The Company will hold its third quarter 2020 investor conference call today, November 6, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. .m.m ET. The audio webcast is available on Zimmer Biomet`s investor relations website at investor.zimmerbiomet.com. It will be archived for replay after the conference call. The terms of the merger were announced in April 2FF014, which then prompted EU antitrust authorities to launch a thorough investigation, Reuters reported. To close the $14 billion deal (previously listed as $13.3 billion), musculoskeletal device manufacturers will have to divest certain U.S. rights and assets. In a proposed settlement with the FTC, the combined company would sell the U.S.-based rights and assets of Zimmer in the U.S. ZUK for non-columnar knee implants to London-based Smith & Nephew and Biomet`s U.S.-based rights and discovery assets Total Elbow Implant and Cobalt Bone Cement to Vista, CA, DJO Global Inc., based in Vista, California, according to an FTC statement. The merger should make investors happy – employees, not so much. Zimmer will close its Carlsbad, California-based dental practice after the merger and lay off an unsalted number of employees, documents revealed this spring.
The plant would close within 12 months as the company begins consolidating operations at Biomet`s dental headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The sale price rose to $14 billion due to the rise in Zimmer`s share price between the merger announcement and closing, Kendrick wrote in an email. „While most of the purchase price was paid in cash, part of the consideration for the merger was paid in Zimmer shares,“ she wrote. Zimmer Biomet estimates that neutral sales growth in foreign currency in the second quarter of 2015, excluding sales acquired from Biomet, was between 1.0% and 1.5% at constant exchange rates, or 1.5% to 2.0% at the settlement date on a constant currency basis. For the full year 2015, an increase of between 1.5% and 2.0% is now expected. Previously, the company had estimated that currency neutral sales for the full year would increase by 1.5% to 2.5% compared to 2014 pro forma sales.
Pro forma adjustments compared to the prior year reflect the inclusion of Biomet sales for the comparable period after the close of the previous year`s merger and the effects of previously announced divestitures. The Company continues to expect to close the transaction in the first quarter of 2015. Under the terms of the merger agreement announced on April 24, Zimmer will acquire Biomet in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $13.35 billion, including the acquisition of net debt.
