UAT Group, Inc. Completes Bid to Acquire Orthopedic Implant Company

 

Tampa FL, March 16, 2021 – — Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc (OTC Pink: UATG) (UAT Group), announced today that it has initiated the acquisition of the Texas based company Ossifix Technologies, Inc.

The Ossifix Orthopedics™ line of products will compete in one of the fastest growing, emerging markets, specifically, the resorbable implant market, in three distinct surgical segments; orthopedic, dental, and general.  Ossifix products are designed to be used in hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and specialty clinics. Distribution is scheduled throughout North America, and globally in Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, as well as the Middle East and Africa. This global market is currently experiencing an estimated growth of 14% per year to reach $4.696 billion US this year.

Ossifix Technologies has projected its first-year domestic gross revenues to be $25.5M once it launches; with a three-year evaluation in excess of $88.6M. The cash-and-stock acquisition is valued at $5M USD with about half being delivered as a cash payment. The new addition to the public holding company is expected to assist UAT Group subsidiary UAT, in bolstering existing research and product lines within the Company’s BioTech division.

Chief Executive Officer, Alex Umbra commented: “We are pleased to integrate Ossifix into our growing suite of companies. I as well as the rest of the team, look forward to building the synergy across all of our subsidiaries by combining the resources and market footprints of the Umbra suite of companies. We believe that this “growth through acquisition approach”, will serve to exponentially expand our capabilities so that we can gain a competitive edge in relevant market spaces. I have no doubt that the addition of Ossifix to the Umbra family will be a significant contributor to our collective success”.

U.S. based company, Ossifix Orthopedics™ products are manufactured in Austin, TX from select, high-density, allograft cortical bone. Ossifixs’ unique manufacturing process and patent pending designs yield an engineered cortical bone implant that provides secure fixation and virtually eliminates any allergic or autoimmune reactions associated with metal or plastic/polymer implants. All Ossifix Orthopedics™ Pin, Screw and Plate Systems are single-use surgical kits containing all necessary instruments for implantation and are based on decades of clinical experience in the operating room.  Ossifix implants are shipped in comprehensive, sterile, single-use surgical kits designed in house. Each kit contains all instrumentation, bits, and fixtures required for the implant placement, with the components thoughtfully laid out in the exact order they are required. The provided instrumentation that accompanies every Ossifix surgical kit is constructed of an eco-friendly, bio-degradable polymer.

Ossifix is currently working in cooperation with Umbra Applied Technologies to develop biodegradable polymer based surgical instrumentation engineered with their antimicrobial technology brand – Hygieia.

Ossifix CEO, Mark Estrada shared, “I have a longstanding relationship with all the folks over at UAT and UAT Group, which made it a no brainer to join forces. My team and I are very excited about this move and we are eager to show everyone what the future holds.”
