EOS imaging (Paris:EOSI) (Euronext, FR0011191766 – EOSI – Eligible PEA – PME) (“EOS”), a leader in 2D/3D orthopedic medical imaging and software solutions for 3D anatomical modeling and surgical planning, was notified by Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (“ATEC”) on April 24, 2020 of the termination of the previously announced Tender Offer Agreement whereby ATEC was to launch a tender offer on EOS. According to ATEC, such termination results from their assessment of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on EOS.1
EOS disagrees with ATEC’s analysis and considers that while COVID-19 pandemic has a short term impact on EOS, in line with our industry, this crisis does not impact the long term perspective of the company. EOS will publish its annual results separately on April 27, 2020.
The Board of Directors of EOS is currently assessing all available options.
