The Dutch Mediq-Gruppe, a global provider of medical devices and pharmaceuticals, acquires all assets in the U.S. company A-Med Health Care. The price adds up to EUR 29.4 million.
A-Med provides urology products, especially for patients in California. Mediq entered into the U.S. in 2008 by purchasing its now daughter company Byram HealthCare. The current acquisition will strengthen Byram’s position in the large but fragmented U.S. market and allow Byram to become a leader in California’s home care market.
Recently Mediq had agreed to a takeover bid from the U.S. financial investor Advent International. Then Mediq received for further expansion plans 775 million euros.
