St. Jude Medical Acquires Endosense - Quick Facts

St. Jude Medical Inc. (STJ) announced the acquisition of Endosense SA, a Switzerland-based medical technology company focused on improving the efficacy, safety and accessibility of catheter ablation for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. St. Jude Medical has made an initial payment of approximately $170 million, and acquired 100 percent of the outstanding equity of Endosense.
