Hogan Lovells advised Soliton on the deal.
Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, will acquire Soliton and RESONIC, its Rapid Acoustic Pulse device, for approximately US$550 million.
RESONIC, which recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, is a non-invasive treatment for the short-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite and for use in conjunction with laser for tattoo removal.
Under the terms of the transaction, Allergan Aesthetics will pay $22.60 per share in cash for each outstanding share of Soliton. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including clearance by the U.S. antitrust authorities under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act and approval of Soliton’s shareholders.
