Hologic to Acquire Endomagnetics Ltd, a Breast Surgical Guidance Company

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$HOLX #acquisition–Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX), a global leader in women’s health, today announced that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Endomagnetics Ltd (Endomag®), a privately held developer of breast cancer surgery technologies, for approximately $310 million, subject to working capital and other customary closing adjustments.


“Endomag’s suite of solutions complements our existing breast surgery portfolio and will provide surgeons and radiologists with an expanded range of options to meet the individual needs of more patients undergoing critical breast cancer procedures,” said Erik Anderson, President of Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions at Hologic. “With a global footprint and a similar commitment to women’s health, we are excited about the potential of welcoming the Endomag team and our future opportunities together to increase access to these technologies and better serve patients across the breast health continuum of care.”

Endomag, which is based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, develops and sells breast surgery localization and lymphatic tracing technologies. Its products include the Magseed® marker for magnetic tissue localization before surgery, the Magtrace® lymphatic tracing injectable for breast cancer staging and the Sentimag® platform, which supports both localization and lymphatic tracing.

“We are delighted to attract the strength and focus of Hologic to power the next phase of our growth,” said Eric Mayes, CEO of Endomag. “Our team is encouraged by our cultural alignment and the potential to strengthen a broader portfolio of solutions to improve women’s health globally.”

Endomag generated approximately $35 million of revenue in calendar 2023. The acquisition is expected to be slightly dilutive to Hologic’s non-GAAP earnings per share in fiscal 2024, break even in 2025 and accretive thereafter.

Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release discusses non-GAAP EPS, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company’s definition of non-GAAP EPS may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. The Company defines its non-GAAP EPS presented in this press release to primarily exclude the amortization of intangible assets, acquisition- and integration-related charges, and income taxes related to such adjustment.

Non-GAAP EPS adjusts for specified items that may be non-cash, or can be highly variable or difficult to predict. In the context of forward-looking statements, the non-GAAP financial measures facilitate period-to-period comparisons by excluding the effects of events that have occurred in the past or may occur in the future and have accounting consequences that can mask underlying operational trends, such as acquisitions, restructurings, debt extinguishment and impairments.

This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, management encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments, and may also be affected by non-recurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, which are excluded in the calculation of the Company’s non-GAAP EPS as described in this press release.

When Hologic provides its expectations for non-GAAP EPS on a forward-looking basis, a reconciliation of the differences between these non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort because Hologic has not estimated the fair value of the assets and liabilities expected to be acquired in the transaction. Nor has the Company determined the fair value of acquired intangible assets and related annual amortization expense that would be required in order to provide the corresponding GAAP measure. The variability of the items that have not yet been determined may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on Hologic’s future GAAP results.
