Fukuda Denshi to Sell Kontron Medical SAS and Kontron Medical AG

21 August 2006

Tokyo, Japan. Fukuda Denshi, the Tokyo-based medical instrument developer and distributor, has announced that it intends to sell France-based Kontron Medical SAS and Switzerland-based Kontron Medical AG by the end of 2006.

Kontron Medical is one of France's leading manufacturers and distributors of ultrasound devices. Kontron's ultrasound products have the largest market share among France's physicians in private practice.

The company turned Kontron Medical SAS and Kontron Medical AG into wholly owned subsidiaries in May 2005. Fukuda Denshi has decided to sell the subsidiaries in order to refocus on its core business strategy.
