings and maximize visibility and growth, the firm announces May 18. The diagnostics and health management services firm currently uses the Alere name (which means "to nurture" in Latin) for its health management services. "Therefore, the name already benefits from recognition within the healthcare community," the firm says. Inverness acquired health management services firm Alere in 2007 and will seek shareholder approval for the name change at its July 14 annual meeting; the company's stock symbol would change from "IMA" to "ALR" (1"The Gray Sheet" Oct. 29, 2007)
