CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre advised Vivalto Santé Group in its acquisition of 100% of the share capital in Clinique Chirurgicale Val d'Or from Foch Santé Investissements, operating the clinic of the same name in Saint Cloud (France), specialising in thoracic surgery.
The seller is part of the Foch hospital group.
The rationale behind this acquisition, and that of the Clinique Chirurgicale Victor Hugo on 25 September last, for Vivalto Santé is to pursue its growth in the Ile de France region, building on its 2012 acquisition of the Centre Médico-Chirurgical de l’Europe in Port Marly, Yvelines.
Vivalto Santé also has a significant presence in the west of France with nine facilities located in the Brittany, Normandy and Pays de la Loire regions. In addition, it owns the Clinique Générale d’Annecy, in Haute Savoie, and is preparing to further boost its portfolio with a deal to purchase the Polyclinique de Rillieux near Lyon.
With revenue totalling €260 million, the group has 2,500 employees and 800 practitioners.
Vivalto Santé is headed up by Daniel Caille, one of the founders of Générale de Santé.
Vivalto Santé was advised on the legal and tax aspects of the transaction by CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre, with Arnaud Hugot (partner) and Clarisse Thiolon for corporate aspects, Jean-Charles Benois and Eva Aubry for tax questions, Ludovique Clavreul and Céline Martinez for employment law and Sandra Kabla for real-estate law.
Vivalto Santé was advised by Deloitte for financial due diligence with Alban Calbanis and Cécile Rémy.
The seller received legal advice from Solférino Associés with Bernard-Olivier Becker (partner) and Fouad M. Bellaaroussi (partner).
