Howard & Howard Represents Healthmark Industries Co. Inc. in $320 Million Acquisition by Getinge

Royal Oak, MI – October 23, 2023 – National law firm Howard & Howard Attorneys, PLLC recently represented longtime client, Healthmark Industries Co. Inc., and its shareholders, in a major transaction. Healthmark’s shareholders sold 100 percent of its U.S. shares to an affiliate of Getinge AB for approximately $320 million. The transaction officially closed October 11, 2023.

Healthmark has been a longstanding leader in the development and marketing of innovative healthcare solutions since 1969. Its products aid healthcare facilities in delivering surgical instruments and other lifesaving medical devices to patients, focusing on the validation and clarification of sanitizing medical products.

Richard Miettinen and Nolan Yaldo led the team of Howard & Howard attorneys throughout the deal, supported by Mark Peyser, Bradley Knickerbocker, Brett Garwood, Kaila Patrick, John Pollock, Bob Johnston, Steve Hays, Joanna Myers, Aaron Beresh, Gary Peters, Rui Lu, Trevor Lloyd, and Simon Alnajjar. The transaction officially closed October 11, 2023.

"Working with Healthmark for over 25 years has been a privilege. We have built a great business partnership through trust and understanding," Mark Peyser, partner at Howard & Howard, said. "Negotiation, strategic planning, and strong collaboration is what drives a successful transaction. I am grateful for the opportunity to have played a role in this deal and look forward to the continued success of our clients."

Building trust along the way, over the past few decades, the Howard & Howard team has counseled and helped Healthmark Industries Co. Inc. grow from a small family business into an international industry leader.  The significant depth and resources of the Howard & Howard team in its offices in Royal Oak, Las Vegas, Chicago and Peoria all contributed and collaborated to successfully close this major transaction.

Getinge is a Swedish-based medical technology leader with a presence in over 40 countries worldwide. Getinge is widely known for their sterilization and infection control products and continues to grow throughout various fields in the medical division. The transition to acquire Healthmark has proven to be seamless, given the minimal overlap of the product portfolios of the two companies.
