Litigation drives up Sulzer Medica's loss to $717 million

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Swiss company Sulzer Medica suffered a SFr1.19 billion ($717 million) net loss in 2001, mainly as a result of the US litigation over its faulty hip and knee implants, which the company concedes had put its survival in question. However, the Zurich-based company did see total sales rise by 5% to SFr1.42 billion.
