It is a great business in its own right that also provides us with many new opportunities in our neonate and maternal space as their ability and approach is completely aligned to the AB Neo philosophy.

I see the acquisition as a significant step on our journey to further growing a first-class business focused on helping farmers deliver lifetime performance through neonates."
