Zimmer and Biomet Merger Made Official

Zimmer has announced that their acquisition of Biomet is now official. Zimmer released the following statement as a result of the merger:

We are excited to move forward as one company, and to help all Zimmer Biomet stakeholders – patients, healthcare professionals, employees, and the communities in which we operate – redefine what is possible and progress to the next level.  We define this commitment with the phrase, “Your Progress. Our Promise.”  This phrase captures our purpose and provides a meaningful reminder that our products help millions of people live better lives.  It's our commitment to work with you to break through boundaries in pursuit of exceptional results. While Zimmer Biomet will still need to contend with the challenges of a dynamic policy and regulatory environment, we look forward to providing a broader portfolio of technology offerings, services and personalized solutions that will result in high quality care for patients and appeal to hospitals, buying groups, and integrated health systems looking to deliver greater value.  We appreciate the service and support you provide to our community and our teams, and we look forward to continuing to work together to strengthen our role as a good corporate citizen.”
