Integra LifeSciences Announces Agreement to Acquire Newdeal Technologies

Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (NasdaqNM:IART - News) announced today that it has agreed to acquire the Newdeal group of companies (``Newdeal') for EUR 38.5 million (approximately $50 million at today's exchange rate) in cash, subject to certain adjustments.

Newdeal, based in Lyon, France, is a leading developer and manufacturer of specialty implants and instruments specifically designed for foot and ankle surgery. Newdeal's products include a wide range of products for the forefoot, the mid-foot and the hind foot, including the Bold(R) Screw, Hallu-Fix(R) plate system and the HINTEGRA(R) total ankle prosthesis. The company sells its products through a direct sales force in France, Belgium and the Netherlands, and through distributors in more than 30 countries, including the United States and Canada. Newdeal's target physicians include orthopedic surgeons specializing in injuries of the foot, ankle and extremities, as well as podiatric surgeons, of which there are 3,200 and 2,400, respectively, in the United States. The current products address an approximately $500 million worldwide market.

``The acquisition of Newdeal presents a variety of exciting opportunities for both Integra and Newdeal,' said Stuart M. Essig, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer. ``We will supplement our direct sales force in Europe and increase revenues outside the United States. We also expect to benefit from the synergy between Newdeal's reconstructive foot and ankle fixation products and our regenerative products like the INTEGRA(R) Dermal Regeneration Template, the INTEGRA(R) Bilayer and single-layer Matrix Wound Dressings, NeuraGen(TM) and NeuraWrap(TM), which are used in the treatment of chronic and traumatic wounds of the foot and ankle. We and the management of Newdeal will work together to integrate Newdeal into Integra so that the combined business can maximize these revenue synergies.'
