EMC Instytut Medyczny has ended negotiations with EQT and is still looking for a strategic investor

The Management Board of EMC Instytut Medyczny SA has ended talks with EQT VI Limited on the fund’s potential investments in the Company.

“Since no satisfactory agreement on the terms of the transaction had been reached, we discontinued talks with the EQT fund " – said Piotr Gerber, the President of EMC Instytut Medyczny.

“At the moment, our search for a strategic business partner, who would share our vision for further development, continues. The expiry of the exclusivity period for negotiations with the EQT fund means that talks with a wider group of investors concerned are to be held. There are broad opportunities associated with the development of our business through further acquisitions of hospitals in terms of current regulations and local governments' needs. Given the scale of its operations, unique expertise in the conversion of public hospitals and the effective management of the network of hospitals and outpatient clinics, EMC Instytut Medyczny has gained a leading position in this market"- he added.

The Strategy of EMC Instytut Medyczny assumes the continued expansion of the network of hospitals and outpatient clinics. Currently, the Company is holding a number of talks on further acquisitions of hospitals. Acquiring a new investor will enable it faster development.
