    No guidance until they do a lot more work.. They will file the agreement next couple of days but legally, after that they have up to 70 days to file the details.. They feel it will be done sooner then that.. DR Systems, annual revenue was around $40m in 2013.. Audited numbers for 2014 was being worked on.. Merge is being conservative and is discounting 10-15% from 2013 numbers but feels with operating margins around 25%, it will still be accretive.. Financiers have up to 6 months to pull out (they were given puts at $ 4.11 if they don't like the audited numbers out of DR Systems since the deal was done before they saw all of it since DR Systems is also a competitor of Merge so they were reluctant to pass with all the information before the deal was signed..

    You should hear the CC at Merge website.. 38 minutes long..

    As for Spectral, one of the early stock market successes in Canada, its potential stems as much from years of capital market neglect as from the promise of its technology. Its stock price rose spectacularly in the early 1980s, almost reaching $1 billion in market value, on the strength of early excitement about its “point of care” cardiac diagnostic panel invention. Nothing of much value resulted from this early technology. A management change over ten years ago set the company on a new long and painfully dilutive path (again, based on the old model) to what may finally become a huge win for its long suffering shareholders. Ironically, its current technology marries a well-established Japanese filtering device to—you guessed it—a point-of-care diagnostic, albeit in the vastly more challenging area of septic shock. Sepsis remains one of health care’s most profound problems. If its current phase 3 Euprates trial on which management has “bet the company” succeeds in 2014, the share price win will be in multiples.

    Not sure if I can post the link but the above quote is from biotechnologyfocus-dot-ca by Tony Pullen in Part 2 of the article that covers Canadian Biotech companies..
