READING, United Kingdom, July 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec Group Plc ("ConvaTec"), a leading global medical products and technologies company, has agreed to acquire Woodbury Holdings ("Woodbury" or "The Company"), a US-based independent national distributor of incontinence and catheter-related supplies, from MTS Health Investors LLC for an enterprise value of $120.5 million.
