SMC has identified a couple of potential platform companies around which it seeks to build seamless clusters, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The new globally deployed clusters will benefit from synergy and complementing portfolio, cross fertilization and reduced overhead, enhanced efficiency and service range.

 

Furthermore, the new clusters will have a distinct strategy and competitive advantage, capitalize on several market opportunities, respond to strong demand and unmet need, target large and growing patient population and provide a high level of customer service.
