Merge Healthcare Reacquires Cedara Software in Shanghai

January 7, 2009 - Merge Healthcare has reacquired its operations in China after terminating the sale of Cedara Software Shanghai Co., Ltd (ShanghaiCo) to Inqgen Technology Ltd.

"Earlier in 2008, Merge pursued the divestment of all of its international operations, including China. As we have discussed on our two prior earnings calls, we believe in the growth of our core business on an international scale and therefore terminated the planned divesture of our European operations in June. Now with the reacquisition of our China Operations, we feel that we are well positioned to execute on our global strategy," explained Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge. "If it is not today, China will soon be the largest market in the world for our products. We feel it is critical to have sales, marketing, customer support and an engineering presence in China to be successful. We are delighted to regain our Chinese operations and customer base as a key element of our international expansion strategy."

Inqgen has participated fully in the transfer to date, working with employees of ShanghaiCo on the communication of transition plans. Zhong Wang, director, Asia Business Operations of Merge OEM, will immediately be assuming management of the Shanghai operations.
