Pulse eyes off Vision
HEALTHCARE provider Pulse Health has lobbed a $ 158 million takeover offer for Vision Eye Institute.

The offer implies a value of 88c per share, which is 31 per cent above Vision’s closing price on Friday. Both companies have been placed in a trading halt. Pulse said the takeover would create one of Australia’s leading providers of specialist healthcare services. Pulse shares last traded at 56c while Vision shares last traded at 65.5c.
