9:18 am on 29 August 2011

Listed healthcare equipment supplier Ebos says it is evaluating a few acquisition options and hopes to complete one this year.

Ebos made $31.6 million in the year to the end of June, up almost 19% on the previous year.

Managing director Mark Waller says the company now has no debt and is well positioned for future growth.

Mr Waller says the company has two or three very good healthcare-related acquisitions under evaluation at the moment, and hopes complete one by the end of the year.

He is not revealing details of the possible purchase and says the firm is looking at options in New Zealand and Australia, and elsewhere as well.
