Johnson & Johnson said it has completed its acquisition of Shockwave Medical. Shockwave is now part of Johnson & Johnson and will operate as a business unit within Johnson & Johnson MedTech.

This transaction further extends Johnson & Johnson MedTech’s offerings in cardiovascular intervention. Shockwave offers the first and only commercially available intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) platform for coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD) and complements Johnson & Johnson’s leading positions in heart recovery (Abiomed) and electrophysiology (Biosense Webster) to make it a category leader in four of the largest and highest-growth medtech markets within cardiovascular intervention.

Shockwave is ultimately expected to become Johnson & Johnson MedTech’s thirteenth priority platform, as defined by annual sales of at least $1 billion. The transaction is expected to accelerate revenue growth for both Johnson & Johnson and Johnson & Johnson MedTech. Johnson & Johnson expects the transaction to be accretive to operating margin, but considering the impact of financing costs, is expected to dilute adjusted earnings per share by approximately $0.10 in 2024 and approximately $0.17 in 2025.

In connection with the completion of the transaction, Shockwave’s common stock ceased trading on NASDAQ.
