MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Baylis Medical Co. Inc. says it has signed a deal to sell its cardiology business to Boston Scientific Corp. for US$1.75 billion.

The company is a developer of medical devices used in cardiology.

The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of next year, subject to customary closing conditions.

Baylis Medical's affiliate – Mississauga-based Baylis Medical Technologies – is not part of the deal and will remain a separate entity.

Baylis Medical Technologies will also continue to offer contract manufacturing services to other medical device companies.
