Stereotaxis Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire Access Point Technologies

ST. LOUIS, May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today announced that it has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement under which Stereotaxis will acquire Access Point Technologies EP (APT), a privately-held Minnesota-based developer of innovative electrophysiology catheters.

“Acquiring APT provides Stereotaxis with high-quality catheter development and manufacturing capabilities, and will amplify and accelerate Stereotaxis’ efforts to advance the treatment of complex arrhythmias and the adoption of robotics broadly within endovascular surgery,” said David Fischel, Stereotaxis Chairman and CEO. “The acquisition offers valuable commercial synergies, strengthens us strategically, and was pursued in a financially-prudent and shareholder-friendly fashion.”

APT designs, manufactures, and commercializes a portfolio of differentiated high-quality diagnostic catheters used during cardiac ablation procedures. The catheters offer clinical value to patients and physicians, are particularly beneficial in challenging and complex arrhythmias, and are commercially available across key global geographies. The transaction consideration includes an upfront payment and additional contingent payments based upon the achievement of key regulatory and commercial milestones. All consideration is payable in Stereotaxis common stock. Stereotaxis currently estimates that APT will contribute approximately $5 million in annual revenue during the first year post-acquisition. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the third quarter.

“We are very excited to join Stereotaxis,” said Steve Berhow, President of Access Point Technologies. “This acquisition provides the APT team with a great partner and expanded home in the growing field of Electrophysiology. It allows us to continue contributing our unique expertise in high-quality EP catheters while also playing a central role in an exciting new mission of pioneering endovascular robotics.”

“We are delighted to welcome the APT team to Stereotaxis,” added David Fischel. “This acquisition is a reflection of Stereotaxis’ commitment to significant innovations that improve the treatment of patients with arrhythmias and broadly enable robotics to positively transform endovascular surgery.”
