Siemens to acquire a clinical laboratory diagnostics company and to sell automobile supplier business
Siemens to acquire Bayer Diagnostics arm
Medical Solutions Group further expands position in key high-growth molecular diagnostics market
Siemens has signed an
agreement with Bayer to acquire the chemical and pharmaceutical
company's Diagnostics Division. The acquisition will enable
Siemens Medical Solutions (Med) to expand its position in the high-growth
molecular diagnostics market. At the end of April, Siemens
announced the planned acquisition of
Diagnostic Products Corporation (DPC) in the U.S., a leading company in
immunodiagnostics 免疫診断. The purchase price for Bayer
Diagnostics - which had sales of Euro1.4 billion and a
double-digit EBITDA margin in fiscal 2005 - is roughly Euro 4.2
“Demographic change is greatly increasing global demand for healthcare services and thereby generating excellent growth opportunities for Siemens,” explained Dr. Klaus Kleinfeld, Siemens President and CEO. ”The acquisition of Bayer Diagnostics is part of our targeted strategy to create the healthcare industry's first integrated diagnostics company by combining the entire imaging diagnostics, laboratory diagnostics and clinical IT value chain under one roof.” Kleinfeld also noted that this acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval, is - like other purchases in the last few quarters - further proof that Siemens is rigorously focusing its portfolio on promising growth fields.
The company strengthened its position in molecular in-vivo diagnostics last year through the acquisition of CTI, delivering increased capabilities in the development and manufacture of positron emission tomography (PET) systems that can be used, for example, in the diagnosis of cancer and Alzheimer's disease, in addition to advanced development of new molecular contrast agents and pharmaceutical tracers.

Bayer to sell diagnostics business to Siemens for EUR 4.2 billion
HealthCare strategy being systematically implemented
Bayer Diabetes Care Division and Schering contrast agents business not affected
Decision not driven by financing of Schering acquisition
The Bayer Group plans to sell the Diagnostics Division of Bayer HealthCare to Siemens AG, Munich, Germany, for EUR 4.2 billion. The divestment was approved today by the Bayer Supervisory Board. “This decision is fully in line with our strategy for systematically aligning our health care business. We are concentrating on pharmaceuticals for both humans and animals, and products that can be promoted directly to patients,” explained Bayer AG Management Board Chairman Werner Wenning
The systems business of the Diagnostics Division, with its emphasis on hardware, IT networking and comprehensive equipment service, is subject to different success factors than the other Bayer HealthCare divisions.
The consumer-influenced Diabetes 糖尿病 Care Division is not affected by the transaction, nor is the contrast agents Ｘ線造影剤 (diagnostic imaging) business of Schering AG, which will form an important part of the future Bayer Schering Pharma AG.
Sales of Bayer HealthCare Diagnostics rose in 2005 by 8.4 percent to EUR 1.4 billion. The division employs more than 5,000 people worldwide. It offers an extensive portfolio of in-vitro diagnostic products for evaluating and monitoring the therapy of numerous diseases, including cardiovascular disorders, kidney diseases, infections, cancer and diabetes. The business units are Laboratory Testing, including the ADVIA Centaur® and Centaur® CP, ADVIA® Clinical Chemistry, ADVIA LabCell® and WorkCell® Automation, ADVIA® Hematology and Clinitek® Atlas systems; Near Patient Testing, with its Rapidpoint®, Rapidlab®, RapidCommTM and Clinitek® brands; and Molecular Testing, with its Trugene® and Versant® lines of tests and systems.
Bayer HealthCare AG is one of the world's leading
innovative companies in the health care and medical products
industry. In 2005, this Bayer subgroup had sales of about EUR 9.4
billion. Bayer HealthCare employs approximately 33,800 people
The company combines the activities of the Animal Health, Consumer Care, Diabetes Care, Diagnostics and Pharmaceuticals divisions. The Pharmaceuticals and Biological Products divisions were combined effective January 1, 2006. The new Pharmaceuticals Division comprises the Hematology/Cardiology, Oncology, and Primary Care business units.
Our aim is to discover, develop, manufacture and market products that will improve human and animal health worldwide. These products enhance well-being and quality of life by diagnosing, preventing and treating disease.

About PET and PET/CT:
PET images the biology of diseases at the molecular level, often before anatomic changes are visible or, in some cases, before symptoms appear. Diseases are biological processes and it is these processes that PET examines. PET/CT is an imaging technology that combines the biological examination of patients by PET with the CT images of the body's structural detail. PET/CT technology improves the diagnostic accuracy and treatment management of patients by providing surgeons, radiation oncologists and other physicians with precise anatomical landmarks associated with the disease condition as determined by PET. PET's whole-body imaging capability helps physicians improve their ability to detect and determine the location, extent and stage of cancer, neurological disorders and cardiac disease. By improving diagnosis, PET scans aid physicians in selecting better courses of treatment, as well as assessing whether treatment is effective or should be changed. Recent published clinical trials have shown that in a wide array of cancers, the use of PET has caused the treatment to be changed for 15 to 50% of patients, depending on the specific clinical question. In addition, PET and PET/CT provide both the patient and their physician with a degree of certainty that is often unavailable through other imaging methods.
