MidEuropa Completes Sale of Alpha Medical to Unilabs
MidEuropa, the leading private equity firm focused on Central and South Eastern Europe, announced today that it has completed the sale of Alpha Medical (“Alpha” or the “Company”), the leading provider of laboratory testing services in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, to Unilabs. The transaction was announced on 9th February 2017 and represents the largest healthcare transaction in Central Europe since 2008. It is also the largest private equity exit in the Czech and Slovak markets since MidEuropa’s sale of its stake in T- Mobile CZ in 2014.
Alpha Medical is the #1 provider of laboratory diagnostics in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, offering a full range of routine and specialised tests and operating a fully integrated procurement and workflow system. During Mid Europa’s ownership, Alpha continued its pro-active market consolidation, with EUR 120 million invested in 27 add-on acquisitions and capital expenditures. The Company has more than doubled the number of laboratory analyses it performs annually – to over 55 million tests during 2016, and has increased employment by more than 550 professionals, to well over 1,550.
The transaction execution was led by Viktoria Habanova, with the support of Filip Kisdobranski and Przemyslaw Krenczyk.
