ZOLL Medical Agrees to Acquire Itamar Medical for $538 Million

London – September 21, 2021 – Cooley advised ZOLL Medical, a company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, on its definitive agreement to acquire publicly traded medical technology company Itamar Medical. Lawyers Michal Berkner, Lester Fagen, Michael McGrail, Jarrett Burks and Vlad Herta led the Cooley team advising ZOLL Medical.

The transaction, which is expected to close by the end of 2021, will allow ZOLL to better serve undiagnosed and untreated cardiac patients. Under the terms of the agreement, ZOLL will acquire all outstanding ordinary shares of Itamar for a total value of approximately $538 million.

We look forward to helping strengthen the collaboration between the worlds of cardiology and sleep medicine.”
