Agfa-Gevaert has executed the definitive agreements for acquisition of long-time technology partner Mitra. The deal, which is expected to close in early January, is subject only to completion of the premerger clearance process. The two companies announced the signing of a letter of intent regarding the sale in late September. Mitra, a provider of imaging and information management systems for the healthcare enterprise, has played an integral role in the development and success of Agfa's IMPAX PACS solutions for the past 10 years. Mitra will be managed as a separate business unit‹the company structure, management team, and all employees will be retained.
