Masimo Corporation (MASI - Free Report) recently announced the acquisition of TNI medical AG, which is expected to close in the second quarter of 2020. The terms of the deal have been kept under wraps. Further, Masimo expects the transaction to be neutral to its 2020 bottom line. This bolsters Masimo’s foothold in the respiratory care devices market.
 
For investors’ notice, TNI is a German ventilation company, which produces and markets diagnostic and therapeutic equipment in the field of respiratory assistance therapy.
 
Last August, Masimo had announced investments in TNI, which included an option to acquire it.
 
How Does Masimo Stand to Gain?

Moreover, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has ramped up demand for TNI’s softFlow technology. Hence, this technology will provide Masimo with additional tools to address the growing number of people affected by pulmonary diseases.
