Symetis TAVR Buy Not About Throwing Shade On Lotus, BSX Insists

Executive Summary

Europe's No. 3 in the transcatheter aortic valve replacement market, Boston Scientific, has inked a $435m deal to acquire its smaller Swiss rival Symetis. The US company bats away skeptics wondering whether the transaction signals Boston Scientific's shaky faith in its own Lotus valve platform, which is currently subject of a major recall. One casualty of the acquisition will be early-stage mitral valve technology company Middle Peak Medical, which Symetis had only bought a month ago.
