March 15, 2016 — Pyrexar announced it has purchased back outside ownership from Person Medical (formerly BSD Medical), concluding a purchase agreement made by the two companies in 2015.

In the original agreement, Pyrexar purchased the hyperthermia device group from Person. In exchange, Person Medical acquired 19.9 percent of Pyrexar, along with royalties on future sales of the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System, Pyrexar’s flagship product. The royalties were valued at an estimated $4 million over the next three years.
