This article was originally published in Clinica
In a trading update, UK healthcare firm SSL International said the process of disposing of its medical products division was now well underway. At the end of March 2003, the company appointed Rothschild to oversee the sale of the division, which sells surgical gloves and products for wound management and compression therapy (see Clinica No 1052, p 15). Its sales totalled £197m ($315m) in the year ended March 31, up by 7% on a reported level but flat in underlying terms after a difficult year for surgical gloves. Total group sales were £622m.
