US-based supplier Avantor has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Masterflex bioprocessing business and related assets of Antylia Scientific, a privately held, portfolio company of investment firms GTCR and Golden Gate Capital.
The all-cash transaction is valued at $2.9 billion, subject to final adjustments at closing. Given anticipated tax benefits from the transaction structure, the net purchase price is approximately $2.7 billion.
Headquartered in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Masterflex is a leading global manufacturer of peristaltic pumps and aseptic single-use fluid transfer technologies with estimated 2022 revenues of approximately $300 million.
The acquisition strengthens Avantor's offering across all bioproduction platforms including monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), cell and gene therapy and mRNA, and supports both therapy and vaccine manufacturing including COVID-19.
Masterflex has business characteristics common to Avantor including its premium brand, stringent quality standards, specification-driven model and highly recurring revenue. Avantor will leverage its differentiated channel and deep Biopharma customer relationships to enhance growth opportunities in both research and production environments.
