NEXTCLIN­ICS ad­vised by CMS team on ac­quis­i­tion of IVF-Zen­tren Prof. ZECH, a group of clin­ics for re­pro­duct­ive medi­cine

01/08/2018

Stuttgart – NEXTCLINICS INTERNATIONAL GmbH has acquired IVF-Zentren Prof. ZECH, a group of private clinics specialising in reproductive medicine. The transaction is currently awaiting approval from the Austrian competition authorities. The parties agreed not to disclose details of the purchase price.

An international CMS team headed by lead partner Dr Christoph Lächler provided NEXTCLINICS with cross-border advice on all legal aspects of negotiating the purchase agreement, merger control and reinvestment in NEXTCLINICS by the vendor family, plus legal due diligence.

The transaction and associated transfer of the locations in Niederuzwil (Switzerland), Bregenz, Salzburg (both Austria), Cologne (Germany), Vaduz (Liechtenstein), Pilsen (Czech Republic) and Meran (Italy) will double the size of NEXTCLINICS. It will also make the company a leading provider of in-vitro fertilisation in Europe.

NEXTCLINICS operates a network of modern and highly specialised healthcare facilities. With sites in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic, it offers treatments primarily around fertility, allergology, clinical immunology, pneumology and related fields. In addition to reproductive medicine, the company also operates hospitals, medical laboratories and a network of blood sampling and tissue collection centres.
