BATESVILLE, Ind., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HRC), a global leader in patient support systems, today announced that it has completed its $85 million purchase of Germany-based Volker group. The completed transaction is expected to strengthen Hill-Rom's channels and product offerings in Europe and around the world.

"The combined strength of Hill-Rom and Volker in innovation, product portfolio and operational excellence further develops our company's leadership position in key markets," said John J. Greisch, President and CEO of Hill-Rom. "This is an important milestone and will enable us to expand the presence of our exceptional products to an even greater number of patients and caregivers globally."

The Volker portfolio of long-term and acute care bed frames, surfaces and furniture is expected to complement and further diversify Hill-Rom's strong portfolio of patient support systems and other medical technologies.

Volker is a private company with annual revenues of approximately $100 million in 2010. As previously disclosed, Hill-Rom anticipates the transaction will not have any impact on adjusted earnings per share in fiscal year 2012, but is expected to be accretive thereafter.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: the Company's dependence on its relationships with several large group purchasing organizations, whether the Company's new products are successful in the marketplace, impacts of healthcare reform, compliance with federal healthcare programs, collections of accounts receivable, compliance with FDA regulations, potential exposure to product liability or other claims, failure of the Company's announced or future strategic initiatives and restructuring and realignment activities to achieve expected growth, efficiencies or cost reductions, failure of the Company to execute its acquisition and business alliance strategy through the consummation and successful integration of acquisitions or entry into joint ventures or other business alliances, increased costs or unavailability of raw materials, adverse changes in global economic conditions or disruptions of credit markets, labor disruptions, the ability to retain executive officers and other key personnel, and certain tax-related matters.
