Arcam AB, a Mölndal, Sweden-based AM equipment manufacturer founded in 1997, announced today the acquisition of DiSanto Technology (DiSanto), a manufacturer of finished orthopedic implants. Through DiSanto Arcam will offer customers, including industry-leading orthopedic and spinal implant companies, 3D printed implants and other components.

The total purchase price amounts to USD 15.8M paid in cash and through the execution of Arcam stock options issued to the sellers in February 2013.

DiSanto was founded by Ottavio DiSanto in 1967 and has specialized in contract manufacturing of orthopedic implants. In the last 12 months DiSanto generated approximately USD 12M in revenue and an EBIT of USD 0.6M. DiSanto is a strategic partner to Arcam since February 2013.

The combination of Arcam's EBM technology and DiSanto´s know-how in orthopedic implant manufacturing will accelerate the market adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the implant industry. DiSanto's expertise in implant engineering and production of finished components is thus expected to leverage Arcam's EBM technology for Additive Manufacturing of orthopedic implants.

DiSanto will become a subsidiary of Arcam and continue operating with the existing management team. The acquisition is expected to have a positive effect on Arcam's earnings per share in 2014.

"Through this acquisition Arcam's offering will cover the entire supply chain for our customers: Metal powders through AP&C, acquired earlier this year, EBM systems and services through Arcam AB and finished products through DiSanto. The acquisition is thus in line with our growth strategy, it complements our technology and product portfolio, and it is immediately accretive," says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.

"With this deal we will be part of the leading company in 3D-printing in metals. This will enable us to help customers in rapidly developing product applications and to commercially produce products for them with Arcam's cost-efficient, regulatory-cleared Additive Manufacturing technology. Being part of a larger group will also help in accelerating growth to better serve the growing implant market", says Ronald F. Dunn, President of DiSanto Technology.
