TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC)
Shares of TRXC climbed more than 6.5% in after-hours trading Monday as the company said that it has acquired the surgical robotics division of SOFAR S.p.A., an Italian health care company, in a cash and stock transaction with total consideration of $99.8 million.
SOFAR has developed the TELELAP ALF-X(R) advanced robotic system for minimally invasive surgery, which has an active CE Mark.
According to TRXC, the acquisition of SOFAR’s surgical robotics division is anticipated to have a positive financial impact going forward. TRXC believes that the ability to commercialize the ALF-X system in the near-term under the existing CE Mark and the company’s significantly expanded market opportunity could accelerate its revenue growth more than previously anticipated.
TRXC is a medical device company that is pioneering the use of robotics to improve minimally invasive surgery by addressing the economic and clinical challenges associated with current laparoscopic and robotic options.
