NightBalance acquired by Royal Philips

May 8, 2018

Utrecht, The Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced that it has acquired NightBalance, a portfolio company from specialist investor Gilde Healthcare. Netherlands-based NightBalance is a digital health scale-up company commercializing an innovative, easy to use device to treat positional obstructive sleep apnea and positional snoring. With the acquisition of NightBalance, Philips expands its Sleep & Respiratory Care portfolio. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

NightBalance’s Sleep Position Trainer (SPT) was designed as a patient friendly treatment alternative for people who suffer from positional obstructive sleep apnea. The SPT gently prompts them not to sleep on their back, avoiding the apneas from occurring during sleep. The SPT is CE-marked and is currently marketed in select countries in Europe. The acquisition will help Philips to further expand its leadership position in the growing home care market, and its ability to deliver integrated solutions that drive efficiencies and improved outcomes. Philips already offers a broad range of care solutions for people living with obstructive sleep apnea.
