Project: Blink Medical
Sector: Healthcare
Deal Value: Undisclosed
Buyer: Katena Products Inc – USA based

Katena Products, a leading global provider of precision ophthalmic instruments, biologics and devices to hospitals, surgical centres and ophthalmic and optometric offices purchased Blink Medical, provider of primarily single use ophthalmic instruments within Europe and the Middle East

Katena Products is private equity backed by Audax Group

The shareholders received an unsolicited offer from Katena Products Inc. The business was in its later stages of transferring its production facilities from outsourcing to inhouse cleanroom facilities which proved challenging to ensure that the synergies from the new facilities were truly reflected in the deal value

We had an unsolicited approach and therefore I thought we were nearly at the finishing line however that was only the beginning.  I was completely out of my comfort zone and yet I had total confidence that I was in good hands. I had great admiration for the focus and determination not only to drive the deal to completion but significantly improve the deal in the process
