In recent times, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc., (AAPL) had a meeting with Wang Wentao, China’s Minister of Commerce, to stress the importance of the relationship between the prominent US consumer tech company and its significant partner, especially considering the heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing. Cook was among many other US and European industry leaders who met with Wang recently at the China Development Forum in Beijing, which is the government’s way of signaling a reopening following years of Covid-19 restrictions.
Since his appointment this year, Wang has met with several other influential companies’ leaders, including Nestle SA, BMW AG, Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Pfizer Inc., and Qualcomm Inc. Apple’s products have gained increasing popularity in China in the last decade, thanks to Cook’s retail expansion in the country. Currently, Greater China contributes around 20% of Apple’s sales.

On Monday, March 20, INVO Bioscience (NASDAQ: INVO) announced that it has signed binding agreements to acquire a materially transformative acquisition of the Wisconsin Fertility Institute. The Madison-based fertility center primarily offers conventional IVF procedures and generated approximately $5.5 million in revenue and net income of approximately $1.9 million for the trailing 12-month period ended September 30, 2022.
Wisconsin Fertility Institute is led by internationally renowned and well-respected fertility expert, Dr. Elizabeth Pritts, who will continue to serve as the clinic’s lead physician for a minimum period of three years from the closing of the acquisition. Dual-certified in General Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Dr. Pritts completed a surgical fellowship in Advanced Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy. She is also a national leader in the use of robotic surgery for gynecologic disorders. Dr. Pritts served as an assistant professor in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, as a clinical fellow at the University of California at San Francisco, and as an instructor at Yale University School of Medicine. She has authored more than 70 articles for scientific publications and has lectured throughout the world on reproduction and fertility.

“I’m excited to be teaming up with INVO as a unique and attractive partner to help advance us to the next phase of our practice. INVO’s commercial strategy and patient focus, along with its public-company platform and the INVOcell technology itself, offers an exciting pathway to build value and increase access to an efficient, effective, affordable, and connected experience in reproductive treatment. Our team looks forward to being an integral part of INVO’s long-term growth and success.” Dr. Elizabeth Pritts, Wisconsin Fertility Institute’s co-founder.
