Wright Medical Group Inc. (WMGI:US), a U.S. maker of bone implants, will merge with Tornier NV, creating a new company valued at $3.3 billion in the latest proposed tax inversion since tighter rules were announced last month.
The legal address for the new company, to be called Wright Medical Group NV, will be in the Netherlands, where Tornier has been based for about eight years, the companies said yesterday in a statement. Wright has been based in Memphis, Tennessee, where the new combined company’s U.S. headquarters will remain, according to the statement.
“This combination will create the premier extremities-biologics company with a broad global reach,” Robert Palmisano, Wright’s president and chief executive officer, said in the statement. “Together, we will have one of the most comprehensive upper and lower extremity product portfolios in the market.”
