Acquisition Details

Halyard will fund the acquisition from current cash. The transaction is expected to close early in Q3 2018. The transaction is expected to be immaterial to Halyard's fiscal year 2018 adjusted dilutive net earnings per share, and slightly accretive to earnings in 2019. Halyard is reaffirming its 2018 adjusted dilutive net earnings per share guidance of $1.65 to $1.85, which includes earnings from both continuing and discontinued operations.

Combination of Game Ready's Cold Therapy Products with Halyard's ON-Q* Pain Relief System Portfolio will Enhance Halyard's Postoperative Non-Opioid Product Offerings

Joe Woody, CEO of Halyard, stated that the acquisition of Game Ready represents another step forward in Halyard's transformation as a pure-play medical device company and is consistent with the Company's strategy to continually generate value for its patients, customers, and shareholders.

Joe added that the combination of Game Ready's market leading cold therapy products with Halyard's ON-Q* Pain Relief System portfolio will significantly enhance the Company's postoperative non-opioid product offerings and broaden its orthopedic footprint.

According to him, combined, both companies will be better positioned to play a critical role in providing innovative non-opioid therapies that reduce or eliminate the use of opioids for surgical patients and get them back to the things that matter.
