Statasys rejects 3D Systems merger

Plastics 3D printing specialist Stratasys says that a recent merger proposal from 3D Systems does not constitute a “superior proposal”.

This follows the metal powder additive manufacturing (AM) company making the proposal after Stratasys entered into a merger agreement with Desktop Metal in May 2023.

“The Stratasys Board has not changed its unanimous approval, recommendation and declaration of advisability of the previously announced transaction with Desktop Metal,” a press release said.
