Employee Retention of Boston Scientific - April 5th, 2011

The Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) (abbreviated BSC), is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices whose products are used in a range of interventional medical specialties, including interventional cardiology, peripheral interventions, neuromodulation, neurovascular intervention, electrophysiology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, endoscopy, oncology, urology and gynecology.
Boston Scientific is well known for the development of the Taxus Stent, a drug-eluting stent which is used to open clogged arteries. This product was at the center of a claim of patent infringement on the part of Boston Scientific, which was found liable for $431 million in damages.[1]
Boston Scientific's main competitors are Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, and St. Jude Medical. The company recently acquired longtime competitor Guidant for approximately $27 billion. The former Guidant was split between BSC and Abbott Laboratories. [2] [3]
Navilyst Medical was formed in February 2008 from Boston Scientific's Fluid Management and Vascular Access business units. [4]
Beginning in 2003, Johnson & Johnson and Boston Scientific have been involved in a series of litigation involving patents covering heart stent medical devices. Both parties claimed that the other had infringed upon their patents. The litigation was settled once Boston Scientific agreed to pay $716 million to J&J in September 2009 and an additional $1.73 billion in February 2010.

At a press conference at its Maple Grove, Minnesota facility, the Company said it plans to construct a new 120,000 square-foot building at the Maple Grove campus, providing space for up to approximately 600 new employees. The Company expects to hire the additional 600 employees between now and 2008. The new building will house primarily research and development laboratories and offices.
