The closing finalizes the sale of 50.1% interest in BD's Respiratory Solutions business to funds advised by Apax Partners. Vyaire Medical includes all business lines within BD's Respiratory Solutions business, including Ventilation, Respiratory Diagnostics, Vital Signs and AirLife, and will have estimated annual revenue of over  $800 million. BD will retain a 49.9% minority interest in the new company. BD's Respiratory Solutions facilities will transfer to the new company, including locations in Yorba Linda, Calif.; Palm Springs, Calif.; Plymouth, Minn.; Mexicali, Mexico; Cotia, Brazil; Hoechberg, Germany and Shenzhen, China. The new company will employ more than 5,000 associates around the world. BD plans to use net proceeds for share repurchases, subject to market conditions.
