  • Capitalize on opportunities in rapid-growth segments of upper extremities, lower extremities and biologics, including sales of biologics across the entire product portfolio, and increase global growth via complementary international footprints
  • Gain needed scale for both businesses, without diluting focus

The deal is expected to finalize in 1H15.
