Medtronic to buy Covidien for $43 billion and move HQ to Ireland to save taxes

Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE: MDT), a global leader in medical technology, services and solutions, and Covidien plc (NYSE: COV), a global healthcare technology and medical supplies provider, today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Medtronic has agreed to acquire Covidien in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at $93.22 per Covidien share, or a total of approximately $42.9 billion, based on Medtronic’s closing stock price of $60.70 per share on June 13, 2014. 

 Once the transaction is completed, Medtronic will have significantly advanced its position as the world’s premier medical technology and services company.  The combined company will have a comprehensive product portfolio, a diversified growth profile and broad geographic reach, with 87,000 employees in more than 150 countries. The Boards of Directors of both companies have unanimously approved the transaction.

 

Therapy Innovation: With its expanded portfolio of innovative products and services, Medtronic will be a preeminent leader in delivering therapy and procedural innovations to address the major disease states impacting patients and healthcare costs around the world.   Covidien has an impressive portfolio of industry- leading products that enhance Medtronic’s existing portfolio, offer greater breadth across clinical areas, and create exciting entry points into new therapies.

 

Globalization: With a presence in more than 150 countries, the combined entity will be better able to serve global market needs. Medtronic and Covidien have combined revenues of $13 billion from outside the U.S., of which $3.7 billion comes from emerging markets. Covidien’s extensive capabilities in emerging market R&D and manufacturing, joined with Medtronic’s demonstrated clinical expertise across a much broader product offering, significantly increases the number of attractive solutions the new company will be able to offer to governments and major providers globally.

 

Economic Value: Medtronic has adopted an intense focus on aligning with its customers to create more value in healthcare systems around the world – in various delivery and payment systems – by combining products, services and insights into solutions aimed at expanding access and reducing healthcare costs.  With Covidien, Medtronic will be able to provide a broader array of complementary therapies and solutions that can be packaged to drive more value and efficiency in healthcare systems.  Both companies’ deep relationships with healthcare system stakeholders will provide enormous ability to identify and create further value-based solutions.

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Business Development | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

La culture d'entreprise est ce qui rend les actions de tous cohérentes sans surcharger tout le monde avec des procédures paralysantes.

C'est donc un outil sur-puissant, qu'il travaille à la perte de l'entreprise ou à son agileté, sa capacité d'innovation et d'adaptation, bref, sa performance.

Et c'est aussi un des éléments les plus complexes à transformer. Complexe, mais pas impossible.

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, June 11, 2014 1:23 AM

Culture matters and it matters immensely!

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Business Development | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.
