Varex Imaging Corporation is a leading innovator, designer and manufacturer of X-ray imaging components, which include tubes, digital flat panel detectors and other image processing solutions, which are key components of X-ray imaging systems.
The acquired business develops, manufactures and sells digital detectors that are key components in medical and industrial X-ray imaging systems made by global OEM manufacturers. It is headquartered in Santa Clara, California and has operations in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, which combined have approximately 280 employees.
This acquisition is expected to add approximately $140 million in annual sales and Varex believes it will be transformative to the company's digital detector operations, enabling the company to increase innovation, leverage its manufacturing scale and expand its cost leadership position.

Varex used $207 million to repay existing debt and $286 million for the acquisition and related credit facility fees.
