On September 29, 2020, Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries (the “Sellers” or “Integra”) entered into a Put Option Agreement (the “Put Option Agreement”) with Smith & Nephew USD Limited, a subsidiary of Smith+Nephew (LSE:SN, NYSE:SNN) (“Buyer”) whereby, upon the Sellers’ completion of an employee consultation process in France, the Sellers will be entitled to cause Buyer to enter into a purchase and sale agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”, and together with the Put Option Agreement, the “Definitive Agreements”) pursuant to which the Sellers will sell their Extremity Orthopedics business to Buyer for $240 million in cash (the “Transaction”). The Transaction is expected to close at or around the end of 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions, including regulatory approvals and consultation with employee representative bodies. The Transaction includes the sale of the Company’s upper and lower extremity orthopedics product portfolio, including ankle and shoulder arthroplasty and hand and wrist product lines.

In connection with the Transaction, Integra will pay $41.5 million to the Consortium of Focused Orthopedists, LLC (“CFO”) pursuant to the terms of certain agreements between Integra and CFO relating to the development of shoulder arthroplasty products. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Transaction in a manner consistent with its current capital allocation strategy, which may include debt reduction and/or reinvestment in both organic and inorganic opportunities.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of each of the parties, as well as customary covenants and agreements, including with respect to the operation of the Extremity Orthopedics business between signing and closing.
