Lampropoulos, chairman and chief executive officer of Merit Medical. "Medigroup's current annual sales are approximately $2 million, mostly in the United States, and we plan to offer the product line immediately on a worldwide basis. While growing in the United States, peritoneal dialysis is the procedure of choice over chronic catheters in many international markets. Medigroup is profitable, with 75 percent gross margins, and we believe the transaction will be immediately accretive for us."
