Women's imaging vendor Hologic has acquired a 46% stake in SuperSonic Imagine, the first step in Hologic's plan to acquire the French ultrasound technology developer.

Hologic announced in June that it had entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire SuperSonic. The value of the deal at the time was estimated at $85 million (76.4 million euros).

As a first step in the deal, Hologic last week reported that it had acquired a 46% interest from SuperSonic's main shareholders at a price of $1.67 (1.50) a share. Hologic plans to acquire the rest of SuperSonic's shares and pay off the company's debt of $43 million (38.6 million) to creditors by August.
