CMS advises Sirion Biotech shareholders on acquisition by PerkinElmer

15/09/2021

Munich – Listed US company PerkinElmer, Inc. has acquired SIRION BIOTECH, a leading global provider of viral vector-based technologies for cell and gene therapies. Sirion has established a strong portfolio of licensed vector technologies leveraged by over a dozen major pharmaceutical and biotech players researching more than 25 diseases and conditions. As part of the transaction, shareholders including High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), Creathor Venture, KfW and Bayern Kapital sold their stakes in the firm, which is based in Martinsried near Munich. The shareholders had held an equity interest in SIRION since 2007 resulting from several venture capital rounds of financing.

A CMS team headed by lead partners Stefan-Ulrich Müller and Dr Michael Wangemann advised and represented the shareholders in SIRION BIOTECH on all legal aspects of selling all their shares. The Munich-based CMS venture capital team regularly advises life science companies and their shareholders, particularly on financing rounds, including venture debt transactions, and on exits.
