M&A activity in the medical device industry has fluctuated throughout the past decade, but remained strong in 2012 and the first half of 2013 with large cap companies such as Covidien, Abbott Laboratories and Boston Scientific engaging in multiple transactions across a variety of device and diagnostic segments. Innovations in areas such as minimally invasive surgery have enticed venture capitalists, while the economic crisis and cumbersome regulatory process has slowed others from investing. The current climate for medical device investments and acquisitions requires thorough due diligence of potential acquisitions. New developments such as the medical device tax and the patent changes brought about by the America Invents Act create hurdles for successful deals. The complexity of quality due diligence on acquisitions will create a competitive advantage for manufacturers and investors who stay up-to-date on how the latest developments will affect products and influence their valuations. This webinar explores current due diligence in medical device acquisitions, including:
  • Hidden issues in the medical device tax – how to thoroughly understand and conduct due diligence and modeling
  • Integrating changes from the America Invents Act into intellectual property due diligence
  • Outlining key regulatory and IP considerations in M&A transactions
  • Forecasting potential impacts and liabilities from transaction structure
  • Current regulatory issues from FDA and CMS that impact device acquisitions and investments
