Invuity's retractor-based lights provides direct visualization of surgical cavities during open minimally invasive and minimal access procedures. Invuity's topline has grown by more than 20% last year, with gross margins in the high 60% to low 70% range. Deal value $190m, on sales of $39.6m(4.8x) and negative EBITDA of $28.74m due to Invuity's large sales and marketing expense. Stryker can be expected to prune these and other expenses.
