FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Wound Management Technologies, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: WNDM) a rapidly growing provider of specialty medical products, announced today it has closed on its acquisition of Resorbable Orthopedics LLC, a private company with patented technologies including a resorbable bone wax and a delivery system for orthopedic bone void fillers, among others.
Under the terms of the agreement, Resorbable Orthopedics has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Wound Management Technologies in a stock transaction.
Scott Haire, CEO of Wound Management Technologies, said, “This highly significant acquisition adds complementary orthopedic biomaterials products to our existing CellerateRx wound care products. Wound Management Technologies, through two subsidiaries, is participating in one of the fastest growing medical markets worldwide. The total global biomaterial market is currently $28 billion and is expected to exceed $58 billion in the next five years. The orthopedic biomaterials market is approximately $10 billion alone, driven by improved patient benefits, a shorter FDA approval cycle and an aging population ever more aware of biomaterial benefits.”
“Wound Management Technologies is executing our strategy for rapid growth. The building blocks are coming together and the acquisition of Resorbable Orthopedics is another accomplishment for Wound Management Technologies. We are executing on our strategy to broaden our platform technologies that target a growing patient population. Diabetes and orthopedic disorders are expanding internationally and we are responding by establishing global distribution channels,” said Haire.
