The Dutch pharmaceutical distributor Mediq has agreed to a takeover bid from the U.S. financial investor Advent International. As a result, Mediq will receive EUR 775 million for future expansion plans.
The two Mediq main shareholders – financial investors Templeton and Silchester – which together hold 20 percent of Mediq have already approved the acquisition. The Executive and Supervisory Board recommended acceptance of the bid. The U.S. financial investor wants to preserve the identity of Mediq, in addition to its headquarters in Utrecht which also includes employees and its brands.
In Germany, therefore, the second largest home care provider is in the hands of financial investors. After GHD, Mediq sits second, after acquiring the former Kohl-Gruppe home care company Assist in 2011.
