(Reuters) – German group Siemens Healthineers AG (SHLG.DE) is in advanced talks to purchase Varian Medical Systems Inc (VAR.N), a maker of devices and software for treating cancer, in a deal that will value the medical device maker at about $15 billion, Bloomberg News reported late on Saturday.
The deal could be announced in the coming days, the report added, citing sources.
The talks could still fall apart, according to Bloomberg.
Both companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Varian, based in Palo Alto, California, is focused on developing and delivering innovative cancer treatments and has 10,000 employees. In 2019, it reported total revenue of $3.2 billion.
Siemens Healthineers, a spinoff from Siemens AG (SIEGn.DE) in 2018, makes X-ray, ultrasound and MRI equipment.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
