Visage Imaging Closes Sale of Amira Division to VSG
Concentration of resources on Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology markets
SAN DIEGO, CA, August 1, 2012 - Visage Imaging Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. (ASX: PME), announced today they have signed a definitive agreement completing the sale of the Amira Division to Visualization Sciences Group (VSG).
The €12.1 million transaction was originally announced as a signed, binding letter of intent on July 2, 2012, which closed July 31, 2012. Post sale, Visage Imaging now has a singular focus on the needs of the global Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology markets. Visage Imaging’s flagship Visage 7 enterprise imaging platform delivers amazingly fast, thin-client, server-side processing technology delivers enterprise diagnostic, clinical and mobile viewing solutions for healthcare institutions seeking to dramatically accelerate and enhance the delivery of radiology services.
“This transaction has significant strategic value for Visage Imaging and Pro Medicus,“ said Dr. Sam Hupert, Chief Executive Officer, Visage Imaging and Pro Medicus. “Our focus no longer spans both clinical research and diagnostic imaging, which in practice have different stakeholders, divergent needs and limited synergies. Now, our development and customer teams are aligned exclusively to Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology, where speed, functionality and scale are paramount. This is exciting as resources from the sale will enable us to further accelerate and expand our efforts worldwide, particularly in our core markets of North America, Europe and Australia.”
