The acquisition was announced in December, when Fuji entered into a definitive merger agreement with SonoSite in response to an offer for all outstanding shares of the company's stock at $54 per share. The tender offer was completed in February, and following guaranteed procedures, Fuji acquired 89.94% of SonoSite's shares, Fuji said.

The merger was approved at a special meeting of SonoSite shareholders on March 29. SonoSite's stock also ceased trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market at the close of business March 29, Fuji reported.
