Wright Medical Group Acquires A.M. Surgical’s Foot, Ankle Product Lines

June 10, 2008 - Wright Medical Group Inc., an orthopedic medical device company, said it has acquired certain assets of A.M. Surgical Inc., a company focused on providing endoscopic soft tissue release products for foot and ankle surgeons.

Wright has been marketing A.M. Surgical’s foot and ankle products since October 2007 pursuant to a previously announced distribution agreement between the parties.

Assets acquired include all of A.M. Surgical’s endoscopic soft tissue release products for the foot and ankle market, which consist of the AM EPF (plantar fascia release), AM UDIN (interdigital nerve decompression) and AM EGR (gastrocnemius release) Systems. These three systems address the decompression and soft tissue release procedures most commonly performed by foot and ankle surgeons. Wright will continue to offer the AM foot and ankle tissue release systems through its U.S. sales force, as it has since October 2007, and expects to begin commercialization into certain international markets during 2009.
