SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 22, 2017 – Varex Imaging Corporation (Nasdaq: VREX) today announced it has entered into a renewed three-year pricing agreement with Toshiba Medical Systems under which Varex Imaging will continue to supply its computed tomography (CT) tubes for integration into Toshiba Medical’s CT imaging systems for the global market. This renewed agreement will be effective April 1, 2017.
Potential sales of CT tubes associated with this renewed agreement are estimated to be in the range of $345 million to $385 million. Orders under this renewed agreement will be booked when placed over the three-year term. CT tube pricing and expected volume ranges under this renewed agreement are consistent with CT tube purchases made in the past two years under the prior pricing agreement. Innovation and product performance also factor into the supply agreement with Toshiba Medical, with some tube pricing incorporating price adjustments based on extending CT tube performance.
In addition to this renewed pricing agreement, Varex has in place separate one-year pricing agreements to supply to Toshiba Medical other imaging components, including digital detectors and high voltage connectors. Annual sales of these additional components have ranged from $20 million to $30 million per year.
“The continuation of our four-decades long relationship with Toshiba Medical Systems is a testament to its strength and Toshiba Medical’s confidence in our ongoing ability to develop new X-ray imaging component technology that improves performance, contributes to faster time to market and reduces cost as Toshiba Medical introduces a number of next-generation imaging systems over the coming years,” said Sunny Sanyal, Chief Executive Officer of Varex Imaging Corporation. “We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with Toshiba Medical now that they are part of Canon and to the prospect of providing Canon with access to our portfolio of X-ray imaging products,” Sanyal added.
