Hologic, Inc. is a medical technology company primarily focused on women’s health and beauty; it sells medical devices for surgery and medical imaging.

In late November 2013, activist investor Carl Icahn disclosed a 12.5% stake in the company. Subsequently, the company adopted a poison pill to prevent a hostile takeover. In negotiations with the Company's board of directors, two additional directors backed by Mr. Icahn were added to the board, each managing directors of Icahn holding companies.[2]
