Convatec has taken over the US company 180 Medical. The company, based in Oklahoma City, is a leading supplier of home care medical supplies, intermittent catheters and urological products. The purchase price is $321 million.
Convatec, owned since 2008 by the private equity firms Nordic Capital and Avista Capital Partners – which bought the ostomy and wound care providers from Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. – intends to complete the transaction by the end of the third quarter.
