... positive contribution from integrated acquisitions ...
The acquisition of leading North American luminaire manufacturer Genlyte not only gives us the leading position in the US market for professional lighting applications, but also makes us the only player with a truly global platform for its lighting applications and solutions.
The acquisition of Respironics — a leading US-based global provider of innovative respiratory and sleep therapy solutions for hospital and home use — is part of our strategy to create a global leadership position in the fast-growing home healthcare solutions market. In December, we further solidified this position with the acquisition of the aerosol therapy business of Medel SpA in Italy. The hospital activities of Respironics are now part of our integrated offering of Clinical Care Solutions, and we are well on our way with the creation of an integrated approach to sleep care involving our Lifestyle sector.
