Alma Lasers (www.almalasers.com), manufacturer and developer of medical aesthetic technologies, has signed an agreement to acquire the assets of Quantel Derma GmbH (formerly known as Wavelight), a French and Germany based developer of laser technologies for dermatologists.
Quantel Derma is part of the Quantel Group, a publicly traded company on the Paris stock exchange (Euronext). Quantel Derma sells its products across the world, with a particularly strong presence in Europe and Asia.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alma Lasers will acquire all of Quantel Derma's assets from the Quantel Group and will integrate Quantel Derma's products within its current portfolio. Alma will also provide support and service to all existing Quantel Derma customers.
“This is an important milestone in executing Alma Lasers long term strategic plan", said Ziv Karni, PhD, founder and CEO of Alma. “The acquisition of Quantel Derma brings to Alma Lasers a large, well respected and high quality portfolio of FDA & CE cleared lasers.”
Alain de Salaberry, chairman of the Quantel Group commented, “The sale of Quantel Derma to Alma Lasers will allow us to better focus our resources on industrial and ophthalmic lasers. We are honored that Alma Lasers has chosen our dermatological division, as it’s a clear sign of the high quality found in all of Quantel's laser products.”
