Teleflex and Seastar Solutions One in the Same?

Ordered a "Teleflex" steering cable for my 197. When the box showed up it said Seastar Solutions on it. Assuming they bought out Teleflex? A quick search online didn't turn up much info relating to this. Can anybody confirm this? Just want to make sure I didn't get a knock-off version. Thanks much!

Yes, they did change the name. Here's the link to their site directing you to the new site.

Somewhat confusing as their hydraulic steering for larger outboards is called Sea Star.

mcmx2 - it was part #SSC15419. Basically the old Teleflex Xtreme 19' cable, but packaged under Seastar Solutions now. I ordered it from JMS Online Marine for $148 shipped.
