BURLINGTON, Mass., March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (Nasdaq: LMAT), a provider of vascular devices, implants and services, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to buy out its Thai distributor, Prompt Serve, for $688,000. In 2022 Prompt Serve purchased $950,000 of LeMaitre devices which it then sold to Thai hospitals for approximately $1.5mm. LeMaitre expects to establish a Bangkok office/warehouse and to begin selling directly to Thai hospitals in H2 2023. This will be LeMaitre’s 29th direct-to-hospital country and follows LeMaitre’s Korean distributor buyout in 2022. Korea and Thailand were previously LeMaitre’s two largest international distributors.
Jacob Petersen, VP of Asia-Pacific, said “We are thrilled to continue our APAC expansion. Thailand will be LeMaitre’s 8th direct country in APAC, and we now expect to be greater than 90% direct in APAC.”
Guidance on how this transaction may affect LeMaitre’s 2023 revenue, operating income and EPS expectations will be provided at the Company’s Q1 2023 earnings call.
