Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On September 20, 2018, LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) for the purchase of the assets of the clot management business from Applied Medical Resources Corporation (“Applied”). The Company consummated the acquisition and acquired the assets on September 20, 2018 (the “Closing Date”) for $14,200,000, of which $11,000,000 was paid on the Closing Date and the remainder will be paid in two post-closing installments as follows: $2,000,000 payable twelve months following the Closing Date and $1,200,000 payable twenty four months following the Closing Date. Assets acquired included tangible assets, intellectual property, registrations and approvals, inventory, data, records, goodwill and certain other assets.

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants by each party. Additionally, for a period of five years following the Closing Date, Applied has agreed not to engage in certain competitive activities with respect to the business sold and not to solicit employees of the Company. Both parties are obligated, subject to certain limitations, to indemnify the other under the Asset Purchase Agreement for certain customary and other specified matters, including breaches of representations and warranties, breaches of covenants and for certain liabilities and third-party claims.

The Company also entered into a transition services agreement with an affiliate of Applied for the supply of the acquired products for a one year period.

The foregoing description of the Asset Purchase Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such document, which will be filed with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2018.

No material relationship exists between the Company or its affiliates, on the one hand, and Applied or its affiliates, on the other hand, other than in respect of the Asset Purchase Agreement and the other agreements and documents contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement.

LeMaitre Vascular Acquires Clot Management Business from Applied Medical

BURLINGTON, Mass., September 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (Nasdaq:LMAT), announced today that it has acquired the vascular clot management business of Applied Medical Resources Corporation for $14.2 million, of which $11.0 million was paid at closing and $3.2 million will be paid in two post-closing installments. As part of the transaction, the parties also signed a transition services agreement under which Applied Medical will continue to manufacture the product line for LeMaitre Vascular for one year.

Applied Medical’s clot management product line, including Syntel® embolectomy and thrombectomy catheters, Python® over-the-wire embolectomy catheters, Latis® graft cleaning catheters and irrigation catheters, is now available through LeMaitre Vascular. Sales of the business during the latest 12-month period were $3.4mm.

Dave Roberts, LeMaitre Vascular’s President, commented, “We are pleased to expand our clot management product offering through this acquisition, which adds a latex-free over-the-wire embolectomy catheter to our sales bag.”

Business Outlook

In Q4 2018, LeMaitre Vascular expects the acquired business to add $0.5 million to $0.6 million in sales, and have no impact on operating income due to short-term business transition related costs.
