Bruker acquires Oxford Instruments' Superconducting Wire business

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
BILLERICA, Mass. and TUBNEY WOODS, England, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oxford Instruments plc (LON: OXIG) and Bruker Energy and Supercon Technologies, Inc. (BEST), a subsidiary of Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR), today announced that they have closed the acquisition of Oxford Instruments Superconducting Wire LLC (OST), based in Carteret, New Jersey, by BEST for a total consideration of 17.5 million US dollars in cash.

In the transaction, BEST has acquired all shares of OST from Oxford Instruments. The OST business will be part of BEST's advanced superconducting materials business, and one of two major development and production sites for low-temperature superconductors (LTS). BEST plans to optimize the OST portfolio, and integrate the OST operations into optimized BEST processes in order to continue the OST operations in New Jersey at enhanced productivity, quality and profitability levels. The acquisition of OST will expand BEST's technology portfolio with OST's unique Rod Restack Process (RRP) conductor portfolio, which is already being used by leading international fusion and high-energy physics projects that require highest magnetic fields.

Superconducting wires are used primarily in healthcare and scientific instrumentation, e.g. for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) magnets, as well as for high-energy physics and fusion, accelerator, confinement and detector magnets in 'big science' projects.

BEST has experienced significant growth in the LTS market for several years, following major capacity, automation and quality control investments. The acquisition of OST will enhance BEST's capabilities along the entire production chain with the goal to provide even higher performance, quality and delivery flexibility to its LTS customers. With the acquisition of OST, BEST has emerged as a world leading LTS provider with the broadest technology and product portfolio, the highest productivity, and industry-leading conductor performance and quality. BEST also has an emerging, high-temperature superconductivity (HTS) business, optimized for ultra-high field magnet applications, and based on 2nd generation HTS tape technology.

Oxford Instruments has recognized the ongoing challenges within the superconducting wire markets due primarily to pricing pressures exerted by the MRI system manufacturers and the need for larger scale operations in order to address this. After a comprehensive review of OST, Oxford Instruments has determined it no longer fits with the Group's long-term strategic vision. The decision to sell this business to BEST will allow OST to continue to provide customers with the performance and quality expected of them.
